A bat flies in over the throng three-deep at the bar and clings upside-down to the rafters above one of the bartenders. There is a crowd around the session (fiddle, xylophone, harp) singing tooralooras. Some thoughtful prep bartender has pre-studded lemons with cloves, so the bat orders a hot whisky, and when it arrives about 3 songs later, takes it over to a high-top where it can be savored while right-side up.
Having downed that, the bat starts looking around... Any large Africans anywhere, or maybe a squid?

A Smiling African Man is serving ready-cooked Fiery Horror meals, while a plump Old Lady is secretly perfecting her Mapouka in a quiet corner.
She winks at the bat, then sings along with the tooralooras.

Oh, yeah: the harpist warbled this as the bat was hanging above the bartender, surprising the bat who'd known it since early childhood but had never heard this penultimate verse, and thus messing up the singing along, being done in ultrasonic frequencies so the musicians didn't notice:

About a maid I'll sing a song
Sing rickety tickety tin
About a maid I'll sing a song
Who didn't have her family long
Not only did she do them wrong
She did every one of them in, them in
She did every one of them in.

One morning in a fit of pique
Sing rickety tickety tin
One morning in a fit of pique
She drowned her father in the creek
The water tasted bad for a week
And we had to make do with gin, with gin
We had to make do with gin

Her mother she could never stand
Sing rickety tickety tin
Her mother she could never stand
And so a cyanide soup she planned
The mother died with the spoon in her hand
And her face in a hideous grin, a grin
He face in a hideous grin.

She weighted her brother down with stones
Sing rickety tickety tin
She weighted her brother down with stones
And sent him off to Davey Jones
All they ever found were some bones
And occasional pieces of skin, of skin
Occasional pieces of skin.

She set her sister's hair on fire
Sing rickety tickety tin
She set her sister's hair on fire
And as the smoke and flame rose higher
Danced around the funeral pyre
Playing a violin, -olin
Playing a violin.

One day she had nothing to do
Sing rickety tickety tin
One day she had nothing to do
She cut her baby brother in two
And served him up as an Irish stew
And invited the neighbours in, -bours in
Invited the neighbours in.

And when at last the police came by
Sing rickety tickety tin
And when at last the police came by
Her little pranks she did not deny
To do so she would have had to lie
And lying she knew was a sin, a sin
And lying she knew was a sin.

And just one thing before I go
Sing rickety tickety tin
And just one thing before I go
There's something I think that you ought to know
They had no proof, so they let her go
And they say that she's tall and thin, and thin
They say that she's tall and thin.

My tragic tale I won't prolong
Sing rickety tickety tin
My tragic tale I won't prolong
I hope you lile my little song
You've yourself to blame if it's too long
You should never have let me begin, begin
You should never have let me begin.

From outside comes the neighing of a rearing horse and the words, "Easy, steady, Big Fellow!" He ties his steed, named Yttrium after the rare earth element, to the hitching rail. Adjusting his sword belt he strides through the Old West Bat Wing Door To The Saloon Door and enters, a beautiful trumpet in his hand.

He says in a commanding voice, "This (and he holds the instrument aloft) is the only trumpet I will ever purchase! Yes! This is the last trump!"

And after he disentangles it from his sword he raises it to his lips.

[somewhere in Darkest Suburbia]

A middle-aged, bespectacled gentleman whose cinnamon-and-salt hair (not salt-and-pepper, since it had been brown rather than black in prior years, and not salt-and-cinnamon, because the cinnamon was still winning narrowly) was rather in need of a trim set down the book he'd been reading. There hadn't been anything so loud as a siren, nor so easily seen in the sky as a Bat-Signal, but he'd felt an unmistakeable thrum in the back of his head. It wasn't so urgent as John Steed telling Mrs. Peel "We're needed", but there was still a certain summoning quality to the thrum that strongly encouraged its recipient to answer.

And so the gentleman padded from living room to kitchen to home office, gathering a glass and a box of crackers as he went, and sat down at his computer.

[further down and further in]

The bespectacled gentleman who walks into the Mudcat through one of its more mundane entrances (tucked into a neighborhood strip mall between a rent-a-mailbox place and a sub sandwich shop) bears a strong resemblance to the one from Darkest Suburbia -- if one subtracts a dozen years, most of the salt from the properly trimmed salt-and-cinnamon hair, and several inches from around the waist. He's also rather better dressed: black slacks, a vividly purple button-down shirt, a lightweight charcoal-colored sweater vest, and a dark tweed driving cap. A wide silver and onyx bracelet snugly encircles his right wrist, a silver ring with a round purple stone occupies his right ring finger, and he carries a slim black walking stick likewise capped in silver, though its inset gem is nearly walnut-sized, ice-blue in color, and cut in a sharp-edged diamond pattern.

On hearing the musicians (and in particular, the last verses of the Lehrer song) he smiles in genuine pleasure, though his eyes sweep the room with no small care. After a moment, he heads for a small table along one wall, neither too near nor too far from the performers, and catches the eye of a passing waitress. "Root beer for me," he says, "and a basket of onion rings, if I might."

"Of course. And a name, sir for the order?"

The gentleman takes a moment before answering. "Put me down as the Agent, capital-A," he says. "Like the Doctor, only not alien. It's rather a long story."

The waitress gives him an are-you-sure look, then shrugs and writes it down.

A rattletrap Blue 2002 Hyundai pulls into the parking lot next to a pool cleaning service truck that says "Dirty Pool?" ,the and Severn gets out, waves to be hatchback in the bell tower and stops to chat with Les tHe Lawn Moor sitting on front keeping watch and finally walks in the front door. He walks slowly up to the bartender, who for years we assumed was an alligator because he was from Louisiana, but was found last year to really be a crocodile, and orders a Zevia Ginger Ale and asks if, since mmario is gone, if anyone in the kitchen can still make one of his famous auroch-on-roll sandwiches, and was told that they still had the ingredients, so he orders one and hopes it will still taste as good with the new kitchen staff in place.

Severn looks at the pool service members cursing because they never had to clean a rather funky Jello pool before. He assumes that Mr. and Mrs. Squid and all the squidlings are outside he magic door in the back that leads to a sunny beach a?l year and cavorting in the ocean until the pool is refilled with Jello.

The bat sends a round of hot whiskies to the musicians, secretly ultrasonically warbling a medley of Ukelele Lady, Borneo Bay, both by association to Hottentots, and Botany Bay, suggested by Borneo Bay.

It clashes horribly with the tooralooras but nobody can notice.

He approaches the bar and orders:

A pickled cabbage and salad cream sandwich
A banana and brown sugar sandwich
A pint of diet Irn Bru.

He checked ahead by retroactive email.

He retires to a comfy sofa takes off his high heel boots (planta fasciitis he explains in response to startled looks and consues the above order slowly and with pleasure.

"Oh I nearly forgot" he says and pulls a peculiar laptop that shimmers in an out of exisstence from his rucksack. He sends an email asking if the tavern can supply his dietry needs. After a few moments he receives an affirmative reply.
"Good" he says "I hate paradoxes".

"Now can anyone direct me to the model railway room?"

Keberoxu,

While the Jello pit is being fully cleaned for the first time in some years, I would think the Squid Family would be outside the back door to the far left that always opens onto a sunny beach.If you don't see them, they are probably underwater, so look under 'W'. If that doesn't work, look under'S' for Squid or 'C' for Cephalopods. That failing,you can go in swimming after them or just stand at the edge of the water and sing out "J-E-L-L-O" like they used to do on the old Jack Benny radio shows after Don Wilson finished reading one of the ghastly Jello recipes that the audience.

However, they are inn fact sequestered in the deep until the pool cleaning crew is finished with the ugly (possibly ugliest) task they've been assigned. To bring them in too early could cause disaster and confusion. They'll be back soon enough....

While the swindlers are gone and there is no Christmas tree, it is safe to lay your belongings on the floor or use one of the lockers in back by the magic door to the beach. Come winter, anything not nailed down becomes tree decorations thanks to Billy The Sqidlet and his cohorts.

The other doors back there could be different things at different times. One led to the Yellow Brick Road one year, but alas, more often than not, they have let other creatures in, such as whales, a giant caterpillar, a huge moth, a flock of bats and other creatures great and small. The beach is the only constant. One opens them cautiously....

The Black Belt Caterpillar Wrestler is led to one of the doors at the back. It has a new notice on it "Hobby rooms". Underneath in smaller lettering it says "Removal of the above notice can lead to temporal and spacial discontinuity".

Inside is a second door with a notice saying "Be aware that entrance to the hobby rooms can be a source of temporal flow rate anomalies. Please do not leave before you enter."

Through the second door is a long corridor with labelled doors. He passes many including "Driftwood collection as art", "Fire walking", "Lithographic repairs", "Oxford comma deletion society, and eventually finds "Railway and railroad modelling, including tramways".

He opens the door and a few lights come on showing a small area in a vast two storey space. He is on an upper floor overlooking row upon row of model railways. Stairways descend between layouts and into the central areas of those that are circular. A sign indicates a stairway to one side and behind him is "Workshops, machine shops, paint shops, casting, etching and 3D printing." The way forward towards the array of layouts is signed "Replica model layout collection, if you cannot find what you seek please ask by speaking aloud using the preface 'I know I've put it somewhere'".

As he moves forward more lights come on, showing layouts that he remembers from his youth and since, The Madder Valley, The Sherwood Section, Lagoona and Silver Waters, Pendon Dartmoor and Vale and many more.

The door behind him closes. Will anyone tamper with the notice outside?

The Black Belt Caterpillar Wrestler returns to the bar accompanied by a remarkably similar looking man. They are chatting and joking together and their clothing gives evidence of there having been a struggle of some sort.

“Well, that should be the last we see of the Sisal String Monster”.
“This is Millimodels, who was to have been my opponent, my otherworld twin” he answers to a question from one of the barmaids, “We were separated before birth”.

“How does that work?”

“I once asked Multivac” says Millimodels, “The reply was ‘The matter admits of no explanation’”

“So, it didn’t know”

“No, it wouldn’t admit to knowing”.

“Anyway, did someone mention crumpets?”

A 6'2" stranger wearing a variable size rucksack materializes outside the tavern door. It is the Black Belt Caterpillar Wrestler - again.

He gets a sudden feeling of déjà vu for the second time.

He looks at the personal timeline setting on his watch.

“Bugger!” he says and turns away muttering “And I was really looking forward to crumpets”.

In mid-Mapouka the Old Lady notices BBCW and hurries over with a steaming plate of lovely buttered crumpets. Smiling African Man helps him off with his variable-size rucksack and he's ushered into the Tavern, where people are chatting and beginning to sing some traditional songs.
A scruffy old white cat is stretched out on a sofa in the corner. It's Sam the Skull!
