News from Pigeon Falls– Well yesterday’s announcement has the town in shock. There is nothing quite like being told you may not exist.
It seems the town has no Charter and no constitution . All the town acts for who knows how long may be null and void.
There is now no town clerk. That means nobody to hire the part time people who clean the streets, maintain the fire station, keep the peace, process wedding licenses, or issue checks to pay bills.
There is some resentment building toward the Bishop who started all this with his request for tax information. According to Nancy there is even a rumor that the Bishop stole the Charter and the Constitution.
Over at the Fly Inn and Tavern one of the drunks was heard to mutter that they should go after the Bishop with a shovel instead of the poor pigeons. At least they had enough sense to ignore him.
Speaking of pigeons another one was killed yesterday. This one was shot with an arrow. Its poor little body was found in the same parking place as all the others ( two spaces up from the bar). Eino thinks they are being killed somewhere else and dumped there. One wonders if the killer is working on a book like "100 ways to kill a pigeon".
On a somewhat lighter note the white rabbit was seen by another tourist. He swears it winked and waved. He had never seen a three foot rabbit in a pink sweater before..
One last tidbit from Nancy. It seems a cute young blond showed up on the milk train this morning and asked directions to the Bishop’s house. I can hardly wait to hear the gossip this will generate.
Well I finished another trestle for the outside layout. I think this will be the last one. Betty went to Tops. Then she visited a couple celebrating fifty years of marriage. She painted the trestles. She is working on her flowers. I think tomorrow we will tackle the leaking waterfall. Well I need a breathing treatment.
