Pigeon Falls Restored

The weather was a bit warmer[the temp was 25 F when we went to church], but warmed so I could work with a sweatshirt with hood, and gloves on Pigeon Falls. I walked around to start with picking up roof pieces. I could not find a roof for one building, so I put it away. I picked up one ferriswheel and rounded up the people on it. I leaned the front of the Ghost House on the other three walls. The snow and wind had their toll but there were many hoof prints also. My mum flowers were eaten I am afraid but the other flowers were frozen. If it is warm enough Pigeon Falls will go away this week. I will miss this town but hopefully an other will be built in Neenah.

My sister came and visited with us on Saturday. I feel she had a miracle. After seeing a number of doctors who told her in effect they could do nothing she found UCLA and they could treat her with out surgery. She looked very healthy, but we won't know for six months. Thank you very much for your prayers.

A little on the dancers on the other post. The dances are from Finland. The college in Hancock was founded by those of Finish heritage. The college was called Suomi. They sewed[the parents] the costumes and they are one piece even though they do not look like it.

Very sorry to hear about Pigeon Falls, I have to confess it's taken me quite a while to "get it", but I'm there now. Oh, the kids have just got up so I've got to go and make breakfast. Bye for now.

Pigeon Falls is a dreamy place. A place of magical happenings that takes me away for minutes at a time daily. How i thank you and Dr. John for all that you do. His stories, your hard work.

I pray that Guardian Angels hold you as you climb stairs. Pls be careful and thank you for all the pics and all such hard work Betty.

I'm so happy for your sister and you honey. I believe in Miracles. Keka is a walking miracle. Her skin is softer from turning stone like. Never had they seen that before. She is also in remission and she got there without that horrible medications. All the prayers and the positive thoughts and the love and God's Mercy did it for us here too. And for me, the Holy Water from Lourdes was a great help..before we were given to us by a child from school, her bad skin was just growing and growing and it was so hard..and now, her skin is soft, tender but soft and she is flexible there...God can do it all.God is good. And He helps in many ways, through the help of wonderful doctors and new experiments and procedures..May the people at UCLA be blessed for making another walking miracle.

I love you Betty. you are so darn wonderful. all my heart to you sweet.

I have never seen Finnish dancing in person. I don't think it is performed here in Houston. I have seen live Russian Cossack dancing, though. If you've never seen that, try to find a group that does it. It is spectacular.

Pidgeon Falls is a great place to live for so many-especially Mrs. Trumble, anyway!

The thought of Pigeon Falls going away pains me. That being the case, I can only imagine how you and Dr. John feel about it.

I am glad to hear about your sister. Still, I will keep her in my prayers.

I think all of us think of Pigeon Falls with much love, don't want to think of a time when there isn't a Pigeon Falls. So I do hope that you rebuild.

I am glad for you and your sister, Dr.'s offer such different treatment and hope. Once you have found a good one, it sure does help. We will keep her in our thoughts.

Packing up a whole town can be a big job. =O)

I'll surely keep your sister and her health in our prayers. They really have made leaps in the medical field. The university hospitals have their good and bad points. But I must admit with my Mom's year long fight with BC - I'm so glad she's at a university hospital. They've really turned things around and she's doing great.
