Nothing Scary about our Lawn Toupee -- 10-29-06

This week was a great one. Joseph has university classes on Monday and Tuesday. After class on Tuesday he and Dad went up to Providence City, Utah's City Council Meeting. Joseph is taking an upper level class in managing a small city. For his project he's taking Providence. He enjoyed attended a planning and zoning meeting last month. Tuesday's meeting was an active one and very interesting. Afterwards he interviewed Randy Simmons (see the blog entry "Celebrating Providential Friendship - 8/5/06"), the mayor. Joseph enjoys the high level of discussion in his classes, and holds his own with anyone.
This week the youth and leaders of the Westlake 9th Ward put a horticultural toupee on our bare dirt in the back yard. They brought in sod and did a great job of greening up the landscaping. Later in the week they put more mulch on the flowerbeds. It is so beautiful. How can anyone provide sufficient thanks for such thoughtful service and sacrifice? better goodies for Halloween? . . . The feeling around here is Thanksgiving even if it is October.
