The Golden Urn Retirement Center

As you may know, since our ward boundaries have recently changed, the Golden Urn Retirement Center is now part of our ward family. Which means we'll be helping them out with their annual yard sale this year.

I know I shouldn't say this, but I'm not really looking forward to it. I've been before to their yard sale before, and it seems like all there is for sale are crutches and glass figurines. A fellow can only buy so many tiny glass elephants. Still, we help. We give. And in the end, the smell will eventually come out of our clothes.

Ha ha. Fantastic.
My friend told me the Bishop was back and said I didn't believe him. Much like Thomas the doubter... forgive me.

I was so sad that I only recently discovered the BH Blog only to find out the Bishop was released! Thanks for your delightful ingeniousness. You're a wonderful man.

Is there any way you can post a link for an RSS feed?

Happy Follower JaredCC

RSS feed. Hum....
Can't you just click on the RSS button in the address bar? So, you know where you type in the blog address, on the far right side of that there should be an icon, yes? If you're using Safari, it actually says RSS instead of the icon.

Honestly, I don't know how to post a link, but if you don't see it in the address bar as I described, I can pray about it or ask my son Nathan how to figure that out. He's very tech savvy. He loves video games and ham radio.

Let me know if you figure it out or not. Right after this week's ward council I'll get to work on that.

BISH! you're back!!

as for the yard sale, you can always regift to that one family in the ward who can't afford clothing and little knickknacks and call it a service thingy. Make it official with some cookies.

The Lord must be telling me this is true, because my captcha word is "aptiest." Apparently my suggestion is rather apt.

Bishop, you're the greatest. I just found this blog on Monday and I think I've read every single post. You are an inspiration to us all.

I had a concern for you though: why do you call the ward dog "Mister" Wiggles? I feel that as part of the ward family, our beloved Wiggles deserves the love and dignity given by the title "Brother". Would it not be more bishop-ly of you to refer to him as "Brother Wiggles"?

I hate old people. Is that a sin? Can I be forgiven even if I never stop hating them?
