Time Messengers

Communication from one time period to another has not made the great advances in recent years that some had forecast. We have not come far from the days when a time traveller who wanted to send a message back home or to a friend or business associate in another age, would have to travel to the age in question and use the communication network available in that time.

While the process has changed little there is an alternative to one making the trek one’s self. This is all leading up to a favor I promised…

My cousin, Robbie, asked that I put in a plug for his new business venture, Time Messengers. I copied the text from his recent newspaper advertisement and reprint it here. You are under no obligation.

Winterfell Takes Caledon, 3-1

by Danko Whitfield

Winterfell Mourning Crier

After a devastating loss to the New Babbage Steamers last week, the Winterfell Elves rebounded to take the Caledon Victorians 3 to 1 in a match in SouthEnd on Friday night last. The go-ahead goal was scored by the Elves’ captain, Wildstar Beaumont.

“We played ’em hard, we never let up on ’em,”  declared Coach Serra of Winterfell. Referring to last year’s rout by Caledon in a match in Anodyne, after which some observers questioned the toughness of the Winterfell team, Coach Serra declared, “Tough? We showed ’em who’s tough. What do they think we are? A bunch of fairies?”

The spring football (soccer) “short season” wraps up this week when the Elves play the Salmons at Steelhead.
