**2016 REVISITED** 

Pawesome Monday greetings supurr pals

Welcome to Part VI of our epically epic and rather explosive report ~ only available here, fur your eyes only in the CFR [Classified File Room], and if mew missed any reports, here are the links:

Part VI

Arms, Ammo, Trucks and The Air Force!

'And Action!'

It took us a few minutes to locate a crane small enough to fit in the shed and then find some straps to secure them to as we hoisted the weasel dudes and Dwight safely to the ground.

"We're going to need a knife," I said, pointing. "To cut these cocoons off."

Smooch whipped out a small bowie knife, the blade glinting in the soft light.

"Mew call that a knife?" Parsley snorted with laughter as he slowly unsheathed his own ten-inch blade. "Now, this is a knife!"  He smirked and sliced it through the air like Zorro with his sword.

The cocooned weasels all gulped audibly as Parsley strode towards them, wielding the blade; the next thirty seconds happened in a complete blur as Parsley cut the weasels free with his mad ninja-knife-skills.

"Woah!" Smooch breathed in awe. "Have mew been practising Parsley?"

Parsley gave us his toothiest grin and replied. "It's amazing what tutorials mew can find on YouTube!"

I shook my head and thought. 'Oh my cod, whateffur next!'  

Dwight was sat on the floor trembling as he took several deep breaths, his yard-dudes were equally traumatized by their ordeal, and Smooch handed them some water and some nibbly-nip snack bars. 

"Dwight," I said aftur a few moments. "What happened dude?"

Dwight's eyes were as big a saucers as he spoke. "It was those vermin squirrels Basil. They ambushed us in the office yesterday while we were having a tea break..." he paused as he took a sip of water. "Then that freaking freak big-ass spider sprayed with some green goo, and then next thing I knew, I woke up hanging from the rafters with my yard-dudes."

"Yeah!" said a yard-dude, his voice shaking. "I've neffur been so scared in all my life... I couldn't move, scream or do anything..." he paused. "Actually, I did do something... I'm going to go get a hose and have a wash."

Smooch gave him a sympathetic smile and helped him up. "Come on," he said gently. "Anypurrdy else need a hose down?"

The three other yard-dudes made a move and followed Smooch outside.

Parsley and I remained as Dwight continued. "Those freaking nutty squirrels took effurything they could carry and stole one of the armoured Saracens and just took off, leaving us at the mercy of the big-ass arachnid freak!"

"Not good," Parsley murmured.

"I thought mew'd sold me out Dwight," I said.

The weasel looked at me sadly. "Basil, I would neffur sell mew out buddy, mew were my furst effur customer and have remained my best customer to this day," he took a breath and sighed deeply. "I'm so sorry that all this happened... those vermin pests got into my computer and took all of the info off, and that's how they must have found mew."

I nodded.

"But mew will neffur know how thankful I am that mew turned up today because if mew hadn't," Dwight paused. "We'd all have ended up like Scruff."

We turned and looked at the pile of red icky goop on the concrete floor.

"May mew rest in peace, Scruff," I said solemnly saluting to the remains of yard-dude number five.

"Oh, he was my best mechanic," Dwight sighed sadly, wiping a tear from his eye. "How will I tell his missus about this?"

"Dwight, mew will find the right wurds at the right time dude," I said softly.

Dwight wiped his eyes and sniffled loudly.  "Your two young cadets are some rare fighting force; they were merciless," Dwight said, quickly changing the subject. "And that was genius to get the flame thrower Basil!"

I shrugged, and Parsley gave him a gentle smile.

"We did what anypurrdy else would have done," I answered.

Dwight shook his head. "No Basil, anypurrdy else would have run and left us to be spidey snacks," he answered resolutely. "Mew have honour. There's not many of us left with that trait today."

I nodded. "This is true Dwight, we are a rare breed bordering on extinction."

"Look, I know it's no consolation, but I am truly sorry that those squirrels found mew because of your connection with me, and I'll do anything to make it up to mew," said Dwight.

"Dwight, dude, buddy, mew were sadly a victim... or fur want of a better wurd a pawn in the P.I.T.H.'s game to get to me," I sighed heavily. "And mew lost one of your bestest yard-dudes due to their hatred fur me, but I will avenge Scruff, and I vow to mew that if it's that last thing I do, I'll take those P.I.T.H.-heads down and bury them."

Dwight nodded. "I know mew will."

"Yeah," Parsley agreed. "Dwight those P.I.T.H.-heads are toast dude, I'll make certain of it."

Dwight and Parsley paw-bumped, and Parsley gave him a vicious smile that freaked the fur off me.

I thought to myself, 'I must put some purrental controls on YouTube when this is all offur.' 

At that moment, Smooch appeared with the remaining yard dudes, all smelling a lot fresher than before.

"What's happening?" he asked.

Dwight suddenly grinned and said. "I think mew need to come with me."

We walked down the aisle and passed the fetid steaming-gooey remains of Shelob's great, great, great, great, etc... grand-spider and arrived at the secret door where I'd been only a short time ago. He swung the door open, and we entered the room I'd taken the flame thrower from earlier. Parsley and Smooch couldn't believe their eyes when they saw all the weaponry.

"OH MY COD!" Smooch breathed in awe as he scanned the room. "I want that one... that one... this one... some of those... that one... OH MY COD I want all of them!" he pointed like a cat possessed at all the firearms.

"Yeah, what he said!" Parsley added. "We'll take it all Dwight!"

The weasel laughed and said. "Guys, take the lot and go raise hell with my blessing," Dwight then yelled to his yard-dudes. "Axel, Blade, Bogey & Finch come get all these weapons and get plenty of ammo fur my pawesome furiends."

A few minutes later, we were out in the compound, and Smooch immediately ran towards a fire engine.

"Whoooaaaa!"  I exclaimed. "That's pawesome!"

Smooch and Parsley were on it, in it and all offur it in seconds, and before I knew what was happening, they were careening around the compound with the lights flashing and siren blaring with Parsley hanging off the back whooping like a crazed kitty.

"I think they like that one," I laughed and made a mental note to check what else Parsley had been watching on YouTube.

"Seems so," Dwight chuckled.

The freebie shopping frenzy continued...

... until I finally said. "Guy's enough we have to go asap; remember Humphrey's MIA and Snowie is freaking out?"

The two heathens looked at me like I was the biggest pawty-pooper in the known cosmos.

"Awwwwwww Basil, mew're no fun," Smooch complained.

"Yeah," agreed Parsley. "We were just getting warmed up!"

Dwight grinned at me and said. "Mew two can come have a weekend with me, and the yard-dudes aftur mew've dealt with eh P.I.T.H-heads, ok?"

Smooch and Parsley beamed excitedly. "Really, a whole weekend with guns, tanks, armoured vehicles and effurything?"

"Sure thing!" Dwight answered. "My compound is your compound, and I'll get the fire engine, trucks and jeep plus the surplus weapons and ammo put on a low-loader and delivered in a couple of days, ok?"

They nodded happily; in fact mew could almost feel the happies radiating from them.

"And the hummer is filled to the brim with as many weapons as Axel, and the guys could fit in with the ammo too of course," Dwight added.

Dwight and I paw-bumped as I climbed into the hummer.  "Thanks dude," I said. "I'll be in touch and organise the weekend fur the heathens."

"See mew soon Dwight, and get the 50 cal ready!" Smooch said.

"Yeah, and the uzi's and H and K's, not fugetting the AK's too!" Parsley added.

Dwight and the yard-dudes waved as drove off, and I said. "Are mew two happy now?"

They turned and grinned at me like Cheshire cats. "Oh, we sure are!" they said in unison.

We'd just pulled out onto the main road when my comms unit buzzed.

"Basil, Basil, come in!" Snowie said urgently.

"Snowie, are mew ok?" I answered as icily tendrils of dread made my hackles rise.

"Basil, we've got a situation," Snowie replied, her voice tense.

"Go ahead," I replied.

"I've just heard from Humphrey, and we've got five hostiles closing fast," she paused. "I repeat five hostiles closing fast!"

I took a moment before I said. "Where's Humphrey?"

"Purredator One is following them, but he's outnumbered," Snowie answered.

This was not good because if I knew Humphrey, five to one odds were just playtime fur him... in his mind... "Oh flip," I replied. "How long till they breach the Mewton-Clawson border?"

"Ten minutes tops," Snowie answered.

I thought about this fur a second as my paw pressed the accelerator all the way down to the floor. "We can't get back in time; we're still about forty minutes away!" I said, my voice edgy.

"What are we going to do?" Snowie asked; her voice was almost a squeak.

"Where's Amber?"

"She's getting weaponed up?" Snowie replied.

"Good, now get C.J. and tell him what's happening, he'll help," I said. "I need to make a call, and I'll be right back!"

I cut the connection with a tap of my paw. Smooch and Parsley looked at me with trepidation. "What's happening Basil?"

I relayed the info to them as quickly as I could, and they began to bristle. "So what now?" Parsley asked.

"I need to make this call!" I said and tapped my phone.

A moment later, I heard ringing.

Ring ring... ring ring... ring ring...

"You have reached Air Base Delta. How may I help you?" a voice said.

"This is Sleeper Agent Basil Widdairs number, two-seven-nine-three-five-eight. I need air assistance right now," I said urgently.

There was a pause on the line as I waited fur confirmation.

I was driving like a maniac when the voice said. "Agent Basil, we have confirmed your identity and location. Where do you need air support?"

"Mewton-Clawson!" I almost growled as my agitation got the better of me. "Let me pass mew to my next in command, and he'll give mew the coordinates."

Smooch and Parsley both grappled fur the phone. "But I'm number two!" Smooch griped as Parsley grabbed the phone.

I shook my head in dismay.

"This is Agent Basil's number two," Parsley said smoothly. "Mew can call me Purredator."

"Go ahead, Purredator," the voice replied.

"The coordinates are..." Parsley said, rambling off the longitude and latitude from memory.

"Copy that, Purredator," the voice replied. "Do you need airstrike?"

"Do we need airstrike?" Parsley asked me.

"Only if the P.I.T.H. attacks furst," I answered as I overtook another Sunday driver. "We don't really want to turn Mewton-Clawson into a civilian war zone if we can help it, but those squirrels are capable of anything right now."

"Air Base Delta, we require repeated fly offur until hostiles retreat," Parsley said. "Airstrike only if hostiles attack furst, I repeat airstrike only if hostiles attack furst."

"Copy that," the voice said. "Five fighter jets have been deployed eta in six minutes and thirty seconds."

I took a deep breath as I careened around several more Sunday drivers. Tapping my comms unit, I said. "Snowie, are mew there?"

"Basil, I'm here, Amber is up-top, and C.J. is getting armed to the teeth; even Horice is out!" she answered.

"I have air support coming. They will be with mew in just offur five minutes," I said quickly. "They will only fire if the P.I.T.H attack, so try not to engage as hopefully when they see my old air force crew they'll retreat."

"Copy that," Snowie said.

"Where's Humphrey?"  I asked.

"He's gone dark!" she answered.

My heart sank at that because knowing Humphrey the way I do could only mean one thing, he was planning an ambush which was really, really, really bad news!

"Is there any way to contact him?" I said urgently, as a brainwave hit me like a shovel in the face. "Wait, get one of the robotic pigeons and send it with a message to him, telling him not to engage in a firefight and do it now, because if he starts shooting, the fighter jets are going to unleash hell."

I heard Snowie's gulp, and she squeaked. "Copy that. I'm on it!"

Gripping the steering wheel tighter, I clenched my teeth and drove like a cat out of hell.

** And Cut **

It's that time of the post again when we bet mew've more questions than mew can shake your tail at!

Such as:

OMC How could mew leave us hanging like that, and we've got a whole day to wait?!! Again!!

Jeez, how lucky are Smoochie and Parsley to get all those new toys?

Were mew really a fighter pilot?

What's it like to fly a fighter jet?

Was your pilot name Top Cat?

Where will mew put all the new trucks and jeep?

How cool is that fire engine? Can we come fur a drive?

What's an H and K gun?

Will mew really let Parsley and Smooch go to Dwight's fur the weekend?

Is Horice going to use his mystical powers?

Does C.J. have field training?


We're sure mew purrobably have many more, but to be honest we can't think of any right now as we've got to get back to Mewton-Clawson like yesterday before it becomes an Armageddon war-zone!

Many thanks fur joining us fur our epic re-run of

Love To Colour? Colouring with Cats #123 ~ Getting Your OM’s on with Mandalas on Mondays ~ Crystal of the Week PLUS **Your Crystal Questions Answered** What Is Sunstone Good For?

Turquoise Mandalas on Mondays Banner 2020 ©BionicBasil® getting your Om's on and unleash Your Zen Harmonies

Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furiends

Welcome to the start of another fun-packed week at BBHQ, and today we're continuing our crystal journey today, and this week, we've got a lovely gemstone to share as Sally asked us; what is Sunstone good for? 

Crystal of The Week


What is sunstone good for?

Sunstone is a beautiful crystal in varying tones of yellows, oranges and browns. It can be an opaque or a translucent stone, and is usually filled with little white iridescent flashes as mew move it in the light; similar to labradorite stones, although no quite as showy.

They come in polished tumbled stones or raw unpolished specimens, either are lovely.Colouring with Cats ©BionicBasil® #123 Crystal of The Week - Sunstone

We have a beautiful large palm stone and a couple of smaller polished tumbles at BBHQ, and Melvyn did make us laugh as it was quite a cold day when we took this picture and he said, "If it's a sunstone, then it must be warm so I'll just snuggle in bed with it and stay warm."  And that's the last we saw of it for a while! MOL

Mandalas on Monday ©BionicBasil® Colouring With Cats Mandala #123 Melvyn Inspecting the Sunstone

 Anyhoo, let's hop right in and tell mew a little about the gem lore surrounding these stunning crystals. These crystals have a lovely energy to them and supposedly bring more joy into your life, so the name is really fitting, as when the sun shines we all feel better.

It is purrportedly a crystal that assists in heightening intuition and aids in allowing the true self to shine brightly. So if mew're in need of a little confidence boost, this may help.

Sunstone as its name suggests is said to be a great facilitator to connect to all things light and spiritual; including being a supurr cleanser of the light body and aura, it is suggested that it can clear all the chakra's, so can be placed on all chakra points with equal success. And if mew're looking for a specific chakra point; the solar plexus would be a great one to start with, and that's found between the ribcage and belly button.

In other texts we've read, it said it's a really good stone for facilitating self-empowerment and adding strength and self-sufficiency to your life. So if mew feel these are areas that mew need to wurk on, this could be the stone for mew.

Another supposedly beneficial attribute is that it can aid in lifting a low mood, especially during the winter months, when sunlight is in short supply and can encourage a more pawstive or optimistic approach to things, increasing interest or enthusiasm where there's a lack.
All in all this a superb crystal for bringing a lightness, vitality and feel-good factor into your home and purrsonal space, and if mew're looking for a great crystal to meditate with, this is one of them.

Mew can also get lovely jewellery made from sunstone; the P.A. did purchase a couple of unset sunstones on one of her trips to Peru, and she had them set into earrings. She's been meaning to buy some faceted beads as she'd like to make a bracelet.

If mew're looking for an uplifting stone to add to your collection, this would be a purrfect addition.

Many thanks for emailing us Sally, and we hope that answered your question.

 If mew have any crystal questions; email us, DM us or ask us in the comments below.
