Letter From Kelson - Week # 61 - I bet you can't guess how this story ends?

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!!
Howdy, Ya'll ...whats cookin', good lookin'? what's achin' Bacon? Please answer these questions and then send the answers to my mother.  The most frequent answer will be applied to the next e-mail giving you the opportunity to be right here in the action with everyone's Hero.... CAPTAIN INJURY!!!!
I have a story and it will come out as my fingers type. I want you to sit back, read, and allow your imagination to wander as I tell you the tale of the "Well Timed Flight to Success!"
It was a blustery day, just like any usual day. The sun was shining, there was maybe a hint of humidity, and the air smelled of crisp french fries right after they are cooked. The country road was winding and rough. As he glided across the asphalt  he felt every care in the world wash out of his mind and just peace and tranquility replace the emptiness inside. Suddenly there was a thought that opened his understanding to new feats accomp…

Kelson's Watermelon Pics and Videos

Here are the pictures and videos Kelson references in his last letter (Week #60)

Not sure what this picture is from, but it's typical Kelson

The second video Kelson sent me is too big to upload.  It's over 140 MB and Google has a 100 MB limit for videos on this blog.  :-(  Once I find a way to convert it from MOV to MP4 so the file size will go down, or edit it so that it isn't as big, I'll upload it.  Until, you'll just have to rely on the pictures above for an idea of how much Kelson LOVED eating that watermelon.  

Letter From Kelson - Week #60 - I LOVE WATERMELON!!!

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!
It is a wonderfully hot day today, and I must say that it would go extraordinarily well if I had a big chunk of watermelon to devour...Hum, sounds like a genius Idea, I'll be back...
20 min later...
...Ok I am back, It was delicious, I will send my mom a video and some pictures after this e-mail, hopefully, I will work my magic fingers into a figure 8 knots so that I can send these pictures and video, it was just so good!!! I am sending them now, I hope she gets them to you, because you will be able to enjoy it just as much as I did.
This past week was super productive, we had a team-up with the Assistants to the President (pretty good missionaries) and they took Elder Badger out and showed him a thing or two about missionary work. I think they may have shown him about 4 or 5 because I might have taught him some false doctrine...I don't remember every word that comes out of my mouth, just the looks of other people. As we went on the team …

Letter From Kelson - Week #59 - Drama Drama Drama, When did I go into acting?

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!!!
It is a wonderful 80 degrees here with a gentle cool breeze from the west...It is awesome, at least now. This past week it hit 105 and Elder Badger and I felt every degree.  I mean we were sweating like nobody's business. I may need to invent a bicycle with an AC unit, or maybe pray super hard for global cooling so that it is a cool summer with temperatures in the 80's all the time. I think my bicycle is suffering more than me though, because there are times that it just sits in the sun while I am knocking on doors, and there is no relief. I plead with you to pray for cooler weather so that my bike won't suffer a painfully hot death. Please pray for him
This week's episode has a lot of funny stuff that goes with it, however, there are many things that will be disclosed when there is no longer a tag on my chest.  Not because it is bad about the area and what not, but it would take forever to put it into words on paper; I just need…

Letter From Kelson - Week #58 - I sent it again!!! oh well I guess that's what happens

Mom's Note:  I'm sorry this is a week late.  I've been on vacation and I kept forgetting to send this out.    Dad kept hounding me, though, so here it is...

Good Morning From Sunny California!!!!
Why, hello there, I almost missed you behind the shadow of my overly sized head. Actually it is the shadow of my overly sized belly from all this really good food, but you know sometimes I think with my stomach so it works out in the end.  This past week was awesome, we had lots of time to spend out on the streets of Stockton, helping people sharing the Gospel and showing people who really is Boss...Well, God of course is the boss.
As we talked to these people we had much success in the way of finding new people to teach, and then they had much success in not showing up for our return appointments. All in all we all were successful in being successful. Sounds like a great week right?!?! Well it was because we had many opportunities to teach lessons, give out copies of the Book of M…
