Car Registration

Car Registration

You could hear the disgust in the clerk’s voice when I told her I did not receive a renewal notice for my car registration.  The disgust was not aimed at me, but Albany, New York.  Fortunately, there are no late fees and penalties.

She said next year it is best  to go to the web site, print the form, fill it out, and mail the check and form to the county DMV in Lyons.  (That way, the money stays in the county.)

My next stop is Real Deals where I found nothing worth buying.

Annual Review

Just as I arrived home my phone rang.  I was literally still in the car.  It was regarding my annual 401K review.

We talked, suggestions for changes were made. I authorized them, and we were done. It is that simple.  As a result, I’m all set until next year.

CSM Photographer Friends

One of our Church Service Missionary Photographer friends stopped to visit and stay the night.  Bruce Cornwall and his wife are traveling through on their way back to Oregon.

Bruce and Me

It was pathetic.  Two professional photographers trying to figure out how to do a selfie.  As I say, “Just say, ‘No’, to selfies.”

Elizabethe and I served our temple shift.  Today was busy.

 

Former Bishop

Former Bishop

It seemed odd having our former bishop talk in our ward today.  You see, about 5 years ago they split our ward and our bishop became bishop in Lyons Ward, but he still lives in Palmyra.  Well, today he talked in our ward, even though he’s in Lyons Ward.

It is still summer and we still have a fair number of visitors in our ward.  We filled the overflow and a little of the cultural hall.

I took a very long nap after church.  Yesterday wore me out.

After dinner (ham hocks and navy beans) we took a walk in the Sacred Grove.  The kids got a kick out of all the tiny frogs that were out there.  (There were a lot this year.)

In the Frame Home

We just made one loop through the grove and then went in to the frame house so the kids could see it.  I pointed out to the kids the box (picture, upper right) that is a replica of the box Alvin made that was used to store the plates.

It was a lovely evening walk and I think the kids had fun.  I know I did.

Plugging Get It Done on 31(tm)

I spent a good portion of the day going around plugging my next book, Get It Done On 31 – A Journey Down New York’s Main Street. I met a lot of interesting people and business owners.
