The Resolution

Jake met Booker-T on his way to Midge's house. “Hey Booker-T!” called Jake.
“Hi Jake,” greeted Booker-T as he came running from the back of the house. “What are you doing?”
“I want to visit Snappy,” said Jake. “And of course Midge.”
“Me too,” said Booker-t. “I'll go with you.”
The two of them walked the short distance to Midge's house and hurried through the gate.
“Hey Midge,” called Jake. “What are you doing?”
“It's the new year and I'm trying to decide what I want to do,” said Midge. “We need a resolution.”
“We need a what?” asked Jake.
“Why do we want a revolution?” asked Booker-T.

Bungee Jumping

 Jake was sitting on his front porch swing watching the kids riding their new bikes up and down the road. Midge and Booker-T entered the yard and went to the porch.
“Hi Jake,” greeted Midge as she sat down on the ground in front of the porch. “What are you doing?”
“Hi Midge, Booker-T,” said Jake.
“Hi Jake,” smiled Booker-T.
“I was watching all the kids riding around on their new bikes they got for Christmas,” said Jake.   "There sure are a lot of them today.  Nice they can ride with no snow on the ground."
“Lot of kids on our street got new bikes too,” said Midge.
“Christmas is over and now we are starting a new year,” said Jake. "The year went by so fast Midge."
“Remember all the fun we had this past year?” asked Booker-T.
“Oh yes,” smiled Midge. “I'm ready for some new adventures and maybe try some of the old ones again.”
“What kind of new things you want to do?” asked Jake.

A Picnic and Concert

The three friends walked along the sidewalk on their way to the park with their friend Gabby flying above them. As they crossed the street and entered the park, Booker-T said “Hey look over there. What are they doing?”
They stopped and looked at what Booker-T was pointing at.
“Lets go see,” said Midge.
“Looks like they are putting up tents for something,” said Jake.
“Why?” asked Booker-T as they started walking to the area.
When they neared where the men were setting up the tents, Jake saw a large sign near a tree facing the road.
“What does it say, Jake?” asked Booker-T.

Midge and a Trip

 Jake hurried along the sidewalk on his way to Midge's house. As he started to pass the small cafe along the way, he stopped to smell the hamburgers cooking on the grill inside.
Oh,” thought Jake. “They sure do smell good. I really wish I had one now.”
After a few minutes, he started walking to Midge's house again. As he neared the fence gate where Booker-T lives, he slowed down and stood a few minutes looking around for Booker-T.
“Hey Jake!” called Booker-T as he came around the house from the back yard.
“Hey Booker-T,” greeted Jake. “Lets go see hat Midge is doing.”
“I'm coming,” said Booker-T as he joined Jake outside the gate. “I saw you up the street at the cafe. Were you begging for food?”

Midge and Her Buzzing Ear

 Midge crawled outside through the doggie door and walked to the front of the house. She was sitting on the porch when something was buzzing her ear.
“Buzzz buzzz,” she heard in her ear. She shook her head and the buzzing stopped for a minute or two. Then the buzzing started again. She shook her head again and danced around the yard trying to get the buzzing to stop.
Booker-T entered the gate to the yard and stood a moment staring at Midge dancing around like a nut. “Hey Midge!” said Booker-T. “Are you all right?”
“Booker-T,” said Midge. “I keep hearing this buzzing in my ear and I can't make it stop.”
“Is it still doing it?” asked Booker-T looking a bit puzzled.

The Animal with Big Teeth

Jake and Midge hurried inside the zoo building with Booker-T running behind them..
“Come on Booker-T,” said Midge. “What are you doing?”
“I was looking at the zoo train across the street,” said Booker-T. “It sure was fun ridding the train to the big zoo.”
“But we almost had to walk all the way home,” said Jake. “That would have been bad. Our little legs would have really been tired.”
“Lets go see what animals are inside today,” said Midge.
They stood in the middle of the room and look around at the five cages that were inside.
“Look Jake,” said Booker-T. “There is another elephant and three Meecats, a big ape, a zebra and what is that in the corner?”

Humans Sure Are Funny

“Hey Jake!” called Midge as she and Booker-T entered the gate at Jake's house. “Where are you? I don't see you on the front porch!”
“Isn't he suppose to go to the vet's office today for his shots?” asked Booker-T.
“I don't remember for sure,” said Midge. “I always thought he went to the vet about the same time I do.”
“When do you go?” asked Booker-T.
“I think I go in about two weeks,” said Midge. “My owner always puts it on the calendar with a big letter V on the date.”
“Let's go around to the back of the house and peak in through the doggie door,” suggested Booker-T. “Maybe he was sleeping late.”
“Jake don't usually sleep late,” said Midge. “I hope he isn't sick.”
Booker-T poked his head into the house and looked around. “Come on Midge lets go see if he is in here.”
