Jake’s New Neighbor

 “Hey Jake!” called Midge and Booker-T as they entered the yard at Jake’s house.
“Hey you guys!” said Jake. “What are you two doing?”
“Do you want to go to the park today?” asked Midge.
“Do you think it is warm enough to go swimming today?” asked Booker-T.
“Maybe it will be a little warmer later in the morning,” said Jake. “I think it is a little cool right now.”
“Are you getting a new neighbor?” asked Midge when the big moving truck pulled into the driveway across the street.
“They started moving in yesterday afternoon,” said Jake.
“Do they have any pets?” asked Booker-T.

Let Your Imagination Go

   Midge and Booker-T stood at the gate to Jake's yard and watched him pacing back and forth across his yard.  “What's he doing?” whispered Booker-T.
   “I don't know,” said Midge. 
   “Do you think he knows we are here?” asked Booker-T.
   “I think he is so busy,” said Midge. “I don't think he has seen us.”
   “What am I going to do Charlene?” said Jake as he stopped and stared at the porch.  “You know I love you.  I will miss you when you go with Henry.”
    “Who is Charlene?” asked Booker-T.
    “I don't think he ever told me who Charlene is,” said Midge.
    “And who is Henry?” asked Booker-T.

Midge Lost in Thought

Midge was sitting on the front porch staring at the sky above, deep in thought and didn't notice Jake and Booker-T as they came through the gate.
   “Midge,” said Jake. “What are you doing?”
   “Midge!” called Booker-T. “Earth to Midge. Are you in there somewhere?”
   “Midge!” called Jake.
   “Oh, hi you guys,” said Midge.  “When did you get here?”
   “We've been here a few minutes calling your name,” said Jake.
   “You were lost in thought somewhere,” said Booker-T.  “Where were you?”

The Strange Songs

“Buffalo girls won't you come out tonight,” sang Jake as he strolled along the sidewalk on his way to Midge's house. “Won't you come out tonight and dance by the light of the moon.”
“Hi Jake,” said Booker-T as he came out his gate and joined Jake on the way to Midge's house.”What are you singing?”
“I was singing about Buffalo girls coming out to dance,” said Jake.
“Dancing Buffaloes?” asked Booker-T. “I didn't know that the buffaloes could dance. Wow, I want to see one of those dancing buffaloes.”
“I didn't know they could dance either,” said Jake. “But the song wants them to dance.”
