#### News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal. There was a great deal of excitement at the Paul Bunyan restaurant in Elkhart on Saturday night. The FLYFAST snowmobile team was eating the famous all you can eat meal when Tommy UK came in wearing the rfirst place medal from the previous week. Barth Wader went balistic. He accused Tommy UK of breaking into his room and stealing the medal. He told him he was going to beat him to a pulp. Tommy said the medal wasn’t his. That he stole it. Wader said it was his by right and he could never prove he stole it. That’s when the sheriff came in and arrested Barth. It seems Tommy UK was wearing a wire. It also seems that the medal he was wearing was a copy not the original. The entire incident gave the sheriff probable cause for a warrant. A search of Barth’s room produced the original medal. Barth then confessed to having stolen the medal but denied setting up the fake murder in the sauna. So that mystery may yet be unsolved.
Luke Snow Slider won the big Easter morning race , racing for the Polaris team. Tommy UK was there to cheer him on. He was supposed to be the acolyte at the Easter service at Last Lutheran but he had Tammy fill in for him.

Today's Link- Postings from Prairie Hill- - A really great Easter Sermon
It seemed so quiet here today with no kids. The poor dog looked so lost. I spent the morning getting the Church website up to date. added some videos of the Easter music. In the afternoon we worked in the basement counting and taking picture of EZ track to sell on eBay. I think in another three weeks we should be done with eBay. Now I need a breathing treatment.

I have done your 'meme' as an e-mail thing. It had pretty much the same questions. I think the best way to get to know me is by reading my blog because it shows what I believe, and that is really 'who' I am.

That was a lot of excitement at the Paul Bunyan resturant. I suppose it will be a very populat place for a while now.
I hope your Resurrection day celebration was as nice as mine.
Have a wonderful week.

It's late and I won't be able to do this MEME but I liked reading yours. I, too, cry at sad (or happy) movies. I just watche "The Pursuit of Happyness" [sic] for the 2nd or 3rd time and it still gets me to see the dedication of that father. Will Smith and his son do an excellent job.

"What is under your bed? Monster or elves. I’m afraid to look."

I have cute little dust bunnies under mine.

Great meme!

I like this meme very much and I will do it for my next post. Probably tomorrow. Today I am busy getting may documents ready. I have an appointment with my income tax inspector.

For number 1 of your answers, I beat you. I get up generally between 4 and 5. Suffering from "senile bed escape". :-)

Thanks for the comment Dr John, and for the link to the St John Chrysostom homily for Easter, a great sermon indeed! As you will see from my latest blog entry, its taken a while to get here due to lots of different things going on - good to be back, though!
