Tales from the Cribt (5)

((Today is a very big day for little Jules Simanski, one he is likely to remember for a very long time. Join him once again in the role of his imaginary friend… days like today are what imaginary friends are for.))
Hey! Hi, Friendly! Guess what today is? That's right--my birthday! I'm going to be a big-boy! That's not the same as a big-kid, but BIG, just the same. Lookit here, we’re going to have a cake, and balloons, and a giant picture of balloons! I should tell you, though… Mama won’t be able to be at the party. She’s still in faraway France with her mama and dada. But don’t worry, Friendly. She’s going to call me on the phone as soon as I blow out the candles. Big boys get to use the phones, did you know? Maybe I’ll even get one of my very own for a birthday present! Hm? Who's shoes are these? Oh, right. Windy’s shoes. That’s what everyone calls her. Windy. She’s my babysitter. Don’t worry, she doesn’t -really- sit on any babies that I know of. Windy is the big-kid of Whistler. He’s one of Unca Jesse’s repo-man friends. Sometimes Unca Jesse calls him Terry, and sometimes he calls him Boss, but mostly everyone calls him Whistler. Windy’s okay, I guess. But she keeps putting Pony in my toy box and it takes me forever to dig him out again. Maybe you’re wondering why Windy is here? Well... The sink monster got out this morning, and teamed up with Badly the evil clown. Water and badness went everywhere. But only Dada could see it. That was the Badly part. So Unca Jesse called Whistler and Windy to come over. Then Whistler helped Unca Jesse take Dada to the doctor. I guess Dada needs to get his eyes checked. They’ll be back later, though. And then we’ll make party noise and blow out candles. And eat cake. Windy, don’t clean up Pony! I want to keep him in my pocket! Wait... Lookit here! Windy is going to help me finish learning to talk real words! Maybe Windy is sorta cool after all. “No… Pony… In… Box!” Windy: "Oh!" Windy: “No problem, Jules.” Maybe Windy is VERY cool, after all. And she plays toys…? … Awesome. Uh-oh. It’s getting to be almost night-night time. Lookit, here’s Unca Jesse and Whistler! But... "Where is Dada?" Jesse: “Jules…” Jesse: “There’s something I have to tell you about your dad…” Jesse: “You know how he doesn’t feel good and his head hurts him a lot? Well…” Jesse: “He has to stay in a place where the doctors can take care of him…" Jesse: “Just for now, just until he feels better…" Jesse: “So it’s going to be you and me for a little while…” Jesse: “But it’s all going to be okay…” Jesse: “Because we all love you very, very much…” Jesse: “… Happy birthday, Jules.” ((Special thanks to…

> To all who have read the Cribts, I cannot thank you enough for your positive ratings and encouraging feedback throughout this series; without you, I’m not sure I would've finished these, and even if I did, I doubt I would’ve tried to continue after… thank you for helping me find the courage to do that, from the bottom of my heart to the tip of my tail to the ends of my shwinging whiskers ;)
Don’t worry, Friendly. That’s not the end. That’s just the end of the beginning. Jonothan Julius Simanski (I)… “Jono” Jesse Jonas Simanski… “Jesse” Danielle Marquis… “Dani” Jonothan Julius Simanski, Junior… “Jules”

Why did I not read these earlier!?! This is amazing! It takes talent to take a good picture, and it takes talent to write a touching story, but it takes A LOT of talent to put those two together -- just like you have done! (And from this chapter, I especially like shot 12. "Jules. Not. Happy.") I don't think a \:rah\: is enough, or even several of those. I wish there was an "I'm amazed and then some"-smilie.

I came to read your story because of your other part. Congratulations, on both of them! I think they're really well put together, both the pictures and the words.
