4. His guitar teasers… hidden talents to be revealed or urban myth?


5. His ability to multitask … did he film his Mother’s Day message on the same day as his Christmas 2013 message (lose sweater, add scarf)? And why did I notice this??


6. His fashion sense:


7. His love of nature:


8. His way with words:


9. His ability to do a handstand on a moment’s notice… I’m serious about this one, I think it’s quite amazing:


10. His ability to do this at a moment’s notice:

11. The fact that he does things like this all the time and we don’t even hear about half of them:


12. His vast collection of cardigans:

    Thanks for including the link to Ray’s card. I’m delivering it Monday, hope he’s doing ok and our messages will help him through this 🙂

  9. betsy says:

    This is my favorite post ever, please leave it up for a month, thank you. 🙂
    Confession: It took me an entire day to get the “23 reasons” part. Now you know.
    I thought it was a random number, like in Buzzfeed (which is something you should be writing for)
    p.s. Everyone go there, you’ll see what I mean.

  10. Fan Dja says:

    We heard from Ray!!!!! Waiting to hear if he got his card!

    Been here to smile many times. I love this post (and TOfan)!

    I have been enjoying reasons 14-23 over and over. I wish I could see the reaction from choir members as they felt their socks being knocked off. It took me several times through the video before I could take my eyes off one certain singer, but I finally noticed the men in the corner by the door who seem to have heard Elder Archuleta sing this number before. At about 2:23, one of them was experiencing heightened anticipation for the heavenly glory note and got his wish. Another man (in glasses) left before that particular passage and then returned at the end. I think we can safely assume he knew what was coming and didn’t want to create a disruption should he swoon to the floor.

    Happy to hear that Ray is doing better!

  12. refnaf says:

    Glad to hear Ray is doing better~

  16. peppertara says:

    Don’t you just love this little New Year’s gift!

    • amb4da says:

      Oooh, yay….more surprises! I don’t even know what that song is or what he’s saying (anyone know?)…but I love all the “Spanish direction” in the beginning, his command of the rhythm and pace, even his firm handshakes and hugs at the end (can’t help but notice everything!) and what made me giggle…whatever they are saying at the end, it sounds the same as “DaVID, DaVID, DaVID!”…and I just thought….it follows him everywhere…in every language… and basically means “More, more, more!” 🙂 Tks for posting this~and Happy New Years Day, all!

    I have a small honor of being comment ’23’ unless someone is writing at the same time as I am!

    TOfan you have done something amazing these past two years while David has been away. So often when the days seemed to be dragging on or we couldn’t understand recent news, you would write something hilarious but so meaningful. I will always remember when you wrote about living under the bridge following a request from David. Wow, you lifted spirits so high we couldn’t stop from laughing for days!

    The administrators and writers of each of David’s sites are to be commended for all of the articles and contributions day after day until we are here at #2014. There will still be gaps and maybe more gasps but we made it this far so thank you!

    Happy 2014!! I have listened to #14-23 many times so far, absolutely beautiful!!

      Yes. What she said. Many thanks TOfan, and to all the DA sites….your creativity and hard work, keeping the DAlove flowing is always amazing and so appreciated.

      • TOfan says:

        And yes! Kudos to all sites & fans who’ve made it this far (I know we’ve lost a few… both sites and fans 😦 )… here’s to #DA2014!!!

    • TOfan says:

      {{{{SB}}}} Happy New Year, Lynn! Hope it’s not too frosty out there in Nova Scotia!

      You mean, this post?
      https://snowangelzz.com/2013/01/04/dear-david-2/ … I actually forgot it was a response to last year’s New Year’s messages, lol… how far we’ve come, eh? 😆

  18. Kizzi says:

    Happy 2014 to all at SAz! A year of many joys to anticipate.

    Great post TOfan. 😀

    Ray, I am so happy you are recovering.

    Though I haven’t seen any one face to face in over 2 years, the sense of a close knit group of fellow David fans is strong and thriving. Thanks TOfan for “keeping the faith” and a touchstone for this fan.
