january memories.

Well i remember that on the 16 jan 1971 i entered the mission home, where the conference center now stands. Lyle and mam took me down in lyles oldsmobile. then to hit California with the palm trees and 60 degree weather it was a shock. Then i came home on the 21 of jan 1973. to frozen tundra, no girl freind. Randy playing b b all at the west minico jr high school. I changed clothes in the back of dads impala on the way to the school. at half time the little warriorettes did there marching routine, they were cute little girls, little did i know what lay ahead for one of them. I should have yelled Patrice run as fast as you can and dont look back. I'm happy the way things worked out, I have a wonderfull wife and four beautiful daughters, good son in laws, and the best dang grand kids i could have hoped for. I have great friends, good job, and i get to play in the shop all day. If i didnt have january would i appreciate june,.

I'm glad you didn't yell because maybe I would have ran and then I would have missed out on the best part of my life!
