Out go the memories
Saying for the day: The day is coming when your memories will be all you have.
We are going through the agony of getting ready to move to a smaller house.
Over the years we have saved a lot of things that were not of any real use but they were filled with memories.
WE kept them because when we would hold them or look at them the event would come flooding back and we could relive something that was important.
But to hold on to memories like that you have to have room and we won’t have it in the new house.
So some of our memories have to go to the garbage and some to rummage.
Here is a rocking horse I had as a child, my kids rode on it, my grandkids rode it.
But it is old and it takes up space and all my children have rocking horses that they can pass along.
So we have to give it up. Hi Ho Silver away.
Here is a toy farm.
It has animals and a tractor and a big red barn.
My kids played with it and even broke some pieces that are long gone.
My grandkids played with it when they visited.
But they all have toy farms of their own now.
It has to go . Good by Bossie.
Here is a little , badly built, end table (sort of) .
I built it in wood shop for my mother. She pretended to love it.
It is not worth anything.
It doesn’t fit in anywhere.
It has to go.
Well I only got a c+ on it anyway.
Here is my old fishing hat but I don’t fish anymore.
In the garbage it goes and with it all my fish stories.
I could go on and on but its just too sad.
Its part of the angst of moving.
It has to be.
News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my backyard– The rehearsal dinner from last night will not soon be forgotten. Bof’s went all out and served family style. They even hired a couple of waiters and put them in fancy clothes. Every bit of food was carried out on covered platters. Then the waiter brought in a huge platter and put it in the middle of the table. “The chicken is served”, he announced. He lifted the lid and a live chicken jumped out. People screamed and the bride looked like she was going to cry. That’s when Jonathan grabbed the chicken put the cover back over it and said “ Take this back to the cook it’s a bit underdone” . Everybody broke up laughing as the waiter left with the chicken. It seems the former team mates of Jonathan had set up this little trick but Jonathan took the wind out of their sales. The real chicken platter followed and everything went very well. What will they try next.
The White Rabbit returned yesterday . It was seen at the railroad station and out by the old Timmonen place. People seem almost relieved to hear that its alive. I wonder if its been hiding from the dragon.
Speaking of the dragon I wonder what happened to it. It still hasn’t returned.
Pete and Eino caught some fish but they didn’t see any swimming rabbits white or otherwise. Lori was taking pictures of the reception and got a good picture of the chicken. She thinks they will look at that in the album years from now and laugh.
Robert is glad the White Rabbit is back as its good for his tour business even if his isn’t the real White Rabbit.

Spent most of the day working on the study and shredding papers. Now I could get a job as an assistant to a politician. We have another walk through by a perspective buyer on Monday.
Went to church this evening. United was celebrating Christmas in July. It was great singing Christmas carols and thinkink of the meaning of Christmas without all the hassle of the December holiday. Then we went grocery shopping. Well I need a breathing treatment.
