45 Years

Link of the Day

Picture of the Day:

The Days Wrap UP
WE went to Church this morning. It was good going with my grandkids and son. The sermon was great. At the coffee afterward they announced our anniversary. Then Pennie took us all out to lunch at Country Buffet. When we got home the kids took over the computer and I spent the day chatting with my two sons and daughter. Peter came down after lunch. Everybody is going home tonight. Now I need a breathing treatment.
News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal.
The Liar’s Club met and had an extended shouting match over what to do about the four way tie. It was decided that putting back in the scores that were dropped wouldn’t be fair. They were dropped for a reason.
They also decided it was unfair to ask the finalists to prepare another story. Besides they wanted to be done with the contest.
So Edgar Fellon suggested they take these ten words from an internet sight. Give them to the finalist today. Then tomorrow each one would have to give a paragraph using those ten words. The paragraphs would then be delivered to the entire Liar’s club. They would then pick the winner. The ten words are invincible, falling leaves, surge protector, two-year-old, fusion, grizzly bear, Jamaica, delivery, popsicle stick and caviar.
Late yesterday over a cup of tea Nancy told Tommy UK what she suspected about Mayor Trumble. Tommy UK said that it sounds reasonable but doesn’t answer two questions if it is true. Why did she quit the movies? Why did she come to live in Pigeon Falls? The mystery is as big as ever.
Will Tommy Uk ever discover the truth about Mrs. Trumble? What is the truth about Mrs. Trumble? Will the Liar’s Club ever get a winner to this year’s contest? Can you make a story with a surge protector and a popsicle stick in one paragraph? And of course is Tommy UK really the undertaker’s kid?

Happy Anniversary, Dr. John & Betty! May this day mirror the love and joy of your lives together. (Dr. John, you need to give lessons to husbands on how to talk to their wives!)

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY you too! You are still as cute together as you were that day! I love seeing your wedding photos - but I especially love the one of you coming out of the church! Such GLEE written all over you both! That is great! 45 years! WOW! I think you're both amazing! Dennis & I are only on 22 and I wonder how we've managed!!! We're both still living though! That's a plus!

The list of words has changed! Surge protector is no longer in there -- because it was one of this past week's words/phrases. So she replaced it with lap top! You probably don't need to tell the 4 writers though... ;)

I've finished my mini challenge for next week. Now I just have to work on the 10 word challenge!

Looking forward to the Liars club meeting tomorrow!

It's the Liar's Club after all. They could lie about who won.

Happy Anniversary.

Dr. John, Happy Anniversary to you and Betty. Goodness, that is so wonderful...!

You look so cute together. No wonder you have lasted all these years. Some couples just look as if they are each other's "other half" and you and Betty definitely look like that!
