We served at the Sylvester Stoddard Tin Shop the other day.
Mr. Stoddard was a member of the Nauvoo Tinners' Association who made the 1846 angel weather vane that sat on top of the original Nauvoo Temple.
Today many of the LDS temples have Angel Moroni on top of the temple except that he is standing up straight and not a weather vane.
Only one more week of pageant. Can you believe how fast the summer is going?
We had the missionaries that we were stationed with in Carthage last summer spend the weekend with us. They went home in the fall of 2014. It was terrific to catch up with their lives and reminisce about old days.
Originally, we thought we might have as many as 6 guests. We started with six and then Sunday morning awoke to three more. Actually, we love it---crazy like our own home, but lots of fun.
Some of our Carthage friends will finish their 18 month mission this fall the same time we finish so the picture below includes the visitors as well as those currently serving in Nauvoo. What a fun reunion.
As I said, "wall to wall beds"
Do you see even one tomato? Some animal swiped the one single fruit we had ripening for our BLT.
