Thanksgiving 2017

Capybara Turkey

Skipper’s Post:

Yesterday was what MelT calls a “holiday.” The name of the holiday was Thanksgiving. It’s supposed to be a day when everyone thinks about how great their life is. Everyone except for turkeys that is. They aren’t thinking about how great their lives are because their lives weren’t that great and they are dead. Dead pretty much trumps everything. I’m thankful I’m not a turkey. I’m thankful I’m not dead.

I’m starting this post with a cute photo of Prince Dobalob, aka Dobby(e) Winnick. Isn’t he adorable? Well, get over it because the whole rest of this post is not going to be about Dobby at all, it’s going to be about my journey to get to him. The journey starts in Buda, TX, detours through Los Angeles, and ends in Seattle with the famous capybara. This installment is about the LA section of the trip. I’d like to promise that it will be interesting, even though it is not about capybaras, but you will have to judge that for yourselves. Continue reading “Dobby(e) Trip: Part 1” »
