archive hearsay from the junction

introduction to the chronicle

 Here is what certain unnamed sources have to say about polka dot junction's one and only "chronicle"

  • incessant rumination

  • pure unadulterated gibberish

  • good old fashioned gossip


     


March 12,2018  2:40pm

Wow, it's already March 12.  We have been on a bit of a winter hiatus if there is any such thing as that.  The news is that scarecrow seems to have taken to his job as the barista with much success! No one seems to care that he can't remember the names of all the coffee drinks!

Also in the works is a plan to open an extension on the back of cafe pdj.  It will be called "the coffee caboose" and will be in one of the several empty cabooses scattered throughout the junction. scarecrow may manage that until the fall.  In the meantime please check out our interesting selection of coffee mugs!

 pdj cafe hires it's very first barista and guess who it is?

Apparently one, of the scarecrow triplets dazzled with his natural talent to "simply hang". We'll be interested too, see 
how he fairs in terms of the coffee thing.

Wow, they said it would start snowing in polka dot junction and surrounding areas at 5pm and it actually did! This is not hearsay, it's actual fact.
Do we celebrate the accuracy of weather reporting in this day and age or this product from polka dot junction???

It’s February 9 and at polka dot junction we celebrate this memorable day in history.  There is not a resident old or young who doesn’t know the importance of February 9, 1964.  If you don’t know, perhaps this picture of our very own Beagles Four will spark your memory. Together again for a reunion concert, perhaps a little rusty now (they never made it on to The Ed Sullivan show) but the feeling is there.

Those who enjoy the vocal creations of the three tenor beagles might be interested to hear that they will be performing at the coffee and wine tasting to be held at the pdj cafe. A date hasn't been set, but it's something to look forward to in the midst of this brutally cold winter weather that we are experiencing.

The "politics" of polka dot junction

It is pretty obvious that dots and stripes have enjoyed a long run at pdj. It is also rumored that a few independent and less visible design groups have been revealed as the checkerboards, the abstracts and the flowers. Apparently, the flowers have been struggling for more visibility and are now identifying themselves as "flower children". For some reason that sounds familiar. In the introduction of several new items this week, it appears that "flower power" is alive and well at the junction. Note the simple irony of how the flowers and the checkerboards work harmoniously together to create some slammin' new designs!

Ah yes, that's Charlie the Peagle (beagle and pekingese ). We knew there could be trouble when someone in our beagle community chose to reach outside of his so-called "pure breeding" and strict cultural mores. You can celebrate with this pillow, also available on several other items.

Now that the brutally cold single digit temperatures that welcomed in 2018 have passed, the mayor has lifted the ban on travelling beyond a 3 block radius of home for all residents. This presented no problem for the majority. Although hesitant to name names, there is a list circulating underground of possible violators. It appears that most are members of the witch community, who due to their highly achieving and competitive natures, refused to cancel "Take-off and Landing Practice". The smooth transition from running with to mounting of the broom is not only challenging but crucial to one's reputation in the community and the same goes for the dismount. The addition of Wi-Fi and GPS to the newest line of broomsticks has garnered mixed reviews, but to date, none of them have heat.
