Ok, calm down Pup. I think I know where PTG might be. I send Pup off to let Miss Opel and Miss Katt know we're hungry and looking for a good meal, then I slip through the aperture and, as I suspected, there is PTG, seated in front of Grim's computer monitor. "What are you doing"? PTG says he's trying to research Grim's files to see if he can find anything that would explain what's been happening to him.
Just then I hear a loud bang and Cap's booming voice.....it does travel far when he's that upset! PTG and I see the look on Cap's face from the monitor after we switched it to the Tea Room view as soon as we heard all the commotion. C'mon PTG, we need to get to the Tea Room STAT!
Okay, Cap, I'm here and I have PTG with me! Just then, Miss Opel and Miss Katt, also hearing all the commotion, brought out a big tureen of soup, with lots of bread and butter for everyone. They hoped everyone would eat first so it would give Cap time to calm down a bit, seeing as Angel found PTG and brought him with her.........
I OPEN MY AMULET TO CAP, HOLD YOUR BRITCHES CAP, I'LL BE THERE IN A FEW, HAVE TO CALL IN NOSE, AND SNOOP. THEY ARE OUT CHECKING TO SEE IF WE HAVE INTRUDERS. SUGAR IS HUNTING, WILL BE THERE SOON AS I CAN.
SUGAR RETURNED AND PROCEEDED TO CLEAN HERSELF. I ASKED IF THE HUNT WAS GOOD, YES, SHE REPLIED,
I THEN TOLD HER WE WERE COMMANDED TO COME TO THE TEA ROOM. SHE STOOD STRETCHED AND SAID OK!
NOSE AND GHOST PUP CAME IN AND REPORTED ALL WAS QUIET, TOO QUIET GHOST PUP CHIMED IN. THEN WE HAD BETTER GET TO THE TEA ROOM.
DRINK FIRST THEY BOTH REPLIED, FINE BUT HURRY, I AM SURE OPAL AND KATT WILL HAVE SOMETHING FOR YOU TO EAT. AT THE MENTION OF FOOD HONEY FIRE WOKE AND SKRILLED HER HUNGER. YOU TO I REPLIED.
SHE SETTLED A LITTLE AND AS SOON AS THE BOY'S RETURNED I GATHERED MY BAG AND WE WENT TO THE TEA ROOM.
INTERRING FROM THE KITCHEN I STOPPED AT MY CHAIR IN THE CORNER AND LEFT THE BOWL OF RAW MEAT FOR HONEY AND AND WENT TO CAP.
WE ARE HERE, I BROUGHT NOSE, AND GHOST PUP. AND IF YOU NEED BACKUP SPICE IS WILLING TO GO WITH YOU OR ARE YOU TAKING THE DIRE'S. THEN SEEING THAT HE WAS WELL INTO HIS FOOD RETURNED TO MY CHAIR TO WAIT ON THE CAP TO FINISH AND FEED HONEY SHE WAS NO LONGER A HATCHLING BUT STILL ATE LIKE ONE THE GREEDY LITTLE THING.
Ready to pull my hair out strand by strand then exp[ode .
I was wearing a hole in the floor oacing back and forth when I hear okay Cap calm down I found our wondering door knob as you call him.
I turn around and glare if looks could kill PTG would be worm meat,
I took a deep breath to calm down if not DO DO would really hit the fan.
Okay Mister know it all soon to be striped of your badge and title of my number two speak up and it better be good.
Angel jumped in come on Cap look at him he is not himself and I found him in Grim's old control room staring at the monitors and brought him right here.
Well that saved his butt FOR NOW good thing you found him I really did not want to send Charlies trackers out and take them away from there patrols and as I heard Nose and Ghost Pup tell Charlie all looks good but it is to quite and that is something to worry about .
Angel sit on PTG if you have to and DO NOT let him move a muscle ,, Angel looks at me like I lost all me dust bunnies and they took my grey natter with them.
UM Cap I am NOT even 100 pounds soaking wet and next to PTG at 6ft 1 and lord knows how many pounds eating all that cake I am to DO WHAT oh I know go flying on my rump if he gets up yep sure thing Cap right away I am on it and snarls at me.
I go to Charlie thanks for getting here so fast with the gang but as you see we found him so you eat and feed your gang and get Nose to smell PTG and get him to tell you if PTG wandered further than the control room then get some sleep but have your night trackers on high alert.
I return to PTG and Angel and no she is not sitting on his lap but talking softly to him... he seems very relaxed and soothed by her voice *** the wonders women can do to a guy *****
Angel lets get him to his room he has to drink this all,,
PTG follows Angel like a lill puppy and right into his room,,, she gets him to sit on his bed then says here PTG drink this all for me it will help calm you
She holds the cup and he downs it all *** wow that was easy***
PTG is about to fall face first on the floor but I grab his shoulders and Angels grabs his feet and OVERRRRR he goes out like a light.
I explain every thing to Angel and say we need not worry about him now and I will have the boys take turns 24/7 to make sure he is safe.
Lets go eat now and I will tell you what is next I do not have a good feeling .
JUST LIKE A MAN, HOLLERING BEFORE HE IS HURT. I LOOK AND NOSE ENJOYING HIS MEATY BONE, AND GHOST PUP TRYING VERY HARD TO JUST SMELL IT. POOR GUY, I KNOW HE REMEMBERS WHAT IT WAS LIKE ONCE. NOSE SEEMS TO HAVE WORRIED ALL THE MEAT FROM THE BONE. AND LOOKS UP, AND QUESTIONS IF HE CAN KEEP THE BONE. OF COURSE YOU CAN BUT NOW YOU AND PUP NEED TO GO BACK ON PATROL. BEFORE YOU GO CAP WANT TO KNOW IF PTG HAS BEEN ANYWHERE BESIDES THE PLACE THAT SMELLS STRONGLY OF RABBIT. NOSE CHECKS HIM OVER, A LITTLE CONFUSED. HE HAS AN OLD SMELL OF SOMETHING STRANGE. IT IS FAINT. MOSTLY HE SMELLS OF RABBIT. YUM!!!! NOSE TELLS CAP. I WILL KEEP YOUR BONE FOR YOU I TELL HIM. OFF HE AND GHOST PUP GO.
I OPEN MY AMULET TO THE ZOO, WHO, INK, SNOOP, INDIGO, AND SONAR, OFF TO PATROL, WITH NOSE AND GHOST PUP. YOU ON THE GROUND CHECK EVERY BUILDING AND EVERY HOLE. IN THE AIR, KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED FOR ANYTHING UNUSUAL, NOSE SAYS IT IS TOO QUIET.
AFTER SENDING OUT MY PATROLS I WATCH AS CAP AND ANGEL TAKE PTG TO HIS ROOM.
RETURN HONEY FIRE'S BOWL TO THE KITCHEN AND RETURN WITH HOT SOUP AND BUTTERED BREAD. I KNOW THERE WILL BE FRESH COFFEE WHEN I FINISH AND A BASKET OF TREATS FOR THOSE IN THE ZOO AND A THERMOS OF COFFEE FOR ME.
I OPEN MY AMULET TO DINKY AND SMIDGE, IF YOU BOY WANT TO YOU CAN SLEEP IN THE BARN LOFT TILL WHATEVER TROUBLE THAT IS COMING IS OVER. LESS CHANCE OF GETTING CAUGHT IN A FIGHT YOU ARE NOT PREPARED FOR. WELL THEY HAVE BEEN ASKED NOW WE WILL SEE IF THEY COME IN. GNOMES HAVE THEIR OWN OPINIONS ON SAFETY.
I GO THROUGH THE BARN, KENNEL, AND CATTERY, CHECKING ON FOOD AND WATER DISHES, TROUGHS AND BUCKETS. GIVING OUT THE TREATS FROM THE KITCHEN. ALL IS WELL IN THE ENCLOSURE FOR NOW.
I GO AND CHECK ON BLOSSOM, CHERRY, STUMP AND FANG. MAKE SURE THEY HAVE FOOD AND WATER ENOUGH FOR THE NIGHT. GIVE EACH A GOOD SCRATCH AND TELL THEM THE CAP WILL COME WHEN HE CAN.
GOLDIE AND DOOGIE ARE BEDDING DOWN WHEN I RETURN THEY ARE STILL INSEPARABLE . DOGGIE IS SO PLUMP AND SLEEK NOW YOU WOULD NOT RECOGNIZE HE AS THE POOR CREATURE CAP HAD BROUGHT IN LAST YEAR.
I SIT ENJOY THE SOUNDS OF EVERYTHING BEDDING DOWN FOR THE NIGHT. HAVE MY COFFEE, AND ABSENTLY SCRATCH SUGAR AND SPICE.
IT IS NOW QUIET IN THE BARN. I OPEN MY BAG, AND COAX IT'S INHABITANTS OUT, I DO THIS AS OFTEN AS I CAN. PRECIOUS IS NOW GETTING BRAVER THE OTHERS TINY AND PRICKLES ARE ALWAYS THE FIRST OUT.
I SIT AND WATCH THEM PLAY AND CHASE EACH OTHER, PRECIOUS IF HE GETS FRIGHTENED USED TO RUN BACK INTO THE BAG. NO I CLOSE IT, NOW HE WILL HIDE BETWEEN THE PAWS OF SUGAR OR SPICE.
THEN WILL COME BACK OUT TO PLAY BEFORE HE WOULD STAY IN THE BAG.
THEY PLAY CHASE AND HIDE AND SEEK, ANIMAL STYLE. WHEN WORN OUT THE COME AND ASK ME TO LET THEM BACK INTO THE BAG. I KNOW IT WILL BE NIGHT, NIGHT WITHIN MOMENTS OF THEIR RETURN.
I THEN GATHER MY BAG. THE THERMOS AND CUP, INTO A BASKET AND RETURN TO THE TEA ROOM.
I am restless as hell .
I do not like the feeling I am getting nor what Nose said all is quiet to quet bad sisn at least my spine tingle is not going off.
Now that PTG is safe and being taken care of by my boys I can put my mind to better use === OMG now ain't that an oxymoron lol
I wonder over to the critters encloser and look around at our brood all clean feed watered and some starting to nod off.
It is amazing how Charlie takes such good loving care of them all how she keeps things in order and spotless.
I wonder out to spend a bit of time with Blossom she wraps her huge trunk around me ah Blossom my beautiful girl I am sorry we do not spend as much time together as before but I know you understand why and that you know all this will pass and all will be free again to romp in the open fields ,, to chase butterflies and smell the morning dew on the grass and flowers.
I fell a head on my shoulder and hear a very loud purr ,,, hello Fang as I scratch his ears ,
I look around for Cherry and Stump and spot them all curled up sound asleep those two are inseparable
I spend time with them and see that they are getting sleepy,,, okay you two get some sleep I will see you tomorrow.
I wonder over to the cave and get pounced on by the pups not so little now lol so we mock wrestle till Momma comes out and puts a stop to play time if not they will romp like this all night long.
I was about to ask were Smoke was when I hear him behind me fresh from a kill .
He gives his kill to Sheba to feed the pups and we walk over to the spring so he cane drink ,
We talk for awhile and he says the same thing as Nose it is to quite and that he is now doing night patrols he does not like the quite and says the game is getting scarce around certain areas a sign we both know to well.
We both agree something is in the air and that he is going to send out for news from the other Dier packs.
I take my leave and go back to The Tea Room with a haunting felling in my gut.
OH, BLOODY L STUFF IS FALLING AGAIN WHAT IS WITH THIS PLACE. WE JUST GET ONE MESS CLEANED UP AND IT STARTS AGAIN.
I HEAD TO THE BARN DODGING FISH, CHICKS, BUNNIES, MICE, SHEEP, DOLLS AND NOW THERE ARE BIRDHOUSES. AT LEAST THE LORDS AND LADYS, CREATURES, BIRDS AND BUTTERFLIES CAN LOOK AFTER THEMSELVES.
AT THE BARN I RALLY ALL THE REST OF MY PETS, AND SEND THE OUT TO DISPATCH THE MICE, PEN THE SHEEP THAT LAND SAFELY, THE OTHERS WILL BE ON THE MENU SOON. THE BUNNIES WILL FEED MANY A HUNTER, THE CHICKS MUST BE PUT INTO THE COOP AND RUN FOR FUTURE USE.
BUT THE FISH, WELL ANY ALIVE WHEN FOUND GO INTO THE MOAT FOR ELLIE AND HER BROOD, OR INTO NEARBY STREAMS. THOSE THAT DON'T MAKE IT TO THE COMPOST PILE, THEY WILL ENRICH IT FOR THE FARMERS NEXT YEAR, GLAD I HAD THE TWO BIG COMPOST AREAS MADE. LAST YEARS IS READY TO BE USED AND THE NEW ONE IS NOW BEING FILLED. THESE FISH WILL SOON BE COVERED WITH WHAT THE BOYS TAKE FROM THE BARN AND BLOSSOM AND CHERRY'S ENCLOSURE.
WITH ORDERS GIVEN I HEAD BACK TO THE TEA ROOM FOR A LITTLE SOMETHING AND COFFEE BEFORE BED.
I watch Charlie come in and see Miss Katt waiting for her with hot coffee and some fingers snacks and a huge thermos of her coffee to take back with her to the barn.
You know as hard as I have tried to get her out of the barn and into her cottage that was built for her there is no way she will go even if I was to hog tie her she would find a way to get free and back to her critters and God love her for it .
W all are so blessed to have her here.
I go to check on PTG before I do border check ,,, something not sitting right in my gut so with Sai and Sword in hand I head out.
Craponacracker I fogot about all these flying pains in the rump.
Oh Ho this gives me an idea.
I remember last year we went through something like this and I remember the boys and I stock piled the bunny pellets I was going to use them but we got side tracked ,
I go back to The Tea Room and see Charlie is almost done and ready to head back to the barn for the night.
Hey Charlie glad I caught you before you turned in,
She eyed me with her what do you want from me now look.
I was on my way to do a perimeter check and took a few hits from the bunnies and chicks as you can see as I wipe my shoulder.
Yeah and she says.
Do you still have the bunnies pellets and your old shotgun?
Yeah whats your point?? your not thinking of putting bunnie crap in my shotgun are you NUTS??
NO I am not NUTS sheesh woman you have a way with words,,, you do know that that bunny crap as you call it turn into rock hard pellets.
So I was thinking we can use them if we run out of bullets and gun powder for the canyons,
Just stuff some wool in the barrel of a canyon load up the pellets and let it fly.
HUM you might have something there I will think more on it and off she went.
I get a chill and go back out to do my perimeter check for some reason I head for The Harbor Area.
IS THAT MAN NUTS, RABBIT POOP OUT OF A SHOTGUN. I AM NOT LOADING SHELLS WITH IT. AND WHAT A MESS IT WOULD MAKE OF THE BARRELS, NOT WANTING TO CLEAN THAT MESS.
A CANNON NOPE NOT THERE EITHER. A TREBUCHET, WE DO HAVE THE SMALL ONES THAT PTG HAD MADE. NOT SURE THAT THE PELLETS WOULD EVEN SLOW DOWN THE SMELLY LOT THAT WILL BE COMING. WHAT WAS HE THINKING, YOU NEED GUN POWDER TO MAKE GUNS OR CANNONS WORK. HE MUST BE REALLY TIRED TO THINK THAT RABBIT POOP COULD REPLACE GUN POWDER. I AM SURE SALTY HAS SOME BARRELS STASHED OR PIRATE PETE. OF COURSE GETTING IT FROM THEM WOULD COST DEARLY THEY ARE BOTH THIEVES WHEN IT COMES TO THAT.
THE MAN WILL JUST HAVE TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING ELSE.
I HEAD TO THE BARN FOR ONE LAST CHECK OF THE ZOO. THEN BACK TO MY ROOM TO SLEEP. I KNOW I SPEND MOST OF MY TIME IN THE BARN BUT I DO ACTUALLY SLEEP IN MY COZY ROOM. MUCH NICER TO SLEEP IN A BED THAN A PILE OF STRAW. NO BITS OF STRAW IN STRANGE PLACES IN THE MORNING.
Well that was a mild dressing down not as bad as I thought she would throw at me,\And she is right I am very tired and dust bunnies fighting with me grey matter and dodging short circutes that me grey matter never really managed to fix so yeah I am tired but one more thing to do then maybe I can get some shut eye.
I duck as those red birds go crazy trying to catch the bukkerflies.
I am glad those mice and bunnies are in half shells and not poping all over the place just have to watch for piles I wonder how they do that ? stop in mid air dump then off again??
I shake my head yeah Cap you are losing it .
