Canaltown Days were going on today, but I don’t participate in those activities on Sundays. So, on the way home from church, they had Stafford road blocked off. We drove a block over, and came down to Main Street, and it was blocked off too.
Now, keep in mind that the parade was yesterday.
We asked the office if we could get through since we only lived a block down the road. Instead, he wanted us to go east and come on to main heading the other direction.
We did as directed, only to find they were not using that section of Main Street for anything. Very strange.
Chris Lauren and I did some of our home teaching today. (In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, families are visited each month by two priesthood holders. The purpose of the visit is to check on the welfare of the family and to instruct them.) We have 3 families – the Green’s, the Scott’s and the Nichols’. We visited the Green’s and the Scott’s.
Being new to these families, we spent the time getting to know them. The Green’s are both from this area. Bro. Scott is from Southern California, and his wife is from the Buffalo Area. Both families are delightful and it is going to be fun home teaching them.
At church I was sustained as the ward organist. This is in addition to being the Primary Pianist. There is nothing like using the tallents God has given you. It is rewarding and fulfilling. I just hope I don’t fat-finger too many notes when I play.
