14 Oct 2018

The camera panned over the grounds of the botanical garden. Leaves of various colors had begun to fall from the trees. Several Collie dogs and children were romping about while several adults set up a picnic supper. As the camera fell on them, people waved.

So, Channel KIDS viewers, here we are at the Rhydin Botanical Garden. I think it's the prettiest building Da has ever worked on. There's a nip in the air or as my Gran says, "It's brisk." It's warm enough for a picnic today, so, a bunch of us are out here to enjoy it and the sunset before the first snow falls.

Colleen and Alinar are out here playing in the leaves with all the dogs. Diamond is here, too, but she's enjoying a sunny perch in one of the trees. That kitty's not fooling me with that one eye cracked open thing. She's watching over my little cousins like she always does. She leaves the running after them to Aunt Rhi, Uncle Gory, and Riddle II. I've seen her dive down and chase critters away from the kids. What she does after the beasties are away from the kids, I don't know, but I expect she has a tasty snack. Some day, I might just ask her. I'm almost fluent in Cat, but as Aunt Ariana pointed out, there are a lot of dialects just like with people.

Excited laughter came from across the way and the camera panned to find Brian Tur Gairdin using his parents' hands and arms for a swing. Maggie laughed, too.

Hey, that looks like fun! Brian's always a happy kid. Even he when started to get teeth, he wasn't grumpy! He might be walking by Winterfest; I hope he doesn't try to climb the tree! Rick did that, we have the pictures to prove it!

A sizzling sound came from one of the built in grills in the picnic grove.
You know what that sound is? It's hamburgers being cooked with Da's own seasoning recipe.

So, from the World According to Maggie, I wish you a Merry Samhain, Happy Halloween, and a terrifying Fright Night! For the adults in the audience, Mid-Autumn Festival celebration is called the Golden Gala bring held at the Golden Quay. Meanwhile, I'll be on stage with the Shanachie Theater Company until the twentieth of October in Six Characters in Search of an Author!

January 2019 - Channel KIDS broadcast

The camera clicked on and showed an evening view of the snow covered street in front of Harker's Academy. The camera and its user were in a second story window across the street.

So, this is what a Snowpaclyse looks like! Mama made sure all the students got home safely, yesterday, before the big snowblower in the sky got into high gear. If you're going to be stuck because of snow, over a restaurant is good place to be! Aunt Nikki has a big apartment on the second floor with guest rooms. The third floor has sleeping rooms and bathrooms. After Hannibal, she decided to use the space like this because, sometimes, she has us kids over and some of the people that work for her have a long way to get home and are safer staying put. Some went home early, Mama took them all over the city as the Rover is built for snow and rough ground. We stayed with Aunt Nikki while the driving was going on.

I called Da and Uncle Bertie to let them know where we are staying. The ferry to our island stopped running early because of the weather. It's a good thing we have a fireplace at home because if the heater goes out, a good fire will keep part of the house warm. Mama said the big boys would be fine and, if the heat goes out, there are sleeping bags to toss on the floor near the fireplace. There's plenty of food in cans in the pantry and a back up system for the fridge and freezer to keep working.

The restaurant was open for the afternoon and for dinner time. There was a sign up that only soups, salads, sandwiches, and nonalcoholic drinks were being served. They were also for free, so I don't think anyone was complaining. The staff people that stayed overnight had the choice of working or staying up in the cozy rooms. Aunt Nikki said they would get double pay like they do if they ask for holiday work. I got to help wait on tables and even earned some tips money! Melly did, too! She came over from next door. Aunt Chelle closed her office and came over to spend time with us. We all had supper upstairs after closing time.

We're going build a snowman tomorrow! Have fun with your snowtime, but remember to dress warmly when you go outside!

The camera panned around the room as a bunch of Maggie's relatives and restaurant staff were chatting. The camera clicked off.
