Oh look, Chicken Thursday - and Happy 4th of July to all American Cybersaltines!
For some time now I have been wanting to visit "Big Lonely Doug," a 230 foot Douglas Fir tree left standing in a clear cut of trees. Doug is in the middle of nowhere, but I finally made it out to visit Doug with my friends Juan and Joyce Ruiz who came over from Port Angeles, Washington, for some adventure. As you can see form the two pictures below, Doug was really lonely and happy we visited.

Within a year, our Young Couples Department at church had grown from one class of eight active couples to four classes with 56 active couples!
On Baby Dedication Sunday that year, we had 19 babies!
Our Pastor was so excited. He stood in the pulpit that Sunday with 19 babies and their parents facing him. He wanted to brag on these couples and the great job that they had done growing this Young Couples Department. However, here's what he actually said: "Just look at ALL these babies! Folks, this just goes to show what our young couples have been doing!!!"
The laughter started and continued for several minutes. Every time the pastor tried to say something, the laughter would begin again. Finally, the red-faced pastor added, "For which we are grateful."
