 Booker-T and Midge walked along the sidewalk going to Jake's house. As they came down the street, they saw many people in the yard across the street. They were laughing and kids were running and jumping around. Some were standing near a big tree with pretty flowers around it. They entered the yard at Jake's house and found him laying on the swing.
“Hey Jake,” called Midge as she walked to the porch. “Are they having a party over there?”
“Hi Midge,” smiled Jake. “Yes. They have been there since yesterday. They were out there early this morning again.”
“What are they doing?” asked Booker-T. “Why are they pointing that thing at those near the tree? Are they going to shoot them?”

The Baby Doll

 “Hi Midge,” greeted Jake as she entered the yard through the gate.
“Hi Jake,” smiled Midge.
“Where is Booker-T?” asked Jake.
“I didn't see him this morning,” said Midge. “His owner's niece is at the house.”
“Lets go see if he wants to go to the zoo with us,” said Jake.
“Okay,” said Midge as they walked out the gate.
Jake and Midge walked to Booker-T's house. In the front yard they saw a baby buggy but the little girl wasn't around. They walked into the yard.
“Booker-T,” called Jake. “Where are you?”
Oh no,” thought Booker-T where he was laying down. “They can't see me this way.

The Blue Balloon

 The three friends walked along the sidewalk on their way to the park. When they turned the corner, they saw man balloons standing in the old circus grounds again.
“Hey Jake,” said Midge. “Look, the balloons are back. I want to ride in one.”
“You can't ride in one,” said Booker-T. “The chased us away last time we were there.”
“I really want to try, okay,” said Midge. “I can sneak into one of the baskets.”
“Early in the morning they will be setting it all up for the day,” said Midge. “I can try it at that time.”
“Jake,” said Booker-T. “Midge is going to keep on so time to give it up and let her try.”
“I know,” said Jake. “She will try anything at least once.”
“She didn't try the last time they were here because they saw me jump into the basket and took me out of it,” said Booker-T. “So this will be her one time.”

Midge and the Funny Songs

 “I'm walking to New Orleans,” sang Midge as she walked through the gate onto the sidewalk in front of the house.
Booker-T walked to his front gate and met Midge as she came to the front of his house. “Why are you going to New Orleans?” asked Booker-T. “I think it is a long way from here.”
“I'm not going to New Orleans,” said Midge.
“You just said you were going to New Orleans, didn't you?” asked Booker-T.
“When?” asked Midge.
“I just heard you say you were going,” said Booker-T. “I don't want you to go.”
“I was singing a song,” said Midge.
“About walking to New Orleans?” asked Booker-T.

Midge Goes to the Fair

“Hi Midge,” said Jake as he entered the gate at Midge's house. “Hi Booker-T.”
“Hey Jake,” smiled Midge. “What are you doing?”
“Did you know the fair opens here today?” asked Jake.
“Oh yes,” said Midge. “I remember my owner talking about it. She likes going to the fair. I want to go see what is there.”
“I don't think they let animals in the fair,” said Jake.
“There are all kinds of animals at the fair,” said Booker-T. “I saw them on the news. They even have dogs there.”
“I think the dogs that are at the fair are the ones doing tricks,” said Jake.
“I can do tricks too,” said Midge as she started dancing around the yard. “See me, don't you think I'm good.”

What is That Animal

“Hey Jake!” called Midge as she and Booker-T entered the gate at Jake's house.
“Hi Midge,” said Jake. “Hi Booker-T.”
“Lets go to the zoo today,” said Midge. “I want to see what animals are there today. It's been two weeks since we were there.”
“Okay,” said Jake.
The three hurried out the gate and along the sidewalk to the little zoo building. They crossed the street and entered the building. They stood looking around the room.
“Wow, Jake,” said Midge. “There are only three animals here today. What is that funny looking animal in the back corner?”
“I don't know,” said Jake. “Lets go see.”

The Dancing Fire

Jake hurried along the sidewalk on his way to Midge's house. As he passed Booker-T's yard, Booker-T stood at the gate waiting for him.
“Hi Booker-T,” greeted Jake. “What are you doing?”
“I saw you coming so waited for you,” said Booker-T. “Lets go to Midge's house.”
They entered the yard and found Midge sitting on the porch. “What are you doing Midge?”
asked Booker-T.
“I was watching all the people going to the water park today,” said Midge. “Look at the long line over there waiting to go in.”
“Why are so many going today?” asked Jake.
“See that sign on the fence over there?” asked Midge. “It says that there is going to be a show there today.”
“What kind of show?” asked Jake.
“Some kind of water show, it says,” replied Booker-T. “Midge and I saw a fancy truck drive into the back this morning.”
