And some Aliens, a bunch of Evil Turkeys, Brain-washed Garden Gnomes, Androids, and judging from the links at the bottom of this post, a whole slew of characters.
Where we left off....
After rounding up some turkeys and gnomes in the countryside, it was time to head back to Istanbul. But I left some of my trusted friends and an alien clone from my Time Machine, to be sure no gnomes escaped!

Get back here, you red-hatted raskal!
I'll tie you up. ( I learned from Lilac.)
(See Pip's Link Below)
Pip had troubling news. In the city, the gnomes had infiltrated the Bazaar, the Hagia Sophia, and a neighboring castle. It would take a united front to capture them all. And we still didn't know where Evil Freddy was, though we had some clues.

And so, while I headed to the rendezvous point with my De-Evilizer Ray, I gave a silent prayer of thanks. No matter what evil I faced in the future, I knew I would not be alone. I knew my Blogland friends would be there to help.
Sallie once told you she was an unwanted Christmas Present( here ) And I spoke a little about how I met Sallie ( here ) So today, as per Minna Kreb's birthday request, I will tell you about the day my spaceship landed on Earth.
I was lost, scared, and exhilarated. I knew the Nitrogen level was sufficient for my needs but taking off my Nitr0-mask for the first time made my heart race.
Ah, but I was free, free from my duties as future leader of Hicbar. The Earth was my scallop.
I spent weeks exploring, playing, making crop circles-- just because I could. But then my supplies began to dwindle, my spaceship grew lonely, and I began to feel imprisoned, rather than free.
Then I met a Romance Puppy.
"You are looking for a bride?" Sallie asked. "That is so romantic!"
I had never seen it that way before. It was my duty, something expected, to find a strong bride who would survive attacks from the royal family. (Cousins like Evil Freddy.)
"You can stay with me!" Sallie said.
"Your family won't mind?"
"No! My mom, Dawn, is a romance writer. She believes that love conquers all. I'm beginning to believe her, but I"m not sure. Do you believe in the power of love?"
And that is how I came to live with Sallie Marie. And the rest is Hicabarian History.
Happy Thanksgiving, my friends.
Oh, And Frankie, I know exactly what to get Dawn and Sallie this Holiday season. (Check the side bar to see some of their favorite romance authors, some of which have new books out for the Holidays!)
Now to get the rest of the Gnomes and Gobblers!
