The next day I prepared dinner for a couple who just had a new baby. Their other child is just 10 1/2 months old. They are so southern. Sometimes I have a little trouble understanding her with her southern accent. He is young and probably has more guns than anyone should ever have (especially with 2 small children).
In the mornings we get up early and walk around the corner and through the cemetery. This is one of the gravestones up there that I found unusual. Betty Lou obviously has not died yet because there is no death date, but I guess she wanted a stylish photograph on the stone. I love the feather boa and the white gloved hands. Her husband is deceased, but he does look happy. I guess he likes the white boa too.
This last week we were at the Cumberland County Fair (in Crossville). This is our booth. You see in front, Elder Hansen ready to hand out some of the free popcorn we had. Sisters McDonald and Hess are behind him. Elder Stratling is in the back. We also handed out CTR balloons to the kids, cold bottled water and freezer pops. We were there from 4pm to about 9pm each night (except Fri. when Elder Dunn and I took the night off and stayed in Pikesville.)
On our way home from the fair we had
We are enjoying our mission here in Pikeville. It has been raining alot, so it is really green. We don't have that southern accent yet, but we are beginning to understand others who do have it.
We think of you all often.
