HAppy Days are Here Again
Saying for the Day: You would be suprised at what makes people happy.
If I was young and didn’t have so much arthritis I would be doing hand stands right now.
Well, maybe, not hand stands but at least some kind of happy jumping.
I called our Pastor last night and asked a favor and he was nice enough to grant it.
Since they are having a going away coffee for us on November 5th I asked if I could preach one last time at the three services and he said , YES.
I am going to stand in United’s pulpit one more time.
I am going to speak the Word from God to God’s people one more time.
You can not begin to understand what that means to me.
Preaching was the center of my life.
Every week I studied and every Sunday I preached.
For 35 years I filled that pulpit.
I hated to be away from it.
Since my illness I have not had the opportunity or , at least part of the time, the strength.
I get to preach on All Saints Sunday.
I think of all those people who shared with me in this proclaiming of the good news who have gone home and it seems like a wonderful Sunday to end my ministry in and with United.
I am so excited.
News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my garage where the trains still run and nobody wants to be Mayor– Eino’s friend from Portland told Eino that he couldn’t find anything on the company or the process in all those books. But he did find some articles in which it was rumored that the government was running secret experiments in teleportation that failed. The article said some people had to have limbs amputated because they became “ rock hard”. The writers of the articles quoted unnamed government sources.
Eino is fairly sure he knows how the Hermit Statue was made and that it wasn’t a failed teleportation but a machine that makes three dimensional statues out of paste and marble dust. But he is beginning to think the government is involved in some way. It still makes no sense.
The White Rabbit made an appearance last night at Middle Crossing. He waved to the passengers on the afternoon train as it left Pigeon Falls. I understand some took pictures. The White Rabbit had on his patriotic sweater. Somebody called Mrs. Trumble but she wasn’t home and her cell phone was turned off. But somebody must have gotten a hold of her because she was seen coming back from Middle Crossing in her truck. Well , they think it was Middle Crossing. That’s where the road goes. She could have been rabbit hunting as she had Dragon Slayer with her.
The Council voted to raise everybody’s tax bill and give the city employees a raise. They figured they were safe in doing that because they don’t intend to run for office again. People are steaming mad but not mad enough to run. One suspects the council was trying to provoke people enough to get them to run so they could change the action which doesn’t take effect until January. But it didn’t work. It just seems hopeless.

Betty went to a Women's gathering at teh Church. I spent the morning doing some research for my sister Dawn. I also printed out all my blogs since the last set I sent her. I pulled it all together and we will mail it to her on Monday. Betty and I went to church. The sermon was good but the attendance bad. Then we went grocery shopping. Well I need a breathing treatment.
