Diner Frank’s Birthday Luncheon

This past week we held yet another office luncheon, this time in celebration of Frank’s birthday! Yay!

Frank is not only the face of our company, he’s also a fantastic musician ‘n song writer, Ukulele and “Whirly-Gig” craftsman, the ULTIMATE “D-I-Y” handy man, and an all-around super cool, super awesome ‘n GREAT guy! Oh, and he’s also through-and-true, very proudly Portuguese, which I am 50% by blood as well. Podagees in da’ house!
