Got together today with Fred and Daisy, Jack & Ellie Dalmaijer, some pie and ice cream, and of course some wine As we left well after dark, Jack said it was the longest lunch he had ever been at ;D Cannot begin to tell you who all we talked about!
Sorry for the delay in getting into this. We certainly had a great time with all of you, and having a small get-together was so very enlightening. Getting to hear of the adventures of the Dalmaijers and the good things they do in their life to help make the world a better place is indeed a high-light for us, and we always look forward to hearing what they've been up to. They are truly caring people and we are so priviledged to be friends with them.
The snow was fleeting, as it was gone in a few hours. It's still up on the very top of the mountains, just where it should be. However, we were not sorry to see it, since that is the only snow we had all winter. We usually have some in Dec. and Jan. and almost always in the mountains. It was a welcome sight, as it means a little more water in the aquifer..... Jim is up a couple of hundred feet higher than where our house is, and we didn't get enough here to stick to the ground. He deserves it for living in the "high country"..
Today we were running around in short sleeves getting a sun-tan. Ahhhhh, it felt good. And we were with the Johnsons again for lunch. <G>
We were up in the 60s today....I was actually working in the yard in a t-shirt and was thinking about starting the garden....I shouldn't tempt the snow goddess like that!!
Snow down here is almost all gone but Mike has a picture he took yesterday of the Abajos (AKA The Blues) in SE Utah and there's some serious snow up there. The La Sals have even more. It'll take a heap of melting to happen between now and the Moab rally for a La Sal Loop drive to happen!!
Hmmm, at 87 you're approaching "too darn hot" Funny, I didn't mind 120 in Death Valley but now it's too hot when it hits 95. On the other hand, it's supposed to be 63 and sunny here today but snow on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Do you know what your plans in TX are? We leave on Tuesday but have not decided to go through Texas or go North and out I-40. If we go through Texas we will stop in Ft Davis, and then probably Galveston. Maybe we can run into each other.
