But enough about the where and when they may decide to visit us. It is more important to determine why they will visit us.
Let us visit their abodes to see if we can determine more about each of them – – –
First; the cabin of Lieutenant Preserved-Fish MacAdam
As I have said before Lieutenant Preserved-Fish MacAdam was a creature of the forest, not much different than those creatures he had hunted and trapped in the Adirondack Mountains. He prided himself in being able to track a wounded bear for ten miles, to haul five beavers from the pond where he caught them – – – back to his cabin in the woods.
But there lies the problem.
The Lieutenant had no corporeal self. He could no longer shoot, trap, hunt, trek or keep up with the maintenance that his cabin required. He became very frustrated with this ether of his new self. The frustration led Preserved-Fish to become morose and cantankerous.
He lost all his drive to keep the cabin in good repair. It eventually lost part of its roof which led to the collapse of a beam or two. This only made his frustration deepen. Lieutenant Preserved-Fish MacAdam can be heard swearing and moving around inside his humble abode.
No one goes to the cabin any longer.
The last tourist to visit the cabin required several days of intense therapy before he returned to anywhere near normal.
