week. Now here kitty kitty. Then I have a story here. Called the car ride Dragon by Jonathan Lee some of New York New York. Once upon a time there was a dragon whose eyes could be different colors. Everybody thought it was bad but one wise man said you're all too busy reading fairy tales. The dragons are lean. Most dragons probably a very nice. Well nobody believes that. So the dragon was also legit. Made himself small sneaked into the traffic like and their desires read so no one could go. So all the traffic piled up for weeks and no one could go anywhere. They all got angry with each other and started to yell and scream and honk. They went to the wise man and asked him what to do. You'll have to ask the dragon he said it's up to him. So they all started to call for him and suddenly the like turned yellow. Then they all said there was sorry and the
Dragon turned his eyes green. So is the traffic jam cleared up and they all lived happily ever after. That was good. The moral of the story is never decide you don't like someone when you haven't met him on head that's good. Yes I have one and it is by. It is by stand up for your own caseload of Burlington Wisconsin and it is a joke. Oh good. Do you realize George that this room was supposed to be haunted by girls the girls coming back every year on this day at midnight. He looks for a human sacrifice. You know that George George George. If your definition is oh it's so sloppy it's all right. Burning.
Under the rug. Show me it was the got lost in a week you know. And I was sure you animal that's running against the gree was a ruse. Was to muzzle. This is one of my favorite places. It's a really good place to go fishing with your hands. You gotta get the hang of grabbing them because they're all slimy and the first couple of times replied to me it cold gone. I have friends on their back then after a while you really get on your pie comes to life and you wouldn't get called as much.
And they're really fast too. He got to be quick. It won't get out. You got it right. I get. You. I don't. Want. To have. Your life. Where you. Laugh did catch all the fish that made you nearly you first look for a good light gray cookie. You gotta be careful when you dig in the claim with a knife.
Yet I haven't pointed down an out. So you don't hurt someone. And just get a pretty big bucket full or. If he has a long Sure. Then you use that. To put the claim. Oh. After you dig the clay up it's going to be pretty hide so you don't have to get wider on it squish around with your hands or use a rock to pound it down. There's some grass. She's. Mounted so smooth of the kind a little watery so you'd need to add some grass to it. Oh.
How do you stay pretty good while you wait a while till it burns down so it's mostly just cause then you move it over and then you take the fish in the clay. You move from where the fire was in the hard ground when you moved the fire back with some sticks back on top of that. And then you just went around 15 to 20 minutes. After the cold brushed off the fish. You should take a stick when you pull the clay and see if it's hard life walks around and you know it's done. When you push push them aside to cool ground. So when you try to cut it open you know stop. After it's cooled off you can sometimes see where the outline of the fish is and then you cut around it and then you take the top line. As fish comes out of.
It tastes good too. You can have the first bite. OK. It's really fun to stand alone like quit a friend or. A brother or something and do it all yourself like living out in the wild. So unlike a caveman in dorm things to sell. And then. See what you come up with. Here's a book for Nick Binod on Newton Highlands mass. She rolling and it's called. So you want to be a big fish. Once upon a time live the loneliest smallest fish in the world. He lives in the big blue sea with all the big fish. The little fish didn't have any friends because he was so small he decided

Elul fish say now that I'm so big I can go with them and the other on the other side of the sea the big fish of course Caillou fish on the other side of the sea. And one of the big fish. Well have fun on the way to the other side of the sea. A boat came along with two children and one of the children said hey this is a school of fish Johnny I'm puttin it down. Oh oh they got a current set of little fish.

Series Description
"ZOOM is a children's show comprised of weekly half-hour episodes which showed what youngsters do and think. Seven ZOOMers hosted each episdoe, and the cast changed over run of series. ZOOM premiered locally as ""Summer-Do"" in 1970, and premiered nationally in January 1972. ZOOMers played games, told jokes, riddles (called Fannee Doolees) and stories and did crafts projects...and invited ideas from their audience. The result was an avalanche of ZOOMmail - in the first season, over 200,000 letters. Additionally, the Ubbi Dubbi language was invented by ZOOM."
