News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal
Herman Hatlverson decided on Saturday that becoming the seer of Pigeon Falls was more important than keeping his wife happy. So he closed up the bar at the Happy Pigeon drinking six Haltvers (driblets) in the last hour. He staggered out but the Happy Pigeon is handicapped accessible so there were no steps to fall down like at the Fly Inn. He did trip over the edge of the sidewalk when he got to town and had trouble getting up. But eventually he made it home only to find the front door locked . So he feel asleep on the front porch. During the night he swears he saw a bright light and a voice said “ Cow on the Masonic Building Roof”. He says this is the third of his Haltvers ( visions). His wife told him he was crazy and if he did it again she was filing for a divorce. But he keeps telling her he had a vision. She says a cow is more likely to jump over the moon than to end up on the Masonic roof. But even if one did of what earthly use is such a vision. But Herman thinks it proves he’s a seer and that this is his destiny.
Melli who is visiting Pigeon Falls this week caused quite a stir at Nancy’s . It seemed she bought a cup of coffee and various saffron buns every fifteen minutes and watched the poltergeist juggle pumpkins. The ghost groupie who paid $ 30 for that privilege was very upset.. Poor Nancy doesn’t know what to do.

Wrap Up
A good breathing day today. I got the Church Bible Study up and posted. In the morning I visited some blogs. In the afternoon we finished the wiring for the train and the new control table is in place. Not only that but everything worked. Tomorrow we build two tunnel entrances and a mountain. Coming up I printed out two pages of pictures from the Craft Sale for the bulletin board. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Didnt the knights in Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail throw cows over the castle wall in a fight? Seems to me getting a cow on the top of the Masonic Building shouldnt be too awful hard.

I DO see how much I know! You were in a COMA - for 2 MONTHS??? That's serious business ... I'm so glad you came out - and you're okay!

Rumors! All RUMORS! My how those tongues wag! I only had ONE saffron bun... but I had breakfast AND lunch! WHO could eat a saffron bun every 15 minutes??? Those are the biggest buns I've ever seen -- well except my backside in a mirror! Sheeeeeesh! How big of a tip did the ghost groupie leave, huh???

Now I know Herman is NO seer! And it wasn't the Masonic Hall he saw! The cow was on the ROOF at Bowen's market -- and I have a picture to PROVE it! (and I'm certainly no SEER -- but I did SEE it!) LOL!

Add me to the list. Tell us about the 2 month coma. That must be a worthwhile story. Love the saying for the day. I'm still laughing! I think I may borrow the memes from you sometime soon.

Those are pretty strange questions. I thought your favourite food was ice cream.

I once tampered with my beagle's food; I put a hot pepper inside her meat. Granted, I was a kid, but dang that is no excuse. She didn't even notice as she wolfed it down unchewed.
