Its that Monday Again

Saying for the Day-Grass always looks greener when the snow melts.

It is “Leave a Comment Monday” so a comment would be nice.
I continue in my program to bring the old sayings into the internet age.
Here are twenty more.

1.. Behind every cloud is a silver comment
2. Best laid comments of mice and men
3.. Better than a new comment

4.. Between a rock and a hard comment
5.. Beyond the comments
6.. Bide your comments

7.. Big eye little comment
8. Comment in the hand is better than two in the computer
9. Black as a bad comment

10. Bless your little comment leaving heart
11. Born with a silver comment is his mouth
12. Boy was that a new comment

13. Don’t leave a comment and you will have seven years bad luck
14. Bright as a new silver comment
15. Bring home the comments

16. Burning comment
17. Busier than a one armed commentator
18. Comments before pleasure

19. Call a comment a comment
20. Comments, can't live with them and can't live without them.
Feel free to use these any time a comment is in order.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town where trains still run, boys talk to rocks, and soon Pastor Marvel will be gone– As expected Last Lutheran was full yesterday. Even Mrs. Hermansen was there and she looked as sad as the others. Pastor Marvel preached a sermon on the partnership they shared in the gospel and how it wouldn’t end when he left. They would continue to share with the world the same Jesus.
Tonight the Bishop comes to meet with the Church Council to plan what happens next. The members are nervous because they know there is a shortage of Pastors. Mrs. Maaki ( with two a’s) said she didn’t want one of those gay Pastors they have in the city that she has been reading about. Tom Olson said the Church would never have gay Pastors. But she insisted she read it in the Lutheran magazine. Of course they could argue all day but until the Bishop comes they won’t have any real information.
Charlie Olson is as happy as a dead pig with a new comment as he got his John Deere Tractor back from the shop. The dang thing has been there forever while they searched for parts . It was only thirty years old and they should have had the parts on hand as far as he is concerned. Then the cost was twice the estimate. But despite all that he has it back. Just in time to plow snow. All day yesterday he rode that tractor. He waved at people coming down the road. He even did a little free plowing for his neighbors. You couldn’t find a happier guy than Charlie.
Another one of those pesky college students came in on the milk train this morning. She wants to study the development of Finenglish in Pigeon Falls. She also wants to see what remnants of the language are still there in public speech. She plans on staying three months and she will be staying with Mrs. Morris who is some kind of relative. One can bet she’ll be spending a lot of time at Nancy’s.

Today's Link-The World as Observed by Me-Like stories with a happy ending ? Here is one. Remember to leave the Dr. John in your happy comment. Please.
I feel better today. Had a very good night.
Just checked the oxygen levels in the blood after an hour without oxygen and they are the best they have been in months.
Had a very good day. i didn't need the oxygen bottle at all. The levels stayed up. My stomach was still upset. My sister called. She worries too much. I blogged a little in the morning. I watched my soaps. I visited new blogs and left comments then I visited all my links. All In all for a day in which I didn't leave the fortress it was not bad. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Happy as a dead pig with a new comment? So he wasnt happy?

Imagine he believed that slogan -- nothing runs like a deer. Then again, nothing runs like a deer.

A Comment in the Hand is worth two comments on other blogs. I don't know if that made any sense or not, but it is my contribution to "Comment Monday" Glad you are feeling better and had a good night.

A wonderful Comment Filled Monday is wished for you.

Dr. John,
It's my first visit but I obey your call to leave a comment. Actually, I am fascinated by the Finnish connection and will return to learn more. Keep well and God bless.

Too many comments spoil the blog?

A comment a day keeps the doctor away?

Just kidding , Doc.

Have a great day! :)

Hi Dr. John!

Thank you for the kind reference to my site. I like reading your stuff, there's a lot to comment about.

You are correct, there is indeed a shortage of pastors, but there is never a shortage of ambassadors or missionaries. For anyone who is a follower of Christ, then "tag, you're it!"

A thirty year old John Deere? A little baling wire and ball-peen hammer and that baby's back on the road! (well, for a little while anyway)

Have a blessed day.

Glad to hear you are feeling better...

Better to have commented and lost than never have commented at all.

Take care of yourself!!

i'm beyond happy that you are feeling so well. it makes all well in the world.

i have truly enjoy how many have joined you in making up more 'comments' saying. it is a lot of fun i'm sure to come up with them, and to read them.
i think we all agree that any one wanting to research Finenglish must be an interesting and smart and fun gal. i'm sure she will fit right in. i'm glad everyone appreciates the Pastor. and i'm happy for Charlie and his tractor..
i hope you are dreaming away and happily resting..God Bless and take care. hugs.

G'day Dr John

I was going to make a comment on Halley's Comment, but I realise it's almost Wednesday, here in Australia, so no comment.

Actually I dropped by to tell you (my name is Pam)...I was able to get a blog up and running and have posted up some pictures of our farm life in Australia...with comments on the photos..way, way underneath.

I am sorry your health is not the best at times, hopefully my link will come up here for you to see some Aussie bush life. :)
Regards from Pam
