SEA CZAR CITY, THE DIARIES, PAGE 7, MARCH 5 CONTINUED

“What law” asked Donny, “would take a fowl’s cluck on murder?”

“None the less”, I said “much may be revealed.

The Ghost and the Rooster, I’ve heard, often attend Say Nonsense at Elizabeth Bareit Brownteas’ Heatcliff Manor.

If I can get Bareit to invite your uncle to one of her Banqoutes we might have a chance to get old Foggy to come clear.”

I sent Donny off home and had Helen put in a call to Heatcliff.

Turns out Donny had always been suspicious of his drunken uncle but, like Foggy, needed 100% proof.

” ‘The sting is in the play” I quoted, “in which to catch the contents of the Ming,”

There must be a way and I think I have it.

What if Foggy had long ago found the Philosopher’s Bone and followed your mother that fateful night as she was sleep walking with The Phantom Rooster?

She may not have known what hit her but the Rooster just might!”

Foggy claimed there was nothing left.

But there were a tidy some who thought he still had a stash in the Ming Vase in his bedroom.

Donny and Shelay Lee had to mend for themselves.

She took in sewing.

He mended fences.

They grew from tough kids to tougher adults.

They moved to Sea Czar City.

You’d see Donny everywhere with his pug Nacious, while Shelay Lee got quite the rep swinging her crutch in the odd bar fight.

SEA CZAR CITY, THE DIARIES, PAGE 4 MARCH 5 CONTINUED

Donny had been a near child when he and his sister, Shelay Lee with the club foot, had to move in with their Uncle Foggy.

Foggy inherited his dead sister-in-law’s titles, so lorded it over the children.

Foggy kept them in his work house in Smother Goose Landing’s Old London Town.

Foggy was a wastrel and soon lost his title to Waters, author of “A Night To Dismember…The Sinking Of The Satanic”, in a floating crap game.

The Fortune was slowly poured away on women, whiskey and bad businesses.

Foggy bought into both Jack Beanstalk’s Seedy Company and Gladys Gorgon’s Reptile Ranch, where he hoped to find Al Kemmy’s Philosopher’s Bone.
