A very good life

Saying for the Day: If yours as old as you feel then I'm 102.

Well I’m sixty seven years old today.
Looking back over those years I can tell you they have been pretty wonderful.

I had a great childhood with a wonderful (though not perfect) family.

God gave me a wonderful wife to share most of the years with.

I have three wonderful kids and five wonderful grandkids.

God called me to a church with some of the greatest people you could ever meet.

My walk with Christ has filled my life with joy.

Of course there were a few bumps along the way ( mostly caused by my stubbornness , fear of doctors, and inability to take advice)

But over all I have no complaints.
Life is good.

News from Pigeon Falls
I started yesterday introducing you to some of the people who live in Pigeon Falls. The list continues.
Grandma Moris – Caters all Pigeon Falls weddings (or almost all) and has forever. She makes wonderful little cakes.
Dr. John Fortress– Owner of the M&CL railroad ( Moneypit and Cash Loss) A seldom seen individual except when the train breaks down.

Liar’s Club 65 piece band– Local band with three members.
Mrs. Wilson McMorison III – A very rich woman with bad driving habits. She is the first one to see the white rabbit.
Geo Maki-Rich farmer and member of the town council.
Mrs. Horacio Trumble– Has seen the white rabbit and swears it’s the very incarnation of evil. She is driving everybody nuts.
Roger Stir– Insurance man and council member. One of the power centers in Pigeon Falls.

This was a wonderful day. My wife got me a cake with a little train on it. My son, his wife, and two of my grand kids came to visit. The son gave me a new keyboard. My daughter called and wrote an extra nice blog about me (All lies of course). I got a great new engine for the outside layout. WE went out to eat at Fob's. What a wonderful day. Even the church called and wished me a happy birthday. Well I still need a breathing treatment.
God Bless You All
