Bits and Pieces
Bits and Pieces
Just a few things I found this week on the blogs that you can read or jump over.
Do you want to know where words like threshold and wake came from? Do you want to know where terms like “saved by the bell” , “ upper crust” and “chewing the fat” came from. Well our good friend Alastair did the deep research for us and you can see it by clicking HERE. This is the kind of useless information that you can surprise your friends with.
Want to make a reasonable easy to prepare meal. Well Margaret gives us a recipe for Swedish Meatballs ( that’s Swedish not Finnish). That is easy to make and low in cost. Click HERE for that.
Wondering what to get for that special gift. Want something original, usable, and reasonable in cost. Then click HERE and see the cups designed by Janvanghogh.
You have read what the political right thinks of the people in Washington and you have read what the political left thinks of those same people. Click HERE for a blog by the raging middle.
Wouild you like to see some beautiful pictures of a winter walk in Calgary Alberta, Canada? Then click HERE and The Old Fart will guide you.
@@@@News from Pigeon Falls– The little town where the trains still run, dragons might fly, and the Lutherans are sad.– All day yesterday Nancy listened to Pastor Marvel stories. You know the ones that begin “ I remember when”. It would seem that the good Pastor touched a lot of lives during his twenty years in Pigeon Falls and they really don’t want him to go. But even if they don’t want him to go he is leaving. He will be at Last Lutheran for two more Sundays and then he will be on his way to Florida. He has arranged for the Bishop to come and talk with the Council about what happens next. The Bishop will be in Pigeon Falls next Wednesday and will have super with the council. He will also preach at the Midweek Lenten service. Nancy says she has read where there is a shortage of pastors in the ELCA and they may not be able to get one for Last Lutheran. The head of the council said that it doesn’t seem fair for God to take their one Pastor and send him to a congregation that already has two. Not fair at all! Perhaps the Bishop can explain that.
It snowed last night in Pigeon Falls and Mrs. Trumble was out this morning with her Anderson snow scoop. Usually Tommy UK does the driveway for her but with his sprained ankle he couldn’t. Those darn deer cause so many problems.
A stranger came in on the milk train this morning. He had no skis , no snowmobile, and didn’t look like the hunting type. He took a room at the Fly Inn but he didn’t have a reservation. He said he was in town to visit an old friend but he didn’t say who. One thing is sure you can’t sneak into Pigeon Falls on the milk train.

I slept pretty well last night which means I was really ready for this super dull day. I did a little blogging ( sound familiar?) . I watched my soaps. I did some more blogging. I watched Law and Order CI. I did some more blogging. I almost forgot the high point of the day . My sister Dawn called just to say hello. That was the excitement. The center of the day. Now I need a breathing treatment .
