For every blog post I make, it seems I wind up two posts behind! I look at the recent posts and realize they are two days old and think, "Gee, John, whazzup?"
I sent an email to a Dear Friend yesterday saying I felt like a twig being carried along in a flood. What we're doing clearly isn't as hard or of the level as what we did in November-December. At least we aren't immersed in a daily grind of total grunt work. However, we are immersed in a high speed flow of events and activities. Time seems to speed along like Tod and Buz in their Corvette in the Route 66 TV show.
Sunday, we had a fine short snowshoe up on the Coconino Plateau near the Willard Springs exit on I-17. Went to Cottonwood for some frenzied shopping and then enjoyed a wonderful, beautiful afternoon at the home of The Three Wheelers. Thanks, Brad, Kate & Joshua, that afternoon is a Golden Moment in our memories!
Talked to Dear Friend Dex A. last night. He invited me on a three-day, two-night river trip this coming weekend. I think I will clear my decks and say "yes" and go.
Dear Friend and LBR Kris C. sent Susun a note saying she (Kris) is enjoying the blog. We appreciate such notes. Kris said she uses the blog to keep up with what we are doing. That's why I titled this blog "The Daily News." It's good practice for me to keep this blog updated and it does help our family and friends understand how our lives are evolving. I only hope that the blog doesn't turn into "The Daily Snooze!"
Personally, I don't like blogs that aren't updated. I won't go visit them. Why should I? So, on that note, we pledge to do a better job at penning a regular dose of Daily News. Thanks for your patience and understanding, jp.
