Today in El Salvador...

October 15 - Wednesday
The packers came today.
They packed 59 boxes that totaled 1,500 lbs.

Gabriel--far left--came to make sure all went well.  The supervisor on the right did a great job and htese other five worked very efficiently, fast, and carefully packed our items.
They liked their chocolate treat at the was about split between who chose Snickers and who chose M&Ms. 
They were, no doubt, relieved to have all  59 boxes loaded into the truck.
Walt thought they brought a mighty big truck. They probably only used about 1/4 or maybe 1/3 of it.    The movers are coming back Monday to get a couple-three more boxes.  It's a good thing. After they left I found clothes hanging behind the laundry door and behind the bathroom door and behind our bedroom door.

And there goes some of our most precious possessions of our earthly things...
Of course, the most precious things in our life are our children and grandchildren.  But we don't own them, they are on loan to us from Heavenly Father.  However, we will still claim them for this life and for all eternity!
At the gate leaving the temple grounds.
Just as I was warming up the last bit of funeral potatoes (left from the Monday Gringa Brunch), Hna. Majano brought two pupusas apiece for us, saying:
"You must be very tired tonight."
What a kind friend and neighbor. 
(They live in the apartment right next to our.)
I told Walt we'd try a selfie.  He did the growl with the hands curved.  I didn't aim low enough to show his whole hands.
And now it's 9:03 and we're going to bed to get up at 4:15 a.m. for our morning/early afternoon shift at the temple.
So I guess we really are leaving here...I think we're down to 2 weeks and 2 days.
