Saying for the Day: If it works don't fix it.
Wow. Its Monday already.
We now have two weeks in of the great JC points experiment.
We have visited fourteen blogs and Betty has liked every one of them.
Today’s link comes to us from Catch.
I would be happy to hear from others as to what links you would like us to use as JC points links.
I am also planning a special event which I will tell you more about on Wednesday.
Today we hold the second big drawing for useless stuff.
Two people will end up with “Fun Doctor’s Degrees”.
You can see information on this on Saturday’s blog.
The results of the drawing will be announced tomorrow.
Good luck to all of you. I think we might blindfold Betty this time.
Of course this is not fully fair.
Fair would be to choose only from the ones with the most points.
But fair is not fun.
It is the possibility of being chosen that keeps the system working.
One day though I will hold a drawing limited to the top people on the list.
Diligence must be rewarded.
This drawing will be separate from the regular drawing.
Again, the best of luck to each of you.
I have to go and cut name slips to put in the basket.
News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my backyard. Eino got Mayor South and Bud East and went out to the Bishop’s house, the old Tieminen place. He told Bud that they were interested in buying it. As the real estate agent in charge Bud had the legal right to show them through the place. Once there they noticed a large white box marked important papers –don’t open. Now the right to look at the house does not bring with it the right to go through the Bishop’s boxes. That’s when the accident happened. Eino tripped and fell knocking the cover off the box and spilling its contents. There were piles of constitutions, the duplicate city charter in its frame, and the first quarter 1958 volume of “The Birdseed” with the museum's stamp. Since these were all town property they put them back in the box and took it. At least that’s Eino’s story and he’s sticking to it.
It sure looks like the Bishop is guilty. But what is he guilty of ? The value of everything there doesn’t come to much. As far as taking it to court I’m not sure a judge would accept Eino’s story of how they found it. If the Bishop is guilty he’s getting off.
No dead pigeons today.
Johon Maki, one of the last of the Pigeon Falls World War II veterans was buried today. Lots of people turned out including Willie in his military uniform.. There was a three volley salute and taps. It was very official and very moving. Pastor Marvel preached a great eulogy and everything would have been perfect except that just as the salute began the ground on the edge of the grave left go and Johon Maki III , his grandson, disappeared under the coffin. Somebody shouted “He’s been shot” and for a short time there was chaos. Then the calmer minds took over and they got him out of the grave, unhurt. They finished the ceremony and went back to the church for the regular funeral lunch where the grandson was the center of attention. You never know what’s going to happen in Pigeon Falls.
Bree was there like any tourist taking pictures on the main street (the only street)
Todays link is Letters to Jack. Remember to put Dr. John in the comment. Our thanks to catch for suggesting this link. For your JC points or an explanation of JC points click here. Well I didn't have to cut the slips for the drawing as my granddaughter did it for me. What a great kid. The drawing was held and we will announce the winners tomorrow. Then Betty, Bree, and I went to work on the Crippled Creek river and Mountain. It is really shaping up. Bree does a nice job , just like Alex. Betty and Bree went to Sub Way for lunch. When they came back the real estate called. It seems they had read my blog and wondered if I wanted to sell the house. Since we had planned on going to the office today we said yes and they came and visited . They took pictures and will get back to us tomorrow with what they think we might get for it. Then we gave them a tour of the layout and Esther asked if she could bring her grand kid by to see the train running.
Betty and Bree are building a doll house together as the project of the week. I need a breathing treatment.
