Why do I blog?
Saying for the day- Soemtimes it is better not to tell the truth.
The writer of “ Patterns of Ink” has raised the question” Why do bloggers blog?” He has come up with a well balanced explanation that is well worth reading.
It forced me to think of why I blog. Until now I have kept this a secret. I have not even told my children. But today I have decided to reveal all to you.
It was a bit more than two years ago. I was sitting on the dock out at the Church camp. The water was calm , the day was beautiful. Suddenly a hand came up out of the water with a golden computer keyboard. A voice said “ You were born to blog. It is your destiny”. I respond “ Voice, I am too old to Log”. The arm with the golden keyboard begins to shake. I think it is getting tired.
” Not log! BLOG! You moronic dock sitter”, the Voice again.
“Do I get the keyboard? What is blog?” I respond.
Voice “Seek help from the great Patrick who blogs already.”
Me “ Couldn’t I ask the lesser Peter”
Voice-” Go to Blogger its all explained there”
So it began. The great journey into blogging. Sometimes when I look back I think it must have been a dream. But then there is that rusted , gold colored keyboard I got from the lake. I have it hidden in a box in the back of the closet.
I blog because it is my destiny. The Voice said so.
@@@@ News From Pigeon Falls-The little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life goes on as usual.– The dragon flew up and down main street today as if to say this town is mine. Nothing tried to stop him. Mrs. Trumble has decided that if the council won’t let her bring dragon slayer into town then they deserve what they get so she sat in her office and sulked. The dragon carried its weapon as if expecting to run into the poltergeist.
Pastor Moe is so sure that the poltergeist is gone he has been stopping in to Nancy’s every day for coffee. This is making some of his people unhappy who think he should be spending more time visiting and drinking coffee in their houses like Pastor Marvel did. Pastor Moe seems to think that that kind of visiting serves no good purpose so he doesn’t do much of it.
Petrovich came out of his study long enough to rent out one of his furnished apartments. He hasn’t had much luck with those. He still has three that aren’t rented. One wonders if he can find a dribblet about a building being empty and staying empty.
Most of the snow is now gone from Pigeon Falls. People are looking at flower catalogues and plans are being made for summer flowers. The big thing this year is finding flowers the deer won’t eat. They found out last year that some of the flowers that the catalogue said the deer wouldn’t eat they ate anyway. The deer don’t read catalogues.

I had a rough day. My stomach is really upset. I did some blogging. I saw some of my soaps. I did a lot of sleeping. Betty went to Bible study. While she was gone the dog figured out how to open the door to its cage and it came to jump on me. I put it outside and it really wanted to come back in. When Betty came home she went out and played with it. Now I need a breating treatment.
