Booker-T Enters the House

“Hey Jake!” called Booker-T as he strolled up the sidwalk to the front porch. “What are you doing?”

Booker-T leaped up the stairs and Jake wasn't there. “Hmmm,” thought Booker-T. “Wonder where he is this morning.” He ran down the steps and around to the back of the house. No Jake there either. He remembered that Jake said they never locked the doggie door so he poked his head through the door and looked around. He didn't see anyone, so he slowly stepped into the house through the door. He quietly walked to the next room looking around for Jake. The rooms were dark and no where did he see Jake. Suddenly he heard a noise upstairs and he ran for the doggie door and pushed his way back out into the yard. He sat there to catch his breath and thought, “Wow, that was close.” He rested there about a minute and then ran around to the front of the house and saw Jake coming out the front door. His mistress closed the door behind him.

Midge Wants to Ride in the Balloon

“Jake, when will they fly the balloons?” asked Midge.

“I don't think they will fly them tonight,” said Jake. “They will fly them I think in the morning early before the day gets too hot.”

“Can we ride in one of them?” asked Midge.

“No,” said Jake. “How would we ride in one? The man would see us get into the little basket and put us back out.”

“I really want to go up into the air in one of them, Jake,” said Midge. “How do we do it?”

The Balloon Fest

“Hey Midge!” called Booker-T as he ran across the yard to her front porch. “Where are you?”

“I'm here,” said Midge as she came walking from the back yard. “What are you doing this morning?”

“I thought we were going to Jake's together this morning,” said Booker-T. “Since we live right next door to each other, I thought it would be nice if we walk together every morning.”

“That would be good Booker-T,” agreed Midge. “I like that idea. But you aren't always able to come out the door early. You have to wait for your mistress to open your cat door.”

“I know,” said Booker-T. “I heard her telling someone that she was going to be leaving for work an hour earlier now in the mornings and getting off work an hour earlier.”
