~Idle Hands Are The Devil's Workshop~
The last few weekends
have been full of activity.
No idle hands here!
Ty, with fellow Scouts and leaders work on his
Eagle Project. They have been painting the rusty
iron fences of the River Oaks Gun Range in preparation
for their opening day. In addition, they are applying
sealant to a couple of their storage sheds.
I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a
catcher's mitt on both hands. You need to
be able to throw something back.
Food. Always a good motivator.
It's easy to make a buck. It's a lot
tougher to make a difference.

of the Range, Duane Young.

We participated in the Statewide day of
"Mormon Helping Hands." Three different
projects took place in Turlock. Our family
helped paint a stenciled message over
already prepared storm drains. Message read:
The Solution = No Pollution
Drains To River
Mother's Day, 2010
Thou art thy mother's glass, and she
in thee calls back the lovely
April of her prime.
Any mother could perform the jobs of several
air traffic controllers with ease.
This is my SONshine. Ty has been taking Spanish
at school. He is constantly whipping off Spanish
phrases and sort of 'speaking in tongues.' It is pretty
funny. He surprised me with this hilarious balloon,
gave me a Spanish Mother's Day card and wrote his
entire message in Spanish. He'll probably be
called to serve his mission in Sweden.
The secret to humor is surprise.
Mother---that was the bank where we deposited
all our hurts and worries. ~DeWitt Talmage~
If I was damned of body and soul, I know
whose prayers would make me whole.
Mother o'mine, O mother o'mine.
It wouldn't be a complete visit from my
mother if she didn't gift me with
roses from her garden.
I often go walking in meadows of clover,
And I gather armfuls of blossoms of blue.
I gather the blossoms the whole meadow over;
Dear mother, all flowers remind me of you.
