Semi Free-Form Deryni Gaming / Re: Ghosts of the Past
« Last post by revanne on Today at 05:19:14 pm »
The ale was good with a rich malty aroma and a smooth nutty flavour. Dhugal had to remind himself that he had given his word not to question where this had come from. Besides, there was no sign that Andras or his colleagues were anything other than punctilious in the carrying out of their duties and he knew that Kelson, as indeed himself, saw no reason why those who served him should not enjoy the good things of life appropriate to their station.

More to the point it appeared to be serving its purpose with Richard. He was drinking slowly and appreciatively - and Dhugal could not help but be amused that despite all that had happened and his current fear the seaman's taste for a good brew, as for a good vintage, was untainted - and gradually the fear began to fade from his eyes. He stood up, gave a deep belch and handed the skin back to Andras with a nod of thanks, then turned to Dhugal.

"I don't know how long this will last but there is enough good magic in that ale to counter my jitters so let's be done with it."

Dhugal hoped he had not heard a stress on the word "good" but there was no time to waste. Still anxious, he pulled out his St Camber medal from within his tunic and grasping hold of it prayed that the saint who was reputed to be the protector of both humans and Deryni would come to their aid. (( 5 + 3 + 6 = 14, 4l88zvrwf8 - thank you Sanctus Camberus.)) Then he put his hand on Richard's forehead and took control as he led him through the veil into the room beyond and onto the portal square. Grasping the energies with his mind he had rarely been so glad to see the familiar outline of the portal room in Ballymar.

Their feet had barely touched the ground when he released control of Richard's mind though he was careful to keep a hold of the other's arm lest he should still be disorientated.

"Thank you, My Lord, but it will take more than a skinful of ale to put a seafarer off balance." Richard's tone was deliberately jocular, if somewhat forced, and with a smile Dhugal released his grip and replied in kind.

"I'm glad to hear it, else there's few boats would ever come safe to port!"

Richard clearly did not want to speak about his fear, and now was not the time to raise it, though Dhugal did wonder if Mirjana might be the best person to help him. Though she was Deryni she too had suffered unspeakably at the hands of one who abused his power. That was for another day though. Please God they could both make for their beds and at least sleep through what was left of this night in comfort and undisturbed.

The hope was vain. As the two men walked back through the castle, Dhugal being greeted with deferential bows, and both men with warm relief, word spread that "himself" was back and Master Kirby with him. As they entered the Great Hall, Dhugal to go up the solar stair into the ducal appartments and Richard out across the Bailey to his own quarters the Master-at-arms met them. Barely taking time to bow he all but grabbed hold of the Duke and blurted out,

"Ships, Yer Grace. And comin' along at a grand rate. The wind tha's blowin' them, it's no natural. The wind doesn'a blow like that from the East this time o'year, nor just out at sea. There's many o'the men speirin' it's the work o' the de'il himself. And I'd no say they were wrong." He crossed himself fervently as he finished speaking.

((They could well be right at that. Valerian does some weather working to aid ships from Tolan. Only rolled 2d because although Valerian is extremly skilled, he is also preoccupied.  6 + 4 = 10, 6qt2x19d6b))

Dhugal grabbed the man by the shoulders and barked, "How many ships? And where are they, have they passed the castle?"

"I canna just say how many, M'Lord, twice or thrice times ten mebbe. Yon crofters along the coast are canny enow at lighting the signal fires but no so braw at figurin'. But gi'en how they've bin comin' I'd say they'll 'a' dropped anchor in the mouth of yon sea loch ahint yon brae," he pointed to the east, "and if they gan their road wi' first light they'll be here afore Father Aidan has finished sayin' his morning prayers. The ships are gey prepared to sail and the men aboard, but it's fer yer Grace or Master Kirby ta gie the order ta leave port."

"They'll no' be coming here," Dhugal said grimly, "They've other prey in sight."

"Still, treble the guard and tell each man not on duty to sleep with his weapons. No man has ever taken this castle." He stopped for a moment in thought then added, "Late as it is, rouse the villagers, tell them to bring their bairns and their brychans and naught else. Thank God it's warm enough for them to sleep out in the Bailey tonight. We'll rouse the household to care for them at first light. And, well done! You've done a grand job in my absence."

Calmed by his master's presence and happier now he had definite orders to fulfill, he bowed, with more dignity this time and left. As soon as he was out of sight though Dhugal's calm left him.

"Damn him to the pit of hell, whoever he is! I need this, the King needs this, like a hole in the head! If only we could have been here earlier, when it was still light, we could have had them at anchor like rats in a trap." Dhugal was venting his frustration without thought for his listener and only Richard's silence warned him that he had misspoken. Turning he saw rage and shame in the other's face.

"Just say it, Your Grace. If I hadn't been such a bloody fool about the portal we'd have been here an hour since."

"And it would have still been too dark to set sail. This far north there's aye a glimmer on the water until nigh midnight but it's not enough to see by and I'll not risk men or ships without light."

"And if you'd left me be, as I deserved, and not wasted time healing me but come back by your own, you'd have them surrounded by now."

Dhugal grabbed Richard's shoulders as though to shake sense into him, then drew a deep breath and said with forced calm,

"Whoever our enemy is, he'll want nothing better than to have us at each other's throats. Nothing today has gone well, we must just pray that God is on our side for tomorrow. If we can't catch them sleeping, we must try to stop them as they come past. Send word that the men on board ship are to be roused before dawn, which is barely a watch away, and then for God's sake get a couple of hours sleep yourself."

Richard seemed to pull himself together, made as if to bow then clasped Dhugal in a rough embrace instead and made his way briskly out of the hall. Dhugal looked after him for a long moment, then, deciding he was not about to wake Mirjana at this hour went into the withdrawing room behind the dais, pulled one of the bear skin rugs on top of another, wrapped himself in his cloak on top of them and allowed himself to fall into a light trance.

Rousing himself well before there was any glimmer of light in even in the north-eastern sky from where the sun would rise he waited long enough to perform a fatigue banishing spell then moved out into the hall. Men were already rousing themselves, and out in the Bailey there were sounds of bairns greeting with fear and hunger and their mothers doing their best to hush them. Summoning two of the men who seemed most alert despite their disturbed night he ordered them to light torches and come with him down to the quayside, expecting that he would meet Richard already down there. There was, though, no sign of him, although all were following orders and all was being done with an air of calm, if tense efficiency. They would sail at dawn as planned.

Also poor Wash; Alaric told him that when he returned he would help his son be the best man he could be. Sadly he didn't come back and the other adults in his life who should  have carried out that promise  dropped the ball, even his mother. And now he lacks magical training and skills that could help him defend himself and survive. I hope he does survive and has the opportunity  to get that training. And I know that some  children are more difficult  because I have a grandson who is somewhat like that. Very smart but had  to get him to focus on academics or homework and  working with him takes a lot of understanding  and persistence.

Poor Wash. I'm sure the scholar doesn't want him to die. What a pity he doesn't know that Jaxom's wound is painful too.

"Rest young Morgan." Even as the irresistible command caused Washburn's eyes to ease from their stare at his tormentor and for him to find himself easing to his right side, the pain in the cut on his left arm was really beginning to bother him. The jump for the beam and the subsequent tumble to the floor had re-openind the cut Jaxom's sword had made. Wash would not complain about it, yet fresh blood ran down his arm. Under his black tunic, in the darkness of the ruins, Wash doubted the Scholar noticed it. Wash could not reach the gash with his hands tied. and he could not fight the need to sleep long enough to say something about it. If only he had that Healers gift of his activated. But the Healing energy was the furthest of all arcane energy from his use. Healing required such a delicate balance. He wounder then if he would ever be able to heal again. If the wound festered and he sickened what did it matter.   Washburn fell asleep on the furs with a horrid sense of nightmares filling his future.

"Rest young Morgan." The statement by the Scholar was more of a command than a suggestion. "In the morning, you will be well rested and famished. You will eat the food and drink the wine I have prepared for you. And come the setting of the sun we will leave these ruins."

He doesn't bother to check on Washburn, knowing full well that the controls are well established that Washburn will have no option except to obey his commands. Although before sleeping himself, the Scholar rechecks the Wards that surround the ruins that will warn him of unwanted guests. And also the Wards Major that are covering the Portal itself. An age old trick to make a Portal hidden and unacessable even if those in Rhemuth managed to get its unique signature. They would not be able to reach out to it. And given the distance as well, few are skilled in long distance jumps as he was. The Scholar has a peaceful rest.

Four men all sharing the same facial features yet expressing those features in varied shades of decades in age gained admittance into the king’s withdrawing room. The council meeting had now been going on and off for the entirety of day and well into the night. At the time that the Arilans entered, the king himself was not in attendance. Neither to was Prince Javan and gone to was Duke Dhugal, who was said to be returning to Ballymar after much delay. The six men who remained were mixed about the room either signally or in pairs. All working on various scrolls and counting sheets, piecing together the details required to move large numbers of men and arms to the northern Province of Meara. The sideboard was laden with trays of food, mostly uneaten. A few small trenchers of hand picked items were scattered about the main table within the reach of councilors to assuage their hunger as they worked. More importantly, half filled goblets of wine were near each councilor’s hand. A squire with a decanter was ready to ensure that no goblet went empty.

Upon seeing the casualness of the moment, the four Arilan men collapsed in chairs around the main table, each readily accepting the goblets of wine and plates of food that royal squires scurried to place before them. The six men watched the four with interest and concern. None but one dared to speak, knowing full that the news would not be good. The one was Brendan Earl of Marley who put his quill down and moved three seats over to sit next to Denis, the elderly Bishop of Dhassa.

“Your Grace,” the earl bowed his head in reverence, “pray tell me, even if the news is poor, what of my brother?”

Denis sighed, taking a long drink of wine. The bishop’s eyes didn’t meet Brendan’s until he had placed the goblet back on the table.  Every man in the room held their breath to hear what Denis would say. With sympathy the older bishop began to speak.

“We found the Deryni Underground Movement Portal of two centuries ago, down by the river docks. The trap on it is a nasty one. Not lethal, thank the Lord, but not easily broken either. Attempts were made, only to be meet with failure. We left guards at the Portal site and around the building. Brendan, you must hold faith that your brother is still alive. Sextus saw him in that place at mid afternoon. We can only presume that our blundering into there caused him to be moved quickly there after. Not much was left near the Portal to give us clues as to where, or by whom he was taken. The food we did find there has been sent to the apothicaires to see if they could help determine what drug, if any, lay upon it.  As for the signature of where Wash was taken…? We still have have some 20 hours of the 24 hours left to discover it. After that you know as well as I that the coordinate signature for Portal jumps tend to fade beyond recognition. We will try again at dawn, when we have regained our energy.”

“Damn it all.” Lord Angus cursed before Brendan could protest, “Ye’ a man of God’s Magic. How it be that this evil has beaten the?” The duke stood up and walked over to stand next to his earl, supporting Brendan in this time of stress. “And what’s this about Kelson forbidding anyone from taking that Portal jump until he deems ‘tis safe. How you supposed to know it’s safe if you don’t test it. I don’t even pretend to understand this fangled magic of travel. But surely something can be done before dawn. And then I ‘ear tell, that damnable Moor up and died before ‘e could’ answer ‘or his crimes.”

The bishop’s eyebrows went up at the news, but he nodded, knowing full well what Angus meant. A death trigger was not unheard of when dealing with Deryni from the east. “I am sorry, Brendan.” The old bishop meant it. “At the moment, your brother is beyond our reach.”

Despite Brendan Coris’s devastating paternity of a man who had committed treason four decades ago, Brendan, Earl of Marly had become one of the most highly respected men in the kingdom. His strong Deryni training and ferocious loyalties to the Morgans and the Haldanes were proof enough to Denis that some traits did not pass from father to son. Yet the Deryni trait from mother to son was passed on in full. Proved again and again, half-blood Deryni were capable of learning as much as full- blood Deryni. The old prejudices of half-bloods were unfounded. What seemed to matter most was the family blood-lines of at least one parent. Some families were simply stronger in the arcane than others. And Richenda’s blood lines were among the highest. As had been Alaric Morgan’s mother’s blood lines. That was why Alaric and Duncan as half-bloods had surprised the Cambarian Council back in the early days. It was the half of Whose blood that counted which made a men as good as another.

With both Alaric’s and Richenda’s bloodlines mix together, their children had been a pleasure to teach. Brendan, Kelric and the girls especially. With shame, Denis realized he was as much at fault as anyone else's for thinking Washburn immature and spoiled. He had not offer Alaric’s youngest son the lessons of advanced magic and had even discouraged Duncan from wasting his time in that effort. After the first few tries to keep the young page Washburn in his lessons, Denise simple gave up. If the rumors were true, that Washburn had the gift of Healing like his father, so much more guilt did Denis feel for not offering a challenge to the boy to do better. 

But at the moment that was neither here nor there. Denis noted the rebellion in Brendan’s eyes. “The first Portal jump was a warning, son. The closer we get, the more likely the next traps will be lethal. Kelson has put a halt on finding your brother in that way for good reason.”

Brendan bit his lip than said to the bishop under his breath, “You have certain connections. Can they not find Wash?”

“There has been some Rapport between us,” Denis failed to mention who the us was, knowing full well that Brendan knew they were talking about the secretive Camberian Council. “As yet, no one even knows who is behind this rebellion. We need more answers before we can make rash accusations.”

This please Branden not at all. He slammed his palm on the table, took a deep breath, murmured “Forgive me.” and then stalked over the the side board and the food only staring at the food without really seeing it.

For a long while after the room was quite. The Arilans ate sparingly and the others worked on their scrolls. At length the doors open and the king was announced.  Everyone stood and bowed at his entry. “I was informed of  your return. Your grace, I would have your report and I wish to share an item which I am in hopes you have enlightenment.” Kelson waived to the others, “at ease my good men." and then the king step with purpose to a far window embrasure, beckoning the Bishop of Dhassa to join him.

With all attention given to the two men, Brendan took the moment to catch Lord Jamyl’s gaze and signal him to join him at the side board. With trencher in hand, Jamyl came over and picked a particularly plump breast of fowl.

“Don’t react, but I implore you to take me to that portal,” Brendan begged very quietly.

“Against Kelson’s orders?” Jamyl mouthed back, a bit shocked.

“This is my brother we are talking about. I swear, I won't make the jump that the king forbids, but I have to know what the portal signature is to where he was next taken. Every hour wasted and that signature fades more. If we wait too long it will be impossible to find it. You have to help me.”

Jamyl looked over Brendan’s shoulder seeing his father and uncle in heavy conversation with Dukes Angus and Albin. Grand uncle Denis was in deep Rapport with the King in the far corner. No one else was looking their way.

“If it was one of your family, you know you would do it,” Brendan encouraged.

The younger Lord Jamyl had to nod with agreement. “Better that we leave separately. Give me twenty minutes after I leave to get the horses ready. Meet me at the gate house when you can get away.”

“Thank you,” Brendan breathed. “I knew I could count on you.”

Jamyl returned to the table to eat what he had picked up. After a few minutes, Brendan slugged down his wine, ate a meat roll and then returned to Duke Angus who was counting up the levees.

Slightly modified my last two posts to allow the day to end in Rhemuth. I know the summer days will be long (if we are talking British latitudes about 3 am until 9pm given that summer time hadn't been invented) but would end sometime!

And modified again to fit in with Laurna's timeline.

Great addition Laurna. Great to see Brendan.

A terrific idea Laurna .
Quick question. Is the Camberian  Council still in existence? Would they get involved in this?

Yes the Camberian Council still exists. The elderly Bishop Denis Arilan is still a member. But as always they are involved in discussions for the proper course of action to take, if any, in this current crisis. So they probably wont be involved in this storyline at all, except mentioned in passing from time to time.

[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:33:44 PM EDT] <Shiral> My sister loves to bake, but she is one of those people who has no inclination to EAT what she makes.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:33:48 PM EDT] <Bee> I haven't baked for a long time. Most of by cooking is crockpot.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:33:55 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Slow cookers are fantastic.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:10 PM EDT] <KK> I had a great adventure yesterday. A good friend drove down from DC and we went to Greenbrier to tour the underground bunker built during the cold war. Then we had an elegant tea, and geocached on the way home through back roads in W.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:15 PM EDT] <WidowSon> slow cooker lasagna is the BEST!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That recipe I was talking about a bit ago that was originally for beef short ribs that I modified for chuck roast is a slow cooker recipe.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh, cool, KK!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:24 PM EDT] Join Goatmistress (~chatzilla@OWIRCN-bc01fffc.cntmoh.sbcglobal.net) has joined this channel.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:27 PM EDT] <Shiral> Cool, KK
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Goatmistress
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:35 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hello Goatmistress
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:36 PM EDT] <Goatmistress> Hi
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:41 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hi Goatmistress
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:45 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Yay! love geocaching!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:52 PM EDT] <Bee> sounds like fun, KK
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:56 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Sounds like you had a blast! KK
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:57 PM EDT] <KK> Hello, Goatmistress.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:34:58 PM EDT] <Shiral> So....I've been wanting to ask--are there real live goats in your life?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:35:05 PM EDT] <Bee> hi Goatmistress
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:35:08 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Hi Goatmistress!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:35:09 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I have forgotten what geocaching is
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:35:18 PM EDT] <Goatmistress> No real goats. Just a name . . .
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:35:30 PM EDT] <Shiral> Sounds like a nice way to spend a Saturday, KK
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:35:39 PM EDT] <KK> It's like an electronic scavenger hunt, and you find the clues via sat nav and smart phones.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:35:50 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Ah, OK
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:35:55 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Im jealous KK....mine was not that fun!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:36:13 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I was thinking fossil finds
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:36:14 PM EDT] <Shiral> I had a nice day painting and gardening, yesterday
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:36:37 PM EDT] <WidowSon> I've been reading and writing!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:36:39 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I assume they were separate activities.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:36:57 PM EDT] <Shiral> Yes
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:37:05 PM EDT] <KK> My friend, Elonka Dunin the cryptographer some of you may know (of), introduced me to the sport a couple of years ago, and it was really fun. y
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:37:08 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Or you may have a very colourful garden!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:37:10 PM EDT] <WidowSon> yes for me too
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:37:21 PM EDT] <Shiral> Painting in the morning, gardening after my back patio had some shady places
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:37:36 PM EDT] <WidowSon> You know the most interesting people KK!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:37:45 PM EDT] <Shiral> Indeed
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:37:58 PM EDT] <Shiral> I've never had tea in an underground bunker
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:38:04 PM EDT] <WidowSon> present chat company included!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:38:41 PM EDT] <WidowSon> I had tea in a cave once! LOL
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:39:17 PM EDT] <KK> One of the caches was in an area off a back road in WV called Beartown, which has a huge boardwalk going through an area seriously eroded into gorges and hidey-holes and the like. We never found that clue--we were running out of light--but it was incredibly beautiiful down there. And somwhow there managed not to be any flying insects, which really surprised me.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:39:51 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Excellent
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:39:56 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Love how the plant habitats change as you go deeper in places like that! wonderful!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:40:13 PM EDT] <Shiral> There are some mosquitoes you have to fight off with a crucifix
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:40:15 PM EDT] <KK> The tea was in one of the incredibly beautiful reception rooms of the hotel; the bunker is underground, and still classified Secret. When it was built, the locals had no idea this was going on right under their noses.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:40:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Tell me about it, Shiral! (re: mosquitoes)
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:40:30 PM EDT] <WidowSon> WOW!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:40:42 PM EDT] <Shiral> Ah, well hotel Tea sounds more appealing. =o)
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:40:58 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Battery powered mosquito rackets are the best invention EVER
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:41:01 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Thats really cool KK
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:41:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I apparently have just exactly the type of blood chemistry mosquitoes (and other bitey annoying insects) ADORE.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:41:22 PM EDT] <KK> It was very tasty. If I could figure out how to get photos out of a text message, I'd post a pic or two.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:41:25 PM EDT] <Shiral> Every time I go camping, I come home with bites. Mosquitoes find me very tasty. Must be the Peking Duck
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:41:56 PM EDT] <WidowSon> yes pics would be magical on here.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:42:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Shiral: Neat trick I got from another SCA person. Buy a box of Bounce regular scent dryer sheets and rub a dryer sheet or several on your skin. The smell apparently repels the mosquitoes.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:42:13 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I don't go camping. It's like hanging out a "dinner is being served" sign
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:42:32 PM EDT] <WidowSon> LOL Jerusha!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:42:37 PM EDT] <Shiral> I gave up camping after High School.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:42:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, if you ever need to be outdoors at dusk, maybe for a wine tasting or something cool like that . . . ;)
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:43:10 PM EDT] <Shiral> True! Thanks, DR
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:43:36 PM EDT] <WidowSon> What's your favorite food KK?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:43:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Because it works. Even at a campground in Florida with a large marshy lake nearby. :D
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:44:03 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I might make myself a Bounce bug shirt
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:44:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> :D
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:44:09 PM EDT] <Bee> Does it work on other biting insects?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:44:09 PM EDT] <KK> Main course or dessert?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:44:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Seems to, Bee.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:44:18 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Main course
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:44:33 PM EDT] <KK> Avon Skin-So-Soft is supposed to be good for repelling insects.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:44:51 PM EDT] <WidowSon> only for sand gnats KK
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:44:51 PM EDT] <Jerusha> They now sell it specifically for pets here
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:44:56 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup, it works too, but some people find the smell of Skin-So-Soft a bit strong; the dryer sheets don't smell as strong.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:45:03 PM EDT] <Shiral> You're on your own when it comes to Alligators, though
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:45:05 PM EDT] <KK> Roast leg of lamb, crispy potatoes, asparagus.... Yum!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:45:07 PM EDT] <WidowSon> it actually attracts skeeters!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:45:17 PM EDT] <Shiral> Good choices, all
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:45:21 PM EDT] <WidowSon> YUM! Lamb!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:45:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, yes, but gators mostly will leave humans alone unless you bother them or you come to close to Mama Gator's nest/babies.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:45:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> *too close
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:45:52 PM EDT] <WidowSon> I just had a WONDERFUL lamb dish at a restaurant called Kareems here in Naples......Delish!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:45:56 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yum!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:46:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I don't eat lamb much because it's expensive, but I've had some wonderful lamb dishes at a couple of local Middle Eastern restaurants, and I made a lamb stew for St. Patrick's Day a few years back.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:46:35 PM EDT] <Bee> Indian restaurants have several delish lamb dishes.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:46:38 PM EDT] <bynw> to fight off gators, go for the eyes, you cant open its mouth
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:46:41 PM EDT] <Shiral> Give me a lamb chop and you can obtain quite a bit from me
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:46:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Also colcannon to go with it, and a neighbor (at the time) made Guinness bread bowls for the stew.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:47:08 PM EDT] <Bee> colcannon?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:47:09 PM EDT] <Shiral> I don't ever mean to get THAT close to an alligator if I can help it
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:47:24 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I agree, Shiral
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:47:28 PM EDT] <WidowSon> My fave is a dish from a Mediterranean restaurant here in town......Chicken Liver Oregenato.....braised to perfection with citrus and herbs over Orzo!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:47:31 PM EDT] <DesertRose> An Irish dish involving mashed potatoes, ham, and cabbage, which tastes better than it sounds.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:47:49 PM EDT] <WidowSon> I love cabbage!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:48:11 PM EDT] <Shiral> Whether or not I like cabbage depends very much on how it was prepared.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:48:12 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Even better is Rutabagas!mmmmm
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:48:28 PM EDT] <Bee> Did you all see the story about a woman killed by a gator? They found her arm in its stomach.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:48:28 PM EDT] <KK> WS, that sounds delish. Love orzo.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:48:31 PM EDT] <Shiral> But I love green peas
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:48:32 PM EDT] * bynw will have roast beef, potatoes, carrots, all covered in gravy
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:48:46 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I have to be careful with cabbage. I think I don't produce a digestive enzyme, because broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, and kale DO NOT settle well on my stomach, and I can have cabbage only every once in a while in small quantities.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:49:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (All those vegetables have been selectively bred for various traits from wild cabbage.)
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:49:18 PM EDT] <Shiral> AND asparagus, and broccolini, and butternut squash. Although not necessarily all at once.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:49:24 PM EDT] <Jerusha> You just eliminated all the vegetables I like best, except for kale
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:49:39 PM EDT] <Bee> I remember cabbage and raisin salads from childhood.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:50:30 PM EDT] <Derynifank> I have a recipe for broccoli and raisin salad
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:50:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I remember a salad involving shredded carrots and raisins.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:50:32 PM EDT] <Shiral> Other than your adventure, have you had a good week, KK?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:50:50 PM EDT] <Shiral> I've had carrot and raisin salad.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:51:40 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Ditto KK hows the week been? I hope smashing good!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:51:47 PM EDT] <Bee> I've taken cabbage and dried cranberry salad to a potluck.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:52:53 PM EDT] <KK> It was a busy week, with lots of appointments for me and for LBM. This week should be a bit better.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:53:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> How is LBM?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:53:02 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Oh, I just got a letter from my Masonic lodge......getting my 25 year service pin!!!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:53:09 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Congrats, WidowSon!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:53:15 PM EDT] <Bee> How is LBM doing?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:53:23 PM EDT] <Shiral> It's amazing how fast appointments can gobble up your week
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:53:24 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Thanks !
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:53:34 PM EDT] <Shiral> Congratulations
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:53:45 PM EDT] <WidowSon> I joined when I was pretty young.....26
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:53:53 PM EDT] <Bee> congrats to WidowSon
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:53:59 PM EDT] <Shiral> Just a lad. =o)
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:53:59 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Well done!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:54:17 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Yeah KK I hope next week is better for ya
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:54:17 PM EDT] <KK> Congrats, WS. And LBM is doing reasonably ok for nearly 93. Slowing down a bit, of course. Gus goes to visit just about every day.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:54:28 PM EDT] <Bee> Were yoou in DeMolay?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:54:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Aw, sweet Gus.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:54:38 PM EDT] <WidowSon> 93!!! Thats Amazing!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:54:49 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Good for Gus
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:54:51 PM EDT] <WidowSon> No never a Demolay
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:54:55 PM EDT] <Jerusha> And LBM
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:54:56 PM EDT] <Shiral> Everyone is higher maintenance when they're 93
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:55:04 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Assuming we get there at all!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:55:24 PM EDT] <Bee> My mom lived to 998.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:55:24 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Tell LBM we send loads of LOVE!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:55:33 PM EDT] <Bee> 98!!!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:55:42 PM EDT] <Shiral> LOL, I wondered, Bee
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:55:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, I was just about to pick on you about that typo, Bee. :D
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:55:52 PM EDT] <KK> I shall tell her.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:55:54 PM EDT] <Jerusha> 998 sounds like Duncan
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:56:09 PM EDT] <Shiral> Duncan hardly looks a day over 800
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:56:09 PM EDT] <WidowSon> My target age is 136!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:56:17 PM EDT] <Bee> My finger has a habit of lingering too long on some keys.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:56:19 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys says hi.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:56:26 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hi Carys
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:56:31 PM EDT] <Shiral> Yes, Our best wishes to LBM
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:56:32 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Howdy Carys! Purrrrrrr
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:56:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She just stretched out on the desk above the keyboard tray.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:56:53 PM EDT] <Shiral> Dmitri just showed up, too
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:57:00 PM EDT] * Bee scritches Carys.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:57:03 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hi Dmitri
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:57:07 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Hi Dmitri!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:57:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm annoying her by playing with her toes.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:57:16 PM EDT] <WidowSon> lol
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:57:30 PM EDT] <Shiral> And Tati is showing what an artistic cat she is by lying on my most recent, half-finished painting
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:57:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Because Carys is a VERY laid-back cat, she is merely looking at me like, "Hey, knock it off!" rather than attempting to take a chunk out of my fingers for my presumption.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:57:35 PM EDT] * Bee skritches Dmitri's ears.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:57:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Scritches to Dmitri and Tatiana.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:57:56 PM EDT] <Shiral> Dmitri sends his electronic purrs
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:58:08 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hope the painting is dry, Shiral
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:58:31 PM EDT] <DesertRose> If not, there are plenty of historical examples of cat artistry.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:58:36 PM EDT] <Shiral> Yes. I stopped working on it over an hour ago. Went for my walk, then had lunch
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:58:44 PM EDT] <Shiral> re3wwwwwwwwwwwwww
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:58:59 PM EDT] <Shiral> That was Dmitri's comment
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:59:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> There's a pretty funny 15th C. manuscript with cat paw prints across it, and another with a curse in Latin on the cat who . . . did something modern cats would generally do in the litter box to the manuscript.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [7:59:14 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Whats your cat's name again KK?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:00:03 PM EDT] <KK> There's Augustus (Gus), Sasha (Alexander Pushkin), and Nicholas.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:00:19 PM EDT] <WidowSon> WOW! 3 like us!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:00:41 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Ours are Aslan, Phoebe, and Luca!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:00:58 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Gotta love them kitties!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:01:17 PM EDT] <Shiral> This is the place for cat lovers and food lovers. =o)
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:01:43 PM EDT] <Bee> and KK lovers
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:01:46 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Dang straight Shiral!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:01:56 PM EDT] <Derynifank> True
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:01:57 PM EDT] <Shiral> Especially that last one, Bee
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:01:59 PM EDT] <WidowSon> KK Lovers most of all!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:02:00 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Some of us do not have cats, but like them anyway
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:02:21 PM EDT] <Shiral> Two out of three isn't bad. =o)
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:02:36 PM EDT] <Jerusha> :)
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:02:36 PM EDT] <Bee> dog lovers too
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:02:43 PM EDT] <Shiral> definitely
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:02:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup, doggies are good company too.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:02:50 PM EDT] <WidowSon> dogs are fun too!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:03:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Carys doesn't think so, but in any case, my lease permits only one pet per apartment. :D
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:03:13 PM EDT] <Shiral> fg
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:03:16 PM EDT] <Bee> same wwith me
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:03:18 PM EDT] <KK> Yep, two Bassets ehre: Booker (Bookeroo Banzai) and Warner (Warner Brown Hound).
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:03:35 PM EDT] <Jerusha> One aged whippet
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:03:35 PM EDT] <Shiral> sorry human vs cat territorial battle in progress at my end
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:03:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:03:47 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Who's winning?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:04:10 PM EDT] <Shiral> I think Dmitri is. He's the one with the fangs.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:04:11 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Any possible movie makes in the works KK? Gosh I'd love to see some of your creations come to life on the big screen.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:05:51 PM EDT] <KK> Lammas Night is still optioned, and Deryni Rising had gotten to scropt but then fell out. But we live in hope.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:06:17 PM EDT] <WidowSon> YES HOPE!!! Im sending good vibes!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:06:50 PM EDT] <Bee> both with Sony?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:06:55 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Who do we write letters to re: Lamas night? We need a letter writing campaign STAT!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:07:22 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Im VERY serious by the way.....
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:07:44 PM EDT] <WidowSon> I'll write'em next week!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:07:45 PM EDT] <Shiral> 3q4w
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:07:49 PM EDT] <Shiral> 44444444444444444444444
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:07:51 PM EDT] <KK> DR was with Sony. LN is a new and independent producer who probably won't get it together. But again, we live in hope
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:07:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Jerusha, didn't you have multiple whippets?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:07:54 PM EDT] <WidowSon> what spiral?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:08:05 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I think that might be Dmitri typing on Shiral's keyboard.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:08:06 PM EDT] <Shiral> Dmitri is sending HIS messages
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:08:15 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Shiral
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:08:23 PM EDT] <WidowSon> ahhhhhh
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:08:24 PM EDT] <Jerusha> We only have the one now. Scorch passed due to kidney disease
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:08:29 PM EDT] <DesertRose> :(
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:08:38 PM EDT] <Bee> :(
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:08:38 PM EDT] <Shiral> But he does kind of make a big gray furry snail of himself when he's asleep
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:08:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm sorry to hear that, but now you say it, I think you mentioned it before.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:08:57 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Yup :(
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:08:59 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Yes, it was early last fall.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:09:03 PM EDT] <DesertRose> :(
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:09:20 PM EDT] <Jerusha> He's in a much better place now
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:09:22 PM EDT] <Shiral> Kidney disease is very hard. I've lost two kitties to that
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:09:37 PM EDT] <Bee> Melantha's due for her annual ccheckup..
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:09:37 PM EDT] <KK> So sad when our animal companions pass.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:09:39 PM EDT] <Shiral> I know scorch is a dog, but the discomfort must be similar
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:09:52 PM EDT] <Shiral> Their life spans aren't long enough
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:09:56 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Yup.....not easy!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:09:58 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Yes. But may happy memories
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:10:02 PM EDT] <Shiral> Good
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:10:09 PM EDT] <KK> But at least we're blessed with their company while we have them, and they have us.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:10:14 PM EDT] <Shiral> Definitely
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:10:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> https://www.instagram.com/p/BkGXDIhAQc4/
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:10:48 PM EDT] <Shiral> Tati has this funny way of running into a room ahead of me then suddenly flopping down on the carpet and showing her tummy
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:10:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Merlin and Layla.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:10:50 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I do sometimes miss his singing a people walking down the street. They might not miss it, though
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:11:00 PM EDT] <Shiral> She's very good at the Flop'n'roll
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:11:18 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Well.....gotta go everyone :) Great chatting with Ya'll! Take Care KK!!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:11:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, g'night, WidowSon!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:11:30 PM EDT] <Shiral> Bye, WS. Come back soon!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:11:31 PM EDT] <Goatmistress> take care
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:11:40 PM EDT] <Bee> bye WidowSon
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:11:45 PM EDT] <KK> Aw, DR. Sweet tuxedoes.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:11:51 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Nite nite!! See ya'll next weekend!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:11:51 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Night WidowSon
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:11:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:11:55 PM EDT] <Shiral> Have a cookie for the road, WS
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:11:57 PM EDT] <KK> Nighters, WS.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:12:07 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Very cute kitties
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:12:07 PM EDT] <bynw> night KK
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:12:13 PM EDT] * Shiral tosses WidowSon a cookie
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:12:14 PM EDT] <WidowSon> 2 cookies will do :)
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:12:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Merlin is a menace, but he is a handsome fellow. Layla is the epitome of "though she be but little, she is fierce."
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:12:20 PM EDT] <WidowSon> later
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:12:20 PM EDT] <Shiral> Okay, here's another!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:12:25 PM EDT] <WidowSon> Tanks
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:12:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Although she's also very sweet and cuddly.

[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:12:56 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Merlin looks HUGE in comparison
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:12:59 PM EDT] <Shiral> oooooo! Lovely tuxedo kitties!
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:13:03 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She just has no cares to give for the fact that Merlin is about nine times her size.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:13:24 PM EDT] <Bee> BTW, who or what is llsi50MHz?
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:13:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> A gamer person. :)
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:13:43 PM EDT] <IIsi50MHz> iisi50mhz
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:13:49 PM EDT] <bynw> other things going on ... :(
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:13:52 PM EDT] <bynw> er :)
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:14:12 PM EDT] <Shiral> Tati is always very lively and playful in the morning on the way downstairs to breakfast. Dmitri just stalks along as if to say "Don't bug me until I've had my coffee, kid!"
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:14:18 PM EDT] <Bee> hello, iisi
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:14:20 PM EDT] <Jerusha> It's probably Valerian or Feyd
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:14:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, I'm with Dmitri.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:14:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Do NOT annoy the DesertRose until she is suitably caffeinated.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:14:56 PM EDT] * IIsi50MHz hands out typefaces that don't make l and I ambiguous
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:15:05 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:15:12 PM EDT] <Shiral> On Sunday mornings, I use my BIG coffee mug so I can have a vat of it while reading the Sunday Paper
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:15:49 PM EDT] <Goatmistress> For a long time, I thought IIsi was Ilsi, like nickname for Ilsa.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:15:54 PM EDT] <KK> brb
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:16:03 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It's a trait I apparently inherited from my bio-father; I don't wake up hungry, but give me my caffeine (tea, usually) and no one will get hurt. Breakfast will happen in another hour or so after I'm out of bed and nominally awake.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:16:08 PM EDT] <Derynifank> Oops, gotta go. Hope everyone has a great week
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:16:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, g'night, Derynifank!

[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:24:52 PM EDT] <Shiral> It was the cookies, I tell you
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:25:00 PM EDT] <KK> Could be.
[Sunday, June 17, 2018] [8:25:17 PM EDT] <Shiral> Shortbread--not as innocent as it seems
