@@@# News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my garage where the trains still run, boys talk to rocks, and the Liar’s Club waits for stories.– Buddy East , the Great Grand Liar of the Year, is upset that they don’t have more stories. “ Are there no story tellers left that could write a little dragon story?” He asked at yesterday’s club meeting. In the great wide internet are there only two writers willing to try? The Club is offering the best prizes ever. They have asked their friends to help advertise the contest. What more can they do?
Jack filled the pulpit at Last Lutheran yesterday and did his usual good job. The interim pastor Norman Moe is supposed to arrive sometime today. His wife will follow sometime later as she has a teaching job in the last town to which he was assigned. Members of Last Lutheran are hoping he will be as good as Pastor Marvel. The poor guy has a big hill to climb. Pastor Marvel was very popular and that’s a problem to begin with. Pastor’s Marvel’s mother was Finnish and Pastor Moe is clearly not a Finn, another problem. Finally Pastor Moe is a good friend of the Bishop and since last years nonsense with the retired Bishop , Bishops are not the most popular people in Pigeon Falls. That’s three strikes . In a ball game Pastor Moe would be out already.
It would seem that Nancy is just a little upset that Tommy TW spent some time with Kathryn instead of her. She understands that he is interested in Kathryn’s research. She understands that a little Finenglish would add to his book. But she also understands that Kathryn is not bad to look at and is younger than her.
Of course Nancy has enough on her hands with the strange happenings at the coffee shop. Tommy UK was in for a cup of coffee on Saturday when the first event happened. The beautiful tea pot that Mrs. Marvel brought Nancy from Florida walked off the end of the counter, it might have slid. Poor Nancy had a vision of that pot in a hundred pieces but then the odd thing happened. It was just like a slow motion movie. The tea pot slowly sank to the floor and landed gently. Neither, she, Tommy or Mrs. Armond Jack , the other customer, had ever seen anything like it. Mrs. Jack said the shop must have a playful poltergeist. Tommy UK said there were no such things as poltergeists so it must be odd air patterns caused by the heating system. Whatever it was the tea pot wasn’t hurt. Then in the middle of the afternoon with only Bernie Howser having coffee the coffee pot erupted. The top flew off and the coffee went straight up into the air and formed a fountain falling back into the pot. Bernie freaked out and ran out of the shop. Then the coffee little by little settled back into the pot and the lid flew on. Nancy is wondering if the place is haunted.
Can a non Finn make it at Last Lutheran? Will Pastor Moe fail? Will more people enter the dragon story contest ? Should Nancy keep an eye on Kathryn? Is the coffee shop haunted? Where is the dragon? Whatever happened to Eino? And of course Is Tommy UK really the undertaker’s son?

Back to dull dull days. I blogged in the morning looking for future daily links. Then I watched my soaps. Then went looking for train parts. I ordered Betty a new computer, She went to ELCW . Pennie bought a new computer. A laptop with Vista and a built in web cam. I visited all my links and left comments on those that had new entries. Helped Pennie get her new computer talking to the house net work.Like I said a dull dull day. Now i will take a breathing treatment.
