*enjoying a whiskey between pulls at the cobb*

Vampires weren't a worry in them early days.  They came later, when the towns were tamed and civilized.

*puff*

Skin-walkers were the great threat then.  The witches, sometimes driven from the land of the Navajo, were dangerous beasts that could devour a troop of men in a single night under the Comanche Moon.  The skin-walkers were of those few that were feared by even the fierce Buffalo Hump.

*puff...puff*

In fact, *puff*, on the plains during one of our early battles with the chief we were set on by no less than 3 skin-walkers.  To our delight and dismay the great chief and his bucks fought alongside us that horrific night.

*puff*

I recollect that we, all of us rangers, could not imagine that there could be worse horrors than those of Buffalo Hump and his war party.  If anything was learned while we struggled to survive, let alone tame, that wild Trans Pecos it was that no matter the horrors you'd suffered and seen, always there was worse.

*puff*

To be forced without chance of argument to do battle alongside this monster of a man who'd scalped good men of ours not a fortnight before was less terrifying an enterprise than to face those witch-people.

*puff*

Oh brilliant, any onions in it? It needs onions.
Yes, miss Adelaide- you are in trouble. trouble, danger... the fear of death! we are all in terrible danger!
Buffalo hump? Sounds a bit awkward that...
But yes, the danger of death- eternal death..and yet, a waking death. They are all around us, vampires. Beware!

Ooh, pie! I can do pie! Could someone point me in the direction of the kitchen...do we have fresh peaches, by chance?

Your stories are all so fascinating! I am sorry if they bring sadness from the past. I did not mean for you to rehash such things. I wish I could share in some of your adventures...sadly, I've never even left home!

In the same way that I wonder if dyslexic zombies hunger for 'BRIANS', do dull vampires hanker after virginal blands?

Oh Herr Doktor, what would we do without your wit?

Ms Kim, there's still time, I'm sure, perhaps and adventure down the timelines with myself awaits? But first, pie. And maybe some more drinks.

Has anyone seen the band recently? I've been hankering after some good music ever since I got back from 1999, turn of the millennium was not the best time for music.

My dear, it could be the alcohol speaking, but methinks you may wish to rephrase that... 

I know it gave ME the wrong impression! Wink

I say, too right. This wallpaper is dreadful. Perhaps more bourbon will clear that up! Smiley

Here we are. What is the problem with that wallpaper? It is truly horrible.

It's like saying when you try to extrapolate the end of the universe, you say, if the universe is indeed infinite, then how - what does that mean? How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what's stopping it, and what's behind what's stopping it? So, what's the end, you know, is my question to you."

*Regards the wallpaper with a thoughtful, considering eye, then realizes he's colorblind, so he's unsure what the problem is*

I mean, apart from the random splotches of...  well, they really do look like someone had a bit too much, couldn't take it, and...  well, you know the rest...

I'm not sure what's wrong with the color though-EVERYTHING looks messed up to me!
