Peeks head out from around corner in guilt.

Just thougth I would pop in and say hi to everybody. Life has been weird and very changing for the last several months. But I am back to writing so maybe I can get back on track. By the way, does anyone have a male they want to lend out to do some yard work? I have about three years worth to catch up on. I have a sex crazed male to exchange for a few weeks of peace and quiet.

A Thanksgiving Day Parable

THANKSGIVING DAY PARABLE
by Emilio Paletta Copywrite 2006

POP WAS MY HERO
Having been born on Thanksgiving is quite special. Oh, I guess there are those who might say, “What’s the big deal; thousands of babies are born on Thanksgiving?"

Well, that may be true; but in my case it was entirely different. My destiny was predetermined the minute I was conceived. “How come you ask?” It's really quite simple, you see, unlike you I'm a turkey; and unless you‘re one too, you've no idea, what it’s like knowing someday when laid to rest; it'll be on someone's dinning room table.

My journey began on a cold snowy night in November of 1928. Mom told me it was so cold, that after hatching my skin was covered over with goose bumps; Go figure!

The late Tom and Penny Fowler were my loving parents and resided in the Poconos'; on a farm owned by the Mac Donald family. Mom's lineage was domestic; whereas Pops' was wild. The two love birds though of different breeding, were able to talk turkey; whether necking or pecking. Before settling down Pop was hunted night and day, never knowing when he'd end up in the sights of game hunters. He was a handsome bird with colorful flaps of skin around his neck, called wattles. I'll let you in on a little secret, ' I think that’s what attracted Mom.'

Early in the evening Pop could be heard gobbling; as he serenaded mom. After keeping company a few months, they tied the knot; and not long after Mom was in a family way. Proud of him-self, pop strutted around the barnyard doing the “Turkey Trot.” Mom’s family was not particularly enamored about the mixed marriage. The newlyweds could care less. The rest of their barnyard friends were delighted; as was Old Mac Donald.

Both Pop and Mom loved dancing. During weekly barn-dances they'd kick their heels, and do-si-do; to the tune of “Turkey in the Straw”

Unlike domesticated birds pop was capable of flying at 55 miles per hour, and able to run at speeds of twenty-five. 'I’ll tell you this, pop was no slouch; he was a born leader; who was resourceful, trustworthy, and intelligent. He earned his reputation for courage under fire. It was easy to understand considering his great, great, great, grandfather once was suggested by Ben Franklin, to be the national bird; instead of the eagle.'

After I came along pop took me under his wing. He kept me abreast of things, teaching me the rudiments of living in the wild' and the art of outfoxing game hunters. He explained how our ancestors migrated from far off Turkey, to North America, in their struggle for a better existence.

Life on the farm was quiet and serene; that is, until the 1929 Depression hit; just before Thanksgiving. Old Mac Donald had a look of anguish on his face as he gathered the barnyard boys, to explain that taxes were due; and he had no choice, but to sell one of each species. Panic set in causing the domesticated birds to turn chicken. Noting their fear Pop was first to step-up to the plate; knowing all to well he was placing his neck on the chopping block. At that moment I never felt prouder.

To lay down ones life so others may live, is the supreme sacrifice. Pop was my hero. Although saddened, Mom stood by her Tom; as she fought to hold back the tears.

Shortly after Pop’s demise, Mom died of a broken heart. As for me I still live on the farm, and now have a family of my own. Old Mac Donald has since passed, leaving the property to his son, Young Mac Donald. I know someday, when my numbers’ up, I too will follow in my brave father’s footsteps, and when I do I'd like my epitaph to read:

“HERE LIES TOM JR, A TOUGH OLD BIRD, WHO LIKE HIS POP, GAVE HIS LIFE SO OTHERS MAY HAVE A BLESSED AND HAPPY THANKSGIVING”

“BY THE WAY, NEXT TIME YOU'RE OUT FOR A DRIVE AND SPOT THE FAMILY AND I CROSSING THE ROAD, GIVE US A BRAKE; 'CAUSE IF YOU DON'T, I MIGHT FLY OFF THE HANDLE, AND ATTACK YOU.”

For all of you dragon lovers out there

Just imagine the chaos!

Title: Growing Pains

Author: amber

Beta: Oli

Rating: G, and most definitely AU

Character: Eonwe, the Valar

Disclaimer: I am just borrowing Tolkien’s characters.

Summary: Eonwe brings home a pet.

 

 

“Get rid of it!” Manwë ordered.

“But it is just a baby,” he countered.

“It is evil,” Manwë growled.

“But it thinks I am its mother,” he tried to argue.

“You know better,” Manwë stated again as he tried to hold in a sigh of frustration.

“It is rather cute,” Oromë added as he played with the little blue and yellow striped dragon in Eönwë’s arms.

“We just fought a war to destroy the evil that created them,” Tulkas commented trying to back up the Elder King. He thought it was cute also but acknowledged it would not stay that way.

“It may not be evil if I raise it,” Eonwe began to plead as the little dragon he had found before coming back to Aman from Middle-earth clung closer to him.

“Do I need to have Thoronder kill it?” Manwë asked in a quiet voice as Eonwe began to cuddle it closer.

“No sir,” Eonwe answered in defeat.

“Aulë, go with him to ensure the deed is done,” Manwë ordered before turning back to his Herald who he considered his son. “Then I think perhaps that you need to spend some time with your uncle Namo child.”

            Varda began to snicker and finally laughed outright after Eonwe and Aulë had left.

            “What are you laughing at?” Manwë demanded to know.

            “Just imagining what other ideas will show up as they grow,” Varda answered as she tried to sooth her husband. “After all, he is one of the oldest and the first to hit puberty.”

            There was a collective groan around the throne room as the other Valar thought about just what the Queen was implying. As if the Eldar and their troubles were not enough, now they had to deal with their Maiar growing up.

            “Do not even think you are going to send them all to me,” Namo said as he disappeared in a hurry.

Disclaimer: The characters are Tolkien’s; I am just borrowing them.

Summary: Celebrían has a problem with the high king’s herald.

 

            ‘Of all the nerve.’ Celebrían thought as she stomped through the palace towards the High King’s office. ‘Well, my cousin will just over rule this upstart, and then give him a good dressing down.’

            “Why does your herald hate me?” she demanded of the king as she interrupted his little meeting without thinking about it. “What is it with this, this Peredhel?”
