Joyful Reflections

Saying for the Day
Writing became such a process of discovery that I couldn't wait to get to work in the morning: I wanted to know what I was going to say. ~Sharon O'Brien

Picture of the Day
(My Cornish Great Aunt. She hated the electric stove
because unlike the wood stove it burned stuff)

This is your weekly report on the activity of the S.O.S ( Save Oz Society)

We have held two meetings since the last report.
Nine people have pledged never to buy any books by the “Wicked” writer.
A membership card has been designed and is being printed.
We are still working on bumper stickers.

Further it was decided, in the light of Quilly’s remarks that the million person march on Washington might be counter productive and cause people to purchase “ Wicked” , that we would put the march on hold until a further time and after further study. ( Besides we were short a few on the million people goal-999,991 to be exact.)

For the same reason we are putting the book burning on hold as emotionally satisfying as burning “Wicked” books would be. ( Besides those blamed books are expensive and there ain’t much in our treasury)

We are continuing to gather signatures on a petition to Congress to make all the Frank Baum Oz Books a national treasure. Thus getting more people to be aware of them. Congress should listen because it costs them nothing.( Though the Society could use a grant)

We are also continuing in our effort to get “ Somewhere over the Rainbow” declared a National Song. We are suggesting schools that do not have songs from the Wizard of Oz movie in their music curriculum be denied any federal aid.

We are almost ready to begin our one tell one E-mail campaign . Will give you further information next week.

Other projects are also being studied.

We continue to solicit your support.

Remember if the good do nothing “Wicked” writers triumph.

News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal
People having coffee at Nancy’s that have read Petrovich’s most recent translation of a driblet are scared. They have absolutely no desire to confront a demon from Hades. This time , unlike the others there seems to be no way out. The demon is coming and it can’t be stopped. It will burn the town down.
Nancy reminds them that they have been through much and it always turns out well. The came through the attack of the Killer trees and the great Shadow. Those were scary but the town survived.
But people are sure that a real demon is far worse than anything they have faced. If the driblet is to be believed then there is nothing that can stand against it. This is it. The end. All she wrote. No hope time.
People are trying to get Petrovich to tell them when the demon will come. The best Petrovich can do is point out there will still be snow on the ground when it comes. Of course given this winter in Pigeon Falls that could be July. But he feels it will be soon because the dragons are agitated.
Eino is telling everybody who will listen that there are no demons so they don’t have to worry. Demons are not rational. Sane people don’t believe in them. Poor Eino almost nobody listens to him anymore.
Tommy UK is too busy worrying about the whale to worry about demons. Unless he could get the demon to thaw the lake.
So people who can afford it are making an early trip to Disney World. They hope that in the three weeks that they are gone the demon will come if its coming at all. Others are going to visit relatives in Wisconsin for a week or two.

Wrap UP
My oxygen was down again today. In the morning I put the coming Sunday's bulletin on the website. That took a bit of time. In the afternoon we finally got back to the basement and we did some wiring. Next week we plaster. Peter called and told me about the Linbaugh episode at the Green Bay Middle school. I visited some links. Now I really need a breathing treatment,

I would think the Pigeon Falls Street Department would be happy to have the demon come and keep the streets clear of snow -- as the snow melts when it is around. Save them a little money on salt and snowplows.

Oh cool! I think you live and breathe that quote Dr. J! That truly IS a GREAT quote!

OKAY! OKAY! OKAY! I hereby PROMISE and give solemn oath that I will NOT buy any books titled WICKED or even any written by the dastardly author! BUT... I draw the line here... IF (and I hope) IF I ever get the chance to see the play WICKED - especially on Broadway - I am snatchin' that chance up and runnin' with it!!! (that's as close to membership in your club as I can get... I never did like the Wizard of Oz... He's a phoney ya know...)

Oops will burp. Or if she catches a cold, she might even SNEEZE!

this picture reminds me so much of my ex husbands grandmother. they lived to be in their 90's and they had a wee little house with a coal stove in it and an outhouse, they could afford to remodel but they never wanted to, they were very religious people and very content with what they had. It was always very homey to go and visit them....till you had to go to the bathroom! lol
