I was sitting in Central Park reading the NYT when a missionary couple walked by. He greeted me and wished me a good day. As they passed I thought I needed to talk to them so I called out "are you missionaries at the Temple?" They came back and talked to me and they were Temple missionaries though assigned to a ward in Queens where they teach the youth Sunday School class (they were on their way home from church). They are from Clifton, Idaho (a very VERY small town not far from Logan, UT) and have been in New York City about 9 months. We talked for a few minutes and they went on their way. About 10 minutes later I looked up and they were standing in front of me and he said, "we'd like to share a meal with you; will you join us at our apartment?" I was so touched by their kindness and invitation. It was cool to see one of the apartments right next to the Temple. It was really fun visiting with them. We enjoyed a lovely meal and wonderful conversation and I have some new friends! I hope to see them again in NYC!
I was born and raised in Van Nuys, California. I moved to Boston sight-unseen and have loved living in New England since that day when I said, "this apartment is OLD". My hobbies are antiquing, reading books and magazines (bring back Blueprint and Domino please), sewing, quilting, sightseeing, watching movies, and photography. I love the color red and have a retro red refrigerator (and kitchen aid mixer and ice cream maker and toaster and...) to prove it! I live in a converted high school and love decorating my loft condo (w/ 18 foot ceilings) that was formerly the auditorium. I have 3 brothers, 11 nieces and nephews, and a bus fleet of friends.
