Picture of the Day
From the Archives

It is Monday and time to open my head to all you amateur psychologists.
In the hope that you might come to know and love the real me.
( This assumes that somewhere under all the false me’s there still is a real me to see)

Let’s start with my blogging and a meme I found on the web.
1. When did I start blogging?
I started on Sunday May 08, 2005
2. How often do you blog? How many times per week, per day?
I blog every day if possible, seven days a week but only once per day.
3. How many blogs do you have?
Just one
4. How many blogs do you visit daily? What type of blogs do you tend to visit? Do you always leave comments?
At least seventeen but sometimes sixty four. I visit all kinds of blogs with preference given to people who leave comments on my blog. Yes , I always leave comments unless I have already left a comment on that entry.
5. What is it about blogging that you enjoy the most?
The various kinds of people , their pictures and their ideas.
6. What is it that you don't like about blogging?
People who use their blog to demean or attack others.
7. What do you usually blog about?
With the exception of Pigeon Falls there is no usually.

But enough about blogging.
Now for some really deep stuff.

This word — makes me think of
1. Pink — wink, rink, clink, stink for some reason I want to rhyme with pink.
2. Shoe — horn
3. Zebra —– jail
4. School —– days
5. Button —– up
6. Kiss —— and tell
7. Over —– under
8. Pool —– cue
9. Run —– jump
10. Seven —– eleven

Now dig in and analyze.

News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal
Tammy and Tommy UK spent the afternoon together at Mrs. Trumble’s going over the driblet line by line. They discovered what might be a message inside the message if you take every fifth line. Mrs. Trumble agreed that it could be but you could get the same idea from the entire driblet so it doesn’t help much. But Tommy UK thinks it does. It centers the attempt to prevent the shadow in Herman. That’s where they need to concentrate their attention. Here is the message as they see it:
A Seer sees
One Last Vision
trust the vision
not the seer
He knows but he doesn’t know
Put the pieces
From the past
where they belong
Tonight they will meet at Tammy’s house and review Herman’s last vision. They will return to the old car where they do their best thinking. In fact it is all Tommy UK can think about today. Perhaps, tonight, a mystery will be solved. The question is which mystery.
Will this message in a message save the day? Is Herman’s vision really the answer? What pieces ? What will happen in the old car? And of course is Tommy UK really the undertaker’s kid? Some of the questions might be answered in tomorrow’s visit to Pigeon Falls.

Wrap Up
It was a rough day. My oxygen is still four points lower than last week and I used two little bottles of oxygen during the day. Pennie is home sick from work. In the morning I started visiting links. Right after lunch the UPS man brought four packages. Most of what we need for the lake module is now here.Betty's Bible study book came. In the afternoon we worked on the layout. We put fish in the lake then we laid track and tested it. It worked well. Coming back up I finished the last of my links. I also started scanning a new set of slides. Now I need a breathing treatment.

I enjoyed the memes...esp the one about blogging.....I kinda feel the same way as you do about it. I try to keep my sidebar kind of small so I can visit everyone I enjoy. When I wasnt blogging last winter I missed it very much...Im glad I am back to it

I remember going to a Jellystone National Park as a kid. I'll have to dig up some old photos to prove it.

I ALREADY LOVE YOU!!! But I do like getting to know you even better! And I think you were peeking in on my Thanksgiving... I think your thought for the day is directly aimed at me! (could just be a guilty conscience - except that I don't feel guilty...)

Oh my! Tommy & Tammy have been busy busy busy! I expected a little "less" business to occur... and a little more... well... anyway! This is interesting! I wonder what will happen with it!

Praying your oxygen will be UP tomorrow!
