News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal.
Life may be back to normal but Tommy UK and Tammy aren’t. They may never be the same again. Yesterday they had to acolyte. That means they had to sit on a special little pew just behind the altar rail in full view of the congregation. Tommy UK sat as far away from Tammy as he could on such a small pew. Tammy didn’t know what to do. She thought he might be angry with her. That is definitely not what she wanted. She tried to smile but it was a masquerade of her true feelings. Then in the middle of Pastor Joan’s very evangelical sermon she asked him if he was going to the tractor pull on Friday evening. He put his finger to his lips to indicate she should shut up and pointed at Pastor Joan. If, at that point, you had a thermometer to measure the air between them it would have been as near freezing as you can get.
At the coffee after the service she asked him to tell her how he really felt but instead he went and got a sugar-coated doughnut and sat at the table with the men.
“How I can I tell her about feelings I don’t understand “ he thought. “ Girls are so unfair .” At the men’s table he just listened. They were talking about how Touno Koski got blown up in the mine and survived.” I will survive this” he thought “ I will”.

Wrap Up
Woke up to snow this morning will post a picture tomorrow. In the morning I did some catching up on the computer. In the afternoon we worked on the layout. The lake is not coming as fast as we thought but it is progressing. Coming up I visited sixty blogs , my entire link list. Now I need a breathing treatment.

#14 - WRONG!

Pooooor Tommy. Poooooor Tammy. I hope Pastor Joan notices what's going on and speaks to them! If not Pastor Joan, maybe the mayor will notice... SOMEBODY needs to help those poor kids!

INVITATION

Invited hereby to my site
please be. You see I poems write
and knight like fight and youth alight.
This poem says it. Godly, right?

I want more readers. I want you
to come as if out from the blue
and tell me what I write is true
and make my motivation new.

Why you? This is not spam, God’s dear.
I stand by what I do. I care.
Your senseless love to me I fear.
I mean it. I am good. Take care.

Melli is right, your #14 is wrong!

Poor Tammy. If she really loves Tommy she'd better get used to it. Most men (and boys) are clueless about how to talk to females -- especially about emotional stuff.

Your car is in Montana, which makes no sense...or your car is a Montana...that probably makes more sense.

You did well on the meme, though I can't agree you're not smart!

Poor Tommy UK and Tammy! It's hard to believe you'll survive when first love can be so painful.

Loved your 'one word meme' so much that I'm confiscating it! Thank you, kindly, oh smart one!

My goodness, anyone who can do all this work on the computer needs to take number 14 back...change it to "what I'm not" Proud...
