the Hammond Organ in The Abominable Dr. Phibes and the fleet of Small Steam Powered Armadillos
The Italian couple who are buying the house called into Napoleon Beelzebub’s Very Strange Victorian Curiosity Shop as they had been passing
and told him they don’t want the huge
organ in our cellar. Well that is a surprise but we are going to take it with
us now. Only it will need twenty men to move it. Hammond
Dad says he will make a fleet of Small Steam Powered Armadillos that the organ can be rested on and they will quietly scurry towards our new house with the organ. Mum said IDIOT to dad. That is rather unfair as dad is very keen on Armadillos and they tend not to malfunction like some of the larger things he makes. I don’t know how many a Fleet of Armadillos is but it must be a lot, that organ weighs lots. It sounds dead cool though, like the Organ in The Abominable Dr. Phibes. We have mentioned him before but not in connection our organ in the cellar (I think?) which hisses and clicks and hums.
I still find it amazing they don’t want it they will live to regret it; there are not many of them left these days, it’s all those plastic digital things that are as dad likes to say rubbish. Mind you; you don’t need a fleet of Small Steam Powered Armadillos to move them or run the risk of being dissolved in acid by a mad doctor. But there is no denying that the old analogue valve driven music has a much better sound than much of the modern stuff, which is why I do African drumming and play a Watkins Rapier 44 guitar.
Anyway the dog and I were in the woods for a while but as it is turning to autumn, the leaves are falling and the cold is making all the critters slow and go into hiding and it was very quiet. Even the crows were not shouting today so maybe winter is closer than we thought. It has been a classic autumn Sunday, me and the dog think we may have to resort to annoying Mr Jenkins next door again if next Sunday is like today, he will like that he has not been in my story for ages……… I just heard a muffled scream from Mr Jenkins so he must be excited about that or may be The Abominable Dr. Phibes has come to see him. See what happens when you rely on the National Health…….. HAHAH Hah hah hah hah ah ah ha ha hah hahah hhHAHAH HAHAHh HAAH hhahahah. Mum said IDIOT again now
