Funny Surprise

A week or so ago I went to my local research hangout – the Family History Library at BYU.  I spent some quality time with the microfilm and tried to remember to watch the clock so I wouldn’t be late to pick up my sweet little preschooler.

The entire time I was researching there was this continual cacophony of coughing, sneezing, clearing of throats etc.  Basically I was sitting in a germ-fest.  I’m not a germaphobe by nature but this is the first winter in years that I haven’t had a cold.  (Thank you horribly brutal sinus surgery!)  I really didn’t want to leave my favorite research place and get sick.

So I stopped at the main desk on my way out and used a little hand sanitizer.  The bottle squirted out WAY too much so I was standing there rubbing my hands together for a very long time.  During all the sanitizing I looked at the various papers advertising things.

What do you know?!  I saw my own name on their counter.  I was so surprised.  I’m just glad I didn’t make some sort of loud noise.  🙂

That green flyer there is advertising a local family history fair held in my little town.  I am teaching two classes.  Such a fun surprise to see the flyer at BYU.  We do host an awfully good fair.

If you are a local (to me that is), please join us this Saturday, February 27th at 9 am.  You won’t be sorry.  All the FamilySearch bigwig engineers live in my town and they teach classes.  You get to find out all this cool stuff that is coming soon.  It’s pretty awesome.  I hope you’ll join us.
