"My family has been around since the start of our religion too!" said one of them. "My great-great-something grandfather was one of Joseph Smith's bodyguards."
"Ah...wasn't Joseph Smith killed?" I said.
"So he can't have been a very good bodyguard, then." I said.
"Well, he couldn't protect him in prison!" he said all huffily.
"Fair enough," I said. I felt a little bad for them, they were so young and nervous. And they didn't have any answers for me when I asked them why there was no archeological evidence for the Lost Tribes of Israel coming to America.
We went to the zoo on Wednesday because we never made it to see the animals at ZooBoo. We had the whole place to ourselves! It was amazing. At the front gate the clerk said only 29 people had come all day. It was a beautiful, crisp fall day. We saw one of the rhinos chasing the zebras and ostriches in his enclosure, and we finally made it all the way back to the elephants.
