Abruptly his musing was interrupted by those pesky young kids from around the corner. With a creak of bones and a bit of effort, the OLD man chases them from his front yard (going under a ladder and avoids tripping over a black cat but crossed in it's path) his shouts of respect my privacy, young whippersnappers echoing down the street.

Tired out he returns to his comfortable chair with the help of those friendly neighborhood kids next door and decides that enough is enough!

On this day we are proud to announce the existence of The Order of Liberty and Defense, protected by Doom Squad and MI6
