Today's Saying
Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody's business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy if anything can.

-Thomas Merton

The Pigeon Falls Lion's Club wishes to announce a story writing contest for anybody interested in writing short stories. The Story can be anywhere between one hundred and six hundred words. 'The title must be " I remember when ........"
The story should be obviously false but with a ring of possible truth. ( Figure that out)
There are no real prizes but your story will become part of the ongoing Pigeon Falls story.
More information is available HERE

Yesterday Tommy UK almost confronted the woman he thinks is his birth mother. Twice he went to where she was working and could see her through the window. But both times he chickened out and went to Nancy’s and had a cup of tea and a saffron bun. Nancy told him to pull himself together and just go and do it.
Tonight the big variety show starts. Various people are down at the theater rehearsing their acts. The manager says they will be lucky if they can hold the whole thing to three hours.
Vicki East is working on a revision of the Pigeon Falls song to unveil at this variety show.
Nancy is a bit sad today. It is the anniversary of her first husband’s death. She had been married to Henry Johnson for only a month when he went back to his job as head mechanic for the M&LC railroad . He got careless and somehow fell under the train. Sometimes she believes it was her fault because he was thinking about her instead of paying attention to the job.
Because of the large number of people wishing to tell " I remember when" stories the Liars Club extended their deadline to the end of the month sort of. Well it is the Liar's Club so who knows if they really mean it. They might give one to the middle of next month.


  1. Dang it...I wish Tommy UK would buck up and face the music. Sad about Nancy's hubby. Must have been awful. Woot the variety show...glad I got my tickets :) Aloha

  2. Great quote and accomplished by only ONE so far in the history of the world.

  3. I LOVE that quote! I wish I didn't have such a hard time following it!

    Tommy will ask when the time is right. If he's feeling THAT reluctant, then the time is NOT right yet.

    That Liar's Club... they are such an unreliable bunch!

  4. Tommy needs to drink a cup of courage and get on with it. He's wasting precious time as there is no time like the present. He needs to think of the good things that might come of it. Like all the time he'll get to spend with his mom.

  5. If I can clear my schedule, I plan on putting something together for the Liars Club. (I so hope that isn't a lie!)
