The news from Orson and Jeannette Poulsen shows they are not only busy, but able to take in the conditions around them. Orson reports the weather is hot and dry. Since the farmers in the Nauvoo area don’t irrigate their corn, it is drying up and dying. So is the usually green grass. Orson says, “If it doesn’t rain, the grass and crops don’t grow.”
Various groups of performers come to Nauvoo during the summers. Their presentations are all well attended. The groups have several different venues where they perform. There is even a troop of professional actors who present the Nauvoo pageant Tuesdays through Saturdays in the evening.
Orson is in his element with wagon rides. Their rides are always full of riders. However, as the summer winds down and the hustle and bustle gets less, the performers leave and the performing missionaries pack up also for the winter. Orson says, “Now we go back to slower pace with a little more free time (so we can take a nap now and then!)”
