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.
