Gus and Maggie visit

Post by J.LeBrasseur » Thu Oct 25, 2018 4:25 pm

Gus and Maggie showed up last night for a few days to visit the LeBrasseur castle. Today he was granted access to the outer sanctum, tomorrow may let him in the helmet room???

Weird I remember inviting Maggie to come out and visit us, but Gus showed up as well...

Lucky for us tomorrow night Maggie is making us all Snitchel and Spätzle \:D/

Check out Gus's bunny slippers!

It must be a Bavarian. They always smell the worst!

Talk about letting "The Fox" into the hen house. I sure hope you are taking time off work James so you can keep a close eye on him! :D

Gus in that Viking boat is comical.

Reminds me of Chuck.

The best thing about visiting the LeB household is the rest of the family, although Kate tried to poke my eye out for fun and Eric boobytrapped my boots while I was wearing my favorite slippers. James had convince Lori that he only had about 80 helmets, I made the mistake of mentioning that there were over 200 in the collections room. The ensuing ruckus allowed me to slip down and remove a helmet from each shelf and space the remaining a few inches apart and I do not think James has even noticed yet.
OK, they are dolls, but they have kung fu grip! and weapons.
