Catching Up

Today's Saying
If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers. ~Edgar W. Howe

On Saturday Patrick Marvel, son of a former Pastor of Last Lutheran won the 4K Yellow Brick Road Race. Only one contestant twisted an ankle and he was treated in the local clinic.
Jon Bergall won the spouse carrying contest . People were surprised to see them entered since the last time they ran he ended up dropping her . Runner up was Hilda Salmi from Detroit whose husband is just a little guy. She might have won but when they were going through the kiddy wading pool he made some remark about her not getting him wet and she paused to think about dumping him in the pool but then went on. That cost her ten or eleven seconds and she only lost by five.
The Teddy Roosevelt Train was a great success . With all the old costumes you felt like it was really that time. In fact some of the tourists really looked confused.
The last night of the Variety show has been hailed by most of those who were there as the greatest Variety show ever. This time Calab stood alone on the stage and the heads came bouncing to him. It was spectacular, really spectacular. The Choirs were great. The Abbot and Costello Act finally got its lines right and was hilarious. The only thing missing was the new Pigeon Falls song whick Vicki East didn’t get finished. She did, however close the show with the old one.


  1. I had a wonderful time at the variety show. It doesn't matter that Vickie didn't have the new song ready. She sang the old one perfectly.

  2. Vickie will certainly have that song ready for NEXT year's Pigeon Falls Days! Hilda should have dumped him! If it cost her the race just thinkin' about it, she might as well have done it!!! LOL~!

  3. I'm with Melli - she should have dumped him. If you're going to make that kind of comment - then you're taking your chances to begin with.

  4. Well the variety show was wonderful...with or without a new song. I also agree with the women here that Hilda should have dumped him. I know if it was reversed...I would have dumped her LOL

  5. And a good time was had by all. :)
