You know how much I hate facebook. I now hate myspace even more. I would like to tell you Hugh... Was at Yosemite last month and it was gorgeous. Had a couple of huge black crows keeping an eye on me, thought of you. I pulled out some walnuts and they followed me about.
There were lots of snow in Yosemite even though they said it hadn't snowed in two weeks when I called up. I think they forgot to mention there is about 3 feet of snow still sitting there.
As we were walking along a hikers path. A lady, which I thought was from some foreign country, spoke to me in some strange language. I said, pardon me... I do not understand what you are saying. She says again... 'pat... is clear?' 'much snow?' .... Oh I said, the path is totally clear, there isn't any snow or ice at all. She looks at me with a surprise and said thank you....
You see she thought I was one of the Asian tourists. Haa haaa..... I thought she was some strange tourist with a heavy accent... She was some silly American trying to sound Asian.
I don't know how you put up with it. You must have developed the kind of professional detachment we all wish we could muster in times like those. When I say we, I mean me and anyone inclined to agree. All the credit goes to you.
