Ruby on a mission!

Ruby got the call this morning.

007 is in the gravest of danger.

Although initially shocked.....

...our brave heroine knew that duty called.

She must mount a rescue mission....and fast!

She planned her perilous journey....

She gathered the essentials for dealing with hostage situations....

Whistle....to warn fellow agents - check
Action Man Laser shooter gun thing - check
Plastic revolver - check
Magnifying glass to look for clues - check
Telescope - check
Spy tool thing - check
Crocodile clip/tingling bell torture implement thing - check
Mini Light Sabre - check
Laser proof glasses - check
Rope for tying up baddies or abseiling down buildings - check
PG1 - special agent assistant level 1 - check

Now - how to get there?

Nowhere to put all the kit.

Vicious and scary T-Rex?

Bristol is a long way y'know?! Rexy would tire very quickly without fresh meat.

Bat car?

Too complicated to work ....and a bit on the small size.

The Weasley family Ford Anglia?

Too slow...and inclined to crash into huge willow trees and forests full of spiders!

Aha - Ruby's trusty jeep with it's 3 inch thick steel bodywork and V12 nitrous injection engine - this is just the job!

Within moments Ruby and PG1 are packed...
Good luck Ruby.....

..... stay safe and give those bad guys the full force of your Monkee Power!
oops - she appears to be heading due South! I hope she takes a sharp right turn soon or she'll end up very confused on the Isle of Wight!!!!

It was all going so well until you showed Ruby in her Queeny headscarf and designer shades! Hope she finds 007 in time but not holding my breath!

quiltdude said...

Ha, ha, ha, very good. Hope the rescue mission goes well and 007 doesn't take advantage of such a helpful young lady!!

Ali said...

You and that monkey have altogether too much fun!

Marie said...

Go Ruby!! You Monkees have to stick together.




Jane said...

Lesley thats brilliant, thank you for the laughter its always the best medicine, hope Ruby rescues 007

Michaela said...

If it's not too late, please can Ruby call in for Vera as she wants to help out with the rescue. She will come armed with chocolate and a very big net to catch the evil villains out to hurt poor 007. (We suspect Greg so have gone to the pet shop to find some pigeon bait laced with sleeping powder) (we asked but they were all out of arsenic)

artisbliss said...

How exciting! Do we get another installment?

Gina said...

Yey! Go Ruby! Hope she gets there in time to rescue 007!

trashalou said...

Good luck on your mission Ruby. You will need it!

Bethany Hissong said...

I totally agree with michaela... I think it was that dirty pigeon Greg!!! Thank goodness Ruby was called in! It takes a good woman to make the world right again!!

Monkee Maker said...

Ha ha, I love Ruby in her headscarf and shades! So very Monaco, dahling!

It looks like Ruby has put together a top rescue mission there .... I just fear she may already be too late ....


ps. So how did working from home go today then ....?

Kitty said...

Never mind the 'Queeny headscarf and designer shades' Mrs Locket - I think she looks like Yasser Arafat :-O

Let's hope she manages to rescue 007 - I fear for him, I really do :-(

Good luck Ruby, if you're round our way and need a bed for the night, I'll leave a key under the third stone to the right of the door
PS You might get accosted by our sock monkey, Mr Guggy has an eye for the ladies :)

Leigh said...

Too funny! I love Ruby and her scarf!

Your felting looks fab, great job!!!


I would have loved to have seen Ruby hanging off that motorbike, like most riders do! x

Angela said...

Monkee power to the rescue, go Ruby. Catch the pigeon, catch the pigeon, catch the pigeon.

Julie said...

Whoa! love the headscarf and sunglasses! Rolling on the floor here laughing :o))
Good luck with your mission (should you choose to accept it Ruby). Oh! She has! Fine! Just hope she manages to find Bristol via her secret route - done to confuse the enemy! Hehehe!

Working Mom Knits said...

Good gracious woman! Don't tell your new work-mates that you've gone Monkee Mad!

ps: contrary to LLP I LOVED the scarf and shades - simply bril!

Rachael Rabbit said...

Wow - Ruby has some weapons there!! I love her headscarf .... very funny picture story .... but I suppose for Ruby it was a very serious mission indeed!
