The Forces Collided For Johnston--Continued!

Hey Gang!
I'm picking up where I left off on The Forces Collided For Johnston

Thanks to D7ana of Philly Collector for reminding us all that November 
is Native American Heritage Month.  So it is time to follow up on
Chief Running Bear.

When Edward Running Bear got off the phone he was a bit stunned!
Edward:  WOW!
Apenimon: Was that the President?
Edward: Yes it was!  The issue is finally settled!
Apenimon: What did the President say?

He said it was an embarrassment that the issue was drug out so many decades!
That we were to take immediate possession of the land and that others who
were cheated out of their land would be made whole too! He has a plan and
he will be sending people to work with us on it.

The chief was till looking at the phone is disbelief.
Apenimon: So what does this mean for you and our people?

Edward:  It means you get to build a longhouse,... it means
my horses will have space to roam, means our people will have a community, it means
I'm moving and I have to tell my wife we are moving.

Edward:  I know your coming to build the longhouse will be a big time commitment 
for you.  What will your wife say?

Apenimon:  She is from Pennsylvania.  She still has her bother and  second or 
third cousins there.  She will say we are coming too and will want to move 
her business there.  

So Rae won't be the problem.  What will your wife Loraine and family say?

Edward:  I guess I better make that call!

OK, Thanks For Looking!

Now they get to build a whole community! That's a lot of work. I wonder if the women will want to move as easily as the men do.

I think the women will be fine as long as there are some modern conveniences ready when they get there! LOL

Hello from Spain: I really like your photos. The president seems real. The story is very good and interesting ... keep in touch

D7ana said...

I like this story. Nice ending ... except for those who do not want to move. But to have your own space - sweet!

I'm behind on my Native American post - argh. But I will get one out. Promising myself that ;-D Thanks for the reminder and the link!

Thanks for your comments Muff, The grandmommy, Marta, and D7ana!

Muff, it won't be a town. They will live more traditionally in the longhouse. Like a big hotel.

The grandmommy, I will past that modern conveniences should be ready when they get there on to the fellows. I think you have the right idea!

Marta, I think he looks the the president too. I glad you like the story!

D7ana, I think only those who want to move will move.
