"You've been drinking a lot of Rye whiskey with TANG again, haven't you Richard."
"Um. Not without food Jane."
"I put an olive in each drink!"
My new concoction is called: "Take Me To The Moon"; but, sometimes I call it: "To the Moon Alice."
Jane: "Your kidney function is down to 4 %."
"It looks like I'll be going to a funeral soon."
You know, that conversation got me thinking: "Let's add LDS (Mormon) Cheesy Funeral Potatoes to our 4th FHE Lesson in the series: Joseph Smith and the Treasure Guardian: http://richkelsey.org/lds_fhe_lesson_4.html
Which I did this morning.
Like the Kool-Aid in a previous lesson: with & without sugar.
And like the Jell-O in a previous lesson: with & without bananas & whipped topping.
The Funeral Potatoes are presented with & without ham. The ham representing early accounts of the, angel / treasure guardian, who was guarding the golden plates.
The question is: "Who likes their potatoes better without ham?"

How many of us are aware that the original name for the lunar module was "Alice" not "Eagle." That name was given to the lunar module based upon Jackie Gleason saying, "to the moon Alice" on the TV series, "The Honeymooners." NASA changed the name of the lunar module over concerns that a man hitting his wife so hard that she ends up landing on the moon may not be the way man's first Moon landing should be represented. Much later, in 2017, Rich Kelsey named a drink "to the moon Alice" to commemorate America's space program.
