The Mega Challenge as
The Ongoing Adventures of Agent 012
Agent 012 had found the Mercedes of Mellifluous Vandersnot just outside of Drummsy. But the girl, now calling herself Blue Violet, and her friend Tora Tora were no where to be seen. The car was locked up tight . Agent 012 brought out his electronic key simulator console
and set it to find the right code and open the door. It set off the car alarm and then after a minute or so the trunk lid flew up. Before he could look in the trunk it closed and the alarm stopped. Then a strange sequence began the alarm would resume
and then the trunk would fly open again only to close
with the alarm stopping. Agent 012 began to think that his key simulator which was a Polish import
was not going to be the answer. The system on the Mercedes was just too complex.
So he took his car jack and the next time the trunk opened he jammed in the jack so it couldn’t close. There was smoke and odd noises and suddenly the car doors flew open. Agent 012 looked in the trunk and found a strange bunch of items. There was a dead bass,
and arrow, a broken bass fiddle, a plastic sow
, a pussy
looking bandage, a bottle of furniture polish
, a stuffed pussy
cat, a very small doll house
., and a shirt that had been patched by a very poor sewer
. None of this made any sense to him. Why would anybody house
all these items in the trunk of a car?
He called the Agency and got Tod Watkins the new intern,
as yet unnumbered . Then he described the items to Tom and asked for some ideas. Tom suggested that they sounded like items from a scavenger hunt. Agent 012 told him not to talk foolishness when the lives
of two young people were at stake.
AS he hung up Agent 012 wondered how an intern that had such an impressive resume
could come up with such stupid answers. Lacking any constructive Agency help, and being sure the items were of no import, Agent 012 decided to go over the rest of the car looking for any minute
detail that could help him find the couple. But the search yielded nothing. Finishing his examination of the car he tried valiantly to lock it up but couldn’t. An old saying kept coming to his mind “ What you sow
you shall also reap.” It was, of course, his fault that the doors wouldn’t lock . On his last try the front door swung open hitting him, as he was standing too close
, and knocking him down an embankment into a creek. The creek smelled like it was the discharge of some sewer
system and Agent 012 now smelled the same.
This was not turning out to be his day.
The ten word challenge-Poor Pussy Cat
The bedraggled pussy
lived in an apartment complex
in Mudville but she was a long way from home. She had jumped up into that truck to get the dead bass
that was lying there just as the truck left for the country. The truck belonged to a Polish
worker on the Janson farm complex
and that fish was supposed to be his supper. He was not at all happy to find a cat eating it and threatened to take all nine of her lives
. In fact she lives only because she leaped from the truck and ran to the barn which was close.
He chased after her but then decided to just close
the barn door and resume
chasing her later . He was already late for his next task which was to sow
some seed in the upper forty. After that he had to feed the owner’s prize sow
. The poor cat knocked a bottle of furniture polish
off the top of an old console
on its way to what seemed to be a minute
hole in the barn wall. It squeezed through the hole and headed down the road to Mudville If she got home she knew her owner would take her up in his arms and console
her. But now she had to get home. And minute
by minute she did.
The mini challenge-Dr. House
the in house surgeon was asked to house
the new intern
at his house. He responded by telling them they would have to intern
the intern somewhere else as he was interning nobody at his house. It seems his sewer
had backed up and even his renter who was a sewer
by trade had left because of the odor. The committee felt the odor would be of no import
because they could import
some crystal substance that would absorb it. So Dr. House agreed and if he wasn’t so bow
legged he would have taken a bow
All fifteen words in one sentence -Sow Saving
The Veterinary Intern
, Bass House
, at the last minute
wanted to close
his bow import
business and resume
the use of his electric console
in the complex
treatment of the pussy, sewer
smelling, growth on the back of the Polish sow
thus saving the lives
that would be lost if the disease spread.
Of course the dragons were busy today you can see them HERE.
News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal
It’s Saturday and time to look back at the week in Pigeon Falls
Monday– Jon Bergalls prize sow got lose because his son failed to close the gate on the pigpen. While Donna tried to console the daughter and assure her that the pig lives Jon went looking for the animal knowing that every minute counted. He found it in the far pasture snuggling up to a Moose.
Wednesday– Tommy UK and Tammy thought they could just resume life as usual. But things turned out to be very complex and that was not a possibility. Some people thought they were aliens pretending to be them. So Tammy came right back to her house from school and played with the pussy cat. It knew who she was.
Thursday –The town has a new intern in the Public Works Department whose responsibility is the sewer system. He thinks they need to import a new console to control the process. In the light of his impressive resume the council may go along with him.
Friday-Geogof Anderson ordered some new polish for his bass fiddle bow. It was supposed to enhance the music played with the bow. Geogof , however, thinks it has had no import at all.
This was supposed to be a day spent with my grandsons. It started out okay except it was a really hard breathing day. We went out to lunch and I became ill so we dropped the family at the next place they were going and Penny brought me home. I spent the rest of the day either in bed or in the bathroom. I feel a bit better now. It is both hot and muggy . Now I need a breathing treatment.*********************************
