We are pleased to welcome two new permabloggers to our ranks: Alison Moore Smith and Rory Swensen. Both have recently guest blogged here, so I won’t repeat bio information from earlier welcome posts (see here and here for a refresher). We look forward to their continuing contributions here at T&S.

    Anyone whose name is pronounced “Swenson” (the correct Swedish spelling) can’t be all bad.

    Thank you all very much.

    Years ago, an old high school friend visited our ward. I conducted the RS meeting that day. Afterward she came up to me and said, “So, you’re in the presidency? What’s your calling?” When I told her I was the RS president she said, “Wow, they must be hard up.”

    So, I have to admit that when Dave contacted me last week about joining, my first thought was, “Um, why?”

    But I decided not to think about how the group discussion before the decision might have gone. I’m just excited and honored to be here. And I look forward to having you take me out when I say something stupid. :)

    Thanks all.

    And Raymond, I appreciate the nod to the spelling. While some of my relatives apostatized early on by adopting the “Swenson” spelling, I am part of the loyal Danish line that retains the “en”.

    Nothing against the Swedes, mind you. I even own a Saab. (Classic, pre-GM)

    Two excellent choices.

    Grats Alison and Rory, I’m looking forward to your posts.
