THOR’S WORLD TOUR… The Departure

Somewhere on a small island in the Great Pacific Northwest… The Departure

I must be off to a place called The Emerald City on the morrow.  I have heard there are Witches there, both good and bad.  The good ones are hot, I was informed, so if I hath to meet a Witch, I hope she is a good one.  Oh… what if I am being sent to a Witch… a bad one?  Would the writer with the lilac hair be so cruel?  Oh, yes… I said “Lilac”.  My host has something they call ‘photographic evidence’ and showed me this…

Seeing her visage brings back the memories of a night long ago when this world tour thing started.  Here I was, having fun playing with her son and daughter, waiting for my next chance to save the human’s world, and one night she takes me to a den of iniquity filled with lusty maidens of exotic scents.  My excitement soon turned to fear as a furious squealing and shrieking ensued with such frantic pawing of my person.  Each one had to have her turn twisting and turning my body and looking under my cape.  Telling them I was the God of Thunder only made it worse.  What I couldn’t figure out, was that they were all calling me Chris!  I soon learned that I would be forced to visit each one of them, and they are all writers!  And, that was only the start.  I still carry a portrait in my cape of that fateful night…

I was given this as a memento when I visited my bosom buddy and her little white dog, in someplace called Colorado.  That is her on thy right… one guess who is on thy left.  It is nice to be loved, but this whole Chris thing has me perplexed.  So that is how this whole affair started.  My host is preparing another coffin, he calls it a shipping container,  for the morrow.   But first I plan to be checking on a curious sight I saw in the village.  I passed a garish building with a poster of a flying man in a red cape like mine…

 I enter the building behind some small humans and my senses are immediately assaulted with the heady scent of butter.  I am curious to see if he is one of the Avengers.  I have not heard of him, but he is quite handsome and I wonder if the female writers will be sending him on a tour.  It is quite dark inside, filled with little humans making awful chewing and smacking sounds.  The wall soon bursts with light and comes alive.  I am not sure what is happening, but it is loud and exciting.  The man in the red cape soon appears and I realize how comic his appearance, and what an impostor he proves to be, Man of Steel indeed.  He is a Fairy Tale… A Fraud!  I stand and cry “I Am The God Of Thunder… Bow Down Before Me!!!”  I am quickly shushed and ushered outside.

So it is with heavy heart that I must take my leave from this perplexing island.  My stay has been enjoyable, and I am curious to see the color of the nail polish on the fingers that next open my ‘shipping container’.  My only hope is that she has a girl-child with friends.  Or maybe it will be Witch or a Wizard instead and I must wield the mighty Mjollnir!  I am The God of Thunder and the God of Earth!!!

Editor’s note:  From the Sheriff’s Log in the ‘Journal of the San Juans’…6/23 ~  Deputies across San Juan Island have been on alert for a small man, dressed in an eccentric costume, creating a public nuisance and harassing citizens. He suddenly appears and forces them to bow down before him.  He has some type of weapon described as resembling a mallet.  He has also been sighted on Orcas Island previously.  It is known that he has been evicted from Herb’s Tavern, The Palace Theater, McMillan’s Dinning Room and The Hungry Clam.  The Washington State Ferry System and the Coast Guard have been put on alert, and automobiles leaving the island will be searched.  He will be apprehended.

June 24, 2013 ~  In recognizing his efforts in saving the world, a grateful nation arranges for an agency of the federal government to transport Thor off the Island.

THOR’S WORLD TOUR… Paradise Found!

P1010393

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!  

 

P1010351                P1010354               P1010352

 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!!!  

P1010380

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.  

P1010364

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.

P1010369         P1010368               P1010370

He shares something he calls ‘his tunes’ with me… I do not know what to think, but try to stay polite.

P1010366

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. 

P1010360

 He tells me he knows Argyle well and of this cousin I seek.                                         

Eureka… Praise the Gods… Valhalla found! 

P1010393

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.

P1010395

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…

P1010398            P1010402             P1010404

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. 

P1010407

I quickly take my leave, telling the Barbies “I Shall Return!”  Hopeful that tomorrow… the land of Afterglow, and ‘The Mausoleum’.

To be continued…

THOR’S WORLD TOUR… Day Trip to the Magical Isle

P1010340

Somewhere on a small island in the Great Pacific Northwest…. Day trip to the Magical Isle

“Away, damn you Loki.  Take Skidbladnir and begone!  My beloved Sif, what has he done?  Why is it always about the hair?  Now yours is no more.  My Wife!  I want my wife!  Oh Pink One, why do you keep me from her?”  I am roused from a fitful sleep with a curt “Come on, we’re late for the red-eye!”  I find out later, that being ‘late for the red-eye’ is a proud tradition on this island.  The only ferry I want to be late for is the one on the Styx, but then I’m not Greek so I guess it won’t matter.  We head for the sea in the human’s automobile.  I have been in many on this road trip, and this is by far the finest, as there are no foul odors from the small humans and their pets.  It is also neat, without the clutter of the white cups with green mermaids that seem to cover the floor of all the other’s automobiles.  Like that woman in Southern California with the tiny odious boy-child who would not ‘bow down before me’.  The worst adversary I have faced  thus far… It was luck to escape with my life.  ‘Bite Eyeball’, indeed!

The sun is rising and the beast comes into view.  I stand ready to fend it off at the first sign of trouble, as it is as fearsomely ugly as assumed.

P1010310

Into the belly of the beast we plunge.  A strange rumbling ensues and we push-off into the sea, headed for Orcas Island.

P1010325

 I wave good-by to the human’s village in the harbor, with high hopes of finding a link to Asgard on the magical isle.

P1010312

We approach the island and the time has come to find these nobel artists and lovers of the earth.  Perhaps they will be of assistance in my quest. 

P1010347

While the human is busy, I take leave to explore.  I find that the artists I meet are interested in selling their wares and no nothing of Asgard.  All the friends of the earth I encounter are sputtering about organics and  preoccupied in hugging trees… not at all what I expected.  I head back and find myself on a road with alarming signs proclaiming  No Trespassing!  Do they not know I am the God of Thunder?  I find myself taken captive and tied up with other prisoners.

P1010352

“Have you been here long?” I say.  “Oh yes.  Many years,  for us there is no hope.  Save yourself Thor.  What you seek is on the island you just left.  You must find… The Mausoleum!”  I thank the maiden with the once red hair and breaking my bonds with The Mighty Hammer!  I go in search of my human friend to ask about this Mausoleum.
