Saturday- Our Pictures

Didn't take any pictures last week so I reached back into the archives for pictures of my son Peter and his daughter Bree when they were little.

@@@@@@ News From Pigeon Falls– the little town in my basement where trains still run, dragons fly, and the Variety Show goes on– Last night was the second night of the Pigeon Falls Pigeon Days Variety Show. Aside from some problem with the lighting it went off very well. Toivo and Eino were a big hit even though they didn’t do Tuna Casserole . They promised to do it tonight. Tommy UK came at his tap dancing with a bit more enthusiasm. The Pasty Ladies from the Methodist Church came wearing cowboy hats and carrying lassoes . They sang a song from some old Methodist hymnal called “ I was a Jesus cowboy in the Holy Ghost Corral. “ It’s no wonder that song didn’t make the new hymnal in any church. Old Mrs. Miller sang another old time ballad “ Mommy, when I get to heaven will the Angels play a game of ball with me.” Again there wasn’t a dry eye in the place. Vicky East sang her new song “ Unless” after each chorus the lights dimmed a little more until after the last “unless” the theater was in total darkness. It seemed as dark as it could be and you could hear the sighs of relief as the lights came back on. The whole program was over two hours long but nobody complained. It was better than Thursday nights performance and that was one of the best ever. Now everybody is looking forward to tonight’s final performance.
Petrovich continues to hope that her will hear from his friends in Russia before it is too late. They are going through piles of manuscripts trying to find that driblet.
Will Petrovich get the rest of the DRIBLET ? Will Vicky East be singing “Unless” when the curtain comes down on Pigeon Falls? Does Grandma Miller have any more sad ballads ? Will Toivo and Eino ever do Tuna Casserole? And of course is Tommy UK , the tap dancer, really the undertaker’s kid?

Today's Link-Your One Stop Shop for Amusement-The top 20 OxyMorons- leave a Dr. John in the comment for an extra chance in the Friday drawing.
Good day today. Went Shopping. Ate at Wendy's. Got to ride my scooter in Pick and Save. I feel alive. Came home and helped Betty set up a new blog since blogger seems to have eaten the old one. Her new blog is called Betty's News.
She has her first entry in it. Now I need a breathing treatment.

I have a feeling that once Toivo and Eino finally do Tuna Casserole, I will never look at tuna casserole the same again.

I have the feeling that at some point in Peter's youth you wished upon him the parent's curse, "I hope you have a kid just like you someday?!" Isn't it interesting how that curse most often turns out to be a blessing?

I love those photos especially the 3rd one on the right with that cute baby on a cute little chair. Looking at old photos gives you a little twitch in the heart doesn't it?
