Why Schwarz’s Directions Are Bad

Mr. Magi was in a hurry. You could tell, because his hat wasn’t straight, he was a bit flushed, and his bangs were messed up.

Schwarz,” he said. “You wouldn’t know how to get to the forest with the big tree, would you?”

Schwarz thought for a moment. Then, he began:

“First, climb this mountain, chickit.”

“Then,” he continued, “you’ll  come to this cave. Go through it.”

“Once you’re through the cave…”

“You’ll come out in a sandy place.”

“March for about 200 miles. Then, stop and take a drink. You’ll be thirsty by then; I was. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah!”

“Then, slide down Penguin Hill–which you’ll come to after walking for a mile–”

“Swim for five miles, and…you’re there! The big tree.”

Mr. Magi wasn’t so sure. “That is a trip. Well…are you positively sure?”

“Just did it yesterday,” Schwarz returned. “Chickit!”

And Mr. Magi left.

He hasn’t been around for a while.

    Bangs! I wouldn’t have guessed Mr. Magi had bangs. I’m horrid at directions, even with maps or GPS I still get lost.

    Poor dude. I imagine there is a much easier route to the big tree, yes?

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 13:06

      Me too! *laughs* Must be the hazy mind, Hazy. He did have bangs! What do you make of bangs?

      *nods* Yes, I’d think so. I mean, I wouldn’t have went!

      • 3 Hazy December 16, 2014 at 14:37

        Well, I have bangs *laughs* so I must say I like them!

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke December 16, 2014 at 16:19

        There you are! And I do, too!

      • 5 Hazy December 21, 2014 at 13:30

        Neatio! *highfives*

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke December 21, 2014 at 23:20

        *highfives*

  2. 7 Bethy October 6, 2014 at 15:43

    I liked those directions. Sounds like they would lead to an adventure.

    • 8 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:48

      They would. And…bears!

      • 9 Bethy October 9, 2014 at 13:29

        Stuffed bears? I sleep with a stuffed bear.

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke October 9, 2014 at 19:43

        Really? Nice!

      • 11 Bethy October 10, 2014 at 14:05

        It is nice. Except when the Princess steals it. For some reason my stuffed bear is better then her stuffed bear, stuffed frog, stuffed doll, stuffed horse, and stuffed ladybug put together.

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke October 10, 2014 at 14:15

        *laughs* That’s probably because she can’t really have it.

      • 13 Bethy October 10, 2014 at 14:30

        How wise you are. I do let her borrow it for naps. Because naps are super duper super important.

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke October 13, 2014 at 12:22

        You know, I should take some naps.

      • 15 Bethy October 13, 2014 at 13:05

        Oh yes! Days are much better with 15 or 20 minutes of shut eye. Very energizing.

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke October 13, 2014 at 22:39

        It sure is!

  3. 17 Lady Cheetah October 6, 2014 at 14:27

    Excellent directions to get your enemy lost, and to think, no GPS is needed.

    • 18 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:38

      *laughing* What a wicked way to look at things! But…did Schwarz mean it that way? He might have.

      • 19 Lady Cheetah October 6, 2014 at 21:41

        Schwarz has yet to show any malicious intent but because he is so likeable, it is hard to tell.

      • 20 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 12:53

        He’s likable like Mr. R.

  4. 21 Catherine October 4, 2014 at 16:12

    Wow. I wouldn’t follow those directions if I was Mr. Magi. Why did he?

    I also really like the cloud in the first picture!

    • 22 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 18:01

      I’m not sure. He shouldn’t have. I think he must have been silly in the head that day.

      That’s me, Catherine!

      • 23 Catherine October 6, 2014 at 13:59

        Really? Wow. (it would be fun to be a cloud.) It’s a very cute cloud.

        Can the professor turn into anything he wants?

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:34

        It is fun… Oh dear. But the professor is ugly…so…can it be me?

        Rats. I wish I could. There must be a secret to it.

      • 25 Catherine October 8, 2014 at 00:57

        I think so! There’s no reason why not, really.

        It would be rather fun…I wish I could, too. We really must find out what the secret is.

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2014 at 12:43

        Well, good then. That’s me–officially. That and the shrub.

        We need to. It’s going to be vexing, though.

      • 27 Catherine October 11, 2014 at 02:02

        Ah, yes. And you were a fish once, too, if I remember correctly? :)

        I just hope it won’t be TOO vexing. Because then it might not be worth all the vexation.

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke October 13, 2014 at 12:30

        *Laughs* Was I? I can’t keep track of such things, I fear. *blushes*

        Good point.

      • 29 Catherine October 14, 2014 at 04:56

        *laughing* Well, I imagine it’s hard to keep track of what things one can turn into, especially if there are a lot. Even if there are only two or three.

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke October 14, 2014 at 12:14

        *nods* Definitely! Of course…maybe I’m just a bit insane, too.

  5. 31 Debbie October 3, 2014 at 14:19

    Poor Mr. Magi — sounds as if he’s in for a LONG journey (perhaps there’s a shortcut??) I’m with Walt — I do love that smiley cloud in your first picture. I’ve never seen a cloud smile before. That must only happen in the PL, right?!

    • 32 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:48

      I would think so. Wouldn’t you say it looks like the professor?

  6. 33 L. Marie October 3, 2014 at 14:01

    Remind me never to ask Schwarz for directions to the grocery store. I’d never get a meal.

    • 34 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:42

      *laughing* Imagine! Though, I’m sure he’d go shopping for you, you know.

  7. 35 lifeconfusions October 3, 2014 at 11:51

    Nice way to get rid of him ! What an evil genius you are, you might even surpass me ! ;) :P

    • 36 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:43

      Oh no! You’re an evil genius?

      • 37 lifeconfusions October 3, 2014 at 19:11

        I don’t know about genius but evil yeah :P

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:50

        *laughs* You can be one if you want.

  8. 39 Simply Skeptical October 2, 2014 at 22:29

    Well and I suppose he’ll be gone awhile with that journey before him chickit! Laughing lots enjoyed the trek tale PL style.

    • 40 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:41

      Oh, he’ll be gone for months. Which will be a good thing for the PL’ers!

  9. 41 The Lite Rider October 2, 2014 at 20:24

    I hope Mr. Magi didn’t actually follow those …. directions (such as they were). There had to be a shorter way!

    • 42 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:35

      Yes, right? That’s what I was thinking. But I’m not sure why he would even set out. Sometimes, you know. Mr. Magi lacks…discriminating wit.

  10. 43 walt walker October 2, 2014 at 17:52

    I like the smiley cloud. If I go there, will I see it?

    • 44 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:58

      Depends. Will you be looking for it? He’s shy, you know.

      • 45 walt walker October 2, 2014 at 20:35

        No, I only seem to find things when I’m not looking for them.

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:37

        Then, Walt, you’d get to see him. Would you photo him with your new camera?

      • 47 walt walker October 3, 2014 at 12:40

        I would probably wait for him to take a selfie and then photobomb it.

      • 48 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:43

        *laughing* You’re always so creative about such things. Now that just might make him a bit cranky.

  11. 49 icedmocha34 October 2, 2014 at 17:52

    I like the smiley face in the cloud in the first picture!! : )
    “A smile is a curse that sets a lot of things straight.”

    • 50 icedmocha34 October 2, 2014 at 17:53

      Curve, I meant curve. *facedesk*

      • 51 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:58

        Oh…I was wondering about that. But I like curse better.

      • 52 icedmocha34 October 2, 2014 at 18:01

        It wouldn’t let me edit my comment!! WTHECK?!?

      • 53 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 18:12

        3 cookies and I’ll fix it for you.

      • 54 icedmocha34 October 2, 2014 at 18:17

        Deal. I’m kinda full from spaghetti anyway. :D

      • 55 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:30

        Nice!

      • 56 Micah Kipfer October 5, 2014 at 12:28

        You’re only able to do that on your own blog.

      • 57 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 18:04

        But why?

      • 58 Micah Kipfer October 5, 2014 at 22:46

        I don’t know. Let’s picket.

      • 59 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 12:27

        Can I hold a sign?

      • 60 Micah Kipfer October 7, 2014 at 19:59

        Yes. I think it would be neat to picket here:
        http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_writing_challenge/the-unreliable-narrator/
        This is my sign:

      • 61 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 20:04

        I love your sign. What can mine say?

      • 62 Micah Kipfer October 8, 2014 at 19:56

        Maybe the word “edit” crossed out in a red circle, which is in another red crossy circle.

      • 63 Professor VJ Duke October 9, 2014 at 12:50

        Now that would be quite cool looking. But I’m afraid it’d be hard to design.

      • 64 Micah Kipfer October 11, 2014 at 14:59

        It really wasn’t.

      • 65 Professor VJ Duke October 13, 2014 at 12:30

        Now that’s impressive. And now my sign.

      • 66 Micah Kipfer October 13, 2014 at 13:19

        All for the revolution!

      • 67 Professor VJ Duke October 13, 2014 at 22:39

        *bows*

      • 68 icedmocha34 October 7, 2014 at 19:42

        ARGH!!!

      • 69 Micah Kipfer October 7, 2014 at 20:03

        You can picket with me and the Professor here if you like:

    • 70 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:58

      But what’s the difference between a smile and frown?

      • 71 icedmocha34 October 2, 2014 at 18:00

        It takes a lot more facial muscles to frown than to smile! : )

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 18:12

        Seriously? Then I bet Vin Diesel frowns all the time. Just for the muscles’ sake.

      • 73 icedmocha34 October 2, 2014 at 18:16

        Haha, yeah, I guess he does. I smile too much…that explains a lot then… :D

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:29

        So do I. And it’s a good thing! Don’t stop doing it. (Only stop smiling when you’re cruel.)

      • 75 icedmocha34 October 3, 2014 at 16:49

        But then I can smile cruely…meh heh heh

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:49

        Well, it’s always good to have a wicked smile, I’d say.

      • 77 icedmocha34 October 4, 2014 at 15:28

        Yup!

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 18:01

        *nods*

  12. 79 InfiniteZip October 2, 2014 at 15:32

    I think he needs a GPS and a haircut :)

    • 80 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:52

      A haircut too, Zippy?

      • 81 InfiniteZip October 2, 2014 at 23:52

        He has bangs, they must go…unless they hide a scar, but scars are cool you know.

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:41

        Are you against bangs, Zippy?

      • 83 InfiniteZip October 3, 2014 at 16:32

        They look funny on men

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:48

        Hmm…Vin Diesel has them.

      • 85 InfiniteZip October 4, 2014 at 14:18

        Is he a real man?

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 17:59

        Why I think so.

  13. 87 LadyPinkRose October 2, 2014 at 14:53

    May I please take a ride on the smiley cloud? That is so cool? And this trip! For real? There is a much better way, you know. You find the path through the forest, stay on the path, until you get to the tree. Simple. All this going around the LONG way, (I’m surprised China wasn’t enroute) is for the birds! Speaking of, do I need to be a bird to get to the smiley cloud? From one with HEART, LadyP

    • 88 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:52

      Well, you might have to be a stork–or a bird that flies very highly high. But what if you can’t find a path in the woods?

      • 89 LadyPinkRose October 2, 2014 at 19:01

        Then make one!

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:31

        With a sword?

      • 91 LadyPinkRose October 3, 2014 at 14:48

        No. With a machete. *did I spell that right?* Hmmmm……

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:48

        I think you did. Do you have one of those???

      • 93 LadyPinkRose October 3, 2014 at 19:58

        *sad face* No, but I sure do wish I did. I used to have a dragon dagger. Really.

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 17:51

        Wow! Was it…what did it look like?

  14. 95 Susan P October 2, 2014 at 14:45

    I had a bad feeling about the outcome of this adventure. Oh dear. He might have done better if he’d taken a compass. How long before you send out a search party?

    • 96 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:51

      Oh, I won’t. Lots of PL’ers will be happy if he isn’t about to keep things ordered. You know what I mean?

      • 97 Susan P October 2, 2014 at 18:28

        Is he back yet?

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:31

        I fear not. Horrid, isn’t it?

      • 99 Susan P October 3, 2014 at 13:05

        Either that or he’s playing some gastly joke.

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:39

        But Mr. Magi wouldn’t do that.

      • 101 Susan P October 3, 2014 at 22:02

        Well, then. We must needs send out a search party.

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 17:57

        Yes! Would you like to head it?

      • 103 Susan P October 5, 2014 at 19:53

        I’m pretty good with directions, but there need to be directions. And maps. Lots of maps.

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 12:20

        I should learn to read a map…

      • 105 Susan P October 6, 2014 at 14:41

        I noted that he has returned unharmed…at least apparently unharmed.

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:44

        Bruised, you know.

      • 107 Susan P October 6, 2014 at 20:52

        I bet he could tell a good tale.

  15. 108 erinkenobi2893 October 2, 2014 at 14:35

    Oh no… poor Mr. Magi. Ignorance may not be malice, but it sure has similar effects… :-P

    • 109 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:50

      *nods* He should have the sense to see through it, don’t you think?

      • 110 erinkenobi2893 October 2, 2014 at 21:40

        I don’t know. Schwarz did not mean any harm. Maybe that’s why Mr. Magi took his advice.

      • 111 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:40

        True. I don’t think Schwarz had any ulterior motives or anything. Still, Schwarz should be told that his way to the tree isn’t a good one.

      • 112 erinkenobi2893 October 3, 2014 at 13:40

        No, he didn’t, I’m certain of that. But we should tell him gently all the same.

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:41

        I’ll let you do it.

      • 114 erinkenobi2893 October 3, 2014 at 23:02

        Okay, I will then. :-)

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 17:58

        Thanks very muchly.

      • 116 erinkenobi2893 October 5, 2014 at 19:19

        :-P

  16. 117 FictionFan October 2, 2014 at 13:42

    What makes you say his directions are bad? We won’t know that till Mr Magi gets back and reveals if he found the tree. You’re always so mean about my Schwarzy!

    • 118 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:49

      Well…just look at the route! Would you follow those directions?

      • 119 FictionFan October 2, 2014 at 20:30

        I would if my Schwarzy said to – he’s so trustworthy. Unlike some…

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:37

        Is the professor trustworthy?

      • 121 FictionFan October 3, 2014 at 14:18

        Hmm…I don’t know. Is he?

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:47

        Would you trust him?

      • 123 FictionFan October 3, 2014 at 22:07

        With my life! But…would I be making a big mistake…? Perhaps he’s just trying to trick me? *worried face*

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 17:57

        Of course not! I wouldn’t do that. I’m trustworthy. Even if you’d steal my katana–or stomp on my feet!

      • 125 FictionFan October 5, 2014 at 23:01

        I’d never steal your katana! Maybe borrow it though from time to time? And as for the foot-stomping, well… it won’t happen again. Probably. *smiles sweetly*

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 12:29

        You can definitely borrow it. You know, when I visit, I’ll bring you one. If I can get it through customs. That would be an adventure. *laughs* That has to be good enough, I suppose. I bet Aravis always stamped people’s feet.

      • 127 FictionFan October 6, 2014 at 14:37

        *laughs* It would indeed be an adventure! So would visiting you in prison… *bakes cherry cake with a file in*

        I bet Aravis had servants to stamp on people for her. *jealous face*

      • 128 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:43

        *laughing lots* They would have to pry it away from my cold, dead hands! Cherry cake sounds good. But the file would take up room.

        You seriously can’t be jealous of her…

      • 129 FictionFan October 6, 2014 at 22:08

        Oh, the katana? I thought you meant the cake! My baking does tend to have that effect…

        I’m jealous of anyone who has servants. I should have servants. Don’t you think I should? I wouldn’t need many – just a maid, and a cook, and a gardener, and a chauffeur, and a cleaner and a cat-entertainer. And maybe a footman just for fun…

      • 130 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 13:01

        I’m sure your cake would be delicious fun! There.

        *laughs* Well, would you be a nice Master? (What’s the female equivalent for master?)

      • 131 FictionFan October 7, 2014 at 18:32

        *laughs* Fun perhaps, but…

        I would be utterly charming so long as they were devoted to fulfilling my every wish. (I fear it’s mistress… though I think Queen sounds better, don’t you?)

      • 132 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 19:58

        *laughs too*

        Which they would be, I bet. I’d be the frog outside in the rain. On the doorstep, eating a leaf. (I’m not sure… Queen sounds so royal.)

    Mr. Magi has bangs?! I cannot get past the thought, Duke. Why is he asking Schwarz for directions? I’m beginning to question Magi’s health. Is he running a fever? Sometimes I get the feeling Schwarz is a fast runner.

    What beautiful pictures from the PL. I’m a bit envious of the smiling cloud. I want a picture of one. I think the humidity of Houston keeps all smiling clouds away. The hike or journey really will be a poetic event for Magi, Duke. I hope he isn’t lost. Maybe just enjoying each view, as one should.

    • 134 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:45

      Schwarz might be…I’m not sure. Well, Mr. Magi might trust anyone at anytime. Though, he probably shouldn’t have, huh?

      That’s a professorish cloud. Doesn’t it look like one?

      • 135 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 2, 2014 at 20:13

        I see. Okay and I’ve taken down a note. Thank you. What do I know about Schwarz? He seems the trusting sort.

        Yes, it looks just like you.

      • 136 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:33

        I think he might be…DS isn’t, though.

        See? All questions answered. You’ve seen the professor!

      • 137 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 4, 2014 at 14:47

        Thank you for keeping me up to date, professor.

        I guess you’re right about that, Duke. Elusive, fleeting and only for the universe to ever truly understand. I suppose that I shall now cease my journey to uncover anything more.

      • 138 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 18:01

        No! You must keep hunting. Maybe I’m like that Oz chap.

      • 139 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 6, 2014 at 02:52

        *slings her backpack over her shoulder*
        *looks for a yellow brick road*
        Yeah, maybe you are the great wizard.

      • 140 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 12:30

        It’d be a red road, though.

      • 141 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 6, 2014 at 14:57

        Oh, I knew that…I like red roads, barns, too.

      • 142 Professor VJ Duke October 6, 2014 at 19:45

        And red fires!

      • 143 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 6, 2014 at 20:57

        I refuse to name all the wonderful red things in the world for you, Duketh.

      • 144 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 12:50

        I don’t see why.

      • 145 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 7, 2014 at 19:22

        Too many, I suppose. Would take forever…

      • 146 Professor VJ Duke October 7, 2014 at 20:00

        Yeah…too long.

      • 147 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 8, 2014 at 03:43

        Yeah. However, I like red cars, suckers, shoes, fish…

      • 148 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2014 at 12:45

        And…lollipops.

      • 149 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 8, 2014 at 13:09

        And…hair! I should have said that first!

      • 150 Professor VJ Duke October 9, 2014 at 12:42

        I’m surprised you didn’t! *laughs a bit*

      • 151 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister October 9, 2014 at 14:00

        *laughs*

  18. 152 weggieboy October 2, 2014 at 12:40

    A tour of the world, for sure!

    • 153 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:44

      It must have been!

  19. 154 PorterGirl October 2, 2014 at 12:33

    Look at that happy cloud! I like that cloud very much.

    This looks like quite the adventure, Mr M should take a sandwich and some juice with him. If this really is the way to the big tree then Schwarz did well to remember the directions, I think. Some might say the directions are bad where as I feel they are just creative.

    (I had to laugh the Mr M’s bangs were messed up. I know what you mean but that word means something a bit different this side of the pond. So that made me giggle a lot)

    • 155 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:39

      A professorish cloud!

      *laughing* Do you suppose Schwarz takes the long way? For instance, if I wanted to go next door, instead of turning left, I could go right and go about the whole world–until I get there. OR something like that.

      Goodness me…what do you fellows call it? And…what’s it mean… *horrified face*

      • 156 PorterGirl October 2, 2014 at 13:32

        There is a lot to be said for taking the long way. Interesting things often happen and there are usually more things to look at. Schwarz has an unusual wisdom about him, wouldn’t you say?

        I would call ‘bangs’ a fringe (be careful how you say it – it is very close to another word that is also rude). Bangs… hmmm… how to put it politely? It’s what daddy pigeons do to mummy pigeons when they want baby pigeons.

      • 157 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:48

        Umm…no! I think he’s a bit dull, I fear. And you must too…just a bit?

        *laughing* That’s a great way to put it, I’d say. Well…you never know. What a wonder. I see why you were laughing.

      • 158 PorterGirl October 3, 2014 at 07:21

        I harbour hopes that Schwarz is a secret genius, but fear I am wrong. He might even be a little bit unstable – haha!

        It did make me laugh. Soon you will be speaking fluent British, Professor!

      • 159 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 12:42

        But then again, Lucy, you could be right! We don’t know. *cue Spider-man scene*

        I will! All the better. When I visit, I won’t get…killed. “Nice bangs, sir.”

      • 160 PorterGirl October 3, 2014 at 13:09

        Oooh imagine Schwarz as Spiderman! Or a Spiderman baddie. Now that would be cool. By the way, will there be any more Star Trek/PL things? I love them.

        *Falls off of chair laughing* That is so funny. I am going to adopt an American accent and say that to someone, just for the fun of it! (you should visit one day, you know)

      • 161 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:41

        You know, I haven’t thought about it. But…since you like them…maybe! How about a Wolfman?

        *laughs* Do you suppose they’d get mad? I know! You’ll have to show me about, too.

      • 162 PorterGirl October 5, 2014 at 16:05

        A Wolfman – yes! I can see it now…

        Of course I would show you around (we could go to the real Old College!)

      • 163 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 18:04

        It’d be scary!

        Oh, that’d be so cool!

  20. 164 Julie Harris October 2, 2014 at 12:25

    Wow. That is quite a trip! I think I have received directions similar to these before. Love the smiling cloud!

    • 165 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:36

      Many thanks! I put that there. *smiles proudly* Yes…going in circles, it seems. But this must have been worse. Imagine going from desert to forest to arctic!

  21. 166 MissTiffany October 2, 2014 at 12:12

    And here I thought I was bad a giving directions…I think Schwarz takes the cake.

    Please forgive me for being terribly wicked in neglecting you, Professor.
    P.s. I finally got my copy of Innocents Abroad. I think the library was holding it hostage.

    Cheers,
    Miss Tiffany

    • 167 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 12:35

      He sure does! Hi, Tiffany! Good to see you about. I give horrid directions too, I fear.

      Not a problem! You’ve been busy, I know. Nice! Was someone reading it?

      • 168 MissTiffany October 2, 2014 at 13:14

        Hello! It’s good to be about. I might give horrid directions, but I always get to where I need to go. Eventually.

        Indeed I have. But I’m trying not to stay away too long this time…
        I’m not sure! Someone must have been. I’m going to dive into it this weekend…

      • 169 Professor VJ Duke October 2, 2014 at 17:46

        Eventually… *laughs* GPS’s are handy, I’d say.

        That’s great.

        Let me know what you think of it!

      • 170 MissTiffany October 3, 2014 at 16:13

        Indeed they are. My boyfriend swears by them, in fact.

        Indeed I will. I predict a book review in my blog’s future.

      • 171 Professor VJ Duke October 3, 2014 at 19:48

        Great!

        GPS’s have something against me, I fear.

      • 172 MissTiffany October 4, 2014 at 14:28

        Me too. I prefer stopping and asking the locals for directions. I just hope they aren’t like Schwarz.

      • 173 Professor VJ Duke October 5, 2014 at 17:59

        Oh, I bet you’d love to run into Schwarz!

      • 174 MissTiffany October 7, 2014 at 23:15

        I would, actually. Just not for directions.

      • 175 Professor VJ Duke October 8, 2014 at 12:41

        *nods*
