Opening my Head

Saying for the Day:
Let us be grateful to the mirror for revealing to us our appearance only. ~Samuel Butler, Erewhon
Picture of the Day:
The Days Wrap UP :
This dragon is Wormhole, smartest of my dragons. He likes to sit in the sun by the flower garden and catch bugs. He also drives away rabbits.This morning I put the VBS pictures on the St. Mark's website and added Sunday's sermon.I added the Bible study based on next Sunday's text. Then I made copies for Betty to take with her to the study tomorrow. In the afternoon we worked in the basement on the layout. now Betty and Pennie are gone to VBS. I need a breathing treatment.

Opening my Head
.It is Monday. Time to open up my head and pour the contents on the table so you can count and see if I have all my marbles. Please note I started life with a few marbles missing.

News from Pigeon Falls
-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal. Art on the Yellow Brick Road is up and running. A couple of artists have already sold out and are packing up to go home. But new artists are coming in. The man with the weird iron pieces has sold all of his stuff. Again, things that looked like accidents sold for unbelievable amounts of money.
The hit of the show so far has been the button lady. She paints art work on coat buttons. She has this great big magnifying glass and these teeny tiny brushes. She has this vice like thing the button is locked into and she paints up a storm. She paints copies of masterpieces. She has the Mona Lisa, Whistler’s Mother, the Last Super, and art like that. All of it is reduced to a button. You need a magnifying glass to see the detail. She doesn’t charge a lot either. For $30 she will paint a picture that you request. She has been doing a lot of White Rabbit Waving buttons and a few Dragon buttons.
Janvangogh is here with a whole table of cups, all kinds of cups. Cups that make fun of Spam, cups that have pictures inside of pictures, and her famous “Woof Da” cup. She even has a contest going where people can sign up two win two cups. Some lucky person is going to be really happy.
All over Pigeon Falls people are getting their acts ready for the big talent show. The Church Choir from Last Lutheran is coming out of its summer hibernation and will sing two numbers so they have been practicing. Tommy UK and Tammy are practicing some kind of put skit about dragons. Buddy East and his wife will do an old Abbott and Costello routine. All kinds of other acts are being finished up to be ready buy Wednesday night.

I would think Tommy UK and Tammy would do a skit about whales.

Thanks for the mention on the mugs. My giveaway has ended this morning.

EITHER I have lost half of my marbles too... OR... you still have all of yours! (i suspect the former though)

Wormhole is absolutely gorgeous basking there in the sun! Does he actually EAT the bugs he catches? Or does he just "Bug" for sport? Perhaps he has a lot of little stuffed bug heads mounted on the walls of his cave.... just curious. I never heard that dragons ate bugs...

I can't believe that man's JUNK all sold again! Although that ONE piece that looked like a crane standing on one foot with it's wings spread wide -- THAT one I think I would have paid for too! But some of them... I could have thrown that slop together! Amazing! I was impressed with the button lady too ... I think I might have her paint me the 3 dragons flying over at dusk!

I'm impressed with your rabbit repelling Dragon. You wouldn't happen to know if there may be a Deer Repelling Dragon would you. Those critters are eating my front yard!
