"Do you really think there are no larger answers to the small ones we can supply? Miguel, we know there are answers for everything. Unfortunately, we know very few of them."

Robomachiniac Maintence System Balloon Makes
Automated rounds to fix airships, Queen Flo Ferry Boat, carts
and the Sliver and Pottery Peddler's Wagon
Last week I discovered a cart that got pushed to the back of the garage.  With it I found a long story about family members.  This week I found another contraption in a box packed with meter artifacts, and recently sent courtesy of the Midtown Museum in Poohkeepsietomeway.  It wasn't the clock I am still looking to find.  The contraption does include a meter face and hands.  It is the kind of device or machine I've needed to come across for awhile.  The Robomachiniac Maintenance System detects any issues that arise with my airships and ground transportation vehicles.  It sends a beam to the vehicles mechanism that fixes them on the spot - at least in most instances.  There may be times when the system won't work.   

Ruby looks in on Meter Readings
for the Apparatus
It is apparent that Allena, the developer's
niece liked bright colors, and she accurate depicted through
her petroglyphs the need for airships  Hills!
It took longer than expected for the Midtown Ladies Carbon Dating and Authentication Guild to date the machine, because they could not find a crate large enough to house the contraption.  Readers will note that it looks a lot like a hot air balloon.  That is because it is a balloon, fired by air and pushed along by drift from one device in need of repair to another.  Apparently, the original developer knew a little about aetherial technology.  He decided to float the Robomachiniac.  It is not entirely known who designed the cover, but there is  mention in the paperwork of a niece, Allena.  She likely stitched together the canvas balloon cover, before she went off to marry a destitute count's younger brother.   He could not afford a balloon.  Having no use for a cover, count's younger brother sent the cover to machine developer in an effort to solicit sympathy for his wife's situation. 

The ploy worked.  The paperwork also contains a bill of lading in the amount of 5,343 florits, roughly $3,435 per the Authentication staff.  Of course, the staff is never right about exchange rates.  They take the words of others and try to make best guesses - generally and almost always way off.

There are many clues needing to be compiled into a history of the apparatus.  Since I am not a salesperson or a merchandiser I've not yet packed up any of the other items discovered over the past five year either.  The history will be assuredly done by the time the pricing for the replica version of the Robomachiniac Maintenance System is completed.  A film will accompany any sale, to prove that it did indeed make an aerial route.
