PUPPETS: Sally & Butch

    SALLY: Say, Butch, what's that you have in your hand? It looks kinda like green peppermint.

    BUTCH: Sally, don't you know nothing? This here stuff is wallpaper.

    SALLY: Wallpaper? Is that so the walls can have something to write on?

    BUTCH: Sally, old girl, listen up and I'll tell you all about wallpaper. You see, Louise was doing some wallpering at her house while Pastor Art is away to the Holy Land.

    SALLY: Why did she wait until Pastor Art wasn't there?

    BUTCH: I don't know. Must be a husband-wife thing. Anyway, the walls she was covering up looked awful. They had cracks and holes and dirty spots and they about made me sick. They were yucky.

    SALLY: Well, how did the wallpaper help?

    BUTCH: Think a minute, Sally. This here wallpaper went on the walls and covered up all those cracks, holes and dirt.

    SALLY: Oh, I see. They are now clean and fresh as new.

    BUTCH: You know, Jesus can do that for us. All we have to do is ask Him into our hearts to be our Lord and Savior and He makes us all clean and fresh again. Just like Louise's walls. But the wonderful thing is that Jesus will keep us clean and fresh forever but Louise is going to have to wallpaper again in a year or so.

    SALLY: Thanks, Butch, for telling me about wallpaper and Jesus. I'm going to go over and think about all that.

    BUTCH: Okay, Sally, see you later. Bye boys and girls.
