Now that we've taken care of Pup's costume, it's time to tackle Miss Opel's. Cap and I ran a few options by her but like Charlie she is not into costumes. **sigh** Although, she did agree to doing face paint as it is part of her culture but said she hopes the heat from the kitchen does not melt it off!! LOL
This party is going to be a great get together and a time for all to get to know each other .
This is so great neighbors from many different areas around MC land seeing each in passing shopping at the markets in Cloud City,.. fishing at the Harbor .. shopping at Kaley's and now all here with us with there own homes there own land ,,,
That reminds me I have to get Charlie together with her workers the kids need a school and we also need a clinic so when Doc Deadman and Nurse Krachet they will have a place to work anything more pressing we have the Hospital .
I walk over to The Tailor's cottage where he and his wife * a seamstress* are working on adding to there home a work shop where they can build up a business hum I wonder if the Shoe Maker will build a shoe repair close to them ,,,, one stop shopping lol
Good day to you I have a request... I have some material I would love it if you can make me some Pinata's ??
But of course Cap tell us what you would like and it will be our pleasure.
Great thank you and here ( I hand him a pouch with gold coins in it if it is not enough just let me know.
No no no Cap we can not accept payment it will be a pleasure to contribute to the party and a small thank you for all you have done for all of us.
Thank you so much but it my honor to do what I can for you all and this all would not be possible if it where not for my gang of slightly bent group ,, I could not have done this with out them.
Now here is what I would like,,,, I handed them some rough sketches made by Angel,,, #1 a huge MURK #2 a huge uggie Arabella #3 a huge RAT FACED CEO then several cute one that will be stuffed with toys and candies for the kiddies and coupons for rides prizes etc.
The both had huge smiles and said this will be fun and they will be ready for the Party.
One more check off my list.
On my way to see Charlie I grab some apples bananas nuts lettuce fish for the kitties === one happy Cap today
I sit at the Tea Room table and sip my favorite brew while watching the others stuff delicious scones into their mouths
I am thinking about what fun and games we can have this weekend.
The food and drink to be provided have been sorted out and some of the games finalized.
I have been faced with an uphill battle with the others on whether to charge our “customers” an entrance fee or not.
Finally, it has been agreed to charge a nominal fee for the adults, since they are now all very rich after the Halloween Event
The children will be admitted free and we have a few surprises for them.
We now have a large stock of bracelets taken from the special event Halloween Table in the HOS Repository.
I will give these out to all the children and touch each of them with my electrified hand .
Then they will glow in the dark as they play in the tunnels with Charlie’s pets.
I have also found a stash of sparklers in Roo’s hoard of explosives.
I’ll give one of these also to each child and touch the end with my “special” hand when we all come together at the end of the festivities.
The results should be spectacular!
My broom has finished cleaning and the whole place is immaculate.
But I do so hope that it won’t last when our guests arrive!
All I need to do now is to send a stern warning to our unworthy CEO NOT to interfere in any way with our Happy Time!
I NOD TO CAP AS I TAKE MY BOUNTY TO THE BARN. HAVE TO BONE THE FISH, AND TUCK AWAY THE REST OF THE FRUIT WHERE JL CAN'T GET TO IT. ALL IN AND AROUND THE BARN IS ALMOST READY, CAT'S WELL BRUSHED. DOG'S HAVE HAD BATHS. BUT ALL WILL NEED BRUSHED AGAIN THE DAY OF THE PARTY. BABY HAS BEEN BATHED AND HE LIGHTS CHECKED OUT SHE IS GOOD TO GO. THE CART SWEPT OUT WASHED AND PUT AWAY WITH A TARP OVER IT TO KEEP IT CLEAN.
AFTER I FINISH HERE TONIGHT A LONG SHOWER OF TWO TO GET THE FISH STINK OFF BUT THAT IS THE PRICE I PAY FOR GIVING THE CATS A TREAT OF FRESH FISH.
"Whats this I'm hearing dear Friends?" Captain Randy's having the Taylor and His wife make three Pinatas following the sketches our talented Artist Angel drew....hummmm certainly hope they won't be too Scary for the Wee Children to approach and give a good wack to. One Person will be really, really "Pleased" to give the Murk one many, many blows with Her Mighty Staff ....Sigh....maybe after She's done with it, will the little One's Prizes will be alright?. Do you think that maybe Captain Randy better have 2 of the Murk Pinatas made...one for Pup to take Her displeasure on and one for the attending Children? Speaking of Pup, there She goes heading on over to find Charlie and give Her a hand with the Critters and Children...when no longer needed by Charlie, Pup intends to ask Captain Randy if they could take a quick ride around the Castle's Realm and see if anything else is needed and help whoever need's assistant's getting ready for the Fall Festival...I can tell you Dear Friend's, Pup's Heart is about to burst with all the "Joy" and "Love" Shes feeling right now for Her Friends bosom Companions...I think Her great big Silly Grin tell' it all don't you??!!
I had an idea lol I know that is rare,,,
I called Pup via Amulet and told her to meet me in the open field and to bring her arsenal .
Pup came ruining like a bunny thinking there was trouble,,, Here Cap what's up you sounded like there was trouble ,,, no no Pup I just thought you would show me what you have learned so far ,,,, time is getting closer for the Queen to take us to Pern and you and Snow be presented as Dragon and her rider .
Okay lets see what you got and remember this a mock fight so no real rough stuff ,, as I said that I took a large swing just over her head with my Sai ,,, Pup dropped to one knee ,,, did a head first roll and landed with her staff over her head.
Very well done Pup now do a slow prowl over there by that bush ,,, she crouched like a Tiger and moved towards the bush ready to strike,,,
I pulled the rope I had rigged up to the scarecrow ,,,, I had put a mask and a sign ******MURK***********
PUP looked undecided as what to do remembering my words this was a mock battle.
I went to her and said if that had been real you would dead,,,, but but but Cap,,,, no Cap what have I taught you>>
She then got mad and said but you said this was a mock fight and no real fight ,, yes I said that but when in a situation follow your instinct ,, this is a test of what you have learned ,,, how and what to do in any situation,, she looked so confused but I knew she was thinking over what I had said,,
Okay Cap I think I understand ,,,, a warrior always follows there instincts and at times have to go against orders .
Exactly Pup always trust your feelings now see that rat faces Murk I made for you ,,,, she nodded ,, okay kiddo show me what you really feel towards him.
She raised he staff and with a blood curdling scream she ran and for the next 10 minutes she slashed,chopped,stabbed until there was nothing left and she was so exhausted she could not move her arms that held her staff that is when I swiped again over her head and her reaction was spot on.
There you go Pup my lill warrior .... how do you feel?
She did not have to answer the silly grin on her face said it all .
I brushed her wet hair from her face and said okay time to clean up and get ready for the party.
I walked back to the Tea Room like a proud Papa who's chuld just took there first step.
I stop and WOW WOW HOLY COW WOW as I stare at the huge table set up against the back wall,, it was loaded with deserts .
Opel came out of the kitchen with a large freshly made loaf of bread right from the wood burning stove /oven
Ain't it sumthin Cap the ladies have been coming since early this morning bring this desserts,,, there contribution to the party.
My mouth was drooling over the sight and smell .
Opel said the boys did a great job on the pits out back where she and Miss Katt have been roasting,,, the Pig,,, the Beef,, several chickens , a few Ginny Hens and that shortly her and Miss Katt will put on the hot coals the corn ,,, potatoes and the green and yellow beans .... all this comes from the Harvest.
This celebration is going to be awesome.
Okay I am off to get ready everyone should be coming soon so I have to get ready and so does PTG ,, Angel and Charlie if she is not hiding lol
Opel had a great idea, we are putting the bread table on 1 side of the fireplace to keep it nice and hot and the hot food on the other side. Cold food across the room, away from the fire.
Oh, don’t forget the corn bread please Opel, I say as I bring the potatoes out to bake in the hearth. Right she says, can’t forget cornbread with butter and honey!
Stuffing and dressing are ready, trays of carved, roasted meats, gravy, and veggies galore. Contributions from the neighbors are out, along with the cakes, pies, cookies and bread puddings on the dessert tables with whipped creams, decadent sauces and toppings alongside.
I just hope we haven’t forgotten anything Miss Opel! Chirrup… what Pearl? – DOH! The fruit baskets – be right back!
Ooh! Smelling and seeing all this wonderful food has my mouth watering! Miss Katt and Miss Opel...you have out done yourselves and have made Mrs. Fletcher proud! I can't help myself, I just have to have a bit of everything! And, my favorite...the desserts which are to die for!
Okay, now to walk it all off or I'll fall into a food coma. LOL I see all the kids with their cool glow bracelets on so I decide I'll escort them through the tunnels. Good idea, PTG, giving the kids the glow bracelets! I'd like a purple one, please, and light it up!!
I hope Cap gets set up with the pinatas by the time we're done, since I know that was his pet project. I heard he had one for the adults and one for the kids so he and Pup would manage one group each.
After the tunnels, I bring the kids over to the galvanized tubs to play bobbin' for apples. I think I'll just stand by with towels. Hahahaha Once the prizes were handed out and faces were dried off, they ran off in different directions.....some to go for the hay ride, and some to go visit the animals in the petting area. I'll ask Charlie which one she wants me to help with so she can tend to the other. Whew! The kids aren't the only ones who will be sleeping good tonight......
PUP HAD BEEN A BIG HELP GETTING ALL THE CATS AND DOGS READY. HELPED GET THE HAY IN THE CART. I TOLD HER WHAT A BIG HELP SHE HAD BEEN, I WAS ABOUT TO TELL HER TO GO AND GET READY FOR THE PARTY, WHEN CAP CALLED HER.
OFF SHE WENT AT A DEAD RUN. AH! TO HAVE THAT KIND OF ENERGY AGAIN.
I LOOKED AROUND EVERYTHING WAS CLEAN AND NEAT, BABY AND BEAU, WERE READY AS WERE ALL THE OTHER ANIMALS.
I WENT TO DOOGIE, SCRATCHING BETWEEN HIS EARS AND STROKING HIS SOFT MUZZLE. DOOGIE A LOT OF PEOPLE WELL BE HERE SOON. NO ONE WILL HURT YOU SO BE PATIENT WITH THE CHILDREN, AND THE ADULTS. YOU ARE SAFE HERE, GOLDIE WILL WATCH OVER YOU. I HAD THUG A ROPE ACROSS THE ENTRANCE TO THE BACK OF THE BARN WHERE I KEPT THE CART. DID NOT WANT PEOPLE WANDERING BACK THERE. NOTHING TO SEE THERE ANYWAY.
GOLDIE IF DOOGIE GETS FRIGHTENED. TAKE HIM BACK WHERE I STORE THE CART. IT IS OFF LIMITS TONIGHT.
WELL GUESS I SHOULD GO TO THE TEA ROOM FOR THE MEET AND GREET. GRAB SOME COFFEE LET PEOPLE KNOW WHERE AND WHEN THE HAY RIDES WILL BE.
LET THEM PLAY WITH THE CATS AND DOGS. SEE AND PET BABY AND BEAU. KEEP AN EYE ON DOOGIE HE HAS NOT BEEN PART OF ONE OF THESE AFFAIRS BEFORE.
ONE THE HAY RIDES START IT WILL BE UP TO GOLDIE TO WATCH HIM.
HOPE THE DINKY AND SMIDGE SHOW SOON. I NEED THEM TO WATCH THE ZOO WHEN I AM OUT WITH BABY AND THE CART. HAY RIDES WERE POPULAR LAST YEAR.
AND I WILL BE NEEDED WHEN THE CHILDREN AND THE DOGS DO THE TUNNEL MAZES.
IT SHOULD BE INTERESTING. I DID HAVE THE DOGS DO THEM BEFORE THEY WHERE CLEANED UP SO THEY WILL KNOW THEM AND NOT LOSE ANY OF THE BRAVE CHILDREN WHO TRY THEM.
I REACH THE KITCHEN. SEE MY GNOMES TUCKED INTO A GREAT DEAL OF FOOD AT THE TABLE IN THE KITCHEN. I GRAB SOME COFFEE. AND SIT WITH THEM, I OUTLINE WHAT I NEED THEM TO DO WHEN. I WILL ALSO NEED YOU TO WATCH THE CHILDREN WHEN THEY COME TO PLAY WITH THE CAT AND DOGS. I WILL STAY WHERE I CAN SEE BABY, BEAU, GOLDIE AND DOOGIE.
CAT BRINGS ME SOME MEAT AND VEGGIES WHICH I EAT. THE GO TO CLEAN UP. SO I CAN BE PRESENTABLE FOR THE MEET AND GREET.
I WILL FINISH EATING WHEN ALL HAVE LEFT AND THE ANIMALS ARE SETTLED FOR THE NIGHT.
TELLING THIS TO KATT AND OPAL AS I HEAD FOR MY ROOM. I KNOW THEY WILL SAVE ME SOMETHING GOOD.
