Orson and Jeannette Poulsen report their mission experience is a little flat at first due to some sicknesses. But now they are enjoying themselves immensely. They report living in a “controlled whirlwind” with all their many wonderful activities, and becoming acquainted with their schedules. “We are always busy and now getting a good handle on things,” Orson says.
Laura Wheatley and husband Zane planted their garden last week. They put in lots of tomatoes and hope all their seeds sprout. “The disappointing thing,” Laura says, “is that the girls didn’t enjoy it at all.” Laura adds that “maybe next year they will.”
Boyd Udy is loving being busy with just work and things around the ranch.
Kaye Draper’s pain is terrible. She is hoping for some answers soon. She reports having done nothing since the pain first hit last week.
Winnie Richman stayed home Monday and plowed some fields. Red Hight was out working on the Richman’s electricity and wiring. “We are very grateful,” Clynn and Winnie say.
At art Winnie did some more work on her latest canvasses. ‘It is quite an undertaking,” Winnie says, “but I’m thoroughly enjoying myself.” Winnie and Carolyn Carter are looking forward to their granddaughter Marriah Richman and maybe her two brothers joining them for art this summer.
On Thursday Heather and Greg Lott and Lyle Richman came to the Double S Bar Ranch to help load four nice fat steers to take to Palmer Packing for the families’ meat supply. The animals loaded quickly and quietly – almost unheard of! Lyle followed Winnie to town to help unload them.
Clynn celebrated five years to the day Sunday since his stroke. He has aged somewhat since then (haven’t we all?) Winnie enjoyed choir practice and being in the ward library Sunday.
