Hank has been after me to come to this event for a few years now. I'll have to check the family schedule. Sounds like a great time!

You can put me down Eric, been looking forward to this since the last one. Sure hope you can make it Brian. It would sure be nice to get a break from Al once in awhile. I'll have to see if  the dog is willing to move off the porch for you Al.

My Lab's a good walker, great runner and a powerfully strong swimmer, but I think she might not think too highly of trying to pack this old man that far......

Hey Al, If Russ thinks he needs a little more room, I think we could move you out behind the old shed. I don't think the skunk'll mind none.

Bob, my friend, where in the world have you been hiding?  :Doh!

Geeesh, this is going to be a real shindig with all these fine folks showing up. That skunk just might have to share his bed after all.
Shinin, right shinin it is!
