The Little Yellow Bird. Part 38. The Triplets Fly

The Little Yellow Bird. The Triplets Fly.

Thursday , March 3, 2011

Daisy , Rosy, and Tulip stood perched on their grandpa's shoulders to prepare to fly.

Daisy said, " Grandpa ! Do you think I can do it . Do you think I can fly to the hedges ?"

Grandpa encouraged Daisy. He said, " Darling , you have the makings of your mama , and of your daddy , and of me and grandma. Sure you can fly. Flap your sweet little wings very fast , and you will reach the hedges."

Daisy took a deep breath. The Red Cross nurse checked Daisy's heart , and pulse and said, " Go ahead, your ready dear. go for it."

Daisy leaped very high, about six inches up in the air and began flapping her wings real fast. She flew about ten feet , and landed on the handle of her grandpa's barbecue grill, and then took a deep breath and flew again , but landed in the hedges. Then Daisy flew back to her grandpa's shoulders.

Grandpa said, " Congratulations Daisy, you did great girl."

Tulip was nervous. She said, " I want to fly too grandma. Do you think I can do it ?"

Grandpa said, " Honey , you can do it. If your sister can fly, you can fly ."

The little Yellow Bird said, " Honey just take a deep breath when your ready, and go for it."

The Red Cross nurse checked Tulip's vitals. Tulip's heart was beating ninety miles per hour. The Red Cross nurse said, " Here, take a sip of this orange juice before you take your leap." The Red Cross nurse also checked Tulip's blood pressure , but the arm band was to large so she had to quickly try a smaller band that did work. Tulips blood pressure was elevated a little so the nurse gave her another sip of orange juice.

Tulip took a sip of orange juice , and the Red Cross nurse wiped a little perspiration off of Tulips forehead , and gave her a little hug. Her two sisters Daisy and Rosy gave Tulip a group hug, and cheered her on.

Tulip took the leap, and landed on little yellow bird's shoulder's after flying twelve feet. Then she saw her daddy walk to the patio, and he said, " Go for it Tulip, you can do it honey."

Tulip's confidence was high. She did it for her daddy, grandpa, grandma, her mama, the Red Cross nurse, and the strategic high command, and for the United States Marines.

Tulip made it from her mama's shoulders to the hedges, and from the hedges back to grandpa. She did just wonderful .

The Red Cross nurse kept supplying the chicks with plenty of orange juice, and with regular blood pressure checks. Even little yellow bird's pediatrician called to ask about the chicks.

Rosy was frightened. She told her grandpa that she loved him very much. Grandpa said, " Now you can do this Rosy. You are a winner Rosy, and you will always be one . "

Rosy's daddy said, " Go ahead and fly girl from your grandpa's shoulders. Make us proud and spread your wings."

Rosy did exactly to the letter just what her daddy said. " Rosy spread her wings. She had a total wing span of two and a half inches. She was awesome.

Her daddy said, " Woo girl , wow ! Look at those wings ! Go for it."

Rosy began flapping her wings. She kept flapping them and her little feet began to rise from her grandfather's shoulders. Rosy hovered above her grandfather's shoulders and landed right back on them again.

The Red Cross nurse quickly brought Rosy some orange juice with a straw. Rosy sucked up almost twelve gallons of orange juice, well at least it seemed that way to Rosy.

The Red Cross nurse wiped Rosy's forehead and told her to go ahead and fly when she felt ready.

Rosy leaped up into the air four inches and flew to her grandma's shoulders, and then flew to her daddy's shoulders, and then to the hedges , and back to grandpa.

Everyone cheered for Rosy.

Rosy received accolades and group hugs, and all the chicks were invited to a trip to MacDonald's by their daddy.

It was a very busy day. The entire family, and security went to eat hamburgers. It was wonderful. They also had delicious pie as well.

As a writer this makes me even very hungry because the yellow bird family eats very well. And come to think of it I might even make myself a sandwich if Joann, and Becky will have one with me.

As it turned out, the chicks practiced flying all day. By the time evening came, everyone was worn out.

God Bless Everyone.

I forgot to comment earlier on how much better the yard is looking! And I can tell you washed down the mobile home too. Our home and yard need many repairs too, some we can handle and many I'm not sure what we'll do about. We've tried hiring high school kids to help out but most expect pretty high pay. A little at a time I guess, just as you've done. You are a real inspiration!

Dear Phoenix : Thank you for writing. And I am glad you like the yard. It is a never ending process.

It is nice when citizens take time to help one another. I find that if only I do one small task outside , it can help to get a task done. God Bless You Precious Heart.
