"You wouldn't believe me if I tried telling yer Jack", said Don.
Jack scanned his list - "Well now, that only leaves 4 more - Jacky, Michele, Martha and Denise. Any guesses where they might be? I think Sandra went off to see about them a while back . . . . have you seen her about the place? I'm really quite eager to get this whole convention started here, but need 100% of the members present so I can cut the ribbon"
"We'll I'll go see if I can see 'em" started Don, but was stopped in his tracks by Margaret who grabbed him from behind "Oh no you don't!! - I ain't letting you move from this group again!! There's trouble out there", she warned.

You have to admit though, it's a pretty good image!

Don and Margaret looked at one another, not saying a word. Heck, they wanted this Castle for themselves and here was Jack laying down the law. 'Think we'd better get movin darlin' Don whispered. 'Finders, keepers an all of that!' Margaret nodded.

'Look here!' Margaret pointed to a tall Cupboard covered in cobwebs and dust. 'Why don't we open this up!' Don pulled vigorously on the rusty bolt. 'Phew! It aint easy! Gradually the bolt began to ease and the door creaked open. 'Aint nothin here Margaret' Don sighed. 'Nothin at all!' 'Never mind, lets keep walkin!' Margaret encouraged. More long corridors, dusty cobwebs and lurking shadows. 'Look, theres someone in front of us Margaret. Ugh, dont like the look of this!'
'Well I'll be a Monkey's Aunt. That's Denise, Michele, Martha, Sandra and Jacky! Hiya gals. Jack's been on the hunt for you lot. Whereya bin?' The girls looked round in astonishment.' 'So pleased you have joined us!' Martha gushed. 'Thought you had defected to the ones who aren't really here!' 'Yes' Michele added, 'we all decided to carry on looking for the Coat of Arms and seems as though the White One has disappeared for now!' 'Good on ya gals. Seems like we're all back together again. Really happy about that!'
'Let's keep looking!' Denise smiled. 'The quicker we get hold of the Coat of Arms the quicker we can close this story!' 'Too right!' Sandra added. 'Come on you Pommie and Yanks, I think we might be turning the corner any minute now!'

That's where the Coat of Arms was hidden (although they didn't know that either!).

Margaret's face was one of relief.

"607, 608, 609, 610" she counted as she puffed up the stairs.
"Aw, please Margaret, can't we stop a while", panted Don to Margaret who was dragging him forward. "No dear, we can't. We have to be there with the others to get the Coat of Arms - now come on you don't do the treadmill at home for nothing".

Denise, being the clumsy girl she is, twisted her legs and whooooopsssss, fell down all those stairs she climbed up, "I give up, let the others find the Arms" she mumbled to herself.
So Denise hobbled out of the Castle into one of the Guest Houses where she had her knitting stashed away, forgot about the others, and knitted to the sounds of the stream nearby when she heard loud noises coming from the Castle..

"Yep - 4 to go and then the Coat of Arms is ours and so is the Castle," replied Margaret.
"Well let's keep moving then - I've suddenly gained my second wind!" exclaimed Don.
"Yeah - you're telling me!" Margaret said, waving the air in front of her nose.
They continued up. Meanwhile, Michele was falling behind as she got her numbers confused and was deciding whether she should start again or give up . . .

Martha winced. She wasn't the type to give up easily. 'Onward Christian Soldiers...........' she sang out, her arms waving an imaginary baton wildly in the air..........' 'Good on yer Martha', Sandra held out her hand, ' One thing I've learned about you since we met is that you won't give up without a fight. Come on, hold on to me until you get your wind back.........!'

Hmmmmm, perhaps she was knitting a Kilt! But for who?
Posted 24 April 2004 - 05:21 PM
'Ten Green bottles Hanging on the Wall.........' 'Awe shucks' Don grunted, 'aint that girl got anythin better to sing than that stupid song!'
Meanwhile, they were climbing higher and higher and higher. 'Oh look!' Margaret called out, grabbing Don by the arm. 'What in heavan's name is that?'

The WHITE CLOUD appeared to be gathering speed now as it twisted, turned and rolled towards the earth. Puffs of smoke now spurted this way and that and candy floss trails followed in its wake. 'OOOOOOOOOOOh!' everyone called out in unison, 'ooooooooooooooooooooh, just look at that!' Everyone watched, their mouths open in dismay as they held on tightly to the low wall.
Finally there was a huge PUFF which seemed to send out billowing clouds of smoke upwards and outwards. 'Jeeeeeeeeeeeeez' Sandra exclaimed out loud ..............!
