Saying for the day: Family is the real treasure of life.
I was so proud of my grandsons yesterday.
First we were on the internet at EBAY trying to get a gift for the youngest of the three.
I told the other two that fifty dollars was my limit per kid.
It looked like the gift would end up around $80 so we would have to give up.
Both boys then offered to give me money.
Alex offered twenty which is all he had and Elijah offered ten which is all he had.Most of the time they have no money but they won that money playing cards with grampa.
They showed a real concern for their brother’s Christmas.
I am not sure at that age I would have done that for my sister.
We were very lucky, however, because we got what we wanted for under $50.
But they would have given if they had too.
Then when we went to the Mall and poor old grandpa couldn’t go any further they took turns pushing me on my walker which has a seat and wheels.
Do I have great grandsons or what?
News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my garage where the trains till run and a lonely rabbit does the best he can.– Yesterday the White Rabbit appeared all over Pigeon Falls with his “ The world is not ending” sign. He seemed to have sensed the mood and was trying all by himself to change it. Mrs. Trumble hasn’t commented on the change yet. She has been very quiet.
Eino and Nancy are still trying hard to lift people’s spirits but they are not doing very well. One lady even stopped into Nancy’s for coffee and broke down crying. She doesn’t want Pigeon Falls to end. It is amazing how hysteria can take over a town and all of it based on that stupid old Russian prophecy.
Still life goes on. Our potato farmers are now bagging the crop they harvested and shipping them out to grocery stores. Our hunters are coming home from the woods, one by one. Some with deer and some without. The ladies who went shopping in the city are back. The men who work in the mine and the mill continue to go to work.But over it all hangs the black cloud.
Today's link:The Poodle and Dog Blog-Remember to put Dr. john in the comment to get those cute JCPOINTS.
We are back in Crystal Falls ( no lon ger home) for a week. I will try to catch up on my blogging while we are here. So much has been going on that I haven't gotten to read many blogs for the last week. Now we have to pack everything we have to have in Neenah as we won't be back again until April. Esther is watching over the house for us though the only stuff left to steal is the big furniture and it is old. Our good stuff is in Peter's garage.
Well I need a breathing treatment.
