Once upon a time, in a very tall building, lived a bat. Her name was Butter. Butter the bat.

Butter the bat spent her days hanging upside down and doing bat things.

During the day, Butter the bat would sleep. But when the sun started to go down, she would fly down, down, down and out the window of the very tall building. After a long day of sleeping, Butter the bat was very thirsty! So thirsty! She had a favorite lake with the best water around, and she took a very long drink of water. It tasted so good!

But Butter the bat knew that other things tasted good too! After all, her name was Butter! Butter the bat happened to hang upside down in a very busy bakery, and she was very good at knowing what tasted the tastiest! She was very good at watching the bakers bake their pies and their bread and their scones. And she was very good at sampling the crumbs that dropped on the floor every night.

But one night when Butter the bat was supposed to fly out of the very tall building to find fruit to eat, and water to drink, she saw a basket of fruit on the table of the very busy bakery. The bakers had been so busy that they forgot to use all their fruit! Butter the bat knew just what she would do!

Butter the bat knew where the mixing bowls were. She knew where the flour was. She definitely knew where the butter was!

Butter the bat knew her time had finally come! She was going to bake a pie! But not just any pie. She was going to make many pies!

Butter the bat looked at the clock. She had just a few hours to bake because the bakers came to work very early in the morning. She got all her ingredients together after she had a snack. Oh, those sweet potatoes were good! That would be her first pie!

Then she saw cranberries and blueberries and more berries! This was fun!

Berries would make a delectable fruit pie! And a delectable fruit pie needed a delectable pie crust. So she added just a little more butter than usual. And then she added a little more again.

After baking and baking and baking, Butter the bat looked at the clock. It was almost time for the bakers to come to work. So she ate one pie and left the others on the table. That was the nice thing to do. And Butter the bat hoped they would like them. She really did!

When the busy bakers arrived in the morning, they couldn’t believe their eyes! There on the table was pie after pie after pie! There was a sweet potato pie, a berry pie, a peanut butter pie and a mystery pie. They tasted the mystery pie because it was so mysterious! It tasted like butter. As smooth as butter.

Butter the bat was asleep because she was a bat and it was daytime now. But in her dreams, she heard the conversations of people eating her pies! She heard them say how wonderful and buttery they were. She heard them talk about the mystery pie and how these pies were the best they had ever ate!

The very busy bakers were talking too! They wondered who had baked these wonderful pies. They wondered if this baker knew that they were the best baker in the building. Butter the bat heard that! Even in her dreams! The best baker in the building? That was her!

And so night after night, the busy bakers would leave ingredients on the counter for Butter. And she would bake! A sweet potato pie, a berry pie, a peanut butter pie and many butter pies! Customers would line up day after day after day to buy the pies that Butter baked! And word spread all around about the best pies in the building! Butter was very happy about this. Very happy!

One day, Butter the bat baked an especially delectable pie. This pie had peanut butter filling and pancakes for a crust! It was her own recipe! And word got out far and wide about this pie! Everyone wanted to try a piece! That’s when two dogs named Peanut Butter Brickle and Digby Pancake decided to come to the bakery. They traveled a very long distance to get a piece of this pie. And Butter the bat was very happy about this.

So she baked an extra special pie for Peanut Butter Brickle and Digby Pancake with a lot of extra love. And butter. She sat the pie on the counter with the other pies, but the bakers would know who the special pie was for. When Brickle and Digby came to the bakery that afternoon, they were ready! Ready for their pie! They had dreamed of this pie!

The bakers handed Brickle the pie because everyone knew Digby wouldn’t share. And as Brickle and Digby ate their first slice, they knew it. They knew this was the best pie they had ever eaten! They thanked the bakers and licked them and asked for the recipe! But the bakers told them that it was a secret. And a secret it was!

So that night, after Digby ate the last piece of pie, Brickle decided that since the pie recipe was so secret, he would try to look in the bakery windows to see how they made it. Yes. Yes! He had to do that! And as he gazed in the window, he saw the baker. The best baker in the building. Butter the bat! And she was singing!

My name is Butter the bat,

I’m the best baker around,

In this building, I hang upside down!

I wait till night falls

When the sun goes down

And I bake all the pies

That everyone loves,

Even the flies!

Now, not everyone is accustomed to seeing a bat bake a pie and sing. And not every bat that bakes a pie is used to a dog trying to steal her recipe. But it happened! And when Butter the bat saw Brickle looking in, she knew. Her secret was no longer a secret. She was the best baker in the building. Yes. Yes! It was her! What would he think?

With one look, Butter the bat asked Brickle to keep her secret. And with one bite of a special pie Butter the bat flew out to him, they agreed. To be the best at something is good. But BEING the best individual you can is better. Even better than butter. Butter the bat thought for a moment. It didn’t matter who was the secret baker or that she wasn’t going to get credit for baking the best pies in the building. What was important is that she was sharing her talents with others to make them happy.

And so for many days after that, and many months after that, and many years after that, the bakery left ingredients for Butter the bat. And Butter baked so many pies! She never got tired of baking pies or seeing everyone happy as they ate them.

Butter wasn’t just the best baker in the building. She was the best at making others happy.

And Peanut Butter Brickle, Digby Pancake and Butter the bat baked, ate pies and lived happily ever after.

The Tail Of Winky The Wise Owl Who Needed Advice

Look for a new story the last day of each month in 2019!!

Once upon a time, and that time was last Tuesday, lived a wise owl who loved to give advice. Her name was Winky because she gave her answers to others with one wink or two winks!

So during the time of this story, which was last Tuesday, Winky The Wise Owl was doing what she always did on Tuesday. This was her busiest work day! She was high up in her tree, and one by one, others lined up to ask for her advice. She felt very important!

First in line there was a squirrel.

The squirrel had waited and camped overnight! He had to make sure he was the first in line to ask Winky The Wise Owl if he should use bark or twigs for his nest that winter. One wink would be for bark. Two winks for twigs. Winky The Wise Owl turned her head all the way around and winked twice. Twigs it would be!

The next individual in line to ask for Winky’s advice was a snake. This snake was new to the area and had just slithered into town. But as soon as she did, she heard about Winky The Wise Owl and rushed to get her place in line! She had to know if she should hide in tall grass during the day or a pile of leaves. She was new to this area, she explained again. Winky spun her head all the way around and winked once for tall grass. Definitely. Grass.

Winky The Wise Owl was already getting tired from giving advice. But she looked at the line waiting to see her to ask her very important questions. Winky had been in this business all her life. She followed in the wings of her family. And her reputation was known far and wide! But sometimes, yes sometimes, she wanted to ask her own questions too.

And although she would look in the mirror to find her winking answers, she was running out. And she needed advice! What would she do?

That’s when the next in line to see Winky stepped up to her tree. There were two dogs named Peanut Butter Brickle and Digby Pancake. They barked their hellos and looked up at Winky. She looked very wise on this Tuesday. And she also looked very tired! Peanut Butter Brickle knew that their question would be an important one.

Brickle and Digby had heard about Winky The Wise Owl from many places and individuals on their travels.

They heard about all her great advice, and they knew how it felt to want to help others. They also knew helping others could make you tired! And they just wanted to ask Winky The Wise Owl one thing. Peanut Butter Brickle asked Winky if SHE needed advice. Brickle asked Winky if she needed to ask them a question. They were there to help her.

Winky was Wise, but she wasn’t expecting anyone to help her on this Tuesday. She turned her head all the way around. And instead of winking, she decided to sing her answer.

I am Winky The Wise Owl

I get asked who and what and if and how!

All the questions others ask me,

I wink the way I think things should be!

With the turn of my head,

And the wink of my eye,

I know all the answers

Up to the sky!

But I need to know,

Should I take a break

Should I take a vacation

Should I bake a cake?

Should I fly on a plane

Or sail on a boat

Should I learn a new language

Or make friends with some goats?

Give me an answer,

Is it ok,

To take a vacation,

And come back to winking another day?

Peanut Butter Brickle and Digby Pancake decided to bark their answers. Digby was the best at barking, and he let out a howl this Tuesday that you could hear on a Wednesday! Yes! Yes! Winky The Wise Owl needed a break. They told her that no one can help anyone else unless they take care of themselves too. But Winky wondered. Who would give advice when she was on vacation making friends with some goats on a boat?

Peanut Butter Brickle and Digby Pancake said they gave advice too and would be in her town all week. They would happily take over, but they didn’t wink. They could only give their advice in peanut butter cookies and pancakes. They asked her one last question as the line behind them hit longer. Would she let them help? She spun her head around and there it was! The answer with one wink, which meant yes! Yes! Winky The Wise Owl flew away to buy her tickets for the goat ride! And promised she would be back!

Peanut Butter Brickle and Digby Pancake took a break before they even started to get their cookies or pancakes all ready! They had a lot of advice to give! They knew that even if you are the wisest owl like Winky, everyone still needs a break to be their best!

After a week of fun, Winky The Wise Owl flew back to her tree on a Wednesday. She left the busiest day to Brickle and Digby of course!

But they made sure to save her one cookie and one pancake for one last question, and it had to be from Winky. Winky asked Brickle and Digby if they could come back next year for her next vacation. You see, she had already made plans to fly on a plane with some chipmunks. Brickle and Digby barked and she got a cookie! That meant yes, because mysteriously the pancakes were gone.

Winky The Wise Owl learned it’s ok to ask for advice. It’s ok to realize no one has all the answers. And it’s ok to take a break with some goats on a boat.

And Winky The Wise Owl, Peanut Butter Brickle and Digby Pancake winked together happily ever after.
