News from Pigeon Falls- The little town in my garage where the trains still run and dragons fly free.-

It is almost as if Pigeon Falls has fallen under some kind of black cloud. Yesterday Wink’s Woods opened early and had some special sales to attract customers and almost nobody came. People are just not in a holiday mood.

As if things weren’t bad enough the one remaining iron mine announced that if the trains stops running it was closing up as well. That was followed by a similar announcement from the lumber mill. These are the two biggest employers in the area so people are really worried.

Petrovich has used all of this to prove the prophecy is true and Pigeon Falls will end on December 15. More and more people are beginning to believe him.

Nancy and Eino are doing their best. They are pointing out that if enough people believe this nonsense they will in effect make it happen. If the mine closes the town will go on. Other mines have closed and the town recovered.


Today's Link:The Talk of the Town-Remember to put the words Dr. John in the comment to get those Pixel loaded JCPOINTS.

Had another great day. My three grandsons and my son Pat stayed for another day and we had a great time. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Pidgeon Falls needs a Christmas miracle! Somebody to remind them that a town is not the businesses that operate there but the people who inhabit it! So interesting seeing your list. Isn't it amazing what we accomplish in a lifetime?

I wonder if someone has done all those things....if so, I bet they are single and independently wealthy.

I enjoyed reading the rest of your answers, I will try to get my answers on my blog soon.

Things in Pigeon Falls sound Bleak, Sounds like "The Grinch" is at work in Pigeon Falls. A Christmas Miracle does need to happen.

A Blessed Weekend is wished for you and Betty

I have my blog marathon certificate hung on the wall behind the computer, and the snow glob sitting on top of the monitor. All so that I will have a constant reminder of your kindness, generousity, and love.

I wonder if Mrs. Trumble would be willing to work with the White Rabbit and Dragon, albeit tempararily, to save Pidgeon Falls.

I may not even watch soaps, but I am addicted to the updates of Pidgeon Falls and pray the town continues so that I can keep getting my fix!

Katie spied out the Turtle Bath Tub Stopper and declared it to be her prize, not Mommy's. In fact she is now "napping" with it and it has gone just about everywhere (including the tub) since it arrived in the mail yesterday.

She wants my Globe too!! Not going to happen though - it looks very nice adorning my nice clean desk along side my special mug.

Now all I need is a matching mouse pad! Thanks Dr. John.

Got my marathon mug today. Thank you very much!

Must do some Google searches on Dec 15th to find the significance of that day.

i'm so intrigued to see how you are wrapping the story up. i can see how Dr. Fortress and the train are they catalyst. brilliant i tell you. still what are you going to do with all of us hooked on Pigeon Falls. we will too be in withdrawal after Dec. 15...but i know somehow you will make it all work.
i'm so happy Pat and the kids were there. so good for you both and them as well. happiness all around. hope you have a sound, good restful night. hugs to all.
