The Little Yellow Bird. Enjoying The Oldies

Monday, February 14, 2011

The Red Cross nurse and I fed my chicks early this morning. They slung food with their silver spoons everywhere. The nurse got a spoon full of peach cobbler right between her eyes. I patted the little chick's naughty hand, and her eyes welled up with tears. The next thing that happened was she cried , and then the other two joined in, and they all screamed , and yelled , and started slinging all their jello as well.

The Red Cross nurse looked quite disgusted. She walked outside to light a cigarette. I told her those things were not safe. I think the nurse is ready to ship out but if she does , arrangements will be made for me to get other help.

I enjoyed listening to music from the Righteous Brothers. The music was relaxing. I flew to mom and dad's house while the nurse watched over the chicks. Mom told me to bring the chicks along on my next trip over to her house.

Dad was outside changing a spark plug in his riding lawn mower. He had also cleaned up the outdoor barbecue grill. I think he must be planning to cook some meat , or stuff outside. Mom will be glad to get a break from having to have to cook this Sunday coming.

Dad asked me if I had heard anything from my husband. I told him that he called , and that he sent Valentine money in the mail to mom and I. Mom is a lot like I am. She loves any kind of check in the mail, so I will be checking the post office quite soon.

My husband is going threw intense training. It is all classified. Soon he will be going on missions to destroy compounds where strategic plans are designed by enemy forces to do harm to good people who only want peace. My husband will be working with agents and commanders in ways I know nothing about.

Yesterday the nurse and the chicks and I watched the cats in the house trailer. One of my little girl chicks pointed at the black and white cat looking at us from a window. I told my little girl, " That's a naughty kitty honey pie. You do not want to play with no kitties." My little girl chirped like she understood every word I said.

She chirped again which meant she was hungry so I flew to a fast food restaurant and brought home six chocolate shakes. Three were for the chicks, one for the nurse, one was for our armed guard, and one was for me.

The Marine Corp armed guard said, " This is a pretty good chocolate shake. Thank you very much. "

When I flew to the post office I discovered five checks in the mail. I received a Valentine check for a thousand dollars. It was big enough to pay for our utility bills, and for some other bills, and for me to do what I wanted to do for pleasure.

My mom and dad received two checks. One was $300 for Dad, and $300 for mom. Mom and dad went and got dressed after I gave them their checks because they were going shopping.

He also gave the Marine Corp guard, and The Red Cross nurse $300 dollars each for being good friends and for helping us. Even though they earn good money, he gave them gifts for being so helpful to us.

The weather is clearing up nicely outside. Maybe tomorrow I will take the chicks with me to mom and dad's house. I will bring a play pen so the little ones will not break any of my mother's delicate things that are all over her living room furniture.

I will give them a call so they will know we are comming so they can be prepared for our visit.

The Red Cross Nurse and The Marine Corp guard have left for a few days to spend time with their family members for Valentines Day.

My chicks are crawling in my closet to try on my high heel shoes. Somehow they have managed to slip a CD into a stereo phonograph to play one of Cyndi Lauper's hit songs, " Girls Just Want To Have Fun."

Military food seems to have a unique effect on my chicks. My girls are strong, full of energy, and are very intelligent for being so young. It must be all the delicious fruit snacks the girls love. One of my chicks pointed at the old man's split britches on his old blue jeans. The old man was so embarresed and ran into his house . He took them off to have them fixed back up.

I know you like the sound of laughter and I'm surprised if you can't hear mine clear down where you live. I can just see those baby girl chicks in their mama's closet trying on shoes and then Cyndi Lauper's song topped it off just perfectly! You are really developing your creative writing skills and I sure am enjoying reading your stories!

God Bless you and Joann and Becky.

Dear Poohgranma : Thank you for writing, and I am always learning more about writing from you. I think we are in the perfect place to learn a thing or two more about art, literature, cities, history, technology, and more. Learning just never seems to end, but I just wish I would not forget so much. God Bless You Dear Heart, and Goodnight.
