@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my garage where the trains still runs, dragons fly, and love is in the air– Despite the poltergeist that plagued her café for a time, despite The Dream, despite the antics of Tommy UK, Nancy is happy. She sings in her coffee shop. Her eyes are alive and seem to glow. Nancy is in love. She and the writer Tommy TW are together now as often as possible. That is not nearly often enough since she is running the shop and he is writing “ Murder in a Small Town”. But he takes coffee breaks at the shop and she spends Sunday afternoons with him and sometimes they go to church together although he isn’t much of a church goer. But they are in love and it is spring. Nancy floats through the day. She isn’t even worried about dying in The Dream. Love is a grand and glorious thing.
Petrovich is not in love and is trying to get the impossible task of finding the right dribblets, translating them into English, and then making sense of them. He is sure that the answer to the problem of The Dream is in the dribblets. All he has to do is dig it out. But he is under a lot of pressure to do it quickly since the Blue Plaque is rapidly moving toward the dream town. But these things can not be hurried.
Aside from The Dream life continues in Pigeon Falls like any small town. The three seniors are taking final exams and getting ready for graduation. If it doesn’t rain it will be outside at the football field. If it does rain it will be in the consolidated gymn. There will be big parties after the graduation. Yes life goes on as normal.
Today's Link- Diary of an Old Cheeser- Jack's back but he's not the American Jack . But it is an interesting read. Leave a Dr. John in comment. Not a Dr. Who but a Dr. John.
Today was my birthday and as birthdays go it was okay. There was no cake, no ballons , except for the ones on the computer, no birthday cards , except for the one from Betty. There was an e-card from Mat and Lillian. Betty made a special roast for lunch which was very good. One set of grandkids and two of my kids wished me a happy birthday, all but one by phone. There was no singing of happy birthday. But it was an okay day. My daughter moved the computer I asked her to move as a gift since we already have far too much stuff. I spent most of the day either working at the new house , trying to get the bed room ready, or blogging. But now it is over and I return to regular days a year older. Now I need a breathing treatmemt.
