Becoming a Pike

Posted on September 9th, 2013 in Danielle



It’s hard to be a Pike.



You have to be stubborn…


Love the Hill Country outdoors…


Go water skiing….


Turn every vacation into a Grizwald experience and make reservations under the name of Griz…


Hunt squirrels and doves in the great wilds of suburbia.


If you’re a Pike man, you hunt and fish…


If you’re a Pike lady, you stalk the aisles of department stores and malls…


And Furr’s never goes out of style.


Poor Bryan.  He has no idea what he’s in for.


But as he’ll become a Pike this April, at least today he gets a taste of how Pikes celebrate birthdays– at least a week long, if not more.  There will be pie and cake and lunches galore and presents more.


Happy Birthday, Bryan– Pike style.



Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  A new fun week of whimsy awaits!
