Fast Forward from Ralph 16
Saying for the Day:-The old songs are the best songs unless you are young.
My friend Ralph forwards things to me and every Wednesday I share one of those forwards with you.( Disclaimer– due to the negative reaction to last week’s forward I feel it necessary to say that the views expressed in the forward are those of Ralph and not necessarily of this blog.)
And now Forward with Ralph

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-the little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and it isn’t summer yet– This morning people got up to discover there was a frost last night. The newly planted flowers for which people had such great expectations all died. The old timers warned them but it was so warm that they decided to take a chance. They lost. Frost in May in Pigeon Falls is a way of life. If one must plant early then one must also watch the weather reports and cover the flowers on the nights when the frost is expected.
One suspects that the reason places start selling flowers when it first gets warm is that they know people will plant them and they will die and so they will have to come back and buy some more. In fact they make them look so good that you just have to buy them and plant them. You just can’t plant until Memorial Day. One year there was even frost in July but that was before Global Warming. There was snow in July that year as well.
There are flowers in The Dream, beautiful flowers. Somebody remarked that they as pretty as funeral flowers. Everywhere in Oiseaux Morts there are beautiful flowers. Flowers like that never grow in Pigeon Falls, well hardly ever. But since the residents of The Dream are worried about the Blue Plaque the flowers are all but ignored. Except by the children who love to pick them and give them to their mothers. A fresh bouquet is placed every day at the monument to the dragon that saved them from the invading army. Every morning the bouquet is gone and people believe the dragon comes and eats it. But nobody has ever seen that happen.
Tomorrow Petrovich says he will have an announcement concerning The Dream.

Anoither day in the Fortress. I blogged a little. Played some computer games. Watched my soaps. Started getting the phones ready for the new house. I unpacked them and plugged them in. Looked out and saw Maggie holding the hopp and wondered if she was trying to get Betty to jump through it. Now I need a breathing treatment.
