Dr. Bob's minions tire away endlessly to help the good Doctor in the name of science,
but with what little downtime they get they would like to share with you fine people! 

Stairwells and Hallways VI

By Sirhc

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls and forgetful midget llamas everywhere! Your friendly neighborhood Catman is here to share and abundance of useless information. Where to start, where to start. I guess I can let you in on a little bitty Secret. Don't tell Dr. Bob... LOL

As I've stated several times before I ... borrow... Equipment from Dr. Bob at times. I think he's starting to get wise of it because I found him of all people snooping around my litter box. He didn't find the entrance to the basement so that's good. If he would have found that I probably would have been a skinned cat.

I have been using some of his equipment, especially the different types of portable generators he plays with and I have found something interesting. Based on the idea of not only multiple dimensions but differences in space time and everything else I found a really cool place. I think that's why I'm running a little late with getting my projects built for the good Dr. Bob.

I found a place? Maybe that's not the right word , a world? That doesn't seem too much different than here. The area the portal opens up is nothing but trees. The ground doesn't feel like solid dirt, it feels more like a very fine sand. I did some experiments and took a look around and did some digging and found out that the sand is well over 8 feet deep. The trunks of the trees the well below the depth that I dug in the sand. There's got to be dirt under there somewhere but I didn't find any at around 8 feet. The sand itself is solid enough that you don't sink but it does still give under your feet as you walk. It does seem a little bit more solid than this and we have here on Earth but just as easy to dig into. The trees are tall and the trunks are over 3 foot in diameter. The canopy of the trees is really high. It almost looks like a big umbrella with beams of sunlight piercing through every now and then. I don't know the temperature of this place but it was comfortable. I've went through the portal back to this place a couple times and every time there is just a light Breeze winding its way through the tree trunks and the weather isn't changing that much.

I have walked in several miles in every direction and I'm not finding anything. No other forms of life for civilization or industry or nothing. There's gotta be something but I have no idea where it is. Could the animals or people living here be up in the canopy of the trees? Maybe they're under the sand somewhere? I'm going to keep coming back to this place and I'm going to see what I find. I do have to admit this place is a definite change from being back with my cat tree and litter box in our world.

Until next time
