Funny, small-town Utah

Post by Holy Cow » 12 Feb 2015, 14:04

My parents live in a very small town in Utah, and they shared the attached picture with me from their local newspaper.

Only in small-town Utah!! It made me wonder if anybody else has had any experiences recently that are so unique to being Mormon that you couldn't help laughing about it. :lol:

lol

Also, tapes?
ATTENTION: Whoever stole the Book of Mormon tapes out of the white Dodge car, good luck finding something to play them on!

(I still have a cassette player in my car).

Tapes? Do people still have tape players in cars? My car that I have had for about 5 years has a 6 - CD player that I have never used. I just use my Bluetooth to listen to any music outside the radio.

Our grandkids will laugh at CD's before too long!

I saw a sign on I-15 near Provo advertising for a lawyers firm:
"We are here because your Home Teachers shouldn't be giving legal advice."
I see through my glass, darkly - as I play my saxophone in harmony with the other instruments in God's orchestra. (h/t Elder Joseph Wirthlin)

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.

That's worth posting on the refrigerator :clap: .
"I stayed because it was God and Jesus Christ that I wanted to follow and be like, not individual human beings." Chieko Okazaki Dialogue interview

"I am coming to envision a new persona for the Church as humble followers of Jesus Christ....Joseph and his early followers came forth with lots of triumphalist rhetoric, but I think we need a new voice, one of humility, friendship and service. We should teach people to believe in God because it will soften their hearts and make them more willing to serve." - Richard Bushman

Somewhere in storage I have a car 8-track player. Next time I have a car with a hole in the dash big enough, I'm going to dig it out and install it.

I did have a 5.25" floppy drive with a USB adapter at one point, too. Kept meaning to re-rig that adapter to the 8" floppy drive I used as a doorstop in the shop.

I guess Mormons are inspired when we pass out a free copy of the scriptures to someone who will read it and possibly convert and change their lives...and all the scriptures are free now in the LDS app, complete with ability to play the scriptures on any device.

BUT DON'T FREAKIN' TOUCH MY TAPES! :wtf:

I heard the matter was resolved when the tapes were returned to the same owner's car, with a plate of lemon bars, and a note that said: "I followed Moroni 10:3-5 and prayed if these were true...my answer was to return the tapes and get the CD version. These tapes are not true. Enjoy the Lemon Bars."

The police closed the case.
