Cover Geordie And The Beam Of Light 7-27-16“Well, I have an idea!Geordie said. He hurried back into his studio. Loud noises came from inside before Geordie shouted, I have it!

He came out carrying a sign that read:

DETOUR

GO AROUND

“Maybe this will help,” Georgie said. “I have to get back to work. I’m close to a breakthrough. Let me know what happens.”

Cordelia peeked inside the door of the dark studio. She could not see anything. “What are you working on?” she asked Geordie. AAAAAB Geordie Page 5 beam of light racing from the field SMALLER-CLOSER 7x10 SIGN for Online

“Where’s the snowman?” Wil cried.

“What could have happened to it?” Joey asked.

They began to run down the block. Their snowman was scattered around the front yard. They stared at the snowy mess.

Robert threw up his hands. “He’s all smashed,” he said.

“What do you say about Bud now, Wil?” Joey asked.

Wil frowned. “Well, maybe Bud didn’t do it,” she said.

“What? It had to be him,” Franny cried.

“You can’t mean it,” Joey added.

Wil said, “Maybe it was an accident. Or, maybe it was somebody else besides Bud.”

Now Robert, Suzie, Franny and Joey were all frowning.

Robert shook his head again. “One batch of cookies and you crumble,” he said. “Look around you, Wil!”

Character Quotes: Janoose watched  Mallard  talking  to  the painter in the factory yard. “He reminds me of someone. Humm. Does he look like the fox, Margie?”
“I didn’t get a good look at him. I do know that the fox is out of jail for stealing feathers from the farm and is in a reform program,” Margie said. “If he steals  feathers  again  there  are  other  feather factories who won’t think twice about taking those stolen feathers no matter how they were gathered. Such a shame.”

We had a volunteer farm watch program once, but everyone kept forgetting to be on the look out for problems just like this,”  Austin reminded everyone.

“Well, as long as Janoose is here we can all rest easy knowing she’ll sound the alarm,”  Gertie said.

“That’s right,”  Catcella said.

Janoose frowned. “Oh, but I won’t be here. I have to go home. And the last flight is tomorrow,” she told them. “Maybe you can be the security guard here?” Molly said.

“No,” Catcella said knowingly, “There is no money for that job.”

Someone looking like the Scarecrow was walking across the yard and heading for the chicken coop.

“Who’s that?” Janoose shouted as the Scarecrow reached the coop.


“I never saw our Scarecrow move before, have you, Janoose?” Molly asked. Then she added, “If he’s trying to scare the hens it won’t work. Everybody knows Scarecrow isn’t really scary.” ~
