Actually, it is not for 1000 days. It is just that 3 years times 365 days plus June 27 through June 30, 2008 equals 1098 days, and that is way too cumbersome to convert into a blog headline. Futhermore, our release date will not be determined until May or June of 2011. Therefore, 1000 Days sounded just about right, more or less. Having noted all that, we are humbled and thrilled (Pres. Uchtdorf would refer to the feeling as "joyfully overwhelmed") about having this marvelous opportunity to serve in La Mision Mexico Veracruz.

Right across the street from the stake center in Teziutlán is a veterinary clinic. It seems like this is really a one-stop shopping kind of a business. The wall across the street behind the bright green taxi advertises vaccinations, surgeries, and births. If that doesn't work read the next panel to the right. "Se disecen animales" means that if all else fails, they will mount your dead pet for you. Yup. The vet clinic is also a taxidermy shop. In front of mom on the street is the skeleton of a small dog. Nice memory of little Bowser, huh? We have seen a few dogs walking around that look a lot like that, if you just added a thin layer of skin. The third picture is a bonus shot of a stuffed parrot. Fine work. The puppies in the cage are alive and are for sale, but who knows? They could end up on somebody's mantle. These are worth the "click" on the pictures to enlarge them.
