“The Rescue of Simon & Simone”


Description from Little Round Chick: A stunned and silent Simone stands on the deck of the tramp freighter Fredericka's Folly while Simon searches for the radio room or some sort of communication device. Suddenly Simone spots a cloud of dust moving down the dirt road. She shouts for Simon to come and see what's causing it. Simon swings down from a ladder landing beside Simone. She points to the cloud of dust and asks if he can tell what it is. The cloud continues toward the ship partially obscuring an unknown type of vehicle. As it comes closer they can see it is a car. It's a Magnificent Maroon Mercedes with 22k gold trim. Emblazoned upon the door is the Golden Sun of the National Nosy News. Who is driving the car? Surely it isn't that pesky reporter Brave Little Mermaid. Good Grief! It's Marne Mouse wearing a lovely lavender suit and a jaunty beret. What is she doing in the NNN news car? How did she get to the boonies in South America? And what is that tune she is singing....? "Here I come to save the day..."

    First of all: I love this Pick! I design so often with silver or copper, that I seem to forget how pretty gold can be with the picks. This is great, esp. since you put the K & M Nuggets with the Muscovite. Love It!!! Fav!!!
    And now for the story: This is so much fun! Thanks for the new chapter. Sooo…is Marne the new Mighty Mouse? LOL

    “It was a dark and stormy night…”Kitty Girl. I guess I have a weird brain and have spent too many years doing my own thing. BTW when you get to my age you have a lot of experience with the strangeness of people and life. Lots of books under my belt, too.

    Well, Happy Chick, some one has to “…save the day,” and I don’t see any conventional heroes stepping up to do it. Maybe Marne is from a parallel universe where Mighty Mouse doesn’t exist. Hmmmmmm what a novel plot…..

    Hey! MM always exists! He just had a secret liason and had a daughter who has grown up to inherit her daddy’s mission—and music! LOL :D

    Is that how you spell “liason”? My spell check says it is wrong. :?

    Da da da dannnnnnn!!!

    If she is a newsperson and a superhero (shades of Clark Kent), I am not sure if she is there to rescue them or to lock them up! Guess it all depends on her true, although possibly secret, identity.

    …liaison…Just looked it up in my Funk and Wagnalls Desk Dictionary volume 1. I always have a dictionary handy cause I can’t spell worth diddly squat. They bought me shoes and sent me to school and I still can’t spell worth a hoot.

  13. Little Round Chick
    Little Round Chick says:

    I hope all of you who are hooked on the Saga of Simon and Simone realize this tale is primarily written on the fly frequently using your questions and suggestions as a starting point for the next adventure or misadventure as the case may be. The suggestion of a secret liaison between MM and some femme fatale (sp) will probably show up some where very soon.
