The Naked Mole Rat
The Assistants and Office Elders asked we 3 seniors if we'd like to go to Uncle E's for a hamburger lunch. My response was, "Elder Lauper never met a hamburger he didn't like." So off we went to Uncle E's. Talk about a hole in the wall dive, but the burgers were great. Let's just say, Marc and I aren't having dinner tonight! That's Elder Watkins with a double burger, and I don't know what Elder Griffin ordered but they were huge! And Elder Griffin gave out a few fliers for the Gladys Knight fireside along with a Book of Mormon.
I had another good visit with Elder Griffin today. The weather was pretty bad this morning--bad as in lightening and thunder. I'm not sure, but it was probably the President who texted the missionaries and told them to stay close to home or maybe not go out if not necessary and especially not on bikes. So Elder G was telling me about an experience he had when he was about 14. Of course he thought it was great at the time. His family lived near Logan back then, and they had a big porch. He was outside on the porch when lightening struck and split a tree nearby, and it hit so hard that it knocked him off his feet. His grandpa also experienced lightening one time when he was milking a cow. It came down through one cow, up through the next one, then down through the third one, through her udders where grandpa was milking. The first cow died and poor Grandpa never spoke again. Now that's a very sad story.
