@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and nothing exciting happens.- Pigeon Falls has seen one dull day after another since the drunken moose showed up in the fourth of July parade. Of course there were a few drunken fights at the Fly Inn . But nobody pays much attention to those. In the end a few things might get broken but nobody gets hurt.
There were a few stray dogs that showed up at Grandma Maki's house because her dog Nallie is in heat. Nallie is in a pen where they can't get at her but that doesn't keep them from trying. Pigeon Falls doesn't have a dog catcher so its up to the part time constable to enforce the dog laws. Grandma Maki called him but he said he was busy with some human problems and couldn't come. So she went down to the hardware store and bought the highest powered B-B gun they had. Then she shot those dogs in the rump. She doesn't think they will be back. Mrs. Maki's kids have told her that she should have her dog operated on but she won't do that to Nallie.
One of those stray dogs was seen chasing a deep down the main street and then being chased by that same deer up the main street. It looked like the deer wasn't going to put up with being chased anymore. That was a little excitement but not much.
People , looking for excitement, stop in at Nancy's Cafe and hope that the poltergeist is active. But it hasn't done much since the Fourth.
It seems Pigeon Falls is just your average little dull town.

Today's Link-Daily Fun Stuff- One weird picture. Leave a Dr. John as the kid may need a DR.

Now we wait for Betty and the drawing.

Betty has arrived.

Betty has drawn.

And the winner is

Ginger's Mom -

Congratulations. Please indicate if you want today's PRICELESS PRIZE or a door and if a door which door.

Ginger's Mom picked door number two. Behind door number two today was Tigger ( A Winnie the Pooh Collectible) and a beautiful set of wind chimes. Behind door number one were six Christmas Pop-its. Congratulations again to Ginger's Mom. May there always be a soft breeze for the chimes.
Had a good day. Betty and I went to Pick and Save in the morning. Then I worked a bit in the garage. Now Betty, Peter, Pennie, and Bree have gone to LifeFest. I need a breathing treatment.

Stray dogs showing up is terrible. I had quite a few when Miss Baggy Pants was in heat and I tried so hard but couldn't even take her out for a walk without fighting with a stray. It was terrible. =O(

A Boxer of all dogs won her courtship unfortunately. Now we have what can be called a "Box-ette" (Basset Hound/Boxer)

Average and dull? Not Pigeon Falls. I'm guessing it's more like the lull before the storm.

There's nothing dull about Pigeon Falls. I'd really not get chased up the street by a deer.

Funny thing about dogs,
is they never seem to know how small they are
in fact the smaller they are the more frenetic their bark when another dog goes past ...
sometimes the other dog is so big could snap the little dog in half within its jaws, or tread on it and squash it under its large paw

Yet the little dog with its frenetic bark - no wonder the deer has had enough, and decided to turn and chase the gog up the main street.

But I swear, I know I know I shouldn't swear
But I swear sometimes when I look into a dogs eyes - I see a vestige of a human being - maybe there is some truth in all those hindu and native american reincarnation myths, and people come back as animals. Karma depending on their past lives.

And you cannot deny that some dogs behave humans, and some humans behave like dogs - even old dogs.
I think Disney might have been onto something with his cartoons giving animated animals human traits, or rather giving humans animal characters

Dr. John,
I have a feeling you've had this happen to you before, but it's new to me. I promise not to do it again but...
You've been tagged!
Some of your readers have already been tagged so good luck. I guess I'm supposed to direct you to my blog (The "tagged" post is below the one you read today) and then your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to read the "rules" and write 8 random things about yourself. :)

Dr. John, my Weekly Drawing prizes arrived safely. We used the electronic match right away to light our sented candle. It arrived the day after the barbecue though, so I have burnt fingertips. As to the cross -- this campus is populated by scientists. I think it is the perfect place for a cross.
