Black was the colour 

Grey was the knife,

Red was the blood

What was the trouble and strife?

That came at the witching hour!

The clock showed 10:16 , that was a  strange time. The day before, the front door knocked.

A bigerknee was on the other side ,

It smiled and said hello,

The turned an ran up a slide.

These things happen at sixteen minutes past 10

The dragon landed on Europa, it had been away a long time.

But it made its presence felt, toppling the bear with a flick of its tail.

Its confident stride dented by its older enemy of George. But the pride of the dragon was strong and will and bitter determination saw it brush of the defeat!

Crushing under its foot the strong lion of Europa. But the fight and flight had been long, the wolves began to circle.

In the end the brave dragon was stopped, but left to fly home to heal its battle scars vowing to comeback and rule supreme in the land of the Bear

Only five days left to go

Six if you include today!

On this 95th day in a row?

The path he was on finally ended at this T junction. But which way to go left or right?

Niether direction looked appealing, as he starred towards his right he could see the road bend and wave up a hill and over the brow to well whatever was there.

Left was a flatter past with woods on either side about 3 miles away, then road dipped down and was gone. 

About 6 yards on the right of the left side of the road was a gap in the wall and a long wooden post with a broken sign.


“Yes I will go left.”

Well if in doubt go left was his old boss’ motto.

Reaching the style and broken post, he scanned the vegetation, buried in the deep bramble bush was a broken plank of wood.

Pulling it carefully out he saw the lets carved into it.

Aled was stunned, he looked at the words then at the piece of wood still attached to the post. There was a D clearly on view……
