One overcast morning, about 5am as the city was waking up. Suddenly there was a loud humming noise. The people of the town still in there night clothes ran outside to see what was going on. Behold there were giant lady bugs filling the sky! Most of the town folk ran screaming back into their homes. Betty, Jane, and Elsie ran to the building where 3 of the Lady bugs had landed. They wanted to get a better look at these huge creatures. The closer they got to these bugs the bigger they grew. They seemed to have grown from the size of basketballs to the size of a volkswagan beetle in just minutes. Most of the towns people have turned on their TV sets and called the police to report these giant bugs swarming thru their town. The police have advised them to stay in their house and lock their doors and put on the news to stay informed of futher action. Betty, Jane and Elsie have gone into the building where three of the bugs have landed and climbed the stairs to the second floor and have taken a closer look at the ladybugs and have noticed that one of the lady bugs was carrying a book! Suddenly, all three girls hear something very strange. They are getting mental telepathy messages from the Lady bugs! They are telling the girls that they were all on their way to a ladybug choir rehearsal, when out of nowhere a storm hit. They were hit by lightening and a strong wind blew them into the town! As they were being transported by the wind they noticed that they were increasing in size! Quick thinking Betty suggested they try something she had heard about as a child. She started chanting a little poem she learned as a child. It goes " Lady bug, Lady bug fly away, your house is on fire and your children are safe! Then Jane and Elsie started chanting with her. Right before their very eyes the ladybugs began to shrink and as they did they took flight and flew out of town back to their home!

He has a purpose. The way he’s strutting he is not just doing nothing. He has a purpose. He’s determined. His name is Charles William. He’s in a shopping center. Why does he have a suitcase in the shopping center? He’s just walking around looking at things. He might be getting into trouble. No one is paying any attention to him. He’s all alone.

Charles William is running away from home. He is very determined. He’s looking for his mother. Don’t you think that if you saw a boy this little all alone that you would stop and question him? Charles William has a place to go. He is headed someplace specific. He’s going toward the food court. He’s noticed a favorite thing. He is going for French fries. Hopefully, they won’t be too hot. He is awfully young. This is an odd situation. His parents should be nearby. Maybe his Mom is just behind Charles William.

Eloping

The two penguins are standing on some sand trying to figure out where they are going for an hour or two. They are holding hands and going off to a secret place where people have fun and are romancing. Hubba Hubba is one of the penguins. He is a male. The female's name is Labba Labba. "Lady you have a terrible name." No, her name is Magnet Zoo and they are standing on the edge getting ready to jump into the water. They smell the salty air. They are trying to get off that thing and move on out. They are going to play in the water with one another. I've wandered around there myself and they are going to be loosing weight from exercise. They will be swimming in the bay area, frolicking in the water, and hunting for fish by the jetty. You can hear other penguins chatting in the background. You can also hear farting in the distance. "Oh wow!" Magnet Zoo and Hubba Hubba have at least two family members. They are a mommy and a daddy and are talking to each other in penguin talk (quack... quack...quack) and laughing. Santa is also hanging out with the penguins. There are other penguins there too and they are having a good time because its cold. They will be bowling and playing ping pong with Santa and with their kids. There will be some events going on in the community and they will be checking in with the ladies to see what events will be going on with the kids.
