FINN CAME IN FROM THE KITCHEN, THE LOOK ON HIS FACE TOLD ME THAT ALL WAS NOT WELL, THEY HAD GONE TO MIRROR LAKE TO PETE'S BOAT ON TO FIND SOMEONE HAD MADE A HOLE IN IT. NOW THEY WERE THERE AND NO WHERE ELSE TO GO. I TOLD HIM TO BRING HIS PEOPLE TO THE TEA ROOM WE WOULD FIND ROOM FOR THEM IN THE ENCLOSURE OR THE CASTLE. HE SAID THE ENCLOSURE WOULD DO AS LONG AND THE ANIMALS DID NOT THINK OF THEM AS FOOD OR PLAYTHINGS. I OPENED MY AMULET AND CALLED TO NOSE AND NIX. I AM SENDING SOME FRIENDS TO THE ENCLOSURE MAKE THE WELCOME. THEN I SAID DO NOT TREAT THEM AS FOOD OR TOYS. THEY ARE SMALL.
I ASKED FINN IF HE HAD ANY IDEA WHERE THE GNOME BUILDERS HAD GONE. HE SHOOK HIS HEAD.
IT WAS WORTH A SHOT. TO BAD BREEZE HAD SENT HE BAG TO DELPHI ALREADY. THEY COULD HAVE GONE WITH BIG KITTY AND FRIENDS.
I WAS WISHING MY BAG WAS LIKE HERS.
THANKS TO ANNA NOW FINN AND HIS PEOPLE WILL BE SAFE IN THE ENCLOSURE. ONE LESS WORRY.
Boats with holes!
More people of all races arriving by the hour!
More pets and furry friends arriving by the minute!
Good thing there is a lot of food int he pantry to use up!!! Just keep cooking...
I need information!
Location of hole; size of hole; place of hole (is above or below waterline)
Experienced boat-yard people available
I have no idea where I am but I have encountered a beautiful unicorn in the Shining Split.
She informs me that pets, humans and furry creatures are in extreme danger and that the boat that they were depending on is slowly sinking
The unicorn quickly transports me to Cloud City and wields her horn to release the Griffin. The Griffin gracefully and thankfully flies to the Cloud City Customs Airship Tower. The airship, speedily arrives to the Harbor Port. The boat slowly sinks in the harbor. Everyone is welcome on the airship, but where will we go?
While I await my partners brains getting into overdrive I begin to muse.
I am gob-smacked and at a total loss for thought word or deed at the moment!
Do I have a cunning plan?
I'm afraid not!
So to while away some spare minutes I recall a famous UK radio program that ran for many years
It was (and still is) called Desert Island Discs
Celebrities are interviewed and told they will be marooned on a desert island.
They are then asked to name 6(?) gramophone records (that shows you how old the program is!) together with one book (apart from the Bible [sorry folks we are a Christian nation officially] and Shakespeare.
SOoooooo.... what book do I want on my Kindle (now all hi-tech!)?
PTG Seems to be at a loss but a thought pops into my head...(That's odd, I usually only think of food...)
Um, excuse me but we are talking about repairing a boat, right? What about re-purposing the wood the Gnome builders used to make the new coffee/tea bar? They said it was specially treated so no liquids would stain or permeate it...
What a good idea!
As I am also Keeper of the HOS Repository I have access to ALL the inventory.
If we use up the stock there it will soon get renewed as our worthy citizens are always frantic in their game play.
I am just about to tell my broom about the list of materials that our friend Kat has suggested, when a very bedraggled and wet little dog hurls into the Tea Room.
It has a shake to rid its coat of rank fetid water and then leaps onto Charlie' lap
A very strange canine conversation then occurs between the dog, some unseen ethereal being and Charlie.
The outcome of this is that our dog just managed to escape from my hired boat before it sank into the harbor!
The look of horror on Charlie's face eased when she found that it was the VERY last creature to escape and that the whole "zoo" together with all of our packed storage are ensconced in a very large blimp which is at this moment hidden under the harbor walls.
So I now need another cunning plan
I AM SITTING OUT OF THE WAY WAITING TO LEAVE. WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN A WET BEDRAGGLED DOG RACES INTO THE TEA ROOM, SHAKES AND JUMPS INTO MY LAP. IT IS NICKIE MY SLED DOG. I WANTED TO ASK HOW HE HAD GOTTEN HERE SINCE I HAD LEFT HIM WITH MY SON. THEN I NOTICED A GHOST HAD COME IN WITH HIM. THE GHOST HAD BEEN A SAILOR, HE'S LIVED AT MIRROR LAKE. HE SAID AN AIRSHIP HAD COME FOR ALL THE PETS AND CARGO ON THE SINKING SHIP. I ASKED IF THE ELVES WERE OK. YES, HE SAID THEY HAD HELPED GET THE PETS OUT. WHAT OF THIS LITTLE SCAMP. HE LAUGHED, HE HAD STOWED AWAY SO NO ONE KNEW HE WAS THERE. BUT AS THE SHIP SANK UNDER THE WATER HE POPPED UP AND SWAM TO SHORE. I DO NOT KNOW HOW HE FOUND HIS WAY HER BUT HE DID.
I THANKED THE SAILOR. ASKED IF HE WOULD BE STAYING IN MIRROR LAKE OR WOULD HE TRAVEL WITH US TO DELPHI. HE SCRATCHED HIS HEAD, NO MY PLACE IS WITH PETE. WELL THANK YOU FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE. AND LETTING ME KNOW THE REST ARE SAFE.` OKAY, TROUBLE LET'S GET YOU CLEANED UP YOU STINK OF DEAD FISH. I TOOK HIM TO THE ENCLOSURE FOR A QUICK BATH.
AND STOPPED TO SEE IF DOC POPPET WAS IN HIS OFFICE. HE WAS HE HAD SENT MOST OF HIS GEAR AHEAD BUT HE WAS PACKING THE REST IN THE BAGS HE WOULD CARRY. JUST THING HE MIGHT NEED BEFORE EVERYTHING WAS UNPACKED. HE HAD PUT THE CHIPS IN THIS BAG. NOT SURE HOW SOON NEW PETS WOULD START TO ARRIVE IN DELPHI. HE CHIPPED TROUBLE. AND WE WENT BACK TO THE TEA ROOM TO WAIT FOR PTG TO LEAD US TO THE PROMISED LAND.
