Amy finished putting away the leftovers in the cooler while Joe put up his camera equipment. Birding was so rewarding. The seasons changed and the birds migrated spring and fall each year. How lovely to sit on the Dock and watch the ducks fly south for the winter. Waving good-bye to them, Joe snapped one last picture for his yearly portfolio.

The earth began to shake. Amy could see walking giant robots across the water getting closer every day.

The Robot General laughed as he watched the humans from his binoculars and ticked off another species. “If only they knew!”

“It’s a museum now.” Carole said.

“This is where all those great songs came from?” Harry asked.

“Yes, sweetie, we wrote most of them here.”

“Mama, why didn’t they ever acknowledge you?”

“Well, this business is cut-throat, and even though I wrote two hits for Dyn-Dyn , there was a complication.”

“Well, I think it stinks – you deserved your name on those songs – just as much as they did.”

Cal was sitting in the sunlit chair when they walked in the room.

“Hey Babe! I see you got my first check.”

“Cal, this is your son Harry.”
