This was the email chain from my family yesterday, starting with a typo from my dad.
(Source): Tis the last day of L and K's 'practice' work week with LLB, while Steve wanders the Little Belt Mountains in Montana in search of freezer filling elf and/or deer and Sal sits in the sunshine admiring her Blue Angels - known here by a different name.
(Steve's wife): I hope he doesn't bring home an elf! :D
(Source):Godfrey Mighty! Mine eyes must be failing or mine finges misbehaving! But....wouldn't an elf be handy around the house?!!
(me): Like a house elf in Harry Potter?
(brother):Be careful though I think they have laws against mounting an elf in most states.
(uncle):Our elf season doesn't start in CT till after 12/25.
(sister): good thinking!!! cover all bases!!!
