A FRIEND I met on Parley's Street! He was a little TOO friendly!
The original restored duplex of Erastus Snow and my great-great grandfather, Nathanial Ashby! The site missionaries live in this home. At the musical the other night there was an entire song about Nathanial Ashby, and all his sons. He was a shoemaker from Mass. who joined the church and moved to Nauvoo with his 11 children and then had one more child in Nauvoo! He died at age 41 in Iowa while they were traveling to Winter Quarters. That last child, a little boy was only 9 months old!
A crane down by the river. There are lots of wild life around...it is really fun .
IT WAS A MEMORABLE AND VERY SPECIAL BIRTHDAY!!!
A special thanks to my family for all the calls, and birthday songs, and wishes. It was wonderful to hear from all of you. We love and miss you so much!
