News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal.
On the second day of the New Year Pigeon Ekola called his cousin Nancy and asked her to come over right away. He said it was an emergency of sorts. So Nancy got somebody to watch the shop and rushed over to Pigeon’s. She found him in the living room with what looked like a child in a Green Bay Packer nightshirt.
“ I need help “ he said “ with Oops”.
“Oops? What is that ?” she responded.
He pointed at the child . “Oops is the one that came out of the potato on New Years Day. I called her Opps because when you ask her name all she says is Oops. Actually no matter what you ask her all she says is Oops.”
“Why don’t you call Social Services? It’s their job to take care of abandoned children.
“ I did. The lady asked how the child came to be at my place and I told her it came out of the potato. That’s when she hung up on me” . Pigeon said sadly.
I was going to call her back when Oops did that “
Tommy UK is determined this year to save the whale. Wonderful people have given him a lot of ideas but none of them seem workable. Somebody suggested he pour alcohol into the lake to act as anti-freeze but the DNR said it would never allow that. Besides then he might then have a drunken whale on his hands.
Somebody suggested putting a big black blanket on top the ice and it would melt. But for that to work they needed sun and no wind.
Somebody suggested that he paint the ice black but the DNR nixed that as well.
So he is still trying to come up with a workable idea.
Can Tommy UK save the whale? What did Oops do? Where did Oops come from. What is Oops? And of course is Tommy UK really the Undertaker’s Kid. The New Year could answer all those questions in New from Pigeon Falls.

Thanks for the 2008 recap, Dr. John. I didn't become a daily reader until about the time of the last driblet; I have a lot of archive reading to do.

Looks like the kiddos had a good New Year's Day. Hope it was the same for you.

Surely someone in Pigeon Falls is full of hot air. Petrovich needs to go over to the lake and recite his driblet over and over. That will keep the water from freezing.

Oh my gosh! Not EVEN a post today! Well... being that I know you've had family I will go on the assumption that you are just having TOOOOOO MUCH FUN!!! (and that you are NOT in desperate need of my prayer that I'm going to say ANYway just to be on the safe side!) Carry ON with that fun - and we'll see you when you get bored again! :)
