Sketchbook: Baby, it's a wide world

As a missionary, I thought I was wise to the ways of the world. I'd been to California! I'd been to Canada! Heck, I'd even driven through Las Vegas!

I had a lot to learn, and a lot to experience. My bubble certainly got bigger!

That’s one way to keep your toes warm!

Settle in for a lesson

We used to visit an elderly widow in our ward. She had a magic chair — whenever I sat in it, I immediately fell asleep.

I miss that chair.

Sketchbook: We're all family

Thinking about this now, I should have set it in the Roots Tech convention. Dang.

Companion inventory

The first few weeks out in the field are often the most difficult. It takes a little while to grow into the calling.

Your religion is showing

Watch — it won't be long before Deseret Book starts selling kits to do this at home!

The writing's on the wall

Cancel culture is nothing new. Ask almost any prophet!* Although in Noah's case, it was kind of a reverse cancel.

*Witness the reaction to the First Presidency's message on COVID-19 vaccinations.

Sketchbook: Or they may become clean

We usually used the Boy Scout three tub method: soapy water, rinse water, hot rinse. Either that our let the house boy take care of it!

Knocking on our door

True Confession No. 1: I had a couple of shirts that I could only wear if I had on either a sweater or a jacket to cover up certain... um... customizations!

True Confession No. 2: We never had the fire department come, but we had a couple of pretty good explosions in our kitchen!

Put a lid on it

For us as missionaries in Korea, we found ourselves studying language — they often had creative English translations on their packaging.

What happens to all those old white shirts when a missionary goes home? Well, the ones they don't burn, anyway...

The eyes have it

It takes a certain skill to be a good minister. And a good set of eyes.

Open lines of communication

When I was a missionary it took days or weeks before my family knew that I had a baptism. Nowadays families can join in on a live stream. That's cool!

The day nor the hour

Not only are the back to school sales well underway, some folks are already headed back to the classroom. It can't be that time yet, can it?

S'mores for everyone!

Teancum gets his fair share of gags, doesn't he? It would be interesting to do a survey to see which Book of Mormon characters show up in comics the most.

Far, far away

For some reason, Pioneer Day reminded me of this old cartoon.

Sketchbook: I think it’s going to be a long, long time

I noticed yesterday how long it took to clear out the church after meetings were over. Yeah, we may still have three hour church.
