#### News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal The churches of Pigeon Falls were well attended yesterday. People came to thank God that they were back from whatever strange place they had been. Even Herman Hanson almost came. His wife was so happy but at the last minute he changed his mind and stayed home.
Pastor Joan reminded them that as long as their life was built on the rock, Jesus Christ, it didn’t matter where they were God was with them.
It was a nice warm day yesterday and a lot of families had picnic lunches up at the Lake of he Loon’s Park. It was almost as if the previous week had never happened.
In the middle of the afternoon the town dragon and her little ones flew over the lake. There were a lot of cameras and a lot of pictures taken. Somebody said something about entering a picture of the dragon and little ones in some kind of internet contest called ”From the Ground Up”. But others just wanted pictures to remind them of how perfect a day it was.
Tommy UK and the Tommy Club continued to search for clues as to what was in the building that exploded. Eino called his friend at Homeland security but they said that hadn’t found any metal piece with the letters MELI on them. Eino told them to keep going through the scrap it should be there.
Petrovich says that the entire incident proves what a great seer Alexis Grengicoff was. His advice saved Pigeon Falls. He was adding the event to his museum display in the new town museum.

Today's Link-Flip Flop Floozie-Just an interesting blog
My oxygen read low normal this morning. I rejoiced. I thanked God for all the people who prayed for me. I know it may not stay there but today no oxygen tank. I added Sunday's sermon to the St. Mark's website and updated the Bible study. I arranged to go into the Church office tomorrow to show the secretary how to use the E.S.T.H.E.R. blog. I watched a little TV. I visited all my links. I went to upgrade my link list and discovered I've lost my link list program. I can not remember what I stored it under. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Oh! That Floozie is one of my BEST friends! Good choice!

LOL! If you think YOU have too much age, how do ya think MOSES felt? Huh? 5:00 is waaaaaaay too early... Thanks for link!

Now... I got thinkin' about this MELI thing again... Maybe it was upside down as well as backwards... maybe it's really I73W -- could be the road less traveled? Herman is a really tough cookie isn't he? Just like my husband! Alexis Grengicoff? I've got more homework to do... *sigh*

I've learned a bit more about you Dr John, Like quilly I'd rather read other's memes than do one of my own.

No word yet but I will be a bit more patient.

Blessings to you and Betty for a wonderful day

I did not know you liked carrots. Your quiet time sounds a lot like mine. Never saw NCIS.

Now I have commented so I can go now...
