Not the place “Housekeeping,” but odds and ends around the blog.
We’ll be heading up to Yosemite for the Bracebridge dinner and performance this week. A room at the Ahwahnee. Ooooo ahhhh I’ll blog about the show and dinner. They recommend tuxedos. I have one and might take it. Weather looks clear but I do have chains.
One of my fun things to do is speaking on cruise ships. I will be out Jan 6-20 so if you need a book or Tshirt let me know soon. I’m thinking of putting together an internet webinar class to teach how to it. I get 3-4 Free cruises a year and just need to give four 45-minute talks. If I get something done I’ll invite guys.
It’s confirmed by Wilderness at the park – the Half Dome Stewardship Plan Environmental Assessment will not be out until January. Dunno if early or late. So enjoy the break but be ready to write in your comments. I don’t want to be a scaremonger, but “take the cables down” is one alternative.
Medical Minute: Saw my orthopedic Dr on Tuesday. No more leg brace or crutch. I’m now in rehab and have to build up slowly. My left thigh is teeny tiny and week. He said I need to go slow and it could take 4 months for full strength. Ditto my collarbone. Said the pull up the cables could be harder on the left side. Just need to get other muscles involved. Whew – not bad – 6 weeks since getting off a Harley at 30 mph. Funny – I didn’t get a ticket but was noted that I was in violation of a Code – When on a Mt road vehicle must be kept under control – Duh.

Here’s a neat shot of an ornament from Kathy T of Sacto. Snoopy on HD??
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Hello? Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me Is there anyone at home? Come on, now – I hear you’re feeling down. Well I can ease your pain. Get you on your feet again. . . . I have become comfortably numb.” – Pink Floyd
