Tommy UK told Tammy this morning who he believes his birth mother is. Together they have come up with a plan to get her to admit it. Tammy suggested at first that he should just go and tell her he knows she is his birth mother . She probably would agree and that would be that. But Tommy UK is afraid she would simply deny it. She would tell him you couldn’t trust hypnosis and he would never know for sure. So Tammy reluctantly agreed to go along with his plan.
Before he puts the plan into action he intends to tell Eino and Mrs. Trumble and get their support. He feels that he is almost there. Soon he will know why she put him out for adoption.
He wonders if she didn’t love him, if she hated children, if his father did something to her. He has so many, many questions that only she can answer and he can hardly wait to get the answers.
Petrovich is hard at work on the translation of another driblet. Mrs. Trumble is hoping that whatever horrible thing it predicts will not happen until after Pigeon Days. Her worst nightmare is a parade of demons down the main street on the day of the big Pigeon Falls Day parade.
The ghost tours continue pouring money into the Pigeon Falls economy. It would seem that people who chase ghosts are too rich to be effected by the economic turndown or they are willing to use what little resources they have to be here. The museum ghost concert fills up every day. The great invisible piano player continues to play and the shoes keep dancing. The money generated from the morning concerts is enough to keep the museum open all year round, except for the two weeks in December when the ghost seems to take a Christmas vacation.
Nancy continues to search the internet for a new lower cost source for her saffron. She really does not want to raise the cost of her saffron buns in this economy.
