Thousand Individual Points Club (TIPC)
Saying for the day: Of the forming of clubs there is no end.
What this world really doesn’t need is another club.
There are clubs for fat people see Betty’s blog for Today and there are clubs for thin people.
There are clubs for crafty people and people who jump off of bridges.
There are so many clubs it would be hard to keep track of them.
Having said that I want to call your attention to just one more club.
It is the JCPOINTS “Thousand Individual Points Club“ or TIPC.
Yesterday there were five TIPC bloggers , Margaret, Catch, Friday’s Child, Stacy, and Chana.
Today we welcome two new members.
Cindy and Quilldancer.
Like all good clubs this one entitles you to something.
Our club perks :
1. You can refer to yourself as being TIPC and not have to drink to get there.
2. You get a free cup of coffee and a saffron bun every time you visit the real world fortress of Dr. John.
3. A beautiful membership card ( not yet sent due to Dr. John’s belonging to the Procrastinators Club.)
4. Better odds on the Monday and Friday drawings.( Why do you think they win so often)
5. First blogs to be visited by Dr. John in the morning.
6. Top place in Dr. John’s Link list.
7. Bragging rights
These , of course, are not all the perks the rest are detailed in the beautiful brochure that they received (will receive) with the card.
When you become TIPC you know you have arrived ( you just don’t know where).
Please note that today's Pigeon Falls is owed to Cindra Jo and her 18 word challenge. The darkened words are hers and in the order in which she gave them.
News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my garage where the trains still run and ordinary people get to play detective.-Eino called a good friend who lives in Portland and asked him to go to Powell’s City of Books , a veritable wonderland, and look through the 1,ooo,ooo books they have there for books about the company that bought the Hermit House. The friend in Portland owed Eino a favor though he can barely remember why. Eino felt that an independent like his friend on a foraging expedition will do better than Homeland Security. Eino would wander through the store himself if he had the time.
Mrs. Trumble is wondering what it is that lures the White Rabbit to come out. She is offering a reward for this information or any information that culminates in the capture of the White Rabbit , dead or alive. Tom, the game warden , said she better not break any laws.
Bob Murphy , who suffers from bibliophila, has been pestering Mayor South to put books in the city bathrooms. She said she is afraid people would be tripping over them and sue the city. Bob says the flippin' Mayor doesn’t know what she is talking about. She acts so pretentious but doesn’t love books. Mayor South covets the time when she won’t be Mayor any more and won’t have to put up with this. One can predict , without fear that she won’t run again. It looks like the town will need lots of luck to get anybody to run and Bob might be one of the reasons.

Betty went to Tops. I spent the morning and most of the afternoon redoing my link list. I added a bunch of new links including Rev. Dr.Kate, Smythe, Qusar9, Sunflower Optimism, Josie, Cuppojoe, Cindra Jo, Kat Campbell, Zingtrial, Candy, Butterflies, Sandy, and Sleeplessinoklahoma. I have also tested the links and they seem to work.
Betty spent teh afternoon cleaning out the pool on the layout. she drained the water and pulled the pump. She had to break the ice off the top to get to the water. She was pretty cold when she came in. Well I need a breathing treatment.
