Secret Award

Packer's Number One Draft Choice

Government secrecy is a wonderful thing. It protects us from information reaching the wrong people.
I have decided to give a top secret award to the government that has done the best job of keeping things secret:Here is the award.



Of course you can't see it because it is top secret and you don't have clearance.

After careful investigation I felt sure that our government came in in first place because of this:
When the Trident Submarine missile warheads were developed over twenty five years ago the government rightly felt a need to keep the process secret. But now the missiles are getting old and the warheads need to be rejuvenated. The only problem is that nobody knows how to make a key component of the weapons. Because of the intense secrecy no written records were kept and everyone who worked on the project is gone.
Now that’s secrecy.

But before I could present the award in a top secret ceremony I discovered this:
The German Interior Ministry reported to its parliament that it had lost 332 top secret files. The problem is that the files were so secret that nobody seems to know what was in them or even what they were about.
Now that is real secrecy.
I don’t think you can beat that.

I am now in top secret negotiations with the German Government to give the award.
Time and place not to be announced.

News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal
It was almost noon and our heroic crew was ready. They would fight to the bitter end if necessary to destroy the demon. Then the town clock struck twelve . Now it would begin. But no demon showed up. They waited until one o’clock before they decided it wasn’t coming. Why they had expected the demon to play fair they didn’t know. Now it knew what they had against it. Now it could make preparations. They had played right into its hands. Now it could come after them one by one.
The group of leaders got back together at Nancy’s to make plans . They decided the army would close off main street. They would camp out on the street and wait. It would not be able to come after them one by one if that was its intent.
Tommy UK felt that the demon was somewhere laughing at them. He could almost hear the laughter.” I think he enjoys our fear and our discomfort” he said. “He’s just playing with us like a cat with a mouse. If only we knew what rope to cut or what the animals had to do with all of this.”
Petrovich was busy going over and over the Coptic original of the driblet hoping to find something that would help them .He had spent a lot of time on the word that he had translated rope. He decided it could be a wire or a vine or a string or any long thin thing. He decided to share that information with Tommy UK.
Wrap UP
People who want to see pictures of my train lay out should go here.
It was a fairly good day. In the morning we went to the clinic because their vampire was short on blood so we each gave some to keep it happy. Then I was going to see the eye Doctor but she had the day off. We went from there to Wal-Mart where we bought some plants, some printer ink, and a little food. Coming home I made arrangements to go to Green Bay next week and have a lift installed for the electric motor scooter. I tried to call my sister Dawn but the " happily retired people" wern't home. I visited all the blogs that visited my blog and left a comment yesterday and the day before. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Waiting to hear who wins the award after the Negotiations.

Oh that's right, it is so secret that we will never know.

I'm sure, if your negotiations are really top secret, I'll read all about them in the headlines of The Globe the next time I'm at the grocery store.

Things are heating up in Pigeon Falls!

I had NO idea our government - or the German government either - could keep secrets so well! They DO deserve an award for that! I'm sO proud they have YOU to take care of that for them.

WHERE is the link to this latest driblet? "We, the People" need to be able to mull over this driblet! Personally, I think all that's needed is a saffron bun or two! I think the demon is HIGHLY allergic to saffron... if he eats a bun or two he might implode!

I had always thought that your "Pigeon Falls" the little town in your basement was an invention of your phantasy filled mind, until I saw the pictures on Melli's blog ! Wow !! that would have been something for my father I think he would have stayed in your basement until his death and ask my mother to bring him the food downstairs ! It is wonderful, really !

I love your award. Great idea. Here in Malaysia almost everything hides behind the Official Secrets Act.

Don't leave me! I was away!

With that out of the way - - -

Those secrets are truly amazing. I'd say who knew - but then no-one did.

And of course the demon didn't play fair. Or did he? Was he really there - but invisible?

Tune in tomorrow folks...same time - same station.

Isn't that the way of it, playing on our fears?

Perfect love drives out fear.
That might just be the key.

Unfortunately our current Government won't get that award...they seem intent on giving away any info they can with the help of the NY Times.

Loved the story, I'll be back.

Your secrets remind me of a time I was in Russia and we were told that the Secret Service was always amongst us without our knowing it. So we decided to test the theory out. Our Russian friends told us they were not "allowed" in our hotel, but we invited them into the lobby anyways. Within minutes, they were escorted outside by what we thought were other tourists... but secretly, they obviously were not!
