Then and Now
Saying for the Day: I don't care what my kid did.He didn't do it.
If you have been reading my wife’s blog ( and everyone should) then you read about how when she was a little girl she got into a slight argument with a boy and he broke her leg (according to her it was her fault).
The story shows us the difference between today and the good old yesterday.
Yesterday the boys father made him tell Betty he was sorry and together he and his dad built Betty a dollhouse to play with while her leg was in the cast.
Today the dad would have denied up and down that his son was to blame.
Both sets of parents would have contacted lawyers.
A law suit would commence.
An out of court settlement would be reached and the lawyers would do well.
There would be no doll house.
I think I like the way it used to be better.
News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my backyard-Nancy told everybody that stopped in today that the last thing in the world she wants to be is mayor. She is much too busy with the tea shop and turning her grandfather’s house into the Emil Towner Vanhala Museum. You remember the town council got the house named as an historic building.
Well what happened last night is so unbelievable that if there weren’t four people in Robert’s tour group that witnessed it nobody would believe it happened. The group was stopped across the street from the fire hall. The white rabbit showed up on the roof just about on schedule but then it was on the roof of the Masonic building as well . Then while the two were visible it showed at the end of the street as well. Suddenly the one of the fire hall roof vanished as the one on the end of the street hopped away. But the one on the Masonic building floated up into the air and then slowly back behind the building. There was a noise like a shot and it disappeared. At first they thought somebody shot it but in the morning no dead rabbit (which is alright because we don’t have a recipe for a 2 1/2 foot rabbit anyway). The usual marks were on the roof and in the bushes. Sp now we have a 2 1/2 foot white rabbit in a pink sweater that swims, floats in the air, and can be in three places at one time. Mrs. Trumble says this proves its demonic. These are all manifestations of the demon. We need a good exorcist.
Frank has started a petition to change the town name to White Rabbit Falls as the rabbit is bringing in so many tourists. Besides if we change the name we can get rid of the pigeons ( in a human way of course not with a wood chipper) .
Somebody asked Tommy’s father why he was out last night when he was supposed to be grounded. But his dad said he checked on him twice and he was in bed sleeping. Poor Tommy is in trouble even in his sleep.

We finished the living room (Esther please note) . Started on the garage so that the furniture were giving away could be moved from the basement. Betty went to the dump with the garbage but it was closed. The lady who was supposed to pick up the things we are giving away won't be here until Monday. We'll wait because she is willing to take it all. Tomorrow we start on the dining room. Betty went to the grocery store. Well I need a breathing treatment.
