Old Friends are the Best!

We had such an enjoyable day this week.  Our dear friends, Gail and Linda Goodman, were visiting a daughter and found time to met us in Manhattan.  It was one of the coldest days so far this year and very windy (as you can see from the picture).  We were anxious to catch up on Payson happenings and mission updates.  They just received another mission call to Hawaii Visitor Center and will report in July.  They certainly deserve such a wonderful calling as they have served one 18 month mission plus four 3 month dental missions.  So we get home and then they leave.  They are our card playing friends so maybe we can get a couple of games in before they leave.

Their daughter and two grandchildren joined us at the Stardust Cafe for lunch.  If you are not familiar with the cafe, the wait staff sing and perform the whole time you are there.  It was very noisy!  So noisy that we had to yell just to hear each other.  I told their daughter that when she serves dinner tonight to her children, she can't get angry with them for jumping up on the table and belting out a song. It was her idea to go the cafe.  Both of the kids looked comatose, simply overwhelmed by the noise and activity.
