Christmas before Haloween
Saying for the Day- From a commercial point of view, if Christmas did not exist it would be necessary to invent it. Katharine Whitehorn
It used to be that Christmas displays showed up in stores around Thanksgiving. Then it moved slowly toward Halloween. It would seem that just after the fake pumpkins were removed the fake Christmas trees would be on display. It is on the move again.
Yesterday I was in Menards looking for some lumber and there was a whole section of fake Christmas trees and Christmas tree lights ( the lights weren’t fake). They were right next to the tulip bulbs , my wife wouldn’t let me purchase, which were being cleared out at half price. I haven’t even bought the candy for the trick or treaters yet. They were selling that at Menards too. You can buy two by fours, tiny chocolate bars, tulip bulbs, and Christmas lights all at the same place and at the same time of year.
I , of course, didn’t need to get a tree because I bought one last year in December when they cleared them out for the big Valentine’s Day display.
Isn’t life wonderful ?
@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and change is in the air.– Well the Lightning Lady sang last night. She sang both songs. She has a pretty good voice for a wrestler. As she was singing one could feel a warm breeze blowing across the town square and by the time she finished the temperature was up to five above zero. People were so happy to feel the warm air they cried.
This morning the temperature in Pigeon Falls is up to thirty two degrees and it didn’t snow. The first pigeon has returned and the morning milk train reported seeing a couple of deer. Pigeon Falls may well be on its way back to normal. The expectation is that the temperature should reach that of the surrounding area by noon today. That means they will be at forty five of fifty degrees.
Eino says that the singing had nothing to do with the change. Whatever conditions had caused the strange weather ended and it was just a coincidence that she was singing at that time. It is not reasonable to think that a song as bad as that one could influence the weather.
Mrs. Trumble thanked the Lighting Lady whose real name is Doris Wilson . The entire incident made the national news as filler. This is good for Lightning Lady’s wrestling career. You can be sure that it will be exploited in future adds.
The odd thing is that Mrs. Trumble has a niece called Doris Wilson, her sister’s kid. But that, of course, is just a coincidence.
Petrovich says it proves that Alexis Grengicoff was a real prophet. His driblets really did foresee the future. He has gone back to working on his biography of Alexis Grengicoff . People are hopeful he will find no more driblets that apply to Pigeon Falls.

Very good breathing day. I worked in the basement most of the day. I finished getting legs on two little tables. Betty and Pennie came and helped and we rearranged thew train table setup. It is coming closer to the vision. Most of the day Betty and Pennie worked at Pennie’s side cleaning. Pennie works tomorrow. We finished up with a game of canasta and I won again. Now I need a breathing treatment.
