Dad quit work forever last Friday! Hard to believe. Mom and Dad had a big party at the pub where Mom plays Irish fiddle, and they invited their "one-handed" friends (you know, I can count my best friends on the fingers of one hand). Well, they need both Mom and Dad's hands! Mom has been saying for the last year she has a long "honey do" list for Dad. So our friend Lynn brought Dad Ms. Honey Dew! She is going to help with the list... (that is mom in the background)
Our other good friend Janet (she has two great woofies, Roslyn and Tully, named for Tullimore Dew) is a great cook. She baked Dad a cake. When she asked Dad what kind he wanted, he said "You know, one of those kinds that a naked lady jumps out of." Dad! So Janet put this box on top and Dad cranked the handle..... (that is her standing up)
And out jumped a troll! Janet said it as suppose to be naked, but the company she ordered it from goofed up. Yes, that is Mom in the background in the glasses with the big mouth!
But the Troll did wish him luck!
They brought the troll home and we got to practice whapping it! First Kavan tried...
I thought I'd better investigate....
Then I gave it a whap...
Kavan looked hungry!
And he attacked! The troll was great fun!
Now Dad is home full time, it is great! Mom still is working, but is starting to spend more time home. She doesn't have any pictures from St. Patrick's night, but I know she had fun, as she had a headache the next morning, and had a hard time going to work!
