Heinrich was elated to land a job as 4th assistant lifeguard at Der Spritzen Community Pool, but until he got his first paycheck, he didn't have enough money to buy flip-flops...

The first holiday dinner down in The Gloakenspiel's refinished basement might have been a more enjoyable time had the acoustics been a bit better and hadn't amplified sister-in-law Lorraine's ever-complaining voice...!
Nightfall was a few hours away yet, so Denise was still making her selection as to who was going to get to share the tent with her and who was going to have to cozy up alone in the Volkswagon. So far, thanks to Myron's socks, Calvin was winning.

Little-known new-wave garage band Teddie and the Tin Men got so close to a Hot 100 hit with "I'll Toot for You" until personal disputes led to cancelled engagements and eventual permanent fallout, though Archie (far left) did play keyboard synthesizer on a couple of demos until about 1991.

In what started out as a solely money-making arrangement, Gypsy organ grinder Salvatore later began to have romantic feelings for Chimene. However, he still wasn't able to establish 100% trust in the relationship, so he kept her on a pretty short leash...
After just a few too many sudden stops by Ida, with resultant hurtling around and landing, Pepper put in a request for more safety-oriented seating in her owner's car, making trips to the vet both more comfortable and also less frequent!
Maggiana preached the benefit of vitamin E to her offspring for the production of healthy (not to mention voluminous) hair, but she couldn't escape the feeling that they weren't completely listening or believing her.
Listen and learn from Maggiana!
