 I received this from a friend, very sad :(

Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Dough Boy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeatedly being poked in the belly. He was 71.

Dough Boy was buried in a... lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.

Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Dough Boy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Born and bread in Minnesota, Dough Boy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.

Dough Boy is survived by his wife Play Dough, three children: John Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.

The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

If this made you smile for even a brief second, please rise to the occasion and take time to pass it on and share that smile with someone else that may be having a crumby day and kneads a lift.

Last Wednesday night I went to a candy making class for Relief Society, right in the middle of  getting the directions, I got a call and didn't recognize the number so I put it on ignore. Well, after we were dismissed to go to the kitchen, I called the number back and it was President Jensen of the Stake Presidency!!!! He wanted Dave's number so I gave it to him and waited patiently (NOT) to call Dave and see what was up. Dave said that he wanted to meet with us the following afternoon. Do you know the anxiety that in tells? I was a nervous wreck, we thought that maybe he would be getting released after 3 years of being the 2nd Councilor in the Bishopric. Thursday afternoon finally came, Pres. Jensen talked to us for a while and could see that I was so nervous, so finally he said that they wanted to release Dave from 2nd Councilor and put him in as 1st Councilor. We are so excited that he was not released yet. Since he was put in, we have felt the prayers in his behalf, and this calling has brought so many blessings to our family. We will do what ever the Lord wants us to do, and this is where Dave needs to be. We will miss  Dave Sargent in the Bishopric, but know he is where he needs to be too! Craig Brady has taken Dave's place as 2nd Councilor. He is a great person, and has an awesome family.
Dad and Mom came on Sunday to see this all take place. Dad was able to stand in the circle when Dave was set a part for this calling. There was such an awesome Spirit in the room. I love being a member of this Church, the Lord truly is in charge of all things!!!!
I'm a "widow" for 6 days while Dave is in the Valley for some training related to the certification that he just got. He called and said it is quite an eye opening experience. He is a really fast learner so I know he will do great and will learn a lot from this training!! Love ya Babe. so proud of you:)

There really hasn't been a lot going on in our family. So I will try to catch you all up on the past month.
Hunter began having really bad headaches about 2 weeks ago. They started after he had fallen off the bunk bed, I didn't think he hit that hard because they don't have a floor, they have clothes piled about 2 feet deep. So how could he get a concussion? Well he did, Dave took him to the doctor and they did a CT Scan. A few hours later the doctor called and said that there was a spot on his frontal lobe and they wanted to him to get an MRI stat! Dave rushed him to the lab and they did the MRI but it didn't show anything.. What a relief!!!!!!! He is still having headaches but I think they are subsiding.
I have had the dang coughing junk but it hasn't been the gross stuff. So I can live with that. The kids are pretty healthy, Clay does have the stomach bug today.
Dave and I went to the Valley February 5 so that he could take a huge test for work.This is the test that he has tried to pass several times. However he took a different one that in the long run will be better. He PASSED it!!!! He is now a Certified Transmission Operator!! He studied so hard with his friend Jimmy, and as a present for passing, Jimmy and his wife, Linda, took us to the Out Back Steakhouse. YUMMY:)  He and Jimmy are now certified and they will be going to different trainings throughout the year. His other co-workers haven't passed theirs yet. Hopefully a raise will be coming too?!?!?!
Summer is getting bigger with her pregnancy, I never showed until the 7th month, but she has been showing for about 2 months now. She is due June 3, we can't wait.The ultra-sounds show he is growing and doing really well. The doctor can't find one of his kidneys, which is scary, but  I have a friend who was born with only one, and he went on to try out for a professional football team. He didn't make it because they couldn't insure him. But he has led a full active life, and  this little guy will too:)
Hope you have a great day!!!!
