I lost it

Saying for the day- You Never miss the E-mail till its gone.

Yesterday I managed to blow out my in-box. I have no idea how I did it but I did.
All of yesterday’s E-mail is gone forever.
You can not know what that means to a person as paranoid as I am.
I am now imagining all the wonderful E-mail I got that I will never see.

I am sure I got the last of the instructions from that English lawyer that can’t spell on how to get the million pounds some nice guy , who I never met, left me.
Now I will never know where to send my social security number and bank routing information.
Thus I will never get the million. I am so upset.

There must have been at least one thing I won like a 46 inch high definition television.
It would have been mine for jumping through only eighteen hoops, small price to pay.

Ralph , I am sure, forwarded me some jokes and something patriotic.
I could have used a good laugh.

A long lost relative may have sent me a note to see if I was the grandson of James and Mabel.
Now he will never know and I will never meet him.

A note from my son Patrick who almost never writes.
I know yesterday was the day.

A chance to win a new car.
But I had to respond yesterday.

I am sure there was a special one day sale on the movie camera I really want.
Now I will never get it.

I am going to learn how to backup my e-mail so it never happens again.
But still yesterday is gone forever.
What, oh what have I lost?

News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my garage where the trains still run at least until December 15- Petrovich says that the Arab doesn’t even have to come to Pigeon Falls. He can load the bomb in a crate and send it by train to be unloaded in Pigeon Falls. The bomb has a timer set for December 15. The end may be sitting down at the depot. Eino says there are no unclaimed crates sitting down at the depot. Petrovich says that there still are several days to go. Watch for that crate.
Nancy says if the prophecy is true why watch for the crate when we are going to blow up anyway. That makes some kind of sense. Unless you see the prophecy as shadows of things that might be rather than thinngs that will be. In which case the outcome could be changed.
In the meantime Bill O’ reily who now owns Wink’s Woods is having a name the end contest. He is giving a prize for the most original end to Pigeon Falls. Here are some of the entries.
1. An Asian Pigeon flys in and the whole town dies from Bird Flue.
2. An airforce plane carrying an Atomic bomb crashes in Pigeon Falls and the bomb goes off.
3. Iran shoots an Atomic Bomb in a Korean Rocket and misses New York but hits Pigeon Falls.
4. The government research that produced the stone man in Eino’s basement goes further berserk and everybody turns to stone.
5. The government research that produced the giant White Rabbit now produces a huge snake that swallows the town.
6. The government experiment on moving people through space misfires and the entire town ends up in Texas.
7. A new deer tic bite produces a disease where people dance until they die. Pigeon Falls parties out.
8. The iron Mine hits a pocket of underground gas that blows the top of the mountain off and it lands on Pigeon Falls.
9. A volcano suddenly rises up through the main street and covers the town with lava.
10. A Martian space ship steals the entire town for an inter galactic zoo.
Pigeon Falls may not have many days left but it does have creative people.

Pigeon Falls survives. Tomas Petrovich is chased out of town to nearby Eagle River --- which to everyone's surprise has been bombed. Seems Tomas neglected to take into account that it too was a city of birds.

BTW, Jaf, I usually just click on "Other" to post.

Horrible feeling to lose all email. I have a bad habit of only remembering to backup after something happens and it is too late.

All the good folk of Pigeon Falls need to do is derail the train before it gets to town. There must be some members of the Resistance left.

Blessings to you and Betty

Ah, Dr. John -- I feel for you. But, remember, there's always tomorrow! And just think of all your lost emails floating free on the Neverending Virtual Highway -- for eternity!

You've gained a fresh new inbox! Chin up Dr. John - you didn't loose everything. In fact, I have a sneaking suspicion that there is a gentleman in Nambia who has entrusted a few million bucks to you also. You're a very trustworthy internet user. Must be that funny collar that you wear?

One is only as Old as one feels - lol!

Shall e-mail presently.

it is funny that you should call yourself paranoid. i would never have thought of you like that. i am for sure. i am almost wondering what and if and when and why, lol..i hope you didn't loose anything important. chances are that you didn't. and after reading this, if any of us would have sent you something they would know to resend so from that angle don't worry.
Petrovich will somehow make sense after the 15 but it won't be like what people expect. it is always like that with some foreseeing..besides the town will not end. i don't know how but hope prevails.
i hope you know how much we appreciate your comments and your words. they comfort us to no end. God Bless you and yours. thank you for everything. much love and many hugs. hope you and Betty are resting good at night.

Pigeon Falls needs to consider this: ... there's a town in the U.P. (Republic) that was transplanted when the mine expanded. For a long time, that part was known as "The New Location". They "been there-done that".

I bet AOL is trying to send you money, too.

And only one more day...
