Woodrow Woodpecker also told Petunia Pig and Corky Pig that some of the ghost traps had rolled over the edge of the Tree Top Area floor into the Forest Palace below. Thanking Woodrow, the duo went down the stairs.

Looking around the Forest Palace with its many waterways, Petunia & Corky decided if the traps landed in the water, they could stay there. Instead they went to visit Henry & Henrietta Hedgehog at the Mushrooms and Moss. The Hedgehogs gave Petunia a few traps that had landed in their place. "Thanks. See you at the next exercise session," said Petunia.

Corky & Petunia entered the Arbour. Forgetting about the traps, the pair decided to get a triple-decker ice cream cone each. Petunia chose strawberry, blueberry and blackberry flavours. Corky chose watermelon, raspberry and topped it off with lemon sherbet. Over their ice creams, the pair chatted, pulled faces at the different flavours and enjoyed themselves. They did not notice a hairy creature crawling into Petunia's backpack.

Corky walked Petunia to the Castle Vicinity unaware of the stowaway. They didn't have many traps but they had had a fun time. All Hallows Jack still gave them a candy each.

All Hallows Jack said to Petunia "Please tell the pets goodbye from me. I will be leaving soon. I can feel the cold in the air. It will be snowing soon so I must be off. I will see everyone on my return next year." Petunia nodded and thanked All Hallows Jack for all the candy.

The Ghost Hunter said the Wise Dragon had made the Dark Portal a one-direction portal (from here to there) so the Hunter could send the ghosts home but he would have to remain in case any ghosts were missed. The Amulet Archduke had telephoned saying he had a ghost problem in his territories. Plus Skull Pete had found Atlantis so the Ghost Hunter guessed he had better go and check it out for any ghost problems. So the Ghost Hunter went off with a wave and a thank you for all the help.

Glancing at her Sparkling Watch, Petunia thought it was time she went home.

I was sitting on the verandah listening to Sebastian Seal & Tally Turkey tell me which vegetables & fruits were ready to be picked and which ones needed to be readied for winter. The air was crisp and cold but the snow was late. The Weather Forecaster had informed us that a trough was coming through delaying the snowfall. Sebastian thought it best for the plants to be placed in pots in the greenhouse until winter was over.

Happy Turtle glided to a standstill while Woody Woodpecker flew off to the trees near the lagoon laughing. From Happy's expression, his long-awaited news was not good. Happy then regaled us with Woody's escapade. Woody is certainly causing all of us a Headache and giving us an Infusion of Suffering. I sighed.

Just then a black owl with tufted ear feathers and a rather grim expression alighted on the verandah. " 'Cuse me. Is this the 'ome of Hooter Owwl?" the visitor said with a long, low, growly drawl and twang. When I nodded, he continued. " 'e told me to meet him 'ere. Said you might be willing to give me a home. The developers have taken over my last place chasing me out. Banged & thumped all day long, they did! I am a night owwl and I likes to sleep thru the day."

Hooter Owl arrived home. "Oh, you're here already!" he said in surprise. 'Of course!" scoffed the visitor. Turning to me, Hooter introduced his friend. "This is Gunnar Grim Eagle Owl. He's homeless. He spoke to Madame Owl at the Book-Lover's Store and she asked me to see if you would be willing to take him in." "Plueeze!" asked the visitor. "He can sleep in the rafters in the stable with Pup Puppy & them or over in the new building with Maya Elephant. She hasn't anyone else there yet." put in Hooter. A Pang of Conscience wouldn't let me turn Gunnar away so I told the pair that would be fine. They both hooted! Hooter then went to introduce Gunnar to Sebastian, Tally & Happy.

I looked up and saw a small procession of pets returning home.

Two Wild and Crazy Guys (continued):

Harry's Angels synchronize their Watches. It's just a hair before the stroke of Midnight, on Friday, December 11th. Checking their supplies, the Angels hope they have enough food and water. They really don't know how long it will take to find Christmas. But, they don't intend to stop looking until they find it...ALL of it!

For 24 hours, the Angels look high and low, hither and yon. Having separated into their usual groups, they have covered the entire area...the Castle, the Town, the Harbor, the Forest, Cloud City (but not the Dark Tower. Grimdahl Tiger still insists that no one go near it, but the Angels are pretty sure they wouldn't find Christmas there anyway.) Now what? Harry suggests they stop for a breather on the Cloud City Pier. Midnight again, all is deserted, so Harry produces a Bottle of Velvet Ale he has hidden in his backpack, and they all enjoy some Sausages, compliments of Rocky Raccoon. When Rocky closed the Gnome Kitchen for the night, he gave the Angels all of the leftover Sausages "for energy" and wished them luck. Rocky is hoping the Angels will come through successfully on this mission same as they always do, but wonders if it's at all possible that everyone was naughty this year and that Santa simply is not coming. Rocky shakes his head and thinks to himself, "Nah. Couldn't be. We have some unruly ones here and there for sure, but lots of folks have been nice all year long!"

24 more hours of the same. No stone left unturned. Every nook and cranny thoroughly explored. Just shy of Monday, December 12th, and still no sign of Christmas! The Angels take deep breaths and continue, circling around every area for the umpteenth time, making sure nothing has been missed. And then it's Midnight AGAIN. The Angels are plum tuckered out, but vow to press on. Another 24 hours pass, and now it's Midnight on Tuesday, December 13th. The Angels have taken little Cat naps here and there, but are now seriously sleep deprived. Even worse, they have run out of food. Harry decides they need to detour and sneak back into Salty's Tavern to find some food, whatever they can get. They find the Tavern dark, Salty has long gone home for the night. As the Angels collapse on the ground behind the Tavern massaging their sore Paws, Harry pries open his secret entrance and slips between the two loose boards. Filling a sack with Pretzels, boiled Eggs, and Candy, Harry is about ready to leave when...

Two Wild and Crazy Guys (continued):

Startled, Harry Hedgehog thinks to himself, "Did I just hear a CHUCKLE?" Slithering to his hiding place underneath the Bar Counter, Harry slowly raises himself and stealthily peeks over. Harry blinks. And blinks again. When what to his wondering Eyes should appear, but Saint Nick himself, enjoying a seafood feast at the Dice Table!

Santa turns in Harry's direction and puts a finger to his lips as if to say, "Sh...let's keep this our little secret." Then, Santa beckons Harry over, and greets him with a "Ho, Ho, Ho! How ya been Harry?" "I hope I can count on you to keep quiet about this. I had a hankering for some of Salty's seafood, and just couldn't resist." Stunned, Harry Eyes Santa with a questioning look. "Oh, don't you worry, Harry, I'll be gone in a flash. The Elves are all back at the Sleigh, parked just outside of Town, sorting Decorations, counting Snowflakes and wrapping Gifts. I promise you, we will all be here tomorrow with everything you were looking for! " "Now, Mum's the word, okay? But, you can tell the Angels your mission was a success, to go on home and get a good night's sleep, and when they come back tomorrow, they can all see for themselves!" And with that, Santa takes a pull from his Pipe, and one last swig from his tankard of Ale. A tendril of smoke causes Harry to blink...and when he opens his eyes, Santa is gone!

"That didn't just happen, did it?", thinks Harry. And then seeing the mess on the Dice Table, Harry knows it did. Cleaning it up quickly so no one will be the wiser, Harry takes the sack of food outside to the exhausted Angels. "Have a quick snack, fellas, and go on home to bed. Mission Accomplished! And you'll just have to trust me on this one!" The Angels are too tired to ask questions anyway, so they each grab a snack and head home for their warm beds.

The following day, all of the Angels sleep well into the afternoon. Harry gets up and makes his Telephone calls. "Meeting at Salty's, Pronto!".

As the Angels approach Salty's they can't believe their Eyes. Elves. Snowflakes. Decorations. And even Ice Skaters! Christmas IS here, just like Harry said. High fives and elbow bumps all around. They did it! The mission WAS a success! Harry and his Angels found Christmas!

Bucky Rooster has an Well, admittedly, this has never happened before, and Bucky is a bit surprised himself...but he DOES have an idea, and he's pretty sure it's a good one, so when they get back from today's Chest hunt, he will talk it over with Ella Elephant to see what she thinks about it.

As the Chest hunting team pulls into the cottage and everyone starts to disperse (except for Peter Rabbit, who now has to do all the accounting since Corky Pig is tied up with "other ventures"), Bucky perches on Ella's back and whispers in her ear.

"Ella, I have an idea I need to speak with you about. Could we go somewhere private?" And with that, Ella lumbers into the Elvyn Forest. Bucky glances around, and there is not a soul in sight, so he begins to tell Ella his bright Ella listens attentively, and when Bucky has spit it all out, she trumpets her approval. The only thing they aren't sure about, is should they tell Linet, or should they tell Grimdahl Tiger?

They decide they need to tell both. They will tell Linet first, because she can help them execute the idea, and then they will tell Grimdahl Tiger so they won't get into any trouble, as they will have to take a few days off from Chest hunting, and he will have to name their replacements.

Full of excitement, Ella, with Bucky still atop her back, lumbers to the cottage with so much gusto, that Bucky falls right off. But Bucky doesn't mind given the circumstances. They must speak with Linet right away, before the opportunity passes them by.

Two Wild and Crazy Guys (continued):

It must have been fate. Grimdahl Tiger was doing nothing at all, (most unusual, as you all know) taking a leisurely walk and enjoying all the Chrismas decorations.

Passing the Pet Hatchery, Grim can't help but notice a colorful banner, which says "Adopt a Pet for the Holidays Charity Event". He knows full well that Linet may crack under the pressure if they were to get a new Pet anytime soon, so decides he'll go in and give a generous donation. As Grim engages in a friendly chat with the receptionist, three bedraggled Pets come through the front door.

"We are homeless. We saw your sign, and thought maybe you could help us find a home." Grim turns around to see what appears to be two miniature dragons, and a little furry Pet of unknown origin. "I am Larry, the Rainbow Dragon, and these are my brothers, Moe the Fire Dragon, and Curly, the Wooly Paw. We also have a sister, but we lost her somewhere along the way. The three of us have been on our own for quite some time now and it's been hard getting food however we can, and finding places to sleep. I apologize for our appearance, but can you please help us?"

The wheels in Grimdahl's head begin to turn. He hopes Linet won't throw him out (IF she finds out), but he believes it will be a win-win situation if he were to adopt these three Pets. He has a job in mind for them, which he thinks they will be perfect for, plus, he thinks it will make Harry and his Angels very happy. Grim will hide them in the barn, and is pretty sure Corky Pig will help him get them settled. Harry Hedgehog can get the uniforms. Yes, this should all work out very nicely!

"I'll take them!, says Grim. The receptionist looks shocked. The three little Pets breathe a sigh of relief. Since the Midnight Castle Halloween Event ended not to long ago, Grim decides he will disguise them as Ghosts, and asks the receptionist for a white sheet, which he then divides three ways, and cuts two Eye Holes in each, so they can see.

Grim gets no resistance from the Pets, who in fact seem rather happy for the adventure, and tells them to follow him home and if anyone speaks to them, to just say, "BOO!"

The little group arrives at the cottage having met with no incidents, and Grim hides them in the barn. Fetching Corky Pig, who he finds packing up his Hot Dog Cart for the winter, Corky agrees to help. "Whatcha gonna do with 'em Grim?" "You'll see", says Grim.

Two Wild and Crazy Guys (continued):

Linet is in the pantry reviewing the stock to make sure they have all they need for the holidays. She is pleased with what she sees. Chef Fabio Bunny is doing a great job, and even Lenny Lemur has gotten better at food sourcing using pointers from Chef Fabio. She does however notice a gigantic tub of Lemon raisin Biscuits, with "SALE" splashed across the side. Lemon raisin??? Lenny strikes again! Linet is smiling to herself, when her thoughts are interrupted by two excited voices calling her name from the kitchen.

In the kitchen, Linet finds Bucky Rooster and Ella Elephant, and they seem bursting to tell her something. Linet asks them to have a seat at the table, and passes out hot Chocolate for everyone. "Ok", says Linet. "I'm all ears." Smiling at Ella, Linet adds, "No pun intended!"

Bucky Rooster begins, telling Linet that he has had an idea, and that Ella is on board. They'd like to dress up for the holidays, and they are wondering if Linet will give her approval, and help them with their costumes. Bucky thinks it would be fun for him and Ella be "Holiday Characters" and to mingle with the Castle residents, spreading good cheer and saying things like "Merry Christmas!" and "Happy New Year!"

Bucky continues that he would like to dress up as a Fire Rooster, and that Ella would like to dress up as a Baby Mammoth. "Only thing is", says Bucky, "If you say "yes", we will need you to tell Grimdahl Tiger so he can replace us on Chest Hunting Duty." Linet wonders where such an idea has come from, but it seems harmless enough. Bucky says his costume will be a top Hat, decorated with holly, and a Candy Cane to twirl, just to add excitement. "Ella's costume will take a little more work though, and I think you may have to take her to the "Nu Du Salon". She needs a pink wiglet with a top Knot, and a temporary pink dye job all over. Other than that, she just needs a small string of Christmas lights to wear."

Linet smiles to herself. How can she say no, to such a clever idea? So, she gives Bucky and Ella a big grin, and says "Great idea! I'll call "Nu Du" to make an appointment for Ella right away. "Do you think Grim will be mad?", asks Bucky. Linet replies, "Of course not. However it may seem, I'm still in charge here.", and gives them both a wink. "So, let's get started, and I'll handle Grimdahl Tiger!"

Gunnar Grim the Eagle Owl has taken on the Seal of the Guardian as he keeps a close eye on young Ding Bat. They have settled into the rafters of Maya Elephant's spacious accommodation.

On the Spring Terrace which has been made winter-ready with panels & blinds to keep out the Eight Winds & Snowfall, Sebastian Seal has set up a barrel that Salty Took from the Inn had given him. Whimpy Wisp now calls it 'home'. The Bunny family have taken him under their "wing". "Come on, Whimpy!" calls Benji Bunny as he races out into the snow to do some bunny hops. Whimpy thinks if a ghost could cry, he would have tears rolling down his cheeks. He was so happy!

Woody Woodpecker was somewhere in the trees near the house. We know he is there as we can hear his laugh. Whoo - Ha- Ha! He appears to create mayhem & then disappears back into the trees. His latest escapade has seen him banned from the kitchen. He had pecked a hole in the bottom of the mixing bowl. When Gabbi Griffin had added eggs and milk to the bowl to make an omelette, the contents had leaked through making a gooey mess.

Tally Turkey and Cornelius Chicken have moved into the stable for the winter. They often play dice with Pup Puppy and Itchi Woolly Paw while Eugene Donkey and Pedro Pony look on (munching on their feed of oats and wheat).

In the stable, there is also our latest pet. Legs Spider is "unseen" by the members of the family. He has just taken up residence. When Petunia Pig had dropped her backpack on the verandah, Legs had made his way cautiously out of the bag. There had been grunting, snorting and growling while the pets regaled Miss Dot with their adventures so Legs had scuttled off. Finally settling in the rafters of the stable. Now he sits in his web, a pensive spider wondering how he can get to know the family without being squished first.

I look out over the winter wonderland that our yard has become. Nature Sounds, Forest Sounds and the sounds of happy pets float on the Gentle Wind. Then I hear a CROAK! Looking down I see ....................

CROAK!
"What!!" I look down as I speak. There, on the verandah, was a large green toad with a purple underbelly and pink grips on his toes. Plus the creature was sporting a mortarboard (of all things) on his head. Astonishment is my reaction.

Then, a cultured voice asks politely "Is this the Sanctuary?"
I nod.
I hear a sigh of relief. before that voice said "Thank goodness. This was my Last Hope."

Then the creature straightened itself and launched into his plea.

Please, My Lady, I am in desperate need of a home. I come from Atlantis. I used to assist a learned gentleman. He gave me this monocle, you know! One day he donned his wig & best attire and went to sit in his favourite seat in the Hanging Gardens. He went to sleep. I waited but he never woke up. Gradually he turned into Skeleton in Hanging Gardens. Life was lonely after that. One day a pirate chappie came. The Lure of Adventure called. So I slipped on board & hid in the Crow's nest. The seas were rough especially when we passed the Rocks. I lost my luggage overboard. In the Port, I fended off seagulls. Adventure is not all it is cracked up to be, let me tell you! Then this little bat got itself tangled in the Jolly Roger. The pirate chappie (I heard someone call him Skull Pete) took the little bat down & spoke to another man. I followed & was in time to hear them talk about a place called Sanctuary that gave creatures a home. This gentle Hippo came & took the bat. I tried to follow but feet & cart wheels got in the way. I fell in ditches & got kicked a time or two. I got lost!! Found a young girl in an Antique Shop in Town. I tried to follow her directions but I ended up at the Castle Vicinity. Santa's Helpers pointed me towards here. So I present myself & humbly ask for a home. My name is Cedric W. Toad. My former friend said that the "W" was for Wise.

Just then a fly buzzed past. Quick as a Lightning Flash, Cedric's long tongue flicked out & reeled the fly in. Amused, I thought I could do with a fly-catcher around here.

Theo Raven arrived home in time to catch most of Cedric W. Toad's tale. 'You say you used to assist a learned man. Are you any good at organising a writer's notes? Can you use a Writing Piece?" he asked hopefully.

"Rather!" replied Cedric.

Theo beamed with a Dawn of Hope. He turned to me. "Cedric can room in my study & help me." Theo stated. "Please!" he said with a touch of an Apprehensive Tone in his voice.

I nodded.

Theo turned to Cedric and said "Come along & I will show you your new home."
Cedric gave me a formal bow and told me "Thank you, my lady." Then he turned & followed Theo.

I suddenly thought of the pet sleigh bed that I saw in the Christmas Room at Trina's Furniture Emporium. It would fit under Theo's desk & give Cedric somewhere to sleep. "Look into it tomorrow" I thought as I listen to their fading voices.

"Miss Dot! Miss Dot!" Jack Jack-in-a-Box's voice echoed around the house. I raced quickly to the lounge to see what the problem was.

Sidney Snowman & Alvin Penguin were bouncing on the lounge chair while they waited for me. "Please say Yes!" they chorused when they spotted me. Say "Yes" to what, I thought bewilderedly.

Jack piped up. "Ursula Bear & Emerald Dragon have this great idea. They are going to clean up, paint and put motifs and decorations on the rusty chests. Then sell them at the market in the City Square. They can be jewellery boxes, linen boxes, even treasure chests! All they need are some rusty chests. Can we go hunting, please?"

I agreed. They cheered, telling the assembled pets about the rusty chests. All the pets wanted 'in' on the adventure. "Bet I can find 3 rusty chests," said one pet. "I can too!" answered another. The Midnight Castle Challenge for 3 rusty chests was on!

Ryia Reindeer & Peridta Pegasus arrived while the challenge was being issued. They told the pets about the Christmas Elf at the Burnt Tree wanting help with "Spreading Holiday Joy". The elf said that he wanted to send some festive decorations to his friends but he needed our help to find the decorations. We could combine the 2 quests. "Allright! Chests & decorations." yelled the pets as they scattered to get their backpacks, etc so they could answer the Call of Adventure.

Tally Turkey grabbed the wheelbarrow and a shovel (just in case she had to dig for the chests). The bunnies asked if they could join her. When she said "yes", the youngest bunnies, Benji Bunny & Zeva Bunny along with their newfound sibling Whimpy Wisp piled into the wheelbarrow for a ride to the Castle Gates.

At the Castle Gates, Tally used the shovel to turn over the rocks in the Rock Garden. She unearthed 2 gold chests before she found a rusty one. She also discovered some Tree Trimmings & Fir Cones . Pleased Tally packed up.

Meanwhile Whimpy (being able to float/ fly) checked out the Belfry. There were some Christmas Bells inside one of the suits of armour as well as a gold chest but nil else. Disappointed Whimpy moaned, startling the residents crows who cawed. Whimpy was about to end his search when the resident mouse pushed a rusty chest out of it's Rusty Cage for Whimpy. Thrilled Whimpy went about moving all his finds.

In the Birdcage sat a large red bird with a fierce look on its face as it guarded its nest. The bunnies decided not to disturb the bird.

Jasper Bunny managed to get into the Raven Stone. He found 2 gold chests and some Candy Canes but nothing else. He felt deflated.

Brodie Bunny helped Tilda Bunny to climb down into the Broken Well while Benji & Zeva waited patiently back on the ground outside the well. Tilda discovered another rabbit living in the well. They stopped to chat while Brodie & the resident angel hunted for chests & decorations. Brodie found 1 gold & 2 silver chests but not one glimpse of a rusty chest. He also found Christmas Stars & Wreaths. They passed the items down to Benji & Zeva who hopped over & put the items in the wheelbarrow.

Before leaving, Tally & Benji went over to the Knight Lords and wished them Happy Holidays! The Lords gave Tally & Beni a strange looking wand each. Seeing the look on the pair's faces, one of the Lords explained that the wand was called a Holiday Wand & that it was magical. Yippee! called Benji as he waved his wand madly about but nothing happened.

The group went to the Burnt Tree & the Christmas Elf. The elf gave Tilda a rusty chest when he saw all the decorations.

Tilda Bunny looked in the rusty chest that the Christmas Elf had given her. It contained some coins, a diamond, a couple of cards and 2 eggs. One egg was grey with a white & red fur strip wrapped around it while the other one was a greenish colour with an orange fur strip wrapped around it. Tilda did not know what to do with them so she thought she would show Miss Dot.

Benji Bunny was hoping around waving his wand. Zeva Bunny wished she had a 'funny-looking stick' like her brother. The Christmas Elf noticed Zeva's wistful look. He handed some decorations to Zeva and told her to take them over to Santa's Helpers. He pointed at the children near the Gnome Road Sign. The children gave Zeva a wand just like her brother's. They explained to Zeva that they trade wands & gift boxes for decorations.

Excitedly Zeva hopped back to her brother to show off her wand. "How about a sword play?" asked Benji. They hopped, jumped and tried to 'bop' each other with their "swords". Their antics were so funny that the Christmas Elf and the other bunnies laughed and cheered them on. On my way back from visiting Salty Took at the Inn, I also stopped to watch and smile.

But the smile changed when Tilda handed me her rusty chest. "This is going to the Pet Hatchery." I told Tilda after I handed her the coins & diamond. I went off.

Meanwhile Jack Jack-in-a-Box and Sidney Snowman were busy searching the Castle Entry.

Jack had found 1 gold chest & one wooden chest under the Wheel of Fortune carriage. One helpful wheel player even looked on top of the carriage for Jack. They found several Christmas Stars. Jacked thanked them for their assistance. Jack called up to the elves in the Elfish Bas-relief and asked them if they had seen any chests or decorations. They dropped a gold chest and some Santa Hats down to Jack.

Sidney went to the Fire Fountain, But when he went to search it, the Fire Phoenix hissed and flamed him. Sidney grabbed a stick to fend the phoenix off and beat a hasty retreat. The Keeper of the Castle saw Sidney's disappointed face & asked what happened. Sidney explained about the challenge & the Fire Phoenix. The Keeper smiled and moved his leg. There were 2 rusty chests and a wooden chest. The Keeper had asked the cleaners to put the decorations they had found (when cleaning) in the chests. There was a mixture of Festive Garlands, Christmas Lights and Christmas Bells. Sidney was thrilled & went to thank the Keeper. However he forgot he had the "stick" in his hand until he nearly hit the Keeper.

""Whoa, young fellow!" said the Keeper. "You don't want to break your wand on my iron arm." Seeing Sidney's bewildered look, the Keeper informed Sidney. "That is a Holiday Wand. It is magical. See those coloured globs floating around. Just wave your wand through one and see what happens."

Eagerly Sidney took a Deadly Swish at a gold glob. Ice crystals formed. Then cracked and a snow globe floated down into Sidney's hands. Inside the snow globe were Crystalline Snowmen. Sidney couldn't stop shaking his snow globe so he could watch the swirling snow & see the Snowmen.

Jack was jealous. He had 2 gold chests & a wooden one plus some decorations. Sidney had 2 rusty chests & a wooden one plus decorations as well as a wand. Jack wanted a wand. The Keeper told Jack to take some of the decorations and trade with Santa's Helpers near the bridge into the Castle.

Jack & Sidney raced to the Castle Vicinity.

The Midnight Castle Challenge continues.

Yowla Yeti & Felicity Rabbit made their way to Ice Rock. There they enlisted the aid of Henry the Archaeologist to search for chests and decorations. They examined the Summer Garden, the Frozen Treasure, the Winter Idol & even the Binding Egg. Felicity collected 2 gold chests and 1 rusty chest and lots of Candy Canes. Yowla ended up with 2 silver chests and a heap of Tree Trimmings & Christmas Bells. Yowla then approached the Ice Monster to ask if he had any chests or decorations. However, before he would look, he demanded payment of an Ice Crown and the Shackles of Chaos. Yowla looked dismayed until Henry said he had some back at his place. He left so Yowla chatted with the Ice Monster. When Henry returned, the Ice Monster gave Yowla a rusty chest, some Santa Hats and a wand. The girls thanked both Henry & the Ice Monster. They headed to the Castle Vicinity and the Christmas Elf.

Gabbi Griffin thought the chest Challenge was a perfect excuse to visit her friend in the Shining Split. Gabbi usually gets wooden chests so she wasn't taking part in the Challenge. However she thought she might be able to find some decorations & keep an Ever Awake Eye on Alvin Penguin.as he explored the Mystery Chamber. The griffin from the Shining Split had several Festive Garlands which he gave to Gabbi & then they settled down to watch over Alvin. Alvin jumped on the Secret Slab until it opened. There he found a gold chest and 2 Christmas Lights. He startled the Chained Eagles which caused their arrow background to whirl into action. Alvin beat a hasty retreat. The resident Owl in the Tree of Knowledge did not approve of Alvin using the branches as a race track so he gave Alvin a rusty chest & a wand to send him on his way. Alvin used the wand to hit the head of the Column of the Fallen. The statue was not amused so he gave Alvin a silver chest & told him to "go away!". Gabbi thought it was time to leave. They needed to meet up with the other pets so they waved goodbye.

Meanwhile other pets are taking part in the Midnight Castle Challenge.

Hoppy Tiger and Mia Meow went to the Throne Hall. Being a polite young man, Hoppy asked permission to search the Throne Hall for chests and decorations. The Lord Chamberlain said 'yes' as he was going to his quarters to sit in front of his Old Fireplace where he 'enjoyed the golden warmth & homey hearth'. Hoppy checked the Mirror Nave, the Door Cache and the Chained Chest. He found 3 rusty chests and Christmas Wreaths, Christmas Bells & Christmas Stars. Mia (being the more agile) investigated the Armour and Banners, the Flag and all around the figurehead at the entrance to the Dungeon of the Cursed. She found 2 rusty chests, some Fir Cones and a wand. Laden with their finds, the pair headed to the Castle Vicinity and the Christmas Elf.

Theo Raven & Cedric W. Toad left Hoppy and Mia in the Throne Hall and entered the Forbidden Tower. They pulled up short when they realized there was someone there. The Wise Dragon eyed the pair and enquired what the duo was doing in his domain. Theo explained. The Wise Dragon replied that he had only recently returned so did not know if there were any chests or decorations in the Tower but that the duo were welcome to look! Cedric enjoyed a chat with the angel in the Scroll Storage where he found a rusty chest and some Christmas Lights. Cedric was content with his find. Theo searched the Mosaic Panel careful to avoid the resident snake. He also examined the Book of Evil & the Writing Corner finding several interesting articles that he would return another day to look at. He came across Tree Trimmings & 2 gold chests but was disappointed as he could not find a rusty chest. Thanking the Wise Dragon, Theo & Cedric took their leave and went in search of the Christmas Elf.

Cora Crocodile, Sybil Sea Serpent & Sebastian Seal continued on through the Dungeon of the Cursed and into the Underground Grotto.

Sebastian quickly headed to the Stone Bowl and the lovely mermaid. He forgot about the Midnight Castle Challenge. Instead he chatted & flirted with the mermaid.

Cora made her way over to the Crocodile Bush where she made the acquaintance of the mama crocodile. She duly admired the shy hatchling who peeped out of his shell. Digging through her nest, mama crocodile found a gold chest & 2 silver chests which she gave to Cora. But there were no rusty chests for Cora. Several Fir Cones & Christmas Stars were caught in the sticks in the nest so Cora collected them. Cora bade goodbye, promising to return another time.

Sybil climbed (in serpentine fashion) up to the home of Six Paw. She only meant to ask if he knew of any chests or Christmas decorations. But Six Paw took one look at her snake head & raised his Punishing Hand. Sybil quickly raced away & did not stop until she was safe in an A-frame hut. No-one was about so Sybil had a look. Lots of Santa Hats littered the floor. Sybil gathered them up. She also found a strange blue diamond - like chest filled with coins, a diamond and several airship items. After conferring with Sebastian & Cora, it was decided to take the airship items to the Airship Terminal at the Castle Vicinity.

Reluctantly Sebastian waved goodbye to the mermaid and the trio headed for the Castle Vicinity. The dragons at the Airship Terminal were very pleased with the return of the airship items. Apparently one of the delivery drivers had been dropping off the items wherever he felt like it; not delivering them to the correct addresses. The dragons only had a rusty chest as a reward but they did have lots of Christmas decorations (Candy Canes, Tree Trimmings, Christmas Wreaths & Festive Garlands) which they gave to Sybil, Cora & Sebastian.

The pets that had gone to Town to search for chests and Christmas decorations started arriving at the Castle Vicinity.

Chester Cat & Pepito Pumpkin had checked out the City Square. Chester had found one gold chest while Pepito had found a silver and a rusty chest. Between the two of them, they also had several Christmas Lights & Christmas Bells.

Ryia Reindeer & Perdita Pegasus had gone into Kaley's Special Goods. They left with Festive Garlands, Santa Hats & Candy Canes. Perdita also had a silver chest. Ryia had 2 gold chests & a rusty chest.

Maya Elephant & Pedro Pony had tried their luck in the Ancient Park. They found Christmas Wreaths & Fir Cones but no rusty chests. Instead Pedro had 2 gold & 1 silver chest while Maya had 2 gold chests.

Ursula Bear & Cornelius Chicken chose the Chapel. They enjoyed chatting with Valeria who helped them search for chests & decorations. They discovered Christmas Lights (complements of the Three Monks) and Tree Trimmings. Ursula also found a rusty chest while Cornelius found 2 silver & one rusty chest.

Bright Eyes Lemur & Steffany Squirrel dashed to the Metro Station where they got into all sorts of strife from being underfoot of the passengers waiting to board the Train Cabin to scrounging through the Baggage Line to creating a mess as they searched the Warden's Office. They each ended up with 1 rusty chest and a few Christmas Wreaths before the Warden sent them on their way for being disruptive.

Many of the pets lamented "Where are the rusty chests?" No - one had 3 rusty chests. The Midnight Castle Challenge was a 'bust' for them.

They were heading to the Christmas Elf to hand over their decorations when Jack-in-a-Box & Sidney Snowman came tearing into the Castle Vicinity.
