News from Pigeon FallsThe little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal.
The :Lake of the Loons is almost frozen over except for a large space in the center. Today the whale surfaced through that space. Tommy UK is really getting worried but he has no idea how to keep the lake from freezing and he can’t get anybody to help him. At this point he is so upset that he’s not speaking to Tammy or the other members of the Tommy Club.
Herman has gotten a job at the hardware store. It doesn’t pay much but he’s working. His wife can’t believe that either. This new Herman is just full of surprises.
Our ghost piano has switched from the Nutcracker to variations on "Auld Lang Sye" and of course the shoes dance on.
The dragons flew down main street this morning fighting a brisk headwind. This winter has to be hard on them.
Petrovich, wife, and children are still in Green Bay.
Nancy and Tommy TW will be returning tomorrow from Marquette Mountain. The skiing has been superb.
While Tommy UK has been caught up with the whale Tammy has been trying to find out as much as she can about the man in black. She found a number of people that saw him but she can’t find out where he stayed. But since he was in town three days he had to stay somewhere.
I did some reading, watched a bit of the "Burn Notice" marathon, and Betty cleaned. I visited seventeen of my links. Now I need a breathing treatment.*****************************************************************
