Eino called his friend at Homeland Security and told him that there was an indication that Pigeon Falls was going to be attacked by an alien invasion force. His friend just laughed and asked what Eino had been drinking. There will be no help coming from there.
And where in the world is the man in black. Will he arrive in time ?
It looks like our little group is on their own.
Where is that alien force? Why hasn't it come?
As if things weren't complicated enough it is almost time for Pastor Joan to have her baby. The group is trying to get her to go and stay with friends in Iron Mountain until the baby comes but she absolutely refuses to leave them. She says she is Pastor of Last Lutheran which alone can give sanctuary when the battle comes. She has an obligation to be here. Besides if the battle comes and they lose, the entire world will follow and Iron Mountain will not be a place of escape. Herman is afraid she will have the baby in the midst of the battle and they may not be able to get her some help.
She answered that by pointing out several of the women who should be at the church have midwife training. And if everything goes right the Nurse Practicioner may be there as well.

It iis a quiet Monday morning in Pigeon Falls. Tommy UK and Tammy are getting ready to go to school but both think they should stay home. The alien attack could come at any time. Wonder if it comes when they are at school out of the community. The consolidated High School is fifteen miles from Pigeon Falls. But Tommy can't say to the Principal I'm waiting for an alien invasion you'll have to excuse me until the big battle is over.
People are telling mrs Trumble they are hearing strange noises in Danelson's big barn. She has responded that the twon is thinking of buying it so it is being cleaned but how long can they keep the creatures in the barn hidden?
The man in black has not been see and the group is not at all sure he will show up for the battle but Tommy UK is sure. He says that you can rely on the Man in Black's showing up.
The tension is building and building and the group has reached a point where win or lose they would like to have the battle over with.
They have no idea of how many aliens or the extent of their firepower. There is no way to find that out.

Sunday, September 27, 2009

It is Saturday and time to look back on another week in Pigeon Falls. Despite all the planning and plotting concerning the coming aliens life went on pretty much as normal in Pigeon Falls.
Monday- Grandma Moose hung up her washing and did the spit thing with the bouncing heads. She is really getting to like them and the spit has just done wonders for her arthritis.
Tuesday- Bonnie McGregor's daughter came to stay for a week so that Bonnie and her husband could take a mini vacation away from the twins. The family paid for the parents to stay at the Ramada Inn in Marquette and just rest with a pool.
Wednesday- A hungry bear got one of Jon Bergall's cows. First time that has happened since he started farming there. The DNR came and live trapped the bear and moved it far away from the farm.
Thursday-Jack announced he might be closing his Sauna for good this winter and moving to Florida.The news was more disturbing than the possible alien invasion.
Friday- Tommy TW told Nancy, his wife, that when he finishes his current novel he is going to write one about a poltergeist in a coffee shop. Nancy told him nobody would read it as it is too unbelievable.

Saturday, September 26, 2009

One would expect Mrs. Trumble to be worried. She is, after all, part of that small group of people who knows the full extent of the alien menace and the nature of the rag tag defenders. She should at least look somewhat sad but instead people are commenting on the fact that she has never seemed so happy.
It could be the visits from Tommy UK every day, after school , have reassured her that they can win. Tommy UK also seems happier and almost as if he was in a hurry for the battle to begin.
The man in black has not shown up yet but then in the past he has never shown up until Tommy UK really needed him. So that is not much of a surprise.
Tammy , Herman, Calab, and Pastor Joan also seem to look less worried.
It could be that they have done all they can.
The special blankets are piled on a table at the Last Lutheran. Tammy, Calab, and Herman have rehearsed what they are going to do when the time comes. Everybody knows what is expected of them. Pastor Joan and Herman have been doing a lot of praying.
The question of trusting or not trusting the man in black has been left open. At the moment it looks like they have to trust him.
The rag tag bunch will be waiting in the barn and if everything goes right Herman, Tommy UK, and the man in black will face the aliens on a main street cleared of people. The small group in the barn will be their surprise weapon such as it is.

Friday, September 25, 2009

The group held another meeting after school last night. After much discussion bordering on arguing they decided that if and when there is another attack they will have blankets at the Church covered with that special spider web. Calab and Herman will take and throw the blanket over a group of people on the street breaking the alien control. Then they will walk them still protected by the blanket into Last Lutheran and Sanctuary. As rapidly as possible the men in the group and some ladies will be given special hats and blankets and sent out to bring in more. They will in this way get as many off the street as possible before the battle begins.
As far as the man in black is concerned Tommy UK insisted that they trust him and assume that though the heads are on their side they got the story of the man in black wrong.
Late last night both Tommy UK and Tammy left their homes. Tammy returned at 4:00 in the morning and Tommy UK didn't come home at all.
When the first person came to the town hall looking for Mrs. Trumble she came out of the storage room and it looked like she had been crying.

Thursday, September 24, 2009

The piano tuner and his equipment arrived on the morning milk train along with a full contingent of ghost groupies. He was taken first to the town hall and then to the back room of the museum . They wanted him to hear the piano being played but they didn't want him to see that it was being played by a ghost. He was told that people had paid to sit in on the concert and so he would have to wait until it was over. He listened to the concert and remarked that whoever was playing was a master but even such a great player couldn't hide the fact that piano needed tuning.
When the concert was over and the ghost groupies had left then they ushered him and his equipment into the room. Under the agreement he was allowed to look at but not open the piano until he put the blindfold on. He sat down, played each key, opened his equipment case and put on the blindfold.
The lady in charge lifted the top of the piano for him so he could get to the strings and he started.
One hour later he finished. The piano was in perfect tune. They handed him his check. He commented that he felt like he was cheating since they had that expert there guiding him and even tuning some keys for him. He was alone in the room the entire time.

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

The Monday night meeting of Mrs. Trumble, Calab, Herman, Pastor Joan, Tammy, and Tommy UK was held. They have decided:
1. To trust the bouncing heads and wear the caps when they are out of the Church.
2. On hiding their rag tag fighting force in Danelson's big barn on the edge of town.
3. To continue to put off deciding about the man in black.
4. To continue to work on ways to protect the people on the street.
5. To meet again Wednesday evening.
After the meeting Tommy TW went to see Eino and asked for the old video disc.s of the trench when it was active. He intends to study them to see if they can help him make a decision about the man in black. Of course, they might show he was wrong about the bouncing heads and really shouldn't trust them. But the rest of the crew is fairly sure they are on the side of Pigeon Falls.
He spent the rest of the night studying the discs

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Despite the threat hanging over the town life in Pigeon Falls goes on.
Mrs. Trumble has contacted the Piano Tuner in Milwaukee and offered him a hundred dollars over his usual fee if he can tune the museum piano blindfolded. He has agreed to come and try and should arrive on the milk train on Wednesday.
Yesterday ,after Church, Herman, Calab, Tammy, Tommy UK, and Mrs. Trumble met in the fellowship hall of Last Lutheran. They went over the driblet together and then they brainstormed.
A real argument broke out over the man in black. Tommy UK wanted to trust him but Mrs. Trumble was now having some doubts. Calab really trusts the bouncing head and if they say the man in black is not what he claims to be he believes them.
They went on to discuss how to get the people off the street and into the Sanctuary of the church. The aliens have to know that they will be reluctant to fight them if the fight could result in the destruction of all the people on the street.
They agreeded to meet again Monday night after school.

Saturday in Pigeon falls

It is Saturday and time to look back on the week in Pigeon Falls.
Monday- All kinds of strange things happened. People missed fifteen minutes of a program they were watching, a number of people had water overflow and do small amounts of damage, two people were talking on the phone and just stopped without hanging up, some farm animals escaped from gates left open, and according to the cleaning crew at Last Lutheran people went and stood on the rod for fifteen minutes but non of them remembered it later. It was a strange day for Pigeon Falls.
Tuesday-Mrs. Pemberthy had a vision and it scared her half to death. She was looking out at the beautiful sky when these things appeared. Huge spaceships with strange markings circling Pigeon Falls. Strange creatures seemed to drop from the ships to the ground where everybody was just standing on the road. But it was just a vision and it ended. Though she is a Methodist she attends one of Herman's Bible classes and she told Herman about the vision.
Wednesday- Mrs. Trumble contacted a Milwaukee Piano Tuner to see if he could really tune a piano blindfolded. She is still waiting for an answer.
Thursday-Calab gave Tammy and several others new hats.
Friday- Tommy UK gets a new hat.

Saturday, September 19, 2009

Herman explained to Tommy UK all that Calab had told him. Tommy really wanted to believe that what Calab said was true. If it was true then his father was still alive but trapped beyond time in a rift between worlds. Indeed it might have ben his father who got Tammy and Tommy out of the rift they were in. If that was true he might be able to save his father.
On the other hand he had adventures with the man in black. He had shown up whenever Pigeon Falls needed help and had always been part of the solution. He had learned to trust him. Now he wouldr have to forget all that and plot against him.
Further if Calab was telling the truth then Tommy UK had helped seal the opening through which help was coming for Pigeon Falls. The town's destruction would be his fault. It was worse than that as the destruction of all mankind would be his fault.
But he had to decide. If the man in black was evil then Tommy should try to reopen the doorway. If the man in black is good then Tommy should destroy the talking heads. He went back to reading the driblet.

Friday, September 18, 2009

Calab , with great reluctance, told Herman that the man in black was not a friend and not a Guardian. Instead he was part if the alien force that was coming. He had been sent ahead to do three things.
1. Get rid of the Guardian for this sector. The true man in black.
2. Prevent any other dimension from attacking Pigeon Falls.
3. Prevent any dimension from sending help by sealing off doorways.
The real Guardian he had trapped in a rift between worlds while convincing the Guardian Council he had been destroyed by demons.
The bouncing heads, woolly elephant like things, and the giant spider were part of a group coming to help defend Pigeon Falls not attack it. The man in black got Tommy UK to help seal the opening to prevent that help not save Pigeon Falls.
Herman knew that Calab believed what he was saying but was it true? Or had Calab been mislead by the bouncing heads? How could one tell?
Perhaps the driblet would help.

Thursday, September 17, 2009

The ARmy

Yesterday Calab's bouncing heads brought him a hat. It contained what looked like giant spider webs . When he put it on the communication between the heads and his mind became much clearer. They assured him the hat would also protect him from the power that caused all the people to stand on the road. Then they told him that a great battle was coming that would begin with Pigeon Falls but if it was lost here the alien force would go on to take over the world. The future of mankind now depended on Pigeon Falls. They revealed other things to Calab as well which he had a hard time believing.
Calab then went to Last Lutheran and shared with Herman what he had discovered. Herman listened but had to wonder if the heads had mislead Calab. According to Calab when the battle came Pigeon Falls had Herman, Calab, three bouncing heads, three woolly elephant type creatures, one giant spider, one alien with a weapon, the dragons, Tommy UK and possibly the poltergeist on their side.
Herman asked " What about the man in black?"

Wednesday, September 16, 2009


Herman, Pastor Joan, and Tommy UK are convinced they have seen the beginning of Petrovich's latest driblet. The other people in the Church cleaning crew are not at all sure of what they saw but they are very much afraid of what is coming.
The people who stood on the street and the highway for fifteen minutes seem unaffected by the event. They don't remember anything about it. Their life continues as it did before.
Old Mrs.Pemberthy was watching and old tear jerker on TV and can't understand how she missed the best part but she assumes she fell asleep in her chair. She does do that sometimes.
Tom Olson was watching a football game and can't understand how he missed two touchdowns. He is blaming the network.
The entire town of Pigeon falls and visitors seem to have no recollection of the vent.
Calab says that his friends the bouncing heads have been asking him why he stood on the road but he tells them he didn't. At least he doesn't think he did. They further point out that while he was on the road his mind was closed to them. They tried to contact him and couldn't. They promised him they would study what had happened and try to protect him in the future.

Strange Day

The strangest thing happened in Pigeon Falls yesterday. At 4:00 in the afternoon everybody left their houses or cottages, or places of business and stood for fifteen minutes in the middle of the road. That everybody except the cleaning crew at Last Lutheran and Tommy UK. They are the ones that noted what time it started and how long it lasted.
They just stood there. They looked like statues. they didn't say anything and they didn't do anything. When it was over they returned to what they were doing and nobody remembers even standing on the road.
Tommy UK says that part of him wanted to join his adoptive parents and sister on the road and part of him kept asking why. So he ended up just watching. After it was over his parents were sure they hadn't left the house, as was his sister.
Nancy who was seen from the Church standing on the road swears she never left the coffee shop, but she can't explain how a batch of saffron buns burned .

A Cross

Despite Petrovich and Herman’s vision life goes on and Pastor Joan has a sermon to preach today. Here is a part of that sermon:
“ I saw on television last week a man who had cancer three times and was fighting to stay alive. He said to the announcer that this was his cross to bear.
I remember a mother who after being told that he only son was serial killer said “ He has always been a heavy cross to bear for me.”
There was a skier who lost his foot in an accident who remarked “ this is my cross to bear.”
My question this morning is what is your cross?
Then what does that cross have to do with Jesus?
There are two kinds of crosses in our life.
Those we are stuck with.
And those we choose.
You see when you hear this text that I read this morning you almost always think of the first kind of cross.
You think of illness or bad things that have happened to you.
You think of what gives you pain and over which you have little control.
The kind of cross Jesus speaks of in the text is not this kind.
The kind of cross Jesus speaks of doesn’t happen to us we choose it.
We take it up and follow Him.
We choose to suffer in His service.
There was a great English Doctor who was in great demand. He could have asked for and received very large fees but he gave all that up and went and worked in a leper colony. He choose to work in a leper colony.
He ended up with leprosy. He choose this cross.
He choose to follow Christ into a life of service.
He took up a cross.
What difficult thing does God want from you today?
Perhaps, He wants you to forgive somebody you hate. To make the first move to bring reconciliation. The person may reject you. Rejection hurts.
Take up your cross.
Perhaps God is calling you to help the homeless but the way to do that is costly, hard, even dangerous.
Take up your cross.
What does God want you to do that you don’t want to do for whatever reason.
Take up your cross and follow Him.

Sunday, September 13, 2009

End of Week

It is Saturday and time to look back on the week in Pigeon Falls.
Monday- The bouncing head showed up in Grandma Moose's driveway again while she was hanging up sheets on the line. It spat and she spat back. They both smiled. She isn't afraid of them anymore and she swears that the spit is the best cure for rheumatism in the knees.
Tuesday- The poor DNR Agent has no idea how a woolly elephant like creature can move in the woods without leaving a trail of some kind. But it seems to be doing just that. He knows there is at least one out there . He saw it in the Pigeon Days parade. But Calab isn'yt talking and he can't find a trace. His boss in Lansing wants a picture. He doesn't have one of those either. Soon he may be called in to see the agency psychologist.
Wednesday- Nancy noticed that people were becoming less and less concerned about the latest Petrovich Driblet. People coming in were now more concerned with ghost piano tuning.
Thursday- Herman and Tommy UK met to talk over the driblet. Herman shared his vision with Tommy and Tommy noted that when the event came the Church would be a sanctuary. He wanted to be sure his adoptive parents and Tammy got to the Church.
Friday-Tommy UK tried to use his rock to take him to the man in black but the attempt failed. He needed a vision of where the man was.

Saturday, September 12, 2009


Since Petrovich posted his latest driblet Herman has been setting aside time every day to pray for Pigeon Falls and Last Lutheran. He is praying that God would protect Last Lutheran from whatever is coming. He is praying that God would protect Pastor Joan and her unborn baby. He is praying for power to fight the evil.
In the midst of such a prayer he had a vision. A black shadow fell over Pigeon Falls but Last Lutheran put out a light of its own. People in the Church could not be touched by the shadow.
Herman shared his vision with Pastor Joan who was doing her own praying. She believed Herman had a real vision.
She knew most of her fellow pastors and her Bishop would think she was crazy but they hadn't lived in Pigeon Falls. Pigeon Falls changes your perspective on things.
She told her husband that at the first sign that something was happening she was going to the Church and would stay there until it was over. Her husband knew better than to argue with her.
Mrs. Trumble continued to look for some way to tune the piano. She read all the adds by piano tuners in the Milwaukee paper and one add jumped out at her. It said:
" So good we can tune a piano blindfolded".

Friday, September 11, 2009

Tune that Piano

So the piano at the moment remains untuned . Mrs. Trumble has no idea how to find a sane person that talks to ghosts." Where?" she wonders , " Would you advertise for such a person." Perhaps one of the ghost groupies that keep coming in to hear the piano player would know. She'll have the museum attendant ask them.
The other possibility, a blind piano tuner , also seems impossible to advertise for. They wouldn't be reading the help wanted adds.
In addition to the piano nonsense, Petrovich's driblet, and the day to day tasks that come with being Mayor of Pigeon Falls Tommy UK is driving her nuts. He keeps asking her if she is sure his father is dead. She was sure but Tommy's constant pushing has begun to raise questions in her mind. Did she accpt the man in black's explanation too quickly. Should she have pushed for more information? Perhaps, the next time he stops by ,and this latest Petrovich thing is almost sure to bring him, she will ask again about the end of Tommy's father.
Tammy , on the other hand, is telling Tommy to accept the fact that his birth father is dead and stop obsessing over it. She thinks he needs to grow up.

Ghost Piano

Mrs. Trumble and Nancy were joined in their conversation by a lady named Quilly. She is in Pigeon Falls visiting from Hawaii . She said she didn't mean to intrude on their conversation" but what if the ghost whisperer sends the ghost away? Then the shoes will be lonely and they'll probably never dance again."
Neither Mrs. Trumble or Nancy had thought of that. But then that might be the right thing to do. Perhaps, it's time for the piano player and the dancer to go home. They would be missed, of course, but it would be selfish on the part of the town to hang on to them when they could move on.
But then the whole question is academic since they don't know where to find a ghost whisperer.
Quilly also suggested they ask the ghost to call a ghost piano tuner. The problem is they don't know how to talk to the ghost. He plays and he is silent. He pays no attention to them. At the moment he doesn't seem to notice that the piano is out of tune.
It has been over a week since Petrovich posted the driblet and nothing has happened. People are starting to relax. It could be this time the driblet doesn't apply to Pigeon Falls but to some other city of the birds. It is possible the translation is bad or the Seer had a bad vision. One can always hope.

Piano Tuning sort Of

Mrs. Trumble stopped in to Nancy's for a cup of tea and a saffron bun. She shared with Nancy the problem with tuning a piano half of the parts of which are there but aren't there. Nancy suggested they get a Ghost Whisperer like they have on television to help them. Mrs. Trumble pointed out that it was just a TV show and not real life. In real life there probably are no such things as Ghost Whisperers.
At that Nancy began laughing. We livge in a town that dragons fly over, that has a whale in the lake, where a ghost plays a piano, where bodyless heads roll around and spit and you don't think there can be Ghost Whisperers in real life.
The conversations was interupted by a cup of coffee rising from the table and then smashing to the floor.
" Woops!" Nancy said" And where a poltergeist inhabits a local coffee shop, and a sensative poltegeist at that."
" So how do we find such a person?" Mrs. Trumble asked.
" I'm willing to bet that the governments men in black have a list. You know Eino's friend sent them when our piano playing ghost first showed up." Nancy quickly stated.

The Piano

The Piano Tuner came from Iron Mountain this morning. He got to listen to but not see the morning concert. He told Mrs Pirtilampi , who was the volunteer in charge, that the piano was only slightly out of tune. He didn't think he would have any trouble tuning it. He really did want to meet that fantastic piano player.
Mrs. Pirtilampi understanding that he didn't know the piano player was a ghost simply told him that it wasn't possible because the player had to rush off to another engagement.
The piano tuner opened the piano and looked confused. " Are you sure this is the piano that was played this morning?" , he asked " Because I don't see how that was possible as half the pieces are missing." He sat down at the piano and playe a song. It was just slightly out of tune. "That's impossible", he said" It plays things that aren't there. I can't tune things I can't see ". He picked up his tools , closed up his case and left.
Mrs. Pirtilampi called Eino and he called Mrs. Trumble. She thought they either needed a blind piano tuner or a ghost that tunes pianos and she didn't have the slightest idea where to find either one.

14th sunday

Sunday morning and Pastor Joan is getting ready to preach. She loves preaching. She hates the thought of giving up her pulpit while she is out having the baby. On the other hand she is really looking forward to the baby. This is part of her sermon:
In the last half of the gospel for today we meet a deaf man. Jesus takes him aside and heals him. I’m glad TV Evangelists aren’t using this as a model for healing services. Just think of all the spitting they would be doing not to mention the sighing.
The healing is a pretty much your ordinary healing. He couldn’t hear. Now he can. He couldn’t talk very well. Now he can Just your ordinary healing. But then Jesus orders them and him to tell nobody about the healing. He doesn’t ask. He orders!
Now If Jesus had just performed a miracle for you wouldn’t you obey Him? Wouldn’t you happily do what he ordered.
But instead they run around telling everybody.
The surprise here is that Jesus doesn’t take the healing back. The healed failed to obey. He shouldn’t be allowed to keep the healing.
I know Christians who think like that.
It’s Get saved! Get in Line! Get things right! Or lose it.
God doesn’t take back His miracles.
He doesn’t.
We would if we were God.
Thank God we aren’t God.
If you were in the hospital dying of cancer and Jesus suddenly appeared and healed you. Then he ordered you to tell nobody it was Him. Could you keep it quiet.
When the Doctor’s probed and tested. When they decided the chemo had worked at the last minute .Would you still keep silent.
When your atheist friend says to you that you should thank science for your healing. Can you still keep silence ?
When your little girl says daddy where was God when you needed Him? Will you hold it in?
When the Pastor asks people to share the little miracles in their lives can you sit on this big one ?
I really doubt it.
We are what we are as human beings.
We are broken, imperfect , sinners. But God never takes back his blessings.
When we fail he picks us up.
He forgives.
He restarts us.
Praise God.

Pastor Joan

With roughly a month and a half to go Pastor Joan is wishing it was time already. She has tried to keep a full schedule and not let her pregnancy interfere with her ministry but she feels so tired. She looks in the mirror and thinks that she looks like a balloon. She feels the baby kick and she is excited but she is still tired. Her last check up showed that the baby was doing fine. If only it were late October and she could hold him in her arms. But it isn't. She has an appointment later this morning with Herman. She wants him to fill in while she is having the baby and spending some time with it. She is going to have the congregation commission him to do Communion and if the Bishop doesn't like it, TOUGH. She doesn't plan on being gone long and Herman will do well.
She sits back and marvels at how God works. It wasn't too long ago that Herman was one of the town drunks, drunk more than sober. But now he was a spiritual soldier in God's army. One of God's marvelous surprises. How can people keep from believing?
She trys to set all those thoughts aside and get back to working on the sermon for tomorrow.

Friday, September 4, 2009

The piano that the ghost plays every morning needs tuning. It has slowly gone out of tune. Old Ilmari Noronen who tunes most of the pianos in Pigeon Falls won't touch it. He says it is too fancy and he doesn't have the right tools but rumor has it he is afraid of ghosts.
Mrs. Trumble has a piano tuner coming from Iron Mountain. It's going to cost $100 but he assured her he has the right tools and will have no trouble in the tuning. She didn't mention the ghosts. She did arrange for him to come in the afternoon when the ghost is quiet and the shoes just sit there.
The ghost groupies don't seem to care that the piano is out of tune but the museum volunteers have and it bothers them. They worry that it will keep getting worse until the piano simply can't be played then they will lose a large source of musuem income. It's always about the money.

Life Goes On

Chief Ican stopped by Mrs. Trumble's office to ask about the driblet. He thought the entire thing was crazy and couldn't understand how the entire town seemed scared by it.
Mrs. Trumble explained how previous driblets had proved to be sort of true or at least true enough to convince people not to disregard them.
Chief Ican said that it was like trying to solve a crime that hadn't been committed yet. Where do you start.
Mrs. Trumble suggested he go down to Nancy's and just listen to the rumors.
So all morning Chief Ican has been having coffee with Nancy and has discovered he has lots to pick from.
From the moment Pastor Joan read the driblet the word Oops kept popping into her mind but she had no idea as to why. " What in this world or out of this world is an Oops?" she thought. She was sure it was not a biblical reference. But it had to have some kind of meaning.
Poor Tommy UK was now wondering if his birth father was still alive. He was sure Mrs. Trumble hadn't lied but the man in black might have lied to her. But why would he do that? Why did he want her to think Tommy's father was dead? Tommy was basing his hope on the feeling that the man that got them out of the other dimension was his father. Being with him had felt different than when he worked with the man in black the other times.
Tammy told him it was his imagination. Things were different because they didn't think they would ever get back and were under a lot of stress.

Fear and the Driblet

The newest Petrovich Driblet translation has everybody upset.
Rumors as to what it means abound.
Nancy gets a new rumor almost with every cup of coffee.
Some believe there will be an air borne plague. Only the " others" whoever they are will be immune and can provide an antidote.
Some think aliens from outer space will come and the town will need the usual super heroes to save it. They are the " others".
Some believe the problem will come from the bouncing heads and the big woolly elephants. Only the man in black and those like him " the others" can save them.
Mrs. Trumble has made copies of the translation and is giving them to anybody who wants them. She thinks that the more people working on the problem in advance the better.
Tommy UK hasn't seen the driblet yet. He has been staying in his room except for meals. He is trying to work through the fact that his birth father is dead. He had really hoped it was the man in black. He wanted it to be the man in black. But now he knows, but doesn't want to accept , the fact that his birth father is dead. Perhaps, it was better not knowing.
Herman, has been in prayer since he read the driblet. He is asking that the Holy Spirit would fill and protect him so he could join the " others" .

Petrovich is Back

Today's Saying
No ones afraid of heights, they are afraid of falling, no ones afraid of swimming they are afraid of drowning and no ones afraid of loving they are afraid of not being loved back.

On this beautiful September morning Petrovich posted his latest driblet.
It reads as follows:
It was a beautiful day in the city of the birds.
Leaves were falling.
Then the evil came.
From above it came.
Strange things from above.
The town can not escape.
Evil covers it.
Evil controls it.
Trust the others.
Trust the free one’s.
Without them there is no hope.
All are slaves.
Evil wins.
First here and then.
The world.
Trust the free one’s.
I awake. I am terrified. I need a drink.
Translated from driblet 184 of the great seer Alexis Grengicoff
