http://www.palmbeachdailynews.com/n...es-only-stern-wife-spend-holiday-local/npcz6/ By Shannon Donnelly Daily News Society Editor Yes, that was new Palm Beach taxpayer Howard Stern and his comely wife, Beth, walking hand-in-hand on the bike trail. The couple, whom spies say had eyes only for each other, spent his Thanksgiving off-week at their beachfront manse in the North End, where Howard got a break from the gray New York weather and Beth prepared for the publicity tour for her second children’s book, Yoda Gets A Buddy. The animal-loving duo reportedly had a meatless — and ethical — Thanksgiving dinner, which we might try someday as long as USDA doesn’t re-classify vodka, wine or shampoo as meat. The pair returned to New York with some extra baggage in the form of 11 rescued kittens, which Beth fostered and are now on their way to forever homes — not nearly as nice as the home they just left, but cats, fortunately, are not judgmental. Oh, wait. Yes they are. Yoda Gets A Buddy is available now at Barnes & Noble and on Amazon. All proceeds benefit the North Shore Animal League America.
