Leave A Comment Monday

Saying for the Day- Every week has at least one Monday.

The hands of the clock have gone round and round.
The pages of the calendar have flipped .
We are back at Monday again.
As you are aware I’m sure a long time ago the Committee on Rules for Blogs (CRB) set Monday as the day to leave comments.
The official title being “ Leave a Comment Monday”.
Since that time vast numbers of people have ignored the rule.
I being the rule keeper that I am never ignore it.
I leave a comment on every blog I visit on Monday that has an entry I haven’t already commented on.
I figure if I obey the CRB blogger will work better.
It is Monday and as a comment addict I am asking you to leave a comment.
It doesn’t have to be long.
A simple Hi will do.
You will note a few more changes in the blog that might be worth commenting on.
The Finnish Word for the day has moved to the white space at the top.
The list of Finnish words now requires that you click the box marked Finnish Word List.
The list was getting a bit long.
On the right hand side you will notice the Linna family crest.
Is it genuine you might ask.
I paid good money to a research company so it better be genuine.

Now leave a comment or read the news from Pigeon Falls and leave a comment.

@@@@-News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my garage where the trains still run and the dragon might be Finnish-Tommy, the undertaker’s kid, has decided that Tommy, the writer, is not a dragon in disguise and has gone back to trying to contact the dragon brain wave to brain wave. He is concentrating on sending a message in both English and Finnish. The message is “Hi! my name is Tommy. Hei! Minä olen Tommy”. His problem is that the dragon hasn’t been back since the parade for Mrs. Mattson. But the next time it comes he’ll be ready. Of course, if the dragon should respond to Tommy in Finnish Tommy is a little short on words. But he’ll cross that bridge when he comes to it.
Homeland Security has not responded to Mrs. Trumble’s demand to explain the “Occupation” of Pigeon Falls. Her Washington friends are telling her that they are being told to leave it alone. It is a matter of national security. Mrs. Trumble thinks that just a phrase the government chooses to hide behind. How can holding a small town prisoner for almost a week advance the national security?
Nancy had a great time at Tommy, the writer’s, place yesterday. He served another fantastic meal. Then they sat on the couch and watched a couple of DVD’s. She came into the coffee shop humming again this morning. She has such a big smile and looks so happy.
Milk train had some problems this morning. Somehow one of the tanks developed a hole. There was milk all along the track behind the train and by the time they discovered it the tank was almost empty. Once this would have threatened the existence of the railroad but with the big government grant that came after the “occupation” it hardly bothered Dr. Fortress.

Link for today-Adventures in Everyday Life- Asks the question " Should I renew my library card or take down the Christmas tree?"-please leave the words Dr.John in the comment even though I do not take down Christmas trees.
I finished another book today. It was a fun read. Then I started printing out all my November blogs to send to my sister. I do procrastinate a little. Betty went out to go to the True Valuer store but couldn't find it. She has some kind of cold and slept all afternoon. I visted all my links and left comments on all those that had new entries. Now I needa breathing treatment.

Isnt Pigeon Falls worried about an influx of cats with the milk train tank leaking? Cats from miles around are going to follow the trail into town. A band of wild cats comes to Pigeon Falls. Oooh, I love kitty stories.

Well, no more mice. The cats might actually get after the White Rabbit. I had a cat that used to chase geckos. They are sort of like small dragons. I bet they would get after the big one too.

BTW, Tommy the undertaker's kid gave up too soon. He should ask Tommy the writer over to his birthday party and see if he can blow out the candles on his cake. Or better yet, ask him for help starting the fire in the sauna.

Comments are the only way we know if anyone is actually paying attention. I read a lot of blogs, but don't always comment since doing so would take up enormous amounts of time. I'm sure there are others like me out there equally as guilty.

Leaving a comment, as per CRB Rules:

Thank you so much for the saffron buns! Packed in a beautiful little box and kept fresh with Press n' Seal plastic wrap (isn't that stuff great?) The buns had that distinctive yellow color, like a paella - but they also had beautiful contrasting orangy-red streaks throughout, from the saffron. Very beautiful to look at - and very delicious to eat!

Thank you Dr. John and Betty for my wonderful (and tasty!) JC Points prize :-)

Hello Dr. John!
How interesting that you are taking up Finnish. I know of a Finnish a cappella group who are amazing!!!! Some of their albums are in English but the bulk are in Finnish. They even have a beautiful one with Hymns.
Given the fact that music helps in teaching a foreign language, perhaps you might like to give them a listen to help in your endeavor. They are truly worth the listen.

Your family crest is very stunning! Money well spent. Mine has an ugly old snarling hog on it. Nancy's romance seems to be progressing steadily with Tommy the writer. I hope he's not a player!
