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.

We really like Elder Checketts. He came to the mission from Hyrum, Utah. He thinks he is not a BYU fan, but a fan of the other school just to the north. He is a bit confused, but is maleable. Our daughter, Jane, sent us a great Christmas package which included BYU Cougar license plates. Elder Checketts is in charge of materials which includes the two mission vehicles and, obviously, their license plate holders. So, here he is removing the apparatus from the mission president's van and putting on a true license plate holder.

We are all happier now.
