    Has anybody ever used a paper shredder for this? I've got a large amount of old Gs and when the time comes to get rid of them, I don't want to be sitting there cutting up the symbols for two hours.

    Ha, we are so weird. Just throw them away
    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    Why remove the symbols if you’re just going to burn the remaining rags? Just burn them whole and save yourself the cutting.

    See above. I just save them up and then take them to a campfire situation when the opportunity presents itself.

    Just burning the symbols, not the rags.

    Dear President Bednar,

    We tracted 60 hours this week, and had three disco's. We're sure that our hard work will pay off with more discussions in the near future. We're thrusting in our sickles and laying our good works before The Lord.

    The Elders in my district are letting go of the Iron Rod a little too much lately, so at our next district meeting I'm going to back over some of the basics. Things like personal hygiene and disposal of worn out garments. Some of our lazy elders are just throwing them out, and not removing the marks. Some are removing the marks, shredding them, and using the left overs as rags. Some of the better missionaries are going by the book and burning the marks, either all together or independently. Elder Pelado may be going too far by praying and reading scriptures by fire as he destroys the emblems of his allegiance. The emphasis at our meeting will be the White Bible and we'll follow more closely the inspired words of the Brethren.

    Conference is coming up and I understand that you'll be speaking once more. If you need, I'll be happy to suggest some topics, or to help you write part of your talk with you. My mother tells me I'm quite the wordsmith in my letters home. If it's not too much trouble perhaps you could give a shout-out to our CS district while at the podium. If not the whole district, then just say "clack" somewhere in your talk and my parents and ward back home would be so proud.

    All the best to Sister Bednar,

    elder clackamascoug

    I did a search in Citation Index, and there's only one "clack" reference. There's nothing for "diddley". Go figure.

    A week or so ago I went to buy new g's, but the shelves were bare of anything remotely my size in my fabric of choice. The saleslady said that they've been out of stock for quite some time and don't know when they'll get more in. Looking online, everything is sold out. You don't suppose a conference surprise will be for them to get out of the business and to have us roll our own, do you?

    Yeah, I stopped by the local Deseret Book just this past Monday. I've had a dozen tops in plastic bags sitting around for a few years and thought maybe I should get some matching bottoms. The last time I went to an LDS Distribution Center, you told them what you needed and they brought it out from a back room. You can actually pick your own stuff now. They only had four of what I needed, although if I were fatter, or thinner, or willing to wear something other than 100% cotton, there would have been more available. I'm going to call and check what they have in stock before going back for the other eight.

    Other 8?

    I go three days for bottoms and two days for tops between washings. Do you do less than that? You should be more than covered with four new bottoms.

    I have a full 7-10 days supply at all times.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Sorry to disappoint, but there was no fireside scripture study. There may have been some prayer while roasting marshmallows, though.

    The only rule about underwear that matters (for both garments and APG's) is that you have on hand at least one more pair than your spouse. That way, he/she has to do laundry before you.
