What you see is what YOU see.
Saying for the Day: One man’s heirloom is another man’s junk.
Thursday we were at the beach in Iron Mountain. I was watching my grand kids swim.
A young lady and her two children entered into that part of the lake where my grandkids were. They were having a wonderful time.
The boy must have been about four and the little girl was about two and a half. They splashed the mother and she splashed them. They laughed and life seemed good.
I thought what a wonderful mother and I remembered when my mother used to take us to camp for a week in the summer. We stayed at my Aunt Jennie’s camp near Iron Mountain. Those were good times.
My memories were interrupted by a man who suddenly confronted my wife and I . It seems he thought the bathing attire of our young mother was a disgrace.
Up to that point I hadn’t noticed. It was a little skimpy.
What you see is part perception. I saw a family having fun. He saw a bad woman who was a disgrace.
Each of us was set up to perceive the same situation in totally different manners.
What we see is not always what is there. Our sight is colored by our prejudices, our memories, our feelings at the moment of seeing.
News from Pigeon Falls-the little town in my backyard. Not much happened in Pigeon Falls today. There were no dead pigeons, maybe that’s over. Nobody saw a white rabbit in a pink sweater. Our bikers are out exploring the countryside. Just a quiet day.
Eino has somebody watching the Vanhala place all the time. Nancy still won’t let them go in and look for a Constitution. She says she will close up the shop tomorrow and she will spend the day looking and Eino can come with her if he wants. Tomorrow the crisis could be over.
Nancy says the Pigeon Falls hermit got this huge heavy package today. It came in by train . He had the delivery men bring it inside and put it down in the living room. Those are the first people to be inside since he moved in.
A Pigeon Days committee has been formed even without the council. Pigeon Days are far too important to the community to let a little thing like a constitutional crisis stop them. The committee will have a hard time beating last years celebration.
The youth group from last Lutheran have done a great job at keeping the town clean. The pigeon statue almost seems to shine. There a few youth grumbling that this is not what church youth groups should be doing.
Todays link is Bobology- remember to put Dr. John in the comment for JC points-You can check your JC points or find out of how little value they are by clicking on the JC point update on the side.
Well My grandkids went home today. First Alex and his dad put the roller coaster out on the layout. It was sad to see them go. I spent the day pulling together all of the Pigeon Falls material from last year so that I could refer to it in this years material. I finished July. Betty and I went to church and then grocery shopping. Discovered an old friend is in the hospital in Marquette with a problem they are having a hard time diagnosing. well I need a breathing treatment.
