Lots of kids write and ask to see this pot to sue me again. This week to show some of the most popular segments. So I'm with this. Here's a barrel sent in by Darin Wisconsin. It's called the choose two people to play. Then each one blow up to build ties one to each ankle. The object of the game is to prop your opponent by stepping on them without letting him park your balloons. The last one with the balloon on his ankle.
We try to. Get things out. Yes. But. I am. Really. Right.
I. Like yell you a deal. Right. Do you zoom. I have a sister Beth who has been writing Morgan horses since she was about five years old you know. Morgans which came from New England for the first American breed of horses. The boys are old stuff. I think Beth would make a great zoom guest sign. Grace Jackson for lack looks like a mess. OK let's go. When I change Charlie for a show I have to work not only on how he performs but also on how I handle it so the training period is really for both of us.
When I'm training chali to do the Great I need to use my camions of my hands my legs theory accurately so that he knows how to do a search. We'll see you nice and rounded so they're usually the same size. Good very good. What do you. Mean. Both. With Charlie I have to work on the stretching exercises because when you're in the shell and you line up and the judge comes to look at you you want your horse to look is best. Good boy. That good. I feel proud of bad training Charlie because when he goes to the show and does
well even if he doesn't get a ribbon as long as he pleases me it does make me feel good because I think that I have done something to make him a good horse. A. You. Know. After working with Charlie for an afternoon I love just going up in the woods and let him go and yelping up the road. Sometimes Charlie and I are just in our own world because nobody's theory. I
can just sit back on him and let him take me. He's my friend because if I get them in a war I want toxic mold with somebody but it's not some that go and tell my sister or my parents or my friends or anything but I want to tell somebody that won't repeat it to anybody. Then I go out and I can attack you championing Millie I'll never tell anybody. Here is a story written by Sheila place of East freemen the US it's called The Frog and the queen. One day a little frog went for a walk. He came upon a cream and accidentally fell in trying to save himself. He started to swim. He kicked and kicked and kicked. Finally he
was too tired to kick anymore. But a strange thing had happened. He had kicks so hard and so long that he's no longer in the cup of cream but standing on a pad of butter. To build a tree Lumi need two sticks two stones some string and a low branch. First thing you do is throw the string over the branch. Then you tie one of the sticks to the top and one of the sticks to the bottom. Then you put the two stones on the string that's left over to weight it down. The next thing you do is warp the Loom the warp or the strings that run up and down. You make a loop over the top branch and bring the two ends through it and
pull. And then you tied around the string that came down. After this warped you ready do we stop you take a ball string and you go under one string and over the other the way across one of the things I like about tree Louis's you can use in more things than just yawn. When the bow string runs out and you can start a new one there we've been just anything you can think of.

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."
