I was just putting the finishing touches on my latest story when I hear Charlie in my amulet. She wants me to take the new children on a tour of her zoo. Well, since I also love all the animals so much, it's an easy chore I'm happy to accept!
I head outside and greet the new arrivals. Charlie and Penny are taking the adults them to where their tents will be set up so I gather all the children together and take them to the enclosure to meet all the different animals. I think they are really enjoying themselves and, after meeting Frost and Snow, they didn't even bat an eye when I introduced them to Baby and Beau. LOL They just took it in stride that we have all types of pets here. They were very gentle with Doogie, feeding him treats and rubbing his nose. The little girl with the kitten finally relaxed and decided her little one would be quite happy in the enclosure. But, of course she wanted to be reassured she could come visit whenever she could. I said, but, of course, little one!
After the tour, I could see the children were getting hungry so I let Miss Katt and Mrs. Fletcher know via amulet that we were on our way to the Tea Room now. Cap had already let them know to expect a number of newbies and to be ready to feed an Army! Hahahahaha.....
My Word Mrs Fletcher! Why in the world are you scurrying around the Tea Room like a Kitty Cat trying to keep it's tail safe in a room filled with rocking Chairs??? Oh! There you are Salty......Please dear make yourself useful and bring by the Tea Room a few kegs full of your very best Honey Rum OK?........I guess I could be doing that very thing if'un you'ed let me know why and for whom Mrs Fletcher you'ed be needing the Rum for........Well now Salty...All I know is that a large group under Captain Randy's protection will be arriving soon so, Miss Katt and I will be doing our very best to make certain everyone is well fed and happy too....Boy does that every make this Old Gal Happier then a Froggy on a lily pad having a large group in the Tea Room once more.......Charlie will be taking care of the groups critters which I know will make Her extremely happy.......But Mrs Fletcher, what can I be doing besides providing the Beverages? Hummmm.......I don't know Salty...Perhaps Captain Randy will assign you something when He arrives....In the meanwhile Scoot because I need to bustle my behind and finish making the food and what not's for everyone thats coming....
WITH THE CHILDREN OUT OF THE WAY PENNY AND I STARTED SETTING UP TENTS. SHOWING THE NEW COMERS HOW IT WAS DONE. THEN WE JUST SUPERVISED AND HELPED WHEN NEEDED. IT WENT QUITE WELL, SOON THEY WERE FINISHED NOT TO MILITARY STANDARDS BUT THEY WERE UP AND STURDY. SO PENNY AND I TOOK THE ADULTS TO THE TEA ROOM FOR SOMETHING TO EAT AND DRINK.
I THANKED PENNY FOR HER HELP, AND SAT IN MY CHAIR LOOKING AT THE GROUP, SOME OF THEM WOULD NEED WARMER CLOTHES AND SOME WERE RATHER THREAD BARE. I TOOK OUT THE NEEDLES FROM THE MAGE AND SOME OF THE BALLS OF YARN FROM THE STOCKING FROM CHRISTMAS. AND ORDERED THE NEEDLES TO MAKE SHAWLS FOR THE WOMEN THEN I WOULD ADDRESS THE OTHERS. SOON THE NEEDLES WERE FLYING. RED SHAWLS, GREEN SHAWLS AND WHITE. I FIGURED IT WOULD NOT TAKE THE LONG TO HAVE AT LEAST THE WOMEN WARM. THE MEN AND CHILDREN I WOULD ADDRESS LATER.
THEN I BEGAN TO WANDER IF SOME OF THE OLDER CHILDREN WOULD LIKE TO HELP FEED AND CARE FOR MY ZOO WITH MY GNOMES AT JACOB'S I HAD BEEN DOING IT ALL. THE FEEDING THE WATERING AND THE MUCKING OUT. COULD USE A LITTLE HELP. OLD BODIES GET TIRED QUICK, AND I AM JUST ABOUT DONE IN. BUT NO MATTER HOW TIRED I AM THE ANIMALS COME FIRST EVEN IF IT TAKES ALL DAY TO DO THE CHORES. I CAN REST WHEN THEY ARE CARED FOR.
Sorry guys I have done my best to get into the special room, and with all that is going on, as you can see I haven't made it back to join in my fellow special friends. I had surgery again on the arteries in both legs and 3stents put in 2 on the right, 1 on the left. This seems to be the last of the surgeries and malfunctions, and I am doing fine and back o wrk, and riding. It's just that it be awhile before I get everything back to level (normal ha!). Please don't give up on me get but these are reasons for not being here yet, Thanks Mike amigos!
Angel to Cap--Are you there? I rub my amulet again, and repeat.....Angel to Cap--Are you there? Yes, I hear you Angel. What's going on? You know I'm in the middle of my mission here so, come on, spit it out!! Well, Cap, I just heard from Jacob that his twin brother Riddler hasn't been helping in the fields getting the crops going again, lately. He actually has been with Doc Deadman, having some more surgeries! But, he says he's ok now and hopes to be back to normal real soon because he feels like he's letting everyone down. Of course, Jacob told him his health comes first and we'll all be here to welcome him back to the farm when Doc Deadman says he's ready. I just thought you'd want to know.
Thanks, Angel...you were right to contact me. Once he's back at Jacob's and feeling right as rain, we'll have a little welcome home party for him to cheer him up. Now I've got to go, but I'll be back before you know it...Cap out!
Wait Angel thanks for the update but please please before I go back to the Queen NO INTERRUPTIONS unless life of death okay.
Sure we can have a party for Riddle but nor before I chew him out for not giving a heads up and do not worry he wil nopt be alone in the falling out DEADMAN will share that glory.
When I get back I am calling a meeting and you all are going to get deep instructions on HOW to use the Amulets and I have the person do do the job .
Call it school for no I will not say what I was going to because the Amulets can be befuddling until you get to know how to use them so I will get Penny to instruct you all a few hours a day until it is burned into your heads lol
Okay I am off to meet with The Queen
So Valeria claims that she 'wishes she had my troubles." REALLY LADY?
YOU WANNA BE EXPERIMENTED ON THREE TIMES?
YOU WANNA BE SO TRAUMATIZED BY A CULT THAT A POSITIVE WORD MAKES YOU GO INTO A PANIC ATTACK?
YOU WANNA SEE YOUR FIANCE GET REDUCED TO A SEMI-SPIRIT BY PURGEBOTS?
YOU WANNA GET INFECTED WITH TWO NASTY GENES?
YOU WANT PEOPLE TRYING TO USE YOU AS A WEAPON OF WAR?
YEAH...DIDN'T THINK SO! ALSO...BRING BACK THE PUMPKINS I WASN'T DONE COLLECTING THEM!
Squawk!...squawk...Squawk!......Yes Little Raven I can hear you loud and clear sitting as you are right on my right shoulder close to My ear. And yes, I do truly love that Saltly brought you with Him on the Flying boat....Squawk, squawk!...I like riding in the Flying boat too Little Raven. Gently I place My Hand on Little Ravens small beak...Hush now Little Raven cause Pup wants to spent a wee bit of time in total silence OK? squawk..squawk...I now know dear Friends why Salty brought Little Raven to me on Jacobs Farm.......Guess I'm gonna have to ask Charlie for a few tips about taking care of Little Raven and how to have Him lean to speak softly and not "Squawk" so much...As I reach the top of the hill over looking Jacob's Farm I see Granny Fletcher searching through the Farm's Herb Garden for just the right plant that will help Mr Jacob feel a little better. Over by the Barn I can also see Jacobs brood of Children playing and taking care of all the Critter's sent over by Friend Charlie via Our ever Faithful Flying Boat. I spy Salty over there with a few of the Older Children harvesting the honey from a few of the many producing Hives. I wonder why I feel so melancholy and a wee bit sad........Wish that everyone could send us some sign that their still here in the Castle Realms safe and sound and Fit as a Fiddle.......Sigh....Oh Boy, oh boy...I really believe that Mother Piggy does not like that small toddler try to capture one of Her Brood! Squawk!..Squawk! Hang on there Little Raven!...And it's down the Hill Pup runs.....
I slip back into the Tea Room on my first venture from my own hospital cot for the last five days.
I have been feeling wretched from some bug that I am sure is alien but cannot source its origin.
As I sit in the corner chair, Miss Katzz takes one look at me and flies back into the Kitchen.
She reappears with Mrs Fletcher who takes one look at me, and mutters to her partner
“Look at him! He is merely a bag of bones. He needs good old-fashioned nourishment to ease his sickness and put some flesh back on him
“Come back into the kitchen and I’ll tell you what to do”
The both disappear back into the Kitchen, leaving me feeling rather sorry for myself.
Matters go downhill from here on!
My head is blasted by “Squawk, squawk” from some bird that seems to have taken residence somewhere in the room.
“Squawk, squawk, squawk”
I turn round but fail to see it.
I peer up into the rafters where my pets are:
“Toot, Toot” which I now recognize as being owl speak for: “it’s nothing to do with me”!
There higher up on a beam is my Raven and I think to it
“That sounds suspiciously like you when you are ‘serenading’ your friends!
“If it is the stop doing it NOW – OR ELSE!”
No reply and again “Squawk, squawk!”
Enough is enough!
I call to my broom: “I don’t care if it is a new acquisition to the BIG C. menagerie or not, just sweep it out of this Room and I don’t care if a few feathers get ruffled or not!”
My broom is just about to go into attack mode when I get the most piercing shriek from Charlie accompanied by croaks and other booming noises from my Raven.
“You mustn’t disturb it or we will have the Developers come and sweep YOU away. It is the new pet from the 5th Anniversary game and is being very helpful to our worthy citizens
“Here, I’ve knitted you a pair of earmuffs which will dull the squawking so put them on and keep quiet
“Do NOT do anything more or you’d better leave the room”
So, I am to be banished from my own place of rest.
Back to my hospital bed.
Puff, Puff , Puff... Oh you poor dear knuckle Head PTG......Puff, Puff, Puff...(Just trying to catch my "Breath" here cause I am getting too darn Old for all this running back and forth between My dear Patients!...) Now don't you worry none because as soon as we can get in touch with Dr Deadman with all of His Metrical Cure All's You will be back to your Ol' Salf in no time at all....Oh! Why here is Miss katt now with the Castor Oil and a spot of you favorite Tea to wash it down with........
