We went to Kings Variety Store for some part for the sprinkler before we had to take the Buick in to Bonanza for a "General Motors" Recall to reprogram something into the tiny computer inside the key.
We didn't want to sit in there for the hour to hour and a half they told us on the phone it would take, so Walt drove for the first time since his fall on Feb. 19.
He drove the Buick and I drove the pickup. From Bonanza we dashed over to Wal-Mart to look for a three-hole punch and a white board.
As we were checking out, we heard a loud: "Dr. Petersen!" from the checkout stand one over from ours. It was a gal whom Walt had been her doctor for years and her Mom's doctor, who was with her in one of those motorized carts. Walt went right over to talk with her while I paid for our things. I had to remind him to walk over with his walker.
Our daughter Julie declares that whenever she is with her Dad anywhere in the world, someone always comes up and says: "Dr. Petersen, it's so good to see you."
After we looked, Walt thought they might have better white boards at Kings. But they didn't.
At Kings we again saw two friends: Sister Harper, whom we used to work with on the Wednesday evening temple shift. Her son was buying her a beautiful hanging basket of flowers for Mother's Day.
And also Eileen Ramsey was there. I thought I took a photo of Walt talking with her, but sometimes I think I've pushed the button down correctly, but there is no photo on the camera card.
We had a meeting with Tim Preston at 2:00. He has been our financial planner for years. We always appreciate his working with us and the great advice he gives us.
We have been called to teach a Temple Preparation class to a couple who has recently moved into our ward. She has been baptized for almost two years, and he for almost one year. They have three sons, two living.
For our family home evening we read and studied Lesson 1 "The Plan of Salvation." It's always a good review for us to go over the Plan of Salvation.

next Walt didn't work on the fence today.
We went to Book Plaza to get the "Temples" put out by the Church in an Ensign format that has lots of photos of temples from throughout the world. They didn't understand what we wanted.
We did get a great bookmark size explanation of the "Plan of Salvation" that goes along with the first lesson on Temple Preparation.
Here is an excellent of "The Plan of Salvation" I just found on the Sugar Doodle website. Can't remember if it's .com or .net.
The first circle says "Premortal Life." The rest have all the letters showing.
Then we went out to (I didn't work on this each day, so started from scratch tonight... so it's 11:10 p.m. and I'm going to bed. Hope to finish this up tomorrow (hope being a key word).
We pray you have had a restful and peaceful Sabbath Day.
We went to our friends' Nauvoo Mission Report, Gary and Deborah Jones. Share about this on the Sunday day...
