Wow, one day behind on my diary and I feel like I am a week behind! John managed to get all the upgrades on Ginny’s computer but when it came to doing the Apple Care there were some personal questions so he took it back this morning and told her where it was at and felt she could go from there with it. He said goodbye to them as they were leaving today and wished them a good trip. I wasn’t presentable when they left but had said goodbye last night and we hope to meet up in the spring at home.

Today was another beautiful day so we decided to drive up Mt. Lemon, what a scenic drive and it was so interesting to see the change in vegetation the higher we climbed. We went to Summerville where they are building a lot of new, beautiful, chalets then continued to the top of the mountain and the ski run. We took the T-Bar lift to the top of the ski hill - what a beautiful view. This morning I was kind of mumbling about how hot it was, well, this afternoon we were freezing on the ski lift!! Fortunately we had jackets in the truck so our upper bodies were warm but with both of us having worn shorts today we found our legs quite cool – okay we warmed up quickly when coming back down the mountain and by the time we got back to the bottom we had to turn the a/c on in the truck. Today was our day for getting our snow fix for the year – we saw it and said “thank goodness we didn’t have to deal with this stuff this winter!”.

We couldn’t believe the number of bikers going up the mountain, sure do give them a lot of credit as it would be a real hard climb. Coming back down there was a fellow on a bike flying down, we couldn’t catch up to him until we reached the bottom! I would be petrified about falling off my bike at that speed as I don’t think it would be a pretty picture if that should happen – they sure have more nerve than I do.

By the time we got home it was time to think about dinner – where does the time go! And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to the mystery of tomorrow.
