@@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life goes on as normal– Today Holly Risingsun Niemi goes to Escanaba to enter the Miss UP contest. Holly’s mother has a PHD and kept her maiden name so Holly has two last names. She can be Risingsun like her father or Niemi like her mother. At thimes that leads to confusion in newspaper reports of events. Since Holly was really the runner up no one really expects her to win in Escanaba.
The Legend of Queen Polly keeps growing. Now the sins she confessed are being added. Of course, nobody really knows what they are or even if she confessed any but that doesn’t stop the stories. So far she has confessed to sending that nude picture to the internet. Having even worse nude pictures in a secret drawer . She burned those after the confession. Having sex with her boy friend. Stealing from Kivi and Maki’s when she clerked there. Letting the air out of Petrovich’s tires. Almost anything that went wrong in Pigeon Falls she has confessed to. Every day the legend grows as people add their own little bit to it and pass it along.
Will Polly ever get her reputation back? Will Holly win the Miss UP contest? Will she pick a last name. Will the legend keep growing? What happened to the White rabbit? And of course Is Tommy UK really the undertaker’s kid?

Today's Link- Finland for thought- Some thoughts about Finnish and American police. Leave a Dr. John in the comment to get an extra chance in Friday's Priceless drawing.
Busy, busy day today. I got a late start on the blog because the grandchildren were sleeping in the computer room. Then I worked with Patrick and Curtis to cut the pieces for the upper portions of the train tables. I then visited all my links. Now I need a breathing treatment.

You Finns eat some weird stuff! Though it's good to know the eggs come from live chickens.

Holly Risingsun Niemi must be Catholic as she also goes by Mary. (do they get an extra one at Baptism or Communion?)

Poor Polly Stir. So someone let the air out of Petrovich's tires? Ha!

There must be no Finns where I live. Clearly they know how to make roads --- straight and with shoulders!

I really enjoyed the video. You know I have a thing for paved roads, and the music was good, too.

Thanks, Dr. John!
