Chain of Giving (or Fools, If you're an Aretha fan)

I got this from my friend Robin B, who got it from Mrs. Moo, who got it from her friend's blog, a Greek Goddess, who got it from her friend's blog, who begat Zorobabel, who begat ...

Anyway, this is my first blog-land chain letter. Mrs. Moo says, "It's a chain of giving and I like this idea." so did Robin, so did I, so did Zorobabel, etc.

Here's how it works.

The first five people to respond to this post, saying they have joined the ranks by posting this "chain of giving idea" on their blog, get something made by me.

Fine Print:

1. It will be within 12 months.
2. It will be something made specifically for you - tho' perhaps not even tangible.

(I may have messed up the rules, in which case, any blog cursing will fall on my shoulders, not yours, should you break this chain that has been going since 1957).

The Prodigal Missionary

We just received our first letter from Elder Eric Pasenelli.

He has emailed us a couple times but this is the first pen to paper and the first pictures we have seen. He is on the Navajo reservation about 150 miles west of where I served, and the pictures reminded me of the time I served there.

He has grown in all ways observable, in maturity, spiritually, intellectually, height and yes, weight. (He says he is working on it.) I wanted to put these pictures online for all to see.

He took some good ones in Winslow that refer to a great song by The Eagles. Anyway, here he is for all to see, we sure love him and are proud of him and the choices he has made.
