Oddenstein bought a calendar for the swamp, it arrive on 167 low loaders and is currently stacked in 200 ton blocks around the water margin.

The last one he bought was a book thing and it fell to pieces.

He says this new one is the height of solid state technology and he is expecting a big bang once it falls together.

Well there are now 4 cranes and a couple of puffins unloading the low loaders and Oddenstein is busily searching for a herd of elephants and half a dozen rhinos in order to erect this millennium's calendar.

He has even got a slate for examining the Big Bang.

I gather that January has been installed, though he is still tuning the year - got something to do with it being sessile, whatever that is?

Oddenstein has installed a granite clock, it is very small and you need an electron microscope to read the dial.

February has been installed as well, though he now has to install July and August followed by June, it has something to do with thermal capacity and metamorphic resonance.

He's got the rest of the crocs assembling the roof and tapping into the local nuclear power station - move the nice warm water into the swamp [glow in the dark crocodiles], who needs lights?

Oddenstein says, "Thanks for the ball bearings, they're very useful at moving things; we tried logs and axle grease and both of the cranes have developed feather drop and are now freezing and the puffins are on strike because we haven't got any sprats."

That apart July and August on in.

Mind you this is the easy bit, the difficult part is calibrating it for the millennium.

Oddenstein is looking for a name for the new calendar: 'Henge in the swamp' or 'traffic island' or 'Carry On down the swamp' that raises a few laughs, 'Henghist Pod' and his wife 'Senna'.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Annie, there is a voice going 'who is time, its our swamp, isn't it?'

Then another one is saying 'No we have no raccoons'. 'No we have no ring-tailed lemurs'.

Then there is 'Time Bandits' which is where the rings come in, possibly?

Sorry one of those nights. Grin.

Yawn...

Well I seem to be still alive, though I don't seem to be able to move and the refit took much longer than I expected though I must say the new feet are spectacular and I have opposable thumbs on my hands - wow!

My tail is almost 6 inches longer and I've got wrinkles - I feel positively crocodilian.

Oddenstein has had a rebuild over Christmas and Oddment is next in line for a new body.

Though Nell is still working on a brocade tail coat for Oddenstein, a sort of waistcoat with two tails that cover his extended tail.

We did consider putting tail lights in but there is enough corrosive material in the swamp currently, what with the uranium 238 leaking into the swamp from the local power station - the crocs put a pipe into the 'hot' water tank and now the swamp is part of the cooling system.

Ah well at least the background radiation is lower than those areas which have granite or basalt, such as Edinburgh and Cornwall, I have always wondered about the people in those areas.

Of course without a lot of background radiation we would not have genetic mutation and would never have evolved anything more fruitful than an amoeba.
