Q is for Quest






       With swords drawn, Danny and Billy crept silently through the woods, ever diligent.  While pausing to study the map by flashlight, they heard a distant twig snap. 

   

      Something or someone was coming.  Their heartbeats quickened.   The stakes were high.  They must find the treasure before the enemy found it first!   “Danny!  Billy!  Dinner!” yelled mom.

  1. It was such an anti climax!! I almost thought some one was going to get them, but it was mom!! Now I laugh but good fun.
    Love the picture of the truck with all the tangle designs on it.
