I love the moment when you realize the clouds have lifted and the sun is out for a second day in a row. I awoke to a blanket of clouds this morning. As I was walking through the dining room, a.k.a. my commute to work, I saw that magnificent glow coming through the window. After looking at the forecast we are mentally prepared for rain for the next week. Yesterday was amazing. The crew scattered all over the mountain trying to find that perfect sunny spot. I found mine and soaked up some vitamin D. The day hikers were out in full force. Everyone was trying to capture that perfect day.
Thanks to everyone who commented on Dolly. I think the comment about her having low self esteem was spot on. That is pretty much the conclusion we came too. As for the crew being old enough to know The Waltons, there are a few of us who used to watch it on prime time television. In the 70s, the LeConte crew would make a night of it. They would put the little tv on The Waltons and make popcorn and sit and watch it.
Oh yeah, one last note of importance. Congratulations to Chris for scoring the highest Yahtzee score this season. The crew was in awe of his score of 530.
