Saying for the Day:No matter how careful you are you always forget something you really need.
It’s the middle of the week.
Betty and I are trying to get everything ready before we leave on Saturday.
We need to:
1. Have packed up every room ready for the movers.
2. Decided what boxes must come with us now. ( We won’t be back until April)
3. Leave the house in the condition that the real estate agents can show it.
WE have no television as the cable had been turned off.
I miss my soaps.
I thought I would have lots of time to blog but we are so busy packing that there hasn’t been much time for that either.
I’m lucky I don’t have the shakes from so much withdrawal.
We came up Sunday and left my breathing mask in Neenah.
“No problem” I said : We will use the old ones.
That’s when Betty told me the old one’s were packed in a box in Peter’s garage .
She finally found a very old one and somehow she made it work.
It just about wrecked my nose.
Today the good mask came UPS , sent by my daughter. I sleep better tonight.
We had been saving pennies ( I have no idea why?) and we have so many we can’t carry them. Tomorrow Betty will haul them , in batches, to the bank and turn them in for money you can carry.
Betty is sure that one of the pennies will turn out to be worth a lot of money but I doubt it.
We will never know.
I have to get back to packing.
News from Pigeon Falls-the little town in my garage where the trains still run, at least unto December 14 th, and Mrs. Trumble is the Mayor– Mrs. Trumble has called a special council meeting for Thursday night. She want all the members to consider the present crisis . Each one is supposed to bring ideas of what actions to take if the trains stops, the mine closes, and the lumber mill quits. Is there a way to save the town. How will they survive the loss of the tax base these things represent. She gave each council person a sheet of questions and asked them to come with the best possible answers. If the town survives it may very well be because of Mrs. Trumble.
The White Rabbit hasn’t been seen since Mrs. Trumble became Mayor. Perhaps, he is afraid.
Nancy is now asking her customers some of the questions from Mrs. Trumble’s sheet . She thinks if people are busy working on the problem they will have less time to worry about it. In fact the mood does seem a bit more upbeat.
Tommy got sent to the principles office today for something or other. He is back to being just plain Tommy who dreams up ways to get into trouble.

Another productive day. We finished the study, cleared the books from one living room shelf, and brought more stuff down from the attic. we also took a pail of pennies to the Credit Union and deposited $199.47. That's a lot of pennies. Had lunch at Fobs. Coming out we met my old secretary Karen Groop. Late in the afternoon Esther stopped in to visit and made us an offer we couldn't refuse. I am going to miss those people. Well I need a breathing treatment.
