I decided to call for even more help in the form of our resident Elven wizard. I went to fetch Master Allanon and explained the situation to him. For some odd reason, I had the distinct impression he was smothering a smile at our predicament, but surely our Elven wizard was above such frivolity.
It took Master Allanon no time at all to dislodge Pooh from our doorway.
We all gathered round to greet our Christmas Eve guest properly....and invited him home for tea and honey.
Our house has moved since I last wrote...into the living room during the "Great Re-arrangement" that recently happened in our person's home. The Christmas tree took up residence right beside the house. It is crowded, but rather nice to look out your door and admire the Christmas tree.
Master Allanon kindly gave us all a boost up so we could climb back to our home with our new resident.
