This coming Saturday we will get 2 new couples to work in the temple. The Roberts and the Haydens. I don't know alot about them but we are going to mentor the Roberts. Basically show them how the temple works here in Santiago, help them with language questions, shopping, buses, mission rules(aren't very many really) and anything else they might wonder about. I have also been asked by President Otay to be the one he will communicate with to give information to the couples and give out the schedule. Elder Rick Lee and his wife Stephanie have been doing it but they go home September 24th after their 12 month mission is done.
We had a depedida for Elder and Sister Dalton. They are going to Buenos Aires as the Chile area and Buenos Aires area have been combined. They will be missed. They are the executive secretaries to the Area presidency.

In honor of my good friends and current Cuna Mutual employees, I was able to take a photo of a biker on the street Irrazaval down from our fuente Suiza. They are on their bike ride to Sturgis, South Dakota on their Harley's. Of course my big brother wouldn't approve of the Harley's but would of the bike ride. I think his ride of choice was a Ducati(sp).

I also needed to add a note to my blog this week. Harold Clayton father to my best friend Tom Clayton passed away this week. He was 92. He had an interesting life as a husband, father, farmer, politician. But I remember him best as my best friends father who allowed me to be in their home any time as a teenager. I enjoyed his home on many occasions and always liked it when we got to ride in their cadillac or continental. One vivid memory was on Christmas day I had gone to the movies in Yakima with them to see McClintock with John Wayne. Coming back a car that was a more modern car for a younger driver came along side of him and gunned his motor. He took off but to his suprise so did this cadillac. Ray, Tom and I are were all in the back seat secretly saying go get him Harold!! Much to our amazement he did just that. When he hit a 100MPH, Lois esclaimed Harold, Harold!! He finally slowed down after he proved his point. He will missed by his extensive posterity and by one 14 year old boy who felt at home out on the Goldendale highway.
