In Gramp's Foot steps
Saying for the Day: A wise man knows from whence he came.
When Betty and I were in England my Great Aunt Dora took us to an old Methodist Church in the middle of a field.
It wasn‘t locked so went in and looked around.
Aunt Dora pointed out where my grandfather was sitting when he responded to an old fashioned altar call and gave his life to Christ.
I held in my hand my grandfather’s Bible which I had brought with me to England.
For a moment I could almost feel Grandpa standing there with us.
It was one of the very special moments of that trip.
Here I touched my religious roots.
I wanted to post some pictures of the church but all the pictures we took were slides and my scanner won’t handle slides.
News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my backyard where the best Liars get awards– The Liar’s Club judges met last night and announced the winner of the White Rabbit story contest. They felt that there was no question who the better story teller had been. They picked Donna Bergall. She gets the Liar’s Club sweater that says “Ask me about the White Rabbit” on the front and on the back it says “ Have I got a story for You”. Donna says that if the White Rabbit stops in she’ll give him the sweater. She also received coupons for ten free cups of coffee at Nancy’s. Now Nancy can keep up on her stories.
It snowed in Pigeon Falls today. This is only October. What happened to global warming?
Mrs. Trumble hasn’t been to town since the pumpkin festival . People think she is plotting some new way to get the rabbit.
Nancy says with the festival over and the dragon excitement ending the town is back to worrying about the next Mayor. People should be turning in their petitions to run and not one has been received. If somebody doesn’t come forward soon there will be no names on the ballot. It seems everybody in town has been asked at least twice and turned it down. The same thing is true of the council. In November Pigeon Falls may have no local government. People are starting to worry but not enough to say “Here am I . Elect me!”
Today's link- Thoughts from Oklahoma- Remember to put Dr. John in the comment to get those flowery JCPOINTS. Check your totals HERE. Marathon totals now added in. The final results of the marathon can be seen HERE.
Well I finished up the marathon material and am now getting the blogger cups and certificates ready to mail. It will take a bit because i have to get four more cups. The people who looked at the house today are coming back tomorrow to take pictures so I guess there is a possible sale there. We will see! I read on my daughterinlaw's blog that she is having thanksgiving at her mother's. We hadn't even thought about it until yesterday when we discovered my younger sister had invited my older sister and her entire family ( 11 people) to Peter's house for Thanksgiving. She assumed that because we were all together there last year we would be again this year. Its good the older sister turned her down. Life takes very strange turns.
Well I need a breathing treatment.
