News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal
Social Services called this morning and asked to meet with Pastor Joan this afternoon. Pastor Joan agreed to meet the lady at the Church office. Then she sat down and went over her story again and again. This was scarier than meeting with her Bishop to discuss her first call. That had involved only her but this involves Oops as well.
Yesterday Tommy UK was out at the totally frozen over Lake of the Loons . He was trying to figure out some way to open up a space for the whale. Suddenly the ice began to crack and then flew in every direction and there in the center of the lake in a new opening was the whale. It had broken through the ice. Tommy almost danced he was so happy. But as it gets colder and the ice gets thicker can this continue?, he wondered.
Since Christmas Pigeon Falls has had a mini-epidemic. The clinic has been filled every day with people that had flue like symptoms. This is a small waiting room and those that had probably gave it to those who didn't. This soon became obvious to the staff and they decided that the secretary was to get the symptoms of those looking for an appointment and tell them to stay at home . They would send somebody out to visit them there.

Wrap UP
Had a good day today. My oxygen was up which is always good. I blogged. I did a little reading. In the afternoon we finally decided to tackle the living room which was in the same condiition it was in after the Christmas/ New Year's party. You couldn't move in it. We put gifts away. Took the decorations off of the fireplace mantle. Took down the card table. Did some flat lining ( moving junk from one flat surface where it doesn't belong to another flat surface where it doesn't belong but in a different part of the room. We did manage to clean about two thirds of the room.
My layout in the basement waits for us so patiently. Then I visited some links. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Tommy needs to get the Pigeon Falls Snowmobile club to go out to the lake and run their machines round and round until they create enough "green house gas" to cause Lake of the Loons own mini global warming event.

I won! I won! Whoooo hoooo! A FABULOUS prize will be MINE by August! YAY! You know... the REAL prize is that I've gotten to know you and Betty! And that's not just a prize - it's a TREASURE!

House calls? ONLY in Pigeon Falls! WOW! I'm surprised that Social Services woman agreed to meet Pastor Joan at the office... I figured she'd want to come to her home. I keep telling myself God is in control here... but I can't help worrying JUST A LITTLE. I'm having "sympathy worry" with Pastor Joan. But I'm sO happy for the WHALE!!! Goooo WHALE!!! GO!

Hi, Dr. John!

I wish I could send the Lionel Chesapeake & Ohio Empire Builder Train Set to you. If I win this week's lottery you are SO getting that!

Perfect post for my little announcement, Dr. John -- YOU are the winner of my Punny Monday contest! Whooo hooo! Come by and see your name up in lights (so to speak) and your blog button in my Sidebar!



I hope Pastor Joan took my advice to heart and contacted my friend, Ann, for a lesson in evasive communication.

Yes, that is THE top of the line Lionel train! Wow! (Gee, for that price, well, let's get two! Heh!!) I don't even think I can afford to LOOK at that set!

I laughed at the fact you did not support Obama or McCain! I ALMOST voted for the Green Party candidate this year ... then started thinking about the Libertarian and finally started wishing they had the No Nothing Party again!

Well, take care and thanks for stopping by my blog. I always appreciate it.

Hey, I tagged you in a Mime Meme. I used the first sentence from your Jan 11th post. I hope you will come by.

I am so glad that the ice has broken, though we don't know how long it will last?

I never heard of that expression sliding, that was funny.

So hope that you get better with your breathing treatment.

Dr. John,
It was cool to see that picture of your church and imagine all the special moments you oversaw in that setting. Sorry I missed out on the contest, but it looks like you had a great response.

You and Betty sound like me - I move things from one place to another but not completely put away. :)
