Picture of the Day:

The Days Wrap UP :
First a bit from yesterday. Thanks to your comments I discovered I wasn't weird with my jam and ham sandwiches . I'm just living in the wrong country. I should live in France. Ah! But then I'd have to drink wine. This morning I started a new book. Information in the left side panel. Betty went to Bible study. I brought the St. Mark's website up to date with the August newsletter and calendar. Forgot to mention I had cocoa for breakfast in my Janvangogh cup. Everybody should have one. She is giving a set away and you can find out about it by clicking on the proper side panel. Betty and I put in our two hours in the basement. We finished cutting up the boxes ( made two more bundles) then brought up the five things we are putting on e-Bay next. I tried to visit all the links but at the half way point blogger quit taking comments. Now I need a breathing treatment.

************************

It isn’t Thursday but today we continue our Elf Tale from last Thursday. Surprise!
We left our elf tale about Magearth with the serious problem of magic law number six no longer holding. It seems spontaneous magic was happening on Magearth. For the most part it was an inconvenience since one had to undo whatever was done. A few really bad things did happen. An elephant lost its wings and fell on a poor man standing below crushing him to death. You could give the elephant back its wings but you couldn’t bring the man back to life.
People were quick to set up magic covers over their heads to deflect any falling object and felt rather secure.
That’s when the next problem began. People got sick and the best healers with the greatest spells couldn’t cure them The illnesses had become spell resistant. The healers went back to the original languages and sometimes that worked , at least for a little while. New spells were devised that sometimes worked and sometimes didn’t. But people, elves, fairies, ogres, and all living magic things began to die.
This was much more horrible than you might think. You are used to death but on Magearth very few magic creatures died. The healing spells always cured them. There was no real fear of death because you just didn’t die.
Now, however, all that changed. Each group tried to find some way to handle the new reality.
Humans began to go to the local temple of Reconstruction.
Prior to the Change, for that it is what it was being called, only true believers went to Temple. In a world where you could have anything you wanted by waving your hand( a world without war, poverty, or death ) who needed Temple. But now that world was gone and people turned to the hope of Reconstruction.
According to the Book of Beginnings and Endings which the Creator of all Magic had dictated to Sesom at Ianis when the great need would come mankind would be reconstructed . The Creator would give to mankind the power he had intended from the beginning for them to have. Humans would take their intended place at the top of the magic pyarmid . They would posses power almost equal to that of the Creator, itself.
Every human, even those who weren’t true believers, knew the story. It was told to children by their parents. It appeared in little magic books.It had even been the subject of a Dreamscope, one of the highrest rated Dreamscopes ever.
It told of how The Great Creator of Magic brought forth the universe and Magearth from his stomach. How from each of Its seven fingers it brought forth a race of magic creatures. How the last group to be created were the humans not from the fingers but from the palm of the Creator’s hand. For humans were to have power like unto the Creator Itself. So he created Mada and Vee. But before giving them the power the Creator tested them to see if they were ready. It gave them the box, The One Box above all boxes. It instructed them not to open the box until it told them they were ready less they be wiped from the face of Creation.
But a flying pig told the man that The One Box contained the magic power of the Creator. If he opened it he would be able to create worlds. So the man said to the woman. The One Box is a box of power and we will have it all. So the woman, who then even as now was silly enough to listen to the man , opened the box. But there was nothing in it. No power, no magic, nothing.
Then the Creator came and said “ You are not ready to hold the power so you will be the least among the magic creatures. But the day will come when Magearth will need the power and in that day I will reconstruct you. You will become what I intended you to be. And because pigs caused this problem thery will will not fly any longer.".
And so the true believers have waited. They have protected the Book of Beginnings and Endings . Every week they have read from it. They heard how the elves came forth from the thumb of the Creator. They heard how Ogres came from a wart on the little finger. They waited for Reconstruction.
Now it seemed like Reconstruction had to be near. Spontaneous magic was happening, illness existed that the healers could not cure, and people and all magic creatures were dieing. It was time for Reconstruction.
It was at this point that the elf All Gorey sent out his famous brainblog. In it he claimed that it was obvious that all the problems of Mageart were being caused by the Ring of Waste. It had become so thick that it was reflecting back the magic that escapes from each magic act. This magic used to go out into space and cause no problems but now it is destroying us. He called this theory the “ Outhouse effect”. He also claimed to have invented brainblogs which, of course, isn’t true.
All magic creatures would have to learn to do with less magic until a long term solution could be found. But such a life change was not wanted and so , in the beginning, All Gorey’s theory was rejected.
To be continued.

News from Pigeon Falls
-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal. It is the first week of Pigeon Days.
Mrs. Trumble and Tommy gathered people at the gazebo this morning. In front of the gazebo was an object under a blanket.
Mrs. Trumble began” Two years ago Tommy UK and I felt that life in Pigeon Falls was just too boring. So we searched through the old papers and came across the stories of the big White Rabbit. So we decided it was time for the White Rabbit to return. I contacted some friends in Holywood and they had constructed for me a marvelous machine that could hop, wave, and wink.”
At this point Tommy Uk pulled the blanket off of the three foot White Rabbit. Using his remote control he made it hop, wave and blink.
Mrs. Trumble went on “ Then we decided I would hunt it and hate it. That ment that when Tommy UK was in school I could run the rabbit. Hide it and show up with my shotgun. Nobody would suspect me of running it. And it worked very well. I think even Eino was beginning to believe. But the machine is wearing out and we have live dragons and a whale to contend with so we don’t need it anymore. So Tommy UK and I have decided to retire it.”
Tommy Uk then spoke “ There is one slight problem. There have been some sightings of the white Rabbit while ours was safely stored in Mrs. Trumble’s garage. So I wouldn’t count it out yet.”
Buddy East shouted out “ Tommy UK you should enter the Liar’s club contest”

ROFL! Sesom at Ianis? Mada & Vee? LOL! A 3 parter!!! We must have to wait while All Gorey makes the movie!

Ohhhhhhhhhhh goodness! The PLOT thickens with the white rabbit! Well... the REAL white rabbit is still waiting for an apology! The fake one can go in the museum!

I think they need to sell the White Rabbit to Wink's. They need someone to stand on the corner and wave in costume to bring i customres. Think of all the t-shirts they would sell.

Hmmmm. Mrs. Trumble has friends in Hollywood? I would have thought that Tommy's eccentric uncle played a part in its construction.

Jam and ham? I was thinking "Ewwww!" Then I thought it really isn't different from having toast and jelly with bacon at breakfast. Well, not much different.

Beautiful rose.

Noooooooooo... Luz will NOT get more of the CD player! I actually have SEVEN favorite Praise CD's - and my OLD player only held 5 (in the truck) so I kept 4 in there all the time, and gave Luz one spot for HER kid tunes. Now I will have FIVE of mine and she will still have ONE for her kid tunes!

However... the cd changer in the HOUSE has 2 kid tunes, 2 old war tunes (for mom) and 1 country CD. Then the radio is set to the Christian radio station! (until Krysti comes along and changes it to her country station....) LOL!

I meant to tell you... I LOVE that orange rose!

Your rose is stunning.

I don't eat much jelly - maybe ham and honey would be a better combo for me.

I agree. Janvangoh cups are the best for coffee! I'm so addicted to mine. Nobody in the house better not use it. It's the puuuurrrfect size.
