What a week this has been ....
Then as the sun slowly rose in the American west it spotted ...
This family of Pokemon Go players parked in front of ...
I headed to the antique mall where I moved everything from one booth, painted the booth white, then moved most of it back in .... In stifling heat! Well at least it made the paint dry fast!
After another hour at the mall finishing up I picked up my book club book at the library and read until Dad got home from the temple.
That night I was off to book club. The flight to LA gave me the time I needed to finish reading the book. Yeah!!
On Saturday Darby was able to start riding Dallas again! Between four vet clinics they've found the problem and started treating him. He has lots of muscle mass and weight to gain. Riding helps with the muscle mass
As it turns out his jaw issue is a cow disease that is highly resistant to antibiotics ... There are now nine documented occurrences in horses world wide. But Darby, despite her thinner wallet, is euphoric.
Sadly Clark's wife Margaret died Friday night ... It made the funeral unbelievable sad for me! I started crying when Clark walked into the chapel ...
Don Sevy spent a lot of his life as a scout leader, including to Emory ... Which was discovered when the Clark Sevys and Emory's family lived in the same ward years ago. What a good man Don is. I know Dad idealized their family life growing up and wanted a family like that. What a good man.
After the funeral we had lunch at La Cocina again, then
We had a couple of hours to kill and hit a couple of SLC DIs.
Jack Mason was there doing photography and invited us to their ward in a couple of weeks for a threefer. Their daughter and son have just returned from missions and another son is leaving. We love it!! (Prayers for Jack who is suffering with cancer/treatments would be appreciated)
Today we had a wonderful set of church meetings! The spirit was very strong. I said the opening prayer and prayed for our ward family. One young man who has difficulty reading at age 15 read his talk, the second councilor stood by him and helped. As he talked about helping a neighbor with his extensive animal collection, mostly birds, I turned to see the neighbor he's mentioned with tears in his eyes. I feel such warmth and love in this extended ward family.
After church Dad and I read in Preach My Gospel before getting food ready for our family get together at Darby's.
Dad and I were a little early so I took Harley for a walk by the nearby ponds hoping for some water Pokemon. Not to be, but there were a lot of horse Pokemon there on Black Horse drive. Enough so that I was able to use them to evolve one to a higher form adding a new Pokemon to my collection!!
How cute is this boy!
Here Maddie plays on Darby's friend's phone. So cute!!
Last of all Dad and I caught the end of the concert in the park.
While walking back to our car our stake mission prep teacher and his wife stopped to tease us for playing Pokemon Go, which they were also playing. They shared some tips too!! (I'm level 10, they are 19 and 20.
So that was our busy week. Long sigh ....
