**Look who`se come for dinner...Part II*

As news travels rather quickly in the Trailer Park environs, word of Shrek and Snow White`s planned debauchery ran like wildfire.

It had made it`s way around the camper sites for a full three revolutions before Mark Trail could tight-lace his Doc Martins and hop in the big red Jeep.

His hounds and tactical gear were all stowed in back….As Mark was wont to say: “A place for everything and everything in its place”

Mark had many other sayings, yet was down to just a handful of acquaintances that would still tolerate listening to them

Mark’s niece, Patricia, would be coming along tonight, literally riding shotgun.Patricia was painfully aware that she was “overscale”….but deep inside, even she knew that scale adherence, like common courtesy and personal grooming, held no sway in the Snow/Shrek way of life

They went in. They did what had to be done

When questioned later at an impromptu news conference, Trade was asked why only three elves had been rescued when aerial reconnaissance had indicated a larger presence. Mark wearily explained, for the umpteenth time : “we got what looked to be one of each “kind”  “y`know,so they wouldn’t go extinct” No mention was made regarding the “mishap” with Mark`s wolfhound, nor would it EVER be spoken of.

In a rare display of prideful bravado, Mark actually flashed the “O” symbol at the bevy of local newshounds who had come out for the story. ”What’s that dang fool doin` with his hand like that” asked McGillatownski, a veteran newsman who had carried ink-smudges longer than Trail had been alive

“Thinks he’s Omnipotent” explained cub reporter Cubby Thompson, hoping to gain favor with Gill, yet barely meriting a scowl for his efforts

It would appear that Patricia had learned to live with being overscale but riding shotgun still had her nervous. Ah the perils of being a figment of JBs mind.

Riveting stuff JB.  So courageous of Mark to put down his pipe and take the Liberty to do something about this Gustatorial Gnasher.

Jeez JB....I miss my meds for one day, make a minor indiscretion in art class and all of a sudden I'm the problem child!  At least I removed the paper from the Crayolas; I do have some social graces!

Relax JB...what I meant was the Mark Trade and Mickey Rodent exposure explains the base of quality in your submissions. Smile

Ah yes, I do indeed recall discussing this deeply influential publication, complete with its accordion-folding last page containing a surprising alternative statement. What impressed me in particular was my role model and perennial favorite, Mr. Roger Kaputnick......always dapper in his GQ togs and ascot.  Like our other hero Mark Trail, Roger enjoyed a cerebral conversation; pipe clenched in his teeth for effect.
