July 23, 2008

Hi Judy! I sent this photo to a friend and she came back with the most clever response; cracked me up! From my friend Elaine: "That sulky guy looks as though he's thinking "Why did I decide to become a polygamist? How did Brigham Young stand it? I should have gone the Catholic way. In fact, celibacy sounds pretty appealing right now, and I'd already be a cardinal."

Have a great day! Dee Burns #6221229
