After the singers and acrobats, the dancers and tightrope walkers, Edna appeared on stage.
Edna is part of the Skaters Group. She skated to: THE FIRST TIME EVER I SAW YOUR FACE and LOLLYPOP. She made her own costume and said it took her weeks to get it just right.
She did a double axle, which brought everyone to their feet. When finished, Edna received a loud round of appreciative peeps and chirps.
Tonight everyone will celebrate with a huge dinner party, followed by ghost stories in the Horse Barn.
Everyone wishes you a very Happy Valentine’s Day.
I was birdnapped and taken from my warm native land, away from my family, to be sold and kept in a cage. A chicklet heard my pleas for help and later that night, they came to free me. I’m happy at The Coop and while I can’t go back to my original home, I’ve found a home here, where I am loved and appreciated.
Hi. I’m a Guinea Pig. There are quite a few of us at The Coop. We’re happy here. We are sold at pet shops, kept in fish tanks, where we hide, or run on a wheel, most of the time, and are too often neglected by the children we are given to. The chicklets rescued me from a home just like that. They heard me squeaking and grabbed me through the open window and took me to my forever home. I’m so very happy here.
Uh, I’m a cat and I wasn’t rescued, I just wanted to play with this heart thingy. I mean it pings back and forth. You see that, right? Anyway, I just wandered into The Coop one day and was put on a Committee immediately, so I stayed. I’ve been here for a few years and it’s a great place to live. Always a lot going on, but I’m not allowed to chase the mice or Ian, if you know what I mean. It’s still a great place to live. You do see this heart thingy, don’t you? I don’t know what it’s for, but it’s a lot of fun, you just hit it and it moves back and forth.
The audience was thrilled by the stories and seeing as how it was a new act in the program, thought it should be incorporated into every production from now on.
There was a Coloring Contest after a delicious breakfast of heart shaped pancakes and Holly’s fabulous Corn Bread, which is now, sadly, all gone. Everyone was talking about Beth’s Story Time, and how much they loved the books she read. She kindly donated them to their library and they are so happy they can borrow them whenever they like.
A batch of Melanie’s Cookies were found in the back of the Horse Barn but they were eaten during the Pajama Party. It’s a very cold, crisp day and the chicklets and their guests are planning a visit to the Sewing Costume Building to see Resa’s sign, now that it’s properly hung up and the costumes inside.
After that they are going to the Party Barn for one very early act and games.
There is a busy day ahead and everyone is very excited.
…the chicklets are using it as the sign in the front of the Sewing Committee’s Hall of Fame. Inside the Sewing Hall of Fame, the lovely Art Gowns, as well of some of the things made by the chicklets and their friends, are beautifully displayed on proper mannequins, in all shapes and sizes, so that everyone can enjoy seeing them once again.
There was never proper signage on the building, until now. Resa’s poster is just what was needed. A huge round of chirps and wing flaps to Resa.
Love and tenderness are beautiful in all their forms. Kindness and sweetness is not only recognized, it’s felt deep inside of us. We are moved by it, made better by seeing it. Love, when it’s real, is a many splendored thing.
The guests have arrived and the Chicklet Valentine’s Day Party has officially begun. Clarence was in charge of setting up Holly’s Corn bread treats for an after breakfast snack. Unfortunately, Clarence decided to taste test the corn bread and couldn’t seem to control himself.
When interviewed for The Coop newspaper, he simply chirped, “It was just so delicious, what else could I have done?” Everyone understood his dilemma and a meeting was held where a rule was passed, saying that no one could be in charge of food products alone. At least two beings would have to be present for the set-up.
Everyone felt much better after that. The good news is that Holly made enough corn bread for everyone, so no one will go without a slice, or two.
Everything is coming along nicely. Final touches are being done by the Stage Crew, and guest are starting to arrive. There’s a flurry of busyness in the kitchens, as the hens and chicklets prepare food for the party. The level of excitement is high.
Mimi is head of the menu committee for the Valentine’s Day Party. She had the same job last year, so she knows exactly what to do. Since last year’s menu selection was fabulous, everyone is wondering what she will select this time around.
