Happy Lenny Lee Day and Welcome to the Lenny Lee Fest. The best blogfest EVAH



I am joining some other writers in spreading Lenny Lee sunshine. The following is a story I wrote for my friend Lenny Lee. I hope he enjoys it. He's the BEST! He's so COOL I want everyone to hop over to his blog right after this and check it out. Here's the link:  Lenny's World


         Super Lenny and Rocky (Lenny’s Rad, Rockin’ Raccoon)
      Super Lenny stared at his sidekick waiting on an answer.

      Rocky (Lenny’s Rad Rockin’ Raccoon) counted that Lenny had eaten five lemon tarts and topped them off with three Reese cups.
       Lenny rolled his eyes. “I couldn’t have eaten that much.” He exhaled and fell back onto the kitchen floor. “What will happen if someone needs us?”

       Rocky thrust out his hand to pull Super Lenny up.

       “I am afraid you did eat that much. I counted.” He shoved his calculator into Super Lenny’s view. Rocky couldn’t count and he always held his calculator in case of an emergency. “If we get an urgent call, you’ll be okay. You are Super Lenny, after all.”

        Super Lenny and Rocky were always on duty. At any moment they might have to go to the ends of the earth to bring sunshine into someone’s life. Super Lenny had the gift.

         Super Lenny pulled the curtain back and looked through the window. The sun had disappeared behind the mountain. 
         “It’s getting late,” Rocky said. He put his hand over the knob and pulled the door closed.

         Super Lenny watched as Rocky climbed his favorite tree. He wondered why Rocky insisted on sleeping in a tree. He would never understand that. He’d tried to do it one night. It made his back hurt, because he rolled over and fell to the ground. OUCH! Super Lenny rubbed his back as he recalled that night.

         He shoved his hands into his pockets, turned the telephone ringer to high setting and headed off to bed. His nice soft bed.

          A loud ringing in Super Lenny’s ears woke him up. It must be a call for sunshine, he thought. Super Lenny looked at the number as Rocky (Lenny’s Rad, Rockin’ Raccoon) raced in through the door. Rocky was so rad, he had a connection to the phone in his tree and man was he ever fast! 

            “Looks like it’s from North Carolina, someone named Robyn Campbell,” Super Lenny said. He pulled off his comfy jammies. (Super Lenny slept with his clothes under his jammies. He had to. It saved time. Rocky didn’t have these worries, since he didn’t wear clothes.)

            Super Lenny and Rocky (Lenny’s Rad, Rockin’ Raccoon) hopped into the Lenny mobile. That kickin’, solar powered super car just happened to travel faster than the wind.  Of course, he drove responsibly. Flying when there were other cars on the road.

            “Set it for North Carolina,” Super Lenny said. He pulled down his shades, because the blast from the liftoff was too much for his eyes and they flew off through the wisp of clouds that appear so delicate when looking at them from the ground. But Super Lenny knew these clouds were strong and hardy. He was always stunned at their beauty.
            Super Lenny and Rocky arrived at Robyn’s house five minutes later.

            Super Lenny and Rocky (Lenny’s Rad, Rockin’ Raccoon) brought sunshine to Robyn. So much sunshine that it looked like daytime in the dead of night. They laughed together, talked about animals and rode horses. They ate strawberry shortcake and topped it off with apple pie and vanilla ice cream. She promised to keep in touch and made Super Lenny promise to blog as much as he could. They waved goodbye as Super Lenny and Rocky (Lenny’s Rad, Rockin’ Raccoon) flew off feeling good, because they created sunshine for their friend. 

Thank you Lenny. For always bringing me sunshine and laughter. I love you tons and tons!  (^_^)  XOXOXOXO
