A Secret Affair

It looks like two pictures. Those are two men. No, the one in the green is a woman.

What are they doing there? They’re playing tiddlywinks. Where are they? What kind of building is this? Sort of like this, I think. You better be careful, because you could be somewhere else. Yes, it does. It’s some kind of a building. Is this cement, or what?

What do you want their names to be? You never know, do you? Are these three men? I think they have something to say to somebody. What are they saying? They’re saying “yeah.” What have they been doing? Which one is it? Is that the one that’s living there?

The thing on the table looks like a birthday cake. She looks pretty well, doesn’t she? She does. I don’t know why they’d throw a birthday party with only two people.

Is that somebody standing up there? Looks like it. It could be a coat hung up there. I don’t know why it would be right there. This picture doesn’t look exciting to me. Does it to you? They’re just talking. It looks like a man in the back. What are they two women talking about? It’s hard to tell. She was shaving her legs this morning. How do you know it’s a woman? You never know.

It’s in some building, and somebody’s standing right there. Why do you think they’re standing there? It seems like neither of them is very big. I want part of it, or I want all of it. There’s the other one. Cause there’s a sale on Friday, I don’t know why. What’s she doing? For his grade.

I don’t think this is a very entertaining picture to talk about it. There’s nothing exciting going on. They’re not talking excitedly with their hands. Are they gossiping or making plans?

There’s some Reagans right there. What color are they? Yes, I’m glad to have you. A little bit pink. One of them was yellow.

One of them was a man and a woman. Whether there are men or women there. Is this one a man or a woman? It’s hard to tell. Let’s see what we can get. The table in the back has a man. What’s his name? His name is Hank. It’s an odd name.

What kind of a building is this? What is an imaginary name for a woman? That’s their wish, isn’t it? I wish it was. I don’t have any of it. I don’t want to throw it for you. There’s one. Stick it in the Keys. Let them have it. I will have it, honey.

I want to go. Where? I just don’t want her to go ahead. We can do these for today. She’s going this week. There’s the rest of it, right here.

The woman’s name is Amy. Which woman is Amy? How do you know they’re both women? They seem like us. Let’s get someone to take them down there.

What’s this window, here? They’re too close together. Is that a sign in the background?

Maybe there’s a horse back there. What is the horse doing there?

There’s got to be some reason they’re meeting there. It’s a strange place to meet. The two people don’t fit together. Whose birthday is it? How do you know it’s someone’s birthday? Is it what you want? Yes.

Why would three men and one woman go someplace? They’re there because they’re there. They do have a reason for it. I imagine this man and this woman are there without permission of the parents. Yeah. That’s an odd place for a young couple to meet. So why are they meeting there? Maybe it just happened that way. They come in there because they can sit together there and that’s what they want.

It looks like an airplane wing outside the window. It’s an odd place for a couple to meet. If they’re in love, why are they sneaking around about it? He has one. Her dad might kill the boy she’s meeting because he doesn’t approve.

Why are these guys sneaking around? One of them wants her ring back. It’s my ring, she says. It might be an engagement ring. They’re in an alliance together.

One, two, three, four, five. Five what? Some bras.

If they’ve got a serious thing to talk about, why are they so close to the other people? Why are the other people listening to them? It’s kind of rude, huh? Yeah. They’re hearing what they say.

There are suitcases. This is his last one. What’s in the suitcase? That’s the needy one. I hadn’t thought of it. Are they meeting and going away? We don’t know who’s going to be that way. Are they going somewhere together? No. That’s a big one. They might be planning to go somewhere together.

What kind of building is this? Is this an airplane wing? They belong together, don’t they? If this is an airplane, where are they going to go? They’re looking at each other, and she just wants ladies there. She doesn’t want that man there. They all look good. These are the two main ones.

What do these two people see in one another? Maybe they don’t like each other. Maybe it’s just a way for her to get away. Why are they sitting so close together? They look like they’re ehhh. Why is this couple listening in? It’s cold in this place. He needs to see it. This girl doesn’t like this boy. The two of them, they’re going to leave. That would be exciting, wouldn’t it? Why are they at an airport? What kind of building is this? Why are they so close together? That looks like an airplane wing. Do you think that’s a horse back there?

What does it smell like in the room? It smells terrible. It smells like real honey. Is Amy eating some honey? Yeah. Are there other smells? It doesn’t look too clean for an airport. They might have sugar there. What else, I don’t know.

Why would you bring a horse inside of a building? There’s a horse stable between the buildings. How else would a horse be there? It could be somebody’s coat. Doesn’t look like it, though.

I’d be careful which plane I took. Where do you think the airplane is going?

They’re blowing bubbles in the air. They’ve got one dish there. They’ve got their fingers on the dish.

Maybe this guy and this girl are having an affair, and she doesn’t like it. She’s got these guys in the back watching the guy in the front. That really does look like a horse.

I’m thinking of their families. I think there are three buildings and the horse is coming out of the building behind them. Maybe it’s one of their horses. Do airplanes have horses?

You going to get it? No, you’re going to tell me where to get it. I wouldn’t do that, would you? Don’t get it to her. I don’t want it because it’s a battle. She never gets her way, when he has it, the little boy. Where do you see a little boy? Maybe one of them has a little boy as a secret?

They don’t have good parents. Why would a mother and a father have all these problems? Maybe they are in New Jersey.

In the back it looks like a man. There they are, right there. You’d think that was a man. That could be a girl and her brother. Well, I know you know what to do with it. I think that this must have been a long time ago. He doesn’t want to see any of them. The horse likes to go “neigh.”

There aren’t many people in the picture. Where do you think they’re going to go? I don’t see how they can go so close to the ground. The picture is pretty, isn’t it? I like it.

How does this story end? I wouldn’t have a secret affair to begin with. Would you? Do they get on the plane? She just said, he came and said to bring his stool. They had that before. With all the problems they’ve got, they’ve got just a short time.

Escaping from Enemies

Who’s that? What’s that? The girl is going toward it. There at the top of the tree. Well, she wasn’t there. She’s from the birds.

Who is the person in the picture, with brown hair? Her name is Jane. What is Jane doing? She’s dancing with Geneva. Jane’s gumming up the works.

Are all these nests up here? Quite a few nests. That’s all a tree. It wouldn’t get that big, would it? I can’t see the birds.

What is Jane doing up in the tree? She’s going to get the little thing. Is she a climber? She’s going to jump onto this one. Jane is a friend. We have two people. Are they friends?

Is she escaping or pretending to be? She’s escaping from the enemy. Who is the enemy? I don’t know, but she’s pretty clever. She’s dancing and singing. I never saw her before. Why is she escaping? What did she do? It’s somebody else she hardly knows.

What is this way over on the side? See this little thing here? Who is this? It looks like another person is hanging there. Which one of our friends is there? Well, someone is there because there is a guy standing there. Well, he’s got bloomers on. How come there are more enemies than friends? There are friends here, see?

Where is this bush coming from out of nowhere? What kind of a bush is it? She’ll tell you. It’s just a tree. It’s possible. Get them going. Is this a trick tree? See, it’s got glasses, and it’s got ribbons and what is this thing right here behind the girl? Why would the tree have glasses that big? It has to be an artificial tree.

Is that one of our men back behind there, with Jane? This is a branch of something, or is this a resting spot? Well, there’s only one of her. And she is too tied up, which is feasible, before they got there.

This is an awful lot of strange people. The one man thinks he has partial control. But he gave a signal to get all the guys who are coming from New Orleans. They’re surrounding the tree. It you look there’s little orange spots. I don’t know, but it’s something scary. Yeah, they’re surrounding the tree. They’re already there. These guys are so busy that they’re not noticing it. That color is close to the sky. This is all black. Why are the men surrounding the tree? They’re enemies. There are a lot of enemies, look. They’re not welcome, I can see that.

Why are they enemies? You could be right in there if you want to. Maybe I will climb a tree. Yeah, you can. I won’t. I just can’t do it. What if you could? Yeah. Would you climb this tree? Yeah. What would you do in this tree? Just take it in there and put some syrup on. I’d look for some of my buddies.

How could they get a tree that big all in one piece? That’s more than a tree. Look how thick those branches are. There are more guys surrounding it. We decided a bunch of them are coming right there. I don’t know why this tree is there. They’ve got all kind of weapons along with them. Look how small they are.

Jane is out there on a limb. She knows where she is. I don’t know. I thought I did.

Is Jane going to be able to escape from the men surrounding the tree? I haven’t heard anything of it. Yes, she’s going to escape. How? The seventh one she could get away from. She’s looking for those guys to come. Give it to him. She knows they’re enemies, but the rest of them don’t know. They don’t think they’re enemies. They’re just working on the tree.

She’s got a whole bunch of friends behind her. She’s the leader. What is behind them? There’s some back in there. I think these guys in the back are looking for trouble. She doesn’t know the enemies are attacking. She’s not aware of the fact that they’re surrounding the tree. One of her relatives probably got that tree.

There’s a lot of them. This is some place near heaven. I’m surprised that many people are there already. Why? Maybe Marcie is one of the enemies. Marcie’s one of the friends. Maybe she’s way up in this tree.

What about Jane in the tree? It doesn’t look like what I’m waiting for. I’m going to do some other things. What is Jane doing? It sure looks different. Yeah, it sure is. Yeah, there’s not too much to it. It looks like it’s on top of a mountain. That sounds right. It makes a difference, doesn’t it? Jane has long legs. They all look alike. We would have been something if we went to the whole shop. That’s where they were sitting. I haven’t been back there. I can’t remember anything about it.

Who are you for, this person or this person? I’m for Jane. There are two people there together in the picture. They’re a lot alike. I was looking like Jane. I’m a little different now. I don’t know if she’s an enemy or not.

It’s written on there that you should take it and bring it to me. There’s one of them. Three and one more. We’re all in this story. Vivian was the head guy. She is going to the other side. You let her go so easy. Maybe she’s going on a secret mission. Maybe she’s going to pull these people back farther than they think. We’ve got to keep them there now because we need them. We could get tougher. They all look younger than me now. It makes a difference.

Who’s on your team now, Betty? I’m surprised that Vivian isn’t on our team. Everything is a little bit different now, isn’t it? Well, what is the solution to the problem? Jane has got a lot of support around the tree. But the tree has a lot of support in the tree. The tree is only half grown. What is the solution to the problem? They’re all different. What if we fly off the tree? We don’t know what we’d do then. I was getting scared when I was in the tree there. I was halfway between them and me, and I didn’t know where I was.

She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain

Who is that woman? That's me. It is out west. I have probably been there. Where is it? It is out west. I want to take a vacation, that's all. I'd like to sleep out west. So nobody can bother me. It is a pretty picture. Where is the diving board? I want to go swimming. I like to swim. She paid it twice. Just swell. Where's the lake? There's ice up there. What is her name? Well, somebody else. Because over there, see how that is? She's in the bus. Where is the bus? She's just wishing there was a bus. The bus is covered by the ice. Look, that's her arms. Is that a bathroom over there? The bathroom is for relieving oneself. Does this woman have a husband? Maybe not. I don't know. We will have to find when we see it. Is that what you were looking in, in that package? That sounds like it. How many cloud clusters do you see? That's not too bad. There might be flowers covered with ice. We haven't thought of a name for her yet. What is her name? Julia. She's quite a gal, isn't she? I remember the train. Oh gosh, yes.

The train is behind the ice cube. That's a big ice cube! Where is the train going? Ice skating! Can you show me? Is it somebody you know? Sure. Where does she live? Sacramento. She must be in Idaho. I would want to get out of that. That's a job. It started in California and it's up in Idaho. It's about three states over isn't it? What is she doing that far from home? Maybe she's got a boyfriend over there some place. How could she go so far from home in such a short amount of rest? It's not very close to Florida. Son of a gun. She might be really cold in those clothes. How old is she? Old enough to know better. Old enough to know to bring clothes. I don't think so. She's going to go diving. She might be on a diving board.

Where is Julia going to go after this? She can't go too far. She can't walk that far. The water is too cold. The diving board won't last forever. But that one will last a lot longer than a wooden one. She must just not get cold if she's wearing that. She looks like an Indian boy to me. How old is she? We can just make it up. Why not? This is supposed to be imaginary. She's sweet sixteen. She is pretty young. She's got sandals on up to her knees. That's the way it looks. Not good shoes to wear in the snow. They're all going swimming. Is that a he or a she? What's back there behind the ice? It looks like a whale to me. There is heat. The heat is coming from the sun. It's a beautiful sky. There is a tunnel going from Florida to this place. I thought so too, yes. Yeah, I knew. He talked about that before he left. I don't know what this brick thing is. Is that a female? You mean to tell me that they can slide over the tops of all these mountains? Unless they slide down! Is Julia going to ride the train after this? I didn't see a train in there, did you? Well, we think it may be behind the mountain. You know that song, “She'll be coming around the mountain when she comes, she'll be coming around the mountain when she comes, she'll be comin around the mountain, she'll be comin around the mountain, she'll be comin around the mountain when she comes”.

Those are really rugged mountains. She said to me take your turn and we'll go ahead and get started. And then he took it off. Did the whale freeze? Why is there a whale in the mountains? He swam there, and then he froze. He's a big one. I'm not sure that's a whale. Back there it looks like a bunny rabbit. Maybe there's a bunny rabbit in the mountains. It could be. We've got to find them out and go soon. Well don't go too far, because I want to stick my nose in. We know where they are. I could have jumped over that mountain myself. There is too much wind in there. What is this big whatever it is? What kind of animal is that? We told you about this place. It looks like where I was born. How should the story end? Well we just got started! We could continue it this week, or we could continue it now. It looks like she wants to fly. Is she going to fly? She is going to need some assistance. Do you want her to fly? Sure. Where is she going to fly? This thing bothers me. It looks like a pain in the neck. When I go there, I'll look around and see what I can find. Where is she going to fly? Where she helped me roll the Coke. I didn't get any of that Coke. She's going to go dipsy doodle. She should have a black headpiece. Where is she going to get the black headpiece? We're going to have to go to a Catholic church to get it. She's going to have to fly to get it. How is she going to fly there? Her headpiece is going to help her get there. It helps her fly.

Under the Apple Tree

I see a young lady sitting under a tree.  It looks like a beautiful woman.  As a matter of fact, I was outside. That’s pretty.  She had a whole page. 


What’s the woman’s name?  I don’t know.  That’s a pretty one.  Her name is Betty. 


What is she holding in her hand?  She’s holding her head in her hands. It looks like she’s holding something.


It looks like another person behind her.  Also, she’s got a hat on her head. 


He likes her party.  She doesn’t like him.  I don’t like him.  There’s trouble.  Yes, there is.  Right up here.  Ten troubles.  Right down there.  


What does Betty want?  I can’t see what’s under the tree.  Betty wants money.  Is it two dollars?  No, that’s nothing.


I think somebody might be getting apples.  It could possibly be an apple tree.   I think that’s what it is.  Where is the apple tree? 


He was having a good time. 


There are other trees beside apple trees.  Now, what kind it is, I don’t remember.  Do you like apples?  Yeah. 


Where is this woman?  It looks like she’s sitting down.  Just sitting down.  There’s that.  Okay. 


What is she holding in her hands?  That looks funny.  I don’t know where I’ll get them from. She just disappears.  Are those horses in the background?  She has long hair.  I thought it was. 


Who did I give my apple tree to?  Where was it?  In Indiana.  They’re popular up there.  How do you know this?  You told me.  Do you believe everything everyone tells you?  Yes.  I trust people.  You can’t trust me.  Why not?  I don’t trust anybody.  How can you trust anybody?  The man who took my apple tree was a real nice guy.  I should never have let him.  We’ll take them out. 


If you have an apple tree, which state is that?  Betty had an apple tree in Indiana.  Great big red apples.  I’ve seen an apple tree.  Not in every state in the union. 


Can we?  Yes, we can. 


What are these bright things?  Are they trees or are they horses?  Could it be horses with the apple trees?  If it’s in Indiana, it would be perfect.  There’s one for kids. 


Do the horses eat the apples?  I think you’re right on that.  A horse will gobble down an apple. What color apples do the horses like best?  Anything.  If you offer an apple to a horse, he’ll eat it.  I saw two horses right outside here about ten days ago. 


It doesn’t necessarily have to be in Indiana.  In the state of New York, that’s another place.  In the northern states they have all kinds of apples, big ones, red, yellow, green.  A fresh, new tree.  I’m not going to eat the whole tree.  Just the apple.  That’s what I was thinking. 


I just know that apples are very important in the state of New York.  When I lived in Iceland, which I did, we got them from New York, and it was great.  They just came to be eaten.  They were shipped.  All the apples from New York or any of those northern states were great. 


What else can we do with apples?  There’s all kinds of things you could make.  Apple pie, apple cake.  People love to eat apples.  They’re really good.  Betty is going to pick the apples.  Apples from the north.  Not way north, just north.  Good old apple pie.  With ice cream.  Do they make pies here?  Yes, they cook with apples here.  It’s like me.  Those are great big apples.  Yes. That’s what I want to get. 


That’s a pan.  There is it, right there. 


What is Betty going to do next, after she gets up from under the tree?  I don’t know where they are.  There’s good apples in southern California, too.  Is she in California?  No, it’s too hot down there.  In the spring and fall it’s beginning to get cold. 


It’s too sandy to grow apples in Florida. 


I’m from all over.  I think I was born in Indiana. 


I’ve noticed even outside here, in the back, you can’t sit a whole lot of things in the ground.  It is not easy to do.  I have tried it.  I had a big thing and I planted it but most of the time it would just die.  Gardening is hard in Florida.  It’s so hot and sandy.  I don’t like sand.  What do they grow?  Oranges. 


In Indiana there’s wonderful apples.  And snow.  We had everything. 


Where is Betty from?  Where there are apples.  From New York state. 


It looks like an apple tree, although it’s very heavily polished.  It’s very nice. 


What is the woman going to do next?  She’s going to pick some apples.  What is she going to do with the apples?  Clean them and polish them and eat them.  Cook them real good.  She could make applesauce or apple cider and make a great, big, sweet apple pie in the kitchen.

Optical Illusion

That’s probably a man.  It makes sense.  He’s trying to jump.  That looks like a cliff.  A man would be dumb enough to do something like that.  He’s never going to make it to the other side. 


Why is he trying to jump to the other side?  He wants to win the trophy. 


He’s not heavy.  He’s spry.  These are cliffs on both sides. He’s trying to jump over here.  I don’t think I would try to jump over a mountain for a trophy.  Maybe there’s money, too?  I doubt that. 


Jumping from here to here is terrible.  If somebody tried to do this, forget it.  It’s an optical illusion. 


Where is the man?  Where would there be cliffs?  He’s out west some place.  Where is he from?  I have no idea.  Does he live in the west or is he on vacation?  Is he having fun on a trip?  That doesn’t look like much fun.  Where is he from?  No telling.  Maybe the north? 


The cliffs scare me.  I’m Icelandic.  There’d be big cliffs and different stuff in Iceland.  I was used to that when I was a kid. 


Is he going to make it to the other side?  I think it’s just an illusion.  Someone would never go if he didn’t make sure he could make it first.  It’d be silly if they didn’t know the land real well.  He probably knows what’s going on.  There’s no way that anybody could jump from here to over there. 


I’m from Iceland.  People don’t think about this much.  They wouldn’t do that.  They know better. 


I was just looking at this.  He must have a good reason for jumping because there’s not that many stupid people in the world.  What’s his reason?  He’s doing it for a girl. 


He doesn’t look like a girl.  Maybe it’s an optical illusion.  I’ve seen some pretty rough places, but I’ve never seen anything like that. 


The rock on the right looks like a face. 


I was looking at the National Geographic and it was a new one and that was up in Iceland. 


It looks like a very dangerous thing to do this.  I think there’s a mirror behind some big rock.  They made a rock especially for him to jump over. 


The girl wouldn’t be impressed.  Would you?  There might be ropes down there. 


He’s trying to impress more than one girl. 


It doesn’t look that dangerous to me.  It might just be a joke.  He’s going to land because he’s already jumped it.  He does this all the time. 


There’s a turtle at the top.  What is the turtle doing there?  That’s for us to figure out.  The idea I like. 


You have to black and white it more.  The guy is jumping from one thing to another.  He’s way up here and they’re way down there.  He wants it to look like it’s big and dangerous, but he probably knows the land.  So you think the girls are watching him? 


There’s enough spaces down here, it looks like a big man.  It doesn’t seem likely that the man would be stupid enough to jump.  I think it’s an optical illusion.  Do you know anybody that stupid?  I hope not. 


The rock looks like a big mouth.  Do you know anybody that ugly? 


The girls are watching him. 


I don’t think anybody’s that dumb.  At least I don’t know anybody that dumb.  He’d have to be very bold to do something dumb like that. 


That desert doesn’t look very real.  The guy is running to jump over something.  There would have to be something in between the cliffs.  It’s kind of fun making these. 


Maybe that’s a turtle at the top.  It looks to me like he’s hanging on to something.  If this is an optical illusion, he could be jumping from two or three steps.  No man would jump that far in his right mind. 


What do we want his name to be?  Idiot.  But he’s pretty smart because he doesn’t have any obvious things that he’s hanging by except at the very beginning.  You could make a picture look like it’s really at a distance.  You could have three or four photographs of different things set in different positions. 


I just want him to make it over the water. 


Besides that, this face and this face and this face are like a mile apart and nobody could jump that far.  If this guy is drawing a picture on the wall, he would look this tall.  You could make a picture look like it’s real big and it wouldn’t be that big.  Down at the bottom, there’s a man picture, too.  There’s different sizes of people.  He’s just taken different photographs and stuck them together.  People can do some stupid things nowadays.  The face at the bottom is bigger than the face at the top.  It doesn’t look like a face, though.  It looks like trees.  The face on the right looks like a carrot.  A very wrinkly carrot. 


I was reading National Geographic and I was just reading it and they found animals frozen to death.  I think there are animals in this picture.  That might be a cow on top of a hill. 


He better keep his feet together or he’s not going to be a cow.  He’s going to be mush.


It looks like a rushing river he’s trying to come across.  They’re doing too many different kinds of things.  The man in the middle has a very big head. 


Do you think there’s one woman on the side or two or three or four?  She’s looking through something to see him.  She’s close to him.  How many ladies do you think there are?  You can’t really tell with a picture.  They can do a lot of things.  It looks like there’s two women standing together.  Maybe four or five.  They couldn’t talk.  You can’t talk as easy in the mountains as you do out here.  You can do a lot of things with photography.  What do the women say to the man?  They’re not saying anything important. 


At the top, it looks like the bottom of the ocean.  How can you walk on top of a tree like that?  It looks fishy to me. 


What is this man going to do next?  Suicide.  If he makes it across, what is he going to do next?  Do you think he’s going to make it?  He could have a lot of ropes and things around him so he’s real safe.   Is this going to be in a show?  Some of that stuff is fun to watch, but I don’t think that would be fun to watch.  It’s too artificial looking. 


If you look at the picture sideways, it looks like a big optical illusion.  It doesn’t look sensible to me.  There might be water rushing down.  The water comes through the mountains.  This guy must have gotten very upset.  They’ve already built a bridge across, because I don’t think there’s someone that stupid.  There might be a bridge there.  It might be in somebody’s back yard. 


This picture is beautiful. 


Do you think they’re taking a picture from the right or the left?  It’s a pretty good optical illusion.  I like this picture.  That could be snow between two houses.  I wouldn’t want to jump across it. 


How does this story end?  Rushing through the river.  He’s going to make it to the other side.  He could be doing it to impress the girls.  Some girls are easily impressed.  Are these girls impressed?  I doubt that.  These girls look too old to even be out there. 


This picture is three different places fit together.  It’s amazing how they can do that.
