Things were very tense down at the Kranks moncler cheap , according to Spike.
Vic called Ned Becker, who'd been alerted by Walt Scheel, and soon the three of them were on a conference call, with Walt and Ned maintaining visual contact with the Krank home.
'She just left again, in a hurry,' reported Walt. 'I've never seen Nora speed away so fast.'
'Where's Luther?' asked Frohmeyer moncler coats cheap .
'Still inside,' answered Walt. 'Looks like they've finished with the tree. Gotta say, I liked it better at the Trogdons'.'
'Something's going on,' said Ned Becker.
Nora had a case of wine in her shopping cart, six bottles of red and six bottles of white, though she wasn't sure why she was buying so much. Who, exactly, was going to drink it all moncler jackets cheap ? Perhaps she would. She'd picked out the expensive stuff too. She wanted Luther to burn when he got the bill. All this money they were going to save at Christmas, and look at the mess they were in.
A clerk in the front of the wine shop was pulling, the blinds and locking the door. The lone cashier was hustling the last customers through the line. Three people were ahead of Nora moncler jackets sale , one behind. Her cell phone rang in her coat pocket. 'Hello,' she half-whispered.
'Nora, Doug Zabriskie.'
'Hello, Father,' she said, and began to go limp. His voice betrayed him.
'We're having a bit of a problem over here,' he began sadly moncler jackets on sale . 'Typical Christmas Eve chaos, you know, everybody running in different directions. And Beth's aunt from Toledo just dropped in, quite unexpected, and made things worse. I'm afraid it will be impossible to stop by and see Blair tonight.'

'That's too bad,' Nora managed to say with just a trace of compassion moncler sale . She wanted to curse and cry at the same time. 'We'll do it another time.'
'No problem, then?'
'Not at all, Father.'
They signed off with Merry Christmases and such moncler jackets men , and Nora bit her quivering lip. She paid for the wine, then hauled it half a mile to her car, grumbling about her husband every heavy step of the way. She hiked to a Kroger, fought her way through a mob in the entrance, and trudged down the aisles in search of caramels.
She called Luther, and no one answered. He'd better be up on the roof.
They met in front of the peanut butter moncler jackets , both seeing each other at the same time. She recognized the shock of red hair, the orange-and-gray beard, and the little, black, round eyeglasses, but she couldn't think of his name. He, however, said, 'Merry Christmas, Nora,' immediately.
