It could be worse
Saying for the Day: Cheer up it could be worse!
Feeling a bit down this morning.
Cheer up things could be worse.
For instance a man in Beijing went out for a good time with his friends to a local restaurant.
There he drank four pitchers of beer and feeling very happy went to the zoo.
Seeing a lonely panda Zhang Xinyan jumped into the cage and went to hug it. The panda bit him and so he bit the panda back and then it bit him on the other leg. He ended up in the hospital. Now think of that the next time you drink too much and only end up with a hangover. You could have a panda bite or two.
Or you could belong to one of those new but different religions like Sarah Yule who was fired as a receptionist at St. Mary's Hospital in Troy, N.Y., earlier this year because she refused to remove her lip ring at work, which she said was integral to her religion, the Church of Body Modification.
Yule insisted that her several piercings are spiritual, giving her control over her body, and she declined to accept an alternate job at St. Mary's, away from public contact.
Just think the only problem your church gives you is a headache from that really boring sermon.
Then there is Darrell Rodgers, 40, who was treated at Bloomington (Ind.) Hospital in August after shooting himself in the left knee because he felt he had to try something to end the pain there (pain possibly from having shot himself in that knee 10 years earlier).
Be thankful your pain doesn’t require you to shoot yourself just to take a pill or two.
Finally , just after the Aug. 10 restrictions were imposed, British Airways refused to allow disabled New Zealand runner Kate Horan (on her way to the paralympic world championships in the Netherlands) to carry on her prosthetic leg, as she had long been allowed to do. Her checked-baggage leg was then lost in the chaos at Heathrow airport.
And you only lost a little luggage.
It takes a great airline to lose a leg.
So you see life could be worse.
Go and enjoy the day.
News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my back yard where the deer and the moose run free.– Robert came home from Northern Michigan University this week and reported that a moose came on campus this last week and broke a window in the dormitory. A state wildlife expert said the moose was looking for love since it is the mating season. Well at least Northern doesn’t have giant rabbits and flying dragons. (August 25) And Northern’s moose was sober not like the two moose that came up Pigeon Fall's main street last year.
Nancy says she wishes there was some kind of party in town tonight as she misses the dragon. Not only was it fun to watch but it was good for business because people had to come in for a cup of coffee or tea so they could tell her all about what they saw. With every telling the dragon has gotten bigger and bigger. It also keeps changing color. Nancy enjoys listening to the stories even though she has heard them many times.
Pastor Marvel may be the last person left that hasn’t said that he will not run for Mayor and will not serve if elected. He could always drag out that Captain Marvel suit and take office as a super hero. Shazam!
When Eino went to the school to check out Tommy’s alibi for his last supposed offense he discovered that Tommy was a straight A student. Why does such a smart kid do such dumb things? That time Tommy was either innocent or had learned how to be in two places at the same time. Now for a straight A student that might be a possibility.

We had a very good day today. My son and family came from Green Bay and spent the day. We went out and ate at Fob's. We spent most of the afternoon just talking but Peter did take care of some of the odd jobs around here. Well I need a breathing treatment.
