I’ve been camping around Elko NV at various store parking lots… just waiting out the two weeks before payday… and day after tomorrow is it. Yahooooooo! I think I gotta go over those mountains to get to Salt Lake City, UT. It’s been so cold here. Uggghhh!
A couple of days ago, I splurged and bought Frosted Flakes (see photos below). Last night I splurged and got dinner from a Chinese place… rice, sesame chicken, and seafood combo, and two egg rolls. Oh boy, did that hit the spot. And I got a couple fortune cookies:
1) You’ll accomplish more later if you have a little fun this weekend.
OK that fits. I had fun this weekend, sleeping in each day, doing two sketches for pay (total $100.00), listening to music, watching some t.v. shows, and going to bed early.
I’m ready for MORE accomplishments.
2) Next full moon brings an enchanting evening.
Gotta go look that up, just so I don’t miss it. Hum, May 5 will be the next full moon. That is the day I am suppose to arrive at my summer job/home.. at the campground. Ya think I’m a’gonna meet a fella???? Maybe not. Maybe I’m just going to feel really enchanted when I reach my summer home.
Today I will finish the two sketches I’m working on and then do an inventory of all the food on board. My plan for Colorado is to only come down off the mountain about once a month. That takes a bit of careful planning. Anyone interested in seeing the food inventory and the one-month plan for food purchases???
Today is my eldest son’s birthday… he is 46. WHAT? How can that be? Happy Birthday, Chris.

Chris’ daughter, Zoey in 2008, Wenatchee, WA.
Chris in Tehran Iran, 1966. So that made me hungry for Frosted Flakes… something I haven’t had for years.
Chris and his girlfriend, Jenelle, hiked the entire Pacific Crest Trail together… this at Crater Lake.
When I got my Master’s Degree, Chris drove back to Indiana from Maryland with me for my commencement. Thanks, Chris, that meant the world to me. Wish your brother and Tori had come too.
Chris and Jenelle hiked the whole Pacific Crest Trail in five months. Guess they figured they were compatible after all that and so they got married by Elvis in Vegas.
Once a backpacker, always a backpacker.
This is their first child, Zoey. Too cute.

Beautiful Zoey at Christmas. Reading and books are their favorite activities. They get two stories read to them each night before bedtime. They’ve asked me to only send books as gifts.
This is the first time I ever saw Will… and isn’t that the greatest smile.
Will and I had matching haircuts.
Zoey really loves her baby brother and is so gentle with him.
Grandma really loves Zoey’s little brother too, but wasn’t so gentle with him… first time I picked him up out of his car seat, I caught his finger in the buckle and made him cry. Made him cry??? I made myself cry! Thank goodness he won’t remember it.
It doesn’t get any better than this. Not even tomorrow. Chris and Jenelle, you are beautiful and are great parents. Thank you for the wonderful gifts you have given me… Will and Zoey.
