There ya go again Pup...squeezing Mrs Fletcher way too tightly for Her ta breath proper like......Sorry again Granny but did you say that Captain Randy may be coming soon to Jacob's Farm? That I did Pup...That I did say....Oh dear Salty...there She goes doing a "Happy Dance" and "Cart Wheelies" all the way up the path way leading to Jacob's front door...."Well now Mrs Fletcher....Do you you remember how on Captain Randy's Old Putt Putt Dandydog would just loved to make a very Loud and Noisy entrance right in front of My fine Establishment?" "Oh My word Salty......Think we should warn Captain Randy....Nope I don't Mrs Fletcher cause He knows how to handle that Pup just fine......"Now what's that you were saying about fixing those treats ya brought?" Oh your always hungry Salty just like Our dear Ol' Codger Friend Captain Randy......
I laugh a huge belly laugh hearing all that is going on between Salty and Mrs Fletcher
Salty that ole sea dog never did get the hang of the Amulet and forgets it is around his neck half the time now that is not a bad thing unless he is in his bar and it is full of rowdy drunks lol then it is a bit brain clanging ,, but at times like this it comes in handy .
I tuck my Amulet under my shirt to muffle it and turn it ti vibrate.
I really miss them at the Tea Room but I do have my duties here .
I hear Rosie call me and I go running to see what she is all upset over.
GOOD LORD THAT MAN SURE DID SPRING A BIGGER PLAN ON ME. NOW I HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO. GRIFF! ON STANDBY PLEASE I MAY HAVE SOME NEW INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOU. IS THE AREA STILL QUIET?
%^&*()_+_)(*&^%$#@#$%^&() I sent Charlie a message via the Amulet but seems it got lost in cyber space,
Lets try again I rub my Amulet front and back just in case any dirt got on it.
Charlie can you hear me ?? duh I dial Charlie,,, Charlie are you reading me ???
Yes man stop screaming will you I am NOT deaf.
Okay listen up cancel Griff please I came to an agreement with Samuel and his group they will not take * as he said * such a huge gift from us nor let the worker Gnomes do all the work so * to make every one happy and hurt no ones pride I am sending Frost and Snow to you with the new group just show them where to pitch there temporary logging's (the tents) and please introduce them to our group there and the critters and show them the facilities and The Tea Room.
I will let Mrs. Fletcher and Miss Katt to prepare for our new friends.
Cap out see you soon.
BLOODY L. THAT MAN, I MAY BE OLD BUT HEAR QUITE WELL. I GO OUTSIDE, HUMMMM!!!! I DON'T WANT THE MINI CAMP UNDERFOOT SO I THINK I SHALL PUT THEM ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE FROM THE BARN. AND THEY MAY BE OUT OF LINE OF SIGHT OF THE CASTLE. THOSE NOSY BODIES NEED NOT KNOW WE HAVE NEW ARRIVALS. OR THEY WOULD DESCEND ON US WITH SOME NEW TRUMPED UP TAX.
I HAD JUST FIGURED OUT WHERE WHEN FROST AND SNOW LANDED. THE FOLKS SCRAMBLED OUT ONTO FIRM GROUND, SOME A LITTLE GRAY WITH FRIGHT. THE CHILDREN ON THE OTHER HAND LOOKED LIKE THEY THOUGHT IT WAS GRAND FUN TO BE CARRIED HIGH THEN POPPED TO A NEW LOCATION. I THINK THEY MIGHT OF WANTED IT TO LAST LONGER.
IT WAS A GOOD THING THAT THE CAP HAD SENT SOME ARMY TENTS FROM THE CAMP. AND OF COURSE NONE OF THESE PEOPLE HAD ANY IDEA HOW TO SET THEM UP. I USED MY AMULET TO CALL PENNY, COULD YOU PLEASE JOIN ME ON THE FAR SIDE OF THE TEA ROOM TO SET UP THE TENTS FOR THE NEW ARRIVALS. THEY HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO. I CAN'T DO THEM ALL ALONE. MAYBE IF WE SHOW THEM HOW AND CHECK THEIR WORK IT WILL ALL COME RIGHT.
A MAN INTRODUCES HIMSELF AS SAMUEL, HE SEEMS A BIT UNSURE IF HE SHOULD COME AND GREET ME, THE OTHER ARE IN A GROUP ABOUT 10 FEET AWAY HE IS SORT OF THE LEADER OF THIS GROUP. HE HANDS ME SOME PAPERS AND SAID THEY ARE FROM THE CAP. THEY SEEM TO INDICATE WHERE THE NEW FARM STEADS WILL BE.
I LOOK UP AT HIM YOU ARE NOT AFRAID OF DRAGONS, PLEASE DO NOT FEAR THE CATS AT MY SIDES. THEY ARE PROTECTORS, WE HAVE OTHER LARGE PROTECTORS. MOST ARE VERY FRIENDLY TO THOSE WE PROTECT. NOW I MUST SEND THESE PLANS TO THE GNOMES AT WORK ON THE LAND YOU ARE TO MOVE ON TO.
ANY ANIMALS NO MATTER HOW SMALL ARE WELCOME HERE. BUT THEY MUST LIVE IN THE ENCLOSURE FOR NOW. I LOOKED AT A SMALL GIRL WHO WAS TRYING TO HIDE A SMALL KITTEN.
I WILL TAKE YOU ALL TO THE TEA ROOM AS SOON AS WE HAVE PLACES FOR YOU TO LIVE.
THEN I HAVE A THOUGHT, AND USE MY AMULET TO CALL ANGEL. COULD YOU PLEASE COME TO THE FAR SIDE OF THE TEA ROOM AND TAKE THE CHILDREN TO THE ENCLOSURE AND BARN. I THINK THEY WOULD ENJOY SEEING MY ZOO. BUT NO HITTING OR TAIL PULLING. THEY MUST TREAT THE ANIMALS KINDLY. ESPECIALLY DOOGIE.
I RUB MY AMULET AND TELL THE CAP THAT OUR GUESTS HAVE ARRIVED, AND THANK HIM FOR SENDING THE TENTS.
ALSO IF YOU FIND ANY OF THEIR STOCK, I HAVE SOME ROOM IN THE ENCLOSURE AND BARN. BUT THE UPGRADES WILL HAVE TO WAIT TILL THE FARMSTEADS ARE BUILT.
THEN TURN TO PENNY, SHALL WE GET STARTED.
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!
