Trouble At H.Q.

STAR DATE: 93 Star filled nights till Christmas

Upon arrival at the front door this morning, to do our daily chores, the misses and I found that someone had removed our galoshes from the closet, where we store them, and replaced them with four rather large pine cones. Figuring it was just a joke we began a careful sweep of the house but we soon realized that the prankster (who ever it might be) had not left any other tell tale signs of our galoshes and they obviously were gone... Being a quick thinker, I devised a plan and we were forced to unwrap 2 new sets of tennis rackets and strap them to our feet with tinsel to use as make shift snow shoes... This done we grabbed our heavy parkas and proceeded outdoors where we found a fresh trail of four foot prints left by our galoshes in the new snow.. Following the tracks we carefully trudged through the treacherous snow around to the back of our house. There we found that the tracks led straight to the front door of Reindeer Head Quarters and that the tracks never came back out.At this point the misses became quite alarmed. (what if something has happened to the reindeer and they are using our galoshes to try and frame us) Doing my best to calm the misses nerves I suggested that we gather up several rather large snowballs (to protect ourselves) and and then head into Reindeer H.Q. to find the culprit.

Shivering....huddled together...we slowly opened the door to Reindeer H.Q.
