What a day! Ran into an accident on the way to work this morning. Actually I saw it ... didn't run into it. But I tried two different ways to get to work, which failed.

Then I had to take off to sing at a funeral. One of our neighbors in our old ward passed away. The funeral was kind of sad. Not a lot of support from the ward or neighbors and not a very big family. The talks were short and the funeral was over within 45 minutes.

Got to give Cliff Ellsworth a big hug and a kiss. He's lonely and wishes that he could pass on. Starling Loch and Frank Newton spoke and I sang two numbers. Ruth H. played for me. She's getting better. We are asked to sing the same two numbers everytime someone from the 9th ward dies, so she makes less mistakes each time we have to perform!

I totally biffed it while walking to the church. I didn't step up far enough to get onto the sidewalk and fell all spread-eagled in my dress and pretty, sparkly shoes. I laid there for a second and looked around to make sure no one saw me fall. I was in luck! No one was out in that back parking lot and I was able to save my dignity. My wrist and rib cage is a little sore this evening. Thank goodness for padding. That's the only advantage to my fatness!

Sent off my old camera to Nat on the way back to work. Nat hope that you enjoy it as much as I have. It's still a good camera.

Ran to Hobby Lobby to pick up supplies for a stencil video shoot that I'm doing in a week. Our stencils are really pretty and it will be a great addition to our home decor line.

Am tired --- going to bed!

Going to bed at 7:30? Yeah, you're old. Yeah, you THINK you biffed it stealth-style. Just wait till your move pops up on youtube via cell-phone video.

Who died?

Yah, who died?
I wish that I could have seen your fall, at least now that I know that you're okay. I still vividly remember you falling on that old yellow lawn chair when you were pregnant. I also remember when you tipped over playing nintendo. That one was REALLY funny!

Paul Buckner in the 9th Ward. They lived on Ellsworth's street.
