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.
