Which one is really “true” ?

.@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal. This coming Saturday is the big Christmas Craft Sale in Pigeon Falls. People have been making things all year and now they get a chance to sell them. There will be tables in the fellowship halls of all the churches and the Masonic Hall. There will be the widest variety of crafts that you can imagine from birdhouses to carpets made on a loom. Every year people come from all over to buy early Christmas gifts. The MP&CL Railroad even runs a craft special . You can shop and get to ride a train. Now that is a deal.
This year Mrs. Helmi Anderson has created some little stuffed dragons that are really cute. Though she has made over forty of them they will be gone by noon. Dragons sell well in Pigeon Falls.
Eino’s son Robert has made a huge cardboard dragon and is selling pictures of people standing with it. It sort of looks like the real thing. He even has a sword they can pretend they are fighting the dragon.
The Methodist ladies, of course, will be selling the ever popular pasty. The woman at Last Lutheran are providing coffee at no charge to crafters and buyers alike. Pastor Joan insists this is a chance to serve the community.
It promises to be a grand Saturday if there is no blizzard.

Today's Link-Burned by the Man- You can't comment without registering but you may never get another chance to see what cocaine does to a corn field.
WE spent all morning wrapping extra long G scale railroad cars I sold on eBay. Got a call from Peter that my granddaughter was in the hospital . Her asthma had acted up and she might have a virus. Given the condition of my lungs we didn't dare go and visit her.Then we took the three packages and Margarets prize from last Friday and went to the Post Office. After that it was off to the grocery store and groceries for the week. In the afternoon I sorted G scale train cars in the basement. Brought up two, photographed them and listed them on eBay. Now I need a breathing treatment.

I'm guessing #4.

The big craft show sounds like it's going to be great, but then we are talking about Pigeon Falls and there's bound to be some excitement.

Funny when you see them listed like that, the most obvious could be false, the least likely could be true

I'll go for seven too - something about stealing their souls, versus all that black magic and mumbo jumbo 'effigies' from the caribbean?

As for Clinophobia
if you'd said Dental Clinics I could have believed it to be true

Chewing gum invented by a dentist would be my guess. Thanks for the encouraging words in your comment today Dr. John. Things are coming together nicely. I'll fill in more towards the end of the week.

i'm sorry to hear about Brea. i hope she is back at home breathing well.

i hope they can get her asthma under control once after all. any cold can bring on a nasty attack as she is experiencing now.

you know i know about the lungs thingy and i feel for you both. my love to you and yours..

God Bless. xo
