Murdo Girl…Thanksgivington..part 2

We left Thanksgivington  before you had been introduced to all  the townspeople. They are very anxious to meet you! I’m the Beasterhop and I will be the narrator of this tell tail tale… of sorts.

Thanksgivington Train Station

The townspeople have decided they will be celebrating Christmas for the very first time. They haven’t had so much as a peppermint candy cane in the past. You see, there are no children in Thanksgivington. How could they celebrate Christmas without children?

The people of Thanksgivington are tired of missing out on the joys of Christmas, so they decided to plan their own perfect Christmas.

This year, they are going to have a Christmas Extravaganza with all the trimmings. It will culminate with a huge parade. The theme for the extravaganza will be, A Perfect Christmas. The business or organization with the best representation of  A Perfect Christmas will receive the first annual Christmas Extravaganza trophy

There is one other thing. Each business and/or organization must pair up with another business and/or organization and work together on their entry. 

Let’s head back over to Sweet Sally’s Bakery and have some hot chocolate and a danish. Looks like Sally is  visiting with  Watson the mailman. Watson is rather hard of hearing, so this could be interesting.

Sweet Sally’s Bakery

Sally: Good morning Wat…Do I have mail today?

Wat: What, what? Oh, you mean Wat. Sorry Sally, I’m still delivering mail. Can I have a rain-check? Oh no, can’t do that either. I have to deliver the mail even if it rains, or snows and a bunch of other weather related stuff. Here’s your mail, Sally. You got a nice card there from your sister, yup…I always did like your sister.

Sally was going to ask him if he would be her partner for the parade, but she knew it wouldn’t do any good to yell after him…he wouldn’t hear her anyway. Oh well, it’s only November 1st. There is a lot of time between now and December 25th.

I highly recommend Sally’s danish. It’s the best I’ve ever eaten. Let’s go on over and see Tom and Sylvia at the bookstore.

 Sylvia is walking to the door of Tom’s Books

That Tom really is Jumpy. If he doesn’t want to be startled all the time, he should take those bells down. Here comes Sylvia.

Sylvia: I hate making you jump every time I open that door, Tom. Why don’t you take those bells down?

Tom: That’s not why I’m so jumpy today, Sylvia. I’m nervous about our entry for the Christmas extravaganza parade. I can’t think of anyone who would want to be my partner. I get so jumpy when I’m nervous.

Sylvia: Now you’re talking foolishness, Tom. I for one, will help, but you’re right. We have to find another business or organization to partner with.

Here comes Happy the Happy Flower Shop owner. Tom is looking right at Happy and he still jumps. I fear he will fall off his stool.

Happy: You really should take those bells down Tom. It can’t be good for you to jump every time someone comes through the door.

Tom: I know Happy, but I like to hear the bells. It might be someone coming in to buy a book. I don’t sell many books anymore. It seems I spend all day reading them myself. I guess when I’m done with all of the books, I’ll start reading the dictionary.

Happy: Sorry, Tom, I don’t need a book today, but What do you think about partnering with me for the Christmas Parade?

Tom: I don’t know Happy. Do you have any ideas?

Happy: You surprise me, Tom… I figured a jumpy guy like you would jump right on the bandwagon…Hey, Let’s put a bandwagon in the parade. That’s a great idea! We’ll fill in the blanks later…see ya Tom!

 

Meanwhile, Betsy is talking to all her customers at Betsy’s Beauty Shop.

Betsy: Hey girls…How about we all get together and enter that Christmas extravaganza parade? I have an idea that is sure to be a winner. We’ll take the trophy for sure. Why, in a few years, we’ll have the walls in my beauty shop lined with trophies.wp-image-1870371443jpg.jpg

They don’t know they’re about to have a little visit from Sally’s sister….

Don’t read this part to the kiddies…I’m just making sure you’re paying attention.

Word of the day: bandwagon
