From the 1997 book The Great Kettles: A Tale of Time page 22.
Catch a ride with the Sandman on The Great Kettles' official taxi: the Checker Cab! Along the way, you might see Father Time, Mother Nature, Professor Throttleman or any of the hundreds of colorful characters from the land where imagination makes anything - and everything - possible. (Each piece is sequentially numbered in an old-fashioned meter in the border of this unique print.) - DM
ABOUT THE GREAT KETTLES. The Great Kettles is home to a number of magical figures: The Man in the Moon, The Mystic Mariner, Father Time, The Sandman, The Cloud Keeper, The Cow that Jumped Over the Moon, The Sisters of the Bridge, Trundles, Trolls, Mogg the Giant along with his four brother Giants (one for each season), Vidalia Potts, The Onion Lady, Old Man WinterÂ€Â¦and a population of Shadow Tailors, Fence Viewers, Stone Counters, Scribners, Peddlers, Cooks and Crooks like Kudgell the Wayward Wizard. They have a game called Bowl a Troll where they roll Trolls at large (man-sized) wooden pins. The Troll, unlike a bowling ball, attempts to destroy the pins with a war-axe or sword as he flies into them. The Troll with the most destroyed wooden pins is the winner. - DM

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing.
