Pictures of the WEEK

Our last week in pictures.
We start with Maggie's last day in Doggy Kindergarten

The class did seem to help a BIT.

@@@@@News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my garage where the trains still run , dragons fly, and McDonald's wants to build a restaurant.- Some of the local business men have been talking to McDonald's about building a restaurant in Pigeon Falls. They want to build it at the end of the railroad station. Then it could serve local people and everybody coming in by train. It would be a place to have that last cup of coffee before the train comes in. Nancy says there is no need for it. She is close enough to the station so they can have their cup of coffee with her. But the group points out she closes too early and opens too late for the railroad crowd. ( Not that it's really a crowd)
Eino says part of the town's appeal is its old buildings . A McDonald's would stand out like a sore thumb. It just wouldn't fit in. But the group thinks they could design it to look like an old railroad station with the arches on the door. It would add to the old time charm.
The town council met but couldn't come to any decision . Part of the council wanted to welcome the new business with open arms as it will increase the tax base. Another part felt that it was a big city thing and they didn't need it. So they did what any good political body does when faced with a difficult decision , they tabled it to the next meeting.

Today's Link-Dazed and Confused from Here- See a dress you would never buy. Leave a Dr. John in the comment.
Everybody over slept this morning. I was late getting the entry onto the blog. We went out to Old Country Buffet for lunch to celebrate Bree;s birthday. then we cam4e back and had birthday cake here. Peter spent the afternoon watching Arena Football. I did some research on the Pope's rece4nt statement. Betty and Pennie napped and Bree built with the Lego blocks. Now the four of them have gone again to Life Fest. I need a breathing treatment.

Is the other doggy a sister or brother of Maggie? Congratulations to Maggie on graduating from Kindygarden. =O)

Oh yes, every town needs a McDonalds. It's American as their deep fried Apple Pie.

McDonalds coffee specials are only 69 cents. Nancy's is still cheaper. She would do okay. Pigeon Falls just needs to make sure the building fits in with the rest of the town.
