News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my garage where trains still run and life might be good at least until after Christmas– Pigeon Falls got a light dusting of snow last night and looks like something out of a storybook. In fact it would make a great painting. Too bad Norman isn’t around to paint anymore. Eino’s son , always looking to make a buck., is running horse drawn sleigh rides out into the country. ( Well its really a wagon but who quibbles ). The recent occupation by the army seems like ancient history and people are getting ready for Christmas/
Mrs. Schmidt called home from Hawaii and everything is going well. She is finally going to have her Christmas dream.
Eino has decides not to worry about White Rabbits , dragons, or hermits until after Christmas.
Pastor marvel is writing the greatest Christmas sermon ever and will be ready for Christmas. Mrs. Marvel wishes he would spend less time on the sermon and more time helping her get everything else ready.
Nancy is going to close her place on Christmas day and spend Christmas with the relatives. She is bringing a whole bag of saffron buns. Uncle Bob is bringing a blueberry pie and the feast will be great.
Mayor Trumble has put a big manger scene in front of town hall and said “Poo on the ACLU” but nobody has complained.
The milk train came in this morning , right on time. The upper track is back in operation.
Life is good.

No links until next Wednsday enjoy the holiday.
In the morning I got up late. I did the blog. Then we went over the Christmas list. After lunch we ventured out of the Fortress shopping. We went to six stores and we didn't get lost once, which is a record for us. I even got a Christmas gift for the dog so don't let him read this. Now I think we are really done. Got back in time to find that we had received two more suprise gifts. And some wonderful mail. One of Betty's friends sent a letter telling what is happening in the Tops Club and the Church. She has been asked to help out with the secretary's job because the secretary quit. Nothing ever stays the same. Tomorrow we will go to the Christmas Eve service at the church we attended last Sunday because it is close to the house. Now I need a breathing treatment.

I would snuggle next to Betty too, She always seems fuzzy and warm.

this morning I sent my daughter(13) to the mail, and when she came home - there was a package from you. I was sooooo delighted---

She begg'd me to let her open it, so, of course I did!

We marveled at all of the christmas objects in the box! Everything in there was sooo adorable! We luv them and will cherish them at every Christmas from here on out!

...and the sno-globe is perfect!

Thank you! (we must have used them properly- cuz they HAVE produced Christmas-joy in our home.)

If I were There--I would give You and Betty a Great Big Christmas Hug!
Merry Christmas!

Luv, star

That was a lot of fun to read.

BTW, is it true that fear of the parents is the beginning of wisdom?

I'm so glad life is good in Pigeon Falls.

And, as to number 13, I'll bet you can still charm them... hah.

My favorite Christmas hymn is "Once In Royal David's City". It's so beautiful.

I hope you and Betty and all your family have a wonderful, wonderful, Merry Christmas.
