Cleaning the Desk Top
Saying for the day: You can tell a lot about a person by the pile on their desk.
Today a few things that have piled up and aren’t enough for a whole days entry.
First the church is giving us a going a way coffee on the 5th of November.
The problem with this is what if we don’t go.
Will I have to hide, going out only at dark?
Will I have to join a different church?
Will I need plastic surgery or a disguise?
If we don’t get the house will I have to go live with my son.
Which son will have us?
Don’t you just hate when people are nice to you?
Second does anyone know where an old fellow would put his teeth?
I can’t find mine and I want to eat some corn on the cob.
They used to be next to the tap on the sink in the kitchen but not any more.
Third a telephone game too short for a whole entry:
telemarketer: This is ,,, mortgage services. Is this Mr. John Lena
Me– Before I answer that tell me why you think I would be interested In a mortgage? Keep in mind I’m recording this conversation.
She hung up. I win. What a poor player.
Finally –Why do banks put their forms on 8 1/2 by 14 inch paper instead of legal size?
My copier only does legal size.
Now my mortgage company wants a copy of the mortgage on this house so I have to find a big copier.
All this junk comes together because tomorrow I have to find my teeth so I can go up to the church and use their copier.
That’s so I can get the loan and leave so the coffee wont be wasted.
All the while I’m doing this I’m wondering who told the mortgage company on the phone I was looking for a loan.
My bet is the real estate agent in Neenah.
News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my garage where the trains still run and where a big White Rabbit could be the next Mayor.-Tommy, the undertaker’s kid has a big sign on his wagon that says “Elect the White Rabbit Mayor”. One wonders if he wants the dragon on the council. Perhaps Nancy will ask him/ Pigeon Falls would make the national news again as the only town to elect a rabbit as Mayor. The Rabbits slogan could be “Elect Me and I’ll Keep Things Jumping”
Eino has yet to hear from his friend in Portland but then his friend has a lot of books to go through. While he is waiting he has been looking into the machine that can make small statues of the same material as the Hermit Statue. He is beginning to think that somebody made a bigger machine and copied the Hermit. But he can’t begin to fathom why. Why make a pseudo marble statue of the Hermit and cause it to be found? What purpose does it serve? Who do they want to fool and who is doing the fooling? Every time Eino gets an answer it gives him six new questions.
Nancy says she is giving up and getting ready to live in a town with no government. She assumes the state will come in and do something. That can be either good or bad. In State elections the town has always voted Democratic and the Governor is a Democrat so that could be good. Of course after the election the Republican could be governor. It all depends on whose lies you want to believe , his or hers.
