2/28/2011 the Tall and Short of it......

Hi there family and friends!!
The first day I have used a short sleeve shirt is today.  The weather is crazy out here!!!!!!!!!.  It went from freezing to hot then from snow to warm rain and today it is 81 and tomorrow it is 53.  there is no telling what your going to get when you walk outside.  I went from a huge jacket yesterday to a short sleeve shirt today!
Last week it was warmer in VA than it was in AZ- go figure that one out!
Mom--Our apartment is clean.... well as clean as it can be.  the Deep Creek apartment is the 2nd oldest in the mission... let's just say it is a little run down.  The carpet... well it used to be white at one point now it is more of a tan with black and brown spots ranging from all sizes and shaptes.  The "best" part is the up stairs. EVERY step on the stairs creeks.  And everywhere you walk on the 2nd floor it squeaks or creeks.....
(yes I did mention to Elder Rogers to be sure to keep his room clean... 
does a Mom ever stop asking for that??) 
FYI-So I got to the apartment my first week and sat in my study chair 2 times.  The 3rd time I sat in it, it broke into 3 pieces.  Now this wasn't just an old wooden chair.  It was a nice folding chair that was padded.  I was later informed that the Elder that was here before me leaned back in his chair all the time, so the past month I've been sitting on an old raggedy coffee table to study!  its way low.... are you getting the picture?
(Okay Okay, another mom thing... 
I have asked several times about his apartment so I am finally getting some feedback!  
I think I got the picture....
good thing Elder Rogers knows how to improvise.... HA!)
Elder Rogers has a new companion. 
Elder Beus from Boise Idaho--(nearby town called Kuna). 
Koltn says:
He is 6 foot 8...... ye that's right 6 foot 8!!!!
It is crazy
I feel like a midget, but he is super cool!
We get along great and getting better and better at teaching together.  He likes the same football teams as me and has a lot of the same interests. He is from Boise Idaho.
(well a close by there is a town called Kuna)
He grew up on a farm and raises dairy cows.
He was a basketball player.... well of course he was!
Koltn also say:
So the "Experience of the Week"
Elder Beus is so tall that he has a special bike.
He calls it the Clydesdale.
Well his back tire was waaaaayyy bent up so it was hard to ride.  So the wind was blowing like 37 mph that day.  It made bike riding so miserable....  We were like 15 min away from the apartment and all of a sudden one of his spokes on the wheel poked through and popped his tire!  It sounded like a gunshot and we were in a ghetto part of the area so I got scared that my comp just got shot!  I turned around and he was smiling and said, oh well...... So we started the walk back and I told him that we were going to have to put the "old Clydesdale" down because it has lame leg!
So we have been hoofing it (no pun intended) since Friday morning and it really has narrowed our tracting down.  But we are still doing lots of work here in "Elder Rogers Neighborhood". 
It's good to hear Elder Rogers hasn't lost his sense of humor.  
Sorry for the generic pictures.  It would be nice to get a few pictures from mission land, but alas.... none have arrived!  All the images I have are the ones I make up in my own head! 
Elder Rogers Says:  Love to all Y'all from down here in Dixieland.
Miss Y'all too!  
I wear the suit, the book is blue, and the church IS TRUE!
