Joey has found a hat that actually fits him well. I thought Mimi & Grampa would be proud!

Local church group helps clean up after recent hurricanes
|By: Rhonda Morrow - Texarkana Gazette -||Published: 09/27/2008|
Then there are times when the sound of the chainsaws makes it impossible to be discreet.
Such is the case with members of the local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-
day Saints who went to Baton Rouge to participate in clean-up after the recent hurri-canes.
The group was one of several hundred from the denomination that took their chainsaws, tools and ATVs to help with the cleanup organized by Martin Luther King III, son of legendary civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The younger King is the founder of Realizing the Dream, which spearheaded the cleanup. His vision for the organization is to help fulfill his father’s dream of creating communities where people are united and help each other as they work to eradicate poverty.
Local volunteers helped at the home of Darryl and Monica Chedville, who own the 10-
acre Lucky Plantation. The plantation was home to large pecan and live oak
trees destroyed during the storms.
Initially, the crew was given two work orders for their two-day stint, but by the time their two days were completed, they had actually assisted seven families.
H.L. Platt, leader of the local church, thinks the experience was an example of true religion cited in the Bible at James 1:27.
“I feel like we have participated in what ‘true religion, undefiled’ really is,” he said.
The local Latter-day Saints volunteers are part of a much larger crew working with King’s organization this weekend in Houma, La. King’s request was for 1,000 volunteers—a number Jileen Platt, local spokeswoman, said was exceeded.

When I turned 18, my friend, Kenna, gave me a wallet. It was black and really nice since I had never had a new cool wallet like that before. I think the wallet I had before that was red, and I got it when I was like 11, so it had been a long time. I used that black wallet until 1992 (I think I actually still have it in my cedar chest!). Mom worked at a resale shop ran by the Junior League, and those rich ladies had to donate so many $$$ of clothes a year. Mom would call me whenever someone brought in nice stuff (especially from a few ladies who had sons just a bit older then Josh). The money that was made at the store was then donated to the community. The prices were never high, and quite affordable to a student's family. One day, a lady dropped off some stuff, and in her stuff was a blue Liz Claiborne purse & wallet. I loved that purse until it just gave way years ago, and used that blue wallet until last Saturday. That was 16 yrs! This is my new Liz wallet:
I got it at TJ Max's for $12. I am really excited for it. I love it! The inside is even pink, my favorite color! It has tons of pockets for my credit cards (LOL!), and a place for pictures. It came with a checkbook cover, but I couldn't get it to work with my duplicate checks, so I tossed that.

Because we all know what Bill Clinton was really saying when he said Palin was hot!

Maybe I should do " NOT PD 4" or "U JELUS" or "ALL MINE" or "HEIDI" ?

#1) Remember the fair? Well, you get paid when you a prize! They sent us checks the other day. I thought it was wild. I got $8.00; Lauren got $3; Kayley~ $5; and Jacob made a whopping $2! I'm going to enter more stuff next year! LOL!!
#2) I forgot how good air-popped popcorn is! I haven't seen an air-popper at the store forever, but then again, I haven't been looking. I bet you can find some on eBay! Anyway, yesterday I made some popcorn for Lindsey, Joey & me (as we were going to watch the new Ariel movie for the 100th time!), and I added some melted butter and some salt, and it taste sooooooo much better then the microwave stuff! I remember growing up, and all my parents bought was the popper that you added oil too. I loved that too, but when the air-popper came out, I wanted that so bad! Parents never bought it, but like I said before, I got it when I got married. When I was doing the popcorn yesterday, Lindsey thought it was the coolest thing. She was mad at first because I wasn't putting the popcorn in the microwave, but when she saw the popcorn popping up and out, she loved it! She kept telling me though that it tasted funny. LOL!!
