IMG_2877-1 A few nights ago, the Wienermobile stopped by my house. Because it is perfectly normal in my life to have a giant food product on wheels in front of my home. The two ‘Hot Doggers”, Maria and Patrick were just finishing up their entire year on the road, and I invited them over for dinner. And no we did not have hot dogs.

Being an official Hot Dogger is a huge honor and commitment. Thousands of people apply for the job- and only a handful are chosen each year.

Needless to say, both my kids are planning on being Hotdoggers when they graduate college. And I think that would be FRANKtastic. : )
