After spending an hour or so helping Falga make up Imps bed and make certain Imps surroundings were in a nice and comfy order for our Patient I received a Message from The Golden Queen to report to Her Master Swords Man for a Practice Demo on How well I was doing with the Dragon Sword........Gulp!....Boy was I so grateful to Captain Randy at this moment for all the time we spent together training.........even if it meant a smack or two once and a while!.........When caught off guard!...."Young Pup, I must let our Captain Randy know how pleased I am with the progress you've demonstrated this afternoon with the Dragon Sword.........Our Captain will be arriving soon, so young Pup I'll give you permission to leave Me now and make yourself presentable for His arrival.." Because one should never turn their back on their Queen, I bowed and walked backward from the throne with the Biggest Grin. (Cause My Captain Randy was coming at last and couldn't help showing it!........) Inside my chest my heart was doing somersaults I was so Happy! Yeaaaahhhh!......
OK! Time to test and see if the Cap’n is correct.
The fact that away from the Tea Room and especially in her zoo enclosures, Charlie’s tuning into my head isn’t so good.
I am a bit restricted on what I can do to her as ‘pay back’ for all her ‘interference’ in my nefarious activities:
But I mustn’t use creepy crawlies, and no mistreatment of any animal life whatsoever.
Then I have to keep out of the way from any ‘fall-back’ from her two overstuffed cats when they realize that their mistress has been ‘discommoded’ by me.
Tricky! But I have the time to hatch a small Cunning Plan and to put it into effect before she returns to the Tea Room.
It just might work!
Phase one: I get a cushion from the HOS Repository and ‘adapt it’ somewhat!
This I replace on her chair seat, and hide her regular cushion.
Phase 2: I wait until she returns and just as she is about to enter:
Phase 3: I begin to hum Beethoven’s famous tune – “Ode to Joy”
„Freude, schöner Götterfunken,
Tochter aus Elysium“
I can’t remember the rest so I continue:
„Pom, pom, pom, pom,
pom, pom, pom, pom“
Even remembering the tune taxes my poor brain blotting out all other thoughts, but I persist.
Charlie goes over to her chair and sits down in it smiling at us all as she takes up her knitting.
She has been gazumped by my improvised whoopee cushion!
The Cap’n’s hint works.
It is rather unfortunate that just at this moment her two feline guardians have expanded dramatically in shape just as Miss Katz is passing by with a tray of scrumptious cakes.
She screams fearing attack and then bursts into fits of laughter when she realizes what has happened and what SHE has just done.
Cake fragments, lashings of cream and fruit cover the heads of both Angel and Roo, Roo!
They had realized what had happened to Charlie and begun to hoot with mirth when Miss Katz fell on top of them!
I give a little sigh of pleasure!
Three for the price of one!
The day just couldn’t get better, or could it?
OLD TRICK BUT ONE I COULD AFFORD TO LET HIM DO. YES, I KNEW SOMEONE HAD CHANGED CUSHIONS BUT NOT WHO. MY CATS MUST HAVE KNOW, BUT SAID NOTHING. SENSE OF SMELL WOULD HAVE TOLD THEM. THEY KNEW IT WAS NOT A THREAT. BUT THE SOUND DID STARTLE THEM. I AM SORRY THEY FRIGHTENED KATT, BUT THE LOSS OF THE CAKES WILL PROBABLY BE GOOD PUNISHMENT FOR HE WHO THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY TO CHANGE THE CUSHION. THE LAUGH WILL BE ON HIM IF KATT FIGURES OUT HE DID IT. HE SEEMS TO ALSO FORGET I GREW UP WITH A WILD PACK OF BOY COUSINS. I WONDER, ARE THEIR ANY SMALL FRUIT TREES HERE. GUESS I WILL HAVE TO HAVE A LOOK AROUND OR AS A FEW OF THE LOCALS. MY OWN PLAN STARTS TO TAKE SHAPE.
I take a break when Rosie comes in to check on Imp and brings me a hot tea.
Rosie asks how things are going and what do I think the out come will be.
I turn to her and say in my heart I want Imp to come back to us and take her rightful place I know it will happen but it is ll up to her,,,
All I can do is stand her helpless ,,, **** Hold on there Randy you are not helpless,, I am sure Imp can feel and hear you and is fighting to come back from the the depths of hell she is in right now and I know and feel she ha connected with your Pup,, I can see small changes in Imp so stop thinking those things she will pick them up.
BUCK UP MAN Imp and all of us need you .
WHOA that was a wake up Rosie never calls me Randy ,,, but she is right.
AS YOU WHERE SOLDIER and whisper thank Rosie gal I got it.
I sit outside and drink my tea and take my Amulet,,
Things have been TO QUITE over in The Tea Room and that makes me more nervous then a pimple on an Ogress Butt
CHARLIE,,,, PTG,,,,,,, ROO ROO,,,,,, ANGEL,,,,,ANY ONE WHAT IS GOING ON OVER THERE????
I sit and wait for an answer.....
I smile as the message comes through!
In my best voice I smartly reply
"All present and correct and in the confines of the Tea Room area so you have NO NEED to concern yourself!"
"I have no Cunning Plan at the moment and the others are catching up with simple chores
!I will admit though that I cannot locate Roo Roo at the moment as I lack the wherewithal that is legitimate to do so!"
I sign off before I get the expletive ridden reply!
I'm still here Captain Randy but it feels kinda lonely without everyone else with us......Hummmmm maybe everyone is out gathering supplies for out next "Big Adventure?" Sure hope so........
ALL IS QUIET AS PTG HAS SAID. I HAVE TALKED TO THE GNOMES AND THEY HAVE AGREED TO ADD ON TO THE BARN AND ENCLOSURE AS YOU ASKED THEY JUST NEED THE GO AHEAD. AS USUAL THEY DO NOT COME CHEAP BUT MY GUYS SAY IF THE BUILDERS TO MOST OF THE MAIN BUILDING THEY CAN DO THE FINISHING OF IT. SO THAT WILL COST YOU LESS. ANGEL IS ABOUT SOMEWHERE SCRIBBLING FOR THE PAPER. THE KITCHEN IS AS USUAL. SMELLS GOOD.
NOT SURE WHERE ROO IS, THE ZOO IS FINE. TODAY WAS BATH DAY SO AT LEAST THEY ARE NOW ALL CLEAN. DOOGIE MISSES YOU. TOLD HIM YOU HAD TO GO DO A VERY IMPORTANT JOB AND WOULD COME BACK AS SOON AS YOU COULD.
HE IS SO GOOD, CAN'T BELIEVE THE FAT LITTLE GUY IS THE SAME GUY YOU BROUGHT HOME.
THAT IS BASICALLY ALL THAT IS GOING ON. WAY TO QUIET HERE. BUT I AM SURE THAT TOO WILL CHANGE.
Mrs Fletcher is still bustling around the Tea Room keeping Herself as busy as ever making certain that there is enough of Your Honey Rum in stock and PTG' special Tea's will be waiting for your return........Salty keeps an eye on Her Captain Randy making sure that She isn't over doing it........
I take a huge breath and let it out.
I listen to all reports and am amazed all are being good little campers but no ROO ROO now that is worrisome.
PTG keep up the good work.... Mrs Fletcher listen to Salty would not want my favorite gal getting worn out.
Angel keep the news light and bright
Charlie you doll give my Doogie a big hug and kiss for me and say I will be home soon and I miss him to as I do you all.
Now for the Gnomes they have a big job ahead of them not only expanding the barn and en-closer but they will be building new digs on Jacobs land I will explain it all on my return.
I am drawing up blueprints now for them and not to worry about the cost *** I HAVE A CUNNING PLAN****
Cap out see you all soon.
Salty here and it's a big...."Aye, aye Captain Randy........I'll be doing my level best to keep that "Bustling Bunch of Energy" we know as "Mrs Fletcher from doing too darn much! Think I'll haul Her along with me on the Flying Boat to pay a little visit too the Farm's Honey Hives ta see how their com'un along.....Yup! That's what I'll go ahead and do all righty...Be seeing you soon Captain Randy with the rest of our Special Room Gang cus I know how we've been missing everyone...."Mrs Fletcher...Ain't you done packing yet?'........"Now Salty dear......Don't you be a rushing me now because I want to bring with us some Goodies for Pup and the rest of those sweeties on Captain Randy's Farm OK Salty....."Grumble..Grumble.." "Darn Female's going to make us miss the Boat....!" "No I am not Salty......all packed and ready so lets Scoot!"
