Dawn was nine years old, and she had been invited to go to a slumber party with a group of her friends from school. Her friend Lola, who was having the slumber party, only lived about a block away from her house. Dawn's mother had given her permission to go to the party. Dawn was very excited and couldn't wait to go to the party. She knew that it was going to be so much fun. Dawn and her family had just moved to town, and she was still trying to fit in with all of the girls from her school.
Dawn's mother dropped her off at Lola's house. There were twenty girls at the party. All of the girls were in the sixth grade except for Dawn. She was only in the fifth grade and a year younger than everyone else.
Lola had planned a scavenger hunt. She put all of her friends in groups of two girls and gave them lists of what they were searching for. Lola told the girls that they had to stay in their groups and not split up. They started off on their fun adventure going from house to house searching for all of the items on their lists. The first team to find all of the items on their list would win a prize.
Dawn and Mandy were put together as a team. While they were on their scavenger hunt, Mandy told Dawn that she wanted to split up so they could finish faster and win the hunt. Dawn didn't think that was a good idea, and she didn't want to cheat. Mandy started to get angry with Dawn, so Dawn went along with her. They split up, and each girl went to the houses alone. While Dawn was walking by herself and crossing the street, a car with one headlight and a broken windshield pulled up to her. The man inside the car reached over, and the car door flew open. He yelled at her, "Get in the car!" She took off running as fast as she could. She ran up to the closest house and rushed inside without even knocking! The elderly couple that lived in the house was sure surprised to see her come flying through their door. She told them that there was a man trying to force her to get into his car! They went outside and saw him just as he was speeding away. They told her that she was okay; he was gone now. She was scared so she ran back to Lola's house and told her what had happened. Now Lola knew that she had gone on the hunt by herself and that her team had split up to win the hunt. They were caught cheating! Lola was happy that Dawn was okay, but told her that was one of the reasons they were to stay in teams of two.
Soon, all of the girls forgot about what had happened. Everyone stayed in the front yard of Lola's house. They started tumbling in the grass and having fun playing together. It was starting to get very dark outside. Dawn looked down the street, and she saw the car with only one headlight coming again! She yelled at everyone to get into the house because that bad man was coming down the street again! Everyone ran into Lola's house. Lola ran inside and told her mother what was happening. Her mother came outside and didn't see the car with only one headlight. It was gone now. She told all of the girls to stay inside now because it was getting so dark. She went around locking all the doors to her house.
After that Lola started playing music. All of the girls started dancing and laughing. They were having so much fun.
Lola told everyone that they were going to have a séance. Then she said that they were going to try to talk to an old witch from hundreds of years ago. Dawn was scared and didn't want to have a séance. Everyone else wanted to have the séance, so Dawn didn't have a choice. Lola turned off all of the lights. Then the girls got in a big circle and held hands. Lola lit several candles in the middle of the circle. Lola told everyone that they were not to break hands during the séance or the person sitting next to them would have their eyes scratched out by the witch. Dawn was very scared now. They started calling the witch. She held on tight to the hands of each girl beside her. Suddenly, one of the girls holding Dawn's hand broke away from her. Dawn tried to grab her hand back and suddenly the girl started screaming, "My eyes!" Lola jumped up and turned the lights on. Dawn looked over at the girl sitting next to her. She saw blood around both of her eyes! Dawn started screaming! Suddenly everyone started laughing! It was all a big joke that they had played on her. She didn't think it was very funny, and it had scared her. The girl had smeared ketchup all over her eyes to make it look like blood. They had all planned this joke on Dawn. Everyone knew that Dawn didn't like séances and was afraid of them. Dawn was the youngest girl there, and she felt like they were all picking on her. She didn't think it was right. Lola's mom came in and told everyone they needed to settle down. Then she told them to start getting ready for bed.
I am 5,000 years old, and I cannot wait for someone to find me and finally set me free. My name is Ammon, and I am a genie. I am trapped in my lamp and buried deep in the sand somewhere in the desert of Egypt.
Wait just a minute. I hear someone digging nearby. Maybe they will find me! I hope they are nice. I want a nice master this time. My last master was a very mean old man. I did not like him at all. He was the one that trapped me in my lamp and buried me in the sand! He became angry with me because I would not do something bad that he wanted. Someone is picking up my lamp now. They have found me! They are opening the lid to my lamp, and I am free at last! It is a young girl who has found me. She was very shocked when I came floating out of my lamp in a puff of red smoke. I told her that I was a genie, and she was my new master. She was very excited because she knew that genies could grant wishes. She could not believe that she found a genie lamp. She said she thought I was a very cute genie too.
I told her my name was Ammon. Ammon is an Egyptian name that means "unseen" or "hidden." She told me her name was Nile, and it is also an Egyptian name that means "from the Nile." She also told me that she decided to dig around in the sand that afternoon by her house. She said she loved to dig in the sand because she would always find old things there. One day she found an old gold coin! She told me that this was the best thing she had ever found while living in Egypt. She said she was born in Egypt, and she was ten years old. She said her mother was from The United States and was born in Texas. She was amazed when I told her that I was 5,000 years old! All genies live to be one million years old! I asked her what year it was. When she told me what year it was, I realized I had been buried in the sand for almost 100 years!
She told me that her first wish was to ride a camel. She had always wanted to ride a camel since she was a little girl. POOF! I granted her first wish, and suddenly a camel appeared out of a huge puff of white smoke! I took her riding on the camel all around the pyramids of Egypt. We had so much fun that day. I told her that I would grant her one wish every day.
Later that day, she told me to get back into my lamp so she could bring me home with her. She said she would have to hide me from her mother. I did not want to get back into my lamp so soon, but I did. She took me to her house. She was a beautiful young girl and very sweet. I was very happy to have such a nice master this time.
Nile hid me in her room that night. She was so excited that she could hardly sleep. She knew that the fun was about to begin. I slept in my lamp. I told her that I could make myself invisible if I ever heard her mother coming into her room when I was out of my lamp. She was glad to hear that. She didn't want her mother finding me. She knew her mother would never believe that I was a genie. She said we would have to be very careful.
Nile told me that she was afraid it had just been a dream. She was so glad to see me there when she woke up the next morning. That day, Nile took me with her when she left her house. I asked her what her second wish was for the day. She told me that she wanted to go exploring inside a tomb. POOF! After a huge puff of white smoke, we were inside a tomb! We went exploring all through the old tomb. We saw a bunch of gold treasures placed all around the tomb. Everything in the tomb was hundreds of years old. We had another great day. My new master was so much fun to be around. I told her that I would always protect her too.
Mama and Dad, you used to be nice.
Now you’re not and I’m paying the price.
Mama and Dad, you used to live together.
Now you don’t. You’ve left each other forever.
Life is so hard, now that I have to choose.
If I choose your house Dad, will Mama lose?
It’s never easy when a kid has to pick.
If I choose your house Mama, will Dad’s heart be sick?
Think about me and how I feel.
Divorce is not pretend. It’s for real.
Can’t you get along and once more be friends?
Can’t you love each other again the way God intends?
It is starting to get dark and I am still lost. I am so hungry and thirsty. I am searching for a creek so I can at least get a drink of water. I have never been so hungry in my entire life. I feel like I am starving to death. I am getting weak. I dug a hole under the fence and escaped from my home. I have been roaming all around the streets and pastures in Sherman, Texas. One day, a young woman felt sorry for me and threw me a piece of ham. I finally found a creek and I am lapping up the water. The fresh cold water tastes so good. I don't see anything around the creek that I can eat. If only I could find something to eat. I guess I will just lay down here by the creek and spend the night. That way I can have a nice cool drink of water when I get up in the morning. I am sleeping now and having sweet dreams about eating lots of food. I wish I had a large bone for a snack too.
It is morning and I am drinking water at the creek again. Suddenly, a man appears with a huge net! He starts chasing me and catches me in his net! He is a dogcatcher. He takes me to an animal shelter in Sherman where I am put in a large cage with two Great Pyrenees dogs. I am a Great Pyrenees dog too, so I am sure glad to see them. I am very skinny because I haven't had enough to eat in so long. My bones are sticking out because I have lost so much weight. I am shaking because I am so scared. I don't know what is going to happen to me. There are lots of dogs that are in cages all around me.
The next day, a man comes and gets me. They give me some shots and return me to my cage. They give us all food and water to drink. I am so glad they gave me some food to eat. I ate every bite and I wanted more. I am starting to feel a little better, but I am still very scared. They weighed me and I only weigh 66 pounds! I should weigh 85 pounds!
Later that day, a woman comes to the shelter and starts looking at all the dogs. She comes over to my cage. She can tell that I am very scared. She starts talking to me. Then she reaches in and starts scratching me behind my ears and rubbing my head. I think she is nice. I like her. I wish she would take me with her and get me out of this place. Oh no! She starts walking away and then she leaves. I wonder if I will ever see her again. I sure hope so. Maybe she will come back for me.
Ten days go by and I am still at the animal shelter. It is very loud here because all the dogs are always barking. I hear someone walking up to my cage. I look up and suddenly I see the same woman who was so nice to me! I am so excited. I start wagging my tail. I am hoping she has come to take me home with her. Yes, she has! They open up my cage and put a leash on me. They hand the leash to her. She takes me outside so I can use the bathroom. She starts talking to me. Then she has me lay down and starts rubbing my chest. She gives me a large bone for a snack. After I eat my bone, she takes me inside the shelter so she can sign all the papers to adopt me! I can't believe I got my large bone I wished for!
Once upon a time, there was a very tiny princess who lived in a very large castle under the sea. She lived on one side of the castle and her brother, the very tiny noble knight, lived on the other side. Both Chance and Harmony were too afraid to go to sleep for fear of invaders.
“Let's have a sleepover,” Harmony suggested. The tiny princess and the tiny noble knight decided to invite all of their friends over to the very large castle so that they could feel safe and get some sleep. Their friends were Pinkie the Whale, Gray Boy the Dolphin, Octess the Octopus, Lizzie the Lizard, Sharkie the Shark and King Greenie the Frog.
“How will we tell them? We don’t have a phone because a whale knocked down a power line,” asked Chance, the tiny noble knight.
“We'll just have to go to each one and tell them about our sleepover,” suggested Harmony, the tiny princess. They decided to wait until the next morning to get an early start.
“What will we do until then?” asked Chance, the tiny noble knight.
“Let's bake some cookies, pies and cakes,” the tiny princess suggested.
“And then what?” her brother asked.
“That's not going to take all night. We are inviting six friends over,” explained the tiny princess. “We can prepare six of our finest rooms in the castle so that each one will have his or her own room. We'll have to make a special bed for Octess because she has eight arms and needs a lot of room to sleep.”
“And then what?” he repeated.
“Must I think of everything?” shouted Harmony, the tiny princess. Then she stomped off through the castle.
“Girls!” mumbled the tiny noble knight.
“Boys!” mumbled the tiny princess. Yet, they worked together all night getting the castle ready for their undersea sleepover.
July 8, 2014, was a very special day at Linda's Bird House because that is the day I was born! I am a teeny tiny little bird. I looked like a little alien when I was first born! I was pretty funny looking because I didn't have any feathers yet. I really did look like some kind of creature from another planet! I am a female cockatiel. My breeder hand-fed me and hand-raised me, so I am very tame. I have a sister that looks just like me!
The cockatiel is a member of the cockatoo family. Cockatiels are native to Australia. Cockatiels can be trained to talk! The males are usually the only ones that will talk. A female can talk, but it is harder to teach them to talk. They are also harder to understand than the males. They love to whistle too! They are very colorful and the males are more colorful than the females. The males have white or yellow heads. The females have grey heads. The males and females both have pretty orange cheeks. There are several different kinds of cockatiels. They love attention and make wonderful family pets because they are very loving. They love to sit on your shoulder. Some cockatiels have lived to be 22 years old! Most cockatiels live about 15 years. The better care you take of your cockatiel, the longer it will live.
A nice woman named Barbara bought me from Linda's Bird House in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, as a gift for her mother. Her mother was afraid of me, so Barbara brought me to live in her house in Norman, Oklahoma. Her niece named me Anna after the star in the movie "Frozen."
Barbara had two parrots. One of her parrots was a Blue Quaker named Blue. Blue started bullying me, and one day he plucked out all my pretty long tail feathers! One of my tail feathers is still all chewed up on the end. Barbara was attached to me, but she knew she needed to find a new home for me because Blue wouldn't stop picking on me. Blue and I were always together, so I don't know why he did that to me! I thought we were friends. He was being a bad boy. It is not nice to bully someone! Blue was much bigger than I was. I screamed when he was doing it, but he wouldn't stop! He just kept on attacking me until he plucked all my tail feathers completely out! I think he was jealous of me! Barbara put me on her shoulder all the time and I don't think he liked her giving me all that attention. He wanted all of her attention.
Barbara gave me to her best friend who lives in Texas. It was a long trip from Oklahoma to Texas. It was late and I finally arrived at my new home. I was very scared. I hissed at my new owner the first time she tried to get me to step up on her finger. I hissed at her again later too. I bit her, but I didn't bite her hard. The next day, I wasn't as scared as I had been the previous day. I stepped up on her finger and she put me on her shoulder. I liked it up there. She was nice to me. She hand-fed me Cheerios and sunflower seeds. Oh how I loved those Cheerios! I loved all the attention too. I started whistling and having fun. I knew that she wasn't going to hurt me, so I wasn't afraid of her anymore. I stopped hissing at her and I didn't try to bite her anymore. She says, "step up" for me to get on her finger. Then she will say, "perch" and I step off on my perch. I have been trained to do this. I let her pet me all the time.
Barbara sent a bag of goodies for me to my new home. She sent a cage, a food bowl, food, two bird beds, some toys, millet spray, and a jungle gym. Yes, a jungle gym! She is such a nice person! I will miss her. She took such good care of me.
I heard two more birds in the house. They started singing and whistling at me. Then they started chirping at me. I liked it and it made me feel at home. I whistled back at them. I looked over and saw two yellow canaries in my room! Canaries are songbirds. The males are the only ones that can sing. Their names are Ricky and Lucy.
I am five months old now and my tail feathers are finally starting to grow back! I can't wait for my feathers to grow back. I need my tail feathers to fly! I have been at my new home for a week now! I have a HUGE cage where I can fly around inside my cage. My new owner lets me out of the cage every day too. She puts me on her shoulder or she puts me on top of the cage where I run around, play and eat. When she puts me on top of the cage, you can hear the pitter patter of my little tiny feet when I run around up there! She starts laughing when she hears it. She thinks it is so adorable. Sometimes when my owner puts me on top of my cage to play, I jump off and try to fly! I can't fly. My feathers have been clipped so I can't fly. Plus, my tail feathers haven't grown all the way back yet. It is good for me to try to fly. It is fun too! As soon as I land on the floor, I want to be picked up. I start screaming until my owner picks me up and puts me back up on my cage. I am afraid something will get me if I am on the floor. I don't like it on the floor at all! It is scary!
