Ah yes, a new yarn just meant for spinning. This one centers around one Doctor Miles Pepper. Dr. Pepper was, as you well know, the inventor of the timed-release medicine capsule. There's some additional information that you may not be quite so familiar with, allow me to fill you in.

Dr. Pepper retired from medicine shortly after his famous invention, the timed-release medicine capsule. Dr. Pepper worked long, hard hours perfecting his invention. By the time he was done, his brain was the equivelant of an empty pill capsule, useless garbage.

Anywho, Dr. Pepper needed something new to stimulate his mind. He set out in pursuit of a new challenge. He took up wood carving. He carved figurines of all sorts for the local orphanage that used to occupy this spot.

When you arrive, you'll notice there's no sign of an orphanage here any longer - tragic story. It seems a little orphan girl choked on some medicine and died here. Of course the medicine was in a timed-release capsule.

This destroyed Dr. Pepper and he went mad. He burned down the orphanage, and then tried to commit suicide. He mixed every conceivable medicine together and came up with an elixer. He said his goodbyes, then downed the concoction. Well, unfortunately for him, fortunately for us, he made a wonderful tasting drink.

The police investigator (one Mr. Edward Pibb) took the elixer in for testing and when the results came back, he stole the idea and made a fortune. Dr. Pepper eventually wandered back into these woods and was never heard from again.

Happy Hunting!
