Greetings and Felicitations!

Having recently arrived in the area, my companion Ms Steele and I find that our baggage has been misplaced. Needless to say, that means that we are left with little in the way of proper attire for public appearances and so it may be some time before we can appear in person to meet our new friends and neighbors face to face. Rest assured that we are diligently working to correct this dismal situation.

 

In the mean time know that Ms Steele and I are excited at the prospect of…

Oh what gems I found at Borders today...

I actually went to two in the area...one in Springfield,VA and one in Baileys Crossroads,VA.

 

I was pleasantly surprised with everything I found.

 

Sadly,my phone is of horrible quality.

 

I purchased two copies of the Return of the Dapper Men.,"It is a tale of a world without time or progress, inhabited…

The Adventure Ends! The 13th of November, concluded...

    The hideous spider-like creature advanced menacingly towards us. "Kill them! Kill them!" shouted Professor Clasius then continued reciting the incantation that had materialized the evil thing into our presence from some other, darker dimension.

"Can you not stop her Johannes?" shouted Winslow frantically.

 

    I had but one avenue of hope left to us, but first I must silence the Professor and break her hold on the creature she now controlled. I focused my attention…

A Demon Of Darkness Attacks! The 13th of November, continued...

   The great flash of light and smoke succeeded in distracting Professor Clasius and breaking her concentration. In fact, my aim was so precise in nature that I succeeded in singing the dreadful woman's hair. She let out a howl of great surprise! "Damn you Leopold! " she shouted as she madly patted her hair to put out the burning embers. The great serpent which encircled us with it's massive coils dissolved away into nothingness. "Good show old man!" said Winslow patting me on the…

I did it! New sewing amchine.

I did it! I did it! I did it!!!!!

I found and bought a vintage (antique) Singer Sphinx Treadle Sewing machine at a garage sale for a song. Got it home and a few hours late couldn't help myself a sat down to start cleaning it up.

The find had been stored in an old barn like garage for years. It was covers in layers upon layers of grim and built up dust and Texas dirt. So poorly was this machine treated that the gears and works would not move for the grim when I bought…

A Duel Of Magic! The 13th of November, continued...

    Greenfield lay on the stony ground bleeding from his shoulder. I knelled down and helped Winslow to aid my fallen comrade. "Bernard, help Thomas into the circle." I whispered.

"Oh Johannes, I don't think now is the time for such..." started Winslow.

"Do as I say!" I snapped "Our lives depend on being in that circle!" As I stood to confront the approaching Professor I said dryly "Your aim is as poor as your character my dear Profesor."

"At this distance it shall be…

Entry 1

This is the first documented entry of my exploits. My name is K. E. Penn, better known as Lady Strange. I've begun my journey the day my desire to learn more led me astray. I had discovered a rather interesting story about an uncharted area of the skies and discovered the legends about a floating island there within.

 

The curious soul that I am, it didn't take me long to charter a boat from a group I must admit did come off as rather unsavory. Had I known at the time who they…

Lady Gwendolyn Chapter 2

Ahh my childhood the first 10 years. As I mentioned I had four siblings and our life was initially filled with hard work but many joys living in the vast wilderness. Hard work never fazed me it was in my blood you could say. Both my parents worked from daylight to sunset everyday of their life on our small farm. In the morning you could find them tending to the livestock: of a few cows, chickens, pigs, goats and our main stay horses. My father’s family raised horses in the old country and now… Continue
