Yeah. I'm feeling that state of uneasy suspense/painful anxiety. I had a phone call this evening from a member of our high council - he's coming to see me tomorrow - at the request of the stake president. Yeah. Tenterhooks.

I always think tenterhook should be "tenderhook". Don't ask why. It just makes more sense that way.

I hope you're not a Cub Scout Day Camp Program Director...

I had a chat with my Stake President yesterday. He said the baby is just fine...
