Leave a comment Monday
Saying for the Day: A comment given is a comment treasured.
Here it is “Leave a Comment Monday” and I have run out of wonderful old sayings to bring into the internet age. I can’t think of a single new saying to fill this entry either. I am sure you don’t want to read anymore of my begging and pleading for comments. By this point you know I am a comment addict and need a Monday fix. So what should I do.
Well I though since its all about comments I might comment on some blogs I read last week, two blogs in particular. In each case the blog writers had observed Sea Gulls and gave us stories with a moral based on the birds.
The first one I read was in Kaleidoscope and was called the Sea Gull’s Sermon . If you want to read it you can go to Kaleidscope and scroll down( unless I figured out how to pop you right there.) to the Monday June 8 entry.
The second was in Patterns of Ink and was entitled “ Take in Life”. You can read it by going to Patterns of Ink and scrolling down to his Tuesday June 19 entry.
These two blogs together reminded me of when I worked on the ore boats. Deckhands hated Sea Gulls because of the mess they made on the deck which we had to clean up. We would always complain while eating. So the cook decided to fix it for us. He began feeding the Gulls little pieces of bread. He threw them in the air and they would catch them. This went on for a long time. Then he took and soaked the bread in the hottest sauce he could find. When the Gull grabbed that it shot directly to the water. Now if there is a moral to this story it’s “ Don’t poop on my deck or you’ll be sorry”.
It is “leave a comment Monday” so leave those beautiful comments. That includes you quick reads from Blog Explosion.
@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my garage where the trains still run, the dragons fly, and music hurts.-Mrs. Periwinkle, Herman’s Mother, was in to Nancy’s coffee shop and said that her son’s practicing is driving her nuts. He is now practicing two hours a day and he plays more wrong notes that right ones. Worse he keeps coming up to her and his father and playing one of the songs from the upcoming recital and asking what they think. Well in reality all but one of the songs are really bad. He keeps saying he is going to make them so proud at the recital. The Periwinkle’s can’t ask him to quit since he seems to love his accordion so much but they really can’t take much more of this. Why can’t he be like other boys and just do his hour and then run off and play. Last night he went two and one half hours. Of bad notes there I no end.
Nancy suggested that they might consider some other instrument but Mrs. Periwinkle said that the accordion was what his grandfather played and they want him to follow in grandpa’s footsteps. Their only hope is that with all that practice he is bound to get better.
Old Bobsled Maki is reveling in his new found glory. Rodeo Today ( the magazine) sent a reporter to interview him. He showed them his practice barrel and they took pictures. One suspects that would be bull riders across the country will be buying barrels. He is the number one rider after all. If this is how he got his start it has to work Bobsled is getting fifty free copies to give to friends and relatives. His picture is on the cover sitting on the barrel. He is so proud.
The members of Last Lutheran stopping in to Nancy’s this morning were all afraid of next Sunday’s meeting with Pastor Joan. They just don’t like the idea of a woman Pastor. The only dissident voice came from Stanely Ash who felt they needed to accept whoever God sends them. They survived Pastor Moe and they can survive Pastor Castle. That’s not exactly a ringing endorsement but it is a voice of reason.
Will Old Bobsled survive his fame ? Will Herman survive his recital. Will Pastor Joan survive next Sunday’s encounter with Last Lutheran? And is Tommy UK really the undertaker’s kid?
Today's Link-The Creative Spirit- A meditation for St. John's Day ( a day by any other name is still the same)- Leave a DR. John in the comment.
The deck is on and looks good. I will try to have a picture on Saturday. The plumber failed to show so there is still a little work to be done on the walk in tub but we can use it and have. It's great. Did some work in the basement but there is so much left to be done. Both my sister and Betty's sister called today. Betty's sister and husband are coming to visit on Wednesday. I got the bad news that the a good friend of mine died in his sleep last night. I had a note from my Bishop in my e-mail. There were five of us from my high school youth group that got ordained and now I am the only one left. Well I need a breathing treatment.
