Midge and the Change

   Midge skipped along the sidewalk while she sang a happy little tune.  She hurried around the corner and through the gate at Jake's house.  She leaped up the steps to the porch where Jake was napping on the big lounge chair in the corner.  "Hey Jake!" sang Midge.  "It's time to wake up now.  Your good friend Midge is here to see you."
   "Hi Midge," said Jake.  "You are sure in a good mood this morning."
   "I know," said Midge.  "Don't you love it?"
   "It's great," said Jake.  "But you are always in a good mood but this morning you are even singing. What is up with you this morning?"

Booker-T is Worried

   "Hey Jake!" called Booker-T as he hurried into the yard and up to the porch where Jake was napping on the lounge chair. 
   "What are you up to this morning Booker-T?" asked Jake.
   "I was looking for Midge but she wasn't at home and thought she was over here," said  Booker-T.
   "I haven't seen her this morning yet," said Jake. "I think this is her day to go to the vet."
   "Oh," said Booker-T.  "Maybe that is where she is." 
   "Why were you looking for Midge?" asked Jake.  "Is everything all right?"

Midge Invites Jake

    “Hey Jake!” called Midge as she strolled up the sidewalk to the front porch.  “What are you doing up there?”
     “What does it look like I was doing?” sang Jake.   “Why are you singing what you say?”
    “I’m in a good mood,” said Midge.  “Do you want to come to the house tonight?”
    “Why?” asked Jake. "What is going on at your house tonight?"
    “You don’t want to come to the house?” asked Midge.

Midge wants to Sing

   "Hey Jake," sang Midge as she strolled up the sidewalk to the porch.  "Where are you Jake?  I'm coming up the sidewalk looking for you."
   "Midge," said Jake. "What in the world are you doing? Why are you singing everything you say?"
   "Because I'm practicing to sing," said Midge.
   "But why are you practicing to sing?" asked Jake.  "Why do you need to sing? Dogs don't sing."
   "Why don't they?" asked Midge.  "You hear me singing don't you?"

Jake and his Brain

   "Hey Jake!" called Midge as she hurried up the sidewalk to the front porch.  "What are you doing this morning?"
   "Hi Midge," said Jake as he sat up.  "I was taking a nap."
   "A nap?"  asked Midge. "Why were you taking a nap?  Didn't you just wake up this morning?"
   "I got up about an hour ago," said Jake.  "But I was still sleepy."
   "Wow," said Midge.  "Are you okay?  You don't usually take a nap an hour after you wake up."

Labor Day

   "Hey Midge!" called Jake as he strolled up to the front porch where Midge was lounging on the big chair. 
   "Hi Jake," said Midge.  "What are you doing this morning? You are out really early today."
   "I know," said Jake.  "My mistress got up early to meet some friends for a Labor Day picnic."
   "Labor day," said Midge.  "What is Labor day?  I don't remember hearing my mistress talk about that day."
    "I don't know," said Jake.  "Not sure why they call it labor day because I don't think she labors on labor day."
   "Then why do they call it Labor day?" asked Midge.  "Sounds like a day you will be doing some kind of labor doesn't it?"

Midge Loves the Rain

   “Midge!” called Jake as he hurried up the sidewalk to the front porch. “Where are you?  Are you sleeping up there?”
   “Hi Jake,” said Midge.  “No, I’m not sleeping. What are you doing walking in the rain?”
   “Is that why you didn’t come over to the house this morning?  It's raining.” asked Jake.  “I thought maybe you were sick so I walked over to see how you were doing?”
   “It was raining really hard earlier Jake,” said Midge.  “So I thought I would wait to see if the rain would lighten up before I walked over there.”
