September 13, 2012:
We went to Rendezvous last night and what a surprise. Bishop Sheldon and Suzanne Taylor were there. We knew they were coming because they had talked to us at home and called us last week, but we thought we would see them this evening.
We are going out to eat or something with them tonight. They are not staying in Nauvoo very long. Possibly only today. They said they are going to the temple this morning.
Elder Scott is scheduled to serve in the Browning Gun Home and Shop today. I am scheduled in the Lyon Drug and Variety Store. Haven't been there for quite a while, should be interesting. Of course, because of going home for 3 weeks, that is true of most sites. It's terrible how fast I forget. Must be getting old :). Or must have already got old!
I guess our borders (Gibsons) are leaving for home tomorrow. Then we will be all alone in our little house. Five couples and one single sister missionary left yesterday. That makes 39 people leaving since last week, counting Elder and Sister Hoopes (he had to go home for chemotherapy for bone cancer).
It is cloudy today and the wind is blowing; not hard though. Hope it rains.
Well, better go study the script for Lyon Drug.
This evening we had a treat. We went out to eat with Sheldon and Suzanne. It was so nice to see and visit with them. I ate way too much but it was good food.
The Gibsons came down and used our internet tonight. He couldn't get on it upstairs and wanted to check out the weather. They gave us their left over food.
I served with Sister Rawlings today. It was nice to get to know her a little. We haven't served together before. Elder Rawlings is painting in the homes and stuff for Facilities Management.
Better go read and go to bed.
