News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal
Tommy UK found himself back in his room . The last few days seemed like a dream.
First he had been in his room.
Then the man in black came.
Then he dressed in black and suddenly wasn’t in his room.
Then he and the man in black waited in the woods for what the man in black called “ the right time”.
While they waited they sent strange creatures back to the trench but only at night.
Tommy used his ring to push them along.
Then came the moment and the man in black destroyed all of Eino’s lights and cameras.
In pitch black at the end of the trench they waited for the door to open.
When it did both Tommy and the man in black concentrated their power on the door.
From them came a beam of light and suddenly the door exploded and was no more.
Then slowly the trench disappeared.
The man in black said it would never return.
Then Tommy found himself back in his room.
And he still didn’t know much about the man in black.
It could have been a dream.

Wrap UP
I spent the morning looking for six pictures for the next Portrait of Words set. I found them and they will ( I hope) show up on the Portrait of Words sight on Wednesday. I visted all of my active Friends links. I just love it when I have time to read that many blogs. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Great getting to know more about you. We have two things very much in common. My penmanship is horrible and I played an accordion. Thank you Lawrence Welk.

I certainly hope that Tommy UK used his ring wisely.

Well... I hope Tommy ran out to see if the trench REALLY was gone... I'm sure it was! Isn't it just like the MIB to show up, help Tommy (or have Tommy help HIM) and still not let on who he is! MiBs... they're sneaky! And tricky!

I didn't learn a single thing from your meme today. I don't type "kik" instead of lol... I tend to go the other way and type ;p; ...

The moment we stop asking questions to get answers we are grown up may be.

Now I know you better. I want to see your birdhouse paintings, and you are not the only one who is asked to stop when he starts singing !
Belgium is the ideal country for "singing in the rain" it rains all the time too !

Great meme. I grinned all the way through your answers. We can play chess together. You might just win. My nephew beat me when he was only 6!

Tommy doesn't remember! Bummer!

Don't stop singing, Dr. John. After all, we are told to make a joyful NOISE! ;)

I am sorry about the roller coasters. That makes me sad.
