October 31, 2011

Halloween, but the only sign of any celebration here was on Google's banner - a cute video - however, a couple of branch members are in the US Embassy and their kids celebrated.

Elder & Sis Andros had an appointment downtown this morning, so we were left to carry on alone in the office!!  It was good as we quickly learned how much we didn't know!!  That was to be expected though and we have a couple of weeks left with them, so things will get better.

We were invited to Elder and Sis. Dracocardos' (another senior couple) for supper tonight.  He is Greek, but grew up in England from his early childhood and married to an English-born sister.  He is a jokester and a lot of fun to be around.  They served roast chicken with roast potatoes and green beans.  It was a breath of home and super delicious.  Dessert looked like a white cake, but it had lemon poured onto it as soon as it came out of the oven I think as it was VERY moist and scrumptious.  They said it was a Greek recipe and I'll get it from them.  Again, Brent was doing the driving today and being a week day, it was much more challenging - but you'd be proud of him - he did OK!
