Life goes On

I have reached Peter’s house and an internet connection.
We spent all day yesterday moving stuff from Pennie’s old house to our new house. Two Men and A Truck moved the furniture and they really moved fast. All the furniture was moved in to the new house in four hours. We spent last night in our new home. We even got our bed set up and all my breathing equipment. We were both so tired we slept like logs. This morning we packed up the breathing equipment and left for Crystal Falls. Betty doesn’t want me to call it home anymore.
Pennie’s old house is set to be sold on the tenth of December. Now if we could find a buyer for ours.
We will go back next week so that we can celebrate Thaksgiving there. By then the new internet connection should be in.

News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my garage where trains still run and dragons fly free– Yesterday if you can believe Mrs. Trumble’s nosey neighbor the dragon showed up and circled her house four times. Mrs. Trumble came out with her shotgun and then the dragon flew off into the woods. Mrs. Trumble was not happy. She claims it was trying to burn down her house and only her coming out with the gun prevented it.
Tommy hasn’t taken any steps to protect the dragon.
Nancy says she has seen some hunter’s coming in with dead deer. These are hunters and not camp people. Dr. Fortress has a special car to carry the deer in back to the city. Some of the successful hunters even stopped in for coffee and a saffron bun while they were waiting for the train.
There still is a rumor that Dr. Fortress is going to close down the railroad and leave the area. This would be the end of Pigeon falls.

No link today because I am on the road. Betty will draw when we get back to Crystal Falls.
We are home. Betty decided to draw tomorrow morning to give us time to get the JCPOINTs totals up to date. Well I need a breathiing treatment.

Things are moving along quickly! I can imagine how sound you and Betty slept after all the rigamarole of moving. It is exhausting.

I'm glad that things are coming along good. That the movers did a good job and that you slept in your new home and in your own cozy bed. I'm glad that you are at Peter's now and you can spend more time with them. It is going to be so wonderful for you to be closer to all of them. I'm hoping and praying that you find a seller for your home soon. If 'they' only knew the blessings that that home holds, they would all want it.
I hope you and Betty are not overly exhausted. Pls take care, this is a very busy time and stress is a bit of a catalyst sometimes.
Oh Tommy must make a law to protect the dragon too or else Mrs. Trouble will be shooting at him..I think it is a bit funny that he circled her home a few. it's kinda naughty of him but i can see how he might want to tease her a bit..
i do hope that there is never an end to Pigeons Falls. Oh pls no...there must be a way.
Oh Dr. John, you are not really selling the layout of the trains are you? pls, pls no...if it's money you need to raise than we will raise it, just tell us..and if it's space in your new home, i'm sure there is the front or backyards...

i hope you are well. i hope Betty is doing alright and both you are happy for the new beginning. Thank you for keeping us to date in what is happening even though things are so busy for you. love and hugs all around.

This may be a repeat --- just changed to new beta blogger and my post appears to be out in cyberspace.

Surely you mean Pigeon Falls will end literally, not figuratively. It will always continue on in the blogosphere -- if not in the library of congress :-)

Need an illustrator for the book?

I am glad you are moved in now. I know how exhausting moving can be. Take care, and enjoy your new home.

I agree, if it's the money we will band together and hold "Save Pidgeon Falls" fund raisers!

I believe when your house sells, it will all fall into place extremely quickly! Let's pray that it happens sooner rather than later!

I had been away from blogs for a few days, and when I come back you are moved....that did happen fast. Well you will be unpacking for the next two years if you are like the rest of us. I do not like moving, even the thought of it panics me. haha So you are a braver soul than I.

Moving is exhausting, you're brave to do that all day and blog too! I hope you love your new place.

Make sure to share pictures of the new house!

The town of Pigeon Falls can be caught up by a tender tornado that drops them neatly in a new area. Of course, some streets may be mis-layed and some houses switched around during the replacement causing a bit of confusion. That would be fun. Will you run a contest on the most original name for the new town?

(EVERYBODY! Don't forget this Wednesday is Roasting Dr. John night! Simply write a blog in his honor sharing stories true and untrue and all in good humor fun to roast our man of the hour!!

I wonder if she put food out in the woods for the dragons they might leave her house alone...

Life without Pigeon Falls? Pigeon Falls without life? Either scenario makes me very, very sad.

"Two Men and A Truck." It sounds like a movie title. It's good to hear they did such a good (and swift) job of getting you and Betty moved into your new home. I hope you two will be blessed with many years of happiness and love there.
