The happenings of the Billy and Sheri Wardle family
What's In This Blog
I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Angels Camp: Utica Park
We stopped just long enough for a potty break, but this park was interesting. There were tiles someone had made to decorate the potty. I looked the dancing circle. Tony liked the scorpian but wasn't sure he liked the finger nails.
This face was also very nice.
The park had a plaque by a sequoia tree, and talked of the scoutmaster and troop that had planted it. It also had a memorial garden to those who died in a mining accident. The South shaft of the Utica
Mine collapsed killing14 men. An article I read said they were crushed under the collapsed roof. However the plaque claims three more in the collapse made it out through the South shaft. The park was build over the old mine, the mine being filled in.
We are the Wardles. I am Billy. We are the parents of 8, one in Heaven
(stillborn,) 6 birth and 1 adopted. Four are away from home, two
daughters married and two sons in the Logan area going to school. Tony,
our adopted son is 11 years younger than our youngest birth child, so
he is greatly spoiled. I have worked for the Duckwater Shoshone Tribe, Utah State Social Services, part of the time working with the Ute Tribe, Uintah Basin Counseling and Santa Clara County Mental Health for the last 21 years. Active Mormon and I follow the prophet.
