Well our dear Pres. Freestone and Sis. Freestone flew back to the States this morning early - it is so nice that they will be back at the end of June.
We went to do our weekly grocery shopping at our usual time of 8:00 a.m. when it is fairly quiet - not this morning! Undoubtedly, folk were getting out early to get provisions for New Year's Eve celebrations. It was packed.
Most of those who drive cars in the mission had taken care of their car registration tax which was due today - however two did not, and when it fell on Brent to get it done, he discovered that those people were on strike until Jan. 2nd. One of those cars at least had to be taken off the road and it now sits in jail in the mission office driveway. I don't know how it will all work out because they could be liable for a 100% fine for late payment!!
Brent and I are still trying to get our year/month end completed (we're getting close), but interruptions were many today. Some wan ing to confirm travel and pick-up times - some wanting to know if they had any mail - and one called because she couldn't completely turn off her shower faucet. That one instigated many phone calls - to the landlord - to 2 or 3 plumbers and back to the sister again and round and round it went taking up hours really. Never a dull moment!
