Perry Parrot perched on his purple peg on the pink porch planned the perfect picnic and pool party for Penny Pig and the rest of his friends.

He planned a menu of purple-hulled peas, pistachios, pickles, pinto beans, potato chips, pecan pudding, pears, plums, peanuts, pine nuts, pomegranate, pineapples, pancakes, paella, parsnip, peaches, pepperoni pizza, popcorn, poblanos, bell peppers, popsicles,plantains, pumpkins, pilaf and punch.

Pip Pheasant, Peta Puffin, Pyo Prayingmantis and Payton Porpoise.

Perry prepared the pool by starting the pumps and pruning the plants, cleaning the pit, patio furniture and placed some pads in the pen. He paved the path to the pond and painted the pergola and dance platform. Perry planted petunias, peonies, and portulaca and palms near the pool and the pond. He hung peach paper lanterns and made the yard look like a peaceful park.

The day of the party was final here. Penny Pig was very pleased to see all of their friends in their swimming finery! Everyone brought presents for Penny Pig to play with. Patricia Poodle, Paige Pomeranian, Phoebe Persian and Pandora Pug passed through the pergola in their pink bikinis, polka-dot maillots, and purple pumps and posed on their pink and purple pillows around the pool. They didn’t want to get their perfect pom-pom hairstyles wet! Peggy and Ping Panda sat under the giant peach parasol while taking pictures of everyone at the party. Piper, Polo, Pace, Pia and Portia Pike were swimming in the pond. Pamela and Phuong Penguin were diving and sliding in the pool along with Peta Puffin and Payton Porpoise. Parker Pointer paddled in the deep end of the pool. Philip Panther and Patrick Puma rode pedal boats in the pond.

Pin Pony, Philip Panther, Powah Polarbear and Penny Pig danced the Penguin, the Popcorn, the Mashed Potato, the Pony and the Pachanga all day and into the night on the platform while Pete Porcupine played pop hits on the piano and Perry Parrot played the piccolo. Pyo Prayingmatis checked in presents, phones, painful pumps, purses, and pocketbooks. Pip Pheasant grilled bell peppers and poblanos on the pit while Pier Pelican painted portraits of Paul Peacock, Philip Panther, Patrick Puma and the guests.

Powah Polarbear, Peta Puffin, Pamela and Phuong Penguin cooled down with peach and pineapple popsicles.

Everyone danced and swam by the light of Polaris in the sky and ended the party pooped with peppermints and parfaits and packed the food away. Penny read a pleasant poem and thanked her guests for the pretty presents brought to the party as she politely walked her guests to the pergola.  Good night!

The N Story

Nikki, Norry, Nina, Nancy, Noah, Nero, Nadia, Norbert, Nadim, and Nero, all noticed one night that a number of neighborhood nests looked neglected and showed natural normal wear and needed repair. With Nancy taking notes, the nine friends decided to start a new nest repair business. They decided to name themselves:

”The Nimble Nine Neighborhood Nest Repair Company”
All repairs from a nickel to nineteen-ninety-nine.
No knockoffs used in our repairs!
We never refuse repairs.

Nancy and Noah stayed at the office to manage the notes, notices and calls. Nikki, Nora, Nina, Nero, Nadia, Nadim and Norbert used their nimble skills to repair the nests.

The first repair will be on the the nest next door,the nine agreed. The one in the Northern Pin Oak tree. It was a nuthatch nest with nasty little holes that nine nesting nuthatch gnawed through the floor of the nest. Norry and Nadia used their trusty knife and nimble fingers to nip and sew netting to make a new, nice and neat floor for the nest at a cost of ninety cents!

The next nest to be repaired was the nightingale nest near the end of the block. It was narrow and the nightingales were barely fitting in the nest. The Nimble Nine decided to wait until noon to knock at the nightingale nest since they are nocturnal and would be napping during the day. They returned at noon and negotiated with the nightingale’s’ work to add a nursery with nipples, with as little noise as possible, using the brightest nips and bits of newspaper, nails and nuts. The nightingales only paid nine-ninety nine!

The news about The Nimble Nine Neighborhood Nest Repair Company, traveled so fast that now neighbors nationwide were calling for their services. They received calls from New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Nebraska, North Dakota, New Mexico, and Nevada.
They were receiving requests to paint nests navy blue for the retired nautical noddy. They were asked to nail the knotholes in used woodpecker nests and repair the crow’s nest on the ship where Nosey the New Britain Dwarf Kingfisher lives.

The Nimble Nine soon became internationally known for their newly finished and repaired nests. They had requests from Nepal, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua and Nigeria too! They were asked to build birdhouses with special rooms for birds with long numb necks and cramped knees, small houses for single birds, wide nests for growing families, and narrow nests for empty nest parents. A nurse also called to ask to have a nest hospital for birds that had accidents while flying.

One night, they received a call to repair a nest that was flooded with water up to the knees of the Noe Flamingo that lived there. Nina carefully folded neon green waterproof napkins to stop the flood and dry the nest. Nathan Nutcracker called for help because the tree that held his nest was knocked down.

Noelle Nunbird sat nervously reading a novel while Nero nimbly repaired the knotholes in her nest. Sir Nathan called to have a room added to his nest for his knighted suit of armor. The work cost him a nickel.

Nova Night-heron and her nephew Nolan and niece Nell, called for a nest repair in their kitchen while they were kneading dough to make knish and gnocchi. They gave a gift of lunch and necklaces to the nimble nine. The Nimble Nine dined on knish, knockwurst, gnocchi, noodles, nectarine juice, neeps,and neapolitan for dessert while neatly picnicking on their Navajo white knitted blanket on a grassy knoll. Noah nodded and sat under a Northern Oak tree for a ninety minute nap. Nikki cleaned after the picnic to not have the area visited by gnats. She packed the blanket in its knapsack and returned to the office to fill her nostrils with the sweet scents of narcissus, and nepeta in her green and navy gnome vase. When The Nimble Nine returned to the office at nine, they turned in the amount of $39.99.
What a neat start for The Nimble Nine Neighborhood Nest Repair Company!

The Q Story

This is the story of Queen Quintessa of New Queensland and her five quiet quotes

written with her large white quill, that made the quintuplet finals.  Queen Quintessa

kissed her beautiful quetzal who sang a quick song. She requested her quilt and quartz

crown to be carefully placed on her fiery red quiff and was quite upset when her

subjects were a quarter past the hour late to assist her.  Queen Quintessa reached for her

quill to shoot her quick arrows to punish them. Her subjects quaked, quaved, quivered

and quietly tiptoed out of her quarters. She questioned and quizzed the new quarterback

of her quarry football team on his qualifications until he quit and they traded quips and

called each other quacks. She banished him to the deserts of Qatar, with nothing to

quench his thirst, charged him a quantum of ten thousand pieces of gold, and left her

team in a quandary.

Queen Quintessa called for lunch of quincy, quahog and quiche with four quarts of royal

punch served in golden queghs, to be shared with her pets Quinton Quoll and Quickly

Quokka. After lunch she requested her purple quoif to be placed on her head for her daily four

quarters of the hour nap. Quinton Quoll bid Queen Quintessa good day and thanked her

for the lunch,  as he hurried off to his quiet hole to continue his daily nap since he is

most active at night.

Queen Quintessa gave her final order for the day for the servants to plant quamash in

the royal gardens near the quoins so Quickly Quokka would have somewhere to stay and


Now if you think this story is one large quiz and you need a dictionary, that is right on

que, wait until you read the x story. It is going to be a doozy too!


The L Story

Last lunar month, Leki Lemur and Lacy Ladybug finished their last long lab lesson and

decided to plan a large lawn lunch at the sandy lagoon to celebrate learning their last laws

of science.

“Let’s send invitations by lighted letters to our classmates and friends. The lunch menu

will have lettuce, leaves, leeks, lobster, lasagna, liver, ling, lotus root, links, lemonade and

lime and lemon drop ice cream topped with licorice lollipops.”, said Lacy Ladybug.

“We’ll have Lyn Lamb the master chef cater the whole lunch.”, said Leki Lemur.

“I’ll ask the Leaping Loud Laughing Lamp Leg Llama Rock Band to provide some music for

the lunch.”, said Lacy. “This will be easy to plan and it will not take long!”

The last day of the lunar month came lickety split!

Everyone left the lab and headed to the sandy lagoon for the last laws of science


The Leaping Loud Laughing Lamp Leg Llama Rock Band played and sang at the top of their

lungs and Larry Lizard leaped and danced shaking all four legs. Leki Lemur liked the lunch

so much, that he ran a lap and lost his lime green lid somewhere on the lawn. Lacy

Ladybug led the lightening bugs to the lip of the lawn lamp with the Left Lyra Land dance.

Happy the laughing hyena was the last to leave the lunch after she climbed the long link

ladder that led to the bottom of the tall live oak tree and looked into the dark log that led

to the home of Lisa the leery lemming. Last but not least, everyone helped lock the leaky

laboratory for the long summer.

I bet you can’t wait to have a school year end like that!
