A Knock On The Willow


My favorite holiday is now in the books for 2016. I love Thanksgiving and look forward to it every year! There is something about great food and great memories that are made that makes this holiday so special. It is better than Christmas because you are allowed the family and friend time and all of the wonderful food that is prepared and do not have the worry of gifts being brought into the fold.

My Thanksgiving was at my folks home, where there is plenty of room and my father always has the wood stove on the front porch going, creating such a wonderful Fall environment inside for dinner! My kids look forward to turkey, noodles and deviled eggs and always leave the able full. This time has left me more thankful than ever!

I am thankful tonight because I sat down and wrote another page of The Boondock Kids. As Kelmare landed Mario, Louis, Sindy and Cristena  into he land of Warrenstead, he was offering to take them to the dwelling of his friend, Rascone, a Platidon who lived there, for rest.

Everyone agreed to go and it was only a short distance to Rascone’s home. Kelmare asked his friends to stand still as he made his way towards a large willow tree. Once at the base of the willow, Kelmare felt around for the right spot of bark and began to gently knock on it as if it were a door. Louis and Cristena question Kelmare and his knocking. He lets them know that the knock will be carried through the roots of the tree and echo into Rascone’s dwelling. Kelmare also has a gentle knock that Rasone will recognize who is above ground.

Sindy asked Kelmare if they would wait long. Then Rascone appeared, a four foot tall beaver with brown fur and brown skin tail. He wore a belt and sash that had pockets for storing items and walked as easy as The Boondock Kids themselves walked. Kelmare and Rascone greeted one another by hugging and then shaking hands.

Now, it is almost 1 a.m. and my morning will come early as I am going to be working on my rental house and want the most of the daylight I can get to work. I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving and are safe in the shopping days that follow.

Run after your dreams!
