keep you in suspects. Mm. Not many of us rob banks or traffic with the supernatural or commit murder. Yet most of us play our parts in one of the most suspenseful dramas. Man can experience the birth of a baby. That's what our story is about that. And the Hollywood freeway. That swift and terrifying facility built by man. Not for the convenience of men but for the convenience of machines. It's the most heavily traveled road in the world. It knows death intimately almost daily in a moment. Ivy is a lovely name for a girl by Sam Pierce. Hello, this is Gary moore was a parable for you. This isn't going to be one of those shaggy parables of yours like to celebrate. It blew new, is it Gary Durward? I make you no promises. Well, we'll keep our fingers crossed. Well there it goes. Once. There was a hummingbird named Martha. Her mate Sammy had been worrying about feathering their nests. And he said as much Martha, he asked in a tired church, how are we going to go about feathering our nest Martha. A wise hummingbirds, she hummed. Let's use feathers Gary. But this, this isn't such a good idea for people. Besides it tickles the best idea is to feather your nest by systematic saving an improved, higher interest earning United States savings bonds by him through the payroll savings plan or the bond a month plan. And you'll like what happens to your money. Friends? Sound advice from the proprietor of the Garry moore Radio show weekdays on cBS radio. No need to mention that there were no. Mm. Yeah, it wasn't as though this was our first baby Bobby was eight, going on nine. It was just that linda was out of practice and it made her jumpy. We planned this thing, like Eisenhower planned the Normandy landing and yet every hour on the hour linda wanted to run down the checklist. She wasn't so pretty and if I didn't love her so much, I might have gotten a little annoyed as it was. Whoever a little understanding never hurt anyone. I know it's silly tom. But is the car full of gas to the top And you called Marion about coming over and staying with bobby yesterday, the day before yesterday and also today twice and no wonder your sister answers the phone at all. Did you call Dr King today? I called him. I told him you felt fine. You told him. I thought I might have to. I told him you're built in calculating machine. Said tonight was the night he said not to knock it, mothers to be usually have inside information on such things. Please. No jokes. He gave me the phone number where I could reach him if he wasn't at home or at the office. Tom I'm sorry I'm such a nag about this but I just don't want anything to go wrong. I keep reading about people running out of gas on the way to the hospital or losing their way or getting their not being able to find their doctor baby. I know. I just figured I couldn't take it if something like that happened to me I guess I'm not much of a mother. You look you're a wonderful mother. You've done a magnificent job with bobby and you're going to do okay with the new ones. Say where is bobby? If we have to leave in a hurry I don't want to have to start looking all over the neighborhood for him honey. He's just out in the backyard. He isn't climbing the ivy to the garage roof again is he? Tom I've asked him not to play in the I. V. 100 times and he says okay mom and goes right on doing it. I think you ought to speak to him. I mean you're his father linda and listen to me Bobby is an eight year old boy. He's a healthy normal boy with the urge to climb that every kid has had since boys were invented honey. That ivy on the garage is as strong and his face as a rope ladder. He's not going to hurt himself. Could fall and kill himself. He could fall and he's probably bounce right up again. Tom I want you to call him in. I want you tell him not to climb on that ivy anymore. And I mean it's all right honey. I'll call him. Looks like rain out anyway. Yeah. Hey, you know what? I just had a great thought. If the new one's a girl, maybe you should call it ivy. Yeah, ivy Peterson. It's a pretty name. It's a horrible name and I don't think you're funny. I don't think you're funny at all baby. Come on now. I was only kidding. All right. I'll go out and get bobby. Fuck bobby. Hi pop. Where are you son up here on the garage now. Come on down. You're not supposed to play in the garage roof. Okay. What? I'll show you how I can flag down the idea. Yeah. Okay. You better hurry up. It's starting to ring. I can do it in the rain pop. I've done it. What? Take it easy now. Your mom doesn't like you're climbing things. What? I can cry right down like a lateral. Most say I'm down. How's that pop? That's great fun. Only your mom doesn't want you to do it. You might lose your grip and fall and you could get very badly hurt. You wouldn't want that son, would you? I sell lots of times and I didn't even hurt myself at all. I can cry me here. Well now before we go in I want you to listen very carefully. I don't want you to mention the ivy or the garage to your mother. Okay. Oh now look, I'm serious about this. Your mom's a little, well she's not exactly herself. She's nervous. She worries about little things because well, because because he's going to have a baby. Isn't that right pop? Yeah, that's right. I couldn't have put it better myself. I sure hope it isn't a girl. What's wrong with girls? Oh they cry all the time and they dress in dresses and they can't climb or anything. Well your mother wants a girl and I'd kind of like one myself your enough boy for one family now. Come on in the house. It's really beginning to rain. Yeah. Uh We're here linda. Uh Please hurry. What is it baby tom? I think you'd better call dr King. I think it's time to go. Okay. Okay I'll call him right now. Look bobby. You can help you go in your mother's room and get her overnight bag. It's at the foot of the bed. Okay? Pop you better call Marion. Yeah. Now take it easy sweetie. I'll call her first. I've got to call the doc then I'll call your sister. Let's see it. It's almost dark. If we can get out of here and say 15 minutes we should get to the hospital by. Hello? Hello. Is dr King there? Oh if you doc. Well this is tom Peterson and linda. My wife. Yeah linda y'all. Well she's fine but she's going to have the baby and Yeah. Yeah. Well she thinks we better go pretty soon doc. She says tell him now tom please tell him now. She says now doc. Yeah.
