~Somewhere outside of Nova Scotia, Evening~
George the Valiant was out on the wide-open ocean pulling Shelburne and puffing along. He did make a few stops for refueling but after taking on fuel and getting a spare tank filled in a port in Brest France, he went full speed. Since then, the big tug has not stop to rest at all. He was rather keen on making back home despite having an excuse to why he was late in the first place.
Both he and the sea barge did not speak much during their trip through the Baltic Sea since there was still much to see all around them and they spoke to passing ships. However, once George sailed onto the Atlantic, they spoke amongst themselves. At least George did while Shelburne mostly listened.
"It was sure nice to see France again wasn't it Shelburne?

A TT story teaser
Owan the oil rig was out on the wide open ocean, hunkered down and bracing himself against a wild storm. The sky was gray and misty instead of the beautiful blue. The wind whooshed and screamed all around him. The waves that were once calm and gentle were now ferocious and pounded the pillars that made him stand strong. Owan has been out in storms before and could handle it as long as his anchor cables were sturdy and kept him grounded. But it didn't mean he had to enjoy it much. He would rather be in the Big Harbor; safe.  Since compared to a storm in the harbor to out on the ocean, the former is far tamer. But his work was needed out here.
He did his best to listen to the radio in hopes that the storm would lighten up, but so far nothing. The loud rig stared out across the vicious grey waves but it was misty so he couldn't see very far. There is a rare a occasion he would hear a radio distress call from small boats in need of rescue. Those always made his oil run cold and h

It was still very dark in the big harbor. All the residents were still sleeping snugly in their docks except for the early morning birds… and Bonnie. The female tugboat had a difficult night of sleep from unsettling dreams. After failing to fall back asleep, she decided to stay up and listen to the music of Mother Nature and let her mind zone out. The way she always did back at home when there was nothing she needed to do. She quietly turned on her engine and slipped away from the docks unnoticed.
Hours earlier, she had a wonderful time talking with Brunswick and befriending Bayswater barge. She learned more things about the harbor and more of the residents. And story telling time was quite interesting in itself too. They all wanted to know what it was like up in the

It was late one evening at the Big Harbor. The sun was sinking into the western horizon. Everyone was settling down for the night for a good nights rest. All except the tugboats. Theodore, Hank, Emily, Foduck, George and Bonnie were gathered at the Sandy Beach, where a huge white projecting screen stood. The Dispatcher has given them permission to see a special comedy feature right after the movie that they all agreed upon to see.
"What do you think the special feature is Theodore?" Hank asked. He was squirming with anticipation. Theodore was curious too

~Big Harbor, Nova Scotia~
The sun was beginning to show its descent into the west. Its rays of heat were finally letting up on the ships and barges that could hardly tolerate it. Theodore, Emily and Hank were in the middles of docking the tanker. Emily was once again the tug in charge. Petra the pilot boat was with them earlier to help guide the ship safely into the harbor and has already left.
Emily blew her whistle, instructing them to slow down. "Slowing down!" Theodore called as he slowed his engine. Hank responded too and slowed down as well. Emily smiled as she helped them moved the ship gently into the dock. When the docking was complete, they dropped their tow ropes and pulled them in. Olympia blew her horn in thanks for docking her. "Your welcome." The tugboats

~Helsinki Port, Finland~
It was rather cool over here in beautiful Helsinki. The cold waves lapped against the barges and the ships. To those who were used to a hot summer felt chilled by the Finland breezes but to the residents of the cold country, it was another beautiful summer day. George the Valiant was at the fuel docks to receive a full tank for his trip back home. He actually was late in returning to the Big Harbor but he had a good reason.
~Flashback, Yesterday ~
It was mid morning in the port and George getting ready to pull Shelburne the sea barge. "Ready to go home Shelburne?" George boomed.

Foduck had finally finished inspecting all the anchors in the Big Harbor. Few needed maintenance while one needed a new chain entirely. Earlier the Dispatcher called him on the radio to inspect the cargo ship that came in before it went back out to sea tomorrow. Foduck made his way over to the cargo dock and saw the ship just finishing with unloading all of the cargo. The safety tug floated up to him and blew his horn in greeting. "Hello," He called. "My name is Foduck." The ship blew back his whistle. "Hello Foduck." He replied with a smile in his voice. "I'm Hudson."
Foduck smiled back. "I've been sent here to give you an inspection." He explained. "To make sure you're ship shape to go back out to sea."
The safety tug began to check Hudson over and as he did so, he not

"This is sandy beach," Hank announced as he arrived to the sandy shores. "Isn't it nice?" Bonnie floated around the bend to see a beautiful sandy white beach. She had never seen such a clean beach before. Even the water was so clear that she could see the bottom. Oh there was so much greenery all around the shores. She was beginning to wonder if it was a private beach since she's always known public beaches were never this nice. "Wow." She awed softly. "It is nice."
Hank's smiled brightened. "I know! Sometimes after a storm, Emily, Theodore and I come here to see what the storm washes up on the shore." He began to rumble his engine a little like George does when he tells a story. "One time I found a mermaid here!" Bonnie cocked her fine

Chapter Title: Fodaku!

Later that hot afternoon, Bonnie was returning Barrington barge back to his dock after unloading two loads of long metal tubes at the oil refinery. She learned a bit more about the harbor from the small barge and some of the residents as he learned a little bit about her and where she was from. And he learned what the barges were like at her old harbor too. Barrington was surprised to hear about barges that assisted in putting out fires. And Bonnie was surprised that they had their own cable ship named Digby.
"So there are a lot of small fishing villages nearby?" She asked. Bonnie loved hearing about fishing stories. And the more dangerous they were, the more exciting.
"Yes." He replied.
"Interesting…"

Awhile later, Theodore and Emily were bringing Hudson into the Big Harbor. The sun was boring down on their smoke stacks and the warm waves were lapping against their hulls. Pearl oversaw the towing as Emily and Theodore guided the cargo ship carefully around Willy's Island. The harbor tug was wondering if everyone has met Bonnie yet. He couldn't see where she was on his side. "Hudson?" He called. "Do you where Bonnie is?" Well The cargo ship looked around for his friend but he didn't see her either. "Nope," He said. "Nope I don't- Oh wait there she is! Looks like your Dispatcher put her straight to work."
Theodore smiled; he remembered his first day in the harbor. Though the Dispatcher had him look around instead of putting him to work. He wondered if she missed her fri

Bonnie was finished being checked at the repair docks and was heading to the fuel docks next. The maintenance told her that she was low and need to fill up before she did anything else. Earlier she checked in at the 'Great Ocean Tug and Salvage Company Dock.'
~Flashback~
The female tug sailed into the Big Harbor for the first time. It was much bigger than she anticipated when she saw it from a distance. "I think Prince Rupert is bigger than this." She thought. "Or maybe it's the same."
Oh, there were so many new things to see. She saw a lighthouse as she floated by and way up ahead was a huge bridge that stretched across the harbor. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw the company's insignia flag fluttering above a rotating building. "Oh, that's it.

It was about high noon in the Harbor and it was now hot. Hank was happily talking with Brunswick who was unloading supplies from the warehouse to the shipyards. "I can't wait to see what came in with the cargo ship." The little tugboat grinned. Brunswick was grinning too. "Maybe it's something super exciting!" He said. "Like giant snorkel clams!"
Hank shuddered a bit. He heard what about happened when that big storm came while Theodore was taking emergency supplies to Caliph's Cove. And Brunswick who was carrying the supplies was swept away by the powerful waves in the storm. The poor barge thought he was swallowed by a giant clam, but really he was stuck on some rocks. "But it's something that's supposed to help us. Not scare us."
Brunswick was getting the last of his f

Theodore and Emily were coming towards the edge of the harbor where Blandford buoy resided. Theodore tried to guess what their surprise could even be. "Was it new headlights?" Theodore thought, "Or super strong tow ropes!" He swayed back and forth as he went while Emily calmly floated along behind. She was puzzled on what could possibly come by cargo ship all the way from the other side of the continent. Normally when the tugboats received anything new, they would pick it up from the shipyards instead.
"Emily?" Theodore called to her, turning around and going backwards to face her.
"Yes Theodore?" She asked, watching him where he was going in case he was about to bump into anything.
"Do you have any idea what you think we could be getting? Maybe special bum

It was warm clear summer morning the Big Harbor. The sun was shining brightly over the rocks and water. A gentle ocean breeze blew around the docks and buildings. All the tugs gathered around the Dispatcher and waited for the morning work meeting to begin. All except for George, he was currently on a task overseas. The Dispatcher turned to Theodore, Hank, Emily and Foduck to give out jobs for the day.
"Foduck, today along with safety patrol you'll be inspecting anchors." The Dispatcher said. Foduck gave two whistles to say 'yes sir'. "Hank, you'll be taking Brunswick to unload supplies in the shipyard."
Hank smiled and blew his whistle three times. "Two toots will do Hank." Foduck frowned. Hank gave a sheepish smile in return, glancing back up at their boss. The Dispatcher

Cullen paused on the climb to the Inquisitor's chamber, resting his hand against the wall and reconsidering for perhaps then twelfth time whether or not he should be visiting her in her private rooms. After all, they were hers and she had never invited him to visit her there. Not to mention, if any of their companions or the soldiers had seen him visit... there would be talk.
They were worse gossips than a gaggle of fish wives.
On the other hand, he reasoned, he and Nevena got on well enough, and his reason for visiting was innocent and about business. He was her advisor as well as Commander, and their time together was often so bri

Um...not really much. Well okay maybe a lot. I just don't know how to put it down in words. At least words on a screen. So let's go.

For those who have kept up with my life, I used to live in Virginia as my husband's military job was stationed there. Well last year he finally got out and we felt we needed to move closer to family in Houston. The move itself was a long process as we didn't use professional movers to move our stuff to clear out our house. My son, my MiL and myself stayed with a family member in Texas while hubs drove to and from Virginia with a van full of stuff to put in storage. This took a couple of months while we lived off savings. 

Then came the part of selling the house. We had offers...mostly waaaaay below what we were asking until finally we came to an accord with an offer that wouldn't put us in a hole of debt. While all that was happening, I was up in Northern Texas (not Houston) taking care of my kid and assisting in taking care of two very elderly people. Very stubborn disabled ones. Where internet and getting a signal was deplorable unless I went into town. Hubs stayed with his sister in Houston, while waiting for the house to sell and was finding a job. 

This was our strategy. Me and son stay with hub's uncle while hubs did...just about everything. I know, it sounds bad but he kept insisting that I should watch our kid since two elderly people couldn't keep up with him very well. While hubs looked for a job, I did my best doing research for apartments since we wouldn't be able to afford a house right away. 

Over time, our savings was starting to run out and we still were paying stuff off. So I felt I had to step in and got a job and MiL assisted in putting our son into daycare, which was criminally cheap in that small town. My job wasn't much, I was a simple busser with a $5 hourly wage with a 1 or 2% tip thing based on how well the waitresses got tipped. But my job did help keep savings from running completely out. It didn't stop it but it slowed it long enough for Hubs to find a job. And then we started to build the savings up a little while we waited for our apartment to be available for move in. (We picked out the same complex as his sister)

So after a few weeks, I left my job, and we finally moved down to Houston to be together under one roof again. 

Is that the end? Nope... 

Two weeks later, hub"s uncle passed away. Hubs and MiL helped set up a funeral with other family members while I stayed behind to take care of son and SiL's dog. It was sad but we knew his time was coming soon...maybe just not THAT soon. :( 

Another two weeks later...Hurricane Harvey happened. On my Birthday.

Oh man, Hurricane Harvey. We got lucky. We lived in North East Texas and we weren't in a flood zone and we didn't even lose power. But there was rain for days. Daaaaaaaays. I was starting to wonder if we were gonna get flooded anyway because it didn't stop. Not even our cars got damaged. At least not flood damaged. Something went weird with Hubs car so he's been using mine until we save up enough for his to get looked at and fixed. 

So...things are mostly fine. I've lost family members over the years and gained new ones. I've lost interests and gained new interests. I'm mildly into pokemon. Though more into just reading Nuzlocke comics. I'll come back to playing again. I've picked up on watching Critical Role/ other people play dungeons and dragons. I replayed Lunar Silver Star Complete. That was fun, though I've been told the original Sega CD is much better so I've been watching a LP. Once I've completed that (maybe watch Silver star harmony as well to compare) I'm going to play Lunar 2 Eternal Blue complete, one of my top favorite games.

Like Lunar SSC, I haven't touched Lunar: EBC, since I was a teenager during highschool (I'm 32). Also I never completed the epilogue for EBC either. Even though I knew what happened. (Friends spoiled me on everything back then) It'll be nice to play again after forgetting some details from long ago. I remember major points but mundane, not so. 

Another fun fact: When I was...I had to have just turned 16 or 17 when I was first introduced to Lunar 2 EBC but at the time, I associated with jrpg's with silent cutscenes like in final fantasy before FFX. So when I watched a very spoilery cutscene, my mind was blown when I heard the characters talking. 

I'm starting to get distracted and I can't think of what to type next anymore.
