News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal
Suddenly Mark felt the presence closing around him and trying to move him toward the door. He unleashed a blow of power to break the hold but the power passed through the presence and broke chairs and various dishes. Nancy ducked behind the counter. Again the presence tried to move Mark with no success and then Mark saw the big coffee pot floating toward him filled with hot coffee. He used his power to hold it in midair. Again he and the poltergeist were at a stalemate. Neither had the power or understood the other well enough to win this battle. Finally Mark began to move toward the door and the presence seemed to disappear as the coffee pot returned to its proper place.
As soon as he left Nancy called Herman who had just returned from his retreat. She told him there was a stranger with some kind of weird power that had just left the coffee shop, She described the damage which consisted of three chairs broken, several dishes and some cups smashed.
Herman hastened from the Church where he had been working to the Coffee Shop only to meet Mark along the way. The two men faced each other each sensing the others power. This is not the way Mark wanted to meet Herman, not at all. It was like a shoot out on the streets of Pigeon Falls and it wasn’t even high noon.

Wrap UP
One of those rough days. My breathing was rough. My arthritis really hurt, and I was in charge of my grandsons by myself. Betty's hip hurt worse today so she spent most of the day laying down. My grandson Alex made the breakfast and helped her with the lunch. She laid down in the afternoon while we cleaned the garage. We are now half done. It looks like a different garage. Pennie will do the evening meal when she gets home from work. The boys didn't even complain that we had to cancel the trip we planned after the garage cleaning because Betty's hip hurt too much to drive. She is hoping this will just pass. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Well, even if YOU wait for your 2000 post to celebrate, I send you my best wishes and congratulations for your 1'500th post.

I remember, when you celebrated your 800th post, I was at my 100th. And now I am something like at 370.

Still a very, very long way to go to catch up with you. It does not look like I will ever be even with you.

Again, congratulations and warmest thanks for giving us the joy to read you daily.

Take care

Congratulations on your 1500 post, I haven't even hit 900 yet. I liked your answers, but will refrain from doing the quiz myself.

Stop by the blog, I made another trip down memory lane and I think you will like what you see.

Blessings to you and Betty.

Crikey 1500 posts - that's some going!

Loved your answers and the fact that you put the previous answers on there too - great idea.

Just one thing Dr. John, my blog is called Everything and Nothing not Are We There Yet?

Congratulations on your 1500th post!! But why wait to celebrate?
I love today's saying, it's something I'll keep in mind when I crave something sweet again!

How do you know how many posts you have? Do you add them up or is there a total somewhere on Blogger I haven't found? Not that I am anywhere near your milestone. Congratulations.

You are feisty this morning. I like the look on the faces of the pedestrians on my windshield.

1500! WOW! That's a lot of words and wisdom you've shared!

I will, of course, snatch this meme - but I'm not sure when I'll post it!

I really think Mark and Herman should just shake hands and talk this out... What IS the chip Mark has on his shoulder ANYWAY? The dragons haven't even come after him or anything! And Herman is a reasonable man...

Dr. John, Thank you so much for stopping by. Yes, regarding taxes, I know I'm just part of a large club that feels the way I do. Have so enjoy perusing your place.. and love your answer to #16 on the bird you wouldn't want to eat- very true! Oh and your trains(!)... we are train lovers. Small and large...and all in between. Have ridden several (different sizes & locations; Durango, CO to Rusk, TX) and have more on 'our list' that we would like to ride someday. Got one for our toddler last Christmas. In fact, (long story), but erroneously got two...if you anyone that wants a Bachmann HO Scale Electric train Set that's still in the box form ?? '83 or ??- can't remember. Probably need to list it on eBay.
Sure have enjoyed looking around. Congrats on your 1500(!) blog post. Oh, don't wait to celebrate, life's short.
My best to you and your wife's health.

Congratulations on reaching (and now surprassing) your 1500th post! Wow!

Today's Saying is so true, and yet it is often what we refuse to admit to ourselves. Seeing it in print is a wake-up call to make better decisions (or at least be happy with the decisions that I make).

Hoping that you & Betty both feel better soon!
