Hot Days

We got a new camera and have been taking some great pictures. The turtle that you see was in the middle of Highway 96 and in danger of being smashed. I stopped and put him/her on the side of the road. The geese were coming across highway 96 and this car had to stop for them.
It has been really hot and humid the last 2 weeks. I have been working in on the weed crew for a couple of months now. It is amazing to see how much work it is to keep Nauvoo beautiful. It is a very important job. Without the grounds crew, the spirit in Nauvoo would not be here. We just got through helping the horticulturalist plant flowers all over Nauvoo. It is quite a job. Last week I got some heat exhaustion working in the high humidity and I had to quit working. We now begin work at 6 A.M. and we are able to quit at noon. It has been so hot and humid here that the horses that pull the wagons for the Wagon Tour have had to quit early. It is so hard on the horses. It was amazing. We are well and happy.
