Title Caught
Description Caught Blodwen P. Olson Non Professional First Place Anecdote He was told to be sure to attend the Sunday afternoon Conference Meeting of April 1880. His father admonished him, "Bernard, you are not showing proper respect for the Church. You didn't attend meeting this morning. You be there this afternoon. I'll expect a full report from you tonight," There was no threat, but it was implied. He was a teenager and having fun with others of his age. He was the youngest in his family and beginning to rebel against the older members. His mother was dead and his two older sisters ran the household under the supervision of his stern father. He knew he should go to the afternoon meeting and he knew he would be required to report the proceedings that evening, but It was a beautiful Spring day and the fellows and girls were having a good time just hanging around, showing off their fancy horses. Joking, riding here and there or as we say "just goofing off." The time passed quickly and when his conscience finally reminded his where he should be, the meeting was adjourned. Bernard quickly and anxiously watched for friends who had attended the meeting to learn about the program. Hopefully, he could bluff his Father into thinking he had done what he had been told to do. That evening, when he was questioned, he confidently named each speaker and described the special musical numbers. When he came to the last speaker, he said. The last man to speak was an old man with a beard that I didn't know." His father, suspecting where Bernard had been and suppressing a chuckle replied. "Well, my boy, it's strange you didn't know your own father." I never heard about the punishment After all. he was sixteen. Maybe the embarrassment was enough! (As told to me many times by my aunts but never by my father.] 34
