Weekend Sleepover With Allie

I'm still awake because of that scary ghost story that Allie told me. I don't want to wake Allie to ask her about it, so I'm trying to find out online if the story really happened in this neighborhood, like she said.

Allie got out the popcorn popper, and we made a large batch of popcorn and told each other ghost stories. Allie told one that really frightened me.

Allie tried on some of the clothes we found in the upstairs hall closet. She sure looks goofy in that giant hat.

In the upstairs hall closet, Allie and I found the perfect material for curtains for our tree house.

Allie and I just got back from a nice long walk through the woods. We saw the perfect tree for a tree house, and now we're going to get out some paper to draw up the designs. We didn't see any pretty birds, so we left the birdseed in a big pile by our favorite tree. I hope that when we go back to build the tree house, there will be lots of birds.

Grandmother Winsome's Tips For Better Living

When renting a car, you are often required to return it with a full tank of gas. However, rental agreements say nothing regarding the car's other fluids. So be sure to drain the car of its oil, brake fluid, coolant, transmission fluid, power steering fluid and windshield wiper fluid. That way, you get a little extra for your money.

Cindy's New Best Friend

I am so excited! Tomorrow right after school Allie is coming over to spend the weekend. All week we've been making plans and adding to our list of things to do. One of Allie's suggestions is a long walk through the woods, so that is something we plan to do on Saturday. We're going to take along some birdseed in case we see some pretty birds.

Edward's Traveling Massage Parlor

Business continues to boom for my traveling massage parlor. However, last night I got caught in the snowstorm. I had a client with me when the snow hit, and we had to buckle down for the night in the back of the truck until the storm passed. It was a good thing I had that extra blanket. I’m sure his parents were grateful when I dropped him off, all toasty warm, this morning at the corner near their house.

Cindy's New Best Friend

I'm so excited because Allie's parents are letting her stay at my house this weekend. We're going to have so much fun. I'm making a list of all the things we can do. So far my list includes hide and seek, bake cookies, put on perfume and play dress-up, comb each other's hair, look for cats. I can't believe it's only Monday. Friday seems years away.

A Fan's Super Bowl Activities

Hi, Kiddies. Today I got a new message from longtime fan Chuck of West Virginia. I'm always happy to hear from him. Chuck writes: "Good news, Grandmother! I'm going to be in Phoenix next weekend for the big game. Though I have a lot of money riding on the outcome, I don't actually have a ticket. That's okay, because I'm going for a completely different reason. I recently watched a documentary film that said that the Super Bowl is the number one day for prostitutes. They actually ship them in from all over the place to satisfy the needs of football fans. The pickings are usually pretty slim here in West Virginia, so I am very excited to check out a wider selection. I might even try Mexican. Depending on how my bets go, I may want to extend my stay. Although the documentary was excellent in providing details about this special facet of the Super Bowl, it failed to mention when the prostitutes are shipped out again. Do you know how long the whores stick around after the game?"

Well, Chuck, most of the people who go to the game will not be able to fly out that night, and those who bet on the losing team will likely desire the comfort provided by a prostitute. So girls will be available for at least a day or two after the game. By Wednesday, most of them will be on their way to New Orleans in preparation for the Mardi Gras celebrations. But if your winnings are substantial, you should have no trouble persuading your favorite hooker to stay an extra day or two.

Cindy's New Best Friend

Allie came over after school today and showed me how to set up the popcorn popper. We ate popcorn while we did our homework.

Edward's "For Your Information"

Some of the better grammar schools have swim teams, and those meets are free to the public.

Cindy's New Best Friend

I can't wait to get back to school on Monday to see my new best friend, Allie. I wanted to invite her over today, but her family is making her stay home to finish unpacking her toys and clothes from the move. So I helped Grandmother with one of her experiments, and wrote a note about it to give to Allie on Monday.

Cindy's New Best Friend

School is so much more enjoyable now that Allie has moved to town. We try to sit together whenever possible, and during gym class today I chose her as my partner. Because she's new at the school, Allie has some catching up to do, so tonight I'm going to help her with her homework over the phone.

Cindy's New Best Friend

It's a new year, and I have a new best friend. She moved to my town over the holiday break, and started at my school today. Because she's new, she didn't have any friends. My classmates were all ignoring her, and she seemed lonely, so at recess I went to introduce myself. Her name is Alexandra, but she goes by Allie. She forgot to bring her lunch, so I shared mine with her. And now we're best friends. I know we are going to have a lot of fun together.
