Most Often Asked Question about Frankie

Submitted by Connor, Justin, and Karl, age 9 and Seirra, age 10

How old is Frankie?

I am proud to say I am 9 years old! That would be 63 in human years. Gee, guess I am close to retirement age! But don't worry, I have no plans of retiring anytime soon. I love meeting new kids and making new friends.
My birthday is August 20, 1999.

From the Grade 4's...Dear Frankie...we loved being to see you and your mom yesterday. We can't believe that you are 63 years old in human years! You look very good for you age..we didn't notice any grey hair!

When it is your birthday, is your birthday cake made out of popcorn?

Thank you for your nice comment that I look good for 63 years old. I do have a bit of gray under my chinny-chin chin, but not too many. Whew!
My birthday is August 20. I never did have a cake made out of popcorn! I will have to start pestering my mom about that for next years birthday! I think a popcorn cake and a DOG movie would be swell!
