Grin and bear it

This is a cute little stuffed penguin that I bought on a trip to New Hope, Pa. I have a routine when I’m going to or passing through New Hope. I drive by the Christmas store to see if it’s open, then turn right into the alley just past it. Parking in a touristy Colonial town like New Hope can be difficult, but there's almost always an empty spot in this little known alley off the main street. This particular visit, the store was clearing out stock to make room for new goods, so there weren't many penguin ornaments, but they were all 60 percent off.
