Saying for the Day:1) God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts.
-------- The white rabbit hasn't been seen for a few days now and white rabbit talk is dying down. Tommy, the undertakers kid, wrote a story for his English class entitled "Look out for the White Rabbit". The story is as follows. " Once there was a young couple that met an old Norwegian man who need some help. Because they were a nice couple they did everything they could to help him. The old man said to them I have nothing to give you but this white rabbit but it is a very special white rabbit. It will learn rapidly what you want and it will always obey you. There is only one problem, the old man said, don't ever feed it carrots. Don't under any circumstances feed it carrots. Well they thanked the old man and took the rabbit home. It was a smart as the old man said and soon had become a wonderful pet . They were very careful not to feed it carrots. But a neighbor boy saw the white rabbit and he brought a carrot with him and fed it the carrot. There was blinding flash of light and where there had been one cute white bunny there were now ten larger pink rabbits. But these were not nice rabbits. They bit people and chased dogs. People tried to kill them but if you shot it or stabbed it or did anything to it , it multiplied. Soon the town was full of nasty pink rabbits. Nobody knew what to do. Old Mrs. Trunkle was at home eating a hardboiled egg when one of the pink rabbits broke through her screen door. She was so frightened that she threw the salt shaker she was using on the egg at the rabbit. There was a poof of smoke as the salt hit the rabbit and it disappeared. Mrs. Trunkle picked up the salt shaker and went rabbit hunting. Soon everyone knew how to get rid of the bad rabbits and before long there were none left in town. At least there were none visible in the town. They gave Mrs. Trunkle the good citizen award and a bright gold medal. The end." Tommy's teacher said it reads an awful lot like the plot of the movie "Gremlins" but it still showed a lot of creativity. Well I'll keep you informed.
----- Good night last night. Betty got up at five this morning and took out the garbage. In the morning we opened some of the boxes that came with Christmas gifts we ordered. Then we went to Iron River to shop. We went to Pamiada which has very bad aisles for people with a walker and lacks organization . I don't think we will shop there again. Coming home I started running a train and ran it from 1:30 until 7:00. While the train was running Betty and I worked in the garage getting things ready for Saturday when the Pigeon Falls town goes back on the shelf. When the main table was cleared we called it a day and Betty went back to working on Berea' s costume. I downloaded the church information and began doing the October web page.
I am having a lot of problems with my computer. Betty went to Bible study and I need a breathing treatment that will have to wait until she comes home.
