In MY Day....

there was:

A MALE

or

A FEMALE.

That was it.

And, it was all good.

Now, there are so many genders and I don't even have a clue what they all mean.

Except that, I am often left to wonder.......

What will they mark in those little boxes where you are asked to say if you are:

F

or

M?

A conundrum, for sure.

FREE Pizza Delivery!

It was later in the evening on Friday night.

I heard the sound of children and laughter.

Then, the doorbell rang.

I opened the door, and there on the front porch sitting right on top of the welcome matt was a small piece of pepperoni.  Not on a plate, not wrapped in foil, just sitting on the matt.  I laughed so hard.

Made a loud voice over saying thank you.

Closed the door.  A few minutes later, there was another rap.

This time what awaited me was a green chili.  Just on the matt; just sitting there.

I'm still laughing about it all.

So, here's the deal.  We have new neighbors.

Just a cute, wonderful family with three boys and two very small girls.

The boys were guilty.  They got their gumption from the fact that cousins were visiting.  So, they DARED do it.

After church, there was a knock.  There stood the family....sheepishly and apologetically.

I said, please don't apologize.  I LOVED it.  Allen said thank you for thinking of us.

And, then they handed us a plate of cookies.

WOW!  Such good cookies!


It's going to be great having the Christensens live next door to us!

Everyone Wants to Write a BOOK!

(Except moi!)

I love our mission.  I love the people on the mission.

So, when Elder E mentioned he had written a book, I - as - usual - chatted with him about it.

And, what happened next leaves me still shaking my head.

The book is mine, but I had to pay for it!!!!!!!!

I was simply looking at it, and he said, "Would you like me to sign it for you?"

And, I said, "Oh no....."

But, the whole conversation from here is blur because he informed he it was $16.00.

And, that is how I have the book from a nice guy who got $16.00 out of me, even though I had no intentions to buy it, and probably won't read it.

So very strange.

The Weekend

He didn't really want to go.

It's just a long drive.

The weather didn't look so great.

But, he went.

It WAS a long drive.

The weather was bad for most of the way.

But, nothing can compare to spending time with beloved family.

So, it was great that we went.

We heard Miles at his violin recital.



Eli gave a talk on Sunday.

Eli - doesn't he look handsome there in the middle?  Well, of course, you can't see, so I'll just answer the question.
He looks very handsome indeed.


And, Calder woke up in the very wee hours, saw us in his room and said,

"I don't want you in here."

Now, what could be better than that?
