Tigger on Toast

Saying for the day: The best songs are the new songs.

My daughter has a toaster that burns an image of Tigger ( from Whinny the Pooh) onto the toast.
It also plays a little tune when the toast is ready.
My five year old grandson thought this was so great he made up a song, the Tigger son.
It went Tigger… Tigger… Tigger on toast.
This was repeated until he was distracted by something else.
But then he decided grandpa should sing it with him.
He thinks grandpa can sing , poor kid.
Then he wanted his aunt to make a movie of us singing “his song”.
So because I had nothing else for the blog this morning here is Luke’s “Tigger on Toast”.
The camera Penny has doesn’t do great sound so listen carefully.

Now I have to go look for a church.

News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my garage where the trains still run and nobody can leave.– This is the second day of what Mrs. Trumble is now calling “ The Occupation’. The town is under control of the army and not just any army but highly trained special forces. Nobody can enter and nobody can leave. All contact with the rest of the world has been cut off.
Aside from that life is going on as usual. The school is open and the kids went to class. The stores are open and Nancy’s coffee shop is doing plenty of business. Yesterday she served record amounts of $.25 coffee , a lot of it to soldiers who couldn’t believe the price. She tried getting information from them with no luck at all. No one is telling why the town is quarantined.
Eino watched the news programs on television to see if he could get some information. WBAY out of Green Bay said that the government was running some kind of test of National Security and people were banned from an area just below Green Bay and that there was a similar ban on an area in Upper Michigan. Attempts by reporters to enter the area had been rebuffed. The announcer felt that these were strange places to be testing national security. There was no mention of a quarantine in the news cast.
Tommy stopped in to see Eino and told him he had a plan to get out of Pigeon Falls and find out what is going on. Eino told him not to take chances but to let the adults work it out.
Then there is the Tonkin place. The Tonkins lived just outside of Pigeon Falls and this morning , according to their neighbor, the place vanished. First it was there and then it seemed to glow. Then it was gone. In its place there was part of a corn field and what looks like half a barn. Since this is not possible it must be some kind of illusion. Houses don’t vanish. Whatever virus they have must be causing them to see things. It is also causing them to not see things as nobody has seen any of the Tonkins since yesterday.
Other than seeing things nobody seems any sicker than usual. The town hypochondriac is now she is sure she is dying of the pigeon flue. According to her she has all the symptoms. She is convinced that soon everybody will have it.
Will all of Pigeon Falls vanish? Do they have some new kind of bird flue? Will Tommy escape? Will we ever know?
Today's link-Right Brained Girl- Rememeber to leave the words Dr. John in the comment to get those sad JCPOINTS. Check HERE for your total.
We got everybody up and made it to church on time. It is a nice church not far from where we live now. The pastor is a bit long winded but the people were friendly. The only thing that bothered me was they have Communion only twice a month. After church we went to a place where the kids got to jump on things filled with air. They had a woinderful time. By the time we got home Peter and his wife were there. He worked up an in house network so that all the computers can now share things like pictures. Well I need a breathing treatment.

They need to find Petrovich to get the answers. Obviously he must know. Where is he anyways.

Half a barn & a cornfield. Hmmmm. Tommy must be going to dig a tunnel.

BTW, there was no video on today's post.

Dr. John and Luke are Moooovie Stars! I'm so thrilled to see YouTubing Doc. It's time to break out our camera again as I forgotten how much fun it is.

I'll be praying for you to find the perfect church home. Here is an odd tell tale secret my Grandmom once told me when I was looking for a church.

If you see a box of Kleenex tissues anywhere - that's the church.

I dont' know why or what she intended by telling me this but it seems to have worked through the years. She's also the nutter who told me to find my "Birthday Twin" and marry him when I was about 10 years old.

25 years later I happened to stumble over my birthday twin and without planning to - fell head over heels in love and married him.

Yeah, look for that tissue box.

Love the video. Grandkids are just the best. They truly believe we can do anything. I think that is wonderful.
I think if Luke adds some more verses & uses Tigger on Toast as the chorus ya'll just might have a hit on your hands. At least with the 5 & under crowd. ~smiles~

Merry Christmas to all in your world.

Blessed be...

Catchy tune. I'll probably be singing it all day. Thanx.

Oh, and if the government makes Pidgeon Falls vanish, will we all disappear one by one as well, since we knew of it's existence ....

how lovely to let us see you and Luke, singing and all. pls can we have more of those clips, so that we can feel that much closer to you all. i can't tell you how adorable you both sound and look. i'm so, so happy that you moved, for all this joy of being closer to all of the family is so beautiful.
things are becoming so interesting in the town. i am so curious to see why the town and it's people are quarantine. i do hope that Tommy gets out and i do think he could. young people are resourful, don't always let 'rules' lead them and sometimes, like here, it might just be the needed thing.
good luck to him.
the prices of the coffee are just amazing. i have never heard of such a thing. how wonderful of Nancy to be doing this.
I do hope that you find a church that truly fits. i have never heard of only 2 times Communion per month.
i'm so glad you got to have so much fun with the kids and that the kids get to spend this wonderful time with you guys. God bless. hugs all around.

I now have 'Tigger, Tigger, Tigger on Toast' implanted in my brain. I imagine that I will probably wake up in the middle of the night, as I usually do, but instead of thinking about the list of things I have to do tomorrow, I will be humming this happy little tune. =)
