You would think that after living here for 30 years that I would get used to these late spring storms that dump anywhere from 6-24 inches of snow. NO WAY!!! They always take me by surprise and I always cuss and curse them. Just when you start thinking about planting a garden, getting your flower beds ready, and wearing flip-flops, Mother Nature gives you a swift poke in the eye. Not so fast she says, I'm not done yet. Oh well-one of the good things about these storms is that it always melts pretty fast and we can get back to thinking about Spring!!

Now that Terry and I are getting older, it is hard to come up with great presents for each other for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, etc.. So this year we decided to give ourselves tickets to see "The Phantom of the Opera" at the Denver Center Theater. We went with some terriffic friends from our branch, Nathan and Tyanya and their kids. We had a terriffic time! Of course, we love the Phantom and have seen the play three times already, but when that chandelier pops and begins to move up to the ceiling, it gives me a chill! We are already planning our next theater experience-"Wicked" come in November!!!!

After months of searching, the production team on the next "Twilight" series movie has announced that Dakota Fanning will play the part of Jane in "New Moon". However. it has been rumored that this fair-faced beauty was under serious consideration for the part. It's just too bad they didn't look in Pinedale, WY!!!

This past week our little branch has lost one of it's founders, Marie Mellott. When we moved to Del Norte 30 years ago, there was 1 active family and 1 active sister, Sister Mellott. She has been a steadfast member of the Church for over 50 years and a rock in our Branch. She was 89 years old. In Relief Society on Sunday, our RS Pres was talking about Marie and said that the torch was being passed to of all people, me. I don't consider myself anywhere near being the kind of person that can sustain a branch or ward. I guess that sometimes these jobs are given to us by default. There are lots of people in my life that I consider to be like Marie. I hope that I can be like them one day.
