So sorry to hear that Jane.
There is obviously nothing practical that I can do to help, given the circumstances but you know how to get hold of me if you need to let off some steam or have a wee rant! I've got broad shoulders and a good ear.
The other ones rubbish though, best to stay on this side, yeah.

Night Star was still trying to stifle a laugh from the incident with Gordi, when she heard music from the outside. "That's gotta be True and I have to check that out!!!!". But before she stepped out of the door, Homer came flying in and yelled excitedly for Dawg to come see something. She followed them without their knowing crunching leafs and twigs beneath her feet as she ran. When she arrived at the sacred church, she saw Dawg with the dragon statue and asked him kindly to please return it to its place on the alter.

"It is an ancient and powerful artifact of the elves of Green Forest Place. There is much we are yet to discover from ancient scrolls and tomes." They all looked at her with wide eyes. "I have been its guardian for many years and when I found this sacred place I thought it fitting to place it here in this realm." This place is usually guarded and I am concerned of the gaurdians whereabouts."

That is arse of the first and most high order, that I have ever heard of. I am truly sorry that you are going through that right now. There are no words to express my sympathies, except to say that you know where my inbox is if you want to expel some toxic thoughts.

I hope that the situations resolution comes about with all due speed and satisfaction from your perspective. Also, your sister... Well, I am going to say, I am glad I have met you, and not your sister. If I was one of tour ancestors, I know which descendant I would be the most proud of, and that would be you my dear.

*HUGS!*

Sorry to distract...it's a comedy of errors in my neck of the woods.

We have some serious storms passing through and they are awesome, But the weather guy was just lifting the tornado warning when in the background I hear a alarm go off. We have a tornado on the ground in between me and the town next door. Luckily, it's mostly farmland and I truly hope that no one is harmed by it.

But I have to admit, watching the weatherguy freak out is truly amusing.


It's a fascinating storm though. I am in awe at the moment.

You may get your wish. The storm seems to gaining strength to a degree. Three touchdowns so far. I watched a lot of rotation pass over me while giving live updates. (Kinda exciting)

So far though, no reports of damage. Keep the thumbs crossed.

Dude, first and foremost, I hope to see you posting tomorrow. Anything better than survival on your part is a bonus. Just make sure you nail that bit! I hope you get all that you wish for out of your proximity to the maelstrom, and I hope to discuss it with you tomorrow. For now though, I must go to bed.

Dawg... I WILL see you tomorrow!

@everyone else.... Rock on!

As Homer and Dawg placed the artifact on the Altar as Night asked, The talisman started to glow with a bluish white light. The three felt a hum before they heard it emanating from the artifact, and they all started to step away backwards. The air shimmered around the artifact, faintly charging the air around the explorers. A loud CRACK was heard, and they all jumped back and turned go flee the ruined sanctuary, when the floor gave way and they all dropped down, their terrified screams were momentarily heard as the floor closed over them as they fell.

ETA: Sorry, I aint letting this story go, we all have WAY TOO MUCH invested into this!!

As Tdawg picked himself up off the ground in the the dank under regions, he dusted himself off (after checking himself for injuries of course) and looked at Homer. "You know you screamed like a girl, right?"

"I didn't scream like a girl you did!", Homer retorted, "I heard it."

"Whatever, at least Syx can fly off for help, or if he has any class, find some rope. I'm not fond of the idea of being the brunt of jokes. That's other's jobs. And it all happens to me all to often. Now let's find a way outta here."

Homer chuckled, "You know you are a idiot, right?"

Tdawg spun around and put his hands on his hips. "But I'm a Professional!"

NEXT! *FlitPoof!*

Well, I'm home and hunkered down. It;s going to be a looooong three days according to the weather folks. But most of the serious stuff is south of me now. I hope that folks in PA and points east are prepared and listening. You hear that Night?

Should be interesting. Good luck to everybody!

I have never in my life seen a tornado and I don't want to start seeing them now.
Glad you are safe Dawg!

Loving all the new entries to the story!!!!

Damned ex had a flat tire yesterday. He isn't doing anything to fix the damned thing and I have a doctor's appointment Friday.


Jane, I can't get over how your sister would dishonor your Mother's wishes like that.
Cody, hope you and Mrs. C are ok.

Anyone knows that they can contact me at anytime for anything. My door is always open and the lights are always on.

Good morning all


Thanks for all the support
My shedily never fail to amaze me.

I take full responsibility for being an absolute bloody moron.

Mrs C being the angel she is has returned to cuddle monster mode, we had a real good heart to heart, and she understands why I went radio rental on her. Even said if reversed she'd have done the same

All for the sake of one misheard word.

So all is well in Codyland and I've had a timely reminder that I am not infallible.

Sis is back home again


Gbro I just got your text, many thanks


Gotta run need to fill up the motor.

Have a great day one and all, I love you all, hugs all round (Yes Dawg even you
)

Cody

Syx was ready to take Flight when he noticed a Humming sound followed by a LOUD CRASH!!!!
Then He heard 2 women scream and a man holler! (2 women??? NightStar was the only one I thought???!!!)
He banged his shoulder on the way back running through the door tearing his old leather jacket. "Damnit!! I'll be a Som B..., And a Bleeding Cut! Never fails! Man I am clumbsy at times!"
Getting closer to the alter He sees the floor is clean in an area that was filthy only a moment ago.
Muffled cries and arguing could be heard below the floor!
"Hey!!! We hear you up there!! Get us outta here!!!" one of the Guys yelled.
"What The Hell Happened?!?! AnyOne Hurt?!"
"The floor opened up, but Nevermind that, Grab a rope Syx before Homer Lady Screams again!!" TDawg Yelled.
"I Told Ya Dawg that I didn't scream like a Girl!!!" was Homers plead for understanding.
Syx could hear NightStar laughing out loud below, so started grinning to himself. "Man those people sure can get into the strangest predicaments!!"
"Be right Back!"
TDawg Yelled, "Don't fool around Syx, I want outta this damn hole afore anyone else sees that we been Pranked!"

A few minutes later Syx arrives with a rope and opened the floor.

Upon opening the floor and seeing the three below, He laughed out loud! "You guys oughtta see yerselves! This is priceless! Looks like ya got half the dirt in this place all over yourselves! LMAO!!!"

"Very Funny Syx, now please drop the rope?" was the grinning NightStar's reply.

"OK Night, here ya go......"
While NightStar was working Her way up the rope Syx asks," Hey, can ya tell me who was the girlie screamer, besides yerself?"

Homer Yells, "Dangit You guys, I tell Ya it wasn't me screamin like a girl!!!"

Laughter filled the Sanctuary!!!!!!

Cody,

Glad to hear that things have been defused and that you have worked things out with your missus. There are very few things indeed which can irk one as severely as sundering ones relationships unwisely, but to do so based on an error is perhaps worse.

Glad also to hear that your sister has returned home. I hope that things in that regard continue to improve!

a reply to: Night Star

Hello Night Star!

I hope that this day finds you in fine spirits!


I had a deeply aggravating beginning to my working day, I must confess. Having set up the shop for the day, I made myself a cup of tea, rolled a cigarette, and stepped outside in order to sample the morning air and rest against the door frame, as is my habit when there are no customers about, and the street is empty. From my position in front of our store, I saw that one of the planters (big wooden tubs with soil and plants in them) had been deprived of a small Buxus bush, which had been its central feature, and is the central feature of several other tubs of the same description, up and down the street.

The soil had been strewn about the immediate area during the theft, and lay scattered around the edge of the planter, and on the ground next to the tub. This would be the second time that someone has thieved Buxus plants from the planters on the street, and it is bloody annoying. For one thing, me and my mother are the people who wander up and down the street in summer, watering the plants so that they do not dehydrate and die. We are the ones who go around digging the soil over, trimming, pruning, and removing litter from the planters, to ensure that the plants continue to live, and to make sure that they look as nice as possible.

You see, these planters are not council property. They were purchased by the community and traders association. Now, me and my mother, we are not acting officials of that organisation, but we know that the planters were put in place by that group, to promote the street, to make the boring and ugly 1960s architecture just a little more appealing, by introducing some colour, some greenery, anything to take ones eye away from the eyesore that the buildings on our street represent.

These plants, and the planters themselves, were purchased by the traders association, which is a registered charity, and the funds used to purchase them were gained by way of donations over a considerable time, by local people. Every store on this street has a charity box for the association, and when people simply say "keep the change" the few pence they throw away, go in the pot. Those are the sort of donations which went into purchasing these items, that is the thought that went into it.

What makes me angry is, that it is rare enough that someone wants to actually do something for their community, and has the chance to do it. That some selfish bastard has either stolen the plants for their own gain, or just to be an absolute douche canoe, means that everyone else, everyone involved with the effort to bring this place up a notch, to improve the way people feel about their local area, gets to spend at least one more morning feeling like they are wasting their time, that they are so thoroughly outnumbered by bastards that the effort is being spent into a total vacuum.

I have reported to the police, the theft of this plant, and I will have to track down the current chairperson of the committee today as well, in order to report to them and provide them with the incident number. The thing that really aggravates me? The thing that makes me want to smash somethings skull asunder with a lump hammer? The plant they stole, was the plucky one that came to the street all bent over and sad looking, and straightened up and started to have the most vibrant leaves of any of the plants on the street! Bracketed on all sides by colourful flowers, it really helped liven up the end of the street where it used to reside. Now, its either in some bastards garden, or has been hurled into a ditch somewhere by a hoodlum.

Dont get me wrong, I know there are much bigger things afoot, much worse things happening all over the planet, than the theft of some purely ornamental plants. People are dying, hurting, and others are killing and oppressing, and sometimes it is the planet itself that tries to kill people. Those things suck, and I do not like them one bit! But this is on my doorstep, and its a project that I have been involved in, because I thought it was worthwhile, and would be good for my fellow man. I do not spend my time unwisely if I can help it, and crap like this makes me think I have wasted it. Thats all.

Meh. Sorry to be a bummer over something so totally trivial.
