Last Year Pictures

Today's Saying

May all your troubles last as long as your New Year's resolutions. ~Joey Adams


The last of our year end pictures.
Pennie chaperoned the youth to the ELCa gathering in New Orleans and there she fell in a hole and sprained her leg.
Betty and I really enjoyed our visit to the local county fair.
We had Sand Cranes in our back yar, well almost.
Betty made the dog costume for VBS and the slime they poured over the Pastor.

This year we all went to Peter's for Thanksgiving and everybody came here for CXhristmas.
I hope you enjoyed our year in pictures.



Somewhere in Pigeon Falls a mother plays a DVD of old cartoons that ran in the Movie theater.
Chief Ican is waiting for his sister to arrive on the noon train. He hasn’t seen her or her three children since he moved to Pigeon Falls and is looking forward to the visit. Of course, she will also bring Miss Apricot , the family cat , which has never liked the Chief, but for the sake of family you put up with the little things. His sister is a widow , lives in Flint Michigan, and runs a little dress shop there.
The Chief is planning on taking a few days off when she arrives and will turn the magic watching over to his deputy.
Mrs. Trumble and Robert have discussed things that can be done using Robert’s power if the magic becomes a real problem and not just a cute diversion. The problem is they are working with a child’s imagination and have no idea what will come next. Each event has to be reacted to on its own.
Nancy is wondering if her poltergeist will be of help if the magic turns ugly. It might constrain a mythical monster or two.
Most of Pigeon Falls, however, has paid very little attention to the magic. People are busy doing after Christmas things like returning gifts and visiting friends. Some have even taken down their Christmas tree, already.
Somewhere in Pigeon Falls a child says:
Сильні гризунів врятувала день.

I hope a real live Nell didn't just get tied to the train tracks by Snidley Whiplash. Without Dudley Doolittle, this could get messy.

Hmmm - this ones got me stumped for sure Dr. John. I'm hoping nothing happens to Miss Apricot. I do have a special place in my heart for animals.

Lovely pics. Thank you so much for sharing them with us(me).

I liked your last act on the picture show. Thank you for showing your home. It looks nice with all the lights (and snow??).

It seems that if New York City had this problem those very large rats could fix it. Never understand the power of strong rodents to save the day.
