Apparently it wasn't
Elder Dixon
in the
Here's a little paragraph
from his
letter today.

"But, on a more somber note, I am crumbling under my guilt, folks...I really am sorry to inform you that it wasn't me in the Ensign...I didn't think I would trick you!! That Elder just happened to look exactly like me. Elder Babcock was reading the Ensign when we were in Slovenia, and he turned to me and said, "Is that you??", and I said "Is that me???" It was crazy. I thought I was looking at a pic of myself! So, I came up with the deceiving idea to tell my fam it was me, and made up a whole story to go along with it... :( My bad!! Now, people are writing me, telling me I'm famous and that they have told friends and stuff. I didn't think you would fall for it! Hahahha...I apologize, y'all. That was really natural man style...I hope you can forgive. Haha, that's funny.

So.....sorry to lie.

But I still think it is him.
Maybe someone
took that picture
at the MTC when he
was practicing
and he didn't
know it.
It is the hand gesture.
So Ryan.
Or not.
Or is it?

I will send a retraction to Drew next week when I write him.
I had already passed along the "lie".
Good news travels fast.
I'm telling you . . . he had me fooled.
What a goofball!

I don't think Ryan has ANY idea how many people have been told that he's in the Ensign! He would die.

And I totally thought it was him too. 100% fooled. I am more than half expecting him to write again next week and say just kidding again, it was really me after all!

AHHHH. I just sent an email to my missionary son, Elder Steve Larsen, and told him about Elder Dixon. He even commented on it--oh well, it will give me something else to tell him in next week's email. (Steve knows Ryan well)

Definitely "hook, line, and sinker" for me, too. Something to tell the grandkids about, I guess! I'm still going to save that copy of the Ensign! ;)

Well, do you remember when cousin Andrew was SO modeling in a magazine? No one claimed it was him, but as I recall someone asked Diane about it at church or something. He was also mistaken for Billy Baldwin......

At any rate, it DOES look like him. What a scream! :o)
