It looks like a bit of a winter storm is on it’s way to the area, just in time for the flurry of holiday activity. Everywhere we look people are gearing up for travel, for visitors and for festivities of one kind or another. 22.1

“Oh look, the neighbor bought a turkey, we should help him carry it…”

22.2

“Excuse me sir, out of the goodness of our hearts, and with no ulterior motives whatsoever, my sister and I would like to help you carry that turkey.”

My two turkeys and I have another long road trip on the docket tomorrow so they’ve got plenty of extra beach time in the past few days.

Extra beach time? Penny jumps for joy

22.4

Penny happily added a heavier accomplice to wrestle Eko, who was game for 2 on 1

“Hey Frank, before we leave, you sure you don’t need help with that turkey?”

  2. Enjoy your holidays and safe travels!

    Those looks are so funny! I can only imagine dreaming of helping with the turkey! Safe travels…again…if you keep going that route so often, there will soon be ruts in the pavement!
