I am sorry Hon. This on top of all your other troubles. You should be safe in those beautiful mountains.
Spring is supposed to harbor new strength.
What is the prognosis?
And how does this touch you?
If it was me I would be looking into an abyss and thinking " Jump" " Jump not"

When I was a silly youth, single minded, riding horses every day I would dream of waking up and the world was empty of humans who hurt me and suffering I couldn't handle and I would take my horse unbridled and ride into the empty world.
As I grew older I realized I wouldn't have any where to go so I chose the suffering the confusion.

Some times I wish there was a Utopia. Are we each others Utopia? When we in real and virtual life grant a smile and a hug?
Is Utopia when we stop confronting each other, but rather listening? It goes both ways, such a dichotomy. Who is listening? to listen is to act.

I'll try and add your name to the pic tomorrow, it's getting late here now and I need my beauty sleep

Please don't worry dear, get as much sleep as you possibly can.

Chrissy would probably let you sleep a week or so.
To tell you the truth I could use a month.

Absolutely excellent, please continue. Poor Troll or are we the poor ones?

Sorry I missed all you lovely people earlier!

Kat that dream was something! I'd love to meet Mr. Gordi and the Mrs. in real life. I'd be asking all kinds of questions just to hear their accents! I did that with Ozzy Osbourne many, many years ago.

Tom, OMG you are doing an amazing job with Troll! I'm so glad you took off with developing his character! I'll try to get some writing done tonight for the story.

Continued from page 363, Errellorre's last entry.

Pesky flew in the front of Troll's face and made him cross eyed as he tried to focus on the little pixie. "you over sized nasty beast, now look what you've done! Do you see? Do you even care? Look at this! There is no excuse for your overwhelming lack of manners and civility!" She then flew over to Errellorre still in a rage. "And you Sir, what the hell were you thinking to hook up with this creature? He's a troll! Do you not have eyes to see, ears to hear? He's crazy and so are you! You don't know our Aria yet you act as though you are long lost lovers or something. What is wrong with you?"

Night and Aria were still in shock looking at the disarray of fallen shelves, broken furniture and scattered books. The hooded men were devastated at the chaos and damage of their precious and priceless items. The eldest came forward. "We will not have an untamed creature in the secret library! We will feed him, but he will dine outside. There is no place for such a thing in the house of the Brothers. We are the guardians of all that exists in this domain." He sternly looked at Errollorre and pointed a boney finger at him. "You Sir, will dine with the Brothers and our guests but have a lot of explaining to do! Now come, follow me."

They all proceeded down a long hall with priceless works of art and tapestries adorning the cold stone walls and moonlight streaming in across the floor through the many stained glass windows. Soon they came upon the great dining hall. The décor and furnishings were stunning.

Aria,the winged elf brushed a strand of silken hair away from her lovely face and found herself staring at the handsome new comer. When he turned to look at her she quickly looked down. Night heaved a heavy sigh of disappointment. She still couldn't believe what she just witnessed from the other room. She was also very curious about the strange man. She sensed no evil, just a playful mischievousness and deep longing. Like Sky had told her, the man was searching for something. They would find out soon enough what he was up to. They were seated at the long table and were served the finest of brews and food fit for a King. In respect for the elves, the Brothers offered their finest elven wine. Night got drunk easily and started giggling for no reason at all.

Continued from page 348

Garren and the goblin slowly made their way through the dark, dank tunnel alert and ready for what may go bump in the night. The boy slipped, landed in a puddle of water and let out a yelp. Jojopo stared at the boy in disbelief. "Why don't you just announce to the evil that lurks about that we are here? Stupid human!" he whispered. Suddenly a number of dark things flew above and swooped down at the pair. "Ahhhhhh, I told you boy! I told you there were dark things here!" The goblin pulled out a knife waving it through the air. Garren batted the flying creatures away and suddenly burst out laughing as they ran further into the tunnel and around a corner into a tunnel that branched off from it. There was an opening high above them where they could see the stars glitter and the soft glow of the silver orb. The black winged creatures took to the sky and flew away.

Garren laughed so hard his stomach hurt. He had to sit down a moment and pull himself together. Jojopo was furious. "You find this a laughing matter do you? We could have been killed back there and you laugh? There is nothing amusing about this and if you don't get your wits about you, there will be no need to continue on. You'll be dead and you'll bring death to me as well!" It only made Garren laugh even harder. The goblin waved a hand. "Be gone with you small human. You're on your own from here. I want no part of you! You are a danger to my well being and Jojopo will have no part of it!"

Garren stood up, brushed himself off and ran to catch up to the goblin once he collected himself enough to speak. The goblin was still a bit ahead of the boy. Garren shouted. "They were bats you fool, simple bats! You know, those nocturnal creatures that fly in the night. Common bats!" Jojopo stopped in his tracks. "I...knew that. Yes, I knew that very well. You see, I wanted you to realize that had they have been one of the evil creatures..." He couldn't finish his sentence because he didn't know what to say in order to save face. Garren smirked." "I'm sorry I laughed at you. It was an honest mistake I'm sure." It took every ounce of his being not to burst out laughing again, but he remained silent as they moved ahead.

"Umm...Jojopo, where are we going anyway? I have friends that need me to help them find the secret library. They must be wandering around aimlessly out there and could be in great danger." This time it was the goblins turn to smirk. "They're already there and that's where we are headed." Garren was stunned. "What do you mean? How do you know?" They headed toward a winding stairway that led upward. "Questions, always questions with this one." the goblin replied aloud. "Sometimes there are no need for questions." The boy scratched his head. He found the goblin to be very strange, but he was growing rather fond of the cranky little guy. Jojopo looked back at the boy and sighed. "If things are working in your favor, why question it? Why do you need to know more?" Garren chuckled. "Because I'm a stupid human boy??"

Isn't it funny how our brain's can take everyday thought's and manipulate them into something so funny.

Then there is Warren Zevon.

Your dream sounds like so much fun!!! I think we all need to start migrating to you, it was a sign.

a reply to: Errollorre
I am LOVING your storyline!!!! You have made your characters come to life!!! And Troll is awesome!

a reply to: WalkInSilence
WIS you newest avatar is beautiful!!!!! She is perfect for you!!!! Thank you for your support. You have such a way with words. I think that The Shed is a Utopia. I can waltz in here and it is like the world’s problems aren’t allowed in. I love that! I find it so hard to explain to someone how a Shed full of people I have never met have become my strongest lifeline!!!!!

a reply to: Night Star
I love how you and Tom have pulled the story together, it is awesome!!! You guys are incredible!!!! I would love to write but there are too many other things floating in my head right now. So you met Ozzy? How cool!

a reply to: Gordi The Drummer
Gordi – So glad that you have FINALLY beat the man flu!!! So sideburns was a mistake…hmmmmm. So what season is it over there? Are we on opposites? We are just hitting early spring (mostly end of winter)LOL

Are you getting excited for your new job? I have been at the same place for 17 years (took a new position 3 yrs ago) so starting some place new would scare me to death. OMG I LOVE Zevon

Morning Martin,


Come on up! With Climate Change progressing, I figure within 10 years some folks living on the Coastlines of the United States will be migrating up this way.

I am getting excited. And I have been trying to get as much stuff done now so as not to wear myself down for the first couple weeks.
Today, I am going to get all my supplies to start my garden indoors. I know it's early, (at least for us up here) but I am afraid if I don't start now, I may be too overwhelmed.

How are you holding up. Good grief girlfriend, you really have alot on your plate.

Oh Yea Warren Zevon!

“Luke, I am your father.”

I think most everyone remembers this line from Star Wars.
I said this same thing to Night Star a few weeks back in a U2U when I told her something about myself and how it related to my story, and how it is that I came to know about everyone here at the Shed even before I joined.

I began reading the posts in the Shed and other things on ATS a couple of years ago because of my wife.
She is a member here and would show me things that were being written.
This is why when I joined I said I felt like I already knew everyone.
We thought it might be fun to have me join the Shed (which I wanted to do anyway.
) and write a story.
We thought it might be a fun surprise (and make the story interesting) to reveal who I was by what my character did.
Anyway at this point (If you’ve read my stories.) you might have already guessed who I am.
Or you might have thought I was just taking liberties and imposing myself on other people's characters in the story . LOL
Well I have permission for everything I’ve written.

Now in my story I’ve revealed that the lost love that my character Errollorre is searching for, is the ghost Elf, “Aria”.
Well in real life “Aria” who is a character created by Shed member “Bug Whisperer” IS my wife.
Bug Whisperer (Gail) and I (Tom) are married.

I’ve been reading all the posts to her since she has not felt well enough to keep up on her own.
She does miss being an active participant in The Shed and hopes to be back regularly soon.
Since I've joined we have been able to enjoy this world together.
She doesn't always know what I’m going to write (Like this post) and is often hears it for the first time after I post it here on ATS.
So don’t hold her responsible for anything I write. LOL
But so far it’s been a lot of fun. And I hope to continue having fun with you all here for as long as you can stand me.

Gail (Bug Whisperer) sends you her love and misses you.
And I thank you for letting me be a part of your world.

What a wonderful story. Isn't it funny how life takes us down a path and we find our selves in the strangest places.

Thank you for sharing that Tom.

So Bug is the one who puts up with you. LOL!!!

Thank you for coming into our lives. I always smile when I see you have posted, and look forward to a good giggle.

Bug (Gail) is very lucky to have you by her side. It come's across in your writing, that you are a very gentle and caring person.

My prayers are with you both.

Tom! I was thinking this is where you might be leading us. I LOVE IT!!!! And I love that you have come along to join our Shed Family. You and Gail are such amazing people!!! You both have such a soft spoken way of sharing your joys. Thank you so much for joining us and reading to Gail. Reading your story made my eyes tear up. It is so sweet that you joined to read to her!!! You are all so blessed to have you both join us!!!!!! Can't wait to read more......

Kat - I was raised on Warren Zevon. I can remember being small and listening to my dad play it on his electric guitar. Paul hates it when I get into one of my moods because Zevon is NOT his favorite. LOL

Same season here Jessie - we're "Northern Hemisphere" - so early Spring.
It's been really nice so far, lots of crisp fresh cool mornings with plenty of clear skies and sunshine.
(That doesn't happen too often here, so I'm trying to enjoy it while I can!)

The Man-Flu is on the run. Still got a wee sore throat and slight cough, but overall MUCH better!

You guys crack me up! I come in here and you are all being witty and having fun. That's what I love to see! It never fails to amaze me to see such an outpouring of love from everyone in this wonderful little community of ours. I am forever grateful for each and every one of you who has made this place what it is, a place of wonder and magic, of laughter and love.

Tom, I remember your PM with the 'Luke I am your father' title. It cracked me up and then I was wide eyed with surprise and delight over the revealing of your being Bug's husband. I was bursting at the seams wanting everyone to know! Let her know she is loved and we can't wait until she returns back 'home' to us.

Hope everyone is having a great day!
