Monday Monday Monday
Saying for the Day: People who laugh live longer.
We have reached another “leave a comment Monday”.
Last week was a great week for comments. I really enjoyed the one’s left on this blog.
You are a wonderful group of people.
I also enjoyed the comments you left on the daily links.
They were creative and most often to the point.
The funniest comment of the week award goes to Cuopojoe who wrote
“You know, I was told to “put Dr. John in the comment” at this blog, but I’m a little confused… You see, I’ve never actually met Dr. John in person, so I don’t know how big he is… Still, I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t fit in this comment box. It’s what? Like, 7 inches by 3 inches (give or take)?”
I almost fell off my chair laughing.
Some other creative uses of Dr.John
I was sent to you by Dr. John
He said to write "Dr. John"
I'll obey Dr. John
'Cuz he's Dr. John
And make sure I write "Dr. John

So I am awarding Cuppoejoe 50 useless JCPOINTS and 25 equally worthless blog explosion credits for making me laugh. Laughing is good.
Today’s JCPOINTS prize is a collectible Halloween bear.
I fell in love with the little fellow when I first saw him.
He is not only cute he is perfect for Halloween.
Good luck to you all.
News from Pigeon Falls-the little town in my back yard where the trains still run and rabbits run for Mayor.-The bad news in Pigeon Falls is that Pastor Marvel announced that he would not run for Mayor. He felt it would cause to many problems in the parish. So now there are no likely candidates. There is going to be a special meeting of the present council to see if they can come up with a willing candidate. In a town with 921 people you think that there would be a least one willing to become the Mayor.
Nancy says that everybody that comes in for coffee has a name to suggest but it is never theirs. She has heard more reasons why one shouldn’t be Mayor than you can believe. She is thinking of writing a book entitled “ 100 reasons not to run for Mayor”. In Pigeon Falls it would be a best seller. When someone is asked to run for Mayor they can just give the number from the book and save all the explaining time. Nancy says her favorite excuse came from a lady who said “ I get a cold every winter and we don’t need a sick Mayor”
The school board meets tomorrow night and the team name will be at the head of the agenda. One can feel sure that there will be more people there for this meeting than any meeting in a long time. Will they stand their ground and stick with New Potatoes or will they cave in and find some other name?
Tourists have been arriving all week in Pigeon Falls. They have come by train just to see the fall colors which are on there way to becoming the best ever. It was a very good year for orange and red in the leaves. The tourists stop only long enough to eat and do a little shopping and then take the train back. A lot of little white rabbit statues and dragon statues got sold already and the season has only begun. Wink’s is waiting for a sweater with a white rabbit in a red, white, and blue sweater with the words “For Mayor” underneath. They think local people will buy it as well as the tourists.
Today's Link-Jiggle the Handle-Remember to put the words Dr.John in the comment to get those never home JCPOINTS. Check HERE for your total.
We will draw when Betty gets up.
Betty is up and the names drawn are....
Starbender and Friday's Child
Congratulations to both of you. Our little bear will have a nice new home.
It was a nice day and Betty got some more painting done on the outside windows. I did a little work on the computer. It is my son Peter's and his wife Lori's anniversary today. Lori's birthday is coming up on the 29 of the month. Well I need a breathing treatment.
