Listen now and I shall tell ya
how to run away from crocodiles and alligatas.
If you live where there are flurries
you have no reason to worry.
But if you live where it is hot
and you spy a dreaded croc
who chases you and his lips he licks,
you take a big long stick
find it's nose or eye to hit.
Now to run away in time
away from the alligatas and crocidi.
But do not run in a straight line,
if it is a great huge alliagati.
Yet do run straight with lots of speed
if you meet a crocode.
I warn you now to be safe,
around the crocodiles and alligatas.
Or you could hide
in a tree so tall and high
if you do not want to die,
around the dangerous crocodie.
Do not swim in water deep,
with bare feet,
away from crocodiles and alligatas.
So now you know about these beasts,
with sharp, sharp, teeth.
Now please be aware of how to run away from
crocodiles and alligatas!

For school I had to write a few limericks.
A lady once loved a great knight
And he had a dragon to fight
First the dragon did wheeze
Then he let off with a sneeze
Anyone want a crunchy knight?
There was a dragon and a knight
Add a princess and a big fight
A shield and a fire
Now things are most dire
Figure it out before tonight.
I once had this question most dire
Add a dragon and a sire
So I took a long walk
And I thought, and I thought
Was the knight tested by fire?
Then for a challenge I had to write a limerick that was not funny.
I fear this limerick is sad
Of nothing I have to be glad
I cry and I weep
Untill I fall asleep
Because I have been bad
In the north hemisphere it is a constellation.
Then there is the devil also known as Satan.
A serpent that flies above the ground.
A person that’s fierce, where fire abounds
A plant known as the African Arum.
And also a species of palm.
A genus of insects, scientifically known as Libellula.
Now what is the title of this poem, give a explanation.
For school I am taking a writing class called Cover Story. My assignment was to write an acrostic or two. Acrostic poems are poems in which a letter from each line is arranged to make a word or phrase. After reading these, can you tell what book I am reading?
Diving through the ranks the fearful foe flew
Ringing swords clash at its armor
"Avenge the fallen" the army cries
Gold and silver scales shimmer in the torch light
Over the ranks the foe flies breathing fire
Nothing is spared
Silver and golds he hides
Money he hordes
Outside his mountain he pillages
Great and small
In August we went to Badlands National Park. On the first day there we went to the visitor center and got our Junior Ranger books to complete to get a badge. We also asked if there was any bison* around. We were told they were not in the park but were slowly heading back there. We did see some bison later that week though.
The next day we hiked Saddle Pass Trail, Medicine Root Trail, and part of Castle Trail. We saw a bighorn sheep and some bugs. Then we took a break for the afternoon, but that evening we went on the Window Trail and the Door Trail.**
Later that week we went on the Notch Trail. It had a short walk through the prairie then a rope ladder. After that it was a narrow walk on a rock ledge and then ended over a look out. It was really pretty.**
*Bison are NOT buffalo. Buffalo are bovines in the genus Bubalina that live in Africa and southeast Asia. Bison are bovines in the genus Bison that live in Europe and North America.

On Friday we went and explored Wellfield Gardens.*
We saw two geese get out of the water, walk in front of us and go back in the water.
Then I got pictures of a neat water fountain.

A few days ago Momma, Megan, and I went to the park and took pictures.

Paul and Thor continued writing Cats Game, I still illustrated,
(Paul) Meanwhile I was searching around the warehouse, soon I came upon three spiders. “It’s your turn Gutter”, one spider hissed. Another spider landed on the ground and scurried away.
“Well, Fly” said the first spider. “It’s just you and me”.
“What are the dogs doing now, Stringy?” asked the one called Fly.
“Nothing much if you count whining, but I did get a autographed book of Diary of a Wimpy Dog“. After a few more minutes of talking I decided to make my move. I scooped up Fly, “Where are the dogs?” I asked.
“Uhhh, three P-p-passages on the left and then s-s-straight”. With that I bolted off.
(Thor) At that moment I woke up. I looked around, I was tied up by the tail to a stone wall. I could only go about three feet. Two dogs were tied up next to me. I remembered the white dog was Lady Flopsy and the black and white one as Lea Dea. I pawed at my collar, I hit the button that released the solution that would dissolve the spider webs. My restrains began to dissolve, and soon I was released. I did that to Lady Flopsy and Lea Dea also. They were free! Suddenly we heard a noise and we turned around, there in front of us was a giant spider!
(Paul) I twisted throgh the boxes after following the spiders directions, I saw a cave. I crept forward. Then I saw a giant spider in front of Thor and two other dogs. I knew it was GIGANTO. I thought for a moment before figuring out what to do. I jumped on GIGANTO and hit his head. GIGANTO began to shrink and I put him in a special box. Thor slobbed me till I told him to stop. Then we went out, jumped in Thor’s car and Lea Dea drove back to S.A.D headquarters.
(Thor) Agent 12½ and Agent 8¼ congratulated us and put GIGANTO in a cell in the shed with Dr. Boul. Ing. Bal. Then they told us that Lea Dea could shine light and breath glitter, they called her GLOWGIRL. Then Paul came up to me. “I have a mission in Catvill but I will be back in December unless something goes wrong”. Then we both got copy’s of Diary of a Wimpy Dog from Flopsy. I told Paul “Thank you” and,
Thor and Paul wrote this story together, I illustrated.
(Thor) I was playing with my chew toy when Agent 8¼ called me. “Thor, Lady Flopsy and Lea Dea have been captured!”. When I got inside Agent 8¼ continued, “They have been captured by Baron Von Web”. I whined questioningly. “I don’t know why they have been captured”, Agent 8¼ replied. “But we think that you will need a partner, so we chose Paul”.
I sat down to try to remember who every one was. Lady Flopsy was writer of Diary of a Wimpy Dog, she is famous. Lea Dea was a new recruit for S.A.D. (Superhero, Animal, Department), I do not know why they want her. Baron Von Web was a dropout of S.A.D, he was called GIGANTIO and could turn huge and his fangs dripped a sleeping potion. Paul was a cat and a member of S.A.D, Paul could turn invisible and climb anything, his code name was HUNTER.
(Paul) I entered the room and purred, “Hi, Thor”, Thor was about to respond but I continued,”Lets go now and we can talk in the car, we’ll take your car but I’ll drive”. Thor pressed the button on his collar and the wall slid open to reveal his car. “Oh, Thor, Paul, I put a potion in your collars that will dissolve the most stickiest webs”, called Agent 12½. Then I pressed the go button and we sped through the tunnel.
(Thor) Soon we shot out and were on the highway, Paul almost crashed into ten cars, five houses, three posts, and one plane. I guess he needs more driving lessons then I do. When we got to Baron Von Webs hideout we stopped. I expected a cave or tunnel but it was a large warehouse. We jumped of my car and walked in, it was full of boxes and crates. Paul gave instructions, “You watch for anything and I will try to find Lady Flopsy and Lea Dea”. Then Paul vanished, I watched a mouse run across the floor and through a hole in a pile of boxes, then after a second the pile fell across the floor. I sighed. Cats always chase mice and other rodents.
After about an hour I felt something drip on my head. I looked up, nothing. Another drop hit my eye, I guessed it was raining or there was a puddle of water on the roof. Soon I began to get sleepy and I lay down and fell fast asleep.
