Children's Rhyme's

 “Row row your boat,” sang Midge as she strolled over to Booker-T's house. “Gently down the stream.”
“What are you singing Midge?” asked Booker-T.
“Some song I heard my owners nephew singing one day,” said Midge.
“What is it about?” asked Booker-T.
“Somebody is rowing a boat down some stream somewhere,” said Midge.
“Where are they going in the boat?” asked Booker-T.
“I don't know,” said Midge. “The song never says where they are going.”
“It don't say where they are going?” asked Booker-T.

Snappy Goes for a Swim

 “Hey Midge!” called Jake as he came hurrying through the gate at Midge's house.
“Hi Jake,” said Booker-T as he caught up with Jake.
“Hi,” said Jake. “I didn't see you when I went past your house.”
“I came out the door just as you passed,” said Booker-T. “So I ran to catch up to you.”
“Have you seen Midge this morning?” asked Jake.
“No,” said Booker-T. “Lets go in and see Snappy while we are here. Maybe she is inside eating her breakfast. Her owner just left for work a few minutes ago.”
“Okay,” said Jake. “Hurry.”
They went to the back of the house and as they came around the corner, they stopped and stared at the new pond that now stood in the back yard.
“Wow,” said Booker-T. “Looks like they finished the pond last night after we went home.”

The Wet Cement

 “Hey Look!” said Jake. “Here comes a little tractor.”
“A tractor?” asked Booker-T. “What are they going to do with the tractor?”
“I don't know,” said Midge.
The three watched as a man drove the little tractor to the back yard and stopped in front of the hole. Then the tractor lowered what look like an upside down tub with teeth.
“It looks like a monster,” said Booker-T.
“Oh,” said Midge. “He's digging the hole little deeper with that tractor. Wow, that's cool. That tractor digs holes better than we do.”
As the hole got deeper and wider, the pile of dirt grew bigger and bigger. When the man finished digging the hole and drove the tractor back to the front, Jake ran up the dirt hill and stood on the top.
“Look guys,” Laughed Jake. “I'm king of the hill.”

Pond Construction

 “Hey Midge!” called Jake as he came through the gate. “Where are you?”
“Hi Jake,” said Midge as she came running around the house. “I'm in the back yard. What are you doing?”
“I came to see you,” said Jake. “I see a truck in front of your house.”
“Come on to the back,” said Midge. “The man is here to finish the digging we started. My owner is going to put in the nice pond.”
“Oh, wow,” said Jake. “That is really good.”
“What will be really good?” asked Booker-T as he came around the corner of the house to the back. “Hi you guys.”
“The pond will be good,” said Midge. “My owner is having it put in. See the hole?”

The Pond is Started

 The three friends dug all morning on the hole in the back yard of Midge's house.
“Does it look like it is big enough now?” asked Midge as she sat down beside the hole.
“I think so,” said Booker-T. “What do you think Jake?”
“Well, maybe it is big enough,” agreed Jake.
“What are you guys doing?” asked Gabby as he flew down and landed near the hole.
“We are digging a pond,” said Midge. “Do you want to help?”
“I wouldn't be too good at digging a hole in the ground,” laughed Gabby. “Do you see my little feet?”
“Oh,” said Midge. “I forgot.”
“Looks like it will be a small pond,” said Gabby strolling around the hole. “I think they are bigger than this hole is.”
