We were invited to Jesper Paulsen's birthday dinner tonight: good company and good food. Jesper has just been hired as the full-time recorder for the temple. Until now a member of the temple presidency has been doing the job. It will be a great blessing to have a full-time recorder to carry the temporal part of the works. Jesper is the perfect recorder personality: kind, congenial, capable, helpful and a good leader and organizer.
We also "attended" the birthday party of our back window neighbor. It was almost an all night
occasion. Here is a recording (note the time) from our bedroom. At least they had changed to more mellow music.
