This morning, Elder Gowans took the car in for an oil change; the mechanic found that the belts were cracking, so he decided to not only change them out, but also change out the timing belt, too. In the long run it will save money and it was due to be changed out in 5,000 miles. As a result, we now have all new belts, an oil change and the tires rotated. We think we will be good to go for another 5,000 miles.
We visited with Aubry Lonsberry this evening. She is a new permanent party army linguist; we had a great visit with her and look forward to getting to know her better in the future. Tomorrow she leaves to visit her mother for Christmas. We wish her all the best.
