Monday before Christmas
Saying for the Day: You can not give a nicer gift than a good comment.
Twas the Monday before Christmas and all through the blog
Not a creature was stirring not even the frog
The saying was hung so neat at the top
In hopes that nice comments soon would drop
With ma at her keyboard and I at mine too
We waited for comments from people like you.
Its been a good week with comments galore
But still one could hope for more and yet more
The best of the week and worth JCPOINTS too
Was the poem about Petrovich by Javanagogh
But it’s a new week and time for the new
We need more comments from people like you
Leave long ones or short ones or medium too
About how you feel they will give us a clue
An now I exclaim fore I drop out of sight
Happy Comment Monday to all and to all a good night.
News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my garage where the trains still run and the army is in control– Day three of what Mrs. Trumble is calling “ The Occupation” began quietly enough. During the night the Tonkin place returned, if it was ever really gone. Mrs. Tonkin said that yesterday the soldiers wouldn’t let them out of the house. With the return of the Tomlin’s the half a barn and the cornfield have vanished.
Could it be that whatever is keeping the town quarantined is causing mass hallucinations? Certainly whole houses and half barns can’t just pop in and out.
Tommy didn’t show up for school today and his parents are worried. Eino, of course, knows where he has gone because he told Eino yesterday. In fact Eino knows the whole plan.
Now Eino is missing. His brother says he went home to get some parts for a car and will be back this afternoon. That satisfied the soldier who asked where he was. Nobody can leave town because every road is guarded.
Mrs. Trumble is demanding from the General in charge that the town be given some kind of reason for this occupation. The General disliked the term “occupation” but gave her no reason. He says it is for the good of the nation and she just has to believe him. Mrs. Trumble has threatened to have him broken down to private when she finally gets to her political friends.
Other than that life in Pigeon Falls is pretty normal.
