Rhymes with Plague

Today's Saying
Sometimes it's important to work for that pot of gold. But other times it's essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow. ~Douglas Pagels

It is time to share with you another of my favorite blogs.
I thought my blog was weird . I thought I could play well with words. But rhymeswithplague does both weird and word play better than I ever could hope to.
But he does so many things I decided to give you two entry points to his blog.
Click HERE to see his word play.
Click HERE for his most recent blog.
I enjoy every visit and I visit often.

(Click on the Pigeon Falls Graphic for previous chapters.)
Chief Ican stopped by Mrs. Trumble's office to ask about the driblet. He thought the entire thing was crazy and couldn't understand how the entire town seemed scared by it.
Mrs. Trumble explained how previous driblets had proved to be sort of true or at least true enough to convince people not to disregard them.
Chief Ican said that it was like trying to solve a crime that hadn't been committed yet. Where do you start.
Mrs. Trumble suggested he go down to Nancy's and just listen to the rumors.
So all morning Chief Ican has been having coffee with Nancy and has discovered he has lots to pick from.
From the moment Pastor Joan read the driblet the word Oops kept popping into her mind but she had no idea as to why. " What in this world or out of this world is an Oops?" she thought. She was sure it was not a biblical reference. But it had to have some kind of meaning.
Poor Tommy UK was now wondering if his birth father was still alive. He was sure Mrs. Trumble hadn't lied but the man in black might have lied to her. But why would he do that? Why did he want her to think Tommy's father was dead? Tommy was basing his hope on the feeling that the man that got them out of the other dimension was his father. Being with him had felt different than when he worked with the man in black the other times.
Tammy told him it was his imagination. Things were different because they didn't think they would ever get back and were under a lot of stress.

I think Tommy's father is alive, too.

And I hope Ican can crack the driblet before it cracks him!

I've been thinkin' all along that Tommy's father was still alive... just a HUNCH! But I guess Tommy's going to have to do some more investigating...

Poooor Chief Ican! He has SO much to learn about Pigeon Falls! I would imagine it really might be a police chief's nightmare... but I knOW he IS the right man for the job!!!

I am hoping that Tommy's father is alive. The Men In Black can't be trusted so he needs to search some more :)

But isn't being under stress and in a weird place/situation normal for Tommy UK?

Miss you! Sorry I haven't been blogging as much lately. I'm guilty of dwindling to "micro-blogging" on Twitter and Facebook due to not having enough time in a day - or lack of brain cells.

Could both be a factor to be honest.

How are you? Betty? The kids and grands?

Again - miss you but think of you very often. -M
