A bit of "tHiS 'n' ThAt

Saturday we rode the subway down to "Coney Island". Now we can say we went there and ate at the famous Nathan's Hotdog stand. Everyone had somekind of hotdog except us. Just didn't have the stomach for it today. It was a two hour ride down and 2 hour back on the subway.
We walked out on the Pier and had this great shot of the beach.
For $5 Doug got to hold this snake and get his picture taken. He did kiss the snake but the picture was missed. FYI: This is a pregnant bowa constrictor. Supposedly has about 40 little baby snakes inside.
This is the gang, minus me and S/Evans, sorry Janet, got half of ya.
We subwayed down to the temple with the YM in our Inwood ward and did baptisms for the dead. We love the temple. We found out that President and Sister Rogers went home. He was the 1st councilor in the temple presidency.
Transfers! We had 5 new sisters fly in to start their mission. It is quite unusual to have that many sisters at one time. But that also meant that we had 3 head home. Sister Walker in the middle starts her mission just up the street from us. She is in a threesome companionship here in Inwood.
Before Elder Speirs, the tall Elder went home we promised to take him to Doug's favorite place to eat. "Crepes on Columbus". He had been transfered here in the city just about 1/2 mile from the place. Any reason to go there to eat and Doug's all over that. Good luck Elder Speirs, the mission will miss you and so will we.
