next I had an appointment with the dentist for my semi-annual cleaning of my teeth.  Then when Dr. Stock checked for cavities: "No cavities." 
I said: "This is a first in my 76 years -- 'No cavities!' "

We packed and got our things loaded into the car. Our good neighbor, Steve Ormond, came over and helped us load.  He is going to bring in the mail and water our flowers while we're gone.
The first daisy of the summer was just blooming today.
We got to Saratoga Springs at 6:00. Gary picked us up at Julie & John's home and took us out to dinner at Porter's Place in Lehi. This is in the
How fun to go to supper with our son Gary.

Walt got halibut, Gary got Bison sirloin steak, and I got a beef sirloin steak.  We enjoyed the food and atmosphere with lots of antiques and paintings of Orrin Porter Rockwell.
Most members of The Church know that Porter was a life guard for Joseph Smith.  He is quoted as saying when he was accused of attempting to shoot Governor Boggs: "It wasn't me, because I wouldn't have missed."

Gary also ordered Iron Port and Sarsaparilla.
"Hmmm, I like it, commented Gary. After the next sip: "Hmmm, I really like it!"

The video that Julie took of me screaming and terrified on the Tidal Wave--which isn't even shown on the website.
Here's a photo of the "wooden roller coaster" built in 1921 (and recently renovated with all-new wooden tracks) that most of us rode on.
