Saying for the day: Some people see things that are and ask, Why? Some people dream of things that never were and ask, Why not? Some people have to go to work and don't have time for all that:George Carlin
The big news in Pigeon Falls today is the upcoming wedding of Nancy Jupola , daughter of Eino Jupola, to Henry Johnson, head mechanic for the M&LC railroad (Moneypit & Lost Cash). Toivo had a limousine brought in by train for the occasion. Of course they don't really need a limo since its only two miles from the church to the Masonic Hall where the reception will be held. Uncle Toivo is some high order Mason and insisted it be held there and then of course Nancy was once a Job's Daughter's Queen. The reception will be catered by Grandma Moris (It was her or the cute little Methodist pasties) who has been catering weddings in Pigeon Falls forever. Everyone knows there will be ham and buns, some kind of beef, sticky spaghetti, Jell-O salads, and some of those wonderful little cakes that only grandma Moris makes. She used to have chicken as well but she says she is too old to chase them down, kill them, and go through all the trouble of removing the feathers. Music will be provided by the "Out of Harmony Six" a wonderful little group that Toivo is bringing in by train. I am sure you have heard of them. They had that big hit song " Chicken Soup Marriage" . The lyrics go something like : " Chicken soup marriage, chicken soup marriage, you'll never get sick if you have a chicken soup marriage." Well Ill keep you informed as to what' happening in Pigeon Falls.
.....A good night last night, didn't wake up till 6:02. Our new Hilton Card was delivered today so Betty has a credit card again. They spelled her name right this time. I went to work on a sample bent for a trestle and Betty gave it her Ok before she went to Tops. The Tops group ate at a new restaurant that opened just beyond Memory Lane. UPS brought my new power pack for the train and I worked at getting it ready to install. When Betty came home we began revising the train control area. We put in new cabinets and the new transformer. There are no wires hanging in the front and it looks good. We won't know until tomorrow if it works. Dawn called and is bringing some more rocks in the morning. we really need them. We took a quick trip to Slivensky's to get electrical tape, boards, and nails. Betty painted the board were going to try under the switch track. I called and made a reservation for Saturday at the Hampton Inn in Green Bay , and made a reservation for Patrick and boys, at Carol Stream, for the end of the month trip.Well I need a breathing treatment.
