Thursday, July 10 2008 & today's question

We were quite busy yesterday. Pretty much straight through from 7:30 am until 10:30 pm! But the pageant is progressing very well! Tonight we have our dress rehearsal and tomorrow the show starts.

The cast is full of wonderful people! I have mused that this might be just a tiny climpse of what the millenium will be like. Righteous people working very hard, together and in harmony for a righteous purpose.

I have been volunteered -- army style -- for an unexpected role. I now have a costume and will be teaching the Highland Fling to the Blue Cast family support crew AND to the visitors during the preshow!! I am experiencing no small amount of anxiety here!! It comes from having a sister-in-law heading our team who has more confidence in me than I do!

Today's question: The baptismal font in the basement of the Nauvoo Temple is not set on the floor. It is held about five feet off the floor by sitting on what?

I think the original oxen were made of wood. In fact Lorie's 4th great grandfather helped carve them.
