Have about BLT'd myself and gardenless neighbor enough to last until next summer's tomato crop.
Work is actually going smoothly thanks to online apps - and hopefully my saying so doesn't jinx this coming week (which is normally the worst week of the entire year). This week's overload brings me to the point I have to bite my tongue the most often in response to thoughts about bureaucracy.
Which brings me to easing my angst by posting this parody, a clever well-made vid by students in Kanas in reaction to all the new fed food regs. (Currently almost 713,000 views, posted September 17th.) Details on the Nutrition Nannies FB page (up to 3,100 likes at the moment, only "born" September 14th) and also recently commented upon by Shepard Smith, a national news commentator (who, per usual, winged it and didn't get it quite right, lol).
Keep in mind that our district trays look much better than those posted on NN FB, because we know how to merchandise. (See ITSMealsProvo on FB.) Which may become a thorn in our side financially I must admit. (And hopefully those in charge face/admit it in time.)
Got invited to dinner in Midway, by my CCH (BYU-Hawaii) roommate.
(Her family is from Switzerland, hence the love of the Midway area.)
The drive up Provo canyon was an amazing plus!
As you can see though, as I neared Deer Creek Dam,
the sky warning was getting iffy.
Half way around the dam, my car was pelted with very angry raindrops.
This is the house, 2011 properly tax values it $640,000, 3,295 sq. ft, .98 acres.
They bought it in 2008, when it was new.
Finding it in the daylight, with the help of the i-4S map update, was a snap.
Finding my way out of there in the dark was another story!
(Figured I'd skip the phone since it was on the mountainside, so would be
a matter of heading down in a southerly direction.)
Finally gave up and pull out the phone after 15 minutes of wandering.
Had a great meal and visit with Erika and look forward to seeing her again ...
would be a nice drive to her cabin home, 40 miles out of Missoula.
She's doing well - has a keeper husband who took her to the temple.
Her first husband, the one I knew in Michigan,
is under lock/key for a ponzi scheme, convicted in 2010.
His then-wife became friends with Erika,
has since gone through the temple,
and others in her immediate family have joined.
So I guess you could say the in absentia ex-husband's bad example
became the opportunity for the good ex-wife's missionary conversion platform.
