I gave up on trying to sleep to many things going through my head,, to many questions not nearly enough answers.
I go over to my table I use as a desk grab the tea pot and craponacracker cold as ice.
Oh well I get dressed and go over to the Tea Room where I know Opel always has hot water for any one that needs coffee or tea in times they can not sleep.
I see a piping hot cup of Tea siting on my table with the pot full and hot water and sugar and cream on a saucer
Opel amazes me how does she know?
The light from the fireplace is not as bright as I need ,, oh wait that gives me an idea,,, I go outside and wait.
Here they come I wonder if I can grab on with my hands and not get it ripped off?
I wait for a Silver Globe to float by and hold my hands out to cup it,,, don;t know exactly what these things are or what they are made of but here goes.
It settles in my hands wow this is cool,, not to bright not hot at all and the spinning has slowed down hummmmm that gives me another idea.
I could get the boys to make some holders of some kind with the help of the Black smith and they can be used as markers like street lights there are hundreds flying around all over the place like those.. Pigs... cookies.... dwarfs.... elves... baby reindeer....trees.. socks... but I know we do not have many more days left before they disappear so I will try one out tomorrow with my boys... Gold and Silver at the cottages and the farms and the Bronze that is more red hum now they could GOT IT ,, used as markers for DANGER AREAS this just might work out.
I take my spinning globe inside and sit and look at it ,, okay what now oh smart one?
Whatcha goin do sit here all night and hold it while you write??
AHA got it as I spy an old bird cage,,, I slip the globe inside and WALA I gots me self a forever light.
I wonder how long it will stay bright?? will it regenerate in the sun?
Shheesh more questions but I will find out later.
I go over to the desk by the window and open the drawer and pull out a pile of papers,, I reach in my pocket and bring out my note book that I have been writing notes in since I got here.
This is book number 6 .
I pour my tea and dig into the pile of papers.
I place them all in order by date and events.
I then realize I am da Cap of idjiots yep I need my other note books that are hidden away note books 1 through 5
I hurry back to my cottage with my bird cage light == lighting my way ... wow this is perfect I can see clearly.
I get to my hiding space and remove the note books,,, you know I say to me self I should tell one of my crew where these are just in case == you never know.
I know just the person,,, level headed ,, dependable...knows the value of the written word,,,, yep our one and only super duper reporter Angel.
I grab a large ledger and head back to the Tea Room.
I open the ledger and not book one and start to read and make notes.
That is the last thing I remember as I fall asleep zzzzzzzzzzz
Opel wakes me up with a gentile tug and a fresh cup of tea.
Wake up sleepy head the gang will be here soon and breakfast almost ready.
Huh oh ouchie I slept wrong ,, where am I ? oh yeah I jump up almost knocking the paper laden table flying.
Hurry Opel the gang can not see this yet here can you hide these in a huge roasting pan that only you use?
6 am ok time to grab a quick shower and shave and get back here before the gang arrives.
I slip out the back door giving Miss Katt and Opel a peck on the cheeks brb.
I hit the head then shower and shave and grab fresh cloths and my watch mans hat ,,, be glad when my hair grows back.
I take a deep breath and walk back to the Tea Room looking all busy tailed and relaxed ( if they only knew what a mess I really was **
I stop by and say good morning to the critters and give Doogie and big hug and a fresh apple,, I feel a snake like thing wrap around my leg and I say well good morning Cherry hows my girl?
She trumps as I give her a juicy apple to.
Hey there my gorgeous girl how is my Blossom this AM?
I get her trunk draped around my neck and a snot kiss.
Stump is still sleeping just like a teenager loves his sleep.. and just catch Fang heading out to join Smoke and family on there morning hunt.
Do not see Charlie she must be with the cats feeding them.
I enter the Tea Room and sit at my table and wait for the others,
Minutes slowly march by as I steadfastly hold My crouching position in the shadows of Granny Fletcher's Chair waiting for Angel to make Her next move....Hummmm..........When nothing happens....sigh....My Mind Connection with Captain Randy starts to "Tingle" letting Me know that I better "High Tail it" back to the Tea Room pronto like cause something must be "Afoot" once more.....
Just as I was ready to pounce on Pup, I see her head over to Cap's table. Oh yeah, the all hands on deck meeting!! So, I come out from my hiding spot and also head over to the table. Miss Katt and Opel start bringing out a huge breakfast....all my favorites! Scrambled eggs cooked just right, crispy bacon and perfectly browned sausages, fried potatoes with onions and peppers, and toast with butter and homemade jam! And, there's nothing better than freshly brewed coffee. Now that's the perfect start to good day!
Mornin' Cap.....let's eat!
As everyone tucks in, I wander over to the table with more coffee and tea.
Captain Randy, Opel and I found this last night and we thought you would be the best person to hold onto it, or give it to someone for safekeeping. I was tucked into one of our cookbooks like someone was trying to hide it...
I hand him the "recipe":
Recipe for the Erasure of Unwanted Tunnels: Use the Star of Renovation to combine the Idol for Rock Master and Lord of Water. Fuel the combo with Nature Force. When ready, use it to edit the Underground Manifest. Once all is prepared, create The Roc and have it deliver the edited manifest to the tunnel for erasure.
I HEARD THE CAP COME INTO THE BARN, I KNOW HE WAS IN THE TEA ROOM WHEN I CAME THROUGH THE KITCHEN TO GET MY BOOTS AND HEAD FOR THE BARN. BUT THAT IS HIS BUSINESS. I FINISH FEEDING THE CATS, THEN THE DOGS. AS I COME TO THE CENTER OF THE BARN WHERE BABY AND BEAU ARE I NOTICE HE HAS LEFT. BETTER HURRY OR I WILL BE LATE. I QUICKLY FEED AND WATER THEM AND GIVE THEM TREATS, THEN CHECK DOOGIE AND GOLDIE. THEY NEED WATER AND HAY, NOW FOR CHERRY, BLOSSOM AND THE REST OF CAPS PETS. ALL BUT THE MEAT EATERS. THEY HUNT. MAN BLOSSOM AND CHERRY CAN PUT AWAY THE HAY, GIVE THEM FRESH WATER. MAN THIS PLACE NEEDS CLEANED. AS I WAS GATHERING UP MY BAG AND PREPARING TO LEAVE DINKY AND SMIDGE WERE COMING IN. IF YOU BOYS HAVE NOT EATEN GO TO THE TEA ROOM. YOU WILL BE VERY BUSY TODAY, EVERYTHING IN THE BARN NEEDS TO BE CLEANED. AND MAKE SURE YOU HAUL IT BUT THE LITTER BOXES OUT TO THE BUNKERS TO COMPOST IT. THE FARMERS WILL BE COMING FOR IT IN THE SPRING.
I THEN CONTINUE TO THE TEA ROOM. LEAVE MY BOOTS OUTSIDE. SLIP INTO WARM SLIPPERS AND HEAD INTO BREAKFAST. SEEMS LIKE MOST EVERYONE WAS HERE. I HEAR OPAL TELL MY BOYS TO LEAVE THEIR BOOT OUTSIDE. THEY COME IN GRUMBLING ABOUT IT. I NOTICE THEY HAVE HOLES IN THEIR SOCKS.
OPEN MY BAG TAKE OUT MY NEEDLES AND THE DREADED GREEN YARN. AND TELL THE NEEDLES TO MAKE THEM NEW SOCKS.
NOW FOR BREAKFAST.
As Angel and Pup enter the Tea Room together they find Captain Randy patiently waiting for His "Special Room Group" and others to gather round Him. "Hummm.....Angel...I think we had better give Opal our Breakfast Orders first cause by the expression on Captain Randy's face, if we don't....... I have a strong feeling we won't be eating before Lunchtime." "And boy am I starving for a plate full of Opal's eggs and bacon with a side order of Her fluffy Pancakes!" Yum, Yum, Yum!!! "Hey Angel, has the Captain suggested any certain "Special Weapons" for your.... certain "Combat Talents" like He did My Dragon Sword?" "Ya gotta know Angel, He's really a Whiz when it comes to anything dealing in those types of things.....right?"
Has He moved yet Angel? "Nope, not even a muscle twitch." (More minutes March by dear Friends as Our Captain Randy sits in His Favorite Chair at His most Favorite Tea Room Table.) Hummmm! It's been more then an hour now Angel and my butt's becoming numb from all this sitting around, Sigh! I know what to do Angel, lets leave a message with Opel letting Captain Randy we were here for the longest time but needed to go...."No, no Opal we wont be going out of the Tea Room completely!" "Captain Randy would have our Hides if we did that!" Angel and I will be right next door practicing some of Our best "Super Duper" moves cause we gotta be ready for Captain Randy's next orders of action! Sides Angel, I'd like to show you how to defend yourself when practicing with our Illustrate Captain OK?
Sure, Pup! That sounds good to me. It's boring just sitting and waiting for Cap to get this meeting started. Anyway, now that my muscles are no longer sore from all the training, I'm ready to learn more! Tee-hee
My butt is numb and my head and neck are throbbing.
I shake the cobwebs and a few hundred dust bunnies out of my head.
I am more worn out the I thought but that cat nap helped a bit.
I look at the table now where was I ??
I look at my watch holy craponacracker it is way past the meeting time and I am alone??
@#$%^&*()_)(*&^% okay wait I can not be to mad if everyone showed up and saw me passed out I am sure they woulld not try to wake me knowing I would more then likely snap for waking me up.
I hear screams ,, moans ,, groans AHA's take that ,,, from the room next door??
What the hell is going on?
I open the door and see Angel and Pup ducking it out,,,, both are out of breath and sweating like crazy.
Okay you two knock it off and get back to the table and not a word about me falling asleep before the meeting.
I rub my Amulet and call everyone back ASAP
Opel comes in with a cold drink for Pup and Angel and towels and Tea for me.
Okay now that everyone is here ,,, I explain about the glowing globes and send my boys to meet with Charlies boys and have written instructions on what I want done,,, Gold for the cottages silver for the farms and red for any danger areas we find.
The red globes are to be stored in an area that will contain them and be in direct sun light.
Now I have been up all night going over notes and it came to me that when we arrived here and our protective dome was erected and blessed by the Elvin leaders ,, this did not include The Bone Kingdom nor the Northern Osland and now it makes sense what PTG was saying he saw and what nfo I am gettng about the tunnels.
This is where they plan to attack us.
Now Miss Katt has given me a Recipe for the Erasure of Unwanted Tunnels: I can not make head nor tails of it but I know who can and it will take the head mole and Charlies head gnome.
Charlie can you arrange that and I will go to the Moles and set up a meeting and give them the recipe
Now on to PTG you are going to go on a very important recon,
Take Ghost pup and I will send Brulee to scout over head for you.
I need to know how many Ogres there are how many troops they have and most of all if you see The White Ogre,
Angel came up with a fantastic idea for the pig carcass ,,, the boys have dug a huge pit and Frost and Snow are keeping then frozen.
Angels idea is for us to build catapolets big enough to hold a pig we the pour a small amount of fuel on them and send them flying at any invaders instant BBQ of Pig and Ogre YUCKKKKKKKKKKK
Roo Roo is working on her potions and not to be disturbed Jen well I have an idea she is showing off her new outfits and looking for things to blow up.
Okay we all clear on what we are to do time is ticking so lets get to it.
Angel a word over here,,,,, go see Opel she will give you a big roasting pan in it is my note books 1 to 5 on every thing I have done and what has gone on here since I got here.
I am trusting you with my and our lives with those note books.
Hide them well and tell no one understand.
I will ask you only if I need them I do not want to know where you hide them okay?
Go now and Pup and I will wait outside and we can start on the pig launchers lol
