IN THE GARDEN OF GOOD, BETTER and BEST

THE HEARTFELTS





Where every day feels like Saturday
and
 Every night is Friday night.




A Day In The Life


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~






IN THE GARDEN 
of
GOOD
BETTER
and BEST




While Daddy B.B. and Hootie The Sports Guy are at the Baseball game,
Red Polka Dot Girl is busy spending some time freshening up the flower garden.
Everything has to be perfect because tomorrow is the big Garden Tour to benefit
The Heartdale Falls Children's Hospital Fund, plus the entire family is coming  over
for Saturday night supper. She's enlisted Pink Polka Dot Girls help and
Yello Hoodie Boy has to dig ( remember his punishment for stowing away to Italy...
eternal chores). That aside, Yello Hoodie Boy is definitely not happy.



But, what's this? Worms.....and lots of them.
These would cost him a whole weeks allowance at the Bait and Tackle Shop.
Hey, this gardening stuff isn't so bad after all ....Tomorrow, FISHIN'.







THE DISASTER IN THE DINING ROOM
or
I'D RATHER BE FISHIN'



Golly, these worms are kinda cute. Yello Hoodie Boy wants to count them,
you know, to sharpen his arithmetic skills. Problem is, he's doing it at
the dining room table with Grammy Beebe's embroidered tablecloth on it....
and she's coming for supper tonight.
It's a mess. Looks like Yello Hoodie Boy has done it again. He doesn't
try to get in trouble, but somehow trouble finds him.



Well, the good news is that the tablecloth can be cleaned, and for that matter ,
so can Yello Hoodie Boy....he's a mess.
Now he has to wash the tablecloth and himself as well.
Hey there L'il  Miss Candy Drop, you'd better wait until your Mommy
can draw you a fresh bath....You don't want worm water.



Next week....
Guess Who's Coming For Supper?

CALLING ALL SPORTS FANS...( Part 2)

THE HEARTFELTS



Heartdale Falls



Where everyday feels like Saturday
and
Every night is Friday night.




A DAY IN THE LIFE




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



CALLING ALL SPORTS FANS
Part 2






In the last episode we left Grey Hoodie Boy at bat facing the super mean
Tug 'The Hammer' O'Goon, Pitcher for the River City Otters. The bases are loaded and Heartdale Falls is behind 
by three runs. The count is three balls and two strikes....YIKES 






Tug keeps shaking off pitches from the Catcher. He wants to throw 'heat', maybe a split finger
fast ball, his signature Strike Out Pitch.








Instead, he throws to first base in a pick off attempt. Fortunately 'Spuds'
Yatroski is as fast as a cat and beats the throw.
That's right Spud, call for a Time Out, you can't trust these weasels, 
OH... excuse me those 'Otters'.

Wait a minute....Tug knows he can't throw out Spuds, he's the fastest base
runner in the League. He must be trying to break Grey Hoodie Boy's
concentration. He's trying to mess with his head, The Rat.





....And it ain't working'. 
Grey Hoodie Boy is totally focused.
The tension is at a fever pitch.





 
Tug fires his fast ball......I can't watch....
Is this going to be Mudville all over again?








Grey Hoodie Boy absolutely crushes it.

A GRAND SLAM HOME RUN.
GAME OVER
HEARTDALE  FALLS WINS THE GAME

Heartdale  Falls




Where everyday feels like Saturday
and
every night is Friday night !




A DAY IN THE LIFE


________________________________________________________




CALLING ALL SPORTS FANS


The folks of Heartdale Falls take sports seriously.
Football ushers in Fall and of course there is soccer. Winter brings basketball and hockey,
but everybody waits for Spring to hear the Umpire yell, "PLAY BALL "
Its baseball season, a special place in the heart.




Daddy B.B. has caught up with Hootie The Sports Guy. They are entering the
Stadium to find their seats. The rain has cleared and the field looks great!
Nothing is greener than a freshly mowed ball field.





WOW, what great seats. Not to mention the hot dogs, soda and for Daddy B.B. a
frosty cold one. Hey, there's old Roger Angelheart. He still keeps a scorecard
and hasn't missed a game in 40 years.

It's a close game......





It's the ninth inning with the River City Otters leading by three runs.
Those rats. Two outs... Grey Hoodie Boy is at the plate with the bases loaded
and the Otters have called in their best closer, Tug 'The Hammer' O'Goon.
They call him 'The Hammer' because he always nails the game shut.
He's big, mean and yuck....he spits.  I bet he cheats.




Grey Hoodie Boy isn't scared. The count is 3 Balls and 2 Strikes.
I think the Catcher is calling for an inside fast ball.....PURE HEAT.
Fortunately, the Umpire is 'Bear' McClean, the best Ump in baseball.

It's a real nail biter........

RAIN DELAY!


THE HEARTFELTS

A DAY IN THE LIFE



RAIN DELAY!




Last week Daddy B.B. had to rush from Farmer Dave's Vegetable Stand to
meet up with Hootie The Sport's Guy for the big
game at the baseball field. On the way, dark clouds started to gather and
then it started to rain. The field was covered with a tarp and a 'rain delay'
was called. They have to wait until the rain stops before the
game can begin.


Coming up.....
Calling all sports fans!

A DAY IN THE LIFE
Episode 5

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


THE HEARTFELTS


HIGH NOON




Burger Heaven

It's getting close to noon so Daddy B.B. decides to treat everyone and go to the
Drive-In for lunch. Burger Heaven is one of those retro - 50's era joints, but they
make the best burgers around. Even Hello Hoodie Girl (who, of course, is vegetarian)
loves the veggie burger...and then there's those fries!




After lunch its time for a ride in the country. Daddy B.B. knows all the roads around Heartdale Falls
and he finds a back country road that will lead to a favorite spot. Its time to sing all the 
Country Road songs they know......
Maybe it's best not to listen too closely! 





Farmer Dave runs the best fresh produce stand around. There he is giving the kids a ride
with his tractor. He could sell the land to Developers and make a lot of money, but he
says that farming is in his blood. Red Polka Dot Girl is buying fresh corn. There's company coming for dinner tonight.
Daddy B.B. has to rush off to the Baseball game, Hootie The Sports Guy is there watching
Grey Hoodie Boy at batting practice.




Red Polka Dot Girl just needs to pick up a 'few things' at the market. In the frozen
food aisle she runs into Julie and Little Jo-Jo. Lil' Miss Candy Drop and 
Jo-Jo go to the same  pre-school and are great friends!
I hope she has picked up enough stuff for dinner!


Now about that ball game........

To be continued.

Hello Hoodie Girl is taking it upon herself to try to improve Yello Hoodie Boy.
Everyone knows that his grades in school aren't what they could be. (That's being kind) .
They are standing in front of the Heartdale Falls Public Library. She hopes
something will spark his interest and that he will become more involved in reading.
He is her little brother after all! 
Yello Hoodie Boy is not happy! It feels a lot like school and it is Saturday!
He would rather be fishing!
But look, there's a free exhibit in the Science Department....Gerbils!





Checkout  Counter


Yello Hoodie Boy thinks he can borrow the gerbil.
OH Boy! He has set off the alarm and the Director, Mr. Leggere, is really upset!
He's calling Security, will Yello Hoodie Boy be arrested for shoplifting a gerbil?
Hello hoodie Girl is thinking, " No good deed goes unpunished!"






All's well. Hello Hoodie Girl explains that this is Yello Hoodie Boy's first visit to the
Library and he thought he could borrow the gerbil and take it home. Mr. Leggere is showing
him a book, 'The Secret Life of Gerbils', by the famous author Sy. This is neat! Now he will know more about gerbils than anyone in his class at school.
Libraries aren't so bad after all!

IT'S A GET UP N' GO MORNING!







Heartdale Falls





Where every day feels like Saturday,
and every night is Friday night!




A DAY IN THE LIFE
(Episode 2)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



IT'S A GET UP N' GO MORNING
9:00 a.m.


Well, Red Polka Dot Girl is finally finished feeding the neighborhood her famous Swedish pancakes,
so now it is time for her morning pick-me-up, and extra large triple everything coffee for
her and Pink Polka Dot Girl and a box of doughnut holes for Lil' Miss Candydrop's treat  for
later on. They are on their way to the High School gym. I wonder what's up?




Oh! That's why Daddy B.B. skipped the Swedish pancakes! He and Yello Hoodie Boy
are at the diner. Bubba is bringing Daddy B.B. his order of '2-2-2-2.'
Two eggs any style
Two bacon strips
Two sausage links
Two Texas toasts

And Yello Hoodie Boy is chowing down on a delicious piece of Apple Pie... a la Mode of course.
Bubba's one of the few people in Heartdale Falls to wear a tattoo.  It's a by product of his 
years serving in the Navy.




We are at the gym for the Regional Cheerleading Competition.
Pink Polka Dot Girl is Captain and is on top of the
'Triple Dog Dare Pyramid'! Mom can't bear to watch!
I think they nailed it!!
You go girls!!!




Meanwhile, the boys are giving the old Chevy a good washing in the driveway. It's a
beautiful morning on Pleasant Street and Yello Hoodie Boy has been very helpful.
He hasn't been in trouble once today! Hmmmmm!



Coming Next Week....
