Elder Scott and I served in the Blacksmith Shop together and today, May 27, we served in the Brickyard together. Once a week, at least, we are scheduled to serve together in a site.

I was in the Land and Records site and a couple came in and were looking up Zerah Pulsipher and William Burgess. It was interesting to help them because he is Elder Scott's ancestor so that meant we are related. There names are Linda and Jim Collard from Payson, Utah (801-372-0712). In the process, I was able to find that Zerah had more land here also.
On the 24th, I was in the Log School house. The wagon carrying the Nauvoo Brass Band came right in front of the place and stopped and played a whole song for us. It was great. Like a dork, I didn't get my camera and take pictures. I could have got some great pictures. Maybe another time, hopefully.
Ont the 25th, I was in the Brigham Young Home and two couples came, the Jauzzi's and the Arrinton's. Mr. Arrington has played the part of Brigham Young many times. He said he has been shot right in that home. I asked him, "With a gun?!!" Mr Jauzzi said he liked that, it was funny. It was intimidating to give them a tour, but I did it. At the end, in the council room, Mr. Arrington quoted, very forcefully, Brigham Young's testimony. It was awesome. The sister I was serving with and I felt that it was a blessing to us to have them visit.
Last night, May 26, we performed Sunset on the Mississippi for the first time and we do it again on Monday because it is the monthly change. We do a tribute to all the different armed forces and honor them by singing their songs. Elder Scott gets to carry the Navy flag in and hold it while we sing because he was in the Navy. :)
