The Unusual Building Site by Beano Boy

The wonderful thing about a Dalek is they come in one pose,and they look and do what people expect them to do,and without the need for animated use of movement. So i began to include them in my story`s. You will therefore see what you do not expect to see.

The Unusual Building Site

 All the activity takes place upon the small craft table,which is a pure delight because it slips comfy like under my chair. This makes for easy painting and work a relative ease with the odd,very odd scratch building that sometimes come my way.
However Plans of This and of That, sometimes can take many a Sci- Fi, direction. And  all at the very same time.

The work was going swimmingly well,but working all hours under ones Light Bulb does tend to wear one out on these projects of doing stuff. 

Upon their passing by MayBell mentioned to Fred,"BB`s very tired you know Fred?" __" I know MayBell,He sure does work hard doing his Research Writings,and then this,Whatever this is?" Replied Fred. 

Now upon the subject of good old Fred,he used to be an Uncaring,Ice Cold Recon Exterminator.Yes most certainly that,and as for his age,your guess is as good as mine.He was once a Dalek,but is now a F.R.E.D, known now to his  fans,simply as Fred,and MayBell,is just a sweet MayBell.                                                                                        

"I think BB`s gone to fetch some biscuits from the Cookey Tin, MayBell."___ "Fred,I`ve just had an idea. Lets get some help for him while he is busy Rumpling his way through his favourite munchie ,crunchies." ____ "MayBell I think I can arrange that.O,Boy! This should be Good."

"MayBell,look at them go. Quick and jolly good Fun!"____ " Fred,perhaps this is to quick."____
" No MayBell,I think more help will add,add,and add much more before BB,returns." ____ " Fred you are getting to carried away with all this helping."____ " Don`t be Silly,I`m stood standing here MayBell,and not being carried away.    

The Signal is sent by Fred,and instantly more help arrives.

The new arrivals, (yes that rings a bell), knew what exactly what to do.
Uncanny-Like but True.

While BB`s hot cup of Rosy-lea,is warming down,the fresh assault upon wood piles begin. As does the construction upon this rather fast filling up and overcrowded Building Site. " Move the cup. Push it over the edge." A Red Dalek orders._____ " No,No, Leave it be." Fred over-rules that demand. _ " Fred, your Pepper Pot Alien helpers are getting out of hand." A rather worried MayBell exclaims.

Does this remind anyone of the  Sorcerer`s Apprentice ?

As BB, is heard shuffling along from the kitchen while Humming his favourite Tea Time 
Hum. Zip___________ they are all gone in an instant.  Or in fact half of an instant.

As the working Spec`s were placed upon the table."Gosh! I cannot remember doing these." He said to himself while fetching his cup of tea."I`mm,I am getting rather forgetful of late.",and so it was with his warm cup of tea in one hand,and a shaky plate full of wobbling biscuits in the other that he shuffled off up the stairs and to a comfy warm bed. Mrs B,always make mention of the crumbs in the bed,and BB, always in reply makes mention, " Can`t think how they possibly got there." 



It was one of those days when there seemed far to much to do. Tons of mail arrived,book`s and model figures for the Collection needed checking out,and then Mrs B,kindly reminded me while i sipped away at a rather cold cup of tea,to Hover up all the Cookie Crumbs now upon the bedroom floor.

While trying to master that new beast we bought recently . A beast, that seemed to have a will of its own into deciding in  what direction it wished to go. i yanked the noisy thing along the top landing and swung it madly through the open door way of our bedroom, and finaly got those cookie crumbs along with half a rug sucked up.It seemed a mystery why half a rug would get sucked up in such a hungry way.The look of the new VAX Machine, strangely with its alien  look ,reminded me of those pepper pot aliens in the toy collection. Instantly i had an idea that would free up more time for my writing. ________________Great!

While delegating authority and responsibility i told my two friends, "Remember it is your project of putting to half`s together and so on,and Fred don`t be burning down the house when casting your laser in the direction of cutting and making more pieces. OK?" ____" OK. BB." Fred replied as he  twizzled a turn or two on my hand.____ " Everything is in hand BB,And I`ve got the garden hose fixed to a tap and at the ready," MayBell explained.
And so it was that a new smell of fresh cut wood drifted out of an open window of the Beano residence.  

"It`s not another Hyper drive is it Fred.?"_____ " No MayBell of course not."

"There you are MayBell another batch cut for our project."___ "Great work Fred,but you make sure that you don`t cut the table in half like last time."____ " You`ve always got to bring that up MayBell."_____ " Yes Fred,Better to bring it up,Than you bring us down."____ " I`ll get some help to Carry the pieces through  into the other room." Fred said with a smiling chuckle to his voice. After all Fred has no feature such as an animated smile to his outside appearance,but inside he was quite humorously chuckling away,with the memory of Mrs B`s,best table being parted like a Reppils    Reppik.  ( A funny creature that splits in two every other day. Having eyes in the back of its head it does bounce backwards on the ground of his distant home planet.  )
Another Building Site is underway.

"Check for Square! Check for Square!" A Delek directs.____"What for? Beano Boy never does." Came the rather caustic reply.

"Whats that tune you are humming MayBell?" A rather inquisitive Fred asked.  _____" Oh, It`s just, `HIGH HO,HIGH HO,AND OFF TO WORK WE GO.` From Snow White Fred."_____ " Well i Never. What`s a snow white MayBell? ___ Well,She`s a Walt Disney cartoon character Fred."______" Well I never. You sure are smart MayBell."___" Well thanks Fred,but i aint that bright really i just know a little about lots of things."______" There you are MayBell. That`s being smart. "  Expecting more questions it is at this point MayBell  shakes her head and thinks to herself, `It is going to be one of those days.`

                        As you will see,there is such a full flurry of over active activity. Even though having no legs for running they certainly can move when they have to. It being the case that the `Have To Factor,`is firmly fixed into place upon their mainframe computers.

"Are you sure they are working to plan Fred?"___" Yip! I`ve orginized everything  MayBell." ___ "I`mmm,now I`m worried."____" Don`t be MayBell.I downloaded the Blue Prints myself,from the Internet."____________

"Well they certainly know how to work as a team Fred."_____"Yip!"_____ " They remind me of leaf cutting Ants."___________ "They sure do MayBell."__Reader U know what question is coming next? See you are quite smart 2.

"Fred, Looks like they need more wood."__" Opp`s!__ " What do you mean Fred?"___ " Well I need to order some more MayBell."____ " What? You mean BB,is letting you use his bank details?"______ Fred sighs,a Sigh! And thinks to himself,`It`s going to be one of those days.`

Steps are built up for coming down while others are built down for going up.Yes it`a a hive  of activity that makes sense. One could say___

The work is highly and lowly underway,but certain eyes have set thier sights set upon this rather unusual building site.______ And upon what is being built.


Rather Blue faced and all over Blue Romans. The Plot Thickens!

To be Continued.


The Comic Style Continues

  Whaffle & Lolly Pop Sticks.

"Fred ,how many did you order?"______" 3 Of each MayBell."______ " Fred the invoice is for 2.000 each. That`s 3.900 feet of wood. BB,is going to do his Nut when he see`s this lot." A very worried MayBell declared to Fred.____" Well can`t we....."_____" Can`t we what Fred."_____" Can`t we sweep some under the carpet?" ________" Well Fred, have you not noticed that we have the entire lower floor made of stone?  And another thing their are no carpets."____" MayBell, there are carpets a plenty upstairs? " _____" Fred,Fred,take a look see just how small we are compared with this mountain of sticks that have just arrived. Just how on earth are we going to get over 3.000 feet of these up the stairs?"  _____" MayBell,that`s easy I`ll get help."____ " No,No Fred. We`ll think of something."________" Perhaps,you could eat some MayBell?"____ " Now,now Fred,I am a very fine looking MayBell,and have no wish to increase myself to the size of this wood pile."

It was at this point i entered upon this rather frantic scene,and being quite surprised as i looked intently at the invoice i,said," Fred what a Great Buy. You`ve saved £10.00 for this bulk buy."___ "Wow! BB,You mean I did a right  something for a change?"____" Yes Fred, And it`s OK guys we`ll invite the kiddies in from the court to come visit during the coming Holiday, to make a few What Ever of their very own."____ "Yippee! That will be fun." Declared the fun loving Pepper Pot Fred. As for MayBell, She being a lady had the last word. " That sounds good BB,but make sure they don`t tie me to the railway lines like the last time they came to play. That Toy Story 2 Train,gave me such a Scare!"  I  then had a thought of Mrs B,coming home to the sight of all these Lolly Pop Sticks. I`mmmm,Perhaps i could sweep a few under the carpet? Opp`s! There are none.

Just What Does One Make With  Such A Load?

Yes i,can remember someone saying , "That  could be useful." ____
I replied," Not really. It being a brand new invention it was designed very well,but the Daleks who knocked up such a wonder as this,lost the plans and the operating instructions on how best to snap a Gaul`s neck.

Above shows some new arrivals,and coming from sunny climes ,they did so feel the cold on the new photo shoot table. So much so,that they burn`t that contraption down to the very last stick. It was soon after this that another fellow showed up with the operating instructions.

Below is something they didn`t burn,but which they half - inched,PINCHED!

What am i to do? They seem a very unfriendly bunch.
I know what Remco would say.  BB


  1. I'd like some daleks especially if they help build stuff!

    1. Thanks for commenting Russ.
      I was going through some old photo files and thought I`d use some of the shots in a rather unique way. No Elves to repair shoes,just wood working Daleks,and Fred getting out of hand. If only we could get others to help out now and again. BB

  2. That is absolutely priceless! Brought a beaming smile to my face.

  3. Thank you Michael,for both your visit,and comment.
    Topic designed to bring on a emotive smile. A real bonus is ,your beaming smile. BB
