Agent 012-Christmas Special

Today's Link
From Ohio With Love

Saying for the Day
Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the mall of his choice. ~Author Unknown

The Ongoing Adventures of Agent 012
Poor Agent 012 lay on the floor in the backroom of the casino. The charley horse in his leg was getting worse and he could hardly stand the pain. He watched as the biggest of the thugs that hauled him in to the room took down a heavy wooden cane off the wall.
“ If you don’t tell us how you fixed that wheel I’m going to fix you so you won’t be able to walk for a month” the big guy said waving the cane in the air.
At that point Agent 012 thought “ enough is enough. I'm not going to end up in the hospital with Agent 010.” and pushed a button on his belt. A mask popped up covering his nose and mouth and from the back of his shoes a knockout gas poured into the room. The two big men slumped to the floor and Agent 012 grabbed the cane using it to get back on his feet and to help him walk out of the room. But first he reached into the bag that contained his winnings and took out $3000 in chips. “ They owe me that for all I’ve been through”,, he thought. They can keep the rest.
He hobbled straight from the room to the all you can eat buffet and got a big bowl of beef barley soup. As he ate he could feel the charley horse letting go and his leg returning to normal. Then he dropped the cane and cashed in the chips.
From the casino he hastened to “ Candles and More Candles” the Agency front in Las Vegas.
As soon as he was the only customer the usual dialogue was entered into.
“ Can I help you?”
“ I would like some pine candles , please.”
“ Do you want those in Norway or White?”
“ I’d rather have spruce”
“ Spruce is so ordinary why not try pine tar?”
“ Evil people should be tarred and feathered”
At that a secret door opened and Agent 012 entered the real Agency shop.
There he shared all that had happened and the fact that Mute probably wouldn’t be back. But they did now have a picture of him and every Agent would be watching for him. Agent 012’s job in Vegas was done,
Now he would do some Christmas shopping and then fly home for Christmas.
It was going to be a great day.
News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal.
Yesterday people started returning to Pigeon Falls and it began to feel like the Christmas season.
Homeland Security did its final investigation. They even checked the cows the two agents were found sitting on but found nothing. One of the men said that a video surveillance camera showed a dragon moving toward the shadow just before it vanished. The video was destroyed. Dragon fire was no more acceptable in a report than puzzle completing as a means of getting rid of the shadow. In the end they decided that they only thing that made sense is it was something they did. They will now spend months analyzing the data and trying to decide what it was they did. In any case they packed up and left.
Somebody said a good looking man dressed in black left on the same train. He was whistling.
Herman, the unofficial hero spent an hour last evening talking to Pastor Joan but nobody knows why.
Nancy’s poltergeist is now juggling Santa Clauses to the amusement of her coffee shop patrons. The old piano continues to play every morning at the museum but now it’s playing pieces from the Nutcracker. The shoes continue to dance. The dragons and the whale have been seen. The big manger scene glows brightly on the town square which doesn’t belong to and never has the town.
One could say that life is back to normal in Pigeon Falls.
Wrap Up
Today I visited all my links. My sister Dawn called to tell me my nephew got the Christmas gift I sent. I did some reading and Betty and I wrapped Christmas gifts. Then Betty and Pennie went shopping. The flowers I ordered for Betty that were supposed to come tomorrow came while they were gone. Doesn't anybody get anything right out there? Now I need a breathing treatment.

I am glad things are back to normal somewhat but I really want to know why Herman was talking to Pastor Joan...was it that he was questioning his faith maybe...and who was the good looking man dressed in black who left on the train?

Your stories keep me really captivated!

Yay! Agent 012 has triumphed, again, and Pigeon Falls is returning to normal, whatever that may be! All's right with the world.

Merry Christmas, Dr. John.

Dearest Dr. John and family,
here is an old friend wishing and old friend the warmest of wishes, mushy hugs(i know how much you love those) and cuddles, sticky candy cane kisses and carols singing over this beautiful holiday. May the Child Christ enjoy the warmth of your home and may He always have a place there.

We are very okay and i would love to tell you about it but somehow i am not to be blogging yet.

I had the most happiest bday and have enjoyed every day of the fall and now winter as i can't explained. It is as i am finally living and feeling as if i'm almost new inside. This advent season has been as it should be in all homes and my/our hearts are filled with joy and peace of the miracle that is Christmas.

as i wrote the heart never forgets and i have not forgotten you all for a day. i love you today even more than i loved you a year ago. i appreciate you all so very much and are thankful for all the hearts God has blessed me through my journey.

Blessed Christmas dear old friend to you and yours.
