Genetic engineering and automobiles

Car with genetic engineering
Do you remember the movie Groundhog day?  It seems a little like that.  We keep leaving and then waking up back in Texas.  Maybe I need to get just one day right to get out of this.  That might be hard for me.

Friday I had a new MRI taken.  The technician asked if I had ever had one before.  I couldn't help it, I  just laughed.  The MRI was normal, a little tube and lots of noise.  As we were leaving the hospital we saw a rather unusual car.  Maybe it's because we are hanging out in the genetic engineering part of the hospital.  I'm wondering if perhaps they got their hands on this car and this was the result.

Yesterday JoLynne and I went to tour the battleship Texas.  I don't know why it seems so appropriate that we should be looking at a battleship.

Bring on the big guns
Today was Sunday and we went to church with our son's best friend Alden.  It was great.  A wonderful young ward.  Full of life and energy.  Alden's son reminds me of our kids.  Really cute and kind of solid.

JoLynne' fancy flowers
Well, we have till Tuesday before we will know the results.  It is hard to wait.  I still feel at peace.  I really have no idea what they will say but I feel in my heart that we are in the right place so it will all turn out somehow.

I picked JoLynne's Valentines flowers today as we were walking down the train tracks.  We're keeping it simple here for the time being.


  1. Thanks for the update! Your photo looks great! We keep praying for you!

  2. We used to take the scouts to camp overnight on the battleship Alabama in Mobile Bay. It was fun but had lots of hard surfaces to bump on. We pray for you every night, Eric. I'm glad you're in a good place.

    1. Yeah, I hit my head several times. It was worth it though. I couldn't believe how one ship could be so bristling with weapons. At one point they had 1800 men living on that ship. I could hardly believe that they could find places for all of them to sleep. It was a lot of fun.

  3. Our boys loved to spend the night and play tag. It was fun but made me glad to be in the Air Force.

  4. I can feel the faith and hope in this post amongst the others. I love you dear Uncle. Keeping you all in my thoughts & prayers. Much love from Salt Lake City!! -Candace & fam
