Monday September 5
Saying for the Day:Once you can accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something, wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.- Albert Einstein
------ For the farmers of Pigeon Falls Labor Day is not a very important holiday. Their labor doesn't stop and they don't get the day off. The cows have to be fed and milked, the chickens fed and eggs collected, and the potato farmers have begun harvesting their crop. Work goes on even on the first Monday of September. Of course the children are happy they just started school and already they have a day off. A lot of people went down to the county fair. They wanted to see the stock car races and the children looked forward to the carnival rides. Pastor Marvel entered a wall hanging he latch hooked of the Wizard of Oz. He got first place. It was quite a creation. I think they are going to hang it in the Town Hall to remind people that the original yellow brick road was in Pigeon Falls. I am sure that was not Pastor Marvel's intention but he is a good sport and will lend the town the hanging. Pastor Marvel is something of a Wizard of Oz buff. He has collected all kinds of books and things related to Oz. I think making that big wall hanging took his mind off the squabbles in Last Lutheran. Labor Day did him a favor as it caused the council meeting to be postponed until next Monday, and by then people may have calmed down and they will leave the name alone. If they don't we can look to another latch hook original from Pastor Marvel as latchet hooking relieves a lot of stress. Well I'll keep you informed.
----- Sporadic sleep last night, woke up every two hours and I really don't know why. In the morning we finished the inventory of the books to go downstairs and cut a dvd of Pennies graduation to give to her. I spent the afternoon working on the family web sight and the family tree. I really need to get back to the train. Betty has been doing some family research for me through some of the things her mother left and has been cleaning off her desk. We are getting organized. I have to keep saying that in the hope that it is true. Well I need a breathing treatment.
