The head in the freezer!!
Saying for the Day: Someday your car and your refigerator will talk to you.
I need a new refrigerator–freezer.
There is nothing really wrong with mine .
It keeps food cool and frozen foods frozen ( except when I forget to close the freezer drawer all the way).
The problem is it has no talking head.
That’s the latest thing. I saw it on television.
You open the freezer drawer and there is a head there that asks what kind of ice cream you want. It even knows your name.
What a wonderful idea.
If I had one of those when Betty goes off to one of her many meetings and I am all alone I could open my freezer and talk to the head ( the head is kind of pretty).
It even worries about your food.
When the door is open too long a hand comes out and closes it.
No more thawed ice cream running over everything.
I really want one of those refrigerator-freezers.
I went to my appliance shop.
You know the one that wouldn’t sell me one of those new microwaves that transport people with violins to play at your dinner( I saw it on television.)
I told them what I wanted. They laughed at me and escorted me, kindly, out of the store.( Don’t they ever watch television?)
So I went to American of Marquette.
They have all kinds of wonderful gadgets.
I started on one end of the refrigerator-freezer section and looked in freezers.
I was half way through when the clerk came.
He asked what I wanted in the device and I told him. He said he had to check with his associate.
I saw him over there but one of them must have told a joke they were laughing so hard.
He came back and explained to me that the head comes with the ice cream and not the freezer.
I am so glad he told me that . I could have made such a fool of myself.
Now if I could only remember the kind of Ice Cream.
News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my backyard-Mayor South stopped Eino after church this morning. She told him that people wanted the Bishop’s house searched but there was no way to get a warrant. Once the men load everything up it will be too late. We still don’t know where all the missing copies of the constitution went, or the duplicate charter that hung on the town hall wall, or the first volume of the 1958 “Birdseed” that was stolen from the museum . Eino said we’ll search the house tomorrow , without a warrant but legally. How in the world is he going to pull that off?
Another dead pigeon today. It looks like this one had his head cut off with a chain saw. It was dumped at the usual place, apparently while people were in church. The guy that watches for Eino is a good Methodist.
Pastor Marvel was a bit hard on the congregation today. He told them they could have tried harder to make the Bishop feel welcome. The mark of the Christian Congregation is how they love one another not how they talk about one another. Over coffee between the services Amelia ( the church treasurer) let slip that the Bishop while he was here had given over $400 to Last Lutheran. That made him one of the best givers in the congregation. Now people really feel bad.
Poor Robert sat all day today in his taxi and not one single person needed a ride. Tourist season can’t come too soon for Robert.
Our bikers are back (just when Eino was going to send out a search party. They had a great time and said the scenery was magnificent. All three of them had coffee at Nancy’s before stopping over to the Fly Inn. Usually you go to the Fly Inn first and then when you really need it to Nancy’s for coffee.
Bree Linna came today but she was busy with Gram and Gramp so her detective work will have to wait until tomorrow.
Tommy and his red wagon with the big box seem to be everywhere these days. Eino thinks Tommy is up to something but then he usually is.
Wille (our town drunk) is getting ready for the numerous parades that take place in Pigeon Falls every summer. Willie likes to march in the parades. Willies is a Viet Name veteran and always wears his uniform. Every year the head of the local VFW pays to have it cleaned and pressed.
Today's link. Newfie Girl-Please remember to type Dr. John in your comments to get JC points. It was one of those good days of which there are far two few. We started by talking to my daughter and deciding to put our house up for sale. We are now looking at duplexes. Pennie would have one side and we would have the other. then my son Pete, his wife Lori , my grandaughter Bree, and my grandson Luke arrived. We spent a gtreat day with them including dinner at Fob's. Peter got my timer working to control the running of the train in the living room. They looked at the progress on the outside layout and were quiet happy with it. They left Bree with us for the week. She did her blog from here. Well I need a breathing treatment.
