KNIGHTS

blog photo 148 knightsWHAT IT IS

There are not many knights left in the world, not real knights like Feather and Hammer who protect a realm and pledge allegiance to a being whose powers are so far beyond that of mere mortals, that most humans deny the very existence of such an entity.

But such a creature exists in the fairy on Ellesmere Island in the high arctic and when she decided to leave her lair on an excursion to the south, she beckoned Feather and Hammer for guidance and protection. The trio set out on the winter solstice with the purpose of finding a teddy bear named Ellie and granting her the knowledge key that would ensure her success in her upcoming university interviews.

WHAT IT IS NOT

Cricket and Sapphire’s coyote calling explosion and the bearded dragon scare, led them to beat a hasty retreat from the woodlot south of Ellwood City to Beaver Falls where they learned their coyote calling partners were in a minor traffic accident with a beat up Chevy van carrying a bunch of frogs heading for Penn State University. The story goes that their friends were driving along the 351 near the Beaver River when a pair of knights chasing a slow moving van appeared just in front of them. Both vehicles swerved from the center line and slipped off the road. The knights liberated the frogs and escorted them to the river, where a small horse and a blind man helped them cross to the other side.
