- Markshire PCs:
Over the past week, Bel, Walis Sun, me and Bel and the rest, collected just about all oâ€™ the stuff what Frankie was needinâ€™. Sun had most oâ€™ the things already! She gotta hobby oâ€™ collectinâ€™ things. I ainâ€™t got no idea where she stores all oâ€™ it! I think sheâ€™s got a secret place somewhere in the Garden Grotto.
Anyway, the job they give me was ta find six pieces oâ€™ glacial ice. A special rare ice it was! The purest ice in all oâ€™ Markshire! I figured a good place ta start my lookinâ€™ would be in some caves close by. I had a good idea â€˜bout how to get to â€˜em.
One, not too far away with a strong wind always whippinâ€™ through it, just up a bit from Cona and the other always full oâ€™ snakes in the bottom oâ€™ it, just up a bit from Foothold . . . or down a bit from Foothold? Ya know, thatâ€™s the reason I gets lost so much! Even though Iâ€™m fairly sure I gotta go down a ways to get to a place, somehow I always seems ta be travelinâ€™ up ta get down to it!
I ainâ€™t expectinâ€™ anybody to understand any o’ that except me, but Iâ€™m writinâ€™ it down anyway. Must be somethinâ€™ I inher . . . . picked up from me ma. It ainâ€™t so bad if I got a landmark or somethinâ€™ ta go by, ya know? A little stream or a funny lookinâ€™ tree is really helpful!
When I sees it I know Iâ€™m gettingâ€™ close ta where Iâ€™m fixinâ€™ ta get to. Anyways, I spent two whole days lookinâ€™ in those damm caves and I didnâ€™t find no special rare glacial ice at all! Then one night last week, me and a bunch oâ€™ us is standinâ€™ round talkinâ€™ and Bel tells me he knows oâ€™ another cave in the mountains north oâ€™ Cona!
Ta me, that was up from where we was standinâ€™. And he says fer sure theyâ€™ll be some glacial ice fer me ta find! And off we went!
