Those Gas Stations from the past:
Late 20s early 30s Salt Lake City Service station.
Report for Monday Our last full day in Utah:
Our Grandson Corey lives in Portland. He has children here in the area but we have not had a chance to see them all. With the Covid 19, unless told & Invited, we are not sure who will want in person visits . We were blessed to see one of the sweethearts, Allura Lynn, the youngest here. She was visiting Elsie Mae with her mom’s permission.
Allura is a beautiful young girl with a sweet mom. WE haven’t seen her since she was a baby! Big change, ;-)
We are seeing masks here, but mostly around eating establishments and grocery stores. WE are seldom if ever in a ‘CROWD’ and always wear masks when that happens.
I am not a firm believer in masks, but will fall on the safe side. When you are a lip reader it is impossible to understand a clerk (You don’t know if they are asking do you need a bag for one item or show me your ID). It makes me feel very uncomfortable. Very seldom are words ‘life or death’ but can easily be, i.e. “NO and GO!” when driving or walking in/near auto traffic. It puts me back to the level that I once was, when the Dr. said something to me; I misunderstood and dropped my pants. Sherry was with me and interpreted, “He said he would be right back, not drop your pants.”
While I am at it, I will gripe about one more thing. I CANNOT understand the reasoning of a reporter on TV giving a report with a mask on. I seldom see news except on the internet, but it is useless to folks hard of hearing and closed caption has been a joke with the muffled voices. Ok, that is my gripe for today. LOL
Most of the above was in defense of we hearing impaired.
Ending today with another shot from the past. WE brought the whole family out a few years back. Corey, Ben or Carol was taking us back to Salt Lake City the long way:
some pictures from that visit:
Jack Jr and all his sons in 2008 under a plane at the USAF Museum in Utah.
Our friend Rick was a photographer. I thought of this picture when I read in his blog as he was trying to get a family together for a picture."I know this shot maybe a pain, but you will thank me later," said Rick.
Since we did not go downtown Salt Lake City, I wanted to add pictures we took before. The crew also got to hear the Mormon Tabernacle Choir live last time.
First the impressive Mormon Temple:
There are 134 Temples worldwide most have the Angel Moroni blowing a trumpet on top.
Matthew at the Temple doors.
Next leg, thru Idaho to Ontario, Oregon.
