After playing HOS numerous times, I have now gathered enough locks, chains and keys to secure my new armory to my satisfaction.

Both the tunnel door and trap door is locked and chained. I placed the rug back over the trap door.

And the keys I placed in a pouch attached to Big Kitty's collar.

"We are off to the Tea Room!" I opened my carpet bag and placed some grenades in it. The four kittens immediately jumped inside.

Big Kitty remains outside as my protection from the guards. I placed a halter on him and attach a few more grenades from my new stash. Then I locked the room and went downstairs to the Tea Room.

"Good Afternoon, Mrs. Fletcher. Can I have some food and a cup of tea?"

I sat down in one of the chairs and Big Kitty settled down at my feet. The room became silent as all eyes locked on to my 350 pound orange and black striped cat.

I surreptitiously opened my carpetbag and Big Kitty immediately jumped inside

I'm soooooo worried about my pigeon and Grim ....... time to test flying again.....

The attached wings feel both exhilarating and new ..... I try to lift off and they don't seem to be working.....flutter, flutter, flutter ...... nope .....still on the ground. The Genie said there may be a "break in" time because they were unused for so long ..... so I sit down and try to do some wing exercises .... lift wings .... flutter.....release.... lift wings .... flutter .... release.... Think: Small ...... Think: Small .....

I gently flutter the wings (thinking small) ...... and I gradually shrink in size as my wings lift me off the flying boat ..... the pigeons are startled and fly out of range -- not understanding this new phenomenon, yet unafraid -- gradually the wings flutter faster (faster than a hummingbird) and I just appear to be a bright, glowing light (a little larger than a fire fly)....so off I fly to the Tea Room where I soon fine my Godson (playingthegame) sipping a cup of tea.

As I approach his ear, he swats at me (thinking I am a pesky fly --- well, I may be pesky but I'm no fly!)....... I gently whisper in his ear ..... This is your Fairy Godmother -- I now have my wings back and I can fly in case you are curious --- Have you seen Grim lately? I sent her a message by pigeon some time ago as she sat on a bench in the Town Square. The pigeon has not returned and I found neither of them at the Town Square. The message the pigeon carried was about the tunnels beneath. There is an entrance.............oh, dear....my wings are so tired (they still need to build up endurance) ..... and I must go ..... please lead a search party for her <---I say as I quickly fly away.

Back in my room, we get settled back in to play and rest. Buddy and I play a game of tug in which I let him win, probably more than I should. After our game, he disappears under the bed again so I time him. 5 minutes later, her comes back out with a ball, jumps into my lap and drops it next to me. I get the hint and gently toss the ball close to the floor, thus begins our game of fetch. Surprisingly, I don’t have to make him share the ball. We play for several minutes before I ended the game to get Buddy to settle down before something gets broken.

I turned to my desk to write in my computerized journal and saw in the corner of my eye Buddy run under the bed. That was it. I closed the computer an made up my mind what to do.

I got up, stripped the bed of all the sheets and covers, and lifted each of the mattresses off of the bed frame to see what was there. I was determined to find where my pet disappeared to under there. What did I find, you ask? Nothing. No holes, no open trap door, not even a shining portal af any kind. Even Buddy was missing.

That was when I settled on the couch to watch and see what happened when Buddy returned. I did have to wait long. A part of the floor near the headboard shimmered and the puppy came through it carrying another bowl that he brought to me. Guess he was tired of the plate I put his food on to feed him. That in mind, I went over to the spot and discovered that I could put my hand through the floor.

I felt around and discovered it was too small for me so I got a flashlight. I laid down on the floor, turned on the light and stuck it along with my face into the whole. I found a couple of steps and a corridor but I couldn’t tell where it went.

Standing up, I said “so that is where you came from and where you go.” Buddy just cocked his head to one side and looked at me like I was nuts. I put everything back after that. 1 mystery solved.

I WENT TO THE DOORWAY I HOPED WENT TO THE KITCHEN, IT WAS THE ONLY OPEN ONE IN THE ROOM. I CALLED "MRS. FLETCHER! MRS. FLETCHER." THEN SHE ASKED WHAT I WANTED I HAD NOT SEEN HER YET AS I WAS NOT IN THE KITCHEN JUST A LITTLE HALL. "OH! I AM SORRY FOR YELLING LIKE THAT BUT I WAS NOT SURE THIS WAS THE WAY TO THE KITCHEN." "WELL YOU FOUND IT. NOW WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU." I TOLD HER HER COOKIES WERE LOVELY, BUT I REALLY NEEDED SOMETHING MORE THAN SWEETS. DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING HERE I COULD MAKE A MEAL OF. OR DO I HAVE TO WAIT TILL I HAVE A ROOM AND DO THEY BRING FOOD TO IT.

I REALLY DO NOT KNOW HOW THINGS WORK HERE YET.


I LOOKED AT HER AND ASKED "DID YOU SEE CAP'S NEW BRITCHES." THEN CHANCED THE WORD TO ONE OTHERS WOULD KNOW " A PANTS.

THEY WERE A SPECIAL ORDER. PADDED AND STRIPS ROUND AND AROUND STRIPES.

HE PUT THEM ON BUT PUT HIS TORN AND BATTED PANTS OVER THEM.

HOPE THEY SAVE HIS BACKSIDE IF HE FALL ON IT AGAIN.

I AM MAKING A PAIR LIKE THEM FOR PTG. HE SEEM TO NEED EXTRA PADDING ALSO.

I WAS ALMOST OUT OF COLORED YARN WHEN SOME ELVES CAME AND CRAWLED UNDER MY CHAIR. WHERE I HAVE BEEN STUFFING ALL THE THING THAT WERE FLYING AROUND. I HAD MADE CAT TOYS OUT OF THE SNOWMEN AND TREES. HAD TO GO ALL OVER LOOKING FOR THE BELLS

I DO HOPE THE PETS THAT ATE THE GINGERBREAD TREES DID NOT EAT TO MANY OF THEM.

THEY ARE UNRAVELING THE SOCKS AND MAKING THEM INTO BALLS OF YARN SO NOW I CAN FINISH PTG'S PADDED PANTS.

HE AND CAP MAY HAVE A FIT WHEN THEY FIND OUT I STUFFED THE PANTS WITH DUST BUNNIES. BUT THERE WERE SO MANY EVERYWHERE AND THE ORDER FOR CAP'S WAS THEY WERE TO BE PADDED.

OH! I LOOKED UP AT MRS. FLETCHER AS SHE STOOD HOLDING A PLATE OUT TO ME. I HAD NOT EVEN NOTICED IT BEFORE.

OOOHHHH! A NICE PIECE OF MEAT, SOME CHEESE, AND WHERE OH WHERE DID SHE GET THAT CHUNK OF HOME BAKED BREAD. AND THERE WERE NOT 1 BUT 2 VEGGIES.

IT LOOKED AND SMELLED WONDERFUL I ASKED IF I COULD EAT HERE IN THE KITCHEN SINCE THERE WERE SO MANY ANIMALS IN THE TEA ROOM. I HATE TO NOT SHARE WITH THEM . IF I DID THERE WOULD BE NONE FOR ME.

SHE SHOWED ME TO THE TABLE. I SAT AND ATE MY FILL IT WAS WONDERFUL.

THIS MAY BE A PLACE FOR THE SLIGHTLY NUTS. OR JUST STRESSED.

IT IS STILL BETTER THAN LIVING WITH MY SON. NO ONE THERE COOKS.
I AM NOT REALLY SAFE AROUND A STOVE ANY LONGER WITHOUT SOMEONE TO HELP ME WATCH THE FOOD.

FINISHED I RINSE MY PLATE FORK AND KNIFE. AND GO BACK TO MY CORNER.

Now I am beginning to get rather worried about Grim’s non-appearance and the thought just sent to me from the Crow aloft about one of her ferret’s chatter.

It is time for action!

Rescue Grim before she ends up on our unworthy CEO’s Sunday lunch menu.

I am convinced that is where she will be heading: the main Castle kitchens!

As Cap’n Bob is still in la-la land it is up to me to form a plan.

Just as I turn to the others, the Tea Room door opens in in walks another wayfarer.

As she looks around, she soon settles into into the ambience of the room and seems to know Mrs Fletcher.

It is what she has by her side that causes a hushed gasp throughout the room.

One extremely large yellow and black striped feline pads over to the spare table next to the door and flops under it, while glancing VERY intently around her.

For a possible meal?

Of the various pets cavorting on the floor there is now no sign. Just rather bulges in their owners clothes.

The shimmer under our knitting lady has ceased and the diligent elves seemed to have formed a corral with needles pointing outward.

It is then I hear voices just outside the door.

“I am sure one of those cussed escaped inmates dived in here”

Another of them chimes in:
“This will be easy and we collect another bonus for our troubles.
“But shall we wait for reinforcements?”
“No! Why share the bounty?”

“OK! You first and I will catch any possible escapee”

The door is flung opn and in two very burly Praetorian guards leap into the Room.

“There! By that table - stand up and put your hands in the air, you are well and truly caught”

I get a silent message from my Crow partner:
“The girl has just communicated by thought to HER pet under the table.
“Just two words:
Protect - attack!”

There is a yellow blur from under the table and with an ear splitting roar one 350lb feline erupts out into the open!

Although not in the firing line ourselves, all of us (apart from Cap’n Bob who seems to be oblivious to the whole situation ) try to make ourselves invisible.

None more so that the two boisterous guards, who show that they can be VERY fleet of foot when necessary.

With everything now under control once more, the rather large pet settles back under the table.

I manage to croak:
“Thank you and welcome to our abode!”

Okay this is craponacracker because I have been here yelling my head of with orders for everyone to follow because we are in dire staits here, there is danger around us yet not one here seems to be bothered about it ,, so what good am I doing here when I am supposed to be the leader of this looney tunie group yet NO ONE listens to me
Prove I am standing shoutin at an empty table??
That is when I see a streak of yellow and hear the LOUD CRASH BOOM BANG then silence and I look at two disemboweled Gaurds NOw how ih Hatis did they get here??
Lord love a hairy duck seems there are more ways than The Highway To H*** to get to us okay time to take action as I grab a can opener and attack the prone Gaurds and hack them into Shards of metal,,, now where is a magnit when you need it but I do not need one because PTG'S broom is a whirlwind swiping up the Shards and throwing them in the garbage can .. As I look around my jaw drops it is like nothing happened here all quiet okay enough is enough ATTENTION INMATES CONE HERE THIS MINUTE AND YES ANGEL THAT MEANS YOU STOP WRITING SO FRANTIC AND PTG SET THE CUP DOWN AND GET YOUR %^^% OVER HERE OR I WILL STRIPE YOU OF SECOND IN COMMAND and all see I mean it my face is so red it would glow as a beacon in the Harbour.
I look at everyone around me .. okay I said everyone so where is Grim???
PTG leans in and tells me about the message he got from His Fairy God Mother Shoced at what I just hears I fought against Gib's slaping him AND YOU JUST SAT THERE DRINKING ONE OF YOUR CRAZY TEAS???
All right time to get order back here first off to the new inmates untill you get to know the routine here Angel will make you all a set of rules and after seeing what just happened I want them followed to a T understood??
You know this is The Tea Roon run by Mrs.Fletcher and she has strict rules when it come to her Tea Room and HER KITCHEN so they are to be followed , Meals are served at am 12 noon and 5 pm but she always has tea, coffe and treats for those who just want to visit and get to know the rest of us,,, your rooms are in The Hospital Wing and I think you all found yours except charlieisr now understand she has trouble seeing so I will assign one of you to escort to and from her room now if you need anything changed in your room you may do so and if you need help all you have to do is ask PTG Angel or Pup aka dandydog I must insist that if any one at any time see's any thing out of the norm let it be known there is danger all around

us and that crazy mad man Murk and his uggly kid is finding more ways to get to us
So number one on the list is to get the new inmates setteled and Angel make sure they get the agenda and seeing you seem to be able to sketch make them a floor plan please.
Number two when we get the new inmates setteled in we have to find and rescue Grim
for what I have been told she is in bad trouble and we can not lose her she is a very important part of this family.
PTG write down every thing your Fairy God Mother told you so I can make a recon to bring Grim home,, Amethyst, virginiabreeze is it??and charlieisr please follow me and I will get you setteled in and if you already have a room please tell me know and if you have noticed any thing strange in your room any noise or movement in closets or the floors I am sure Murk is making more tunnels and we need to find and block them
it is the only way I can see him getting in here because Frost is on gaurde on the iced over Dome and nothing can pass him..
One more thing untill we find and rescue Grim we will use the buddy system no one and I mean NO ONE go anywhere alone,, second point you new inmates will be given an Amulet and your Pets will be micro chiped by the Petdoc so we are in contact at all times , The Amulets will allow you to talk to the rest of us and we in turn you,,, Angel will show you how they work just remember have them on at all times it is our saftey line Here I will show you ,, I hold my Amulet and rub it and think Doc please join me at The Tea Room ASAP .....with a minute Doc is coming through The Tea Room Door,,,, Yes Cap you need another shot??? No it is not for me you have some new pets to chip, there owners will bring them to you....
Okay lets get moving we have a lot to do and time runing out,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Oh, dear..... I was unable to give the complete message to my Godson because my wings just got too tired ..... I tried to do too much on my first time using them.....

And I also realize that I really should have tried to contact the Cap'n himself because, after all, he is the one with the soldier experience ... he would know more what to do than a "Chief Sweeper Upper" would know.

So.....I request the services of another pigeon to deliver the following message to the Cap'n himself ......

Cap.....
I saw Grim in a telephone booth and it was only after she left (she went to a bench in the Town to sort things out), that I realized it was a "special" booth. So, I sent her a coded message by my favorite pigeon.....that pigeon has not returned and I fear for Grim because she is now no longer at that bench. ..... The content of the message I sent to her is as follows:

That telephone booth in which you recently stood is in fact an entrance into one of the underground tunnels....I know not if this is a critical tunnel, but it probably should be explored to see what is hidden below or where it leads. (Sometimes the Genie naps when we visit--gotta love those special cookies!--he talks in his sleep.)

The "key" to opening the entrance is JennyWren (of course) ..... just dial her numbers (536699736) and the floor will descend .... leaving you inside the tunnel.....but, beware and be prepared. I don't know if the floor will remain at that level for your return or if it will immediately ascend to be the bottom of the booth.

Perhaps it would be prudent to take with you the Cap'n or my Godson as additional protection.... that AuntieRoo with her dynamite filled jacket may also be a good candidate. But, please do not go alone! .......(signed Playingthegame's GodMother)


(I don't need to send it coded to you because you are safely in the Tea Room)

I do so hope you find Grim soon .....
PTG's Godmother

As we go back towards our rooms, Big Kitty is sticking close to me in full protective mode. I have yet to tell anyone Big Kitty is quite tame, except for where I am concerned. And although Big Kitty has been well fed the last few days, I have not . So the noon and evening meals are not being delivered, at least not to my room.

The Captain has mentioned tunnels and I certainly know of an entrance...

I touch my new amulet and think: "Captain? PTG? This is Breeze. I know where there is a tunnel entrance. I also know where there is a lovely room full of explosives and weapons. No meals however."

"That is, If you are interested."

OH, GOOD I CAN BRING MY PETS WELL AT LEAST SOME OF THE HERE. I DO MISS THEM I AM NOT SURE HOW WELL THEY ARE BEING CARED FOR AT MY SONS. LET'S SEE MY PONY, AND GRIFFIN IN CASE I WANT TO GO LOOK AROUND. MY BAT AND OWL TO KEEP WATCH AT NIGHT. MY DOGS AND CATS EVEN THAT SILLY CAT WITH WINGS. BECAUSE I REALLY MISS THEM. THE BABY MAMMOTH I CANT LEAVE HER SHE IS JUST A BABY. OH, YES THE FOX IF I WANT TO SNOOP AROUND HE WILL BE PERFECT AS A COMPANION. MY RAVEN CAN GATHER INTEL THERE ARE SO MANY OTHERS AROUND HER ONE MORE WILL NOT BE NOTICED. HE IS SO SMART. HE ALWAYS KNOWS WHERE I LEAVE THING. HE MAY COME IN HANDY TO FIND THE THINGS I NEED. I HOPE THE ELVES WOULD LIKE TO STAY WITH ME AFTER THEY FINISH UNRAVELING THE STOCKINGS.. I AM SURE WE WILL BE FINDING MORE OF THEM AROUND THE CASTLE. I WONDER WHAT ELVES EAT AND DRINK.

THEY DID DEFEND MY YARN WHEN THEY THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE SCATTERED. MUST GO LOOKING FOR BAGS TO PUT IT IN.

I HOPE THAT IS NOT TOO MANY AND THAT THEY KNOW HOW TO FEED THEM.

I LIKE THAT BIG CAT THOUGH NOT A BAD PET. BET IT EATS ALMOST AS MUCH AS THE BABY MAMMOTH DOES ONLY DIFFERENT STUFF.'

I STILL NEED SOME WAY TO CARRY ALL THE BALLS OF YARN THE ELVES HAVE MADE. I DO NOT WANT TO LEAVE IT HERE THEY MAY THINK I DO NOT APPRECIATE WHAT THEY HAVE DONE. I REALLY DO WITHOUT THEM I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FINISH PTG 'S PANTS. HOPE HE WILL SEE HOW HANDY THEY WILL BE. THEY WILL SAVE HIS BACKSIDE IF HE FALLS ON IT.

AND THEY ARE WARM. IT IS VERY COLD OUTSIDE AND NOT SO WARM IN HERE I FEEL THE COLD DRAFT EVERYTIME THE DOOR IS OPENED.

I MUST MAKE SOMETHING FOR MRS. FLETCHER FOR HER KINDNESS.
I KNOW IT WAS NOT MEAL TIME WHEN SHE FED ME.

SHE DOES MAKE VERY GOOD COFFEE.

I START GATHERING UP MY KNITTING. THE WHITE WOOL I CAN PUT IN THE PACKAGES. I HOPE I CAN GET ALL THIS YARN TO MY NEW ROOM AND SORT IT.

I TAKE OFF MY JACKET, AND MAKE A CARRY ALL OUT OF IT. OH, GOOD A COUPLE OF THE RED BALLS OF YARN WENT DOWN THE SLEEVES, STOPPED BEFORE THEY FEEL OUT, AH TOO BIG. I STUFF MORE IN THE SLEEVES. NOW I WONDER, YES, I HAVE SOME SAFETY PINS. I PEN THE SLEEVES TOGETHER LAY THE REST OF THE YARN IN IT ZIP IT AND PIN THE TOP AND BOTTOM. HUUUMMMM NOT BAD. I LOOK AT THE ELVES THEY LOOK DISAPPOINTED. I BEND DOWN TO SEE THEM AND ASK WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO WITH ME TO MY NEW ROOM. THERE WE CAN SORT THE YARN, AND MAYBE FIND MORE SOCKS. I AM SURE THERE MUST BE MORE ALL OVER THE CASTLE THAT NO ONE WANTS.

THEY GO INTO A HUDDLE AND DISCUSS WHAT I HAVE PROPOSED. I DO HOPE THE COME. A RATHER STOUT ELF COMES FORWARD AND SPEAKS. I CAN'T HEAR HIM HIS VOICE IS A SMALL AS HE IS. I PUT MY HAND DOWN MOTION FOR HIM TO CLIMB INTO IT. HE IS NOT SURE THE I POINT TO MY SHOULDER. TO INDICATE THAT IS WHERE I WILL PUT HIM. HE STEPS INTO MY HAND I PUT HIM ON MY SHOULDER. HE SPEAKS INTO MY EAR. HE HAS A DEEP VOICE WHICH I HAD NOT EXPECTED. THEN SAYS WE WILL TRY STAYING WITH YOU. I AM DELIGHTED. I SET THE JACKET DOWN AND POINT TO IT. AND SAY SOFTLY. CLIMB ABOARD. I DO NOT WANT YOU TO GET STEPPED ON AS WE GO TO MY NEW ROOM. I CAN MAKE YOU EACH A SOFT BED TO SLEEP IN. I USED TO DO THAT FOR MY DOLLS WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL. BUT WE WILL HAVE TO MAKE SURE MY PETS THAT WILL BE COMING TO STAY WITH ME UNDERSTAND. YOU ARE NOT TOYS. OR FOOD. THOUGH I AM NOT SURE THEY WOULD TRY TO EAT YOU.

NOW I NEED TO KNOW IS WHAT DO YOU EAT AND DRINK. SO I CAN ASK FOR IT FOR YOU.

THE SPOKESMAN STILL ON MY SHOULDER, REPLIED. WE EAT MOSTLY WHAT YOU DO. BUT WE HAVE A SWEET TOOTH, WE LOVE CANDY AND HONEY ANY THING SWEET.

GOOD I SAY. I DO KNOW WHERE TO FIND CANDY. SO THAT IS TAKEN CARE OF.
SO YOU CAN SHARE MY MEALS I AM NOT A BIG EATER. EVERYONE TRIES TO FEED ME MORE THAN I CAN EAT. I DO HATE WASTE SO I TRY TO EAT WHAT I AM GIVEN. NEVER CAN I EAT IT ALL.

I SAT THE ELF DOWN WITH THE OTHERS THEY CLIMBED ON TO THE MAKESHIFT BUNDLE OF YARN.

I DO HOPE SOMEONE WILL CARRY THE BUNDLES OF WHITE WOOL. THOSE HAVE A VERY SPECIAL PURPOSE. I KNOW DOT WENT TO A LOT OF TROUBLE TO GET THEM.

I WILL HAVE TO PAY HER BACK SOME HOW.

WELL I AM AS READY AS I CAN GET TO GO TO MY NEW QUARTERS.


 

Re:Ready for the special room

I couldn’t sleep so I headed down to the tea room followed by Buddy with the hope of getting some chamomile tea. When we got there, Captain Randy was yelling what sounded like orders and a rant but it seemed like I was the only one to hear him at first. That changed after a bit and he started to make sense and when I heard my name, I started to pay attention

I picked Buddy up to keep him out of trouble and followed orders. I found out from the doctor that Buddy is probably 10 weeks old and in excellent health. I got my amulet and let Captain Randy know about the small whole and tunnel under my bed in my room. Warm tea in me, a chip in Buddy and an amulet around my neck, we headed back to the room and to bed.

I WONDERED WHO TO ASK ABOUT MY SMALL ZOO OF ANIMALS. ROO SEEMED BUSY LISTENING TO CAP SO I COULDN'T ASH HER. WOULD MRS. FLETCHER KNOW. SHE WAS STANDING IN THE DOORWAY TO THE KITCHEN.

NO, MAYBE SHE JUST RAN THE TEA ROOM. I GUESS I WILL HAVE TO ASK THE CAP WHEN HE STOPS FOR AIR. I MOVE CLOSER TO THE TABLE. I HAVE PTG'S PADDED PANTS ON THE TOP OF MY BUNDLE OF YARN. KEEPING ONE EYE ON THE BUNDLES OF WHITE WOOL I HAND THE PANTS TO PTG. GET A FUNNY STARE. TELL HIM HE SHOULD WEAR THEM EITHER AS PANTS OR UNDER SOME LIKE THE CAP. THEY ARE WARM AND PADDED TO HELP KEEP HIS BACKSIDE SAFE.. IF HE NEEDS HATS OR SWEATERS LET ME KNOW I CAN MAKE THEM. I HAVE LOTS OF YARN FROM THE CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS.

HE LOOKED AT MY MAKE SHIFT CARRY BAG, TO SEE THE BALLS OF YARN. THEN HE SAW THE ELVES PEEKING OUT OF IT AT HIM.

I SAID THEY WILL STAY WITH ME FOR HOWEVER LONG THEY WISH TO.

CAP WAS STILL BARKING ORDERS. SO I LOOKED AGAIN AT PTG. EXCUSE ME BUT I WOULD LIKE TO SEND FOR SOME OF MY PETS. ONLY ABOUT 10. BUT I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE I CAN KEEP THOSE THAT AREN'T CATS OR DOGS. OR FLY.

IS THERE A STABLE HERE FOR THEM THAT IS SAFE FOR THEM. IT IS ONLY A GRIFFIN, BABY MAMMOTH AND MY PONY. AND IS THERE FOOD HERE FOR THEM.

I STOOD WAITING HE JUST LOOKED AT ME. I JUST WAS NOT GOING TO GO AWAY. I MAY BE OLD, I MAY BE SMALL, BUT I WILL NOT BE PUT OFF.

SOMEONE WILL ANSWER ME. OR I WILL NOT BUDGE FROM THIS SPOT.

I GREW UP WITH TOO MAY BOY COUSINS TO CAVE IN TO ONE MAN.

SO I STOOD WAITING.

The Cap’n is now fully awake and is his usual boisterous self.

He is trying to get Angel to make lists of military style Orders of the Day

Breeze’s large cat has just done a great job immobilizing the two unfortunate guards, but it is the Cap’n who realizes that there is no blood or gore on the floor, just exposed shiny metal.

So he has sequestered a large can opener from the kitchen and hacks at the two creatures into small sparkling shards.

My ever industrious broom is just behind him sweeping up these pieces into oblivion.

I muse to myself: “He is all action first before thinking about it!”

I tell my broom to quietly bring back any pieces of their heads that are still recognizable.

My broom is reluctant to do so as its primary task is to remove rubbish, not to bring it back.

But it obeys and I soon have an assortment of metallic bits and pieces of two guards heads on the table in front of me.

They are an intricate mass or wiring. I look at the connections from the eyes to the back of the head and notice a tiny rod protruding that looks exactly the same as one of Grim’s communication devices.

So these two creatures have been transmitting all that has happened here to somewhere and someone.

We are in imminent danger, especially as Breeze has considered her protection duty over and sidled off to her comfortable Hospital room. Therefore no big kitty to help us!

Rubbing my amulet I pass on the gist of my latest thoughts to the Cap’n and Roo, requesting her to come here immediately with all the explosives she is secreting under her voluminous skirts.

We can easily replenish supplies since Breeze has located more.

Time for offensive action at the surface and then the tunnels!

Siting and making a list of things to do , what tunnel to attack first and seeing there are miles and miles of them them connecting them to ever part of MC Land because this being an exact Twin false world of the REAL MC Murk has put us in and yet we have newbies coming in but from where??
I am intrupted by PTG calling me to his table to show me what he found >> I head over to him but am blocked by charieisr and a scowl on her face and hands on hips she looks firmly dug in and not ready to move,,, Ok what is it ?? she is small in stature and older then the rest of us I do believe but I get the impression she will not move untill she gets an answe..
Okay make ths fast in case you did not here me we are in danger and it has to be stoped and if Murk get his evil hands on us THERE WILL BE NO TEA ROOM OR US SO OUT WITH IT.
She then asks about her pets at that I groan she asks can she bring her pets here?
Is there a place for them? Is there food for them. ?
Yes you can have your pets but they have to chiped and checked out by Doc Poppet and your room is big enough for you all, but you have to feed them with there special food anf you know how you get that right oh and you have to clean up if they make a mess so I suggest you get together with the others and plan there daily walks so there needs will be done outside away from The Tea Room === that makes me think I am going to have to build a Stable soon with all these new pets or we will end up with the pets in the hospital wing and us outside NO NO NO that will never do ,, but it would be funny if those stupid gaurds or Nurse Krcachet tryed to inject or give out those pink pills that that would be funny,,, anyway I watch as Charlieisr go off with her bag full of wool,
I sit with PTG and he shows me the heads and what he found aha that gives me an idea on how to block the tunnels till we know what ones ole Murk is useing.
PTG I will need Breeze and Roo I rub my Amulet and call Breeze and Roo Tea Room ASAP,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

CAP, WAS IN NO MOOD FOR EVEN THANK YOU'S. I GUESS THE ELVES WERE NOT SEEN BY HIM.

HOW BIG MUST MY ROOM BE? IF THERE IS ROOM FOR A HORSE, MAMMOTH. AND THE REST OF MY PETS.

THE CATS COME AND GO AS SUITS THEM. BUT THEY STAY IN AT NIGHT. THE DOGS THE SAME. THE GRIFFIN I DO NOT THINK HE WILL LIKE BEING KEPT INDOORS. MAYBE HE CAN FIND A SPOT ON THE ROOF THAT SUITS HIM.

I GUESS I WILL HAVE TO TRY TO TRAIN THE HORSE AND MAMMOTH.

AS LONG AS THERE IS AN OPEN WINDOW MY FLIERS WILL TAKE CARE OF THEIR NEEDS OUTSIDE. I MUST HAVE A TALK WITH EVERYONE WHEN THEY GET HERE AND I HAVE THE AMULET AND THEY THEIR CHIPS.

GUESS I WILL JUST PUT MY YARN DOWN AND WAIT. CAP SAID SOMEONE WOULD SHOW ME TO MY ROOM. ONCE THERE I WILL FIGURE OUT THE SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS. FOR TONIGHT.

BUT I MUST GO BACK TO THAT TAVERN WHERE I ARRIVED.

I MEAN I WAS JUST TAKING A WALK THINKING I NEEDED A REST WITH QUIET. NO TV, VIDEO GAMES, NOISY COMPUTER GAMES. OR LOUD MUSIC.

WHEN I TRIPPED AND STARTED TO FALL. I JUST WENT THROUGH A SMALL TEAR. I THOUGHT THAT FENCE WAS SOLID LIKE THE REST. IT SEEMED TO CLOSE AFTER I CAME THROUGH. BUT I COULD PUT MY ARM BACK THROUGH IT.

HAW! WHAT EVER THAT WAS IT WAS NOT MUSIC. MUSIC YOU CAN HEAR SONG CAN BE UNDERSTOOD. NOT THAT SCREAMING AND BANGING THE BOY CALLS MUSIC.

I WONDER IF THE MAN AT THE TAVERN WHO SENT ME TO THE CASTLE SAYING THEY HAD ROOMS, AND I COULD HAVE ONE FOR AS LONG AS I NEED.

I WILL HAVE TO GO BACK TO MY SON'S HOUSE AT LEAST A COUPLE TIMES A WEEK TO MAKE SURE THE REST OF MY ZOO IS BEING CARED FOR. GLAD I DECIDED NOT TO BRING THEM ALL HERE.

TO MANY OF MY PETS WOULD BE LOOKED ON AS FOOD HERE.

I WONDER IF THAT TEAR IS STILL BEHIND THAT TREE BEHIND THE TAVERN. IT HAD BETTER BE OR I WILL HAVE NO WAY HOME OR FOR MY PETS TO COME HERE. I KNOW IT IS NOT A TUNNEL. SO I WON'T MENTION IT TO CAP OR ANYONE ELSE.

I WILL HAVE TO GO BACK LOAD MY CAR WITH FOOD FOR THE MAMMOTH AND THE HORSE. SEED FOR THE OWL. AND PROBABLY FOOD FOR THE CATS AND DOGS JUST TO BE SURE THEY GET FED. I HAVE A FEELING THE CATS WILL NOT BE EATING KIBBLE MUCH HERE. THERE SEEMS TO BE A LOT OF RATS AND MICE.

I SIT AND I WAIT. I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE MY ROOM IS. HOPE IT IS ON A GROUND FLOOR. KNEES MAY NOT LIKE THE STAIRS MUCH AND GIVE OUT.

I KNIT ON ONE OF THE KNITTED HUG ME JACKETS WHILE I WAIT.

Thank goodness the Cap’n intervened at that moment with the feisty old lady holding knitting needles at the ready.

I was about to tell her where to stick her oversized and overweight pets when he calmed her down and explained about our system for pets and their well-being.

Although if I catch Dandydog’s monkey thieving my carefully selected bananas once more he is a future meal!

I turn back to the Cap’n for a pow-wow.

I see Angel has crept in, presumably assuming that she is unnoticed, and has squatted underneath our table with paper and sharpened pencil at the ready.

She has already given my partner a set of rules and recommendations for any newcomers to our group to take away and to “read-mark-learn-and inwardly digest”!

All we can do now is wait for the reappearance of Roo and Breeze; with the Cap’n drumming his fingers on the table to an ever increasing crescendo.

I mutter: “patience my man”

And get an extra special glare for my suggestion!
