News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal
On Saturday morning when he had planned on going to his Uncle’s in Iron Mountain Tommy UK put his newest idea into motion. He grabbed his rock with one hand and put his other hand on the rash then he willed himself to where the one was who gave him the rash. Then he found himself in a different clearing looking down at the little leprechaun and his pot of gold. He almost felt sorry for the little guy as he looked so terrified. Then Tommy spoke.” I want three things from you or I send your coins to the bottom of the ocean. First lift the curse you put on me. Second you need to promise that you will never curse anybody in Pigeon Falls again. And finally I want you to bless Pigeon Falls so that for one week only good things can happen there.
The leprechaun looked very sad and said” I will do the first two but the third is very very difficult”.
Tommy responded “ It’s all three or the pot goes to the bottom of the ocean and I might send you with it.”
Reluctantly the little man promised all three things. Then Tommy reminded him that if he failed Tommy had the power to find him wherever he hid.
Having finished his task Tommy grasped his rock with one hand and a half a saffron role in the other and willed himself back to the front of Nancy’s Coffee Shop. Going inside he told Nancy he thought it was going to be a very good week in Pigeon Falls.

Wrap UP
Tomorrow worlds largest group of Quivel including Very Quivel Haiku. It was a hard breathing day. I think because of the water in the air. The snow is back. I am depressed. Today Betty and I started the process of photographing , weighing, and packing the engines I'm going to sell on e-Bay. There are more to do tomorrow . I also visited every blog that left a comment in the last four days not counting today. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Why is it everytime I read this, regardless of where it is posted, no one ever picks the correct berry? hmmmmmmmmmm Three Cheers for Tommy UK. I always say if there's a will there's a way.

So thoughts that occurred ... I love the "dead cow in all its many forms" line. It's a LOL if I ever saw one ... I must say that raspberries are my favorite too. They have to be the perfect fruit. All you have to do is rinse them, and they're perfect alone or in combination ... And "Who knows what evil lives in the hearts of men?" The Shadow knows. lol (I realize that there are several possible correct answers, but my dad used to say that with some frequency.) It was so great to learn more of you. :)

Even with a stolen meme you gave good answers. There are other berries than strawberries?

Loved your answers today (dead cow and raspberries -- sounds delish) and Yay, another MEME to steal for my blog! When I get back, that is. I have eyestrain and am supposed to turn off my PC for a few days.

Drat! How's a woman supposed to get any work done?

~ psst ~ The shadow knows . . .

P.S. Also enjoyed hearing you refer to the lovely Betty as "my love". You should give online 'how to be a real man' classes!

My hippie mate is always calling meat dead something or other :)
I liked today's episode in Pigeon Falls. And, that saffron roll sure sounds good.

Thanks for the encouraging words on my blog.

sorry to see that you had a bad breathing day. Maybe it is the same reason that I get an achy knees day.

I love your take on this meme! I am sorry I wasn't here earlier, but we bought me a new computer that isn't internet ready! Now we need to get a wifi receiver for the dang thing. Otherwise, I have to put it up in the livingroom beside the TV and OC would just as soon watch his sports shows without me between him and the TV. Go figure.
