George & Wendy Show
Wendy Parker's pictorial lookback in video over memorable moments from 2012 -- to ring in 2013. Happy new year!
"Lying to the kids is perfectly alright when it involves fairy tales.... It's not OK to lie to kids about things they need to know."
The things we're willing to tell dispatch to get home.
"Life on the road is never boring" -- just wait till the kids and in-laws see the stocking stuffers Parkers picked up in a Kansas truck stop.
"We throw change into to it every once in a while to please the black hole gods so they don't decide to devour the entire truck."
Particularly if you happen to be traveling through bayou country, home of the LSU Tigers.
An encounter in a store results in the perfect Christmas gift Wendy could have asked, a true appreciation for the meaning of the season.
"Some people are good at being sick. They can suffer in silence and carry on, even when they feel like crap on a cracker. I am definitely not one of these people."
