Little Sally drug the kitchen chair across the linoleum, spoon in hand. She was positive she had seen a Ben & Jerry’s container when Grandmother had been putting away the groceries. She had been to market, that’s what she called it, market. Mother and everyone else she knew said going to the grocery store.
Little Sally did not like Mother’s new refrigerator. At all. She desperately wanted the old one back. She did like playing with the water thing on the door, and popping out ice cubes. But this freezer was on the top. What was up with that?

Somewhere on a small island in the Great Pacific Northwest…. Paradise found!
After being moved about and held captive with many poor souls, I remind the evil Tie-Dyed Witches that I am The God of Thunder! Promising the Pooh family I won’t forget them I wield the Mighty Hammer and break free!
I head to the boat for a return to seek out this ‘Mausoleum’ I have heard tell about. My host, not wishing to pay the exorbitant ferry rate for ‘Gods’ decides to smuggle me aboard… Oh The Indignity!!!
Once on ship, I go in search of food and drink, as my energy level has been depleted in my struggle with the evil witches. I find the perfect thing and enter the Monster Hall… It is quite cold.
A quick blow of The Mighty Hammer releases a putrid spray of a sticky foam, completely engulfing the air-conditioned chamber. I find myself quickly evicted from the cafeteria. A kindly family takes pity on my circumstances, bathes me and gives me sustenance. After chatting, the man-boy tells me of a cousin who may be able to help me in ‘the ladies department’. He tells me to find the Land of Argyle and ask for Ula. They warn me not to wake the Sleeping Lion as I leave the table… I step very carefully.
He shares something he calls ‘his tunes’ with me… I do not know what to think, but try to stay polite.
My host treats me to something called ‘Ice Cream Cone’, and promises me we will go to the Land of Afterglow, where dwells ‘The Mausoleum”, on the morrow.
He tells me he knows Argyle well and of this cousin I seek.
Eureka… Praise the Gods… Valhalla found!
My new friend Ula has Barbies in Abundance. A pink haired beauty invites me for a drive in her automobile, which I quickly accept, hoping she knows Debra, my Pink Haired Mistress.
We are soon beset upon by a fearsome beast! I confront the evil monster and announce that I am the God of Thunder! Methinks the beast is not impressed and I am forced I do battle with my Mighty Hammer when the varmint attacks…
Instead of my saving the Pink Haired Maiden, the giantess Ula, upon hearing the commotion, arrives to save us both. I fear she must be part sorceress, for she quickly subdued the monster by putting it to sleep. She releases me from its fearsome grasp.
I quickly take my leave, telling the Barbies “I Shall Return!” Hopeful that tomorrow… the land of Afterglow, and ‘The Mausoleum’.
