It's All About Me

Saying for the Day: Information is better than misinformation.

Thursday’s blog is all about me. If you have questions about Dr. John leave them in the comment and I will try to answer them in the weeks to come.

Today I thought I would share with you all the jobs I ever had in my working days.

Counselor Bay Cliff Health Camp– Two Summers

Deckhand on Great Lakes Ore Boat– Two summers

Santa Claus for Montgomery Wards –One Christmas Season

College Math Teacher – one year

Private Academy Math Teacher – One Semester

Dishwasher in Seminary Kitchen– Two years

Pastor – 40 years

Debate Coach– Fifteen Years

And that’s all about me for today.

@@@@New From Pigeon Falls– The little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and the White Star Rises– Mayor Trumble met with Eino yesterday to talk about the people who bought the old McGregor place. That’s the place at the very end of Darkwood Road. It’s so far out in the woods you almost have to get lost to find it. It was bought by some group that call themselves The White Star Rising. Eino thinks it might be a cult.
In any case they seem to have lots of money. They have built huge new buildings. Brought in a rather large heard of cows and plowed two of the fields. It wasn’t that much a farm when old man McGregor owned it. Eino has one of their brochures were they claim to be a place where a person can get back to nature and shake whatever addiction controls them. In the process they can meet the one true God above all other Gods.
They don’t come into Pigeon Falls accept to pick up supplies from the train station. They all wear these black undertaker outfits that make you nervous. The rumor is that they are working at setting up their own private airfield and soon won’t need the town at all. They are also , supposedly, working with Dr. Fortress to get a railroad siding so their supplies can come directly to the camp.
There is now a big chain metal fence around the property and people from the outside are not welcome.
Eino is afraid that it might be a camp for one of those militant or racist groups.
Mrs. Trumble said that they just have to wait and see.

Today's Link-Pursuance of Truth- A bit of art a bit of poetry- The poor girl gets no comments. Leave a Dr. John in the comment.
I worked in the garage this morning. The man came and finished the walk in tub so I get to take a bath tonight. Peter and family arrived . They just came back from Disney World . They had all kinds of pictures to show us. They will take their dog home with them. Now I need a breathing treatment.

You've had quite a varied career path, Dr. J. I bet you were an amazing debate coach.

My, the strange things that do go on in Pigeon Falls. Is there yet another Burmuda Triangle like spot on Earth? Is Pigeon Falls in the center of it? It would explain a lot.

Isnt there a White Star church on the way to Door County? From what I have heard, the one in Pigeon Falls may not be too different.

What I would like to know is why hasnt the national media caught on to the happenings in Pigeon Falls? Or maybe things are even too strange there for the National Enquirer. No alien babies born there yet?

I am surprised that Dr. Fortress is being cooperative with such a mysterious group.

Whatever the compound is, I am sure it's owners put up the walls to help protect them from the weirdness that is Pidgeon Falls.

What an interesting life you have had with all these different jobs. I'd be interested in how you became a Pastor, what made you want to do the work of the Lord.

A blessed day is wished for you and Betty.

Dr. John, I think it's fascinating that you were a deckhand on an ore boat. And as "the old fart" asked, what was it in your life that made you become a pastor?

A full, rich life.. keep the list going. Add blog group leader or online spiritual advisor. I love the Sunday posts.

The dishwashing job was probably your favorite job. To see all those dirty dishes come out spotless.. you can see the results of your labor immediately.

Have a good weekend.
