Back again-

Saying for the Day: Home is where you hang your hat or as my grandfather used to say "Ome is were you ang you at."

We are in our new home, well in Pennie’s half of the new home.

We will live in this half until May.

We will ask the renters to vacate as of the first of April.

We just don’t have the heart to ask them to go now during the holiday season.

We don’t want to put them out in the cold months.

So April is what we are aiming for.

Of course, the extra income coming in from the rent won’t hurt either.

The internet connection was just installed along with more channels than one can possibly ever view.

But I do have my soaps and my internet so life is good. Because I couldn’t publish this blog until late in the afternoon there will be no link today.

Hopefully everything returns to what passes for normal tomorrow.

The dog is at Peter’s house and I doubt that we will get it back. I talked to my granddaughter and it was sitting on the chair with her.

She took it over to meet the dog next door and has been spending lots of time with it.

You can not believe what a lovable dog it is.

My brother-in-law said that if Peter doesn’t want it he would take it.

He fell in love with it bringing it to our house .

Even Betty has fallen in love with it.

It is so much like the dog I grew up with and it loves kids so I guess Bree;s is the best place for it.


News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my backyard where the trains still run and doomsday talk is in the air– December 15 and then comes the end. That’s what people are saying in Pigeon Falls. The old Coptic prophecy has them all shook up. Well not all. Eino has been doing some reading on the great Russian Poet and seer Alexis Grengicoff . According to Eino, Grengicoff was a monk in an odd Russian sect. He is sometimes called the mad Monk of Kiev. He used to drink a bottle of Vodka and then go into a trance. His students would write down everything he said while in the trance like state. Often the pronouncements came in the form of poetry. When Grengicoff would awaken he had no idea what he had said nor could he explain what it meant. It was only a century later when his writing was seen as prophetic. People began to see in his writing predictions of things that had happened since his death.

Eino says that like all such seers this is just a bunch of nonsense since it can be read only after the event and not before. For example his prediction that the short tree would get its army stuck in the big sands to be attacked by small ants is now being seen as George Bush( small tree) getting our army stuck in Iraq (big sands) where small groups of terrorists are attacking. ( Small ants). Where were these interpretations before the event? It’s easy to predict after the event or to more exact to interpret a prediction after it seems to have come true.

Nancy says that people aren’t paying a lot of attention to Eino. Instead they are acting like the end was coming.

Pastor Marvel has also tried to call the people back to reality even though the scare has been good for church attendance. He told the congregation that the end of the world was not in the hands of some obscure Russian Monk but in the hands of God. He said that on December 16 they will see how silly they have been.


No link today: We spent the day waiting. Waiting for a stove repairman, for Apria to bring my oxygen, for the cable guy, and for Pennie’s new dining room table. They all came at their assigned time. That is something like a miracle. Now I need a breathing treatment.

So i gathered that it is a side by side duplex. What a brilliant idea! together but with a bit of independence still. I can read in your words how much how love the new doggy. I'm sorry that you miss him already. I'm happy for Bree though, she is such a sweetheart and she hurted so bad with the death of her dog. I hope that Peter can grow to love him and that the family will enjoy every second of the new addition.
I'm happy that all the services came to you on time. And most of all that your oxygen is all hooked up and now we know you are safe with all your meds.good to have the stove is up and running. i thank you for the lovely video of that special sunday, your sermon farewell. how lovely it is to see you all. you are all so wonderful. it is so easy to understand how come so many of us are full of love for you all. you will celebrate Thanskgiving in your new home. It is a wonderful way to start a new life. Even though our official day here is done, i am grateful for you every day, for you all actually. How your and Betty won't ask your renters to move until it's spring melts my heart. Thank you for being you. How kind. Many blessings to you. Will you bless your home? Do you guys do that, a prayer and some holy water kinda thing?
It is good to see people coming to church. i hope that no matter what comes on Dec. 16, it will be alright for the town. If God is behind any event, than i have Faith that it will be for the better..
Many hugs to you sir and to Pennie and Betty. Much love to all. Sleep well in your new home. God Bless.

Hmmm, maybe Eino needs to spread the word that the "prophecies" came from a bottle of vodka.

Dont unpack much. Even tho it will eventually go next door, it is much easier to take it over in a box.

Glad you are finally in place and have your tv and internet set up. I bet you and Betty are about wore out. Thank goodness you are in before the holidays or bad weather.

I am glad that y'all have gotten moved, things are pretty much up and running, and you are ok. (Alright, I had started to worry about you and had to keep telling myself that it was the move and not your health that had delayed the posting. I panic that way too often.)

How wonderful that y'all are giving the renters the winter to find a new place.

I somehow see a coralation between the drunk monk's prophecies, and drunk Ernie seeing the dragon...hmmm. Maybe doing this research and watching the town's hysteria will convince Ernie that he needs to lay off of the "sauce".

That was sweet of you to wait until May to give the renters some time and to relax over the holidays. In the next two years we will have to either buy or build a house. Right now we're not sure how or where. We've already been offered jobs in Florida but Jon has to finish college and Florida is expensive, hot, sultry and hurricanes are big and scary.

I bet Bree is in love with her new doggie. What did she name him? (I may have missed that.)

Nice that you are settled and the dog has a good home with the children.
Don't work too hard. Sit back and enjoy Thanksgiving. Wishing you all a happy day with friends and family.
