Attack on the fortress

Saying for the day: Sometimes the best defense is the best defense.

The other day I discovered that the evil Mr. Fabulous was considering attacking the Fortress as part of his vile plan to take over Cissa's blog and then the world.

I immediately called in all the serfs from the fields.
Then I discovered that I had neither serfs nor fields.
The old Fortress has come on hard times.

So I pulled up the drawbridge and hoped the water would protect us.

Then I added another layer of marshmallows to the fortress walls and checked out the weapons. Our chocolate syrup gun was a bit sticky .
I knew I shouldn't have tried to get by with that cheap chocolate syrup but it seemed like such a bargain at the time.
All the vats of goodness were full and ready to pour on anyone trying to climb the fortress walls.
There were no Popsicle's for the Popsicle guns as my grandchildren had eaten them all but I suppose we could use them to shoot tootsie pops.

I contacted the President but he said if Fabs wasn't an arab there was nothing he or homeland security could do to defend me.Besides its unAmerican to help Americans.

I sent out help notices to all my allies but only the French responded.
They can't come but wished me luck.

Now it looks like the danger has passed.
Cissa is back and has everything under control.

I will sleep easier tonight.

News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my backyard where old ladies carry shotguns-The White Rabbit hasn’t been seen since Mrs. Tumble says she sent him back to Hades . People are hoping she is wrong and that he will soon return .
The first of the sweaters showed up today at Wink’s Woods. They had “Trumble our Buffy” on the front and “Tumble the Demon Slayer” on the back. They seem to be selling well. Wink’s also has cotton stuffing they are selling as pieces of the stuffed rabbit that Mrs. Trumble blew apart. It just seems there is more stuffing than there was rabbit.
Mrs. Trumble’s story gets better every time she tells it. Now she says she faced this horrible demon whose long fangs were covered with droll and who had extended his claws to their full twelve inches. She , according to her version, was lucky to get the shot off before she was ripped apart.Nancy says that other than Tommy nobody seems to be speaking up publicly for the White Rabbit. Tommy is telling people they should take away Mrs. Trumble’s shotgun before she hurts somebody else.
A big moving truck came to town today and asked directions to the Chicago Hermit’s House. They then went there with a key and began loading everything in the house into the truck. A neighbor called Eino and Eino drove out to check on them. They had papers from the company that owned the house allowing them to remove the contents. Eino didn’t mention that he had the stone statue. He asked if there was a number where the company could be reached and they gave him a Chicago number. So now the house stands empty.

Today's link: The Rants and Raves of a Monster- she's not really a monster- Remember to leave the words Dr.John in the comments to get those monsterous JCPOINTS. Check HERE for your totals.
Yesterday we had four names Laurie, Andrena, Kristen, and Catch. If one of those is drawn today they get what's in the PRIZE BOX. Good luck to you all.
We will draw when Betty is ready.

I cut in the slips for today and shook up the basket. My grandson caleb did the drawing and the name drfawn is

Jafabrit who I think is visiting in England. Sorry folks ( Sorry Bree) I am beginning to despair over ever giving away the box. Well if its not gone by Wednesday I will draw five names on Thursday. Sooner or later somebody has to win.
Another good day. had a chance to spend some time with the son and grandsons before they had to leave at noon. Betty decided we should postpone the anniversaty dinner until tomorrow or Sunday. She wanted to clean up after the grandkids since we have someone coming to look at the house tomorrow. Well I need a breathing treatent.

" When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. —Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain [George III] is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."

I bit longer this time.

i can't imagine why Canada didn't come to your time of need. i can assure you that we will send in peace keepers as needed though ;).
i don't agree with Mrs. Trumble..she seems to be a bit of a nut..more voices need to speak up for the rabbit..he bought in tourisms and sold articles of clothing and kept the interest on the town. glad that the company doesn't know about the hermit's statue. i betcha that phone number is not a real one.
i hope you are enjoying the family visit. i hope yesterday was a day of love and cherish memories that keep on going. i hope you are well. take care. read you tomorrow.

Dr. John -- don't you listen to commercials? Hershey's makes the very best chocolate. If you go with an inferior product, you have to expect inferior results.

Ok then here is one I made.

“Revenge is not completed at the death of an enemy. One should know his enemy from the inside and out, after death. One should sleep in the bed of an enemy, with his woman, to know his love. One should walk with the children of an enemy to know their play and trade, and eat of the best food of his garden and animals. One should wear the clothes of an enemy, where possible by size and quality. One should spend a year and a day as one with his enemy. When the victor has become the same as his enemy, burn his house and the houses of all that who know or have seen him. Burn and salt his land and the land that touches his by earth, water, or air. Finally one should take the works of the mind, or of love from this enemy; all fine crafts of the hand or pen, and burn it in a fire of the most pure wood. All gifts to his loved ones, all books and fine jewelry, all prized cattle and beloved dogs should be put to the flame. The ashes produced within should be scattered to the corners of the earth at a distance of one day by horse. The conqueror can now return home content that the only remains of this enemy are within, and he will be stronger for it.”
