I'm not technologically intelligent enough to use books on line. Hopefully someday you can have them printed.

Seminary. In Utah, we had release time. The teachers usually gave you As even if you didn't deserve them. Show up, play along, and you got an A. To me, it was an escape from regular school. It was when I first read the BofM. I liked all my seminary teachers. One actually called me Lemuel because of a book I was reading. It was a joke. I became close friends with another one.

I sent my son and daughter to seminary even if they didn't go to church. I thought they would enjoy the release time. It wasn't a break from school after all. I also thought they could learn something about mormonism and decide for themselves as I hadn't really decided myself yet. My son hated it. It was SERIOUS business when they went here in Cache Valley. My son didn't go very often and they would call my "husband." They didn't understand that we didn't care if our kids went. My daughter's take on seminary was that she was going to hell. We had a LONG talk about that issue. She hated mormonism for many years and then she became a mormon on steroids.

with things like this. So do my ex and my boyfriend, so I just give up. I have a pdf file I have to send and I'm having trouble getting it to download in the right place without getting an error and they just shake their heads slowly and walk off. I guess I'm a pain. I don't have a lot of patience for computers. My brain just shuts down now. I've trained for so many accounts and so many programs with my work that I'm just worn out.

Wow. Amazingly good. Poignant, as ever.

Which line, cricket? The first one is fabulous. (And the rest). But I bet you like the Aurora one.

And point us to Don's work. I'm in awe.

But also, sad for that little boy that was.
