Logo four

This is the last of the possible logo's . Tomorrow I will let you vote for the one you like best.

The other three are shown here so that you can compare them.
Today’s is another real Finnish Linna or fortress.
I am not sure the computer likes it because I have had nothing but trouble this morning with the computer.
It started with its beeps again and then I had to do a restore and I’m not sure that solved it. Stress is the price we pat for blogging.
But look at today’s logo and tell me what you think.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls –The little town in my garage where the trains still run and dragons fly. Yesterday was a great day for Louise. The weather turned nice and the temperature even got up to 30. People lined the street for the parade. Louise , all bundled up, rode in an open car behind the salt truck. She waved and people cheered. Suddenly there was silence. Louise looked up and above her head but keeping pace with the car was the dragon. It was as though he was saluting her. He even breathed fire as if to add fireworks to the occasion. Louise was moved to tears. When the parade reached the end of the street the dragon turned the corner and flew off into the woods. The receptions at the Church and the Masonic building went well but Louise was glad to get back to her apartment. There a CARD was waiting for her. It was from Tarja Halonen, President of the Republic of Finland. She was overjoyed.
Today she called for Eino to come and visit her. When he came she said “ Eino the dragon is Finnish. My daughter won’t believe me. But it said to me Iloinen Alku while I was in the parade.” Eino asked why nobody else heard it. Louise said that it was in her head. He spoke somehow in her head. Now either Louise was going senile or Eino had another mystery and a possibly Finnish dragon. He thought all dragons were English.
Did the dragon really speak to Louise in her head? Can this be a Finnish dragon? Didn’t St. Urho get rid of all the Finnish dragons? Will Bernice ever find her birth mother? Is Louise going senile. Is Eino going to have a mental breakkdown from all the mysteries? What plays did Eino see in New York? And of course is Tommy really the undertaker’s kid?

Today's link-We Blog Cartoons- A source of cartoons for your blog. My thanks to Alastair who writes New Kid on The Block for this link. Even though he suggested the link could you still put Dr. John in the comment.
I worked on the question section for tomorrow. I wish I was better at this computer stuff. My computer did its beep thing again. I ran a full diagnostic and it seems to have recovered. All of that took time. I also finished reading one of the books I got yesterday. "New Spring" by Robert Jordan. It was an okay read but not really special. Once I get into a story I have trouble putting a book down. Speaking of down , blogger was down off and on today. Well I need a breathing treatment.

I vote for this one.

Lots going on in Pigeon Falls. Will we be able to keep it straight? Can Dr. John keep up the suspense? Will Dr. John's transfer his thoughts to us through the computer screen and control us?. Will Babelfish work on the dragon? Will Tommy ever find out who his real parents are? Is it even possible to know who comes up with all these questions?

I'm torn between yesterday's logo and today's. I guess I will have to sleep on it so I'll know how to vote tomorrow.

The dragon has a heart!

I like this one. It looks like a strong fortress - but not forbidding. It looks like a fortress inhabited by happy people. I did like your picture in yesterday's though. What to do, what to do. . .

I am glad the President of the Republic of Finland came through for Louise. It seems like that meant a lot to her. I was also touched by the escort provided by the dragon. What a lovely celebration for Louise :-)
