Sunday July17

Saying for the day:Matthew 28:19 Therefore go, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
.......For a little while today the good people of Pigeon Falls were afraid their big celebration would be canceled. It started raining at about noon and came down in buckets. Lori Linna who had come in on a special passenger car attached to the morning milk train got to see a lot of Wink's Woods Shopping Center while she waited for the rain to stop. She has become something of a celebrity and everyone wanted to talk to her so the time went by fast. At about 1:30 the rain suddenly stopped and the sun came out. By 2:00 it was beautiful and the celebration started on time. The rain had done everyone a real favor because it cooled everything down and it would be another couple of hours before the temperature went back up to 90. Pastor Marvel gave a very short opening prayer, and then Mayor South, who loves celebrations, got to speak. In answer to just about everyone's prayer she did not read the Pigeon story but encouraged everyone to read it themselves on the base of the statue. The Liar's Club 65 piece band, which has three members, then played two nostalgic numbers and the official pigeon song. O Pigeon, O Pigeon come and help us now". Then the Great and Exalted, High and Wonderful, Grand Pigeon read a poem entitled "God Made Pigeons". The program closed with another short prayer by Pastor Marvel who remembered to ask God's blessings on the pigeons. the things small town pastors end up doing could fill a book. After the program Lori Linna bought some pasties from the Methodist ladies to take home to Peter who hasn't had a good pasty since he left Pigeon Falls. She also promised to send Mayor South, by E-mail, copies of the pictures she took of the celebration. Mayor South can print them out and share them with the community. Everyone agreed that the new statue was even better than the one that was destroyed by the storm.
Well I'll keep you informed of what happening in Pigeon Falls.
Bumpy night last night , only slept two hours At a time. This morning Betty went to help at the Church, she had to serve coffee after a baptism. She soon came home to get our camera because the church camera had a dead battery. She ended up serving coffee and taking pictures. I moved the last two cabinets out to the garage. Built a stand for the deer chaser. Painted the substructure for the train layout, put away all the tools in the garage. Then I put together the cabinet to go in the kitchen except for the doors. Betty came home and we went to Iron Mountain. I drove for the first time in three years. I had to find out if I could drive on Thursday after Betty has her tests at the hospital. I can. We ate at the Ranch. Then we went to Wal-Mart. I got some sweaters and a pair of pants. We got some fabric to make the banner for the model railroad layout. We bought two houses, a fruit stand , and a tree house in the toy section. Compared to what we would pay for houses like them made for Garden Railroads they were a steel. We will have to repaint them and remove a few things but they will work perfectly. We also bought some doweling and little wooden knobs to make street lights. we finished shopping by buying some paint. On the way home I thought about the Bishop's sermon last night. Tom is such a good preacher and he knows the Good News as well as anybody can. When I got home I created transfers for the banners and for a shirt. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Wow, I am so happy for you that you could drive as I know how it is to depend on someone else to drive.

I felt like a celebrity in the train car behind the milk car and at Winks. Rumor has it that I may be asked to be in the parade next year, but I must politely decline as I have a fear of giant pigeons due to an early childhood "mishap" which I cannot bear to and never will discuss as it may hurt the feelings of the town folks and they have been so good to me. Tell the church ladies Pete loved the pasties and we may both come to see the celebrity whose last name starts with "M".

Pete has not had a good pasty since leaving pigeon falls. Except the small ones made by his aunt.

Glad to see you get back in the saddle. And you pick Iron Mountain of all places to go. Some of the craziest drivers are from the mountain.Glad to see you made it safe.

Wow things change and then they stay the same. It is good to have another driver in the family. I too sampled some of the pasties and they were delicious. Peter did not know as I sent in my secret agent Luke to get me a bite.

Hey through to Grandmother's house we go the car doesn't know the way so you must drive. Okay that didn't work.

Love
Pennie
