Hey, do me a favor...

don't wear that

in front of aunt Cly, okay?

Why not?

Well, it's, uh...

it's a bit of a sore subject.

Your uncle Ned,

he was a little daffy,

And he claimed to have

seen the hoodoo.

Wait, really?

Yeah, so just, uh...

don't bring it up, okay?


all-Natural farm.

Herbs, flowers,

and essential oils."

It doesn't look much like

fall around here.

Well, this whole area

Is called

the siempre verde forest.

That means "always green"

in Spanish.


Hey, banana!

Hope she's home!

Was that a wild turkey?

Or was it aunt Cly's?

I don't know, bud.

We'll have to ask.

Do you think it'll bite?

Oh, I hope not!

Well, that one might.

All right...

Well... look what

the rain washed up.

I thought

maybe you, uh, got lost,

Or you got a better offer.

Hey, aunt Cly!

It's, uh...

it's good to see you.

All right, well,

I just have one question.

I know what you said

on the phone, but...

it's been a long time,

So why now?

No one died.

Well, I mean...

come on, it's thanksgiving!

- Yeah...

- Yeah!

And I told the kids

I really wanted to show them

A traditional family holiday,

you know,

Like we used to.


Kids, say hello

to your aunt Cly!

- Hi.

- Hi.

They grow up fast.

So you must be Annie.

Last time we met,

you were stinking up diapers,

And, uh...

and you!

You were just

an itch in your dad's pocket.

Well, aunt Cly,

still so colorful.



Okay, you've been feeding them

meat, haven't you?

Uh, meat?

Yeah, well, sometimes...

oh, Ronnie, I thought

you had more sense than that.

I mean, I can tell

just by looking at them,

They've been eating


and hot dogs.

We... we're not vegetarians,

but, you know, I...

but that stuff is nothing

but hormones and chemicals.

That's why kids
