Left ankle twist

So my samba classics perished. They took my ankle with them.  Finally as my health and physical integrity has fallen, I have given way to purchase another pair of shoes.  
Now, I love my addidas shoes, especially the leather, but the soles do not withstand the test of time. They have hardened, Cracked and have become slick. Last week, As I was our on the wood pitch, there was a slick spot on the floor (some sweaty body made its mark undoubtedly).  When my traction-less and actually quite slick shoes made contact. My very tough and rare-to-roll ankles took the formidable roll and a ligament went "pop!".  
The new kicks... My wife purchased them for me. Yeah, she's awesome... Or, she's just trying to encourage my disability. Look at the difference in soles. New vs. 10 year old shoes.

The Subway at Zion's national park

Wet suit time 
Starting into the main corridor of the next subway picture
Slipped three times to get this photo
The "subway"
The cascade falls... I slid down (on purpose )
These may have been the cascading falls 
Dinosaur prints
Saw a couple if these critters along the way.

Our democracy...

Alexander Fraser Tytler – (1747 – 1813) – Professor of Universal History, and Greek and Roman Antiquities – University of Edinburgh
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage”.

Being thankful...more than words

It is amazing how thankless people are after their needs go filled.  I am one of them.  I'm not sure if it's just a selfish thing, or it's the way our culture has shaped us.  It has been interesting to me that when I take care of people in the church.  There are many thankless and thankful.

Tonight I had a very thankful member of the church bring by a rotisserie chicken and Sprecher root beer with a piece of chocolate cake.

My desire to help people again is once again renewed.

Good movies

Why do lds people suggest "great family movies" as those with at least 10 strong swear words? Yeah, "We bought a zoo" was a great movie, but wow! Language people! Why oh why!?
