Mr Sam's life

It is some what funny now we are looking at airports he will land at. These two airports give me comfort of the reason why I have life insurance on him. There isn't much in the way of communication on these two islands. I will hopefully be able to track him on my stalking sights. I know where he is most days. If I forget what day he is having then I am in trouble. I am used to him going the other direction so going backwards is something i will have to set up a temporary clock for. Oh the life of Mr Sam.

Some one didn't want to do this , but I won.

Another year older and wiser too??????

Elder S.... a picture says a thousand words.
Elder P had a birthday. Cakes aren't really my specialty. They taste good but as far as presentation I loose the competition. He requested an Oreo cake( Oreo's mysteriously appeared this past week in time for this)
It took four shots to get this...... how old are we??

Road Trip... Nauvoo

We did a couple of quick high lights for Elder S since he has not been there before. I made them pose for a picture. Nosey Man to Mr Sam: Is this their P day? Mr Sam to Nosey Man: No, its their Nauvoo Pageant night. DAGraveyard and the Brick making place.
I'm hot and its not the hormonal hot.... maybe the attitude is a little. 102F 90% humidity.
Down by the Sip, they didn't really want to pose for very long. They actually asked me if I was done yet??
This is my favorite barn on the way there. The past couple of years the vines have been alive and it has been all green. This year its soy beans around it. When its corn its not as visible for any good pictures.

Burn Baby Burn

It is some strange thing they do and it seems to please them. In all actuality its the pyro in every male. Excuses ha
I don't think I would want to have this white shirt on if i were on fire ....
In a a matter of negative 10 seconds this shirt was engulfed.

To hot to handle.

1/2 mark , a mile stone in the life of a missionary

You know us we always have to eat for a celebration. Elder F
We are all happy to be here, Elder P
Elder S checking out his brat to see if its really done or not...
Elder C were he has gone before, gotta love those brats . Now on to the business at hand..

Mellow Time in 100 degree heat

Do you like them burned or light toasty brown on all sides?
Between the humidity, the heat , night time was pretty close to Abu Dhabi ambiance.

Happiness is one of the many blessings that the gospel of Jesus Christ brings us...
