Because of Laurie

Saying for the day: A man without a motorcycle is like a woman without shoes.

The other day we were in the dollar store and saw these three motorcycles.

We thought of Laurie , one of our blog friends. She has taught us that everyone who rides a motorcycle is not a hell’s angel. Even those with tattoos.

So in her honor we decided to add them to the layout.

One is pictured in front of Nancy’s coffee shop, one in front of the Methodist church, and one in front of the Masonic Hall.

We think they add a nice touch to the main street.

Thank you Laurie.

WE had three motorcyclists visit Pigeon Falls today. They came in on the milk train with their bikes. Dr. Fortress made special arrangements for them. He said they were vouched for by his old friend Laurie. Two of them went right to Nancy’s for a cup of coffee and couldn’t believe it was still $.50. One of them told Nancy that Mimi , a blogging friend of his, said he had to try the saffron bun and so he did. He thought it was terrific. Nancy said they were so polite that she wishes she could get a few more bikers to stop in for coffee.
No dead pigeons today.
One of the bikers said he saw a big white rabbit in pink sweater as they rode in on the train. It winked and waved at them. There seemed to be a red something just a little behind the rabbit. He thought he was seeing things because of what he had to drink the night before.
Eino is now hoping there is a constitution in the Vanhala house and that was what the intruder was after. He is trying to convince Nancy that the house would be safer if she let him search it but so far Nancy hasn’t swayed.
Farmer John Bergall has offered to take the Kellors dogs while they are on vacation . He said he wouldn’t charge and there was plenty of room for them on the farm. He just felt it would be the Christian thing to do. I think he’s been listening to Pastor marvels sermons.
Dr. Fortress says that the confusion over the legal existence of Pigeon Falls is causing him some problems. There is no one to deal with in terms of right of way, track location, crossing problems. And other things. It is just chaotic.
And the Bishop’s wife still hasn’t shown up and he hasn’t gone to visit her. I’m telling you the local gossips are having an absolute field day.

Another great day. Alex finished the roller coaster and it is ready to put out on the layout. Our amusement park will have two Ferris wheels, three merry go rounds, a child's section, and the roller coaster. In the afternoon Betty took them out to Fortune Lake swimming. I took a nap as I didn't sleep well last night. When they came back we went out for ice cream. Now we are waiting for my son Pat to come. Well I need a breathing treatment.

i love the layout, it's beautiful. can't wait to show the kids when they get back from school. i love the motorcycles and where you placed them. i think it is so wonderful of you and Betty to be incorporating all these things because of your blogging friends. can't wait to see what comes next.

i have a question: your layout is it private or do tourist come to see it? i ask because i think it is so beautiful and well done that 'people' would surely pay to see it.
Those motorcyclists were right to be surprised for the cost of coffee. They are probably use to Starbucks cost. Mimi obviously has been in town before as she knew of the buns. Maybe she is the Bishop's long awaited wife. God Bless farmer John to help out.
I am truly enjoying Pigeons Fall, thank you. I hope your day today is as happy as yesterday or even better. Take care and read you tomorrow.

Hopefully Eino can ward off anymore intruders into the Vanhala house until Nancy lets him in finally.
Pigeon Falls is adorable, I can't wait to see more pictures.

As for your motorcycle visitors, I too have found that they are not bad at all, when you figure the cost of the bike in the first place, they have to be decent people to afford it. Most of the time here, they are doctors and lawyers.

Someone needs to just ask the bishop what the deal with his wife is.

Sure this white bunny thing isnt a promo a store is running? -- You know where they have someone dress up and way at people at the corner? Maybe they got a deal on the suit rental as Easter is over.

Thanks for the points.

Thanks for sending so many folks over to by blog today. I was really surprised my little rant about ol' Ben raised any interest. Love Pigeon Falls and it was nice to honor Laurie that way. She's a sweetie.

I really don't mind motorcycles. In fact I admire the good ones but I have a phobia back riding in a motorcycle.
Thanks for passing by.

Cool motorcycles.
Let's hope there aren't any quarterbacks in pigeon falls who will ride a bike without a helmet.
