News from Olney

That's our new city- Olney. We've been pronouncing it like the word Only. But yesterday from the pulpit in sacrament meeting it was pronounced "All-knee" So since we are good LDS people and it was said this way from the pulpit we must correct our ways. We are finally all moved in although there are still some issues with things that need to go on the walls (anchors being needed to hang the tricky stuff, and my indecision on the rest). The piano came yesterday (we didn't trust the army to move it). It felt good to have it delivered in one piece. He even gave a tutorial on how to fix a spot that was damaged by the dog flinging her hard bone at it just before the move. He kept going on about how well the thing was built. He has been moving pianos for over 10 years and has never seen a black upright yamaha that was so well put together. That comment made Troy tremble with joy. That man likes good quality.

One interesting opener to the neighborhood was a man in a tank came over to say hello with his active 6 year old girl who he mentioned several times loved play-dates. After chatting for a while and getting all the details on us, the light dimming, he left. We looked down to see that his large lab left a very large poop on our driveway (which he didn't see apparently because he left it there), but he did make sure to get our phone number so that his daughter could come over to be watched by me. Oh I mean have a 'play date'


So as not to end on a negative note, I will say that overall the neighbors are great, the house is nice and we like the ward. We are two weeks away from school starting so that will be our next big hurtle! We have been blessed!!!
