The Ongoing Adventures of Agent 012
Agent 012 arranged to have Phobus Thaw transported to the secret government hideaway located deep in the forest. Then he proceeded to spread official disinformation that Thaw had been killed trying to escape. He now felt certain that Hamlin Moneeee , despite his hired killers and his vast financial empire, could not find him and kill him. “I’m a believer” he told one told the Agency staff members of not leaving any loose ends.
With all that could be done done Agent 012 decided to go home until the research department had finished going over Moneeee’s life with a fine tooth comb. They would pull his bank account records, his telephone records, and open a computer watch on his e-mail. All of that would take time.
Arriving home 012’s wife wanted to go to the Bonnet in the Attic Flea Market because Marge from down the street said they had some superlative items there. In fact some of them might even be heirlooms. 012 didn’t put much trust in what Marge said because though she was charming she was something of a bubble head.
When they got there he was flabbergasted to discover a genuine Lone Ranger lunch box., a real antique. His whole generation had grown up watching the program that ended “who was that masked man?” It was only $3.00 so he bought it. He told his wife he was going to put it on the shelf in the recreation room or as the kids called it the wreck room. The task of keeping kids out of trouble was a lot easier when that lunch box was in use because they had good role models on TV.
When they got home he had an e-mail which said we have a problem with falling leaves. He told his wife that was accountant jargon for some numbers aren’t coming out right and they needed him at the store. In reality it meant that security at the hideaway had been breached and the place was under attack.
When he got to the Agency he discovered two men with machine guns had fired on the cabin. Of course, Thaw was kept in an underground cell so he was safe. One agent had been killed before the new super magnet defense system disarmed the two men. They were now lodged in cells next to Thaw.
The most disturbing thing is that somehow they had found the place. There had to be a leak in the Agency.
Agent 012 just knew this was not going to be his day but he did have the lunch box.
The ten word challenge- Save the Flea Market
The Falling Leaves flea market which was held every October was held to raise money for the Children’s Service Society that worked at keeping kids out of trouble , a truly superlative objective.
So Bonnie McGuire who was a fervid believer in helping kids decided to give Aunt Bessy’s bonnet in the attic to them to sell. “I’m a believer” she said to one of the staff members “and though the bonnet has been in my family for many generations I want you to have it.”
“I’m so glad” the staff member replied, “ Someone has been spreading disinformation about us and this is causing some people to hold back. Blush Limraw has accused us of being communist on his radio show based on those pamphlets. It‘s as if a masked man came and robed our kids and we can’t get an answer to the question ’who was that masked man. How do you confront people you can’t see. “
Bonnie went home and called her brother Bob down at the TV station. Two nights later the TV station did an hour special on the Society with testimonies from some of the kids that they had helped now become adults. One was , even, a Pastor. After that even Limraw backed off. The flea market went well and they raised more money than any other year with people insisting on paying more than the listed price “ to help the kids”. But they never did find out who had put out the pamphlets
The mini challenge-Watch out for Frogs
Charming David Angeeer was flabbergasted that his plan to crush the Falling Leaves flea market had failed. “ I even fooled that idiot Blush Limraw “ he thought, “ and yet I failed” He was determined to make them pay for taking his mother’s heirlooms when she offered them. He knew in his heart they should have been his. First he tried to push various government agencies on them but every investigation showed them to be squeaky clean. Then he tried spreading lies. Now he found himself deep in the forest on his way to the hut where a witch supposedly lived. He was ready to pay he her a huge sum of money to put a curse on the flea market.
She met him at the door and he was surprised to see how beautiful she looked. He had expected an old hag. He explained to her what he wanted and that he would pay generously to have it done.
When he finished his explanation she asked if he would look for some other way to reach his goal if she turned him down. He assured her he would even resort to murder if he had to because they were going to pay.
She shook her head and waved her hand. And that’s how the charming David Angeeer became a charming bull frog.
The Children’s Service Society would appreciate if you refrained from kissing frogs just in case, particularly charming frogs.
Of course the dragons were busy today you can see them HERE.
