News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal
It is Monday and there is a real feeling in the air that something is going to happen today. Nobody knows what but something is going to happen.
Tommy UK is skipping school and has been practicing using his ring. Herman has spent a lot of time praying. They are as ready as can be.
Homeland security has sent a tank and eleven soldiers to back up the two men in black. They are all ready.
And so they wait for whatever it is to begin.
Then suddenly in the middle of the street the demon returns. He was here once before and he was defeated. But somehow this time he is bigger, stronger, and , if possible, more frightening.
He announces with a voice that can be heard in the next county. “ I will meet your heroes in the middle of the street at noon. If they don’t show I will burn the town to the ground.”
With that he flames out and disappears.
The town awaits noon.

Wrap UP
A nice day today. I visited all my friend's blogs. It took a long time. We had a new lawn person who cut the grass today. Now I need a breathing treatment.

I CAN remember the first film I saw - because it was a very very VERY big deal! I was going out on a DATE with my sister and her boyfriend! I had to dress up in my blue velvet dress and white tights and black patent leather shoes! And they took me to the Avalon! It was probably the most exciting thing a 3.5 year old has ever done! Other than going to the circus!

Funny answers to the ABCs. Particularly liked the answers to the letter P (I love the Q quote~ is a good one for those that want to justify certain behavior under the light of being 'moral'.
Will have to remember it.

Up at 5am? No wonder you do everything that you do and still blog up a storm.
Retirement for me meant I could happily become the night owl that my body has always demanded and I have no idea what 5 am looks like.
