It seems to stand all alone and nobody was in front of or behind it. It just continues as a mystery.

Everybody clapped and he gave the accordion back to Towner. He knows when to quit. Somebody noticed that the good Pastor didn't dance and asked him if it was against his religion. He said, "No, I just have preachers feet and they don't dance well." Towner , by the way, did a fine job with Pastor Marvel's accordion.
The good people of Pigeon Falls are taking up a fund to send to help the people in New Orleans. They are receiving funds at the local credit union. Well I'll keep you informed.
-----Good night last night for me but Betty got a leg cramp in the middle of the night and had to get up and walk it off in the morning we put together the first of the new shelves.

Coming home Betty went back to work on the banners and I worked on the family web page which will take me until Christmas to get done. Well I
