The Fall Concert

Amanda and Alex bid a fond farewell to King Hickory and family. After all that excitement both kitties just wanted to rest. Alex suggested the head over to Koko’s.”Alex, the trees are so pretty. How do they do that?”

“I don’t know Mandy, but I saw pictures before we left. I didn’t know if it was true but I wanted to check it out. I didn’t tell you because it I was wrong it would have been a big letdown. But, as it was true, I hoped it would be a most pleasant surprise.”

“Well it would have been much nicer if those squirrels hadn’t thrown those hard shelled things.”

“True, but we did make some new friends.”

“Yes, I do have to agree with that.”

Amanda had a nice bump on her head and it still hurts a little bit. Walking slowly they realized they were getting close to the creek.

“Ouch. Do you always just hop on whoever is in front of you?”

“Oh, sorry. I didn’t see you. No, I don’t. What are you two kitties doing wandering through these woods?”

“Well Mr. Frog, whatever your name is, we’re heading over to Koko’s.”

“You’re the wild bunch!! Welcome and I hope you stick around for the fall concert.”

“Fall concert?”

“Yes, we always celebrate the change of the colors.”

“Why do they change colors?”

“I don’t know but I’ll bet Koko does.”

With that Amanda and Alex started walking again towards their old friends home. Now they were really intrigued. Not only did Amanda want to learn about the reasons for the fall colors, but also now they had a concert to enjoy.

“Amanda, Alex, welcome! The grapevine beat you. The whole forest is alive with excitement at your return. Come in and relax a bit.”

“The whole forest?”

“Yes Mandy. You two are very popular.”

“Wow!”

“Any special reason for your visit?”

“Yes there is. We were just coming to visit but now I’m curious about all the bright colors.”

“Ah, the leaves have put on their Sunday Best haven’t they? The humans have some complicated explanation. The real reason is that Mother Nature is telling all the forest creatures that winter and cold weather is coming.”

“Aw, that’s a lovely way to get a message out. The frogs said there is a concert to celebrate the colors.”

“Yes and its tomorrow night. Are you going to wait around for it?”

“Yes, I wouldn’t want to miss that.”

The rest of the day and the next, Amanda and Alex played with Koko’s charges, and helped Koko. Then Amanda, Alex, Koko and family walked down to the creek to listen to another great concert.
