Bodil turned to the little ranger.
“Ranger Weis, we were wondering if you had any idea when the entrance hole we came down might have been created. It seems to have been made by an explosion.”

No writing today because I had a stupid idea: "hey... pictures!" So I made some pretty pictures lol, well, I tried.
On the plus side, she no longer needed to use the bathroom.

All eyes turned to the new arrival. Gregor took a step forward, which had the effect of stopping the man dead in his tracks. Sufficiently warned, the man’s eyes quickly scanned the four arrivals and then flicked back to settle on Ellie.
When the man spoke his voice held a little keening note of suppressed anxiety.

It was a fine morning, as usual. The sun was still low enough not causethe usual blistering Arizona heat.

The following morning saw only Dr. Awolowo blinking painfully, and perhaps regretfully, in the morning sunlight as he and Ranger Hancock headed out of the compound and then east towards the main settlement of the Gu-Nar. Cybil and Amy met for an early breakfast and to plan how they were going to go about visiting the various offices and conservation facilities of the expeditions that were based here.

Exuding his aire of administrative efficiency, Dwight opened the four folders on the desk in front of Hanne.

When everyone was seated Bodil found that she had Victor sitting opposite her. Whether this was by accident or by design she couldn’t be sure, but the smile he gave her raised hopes it was the latter.

TOLD U THISur voice impossible In The Wind/ She raised the knife and slit her throat. She woke and she saw the boy. The first one she killed. The boy took her by the hand and lead her to the dance floor where they danced for all eternity.

Sergeant Glasser again paused for effect. Aside from Amy and Cybil glancing nervously at each other, the Sergeant’s words were met with polite indifference from the others. Professor Hill and Doctor Awolowo were very well aware that exploration in recently radiation cleaned areas was dangerous, both had lost friends and colleagues in the past.

Vertibird flight wasn’t unfamiliar to Professor Bodil Ramsbottom-Fergusen, Hill-Davis. Nor was the noise, or the discomfort of the webbing ‘seats’, or the freezing temperatures at altitude that condensed into rain inside the fuselage as they descended. Nor was she unfamiliar with the heart pounding excitement of the prospect of a dig so far off in the semi-explored wilds of La Grande Bretagne.

A second is not a long time. But the sound of tearing air seemed to linger longer than its actual duration. Nobody moved, nobody said anything. Then the bleachers behind Bodil and Ellie exploded into laughter. The laughter then turned into a steadily growing round of applause until Poppy soon had her very own standing ovation.

Bodil spun the dial on her binoculars.
The reticule zoomed in, too much. Nose hairs don’t tell you anything. She dialled it back a bit.
Joe Spivey - Wed, 01/11/2017 - 4:32am
There was a visible relaxing around the table. As if by magic a waiter appeared and both Bodil’s and Ellie’s drinks were replaced and a fresh jug of iced water provided.

'I am Luka Fosburgh,' Luka said to the man behind the counter in the New Flagstaff Franklin Rider Officer. 'I was told you have a letter for me but it needs the payment.'
The man behind the counter looked at Luka noticing his slightly wet hair, freshly washed, he thought, looks soft, nice shine. 'Luka... yes...Luka. Something back there. I will fetch it.' He wandered to the storage area for what seemed to Luka like ten minutes but was really two, and returned with something in his hand. 'We need five blue please. The sender forgot to pay.'

Hanne was back at the window In truth she had been there most of the afternoon. As the sun drifted into late afternoon and on into evening, and as Hanne’s cup of tea was now clay cold,

Ellie and Poppy chatted happily with each other in a mix of English and the expressive sing-song language the furry little animal had used before with Gregor. Both of them used mime, too, to convey what their limited knowledge of each other’s words could not. They looked to Bodil like two infants who had met each other for the first time after the long summer school break and were animatedly sharing their holiday stories.

Although Bodil was intrigued by the procession of colourfully clad men and women descending from the belly of the ship sized aircraft, the optically magnified and electronically enhanced image settled on a creature that was easily as tall as Ellie’s bodyguard Gregor and every bit as impressively muscled. But, though it stood upright like a man the, whatever it was, was covered in a thick grey-blue fur that shimmered and flowed as the creature moved.

A glance at the crowd showed Bodil that all attention seemed to be directed to the left and down the avenue of aircraft, whoever they belonged to, towards the way she and Victor had just come from. Bodil followed their gaze, looking vaguely upwards. She expected to see, something. Vertibirds? She had seen huge ones that could carry many tons of cargo.
Joe Spivey - Thu, 01/05/2017 - 4:44am
And that pretty much killed the conversation. The potential for an embarrassing silence was dispelled when Ellie’s notebook began to beep for attention. While the head of Troy security attended to business Bodil took the opportunity to look around.

The old biker rode into Sunshine Corners as he had a hundred times before. Parking his chopper in fornt of the clubhouse.
He then slapped the dust form his leathers before entering and walked the halls, his footsteps echoing with each heavy step as he traveled to the second floor.
He found his room still the same way he had left it, and the leatherbound journal secure in its stashed location.
Joe Spivey - Wed, 01/04/2017 - 6:28am
Ellie watched the car approaching. Though her sunglasses hid her eyes, her tightly pursed lips went a long way in expressing the feeling that she was not full of the joy and happiness being demonstrated in the crowded bleachers behind her.
Hanne Berg - Tue, 01/03/2017 - 2:48pm
“Not his face !! “
Dwight looked up from his initial appraisal of the boy and cast a puzzled glance.
Joe Spivey - Tue, 01/03/2017 - 3:25am
By the time she reached the comfortable warmth and light of the outside she had pretty much regained her composure and by the time she slid into the passenger seat the panic was barely discernable in her voice.

Two men wearing dark blue overalls stepped out of a small, temporary looking single story structure and came to a halt about five metres away. They stood in that military looking way with their feet apart and hands behind their backs that stressed the ‘don’t mess with us’ image the pose was designed to project.

((Well, not really a problem, an omission. Well, not even that. I just forgot to post it. At least i think i did because I've just looked through my journal posts and I can't find it. Anyway, do you remember when I did that short series of posts about Joe in space and the weird aliens and pervy senator? Well I missed a post that went between:
