I don't think that families like their realize quite how much they mean to Debbie and I. We just showed up in their midst less than four years ago, two weird, non-Mormon people from a place (California) most people here see (accurately, I have to say) as a den of iniquity and progressive stupidity. Instead of burying us on the back 40 (as any sensible community would have done), they welcomed us and made us part of their community. The same thing is happening with my brother Scott, 20 miles away in Newton, with an entirely different but equally welcoming community.
We love this place!
