The Little Red Hen is another of the old stories I loved as a kid and now I am making the animals in the story so I can read them to my great grand children. I just finished the Little Red Hen her self.
Here she is ready to go to work. In the story she finds some seeds and asks for help to plant them but has to do it alone. Later she asks for help to harvest the grain, then to bake it into bread and no one will help so she has to do it herself.
Here she is in her apron and with her spoon ready to do the baking. She made cookies in my story so here they are.
On their own cookie sheet and I asked her while she was baking why not make three pies for the three little kittens. They each get a pie in that story. So she did!
They are not attached to the tray so they can go into a different story. They are just like the cookies but a little larger. Now the story of the Three Little Kittens is complete and ready to be read to which ever great grand child I can corner. The story of The Little Red Hen needs a duck, which I am working on now. Then a pig and a goose both of which she asked to help and they refused so they got no cookies. And that is what happens to little children who will not help their mothers when asked. Right? I am also still working on Froggy goes a Courting. I keep three or four animals going at the same time so I don’t get too tangled up in any one project. When I start pushing myself on one animal I move to a different on to relax. I also still have Black Mombo to make to finish the story of Little Black Sambo and I have several animals to finish the Swagman story. I do each one as the mood hits me so it does not become a job
Nothing new or exciting happening here. I have been looking at houses with Patty and find that the property in Port St Lucie has really gone up in the last couple years. It is almost back to it’s pre-crash level, which is very good for us as we got this house on a foreclosure. We have put quite a bit into it but never thought we would make a profit on it or even get our money back. Well it looks now as if we are well on our way. It does give us a nice sense of security. So far we have no intentions of selling or moving again so as before all the profits as just a number on a paper but even that is nice. Have a great day.
