Saying for the day: Take one in the morning to clear the mind.
There are all kinds of blogs out in the blogasphere .
Some of them make us laugh.
Some of them make us sad.
Some even make us sick.
But not too many of them really make us think.
There are lots of blogs out there that take positions.
There are lots of blogs that try to tell us what the truth really is.
But lots of those blogs are not well thought out and show very little study of the problem.
The other day I came across one of those special blogs.
It makes you think.
It is clear.
It shows that the writer knows what she is talking about.
That doesn’t mean one always has to agree with her .
She is not perfect .
But she is worth reading.
Her blog is :
"Meditations from the Messy Middle of Things"
and she goes by the blog handle of the Rev. Dr. Kate.
I really think everyone should read her “Rules of Religious Respect”.
I could, I suppose, have made her a link for the day but I wanted her to be read even by people who don’t care to play the link game.
So please give her a look and then think a bit about what she says.
It can’t hurt .
News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my backyard where the trains still run and nobody runs for Mayor– We are getting closer to the November election and a feeling of panic is setting in in Pigeon Falls. The citizens remember last spring when the Mayor and the Board all resigned and the chaos that followed. They don’t want to see that again and yet nobody wants to take on the task of running the town. Everybody says they are too busy or not smart enough. But the real reason is they have seen the kind of year the Mayor and Council have had and they want no part of that.
Nancy says that fear of the future of the town is becoming a bigger topic of conversation than the name of the school teams. You know something is big when it pushes sports aside in a small town.
Speaking of Sports the New Potatoes play the Trojans this Friday. Nobody gives the team much of a chance. The school is the smallest school in the conference and the Trojans are undefeated. The New Potatoes are likely to get mashed again.
The only good news for the town is that people who used to take the train color tour and just go through Pigeon falls are now stopping in the hopes of seeing the White Rabbit or the Dragon. Locals have plenty of stories to tell them and both the rabbit and the dragon grow with the telling. Some of those waiting to leave last night got to see the real thing as the White Rabbit showed up off the end of the train station. He was wearing his red, white, and blue sweater and hopped and smiled. Those were some happy tourists. Mrs. Trumble showed up about fifteen minutes later with her trusty Dragon Slayer but the rabbit was long gone.

Betty painted the trim on the garage door this morning. After lunch we left the Fortress and I finally got a haircut. Then we went to the dump and got rid of some garbage. then to Iron River and the drug store. The ride over and back was beautiful and we were sorry we didn't bring the camera.Well now I need a breathing treatment.
