Welcome to The Ark

And Beyond.


There have been requests for a new mission.
Here it is.
Enjoy!

I am about this close to clapping the girl in irons!

Wasn't bad enough I had to listen to the sound of spike heeled boots click-clack-click back and forth for hours as she paced around the bridge. She was in a bit of a miff, you see, that Pottery had forgotten who she was. But now I awaken with a pounding headache. She had used the Will-B-Wuz.

Okay, perhaps I'd better back up a bit. One of the side effects of trans dimensional wormhole travel is deja-vu and the feeling that you have already said things and done things that have yet to transpire. It takes a while to sort it all out.

So, as I was about to say, Some days or weeks ago, from the reader's perspective, although from mine, mere hours, (I haven't yet sorted out when I am) Lord Pottery requested a mission to discover the cause of some phantom WUmail that he had received, yet not gotten, leading to a serious case of consternation and befuddlement on his part. I immediately assigned Krissy (the grand-daughter of Ranger Rick) to the task of solving the mystery and attempting to recover said mail.

When I informed Pottery that she was making progress and the two of us were about to leave in the Captain's launch to follow up on a lead, he said "Who is Krissy?"

That's when the heel clicking started.

"Krissy, you have to remember that the last time Lord P. saw you was in Trinidad, after the wedding. He was quite, uhm, lets just say comfortably numb at the time. He probably doesn't remember half of the things that happened that evening..."

"That's no excuse!" click-clack-click.

And so forth and so on until I finally gave up and headed off to bed.
I've never seen her is such a state.

(Pottery, you owe me a very nice bottle of rum for this)

We were heading to a region of space called Beyond. It is called that because it is beyond the area explored and patrolled by the Grays. Little is known about it and it is frequented by pirates and all manner of unsavory characters.

I awoke with a start and a pounding head because someone was in a hurry. The Captains launch lack the sophisticated inertial dampening system of The Ark, and therefore can't accelerate at much over 3 Gs for sustained periods under the gravity drive without getting quite uncomfortable. The mechanism is just too large to fit is the smaller craft. However, the last time that Earl stopped by, Krissy traded him a pallet of his favorite tea for a Will-B-Wuz.

(I don't want to digress too much here, I'll speak more on the Grays later)

Anyway, I stumbled onto the bridge grasping my aching head in both hands and inquired (expletives deleted) as to exactly what the heck was going on.

"We're here, but it isn't!"

"Where, and what isn't?" I inquired, the pain starting to subside.

"Well, Captain, we are precisely where Boldlygo is supposed to be, but it's not here!" I could tell by her demeanor that she was slightly embarrassed at having lost an entire planet.

"Well, what is here?"

"There is a lot of what looks to be unmatched socks, some pocket fluff, and...what is that? a wad of paper?"

"Get it aboard and lets have a look."

Cutting to the chase, it was a sheet from a yellow legal pad, or at least part of one, The lower right half seemed to have been cut off. It read:

Help! Portable Ho...
The rest was missing.

Yeah, she probably won't go for that.

Better start a new blog!

As much fun as this one was, it's time for something different.

ROFL, had to look up MCO.
"Mickeys Corporate Office".
Never knew that Orlando International Airport
was once McCoy AFB.

Looks like you guys are still getting rain down there.
Nothing here at all, everything keeps going just west of us headed south.

Saw Dr. Frankenstein 2 today, did a sonagram on the right leg.
Good news is bad vein is totally closed now.
Did that bozo think I was going to let him try again if it wasn't?

That would be a cold day in Hell. :)

Camo tatoo is still getting bigger and spreading around the thigh.

Will be hard to explain that puppy when I'm wearing a pair of shorts.

The little Hulk thinks its cool though!

He said "WOW Grandpa, that's a Boo Boo". :)

Good Monday Morning.
Adjusting bearing and trying to set the course for the day.

(grumble, grumble)
:o)

ditto ditto to the grumble grumble.....

Managed to get (after going to 3 hardware shops!) some sanding belts (3" x 21") and bought 24, so that I would have some for a while.
But the #%@^*&@# things are coming apart after a couple minutes, at the join.
Got through 16 of them to sand 2 small doors......

This is one of the biggest problems with "Free Trade", where anyone can become an importer, and the result is real bad quality (CHEAP STUFF) flooding the market.

So, grumble grumble grumble.

Had a good soaking here as well right around sunset.
As of 0900:

Partly Cloudy
70F
Humidity 94%
Barometer 30.09 in
Dewpoint 68F (20C)
Visibility 10.00 mi
Winds calm, increasing to 5 or 10 mph later.

Doesn't feel like 70. Air needs wringing out.
70% thunderstorms later today.

No circles to report.

Glad the old bud's missus is doing well Goofy!

Nice run of lightning and thunder for almost two hours with a 1.3 in rainfall in the cup. Still waiting for new puter while phone takes a pull. Doubt you can get RTL to touch an " old fashion " with a ten foot Lech Walessa. Old bud notes the Missus had knee job on the 5th and taking stairs by Fri with in-home rehab. She weighs about. 110 so you can't compare. That's third opp from this place where outcome was good

Bah and Humbug !

Not only is it Monday morning, but they are picking on me and calling me 'old fashioned' and other derogatory names.....

Don't know what I've done to deserve this Dreadful Treatment.
Maybe I'll mix myself a screwdriver for breakfast.
That will probably get me started off on the wrong foot......

The Good News is that it's a bright and sparkly day.
The Bad News is that I have a squillion things to do. Starting with a trip to the Hardware for sanding belts. Which means that there is dust in my day.......

Oh well, I am sure my Rewards will be many and pleasurable.

Nasty T'storms on Mt Holly radar this way coming but two hours away and lots of dry ground to pass over. Funny last week they did the normal routine of disappearing but transferred energy from the the water and mushroomed twenty miles west of the coast.

But in retrospect, maybe it's a good thing they didn't, and that it rolled harmlessly down the sewer....


Had another great day, filled with Excesses.
Exhausting come to mind.
And tomorrow looms like a Monday, with a list of stuff that goes on for decades.
So right now I'm going to lockdown this house, send The Ladies to bed, and hope that one of them ends up next to me.....

Y'all have fun, and watch out for Pork Bellies and other Commodities.

Set the pillow on fire in a little ear shape burn.
Luckily I had a large cup full of Pepsi on the nightstand.
Will blame it on you guys if SugarBear sees the burned pillow case.

So what's up your end?

Jelly fish, crooked nannys, and sand fleas.
Sounds dread I must say!

Hey, am I starting to talk like Pottery?
I was talking like Orca the other day, eh?

I think I need another Pepsi. :)

They tell me that they also protect you from jellyfish stings.

Indeed!
4 legs, I can deal with. Snake with 3 legs is just a little over the top so to speak.
A tri-ped Snake, in panty hose, and bandages...

No. This is too much.

Speaking of silly customs stuff and pantyhose.

Way back before all the current TSA nonsense began, I flew to Jamaica for a little R&R. Boarding the plane on the return flight, I was done with inspection of my carry on stuff when the woman noticed a pair of wings pinned to the strap of the bag. They were given to me by a pretty flight attendant from the inbound flight on the same airline as a memento. (and that's all I'm gonna say about that.) Well, I was admonished and the wings confiscated.

I suppose she thought that I would don pantyhose and a skirt and use the wings to take control of the aircraft.
