This Week in Haven
It was an adventurous weekend for guests of the Fischer’s annual mid-winter masquerade party this past Saturday. The theme of “factual and fictional history” was well received and attendance was good. The first sign that anything was awry was when Vince Teagues, dressed as legendary Mi’kmaq chief L’kimu, was found to have started a small fire in Dan Fischer’s study and was chanting quietly in Míkmawísimk. Throughout the course of the evening all guests appeared to take on the persona of the costumes they wore, including Mike Stropforth, dressed as explorer David Livingstone, who was found wandering Tuwiuwok bluff looking for the Victoria Falls, and Hugh Greenberg, dressed as Isaac Newton, who had disassembled the Fischer’s television set, blender, microwave and range hood in an attempt to create an anti-gravity sled which he claimed would “revolutionize the way we ship goods around the world”.
The hero of the evening was undoubtedly “The Lone Ranger” Dave Teagues, shown here in a photo taken by a guest dressed as the famous WWII war correspondent Ernie Pyle. The Lone Ranger spent his evening carefully trying to keep the party guests safe. By evening’s end he had captured and contained Long John Silver, Cleopatra, and Professor Moriarty, all of whom had been trying to bring harm of one kind or another to their fellow guests. The Lone Ranger was also instrumental in bringing an end to the odd happenings when he realized that the Fischer’s daughter, five year-old Tilly, had awoken late in the evening and wandered downstairs to be confronted with Vince Teagues’ tall and frightening L’kimu. The sight terrified the girl so badly that she hid in a closet, allowing her imagination to run amok with the party guests. When she was discovered and still couldn’t be calmed, Dave Teagues offered her a ride on the stick horse he had brought to the party, which had become a magnificent white stallion. Tilly was so delighted with the beautiful animal that she forgot her fear and within the hour all guests had returned to normal.
