This morning we left at 7:40. We knew that it would take longer to get to San Diego due to rush hour traffic. Sister Fanning ordered a dozen donuts from the Donut Bar in downtown San Diego. They are well known for their special flavors and huge donuts. There is also another store in Las Vegas. Their donuts have been featured on Food Network, The Ellen Show, Guilty Pleasures, USA Today, and the Conan O’Brian Show. We had heard that there was always a line out the door. We ordered the night before so we were sure we could get what we wanted. They run from $1 to $5 each depending on toppings, fillings, and size. We managed to get a parking space right in front of the store. When we told the owner that we were taking them to the USO, He gave us six free donuts, including the strawberry and cream.
We got to the USO about 8:45 for our 9:00 shift. Everyone was excited about the donuts. They took our picture and posted it on Facebook. We really enjoyed the donuts. The large ones are almost too thick to get into your mouth and are at least six inches across. We worked at the main counter checking people in for the Community Chest. We also received three carts of bread and bakery items that Sister Fanning inventoried and put on the tables. We finished our shift at noon.
We stopped at the mission office to return the tire gauges that Elder Fanning left in his pocket after vehicle inspections. We visited with Elder and Sister Cummings for a while.
We went to the Eastlake Navy Pharmacy to pick up prescriptions.
We had lunch at McDonalds.
We stopped at Costco for gasoline and bread. There were a couple of items that they did not have.
While we were at Costco we had a call from the Military Liaison for the San Diego 8th Ward. She was wondering when we were coming to church at their Ward. They meet at 11:00, so even if we go there, we can’t stay for the whole block. So we made an appointment to meet with her next week.
We spent the rest of the afternoon and evening working on computer work and packing for the trip tomorrow.
We got to bed on time.
