Life's Moving Along Quickly

Just returned from a trip to visit family in Northern Utah and attend a Poetry leadership meeting plus attend an Icelandic Genealogy conference. A whirl of activity-enjoyable but exhausting. Think I may have to slow down a little now that I'm 75! Lots of memories from BYU starting 55 years ago!

that's the Y on the mountain, still there in 1960 when  i came to school
Map of farms in Iceland where many converts lived
Sunna in Icelandic costumes, she leads a genealogical company.
Entertainment by descendents of Icelanders who immigrated.
BYU folk dancers entertained us, I danced once in this group.
Loved the Irish dancers
Hungarian men's dance was vigorous and entertaining
Scandinavians dancers were more subdued.
Loved their costumes and the famous folk dancer smiles!
A wild finish with an Indian Ballywood production-wild!

Scandinavians are more subdued, ya sure!
