He went to the airport

He went to the airport to pick up all his relatives who are visiting. The people there kept waving at his car while saying, "Move along. Move along." He circled the airport eight times when finally he called his waiting relatives on his cellphone. They'd been waiting out front for a while and he estimated he'd been by five times with them there.

He walked Gus. Gus was very, very quiet on their walk.

He got to the park and much of his family was in attendance. His nephew with his nephew's girlfriend. His Pad Squadder daughter was there. He figured 40 of the 40,000 were his family. His in-laws were going to celebrate their 60th anniversary the next day.
