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.

This is our Thanksgiving turkey. Elder Watkins did not execute it. We bought frozen from Costco. Mom noticed the labeling and we had a laugh. It advertises that this turkey is double-breasted. We have not noticed too many single-breasted ones.

This was the result. We invited the office elders to dinner, on Mom's Spode, along with Hermana Queta who has worked in the mission offices for years doing laundry and cooking for the missionaries. Hermana Marquez, who helps at the mission home, and her husband also came. It is funny to watch Mexicans try to figure out what to do with gravy. Some love it, and others really don't. Not hot enough, I guess.
