(Butch and Spike enter, then Buddy)

 

BUTCH– HEY SPIKE DO YOU REALIZE THAT WINTER IS ON ITS WAY OUT?  IT IS FEBRUARY ALREADY. I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL SPRING.

SPIKE— ME TOO SOME PEOPLE JUST LOVE WINTER

BUT I AM NOT ONE OF THEM.  I LIKE A LITTLE SNOW FOR CHRISTMAS BUT THEN IT CAN GO AWAY.

BUDDY– HI BOYS WHAT’S GOING ON?  YOU LOOK LIKE YOU ARE HAVING A SERIOUS TALK.

BUTCH– WELL BUDDY BARREL, WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT SPRING.

BUDDY- ALREADY? THAT’S A FEW MONTHS AWAY.  YOU ARE KIND OF RUSHING THINGS.

SPIKE– YEAH, BUT I STILL LIKE TO THINK ABOUT THE WARM WEATHER THAT IS COMING.

BUDDY-- YES IT IS NICE TO LOOK FORWARD TO NICE THINGS THAT WILL HAPPEN.  IT IS KIND OF LIKE HOW SOME OF THE MISSIONARIES FEEL ABOUT GETTING SUPPLIES TO HELP THEM TELL BOYS AND GIRLS ABOUT JESUS.  THEY REALLY LOOK FORWARD TO THE PACKAGES THAT ARE SENT TO THEM

BUTCH– I GUESS I NEVER THOUGH ABOUT IT LIKE THAT BEFORE.

SPIKE– WELL I GUESS THAT WOULD BE REALLY IMPORTANT

TO THEM.  THEY GIVE UP THEIR LIVES OF COMFORT HERE TO LIVE IN A FOREIGN LAND SO THEY CAN TELL OTHERS ABOUT JESUS.

BUDDY— YES, YOU SEE GOD HAS CALLED THEM TO WORK FOR HIM AND THEY DID AS HE WANTED THEM TOO.

THAT IS WHY IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU BOYS AND GIRLS TO MAKE SURE YOU BRING IN YOUR BUDDY BARRELS NEXT WEEK.  THAT MONEY GOES TO HELP BUY SUPPLIES TO SEND TO THEM.

BUTCH– WELL BUDDY I GUESS THAT IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO. LOOK FORWARD TO GETTING OUR BUDDY BARRELS HERE. LOOKING FORWARD TO SOMETHING THAT IS STILL MONTHS AWAY ISN’T AS IMPORTANT.

BUDDY– PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING IN YOUR BUDDY BARRELS NEXT WEEK BOYS AND GIRLS IT REALLY HELPS THE MISSIONARIES GET THE STORY OF JESUS OUT TO OTHER BOYS AND GIRLS.  WELL I HAVE TO GO NOW AND SEE SOME OTHER BOYS AND GIRLS.  SEE YOU ALL NEXT MONTH   BYE.

BYE BUTCH AND SPIKE KEEP WARM.

BUTCH & SPIKE– SEE YOU BUDDY BARREL. BOYS AND GIRLS, JUST REMEMBER YOUR BUDDY BARRELS NEXT WEEK BYE.

 

THE END
