We have heard from several people that, according to letters home and blogs, it looks like some Senior Missionary Couples spend most of their time playing. We don't. It's just that we can't post pictures or talk about what we do MOST of the time, but can share details of what we do on our time off! This week has been really busy - Craig worked in the temple 8-9 hours most days, sometimes with no break to eat or put his feet up. (There are more female workers, so I generally have only 7-hour days.) Usually on our days off (Sunday and Monday) we catch up on sleep, communications, cleaning, and shopping (which means long walks). But last weekend we took a little trip to York with another couple from the US. While we did not see the Noble Duke, we had a great time.

(Used to be messy street with butcher shops - where the expression "shambles" comes from)

through the 13th century, this wall still goes around most of the city.
