It is time for Chris and I to head down the mountain for some rest and relaxation. Who am I kidding, we are going to be working down there as well. We will be setting up for the Gatlinburg Farmers Market on Saturday. I am sure you all are going to enjoy Nathan's tales while we are gone. He has a gift for spinning a yarn. We are treated to some of his stories every now and again. This year, the crew has been enjoying "Radio Night". Pat and Jeanie have been recording old radio shows through their satellite radio. The crew sits around and listens to them with great amusement. Some of you may remember "Dragnet", "Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar", and the "The Fat Man". These are the shows they are listening to. It is just one of the many ways the crew enjoys being on the mountain for eight and half months. They are making memories that will last a life time.
Yesterday turned out to be a day in the clouds. We were covered all day. The high was only 53º with a low of 45º. We were told the sun was making an appearance below, but the clouds never gave way for us. It is a different day today. The sky is blue and the sun is shining. It will be a great day for a hike up the mountain.
