Dr Finlay’s Walking Stick: Josh the Guerilla Gardener

Fin’s Thirtieth Adventure

May 30th 2017

National Walking Month

Six Bombs prepared, five launched and one delivered to the Guerilla Gardener of the Future.

Night was closing in, even in The Place Where Time Stands Still darkness creeps in to test the resilience of the strongest souls.

Their work now was done, now only Time itself would tell them if they, the children of Holly Bush School had saved the Planet.

Fin, Fiona, Dr Finlay and Little Fin, sat back exhausted.  Dr Finlay’s face was pale and he would not see out the month but he would live to tell if they had been successful.

What of Josh their newest and most wonderful of friends, he had found the cards they had sent, Create the World, and had Faith, the Second of the three great values, that he would help them in their purpose.  Freedom for all, the insects, the animals, the trees, the birds and the hearts that beat throughout the pulsating planet.

Now all they could do was wait and perhaps imagine what paradise might look like.

Dr Finlay’s Walking Stick: The Sting of the Killer Queen

Fin’s Twenty Ninth Adventure

The Seed Bombs are Ready

May 29th 2017

National Walking Month

 

The Place Where Time Stands Still was full of action, the children of Holly Bush School protecting the trees and fruit of the future from the enemies from the evil empire.

But something was badly wrong, Dr Finlay was limping, “What is it Dr Finlay?” asked Fin nervously.

“Its nothing” lied Dr Finlay before collapsing in a heap.

“What is it?” repeated Fin.

“She stung me, the Killer Queen stung me.” He gasped as he struggled for breath.

“What does that mean?” questioned a rather troubled Fin.

“It means I only have moments to live” replied Dr Finlay.

Fin sat down trying to understand what was happening.

“You must help me defeat this evil before I die” said Dr Finlay.

The month is closing out, the druids can help us, Mimsy can help us but we must launch the Seedbombs tonight, before it is too late.”

Dr Finlay’s Walking Stick: The Fin Family Go SeedBombing

Fin’s Twenty Eighth Adventure

Can we save the World?

May 28th 2017

National Walking Month

 

Time was racing away, the sands of time were always falling but not in The Place Where Time Stands Still.

At least here there was Hope one of the three great saviours and Fin, Fiona, Dr Finlay and……Little Fin!

Somehow, somewhere Little Fin had joined them, wanting to save the world like his mother and father.

28 book wine

Inspired by a lady who despised wastelands and loved nature they set about the task of preparing their seedbombs.

The World was being taken over by hate and fear they needed the words of wise men to keep them trying.

Jonathan Porritt, who had visited their home,
“It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.”

Kenny Mackay, “99% of people don’t think this way.”

Jesus Christ, “Love thy neighbour as thyself.”

Buddha, “We are all Buddha’s from the beginning.”

Yoda, “Always in motion is the future.”

Henry Moore, “I want to contribute.”

 

Their mission clear, the task set out, they began to make their SeedBombs.

28 seed bombs

Cluster bombs of seeds in clay to stick together and compost for growth they would be launched tomorrow.
