The Jensen’s Journey

#75: Tides Can Teach (2) - EEEEEEK!" Julie screamed, shaking her left foot.
Mrs. Jensen jumped back, startled. "What's the matter?"
"Some ugly creature was crawling on my foot," she squealed with a shiver.

#74: Tides Can Teach - "And we'll be arriving at just the right time," Mrs. Jensen remarked. "The high tide in this part of the Bay of Fundy is about a hour away. There will still be some beach, and if we stay until supper time, we'll be able to see both the high and low tides."

#73: THE ‘O’ ZONE - As the two dug tunnels and built walls, neither noticed a strange man approaching from behind.

#72- Busy Beavers - "You know we can't go on a holiday trip this year. But I'll tell you what, let's go bike riding this afternoon. Joshua can ride in the kiddie seat in back."

#71- How Many Queens? - I got first and you're not taking it."
"Well, I guess I'll just have to remove you then."
"You and what army?" By now the boys were only inches apart.

"I know I put in the yeast. There must be something wrong with it. O, brother. What are we going to do now? Everything has to be done tomorrow morning."

#68- Our Daily Bread (1) - Just then Jason stomped through the door. "What a lousy day! Nothing ever goes right when Dad's gone," he pouted as he slammed the door and plopped onto a chair.

#67- How Attractive! - "According to what I heard, if you pound a nail into the ground facing the north, the nail will turn into a magnet."
"Really? That sure doesn't sound right. Are you sure?"
"Yup. Now which way is north around here?"

#69- Our Daily Bread (2) - "So does that mean that our bread has alcohol, you know, booze, in it?"
"I don't know. I-I guess so," Julie concluded. "But it's probably only a small amount."

#66-Lessons from a Lump - "Your turn, Dad . . . uh, Dad, what are you looking at?"
"Oh, uh . . . I see some coal, right here in this hole. How's that?" He held up a large black chunk.
