Skit #3 of Jerry & Jill Series
A Strange Visitor Part I
Puppets: Dad & Jerry
Dad: Come on outside and help me with this fence today, Jerry. We have a lot of work to get done before your Mother and Jill get back from their shopping spree.
Jerry: What are we going to do?
Dad: I need to fix the old fence that the cows keep breaking through…and your Mother has been after me for weeks to paint the fence around the front yard.
Jerry: Paint! Ugh! It’s pretty hot out there for the paint to dry right….. isn’t it dad?
Dad: Oh it will dry just fine. A perfect day for painting. Come on, let’s get busy. We have a day’s work ahead of us……….. Where are the paintbrushes? I put them right here in this shed after we painted the barn last month. Do you know anything about them, Jerry?
Jerry: Well…ugh…….I think they are in the garage.
Dad: Who would have put them there…and for what purpose? I always keep them in the shed.
Jerry: Dad….I painted my wagon and meant to wash them out, and I guess I just forgot.
Dad: Do you know how much paintbrushes cost, son? You have to take care of them, or you will have to buy new ones… It can get costly. Let’s take a look at them.
Jerry: I ‘m really sorry. I will try to remember the next time……Here they are.
Dad: Let’s clean them with some turpentine, and see if we can get them to be a useable again……………. They look pretty decent now. I think we will give them a try.
Jerry: Will we fix the fence or paint first?
Dad: It is cooler this morning and the sun will give the fence time to dry. We may as well paint the fence now.
Jerry: This is work! Does your arm ever get tired, Dad?
Dad: It sure does, Jerry. God gave us so much energy. He wants us to use it and be diligent workers. A slothful man does not please God. You know God told Adam when he put them out of the garden that man would work by the sweat of his brow. A man must provide for his family and take care of them.
Jerry: You sure do that! You are the best Dad a fellow could have.
Dad: Even when I have to discipline you?
Jerry: Well, that is not a fun part, but I guess I need it sometimes.
Dad: I wonder who that is coming over here?
Jerry: It looks like someone from the construction site over across the field. I wonder what they want?
Dad: I don’t know, but we will soon find out. Here comes the truck up the lane. It looks like there are two people in the truck. I don’t know what they would be coming here?
Jerry: Maybe they are thirsty and need a drink of water.
Dad: I can hardly imagine that. They come prepared with their own water containers. It must be something important. We will soon find out. They are coming this direction now.
Narrator: What do the strange visitors want? Do you think someone is in trouble? Maybe they found out that Jerry and his sister were over in the construction zone. Are Jerry and Jill in trouble? We will find out next time. Come back boys and girls to see who and what the visitors want.
