    AH, and now bear fat and a nice bear skin rug. Someone else can eat the bear meat unless I"m really hungry, but the fat is really good for putting on my flint locks.

    In a pinch I'll eat bear, but it tastes like horse and I don't like that much either.

    3 babies and a bear skin in front of the fire for em to lay on should help through the winter.

    Then again in bear country I"m always up armed to deal with it. Hoping Mark gets to it first.

    OH OH, maybe it's a big foot LOL

    Lol! bigfoot! that would be a hoot. Chances are Tessee would make friends with it.

    I'm hoping for a bear too, for the bearskin rug for the littles.

    Thanks so much Pac!!

    The animal ate it's fill, eyes nervously darting around in the darkness. Now that he had filled his belly, he was tired and needed to sleep.

    The best place to curl up and snooze was on the porch, and that's where he went to sleep.

    The next early morning, Clora feeding Luke, Helga pouring coffee and Karl who was going after more fire wood and had his hand on the doorknob; got the fright of their lives when the huge black apparition got stiffly up to look in the window at the inside commotion.

    In the early morning darkness,The only thing white that could be seen were the sharp meat tearing eye teeth that were dangerously close to the inadequate window glass.

    Helga threw her hands up, launching the mugs she had in her hand toward Karl, who indistinctly twisted open the doorknob to get way from the flying missiles. The door swung open, hitting the dark furry animal and eliciting a growl of fierce proportions when the now flimsy and woefully inadequate door whapped the hindquarters.

    There was a very loud snarl, an even louder scream of fright from Helga who launched her self like a tennis ball throwing stick at Clora, intending to position herself between the terrifying danger and the 'princess' with her new bebe.

    Clora got halfway up from her chair, shielding tiny baby Luke from the train wreck that was happening in not so slow motion. Clora and Helga got their legs tangled in the chair legs and went down to the floor. When the large black furry animal shouldered in past Karl; knocking the portly old gent into the writhing floor mat of women, he drooled on Helga, causing her to faint with terror.

    The last words shrieked out of Helga's mouth were; "the volves have comes to kill us," and she collapsed in a dead weight on Karl, who had the air squeezed out of him and couldn't talk.

    Clora raised her head and was eyeball to sharp white teeth with vomit inducing fish breath. Luke was screaming at the upset and it was then that Clora realized it was no wolf, bear or ravenous wild animal. It was another Inky.

    Wow Inky I had forgotten all about him till you mentioned his name, Hopefully he will become as good a guard dog as his predecessor. Thanks for the chapter Pac.

    Thanks, PAC!
    It's kinda hard to work within the system when it's a septic system.

    INKY!!!!!!! YAY!!!! Much better than a bear! (although I'd still love the littles to have a rug)

    hmmm.... just realized that "Inky" shows up when needed most. Good thing the original Inky was such a "stud" so there would be plenty of 'Inky's' when needed.


    I thank ya! MUchOs!

    Thank you Pac. So nice to find a return of the clan story. Yea Inky!

    PAC, perhaps the service provider can sort it out. Around here when you call em and they come out to the house they often go above and beyond helping folk who don't know what is happening sort things out.

    Most of em can at least point you in the right direction to either sort it out yourself or find someone to help.

    I know you are in a new place, but it might help to go the the local school and talk with the principal or computer teacher and ask if some nice kid could spare the time to help you get things set up.

    It's kinda like getting kids to program VCR's back in that day.

    Now the kids know more about setting up stuff than about anyone except top end technicians.

    Those community service clubs the school has probably have a kid who would love to help, count his coup with the school, make a new friend, and maybe get some of Clora's cookies :-)

    Hope things work out for you. I know how frustrating it can be, and then you find out it was something simple like just checking or unchecking a box.

    If it is your wireless router giving you trouble, it is often that the settings on your router are not matched up with the settings on your computer and one or the other has to be changed so they match up. Trouble is that there are several possibilities that need or might need changing.

    The most common problem I find is that the encryption on the router is not matched up with the encryption on the wireless on the computer.

    just for a mental picture it is like the router (WI FI) is using fm radio and the computer is using AM radio.

    Just set both to the same and they will talk with each other.

    I would say that your ISP guy might be willing to help you out there, esp. if the modem is the router also which is the case for my Mother who uses Century Link DSL.

    I have to provide all my stuff, and If not for lots of patience and care I would never be able to keep all the different devices my kids, myself, and their friends want to link up.

    But at a distance it is almost impossible to solve it.

    Wish I could fix it. (Selfish because I love your stories, and also because I want you to have it working and for all you have done, it would be small pay back.)

    Dear Folks,

    The place where I am staying has four different Wi-Fi 'channels' and the signal seems to rotate between all four. That's been my problem. As I start to post a chapter, the signal I'm using fades and goes to another channel, leaving me 'high and dry' so to speak.

    Today I will know if I will get the house I spoke for, so soon perhaps, life will be less crazy. Thanks for waiting. Pac & her Mister.

    "Hello you Inky type dog, how did you find us?" Clora greeted the dog she just knew had to be an Inky offspring. The dog thumped his burr encrusted tail and smiled with a huge whoosh of vile smelling fish breath and drool.

    "Oh heavens," Clora laughed, "I'm certain you had Inky as a grandfather. That's something he would do. And look at your paws, you have really been traveling to have your feet in such poor condition."

    Mark's voice overrode her soft welcome. "Clora, are you or the baby hurt?" he demanded harshly.

    "No, not at all," Clora soothed. "I think Helga and Karl have a problem, perhaps if you could help Helga up, Karl could breathe."

    Karl was trying to nod, but had acute 'squash-itis' from his comfortably endowed 'little dumpling' inelegantly sprawled over his portly frame.

    Warren came into the kitchen and immediately demanded in a loud voice, "what's going on here, is that a dangerous animal?"

    Inky, (of course that was going to be his name) took a defensive stance at the loud and accusing tone and barked loudly; protecting Clora from an ill mannered intruder.

    That brought older kids running into the kitchen with shouts of delight and started the youngest three wailing loudly.

    "Good morning everybody," Clora said in a quiet voice that was immediately drowned out by the instant symphony playing out around her.

    Clora sure handled that with grace.

    I have (well had) to constantly watch myself when the older kids would start up and wake the youngers.

    Took time to learn that that is part of having kids.

    After a while of just being ourselves the new borns got used to it and slept right on through unless they needed to be awake.

    Thank goodness I never had to deal with twins, but a couple of times I did have two in diapers, one potty training and a new born.

    It has to be experienced to be understood.

    Now all the irritation has faded from memory and I only remember how very very fast those times flew by, leaving only memories.

    Thank you

    However long it took, calm order was eventually restored to the Linderman household. Sort of. The new dog was as regal and majestic as his 'fore-dog' had been and just as apt to get into trouble. The dogs paws were in poor shape, worn down and cracked and bleeding.
    Where he had come from had been a long ways away.

    Inky wasn't talking, and he had come an astonishing distance. He had escaped a large, well manicured mansion that depended on a pack of dogs such as himself to keep law and order in the sheep and goat herds they raised to feed the humans. There were so many of the completely black Great Pyrenees dogs in the pack, that the herdsman in the Frank estate never missed Coalie until Leffee mentioned it one day.

    Leffee and Tessee had become fast friends with Coalie, and when the notion had come to his dog's mind, he went in search of Tess and her family. Inky had gone to Applewood, and when the people he was seeking weren't there, he put his nose to the wind and headed North.

    Now, lying on the porch with his goal accomplished, Inky fell asleep. He was a tired dog that had used many of his resources to get to this place and he was satisfied.

    After breakfast, Karl and Mark went to dose the cow, carefully reading the instructions sent by the vet. The only one not willing to cooperate was the cow. Nobody read the instructions to her, and let her know the antibiotic would make her feel better. It was like the wild cow roping at the Calgary Stampede. When it was done and the bolus of medicine slipped down the cows throat, both Mark and Karl were 'muches happy' to turn the old gal loose.

    Mark with his barely healed arm and Karl with his not quite healed foot limped and straggled back up to the compound in sorry shape.

    Karl remarked that they had better look for a cow with 'muches better' disposition. "Those men, they roped the cow eaches time they vanted to milks, muches foolishness. The cows, she no gives enoughes milk to does that."

    Mark heartedly agreed. His arm had been pulled with enough force to re injure some of what had healed, and he was more than happy to agree with Karl and turn the cow out to pasture and to dry herself up.

    Back in the kitchen with a after breakfast cookie reward and a fresh cup of coffee, Mark was planning their next move. Karl and Helga were filling jars with fish, and Clora and Gail were bathing babies while Warren supervised.

    "Dad, may we walk up the creek and watch the salmon at the waterfall, do you think we need more fish? We'd be happy to bring more back." Milo, Teddy, Benny and Tess were already dressed for an outdoor adventure and eager to get going.

    "Take the dog with you," Clora cautioned, and as she and Mark checked with each other silently, Clora nodding to give her permission.

    "Sounds like a plan," Mark approved, "just remember to keep your wits about you, watch the dog for clues, take your 22's and have a good time."

    The "yes Sir's" echoed, and the Linderman kids went for adventure.

    Nice, thank you.

    Take the dog and your 22's. My kind of kid adventure. Pity so few kids get that opportunity these days.

    Hope your world is getting better and your "house" and "internet" stuff get worked out.

    Looking forward to watching the new / old linderman homestead come together.

    Benny was back before all the babies had been washed. "Dad!" his loud stage whisper echoed from the door, "I need to talk to you right away."

    Mark got up from his chair, winked at Clora to be amused at the dramatics, and went out on the porch.

    Benny was beckoning furiously for Mark to come away from the house. "Dad, some guy with a gun has the rest of the kids up by the waterfall. He shot the dog, and he doesn't know I was there. I stopped to pee and was late catching up with the rest of them. He punched Milo in the gut really hard and he's down on the ground."

    Instantly, Mark changed from bemused Father, to Warrior protecting his clan. "Stay here," he ordered Benny, as he strode to the house.

    "Lock down," he shouted as he motioned Warren to grab a gun and follow. Prearranged with Karl, the nest of trailers was locked and secured to the best of their ability. Gail and Clora went to the semi-secure basement with the babies while Helga got together what they would need to keep the infants quiet and happy.

    Rifles in hand, Warren was coldly as business like as his son. Mark grabbed Benny and carried the youngster on his back, Benny hanging on like a monkey. They went up the valley toward the waterfall, fading in and out of the thick underbrush along the base of the thick rock wall. Slowly, they were close to the sound of the falling water when Mark stopped.

    Panting slightly from the run, Mark gently set Benny on the ground. "Tell us where they were located when you left," he asked as he watched Benny shiver.

    "On the other side of the creek, where the pool is the deepest; we were watching the fish," Benny whispered low.

    Warren caught up to the two of them, out of breath. Mark told Benny to stay hidden, but watch them and if he spotted any other men, to shoot at them but be sure of his target.

    Warren was frowning at the tremendous responsibility Mark was giving Benny, but was too out of wind to protest.

    Goodness! I do hope it is not something serious and that Inky is only wounded, not dead. They need that dog. How can they possibly have any enemies left?

    There will be peace in the valley and Mark will see to it....

    How many new graves will nourish the soil????

    The family needs remote sensing equipment and cameras to keep the family safe....

    So that the family knows when the enemy is there before the enemy knows they know....

    Inky is just knocked out.... A ricochet off his thick head....

    Thanks Pac....
