Hi everyone. Today served in the Blacksmith shop--my horseshoes look like they were intended for a horse with twisted hooves--I am getting better. Beverly served in the Heber C. Kimball Home. It was kind of a quiet day--not as many guests as yesterday. I had a little free time so I went to the Lands and Records Office. I was able to get a map showing the property that Grandpa Abraham Washburn owned. I haven't gone looking yet. It appears it will be in an inhabited portion of town. I also checked on Great grandpa Thompson. Now, he had the coolest lot in town. He had two lots but the one I like is on a bluff overlooking the river--fabulous view. The other lot appears to be the property our mission president lives--needless to say, he has the best home in town--do you think he would share since that property was once our ancestors? Sister Harris' Great Great Grandpa Mayer lived in a home across the street and where we live now adjoins that of Heber C. Kimball's and kiddie corner to Mayors home.
I want to just note that the Temple President is Spencer Condie, (GA Emeritus). He spoke at a Sociable (Fireside) Sunday Night. HE IS TERRIFIC. He kept even me wide awake. He was telling humorous stories about General Authorities. Our leaders truly have a human side as well as spiritual.
Every Wednesday we have a mission training at 8 am--On Friday we have a mission breakfast--there are not many dull moments around here--Cheers to all. Elder Harris
