My brother who lives in another province (in the northern part where it's really cold) started sending me these odd photos a few weeks before Christmas. There were of a couple of stuffed animals and there was a little story with each one. At first I kind of ignored them, and then I realized he was doing this on purpose and there was a story behind it! Each day he would pose them - like the "travelocity" gnome - snap a shot, write a story and email it to everyone. By about day 4, I finally figured out what he was doing. One of them was a picture of "Obie & Hitch" - his two characters, and they were head-first in the snow. There were tracks down the roof of their shed, so it looked like they skied off the roof like a ski jump. Well that triggered something with me - that's what we used to do off our garage if we had a lot of snow in the winter! I emailed him and he said I was the first one to figure it out. It was him and my older brother when they were kids - that's who "Obie & Hitch" were. They were always so competitive with each other! And to this day too even though they won't admit it and they're in their sixties! LOL!
Then I started looking forward to the photo each day - I even got the guys at work looking at them. So for his birthday coming in February, I'm going to do him a little book of his pictures and send it to him. This is the first one.
as Hitch described it. Obie said he hurt his shoulder and that Hitch was fine because he landed on "HIS HEAD". The good news is they both got home OK, and Don straightened out their sled.
