Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017 – Brick Yard, Weeding & Hedging at HCK Home, Information Kiosk, Elder Ross Johnson(3) Debut
Our full day of work started at the Brick Yard. It’s been four weeks since we weeded the Brick Yard sidewalks. The sidewalk is made of brick paving stones and the cracks between the stones are full of sand and a perfect place for weeds to grow. The Brick Yard needs our attention all year long.
Our next stop was at the historic Heber C Kimball Home. We spent a lot of time there weeding the flowerbeds. We also trimmed the long hedge on the west side of the lot. It has been a year since the last trimming and it was a lot of work. FM’s hedge trimmer I use is sharp and efficient; it really does the job well. The hedge looks much better now.
Early this morning we had to leave our big trailer at the mechanic’s shop for repair. The electrical connector/plug was broken and had to be replaced. Elder Lindeburg works in the automotive repair shop here at FM. Prior to his mission to Nauvoo, he has spent his professional carrier as an auto mechanic and he knows his stuff. He had the replacement jack done very quickly. By mid-morning we had our trailer back with working brake lights again. Good job Elder Lindeburg!
In the past few weeks and again tonight in our “Rendezvous in Old Nauvoo” show the torch was passed to the new generation of performing missionaries. Tonight it was Elder Ross Johnson3’s turn to step up and take the place of a departing missionary. Elder Johnson3 did a great job as “The Editor” in Rendezvous. Mind you, this part is no small undertaking. The part of “Editor” is the single largest scripted part in the whole production. The Editor has speaking lines in every single scene and vignette in the whole show. Elder Johnson3 had a lot to memorize for his debut tonight and he was perfect. Good Job Elder Johnson3.
