Barry wishes you all a Happy Bastille Day!  Freedom is awesome!

Jimmy and Eddie were all about celebrating too.

Barry Visits Graeme Park/Keith House

I like this historic house a lot.  It was built-in 1728 by the Keith Family.

The property was a huge asset during the Revolutionary War for both Washington’s and Howe’s Forces.  The Patriots used this property during the local battles.  When the British took over the area with their victories against the Americans after the Battle of Brandywine.  They set up encampment here using the farms resources.

It was a hot and steamy afternoon but well worth the trip.  Stop by if you are ever in the Horsham area!

Christmas Fun – Part 2 – A Christmas Carol

We went with the Roomie to see ‘A Christmas Carol’ at the historic Walnut Street Theater.

Mr. Nigel Murray loves the theater.  He said it reminded him of his days in London.

We all wondered if he wore clothing in London?  It’s not a question one just blurts out and he wasn’t being forth coming.

Pablo gave the show 12 nubs up!  He was loving the songs and chuckling along like the rest of us.  It was a wonderful day In Town.  We are all starting to feel the Christmas spirit!  God Bless us Everyone!

Forced Retirement

It is with sad heart that after 12 years of travel and adventure Bjorn Maelstrom is being forced to retire.  This weekend saw his worst injury today.

While visiting Historic Hope Lodge to ring in the fun Christmas Season Bjorn suffered another radical amputation.  If you follow his travels you know that he’s lost both hands, his tail, his nose and his hair due to many individual circumstances.  This time he has lost his arm.  He is running out of parts to fall off.

So for his future safety and under much protest the old boy is now shelf bound.  His family and friends will keep up the travels and adventures but for the foreseeable future Bjorn will be a quiet old man in retirement 😦  This makes us all sad since he was the one who started it all.  Hang in there our Norwegian friend.

Getting Ready For Christmas

Every year the Roomie reads us Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol”.

It’s an old-timer kind of tradition but we humor her.

Fear got all scared because there were ghosts in the story.  No matter how much we tried to assuage him it was for naught.  The little dude is destined to be afraid of everything.  I guess that’s why his name is Fear.

Eddie doesn’t get the whole let a rodent predict the weather angle but it looks fun.

Jeff is all about the 130th Anniversary of the event.

Linc decided to use the Magic 8-Ball to make sure Phil’s prediction was correct.  He got a strong “Most Likely”.  I’ll take it!

Patches O’Hurley couldn’t wait to get this day started.  Doing the Irish Jig is his favorite dance so today he is ready to breakout his tap shoes and start Jigging!

It snowed this morning but the boys feel certain it won’t hinder the festivities planned for later!  Come on people…go get your IRISH ON!!!

UPDATE:

Just in from the Irish Government…Americans Suck and can’t spell.  Being American Elves/Gnomes we are part of that suckage and have fixed the faux pas.  Happy St. Paddy’s Day…y’all!!!
