The General Pettygree blog adventure story, Expedition to Alexandrapour offers a postscript and curtain call here.


See what happened after Col. Lawford and the beautiful Romanov Countess Alexandra were rescued. Afterwards there is a quick curtain call featuring amazing animals, the actual lost ancient City of Alexandrapour and our cast of significant characters one last time. Finally there is my personal thank you for friends who helped with the story. Without them, it would have been greatly diminished in many ways.

Be sure to reach the end to view our celebrated heroes and their final remarks.

I welcome your comments after theirs on the blog or here.
Thank you for your interest and support!


PS You can do this too.

Bill, you have certainly inspired my 'Shenanigans in Baluchistan'. Now if I can just find some breathing room among all those dang tests and papers, I might even get some playing done!

The dialog and writing style seem to come straight out of the period – you have really captured that very well. I don't know how you do it. Add to that some great picture composition and wonderfully painted miniatures and it all adds up to one of the best blogs on the 'net. thumbs up

Could not agree more with Herr Mus.
very inspiring,each time I see a new "chapter" appear here I just can't but have to go, read and enjoy the displays.

Nice work and an excellent narrative.

PS You can do this too.

Such cockeyed optimism must be called Pollyannic. ;->=

Never in my wildest dreams; hat is totally off to you!

What DAF said! Definitely one of the best blogs.

Expedition to Alexandrapour was a gratifying and fun experience. It grew with time and as collections changed; (mine and others) Creating a captioned photo serial story using miniatures and narrative satisfied a personal goal to write an adventure story without writing a book. It also offered an opportunity for personal growth and development.

It also helped that multiple manufacturers often had similarly garbed personalities so Col. Lawford, Countess Alexandra and others could change poses and attitude.

Your interest and support in the audience were vitally significant. Thank you sincerely for your remarks for the past eighteen months here and on the blog.

As Juliet said to Romeo, "Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow."

What's next?

General Pettygree's Surajistan Field Force has awakened and is on the march to The Secret Valley to engage the Tugs.
The last posting was in October 2011. It paused deferring to Expedition to Alexandrapour till now.

Chapter 56: First Contact is nearly completed. We'll see you all again soon.

I'm also pondering a next adventure story. Who knows?
