Pictures of the WEEK

Saying for the Day: One picture is worth a thousand words.

Here are a few pictures from our week.

@@@@News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and the rodeo starts today– This afternoon at 3:30 or4 close to it old Bobsled Maki gets to ride a bull. He has signed all the legal papers that say that he won’t hold the rodeo responsible if he gets broken into a zillion pieces ( that should have been enough to get him to quit right there). He purchased some insurance good only for that one ride and lied through his teeth about his previous experience ( riding a barrel in the barn doesn’t count). In fact he has done such a good job that they have assigned him one of the worst bulls in the bunch. Of course he has until this afternoon to back out.
Bobsled Maki, however, is not the topic of today’s gossip down at Nancy’s café. No the topic today is women preachers and to be more exact Pastor Joan Castle. For the most part what they are saying I not very nice. The kindest remark was by some guy who felt that it would be nice to have somebody good to look at in the pulpit for a change. Over and over Nancy has heard that women should keep silence in the church. God doesn’t want a woman preacher. After listening to all the gossip Nancy is rather glad that she isn’t Pastor Castle. In fact she would give her no chance of being called if it wern’t for the Moe factor. It seems that the monster in the building might be worse than the monster coming. People know they can’t stand Moe and Pastor Joan is an unknown quantity. If she does well at the interview and trial sermon. She just might get called despite the “ theological” objections. But if she is called she has to survive Last Lutheran.
Will Bobsled survive the bull? Will Pastor Joan survive Last Lutheran? Will Pigeon Falls survive Petrovich and his dribblets? And of course is Tommy UK really the undertaker’s kid?

Today's Link-Step by Step- This blog informs of a 40 year old marrying a sixteen year old and asking your opinion. Leave an opinion and throw in a Dr. John.
There were three things I wanted to do today. I did none of them. My wife ( she who controls my oxygen) decided we should go through the stuff we brought from Pennie's side of the Duplex. Most of it got thrown away. But it took a long time. Now I need a breathing treatment.

I agree very much with your saying. Pictures well taken need no words. Great photos.
Just dropping by to see how you and Betty are and wishing you the best.

Still waiting for your photos to load. (Having internet problems with Comcast for the past few weeks)

Poor Joan Castle. It's not so much a man/woman thing - than it is to decide who can serve the Lord and the needs of the church best at this time.

They should pray and reflect upon that. Let God decide. =O)

Dr. John, I needed a good laugh today, and the picture of "your pool now" gave me a **chuckle**.

Oh, dear... Ha!

hope you get your pool up soon so you can use it! We have a pond but so far no one's been in it yet this season, other than to ride around in the boat. The pond is spring fed so it never does get very warm.

Oh my, I guess I won't ask if you are enjoying your pool. We went to a community garage sale this morning. Didn't buy a thing, but saw two yards with nice railroads running around water features and thought of you and Pigeon Falls. Hope you and Betty enjoy your weekend.

Have fun getting that pool up. We had to have professionals come out to the inlaws. We learned our lesson trying to set up a small one last year...and I think everything probably tastes better than celery.

Dr. John, that's quite an age difference. A 40 year old and a 16 year old. You don't say which gender is which age. If the 40 year old, Dr. John, is male, nada nada nada. What could the male be thinking robbing the cradle like that, Dr. John? The male will old and worn out, and the gal, Dr. John, will want to party, party, and party some more, Dr. John. Such utter foolishness, Dr. John.

Thanks for the pictures. The pool made me chuckle. Somehow I think it's not affecting you in quiote the same way.
