In walks an officer wearing a hussar uniform. He has been on the front continuously now for months.

He spots a bold, brash French hussar nearby! Quickly he seizes the opportunity to move next to this kindred soul. Only he can understand the dangers of patrol work. Its a close business!

Right on the heels of this hussar a French officer enters. He is tired and worn out from the battle. He once proud looking mustache is now ragged and in need of a twirl. It is Marechal Paco Palomo and he is exhausted from hauling his family all over Massachusetts!

The hussars make way for this great man of France!

"Sit down mon Marechal," says the French hussar. "Tell us about your adventures."

"Ah, they are too frightening to tell! Family can be a trying business!"

"Mais oui, mon Marechal! I too have had to move my family all over Belgium."

"Yes, if only Muddy Jones would return the U-Haul! I might be able to save my horse from having to haul these large trunks!"

FM Sir Muddy Jones' horse is tied up outside but the Field Marshal himself is no where to be seen. Perhaps the time is not yet right for Marechal Paco and Sir Muddy to get reacquainted.

Hauling all over Massachusetts?

More likely, he became stuck in our wondrous traffic. If not for the fact that we must share the road with the likes of ourselves, we would be able to criss-cross the state in relative ease.[xx(]

The traffic in Massachusetts is bad because of all those victory parades for the sports teams. (says the Sox fan trapped in upstate NY)
