Summer Vacation Is Here

The school year had finished for Eddy and Billy. They both had passed 5th grade and were happy.

Today was their first day off from school, and they decided to ride their bikes to the park and play catch. 

They had their baseball caps on and placed their gloves on the handlebars of their bicycles. They were ready to shove off, when Eddy said, "Wait, I need to tell my Mom that we are going to the park."

"Me too."

They both left their bicycles and ran inside their house to let their Moms know.

Back outside, they were getting on their bikes when Eddy said, "Wait, I need to check my bike to see if anything is broken."


"I don't know, that's what Dad told me."

Billy said, "OK. I'll check mine too."

With everything in order, they got on their bikes and rode to the park. As they raced down the street, Billy shouted, "HI - YO SILVER."

Arriving, they parked their bikes underneath the Olde Oak tree. They got their baseball gloves and ran to play catch.

After spending some time throwing the ball, they decided to rest on the park bench under the tree.

Billy asked Eddy, "Did you see Davy Crocket last night?"

"No, I watched Davy Crocket last night."

Eddy asked, "What's the difference?"

"Davy did not come to my house for me to see, I watched him on TV."

Eddy replied, "I want to go to Disneyland and see Davy Crocket."

"We can't go."

"Why?" asked Eddy.

"Because Dad said there is a recession coming."

"What's a recession?" Asked Eddy.

"I don't know. I just know that he said it. Now we can't go until it arrives."

"When will it arrive?"  Asked Eddy.

"Your guess is as good as mine."
