The Never-Ending Road Trip

“They forgot to tell us that Vermont is actually moving”

Newark, Delaware to Killington, Vermont. Should only take 6 hours to drive, not too bad. Somehow though, the Megs managed to turn it into 9. Of course we left the cameras on, for as long as we could, before it got too dark. Here are some highlights of the footage from our dash cam (which is a Sony Action camera, we highly recommend!)

The Megs vs Ireland


The Megs are prepping for the next epic adventure to the motherland of Shenanigans, Ireland! We’ve got an awesome schedule full of alcohol, awesome views, and maybe even a round of golf thrown in the mix. The cameras ready ( including our brand new drone – the DJI Spark!) and our next travel video is in the works. Here’s a map of just some of our potential stops and events, much more to come as the trip gets closer!

All Hail Firefighter Jack McPartland

Is there a working fire? Ask Jack McPartland.

Is there a box about to be dispatched? Jack McPartland is already in the area.

Do you need additional resources? Someone call Jack McPartland

Is there work to be done? Jack McPartland already did it.


While leaving the safety of his comforting presence, taking the long walk to my vehicle from the office, I felt inspired to tell the world about Jack McPartland (his suggestion of mentioning him in our blog adding a bit more inspiration). Someday, all will know of the man, the myth, the legend.

To close, thank you for your hard work and all you do ,Firefighter McPartland.

Bisquickie the Pancake

​Have you ever been slapped in the face with a pancake? 

Of course the answer is no, right? What kind of question is that? Who would even do that to someone? 

……

I would.

Let me tell you a little story about the Megs and a giant pancake. Once upon a time, Tall Meg and Small Meg traveled to the magical land of Philadelphia, where contrary to popular belief it is not always sunny. On this particular day, it was cold and overcast, and the Megs went to cheer on Tall Meg’s brother in his first half marathon. After he finished the race, the entire Tall family and Small Meg went out for a celebratory breakfast. Can you guess yet what was on the menu? You got it; pancakes!! And let me tell you, they were delish! However they were also very filling, and Small Meg ended up with one entire pancake left that she just couldn’t finish. Rather than leave the poor fellow behind, we decided to take him with us. 

Now this didn’t go down the way you’re thinking, where the waitress comes back and asks if you’d like a box and then you package it up and put it in a bag and take it home with you. No no no. We paid the check and as we were all getting up from the table, Tall Meg grabbed the pancake off the plate and just carried it out of the restaurant. So now, here are the Megs, wandering the streets of Philadelphia just holding a giant pancake in their hand. Just another Meg day. 


Part 2, coming soon….

The History of Small Meg

Now don’t be fooled… Small Meg wasn’t always the tiny little goofball we’ve all come to know and love. 

Just a short time ago (get it, cause she’s short), MaryKate Selner was delivered by the stork at the ripe age of 8. Selner came into this world with her 5 foot stature, which made for some very awkward encounters until her peers caught up to her. But once they did, they all kept growing and left poor Selner behind. Rather than sobbing into a Lean Cuisine, Selner embraced her newfound smallness. 

After her stint with the lollipop guild, she quickly gained attention from a gnome union based out of southern Iowa. Word quickly spread amongst the red-hatted creatures until finally they presented Selner with her own red hat at the 157th Annual National Garden Gnome Convention. Overwhelmed by their presentation, Selner accepted their request for her to be their leader, and to this day Small Meg still holds that prestigious title. 

The Story of Tall Meg

It wasn’t long ago that Emily Mallon first emerged from her pod

Did someone say shots?

Just kidding, it was probably us. We thought our first real post should be an introduction of sorts to the Megs, as told by our very own awe inspiring imaginations. So to REALLY kick things off, I’m going to introduce you all to Tall Meg with a short biography…

It wasn’t long ago that Emily Mallon first emerged from her pod. Taking her first steps just moments after birth, the young sapling was clearly destined for greatness. Mallon immediately saw her potential from high above her peers and began to claim airspace.

Quickly gaining political power, young Mallon was pleased with her success, but still felt like her life was missing something.

Many nights passed as she continued to search high and low for an answer. Then suddenly one night an epiphany hit the gentle giant right in the shins…

Her spiritual awaking guided her to a dead stop… and then suddenly… far below sea level… almost out of reach… she found her forever friend.

Her majesty, leader of the garden gnomes, Kate Selner.

To be continued…
