Chicksoons Find Knight in Shining Armor
The Babies, a.k.a. the soon-to-be chicks in their eggs ("chicksoons"), have found their protector.

While dropping off a rough draft of another blog at the Library, I discovered that the Knight in Shining Armor, who stands guard in the Youth Services Department, had wandered next to the YS Information Desk, directly in front of the area in which the incubator (and the eggs/chicksoons) is operating. Click the picture below to read the inserted text (should work, but I make no guarantees):
Knight Takes Up a Defensive Position

You can't see it, but I know that knight has a broadsword in a scabbard, probably behind his back. Even slobberdogs know that swords are double-edged, sharp, pointed, and potentially nasty if you're on the receiving end. Looks like that knight is ready to protect the chicksoons from any foul (or fowl?) play. (Sorry--bad pun.)
I may need to send one of my special feline correspondents to continue coverage of this story for my loyal readers. Hey, Harley ("Jimmy Olsen"), I've got the perfect story for our top "cub" reporter.
