Pictures of the WEEK

@@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and Vernon Maki wants to make history– Old Vernon Bobsled Maki told Eino , this morning, that he intends to make Pigeon Falls history and be the first man from Pigeon Falls to ride a bull in the rodeo. Bobsled , you remember, got his name by trying out for the Olympic Bobsled team. He might have made it too if he hadn’t lost control on that last curve and shot out of the run and in to that tree. By the time he could walk again without crutches the Olympic tryouts were long over. Now he is going to ride a bull.
To get ready he has been riding a barrel stretched between four ropes. His son, Pavo, and friends have been pulling the ropes and trying to spill him while he practices holding on to the rope with one hand and not touching himself or the bull( barrel) with the other. He has been dumped into the hay a number of times but he thinks now he is ready. He wanted to try one of those mechanical bulls but the Fly Inn doesn’t have one and he couldn’t find a place near Pigeon Falls that did. The Fly Inn said that it doesn’t have the room and if it did it would be afraid to put one in for fear of a lawsuit if somebody gets hurt.
Eino reminded Bobsled of the two broken legs that he suffered when he last tried to get into the record books but Bobsled this time he is sure he can do it.

Today's Link--A Wayward Soul- She shares with us the start of a new garden- Leave a Dr. John bulb in the comment for another Friday chance.
In the morning Betty, Pennie, Patrick, Curtis and the boys went off to a place for the boys to play. I worked in the garage. They came back and got me to go to the movie Fantastic Four. It was the last screen in a theater with fourteen screens and it was a long walk. I used up a good part of a small oxygen tank getting there. In the middle of the picture I had to go to the bathroom which was on the other end of the theater. I made it to the bathroom but there was no way I could get back to the screen. That's when the ticket lady said I could bring in my scooter. So Pennie and Betty got the scooter and pushed it in , putting it in neutral. I got on but when I turned the key we got beeps and no go. So they pushed me back to the screen. The picture was not that great. Afterward I came home. The scooter wouldn't run because they left it in neutral . When we got home it worked fine.Poor Curtis lost his wallet. I took a nap. Some man called and found Curtis's wallet so Pennie and Curtis went to get it. What a day!Then they moved us from one side of the duplex to the other. Now I am going to take a bath and have a breathing treatment.

Is the rodeo coming to Pigeon Falls or is Bobsled Maki going to the rodeo.

BTW, how come there was no celebration after Tommy UK saved Pigeon Falls from the Blue Plague?

Hehehe, the photos of you and Sylvester and Fred Flintstone are classic. But I must ask, in the photo beside Sylvester the Puddy Cat... did you just swallow Tweety Bird?
