Okay out of the pond and stand straight if you can.

Hans lets out a yelp as on of the brood gives him a farewell  nip.

I look over at the en closer and see Charlie pushing the wheel barrel  man that woman is mule headed never listens so I yell over== Charlie what did I say?? knock it off  .... take Melody to Cloud City and show her the sights and  hook up with Opel and Miss Katt.

She gives me a back handed wave like yeah yeah lets hope Melody can get her go.

The boys stand before me heads hung low and saying sorry Cap .

So this is what you do when I am away??

Wen the Cap is away the boys play??

The boys I count on to keep things in order and  everyone safe?

What would you have done if there had been a breech?

Pup is in Pern earning her battle band,,, PTG well I still do not know where he is and Angel well ,,,, oh there she is hold on a sec Angel but she is so excited she going off like a machine gun.

Ok Ok slow down let me finish with this mess then we can head to the Tea Room.

I growl at my boys ... first get your sorry arses to to the compound and do EXACTLY what Charlie tells you to do, I want that place spotless ,then same thing for the court yard,, clean up ALL the crap and take care of  that storm mess,, Jacob and the neighbors will help with what has to be butchered and what ones are hurt Doc. Felix will handle that.

Okay Cap on it now after we clean up... no no no not so fast  clean up what I said then and only then you will go and shower and burn those discussing cloths you will not step a foot into the Tea Room until  you are also spotless you know Opel's nose.

The Tea Room is to be put back the way it was every thing and in it's place and any and repairs to be done.

Now move it  you do not have much time .

Angel and  watch as they tear of to the compound .

Man Cap you put the fear of Charlie and Opel in them lol

I had Angel sit at a table that was not over turned or full of feathers and smashed fruit.

Be right back how about a cold drink?

Lets see f Opel has any of that fruit punch she makes man it is good,,, I grab the jug and two clean frosty jugs .

We drink and feel Opel's golden liquid hit the spot .

I fill Angel in about my visit to our Queen and show her the part of the map and what I am to do to gather all the parts that will get me where TLOD is hiding.

She said he is in a weakened state and trying to gather more fighters and more black evil.

So I have a huge quest and will nee the whole map and lots of help... seems every one we know has a part of the map and are waiting to help me like Annabelle,, Shadow... and get this even Arabella .

I also tell her about Pup that will  be back very soon as the Queen says she is almost ready to take her rightful place as Snow;s rider Pup does not know that part lol she thinks she is doing special training .

I wish I could tell Angel her part of it but right now I am sworn by The Queen.

I look at my pocket watch ,,,wow getting late have to start dinner,,, just then my boys come in and looking and smelling like new born babes.

They report all is clean and repaired out side ...  and the animals ask?  yes Cap as you said but the cold and ice storage is full to bursting do you want us to do that now??

No no time now get the Tea Room done first and make sure it is done right ,,, then come in the kitchen there be peeling to be done I will start the meat now geterdone.

I KNEW IT,  CAP YELLS AT ME TO STOP,  I GUESS HE THINKS THE BOYS ARE SOBER ENOUGH TO WORK.   I HOPE SO.   I TELL THEM TO FINISH CLEANING STALLS AND PUT DOWN FRESH BEDDING FOR THE ANIMALS.   THEN CLEAN THE CATTERY AND MAKE SURE NOT TO MIX THEIR LITTER WITH THE STRAW FROM THE STABLE SIDE.    MAKE SURE THE DOG HAVE NOT LEFT SMALL UNWANTED PRESENTS ON THE FLOOR OF THE KENNEL.    THEN FEED AND WATER EVERYONE.  

I HEAD FOR THE PENS WHERE MELODY IS TENDING TO THE INJURED FROM THE STORM.   

MELODY,  CAP SAID WE COULD JOIN OPAL AND KATT IN CLOUD CITY FOR SUPPER.

SHE GRINS,  WELL AT LEAST WE DON'T HAVE TO FIND OUT IF THE MAN CAN COOK.  CAN'T SAY I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO EITHER OVER COOKED OF UNDERCOOKED FOOD.    I AM TIRED AND HUNGRY.    SHE WASHED UP AFTER LOOKING AT, AND TENDING THE INJURED IN THE PEN.    SHE LOOKED AT HER CLOTHES.  THEY WERE A BIT ON THE DIRTY SIDE.   I GRINNED AND SAID NOT TO WORRY,  IT JUST SHOWS YOU ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING BESIDES SIT AROUND AND LOOK PRETTY.   I MYSELF WASN'T THE CLEANEST.  AND MY BOOTS,  WELL LETS JUST SAY THE WERE NOT CLEAN.   BUT WE WORK WITH ANIMALS AND THEY DO NOT CARE IF WE ARE SHINY AND BRIGHT.   THEY JUST LIKE US OR NOT ANY WAY WE COME.   

MELODY AND I TOOK OFF FOR CLOUD CITY.  MORE OR LESS HAPPY ABOUT MISSING DINNER AT THE TEA ROOM.

I stop and listen to Charlie talking about if I can cook or not  lol

She has no idea lol I learned from the best my Grandmother whom I call Gammie and always will was a master cook and backer 

I wanted so bad to say into the Amulet ,,, hey Charlie I see you forgot to change the setting on your Amulet to mute lol.

Want me to fix you two ladies a plate and you can heat it up tomorrow?

She flips me the bird says to Melodie what a pain that man can be..

I watch as they go clea up to go join Opel and Miss Katt will be good for Charlie she knows the critters are in good hands.

I enter my cottage and find my box I had ordered  was on my table' good the Amulets and chips have arrived seeing our extended family is growing and more critters so I was getting short.

I took one for Melodie and set it to all for now and will explain  or better still I will ask Angel to teach her.

I entered The Tea Room and saw and smelled the boys wow all spic and span and even sober Okay you sea dogs I am very disappointed in you and your actions ... you know how U depend on you to see all is safe and to protect our new home here,,,so for the 3 weeks you will be under my watchful eyes and you will follow every order you are given understood.

They will come from me or Opel or Miss Katt or Charlie so no questions just do it.

Brutus come with me grab the very large roasting pan,,, we enter the ice box and I look and find the back strip I am looking for and tell Brutus put it in the pot as I grab a very good bottle of cooking wine.

Even Brutus has trouble to carry the pot ith the 500 lb back stripback waiting for us.

so I help by opening the door snicker*

Back in the kitchen the boys await there orders.

Okay you  three start washing peeling and chopping 100 lbs of onions,potatoes.green beans.yellow beans and 5 lbs of parsley Get to it time is short.

Brut and I lay the stripe on the extra large cutting table so I show him how to rub it with   my special spice mix I always have ready.

WE roll and spice till it is fully covered.

I turn to to the massive stove and oven and they look ready,

On the stove I Place the pan and pour in half the wine then ad sugar I watch as it bubbles and starts to splatter and spit smoke.

Okay Brutus grab 4 long pronged fork and follow me.

Every few minutes we roll until every side is now a golden  brown i stand back as I pour the rest of the wine in............ whoooooooooooooooosh as wine hits the juice.... I let it burn of most of the wine then fill half way with water.

I turn the stove way low and wait for the onions,

Onions in and Brut cover the pan and in the oven it goes.

We finish all the veggies and are now salted and simmering away.

I look around the kitchen and know why Opel and Miss Katt love to cook in here so much space so many cupboards counter space and my favorite the butcher block where on both sides have a knife rack big enough to hold every cooking knife.

Our new Black smith is an artist when it comes to copper and gold work.

He is now making Opel a 500 dinner setting gold trimmed and ever thing that goes with the set.

His friend and neighbor is a glass and is making all and I mean all the glass ware .

I asked him if he could make me a sample of his work and he said come back in an hour .

When I returned shining before me was the most beautiful goblet gold rimed and the kicker he made a raised Dragon,,, I had no words.

He Had made two One had Frost on it the other was Our Golden Queen.

He said he is working on a full set with all The Dragons and there names

Captain Randy I do not want a single coin or any payment you saved my family and my self and gave us this beautiful new home and what every you need it is tours.

I shake the memory and say to meself hey get moving.

The Veggies are ready on the top  burners just have to be turned up

Okay boys break time go outside have a smoke and a coffee.

On the other side of the kitchen  I make a 4 layer double chocolate cake with cream cheese frosty and a 5 layer banana nut cake with maple nut   frosting  and 3 dozen peanut butter cookies

I test the roast and smack my lips perfect.

OKAY BOYS TIME TO SET THE TABLES

MAKE SURE THERE IS PLENTY OF MILK AND JUICE FOR THE LIILL ONES.

i remove the cakes to cool and decorate  cookies are on a rack to cool.

Every thing is done and place on the heat lamp table all we need is someone to at all this lol

I see the ladies never forget to bring us there special bread and buns that are set on the table to be cut as much as you want or buns.

I at the head table with Angel rise and lift our glasses as I said good evening all  friends neighbors and family welcome welcome.

Bless you all now dig in while it is hot.

It looks like my efforts were well enjoy by empty plates and the men pating there very full belies.

I call attention and tell everyone there is plenty left so help yourselves to take home.

Angel joins the women folk and get the names of the new born so she can add them to the morning edition of  the paper.

While the children play I invite the men to join me outside for a smoke and a small glass of my honey rum.

Jacob says hey Cap that was a super duper dinner  who knew lol a man of many talents you are.

Well it is geting late and time to get the lill ones home  to bath and to bed.

Again thank you Cap see you tomorrow let us know if you need and supplies  for Opel,,speaking of we hear the cart coming down the gravel road and the sound of  laughing.

Every one gets ready to leave and I check the dining room and kitchen,,,wow every thing is spotless and even fresh flowers on each table and the kitchen done to perfection as Hoss hangs the last pot.

I go back out side with the boys and send them to the cottages telling them 5 am tomorrow  to do there next job.

I hear the hellos as the cart gets closer,

I step over to help the ladies down Opel then Miss Katt then Melodie Charlie slaps my hand away I can do it myself ya big galoot.

Opel asks if I could get the packages and when I looked in the back my heart fliped OMG the bought out the town oh I do not want to see my bill or the grin from ear to ear from the store owners.

Angel joined us and said wow now that is what I call a shopping trip,,, come on ladies tell me all and show me what you got.

I grab the rest of the baga boxes and followed them in The Tea Room,,, 

I got away by going in the kitchen to heat water for tea and Charlies coffee.

They were going on about the new things the bought ,, Opel and Miss Katt got new aprons and oven mitts and tea towels and two of the biggest sun hats I have ever seen.

And Lady things you know what I mean lol,,, Melodie showed Angel a beautiful sun dress and matching hat  and shoes  the color was a perfect match that brought out those gorgeous eyes,

Opel handed a bag to Angel here this is for you ,,, what?? you did not have to get me any thing ,, now now you being our link to al the news so hush and look.

Angel open her bag and there was a leather bond diary with her name in gold and 4 night gowns the ones she loves so much and would live in if she could,,, she looked at each one and her eyes kinda watered over  because each one had a kitten on the front  playing with balls twin feathers and one with I meow you.

As the ladies all hugged I went to get the tray with the coffee tea and a new thermos for Charlie big enough to keep her popping for days lol

So Charlie what did you get?

Well if it is any of your bees wax  got these and held up a new pair of rubber boots and a new pairs of work gloves the rest you need not know and thank you ya big galoot,

We talked for awhile until I said well Ladies it is getting late and I have an early morning and I suggest you all get some sleep you have had a big day.

Opel leaned over and gave me a peck on my cheek and whispered thank you My Cap and the place is perfect.

Good night Ladies Miss Melodie me I see you to you cottage?

Why thank you sir that is very kind of you but my room is just upstairs *giggle*

I smile no it change places may I show you as I extended my arm,

She took my arm and I walked her to her surprize,

I stopped and asked her to close her eyes,, with a raised eyebrow she did so ,,I turned her around and said open,,,

Melodie here is your new home I hope you approve.

She gasp covering her mouth exclaiming this is for me?? but Randy I was fine in the room in The Tea Room.

May I as I leaned to open the door.

She stepped in and was speechless as she took it all in,,,, now if any thing is not right just say so and it will be fixed.

I had made sure she had a full bath and a small kitchenette and a fireplace already stacked with wood and already lite Charlies Gnomes are amazing and it was perfect.

I went and lite the fireplace and said I will say goodnight now and sleep tight is all I got out for she jumped into my arms and kissed me so tenderly.

My heart exploded as I kissed her back.

You taste like honey she said softly I smiled and you taste of mint from her mint julep.

I must go as much as I do not want to ,,, I understand  and yes it is better,, see you tomorrow then ?

Yes for breakfast Opel will make what ever you want.

I touched her cheek and left 

 

I TOOK MY BOOTS TO THE KITCHEN AND SET THEM OUTSIDE THE DOOR.  NEW OR NOT THAT IS WHERE THEY BELONGED.   STUFFED THE NEW GLOVES IN THE RIGHT ONE.   EITHER THAT OR I WOULD FORGET THEM IN THE MORNING.   TOOK THE REST OF MY PACKAGES TO MY ROOM.   THERE HAD BEEN A SALE ON WINTER CLOTHES.  I HAD GOTTEN 3 NEW FLANNEL SHIRTS.  AND A COUPLE PAIR OF LINED WINTER BRITCHES.   NOSY OLD MAN,  NONE OF HIS BUSINESS WHAT I HAD GOTTEN.    PUT THE CLOTHES ASIDED.   HAVE TO WASH THEM THEN PUT THEM AWAY.  I HAD NOTICED THAT A COUPLE OF MY WORK SHIRTS WHERE GETTING A LITTLE THIN AND THREAD BARE.   

GOT READY FOR BED AND WAS READY TO SLIP INTO IT.   HOPE ALL IS WELL IN THE ZOO.   SHOULD HAVE CHECKED ON MY WAY IN.  THEN SUGAR AND SPICE, SLIPPED IN THROUGH THE LARGE PET DOOR.  TRUTH BE TOLD IT HAD BEEN THE DOOR TO THE OUTSIDE TILL MY GNOMES AND PUT IT IN LIKE A SWINGING BAR DOOR.  THAT WAY THE BIG CATS COULD GO OUT IN THE NIGHT WITHOUT WAKING ME.   THEY HAD GONE TO CLOUD CITY WITH US.  NOT THAT ANYONE NOTICED.  BUT I KNEW THEY WERE NEVER FAR AWAY.

After I left Melody to settle in her new home I went around and did a perimeter check .. twice lol

I could still feel her lips on mine and my heart was still racing I was like a teenager after there first kiss ,,, I ran a hand over my cheek expecting to find a face full off zits lol

I look into Zoo as Charlie calls it and  checked on Doggie who  was fast asleep with on lilll kitten on his back,

My head was racing so I walked up to me special spot and pulled out my pipe.

Leaning against the tree on the hill side I had a perfect view of our area ,, the street lights that been made by the boys and Charlies worker Gnomes  gave just enough light to illuminate the walk ways the roads and the cottages it was so calming and looked like a post card.

It is amazing the work and the progress that has been made in turning this desolated area into a home to all that are here and to all to come,,, even future plans  to fix up the church can you see it ,,, weddings christenings and Sunday services Sunday School for the lill  ones,

But now I have a huge worry,,, Melody.

I never ever expected to meet or more so fall in love.

How do I explain to her who I am?

Being a solider sent here to fight an evil power,, a dragon rider  who's  Queen is The Golden Queen of Pern?

What happens when my Quest is completed and  The Queen her mate The Wise One *** he is the main reason I am here to find and reunite him with his mate**** Frost Snow Brule Jewel and pup return to Pern?

And the big one ,,, what will be her reaction to all this and when I tell her I am immortal?

I need guidance  need to speak to My Queen.

I must of dozed off I woke to the sounds of birds chirping and voices from The Tea Room.

I walk past the boys ,, morning boys go ahead and eat I have to grab a quick shower and change wa out all night checking up on things,, and by the way ... paused as the boys held there breath,,,, great job well done

I hear a huge sigh of relief as I say be back in a bit.

Aw, that was so sweet of Opel and Miss Katt to think of me.  I just love my new diary!  And, the engraving is exquisite.  Actually, their timing couldn't be better because Cap now wants me to record all the names of the newborns for tomorrow's edition of the paper.  It turns out, there are quite a few!  Let's see, we've got Adele, Annie, Anthony, Archie, Belinda, Betty, Braydon, Harry, Johnny, Melissa, Ricky, Sienna, Thomas, Ulrich, Wendall, and Wally.  Looks like our new home is expanding quite quickly, creating many generations that will carry on here.  heart_eyes

As I head out to my office I see Cap escorting Melody to her new digs.  That sure was a big surprise!  I've never seen Cap like this before.  My reporter instincts are telling me he has fallen for the new vet, and fallen hard!  I can't wait to rib him a little.  LOL

I grab quick shower get dressed grab the morning edition take a minute to glance at it then turn to the Birth *** do not look at the deaths section**** jumpin jiminy our our farmers has been busy lol ,

I fold the paper under my arm as I need to record this in the main log.

I reach The Tea Room and see Angel and Melody hunched over the paper.

Good morning Ladies  Charlie been and gone already?

Yes Angel says you just missed her.

Okay I will drop this off later.

Opel stands behind Cap and says well ya goin sit down to eat befer did gets cold?

Angel smiles you better sit Cap or you will wear it here join us.

Why thank you can not stay long the boys are waiting for me we have a big day ahead.

Angel crocks an eyebrow and looks at Cap then at Melody who is blushing  aha she thinks playing it coy is he lol

Angel lets it slide for now  but she did notice they both had blueberry pancakes and extra crispy bacon hum she thinks I give her a look like hush woman.

Opel  comes with more tea I cover my cup not for me Opel I am stuffed and have to run.

Opel laughs sure Cap you full on 4 pancakes and 6 stripes? who ya kidin

I have to watch what I eat have to keep in fighting shape lol

That brought on huge belly laughs even from Miss Katt standing in the kitchen door.

Okay enough jibber jabbing I have to go and Angel great article you must have been up late to catch the morning edition.

I got out of there as fast as I could before Angel started anything  I know her so well and I know she is up to no good .

I hear the women talking as I leave better not to know lol

I call out hey Charlie missed you at breakfast  so I came here.

What you want you ole coot I am busy .

Well good morning to you to you ole grouch LOL

I feel Doggie nudge me looking for the applw I have in my pocket for him.

I give him his apple and his snuggles and say Charlie I can never thank you enough for saving this lill guy and for all you do for all the animals.

The boys do a good job I ask ya they did now scoot I got work to do.

Before I go when do you want me to get The Blacksmith over ? He will be doing all the farm animals and  ours oh I need  a few of your best today making Opel a new Ice House the one she has now is to small and all that extra meat we got from The Spring Storm  so could you bring them to the foot of  the mountain,,,second thought  get them ready and we will come get them.

I got back and get the boys okay ready?

Charlies worker Gnomes had dropped off 4  slay backs these ones had wheels and they where padded on the inside as to not hurt the horses sides/

Hoss said man I have not seen one of these in a long time and the wheels Cap great idea make it easier on the horses

What do we need 4 for Cap?

Well boys we are going to build Opel a new Ice House the old one is getting to small.

The Gnomes also found us the sheet metal we need for the walls floor and roof  so lets get at it.

I stopped dead in my tracks when we reached the back of The Tea Room and saw the Gnomes  had just finished the foundation and the last wall was going up.

The head Gnome said here you go Cap we leave you to fill the walls with ice and put the roof on so all you need to do is raise it to refill the ice and the door  way is close to the kitchen so Opel need not walk far/

I was stunned how in the world did you know?

He laughed  we are Gnomes /

I handed him my bag of gold coins and hoped it was enough... He looked at me with a twinkle in his eye more then enough Cap Randy  we are here for each other now I bid you a good day,

I told the boys I would  be right back and I went to see Charlie.

I reached the en closer and saw her hard at work as usual 

Hey there Charlie  humph was my greeting lol

What do you want now ? you blind or something you can;t see I am busy?

Well good morning to you to ya ole grouch

Just then Doggie nudged me for his apple  lol well at least someone greets me here you go my good boy.

I lay the package down so Charlie can not miss it and I see her hawk eye me .

You know I can never thank you enough for what you do here and how you love and care for all the animals and more so this lill guy as I rubbed Doggie's ears you saved his life and many more.\You can stop buttering me up ya ole coot what do you want?

Well Opel is running out of space to frezze the meat snd with all the extra we got in the Spring Storm I need to build her a bigger one.

And she says I got what to do with it you want me to build it??

OH HELL NO I laughed but I do need 4 of your best working horses  can you pick out four?

Ya and you better treat them right or else I will have your hide.

I did not even see Charlie's worker Gnomes as they walked away??? something I said lol

Chalie return for 4 huge workers and I explain how I would use the strip back s with wheels to make it easier on them.

Oh don't worry I will look them all over when you are done .

Charlie please I said they will be well treated and have plenty of fresh cool water seeing we will be right by the run off stream from the mountain.

I took the horses and left and leaving the package right where she could not miss it ,,, in it was 4 new work shirts  because her old ones are so thin and ripping that her elbows pop through ...I hope they fit seeing I do not know her size so left that up to Kailey 

I went to get the boys and we headed off to get the blocks of ice from the mountain we had a perfect place to get our ice and it was not far,,,,

I took the horses and Brute and  Butch with me leaving Hans and Hoss to start the foundation I had laird out earlier like 4 am lol

It was to be 50 foot by 50 foot by 8 deep plenty of room to hang the meat and shelves for cold storage.

To make it fair on the boys we would switch two to dig two for ice etc.

We started back with the blocks of ice and I have to say the strip backs worked great.

We rounded the trees and I stopped dead in my tracks ,,,,, the foundation walls ceiling was  done ??????????????

We heard laughing and went to the front of the Ic house and found Charlie's Gnomes and my two boys talking.What the hell?????????????????

How did you know ?? and where did you find what was needed??

Relaxe Cap I overheard you and Charlie and we all said lets do this for Opel and  our extended family.

I was speechless and handed him my sack of gold coins and said I hope it is enough,,, more than enough Cap because you feed us when we need it help us when we need you and we will using it as well so  done deal as we shook on it/

The boys and I had the walls filled with ice blocks in no time all that was left to do was  close the roof parts that were made with hinges** made from wood *** to give us access to refill ice as needed.

It was perfect as now Opel and Miss Katt could go it with out having to out side so it was a fridge/freezer combo one step to the fridge part three down to the freezer .

Okay boys I will take the horses back and you can get Opel to show you were she wants things but wait for me I want to see her and Miss Katts face.

It was getting late so I thought Ope[ and Miss Katt will be busy getting dinner ready and as I pass the front of The Tea House my belly let out a huge rumble lol it has been empty since 5 am .

Here you go Charlie want me to help you brush them down???

What my arms broken???? get out of here ,,, ok ok see you at dinner,,,, I noticed she had not touched the package.

As I left to shower and change I said hey you have a package here and I walked out.
