 “From the Chicken Coop”™ Grandpa

Page 1 of 2

Grandpa said, many years ago my great grandfather and grandmother had a small farm with chickens. One night, as was Grandpa’s custom when he slept over at our home he would tell me stories at bedtime. This night he told me this story of a Rooster and the Chicken Coop.

It seemed my Grandpa was visiting them when he was young and one morning my Great Grandfather sent Grandpa out to the chicken coop to collect fresh eggs for breakfast. When Grandpa didn’t return after a long time my Great grandfather became concerned and went out to look for him. When he came close to the chicken coop, my Grandpa jumped with joy, but my Great Grandfather saw tears in my Grandpa’s eyes and noticed that he was locked in an adjacent empty chicken coop, which could be entered only through the same door as the occupied coop. This seemed strange.

When he noticed Grandpa’s distress he asked, “What was wrong?” Grandpa told him tearfully, “that nasty rooster, who was now quiet, in his grandfather's presence, came pecking after him and all the hens started cackling, which scared my Grandpa so he ran into the next coop and locked himself in for safety. ”My Great Grandfather could see Grandpa was really upset so he took him by the hand and they walked right by the now quiet nasty rooster and comfortable nesting hens.

As they sat under the apple tree, my Great Grandfather told my Grandpa the following story. "Did you notice how that rooster and hens behaved when I came in? Totally different than when you first came in." My Grandpa then shouted, “The rooster and hens seemed to pounce on me.”

My Great Grandfather then told him, "That’s a new rooster the neighbor gave me. All your life you are going to come across people who will act like that rooster and hens. Only in different ways! It’s natural for that rooster to protect his coop and his hens. The rooster is the leader and the hen’s followers. Same with people! It doesn’t matter whether they are men or women. There will always be people who will try to lead your life and if you let them, you will become like the hens."

"But to be the leader, you have to first be able to lead your own life and be the rooster of your thoughts and actions. You can be like the rooster leading the hens, only they will be people. Most of us in life are followers, like the hens and some stay hidden in their own chicken coops, like you did."

"That doesn’t mean that the rooster in us is bad or nasty, like the one you just experienced, that’s just the way some people naturally are, at least in their own minds. But did you notice the respect and the way he quieted down when I came in? He saw me in his perception, as a bigger, stronger and probably smarter rooster than he is. Which I am and so are you.

“From the Chicken Coop”™ Grandpa is a Giggle

Page 2 of 2

But you didn’t think or believe it strong enough for him to perceive it. Next time before you walk in, believe that the rooster is just a tiny, sweet chirping chick, and those hens are laying beautiful golden eggs, that we can have for breakfast."

Then he did the smartest move and took my Grandpa back to the chicken coop, walked away and said "now go in and pick those golden eggs for breakfast." Strange, he later told my Great Grandfather, even while he was still scared my Grandpa boldly walked into the chicken coop, ignored the rooster and picked up the golden eggs for breakfast.

As they ate breakfast, my Great Grandpa chuckled "don’t you ever forget," as he whimsically smiled at my Great Grandmother, "that you will always meet the roosters and hens in your life. But it’s the rooster in you and all of us that separates you from the he and she hens! And will keep you “From the Chicken Coop”™.

My Grandfather then whispered, as he gave me a hug and kiss, that many of us lock ourselves in our own Chicken Coops, like my Grandpa did and if we’re not careful with what we think, say and do, then we may let others lock us in a Chicken Coop of their choosing. I would then doze off into a peaceful sleep.

The Adventures of Shimbu, Swift Eagle and Wild Rice

Page 1 of 2

Since we had a delicious rice dinner Grandpa remembered a story about Shimbu. One day Shimbu was out with his mother to go pick wild rice out by the lake. The rice was now ripe for harvesting. To pick the wild rice they had a go on a little bamboo raft. In the lake you had to be very careful because it had alligators, snakes and all kinds of wild animals that would come down to the water from out of the jungle to drink at the lake.  But this is the way life is in the jungle. Shimbu’s father, brother and sister, were working out in the farm where they raised all kinds of vegetables. So the father wasn’t with them this day. Don’t forget there are many other wild animals in the jungle like lions, tigers, snakes, wild boa and all kinds of animals.

This was a beautiful day and Shimbu and his mother found the little raft which they used and with some long poles just pushed themselves out into the wild rice Paddy.  The water wasn't very deep but deep enough for alligators and snakes to be in.  The way they picked the rice is to shake it from the top of the plant into little bamboo buckets.  They were having a wonderful time because the rice was abundant and it will make a delicious meal for the family.

Shimbu and his mother were very happy because of the abundance of rice and thinking of the wonderful dinner. While they were laughing picking the rice from on top of the raft they felt a little bump under the raft.  They thought it was just a clump of grass.  Soon the end of the raft was lifted up about three inches off of the water and now they got scared because it was an alligator trying to over turn the raft.  Shimbu quickly took the pole that they used to push them around on the raft and hit the alligator right on the nose.  Meanwhile Shimbu’s mother took the other pole and started pushing them back to the shore quickly which was not very far but the alligator was trying to smash the raft with his tail so they could fall into the water.

Shimbu and his mother were very frightened and kept hitting the alligator with the tiny poles. Just as they thought that the alligator was going to tip the raft over, out of the sky came Swift Eagle.  Swift Eagle was a old friend of Shimbu, because Shimbu had found one of her little chicks on the ground, which fell out of the nest and took it home to feed and save it’s life. Otherwise a wild animal would have eaten it. Swift Eagle saw Shimbu pick the little Eagle up and take it home to feed it. Shimbu didn’t know where the chick came from. It was getting dark when Shimbu found it. But a few days he took the chick back to the spot where he had found the little eagle and there way up on the tree was a nest, which he couldn’t see before. So Shimbu put the little eagle on a big leaf in the open space so the mother could see it. The Mother, Swift Eagle had two other little chicks, but missed the little lost eagle. Swift Eagle was so happy to see the little chick, she flew down quickly and picked it with her claws and flew back to the nest. Shimbu waved to the mother and she flapped her wings to show how happy she was. Swift Eagle never forgot that Shimbu saved her little chick. That’s how Shimbu and Swift Eagle became good friends.

Swift Eagle came diving screeching out loud, diverted the alligator and quickly pecked the alligator’s eye.  The alligator became furious and started splashing, thrashing and trying to hit the raft that Shimbu and his mother was on.  But Swift Eagle came diving down again and pecked the other eye of that nasty alligator so that the alligator couldn't temporarily see.  In the meanwhile Shimbu and his mother used the poles and quickly pushed themselves on to the shore.

Page 2 of 2

Shimbu and his mother looked up into the sky and there was Swift Eagle flying with three other small Eagles, one of them was the one Shimbu had saved.  The old mean alligator, who could now see, opened his big jaws, as if to say that I'll get you the next time.  So Shimbu and his mother waved to Swift Eagle and the little Eagles and he and his mother packed the wonderful wild rice, which they shared, with the whole family for delicious meal that night.

Grandpa has many tales about Shimbu and Swift Eagle, which he will tell me at bedtime.

Grandpa, Grandma, My Mother & The Growing up Fairy

I Wish I knew Dr. Erickson. The Master of Paradox. I don’t know what it means!

Most people can’t understand themselves?  That’s the challenge and the fun part of being human!

Webster defines Paradox: A statement that is apparently absurd or self-contradictory,

but is or may be really true. A person who’s puzzlingly inconsistent.

My grandpa comes up with funny things I don’t understand. But it seems my mother was kind of naughty when she was 8 years old so Dr. Erickson wrote this letter on her 8th birthday. It was a very special kind of letter only for my mother from the Growing Up Fairy. (Printed with permission)

Hi de Do Heidi!

I'd like to come to your birthday party but I just can't.  I hate that word can't and I can't help hating it.  

I guess I didn't describe myself very well so I will do it again. I am a licensed Growing Up Fairy and my job is to make sure you grow up to be the right kind of a beautiful young lady. 

Now I have 4 eyes, one in the front of my head, one on each side and one in the back of my head.  Of course I have an extra eye on top of my head just in case I need it.  I can see in all directions and in the nighttime too.  I can see around corners through walls, well just nothing can stop me seeing everything that goes on that is naughty behavior.  Of course I always keep what I know a secret.  But I always tell my little girl about it so she can correct the mischief.  Of course if she can't correct the mischief she can always tell her father that The Growing Up Fairy wants him to do a certain thing and he has to do it without asking why.  Of course if a little girl tries to get something by telling her father to get something when The Growing Up Fairy didn't have anything to do with, well, my goodness she would be in a heap of trouble.  The Growing Up Fairy can only be used the right way.  Some little girls actually try to use The Growing Up Fairy. The wrong way and oh the trouble they get into.  It's awful.

As for the ears I've got them on my head on my shoulders, my sides my back and on my tail.  They are pretty ears and hear everything.  It's a good thing Growing Up Fairys keep secrets.  I got 4 front feet, one on the right side and three on my left side.  I write with my middle left foot which makes me a south paw. 

Of course I have 7 hind feet but I only wear shoes on two of them. You see I like to go barefoot.

I just got back from a big meeting of Growing Up Fairys for 7year old girls going to be 8.  We agreed that the worst problems for 7 year old girls is telling little lies and taking things that belong to other people.  But we also agreed to that by the time the 7 year old gets to be 8 years old she quits that foolishness.  So now you know what to do with those smoked glasses from camp and some other little things you hid in your room.  Good thing I keep secrets.  What I forget you remember and that is the good too.

Wish I could be at your birthday party but I just can't.

Your Growing Up Fairy

Dr. Milton Erickson  was a dear friend of the Borgeas family and the world’s leading authority Dr. Erickson was a Medical Hypnosis and the originator of Neurolinguistics.

Grandpa’s Secrets of the David Letterman Show

“To desire is to obtain; to aspire is to achieve.” James Allen
Grandpa on some pointers from creative, innovative, fun and loving people.
Are they easy to recognize and apply? Not always!

·        What molds your thoughts and stimulates your creativity, whether is it is for changing your attitudes, laughing and humor, love or just about anything? If you believe it or you don’t, somebody said you are right!

·        How do you feel when you wake up in the morning? Is there a specific outlook, an interesting subject or project? What kind of excitement do you look forward to?
Don’t be afraid to dream.

·        Have you ever thought of improving your work, including instilling new innovations to make even the most mundane better for your own enjoyment? Don’t be afraid of changes and challenges.

·        Continuous complexity of any task is the only way to keep stimulating your interest and enjoyment.  What thoughts do you constantly give to managing your time, moods and energy levels? Always remember thoughts are real things.

·        If you find a great dislike for what you are presently doing and haven’t found your true love, don’t continue cheating your life, start moving forward doing what you love! Don’t be afraid of switching to things that may seem strange. But always remember to never do bad or illegal things. And never try drugs.

·        What is your spiritual, meditative and relaxation schedule? Always believe in God and have faith. Respect everybody’s faith. “When fear comes knocking at your door,
send Faith to Answer.

 “I am absolutely convinced that creativity is not solely a brain function but a social function as well, “ he explains. “What’s at issue is how something is received in the culture. One of the key things that I think about innovation in modern art is that in order for innovation to survive and be valued it has to have the power to mean different things to different people and to set up very different and often conflicting agendas.” MacArthur Fellow J. Kirk T. Varnedoe* (Uncommon Genius, Denise Shekerjian)

The Letterman Show. Grandpa says be careful of your dreams. They can happen!
You have to first see yourself there, if you are to be there!

Page 2 of 4
Grandpa’s journey into being on the Letterman show started when a local television station heard about his celebrity shoe collection.  They called and asked him what was involved, how he got the shoes, which stories are related to the shoes and how he tells this message over to the youngsters in the volunteer school program that he shares.

What Grandpa never told anybody, because David Letterman was his favorite talk show, how he often pictured himself being on the show. Can you really dream yourself into it happening, long before it does? You bet you can and make it a reality. He hopes that I understand the same thing. Grandpa says he stresses this point in all his books. 

Grandpa didn't think anything more about the phone interview. However the next thing he finds is he had television cameras; crew and he and everybody was having an incredibly good time with all this activity at the office.  It was interesting how Grandpa sat there in front of the television cameras explaining the life adventures of the people who had worn these shoes.  As they continued the interview it became real exciting and they kept him narrating a number of these fascinating stories behind each person.  Apparently they liked what they heard and so they produced a full program for audience viewing.  Grandpa even played a bagpipe tune as an introduction, which further added to the interest of the television program. 

The television show was received with great enthusiasm and from that local production, it led to other national television programs.  So be careful of what you dream. Subsequently some of the tabloids came over and they had some interesting articles. One of the tabloids included photos of Grandpa buried in shoes.  This was getting to be very exciting as local magazines produced some good articles.  The next thing Grandpa hears is a call from the Letterman show. Can you imagine how exciting it must have been?

The Letterman show informed him that he would be on a program with Sonny and Cher.  Since they are some of favorite performers he was really anxious.  Even on his departure for New York the local television stations still produced an interesting, packing and getting ready program for his infamous flight.  When Grandpa arrived in New York City on Thursday night, there was a limousine waiting for him. He was supposed to appear on Friday with Sonny and Cher.

The Letterman Show. Grandpa says be careful of your dreams. They can happen!
You have to first see yourself there, if you are to be there!

Page 3 of 4
The show is produced during the day and then shown late at night in New York City and other times throughout the country.  Imagine the excitement he had at the studio. There is a staff of 50 people on the Letterman show.  They were very considerate, congenial and professional.  He was ready for rehearsals and had his production all set up for the evening program.  Sonny, Cher, Mary and Chastity were all in what's known as the green room.  This is where everybody assembled before the show and next door to the artistic makeup room. It was a marvelous experience being in the same room with these famous people who were always my favorites.  They chatted as if it were a social gathering, which it was.  Grandpa met Cher’s personal trainer, her manager, as well as her secretary. Her trainer later invited him over to an exclusive fabulous gym in Soho.  

Sometimes things change quickly. He was informed that if Sonny and Cher performed as a professional team then Grandpa would be standby only.  Since they didn't know what type of reaction each would have, when they both got onstage. There was some question that they may have personality conflicts.  But, both were superb and the show went on beautifully and smoothly. Grandpa was offered the choice of flying back to Phoenix and returning next week.  Since the travel time didn't appeal to him, he offered to remain over the weekend in New York City. After all he was very comfortable at the Omni Berkshire Hotel. Can you imagine Grandpa in New York? He had a marvelous time.  Visiting museums, walking the streets of New York, Greenwich Village, the waterfront and so many other fascinating places to visit in New York City. This was the time he even visited Borough Park.

Fun times on different days. Monday, he reported to the office as scheduled and was informed that he would be on that evening.  Two hours before the show he was asked if he wouldn't mind relinquishing his spot because Christopher Reeves who was available at the last minute.  Grandpa graciously consented and remained on the studio site during the entire production.  This was in it self was a marvelous adventure.  

More fun times. Tuesday, He reported as scheduled and they informed him everything is an order and he would be on that evening.  Two hours again before the show, Red Fox became available as a last-minute interview. Don’t forget Grandpa was not a celebrity. He was again requested if he would relinquish his spot for Red Fox.  He again graciously consented.  Meanwhile he was learning all about the production of the show since he was now known and back in the studio helping the staff.  During the day they would invite him for lunch and treated Grandpa with considerable friendliness, just as they did with celebrities. Boy it must have been loads of fun.  In the meantime he am still a guest at the Omni Berkshire Hotel.  Apparently all the celebrities stay there as guests of the network. He had an interesting conversation with Robert Mitchum and Greg Allman.  Coincidentally Greg Altman was Cher’s former husband.

Grandpa the celebrity. Wednesday, He reported as usual for scheduling.  And was sheepishly asked if he could again delay his spot, this time for, he thinks it was for Vicky Carr, another of Grandpa’s favorite performers. Instead of being in the studio, this evening he was a member of the audience.

Grandpa the Celebrity. David Letterman specifically acknowledged him by having him stand up, and identified Grandpa as their “Kidnapped guest.”  Celebrities do not have time to sit about studios or hotels, the way he did.  They liked Grandpa being available as he was very flexible, cooperative and didn't have a tight schedule.  

More excitement. Thursday, as usual, when he reported to the office, they informed him that he would be on that evening with Carlie Simon and Hunter Thompson.  Carlie Simon is another of Grandpa’s special performers so you can imagine how excited he was. There was one stipulation however for this evening's live program was at another location. Carlie Simon does not perform in public.  She has some type of phobia in front of a big live audience.  This production was scheduled at the Helen Hayes suite at the Times Square hotel. Imagine the considerable effort and expense moving all the equipment, cameras and staff to the hotel.  An enormous production undertaking by any standard. Needless to say Grandpa was happy to comply with all their wishes.

The evening of the show, they informed Grandpa, five minutes before show time that Hunter Thompson had not shown up.  Therefore his portion of the show was to be extended to cover the missing Hunter Thompson’s time slot as well.  Grandpa was happy to comply as he was prepared for any extended programming.  The last minute before production time, Hunter Thompson showed up. At first they were disturbed by his delay and were considering not having him on the show at all, since Grandpa was prepared to fill his position but changed their mind. This production started with all three of them, Carlie Simon, Hunter Thompson and Grandpa all locked up in a closet.  In the closet Hunter Thompson remarked he didn't feel well. Probably because he had too much to drink and Carlie Simon stated she has some claustrophobia.  Who wouldn’t in a dinky closet. Grandpa, being the optimist, replied just think of us as being happy friends and imagine that we were all outdoors and looking over a beautiful lake.  This apparently had a positive effect because after a few minutes they relaxed and there was David Letterman, greeting his hiding guests.  

Continuing with the show we were sitting around a coffee table in very, very cramped quarters.  This tiny room included cameras, crew, the band and furniture.  Carlie Simon sang a most beautiful song, and because he was such a great admirer of her it was a thrilling experience. Grandpa’s portion of the show was to explain some of the shoes, conditions that can be recognized on the bottom of the soles of the shoes, and brief story regarding the people who owned the shoes. Apparently it went off very well. This entire experience was like being in Fairyland.  

He had the pleasure of meeting many other celebrities, not only at the studio but also at the hotel.  It was truly a memorable holiday.  This adventure on the Letterman Shoe was like a vision, which one envisions coming into actuality. He often envisioned of being on such an exciting program. Let your imagination run wild and visualize those wonderful fantasies, we rarely share with anybody. So Grandpa believes you can dream your dreams to become true.
