Last night just b4 midnight it started, and it kept up most of the night. Trees branches bested by its wet weight snapped free and plummeted to snowy mother earth. So much snow depth that the sun’s rays did not reach my solar panel. Danny’s street had about 3″ of wet snow. Sedona has snow plows as 1 made 1 pass on narrow 2 lane street. By noon the sun and warm temps dried the street.
Spent part of morning w/ Danny helping him understand iPod.
Plan today is for dinner @ Jim & Jan’s with me making by request another Waldorf salad w/ more dates and orange. Headed down to BnB. I stopped @ Circle K for h2o from vending machine. I drink bulk filtered h2o. Dave of Fat Tire pulled in behind me. He said he was following me. We stood outside in the sunshine, me in shirt sleeves, talking about trail advocacy. Dave said that he has known Dave Turner for 20 years. Turner told him he is going off shore to have his bikes made, one more made in America brand not made in America anymore.
April 23 24 is a big weekend here in Sedona. The first mtn bike festival will happen as will be a Turner demo. Also, Headsup, the owners of the Red Agave resort are throwing a party for me in honor of mt 1000 day odyssey. Zack has contacted Bike mag and MBA about the celebration. Come on down for a festival riding weekend.
Every day I get more pain free movement of my right arm. I have been off the pain pills for several days although I still experience pain. I raised my bed today to learn it is still on the heavy lifting effort list.
Still staying @ Danny’s house.
Yesterday afternoon I was inside my van and he was in his house. A VW bus drove down the street, Danny went out to greet the driver whom he knew. He invited her into his house. Somehow he roped him into helping him w/ his Apple computer. Juju is Lebanese raised in CA and US but she still has a sing sing accent that made for lots of laughs. Somehow Danny set her up for dinner and she invited us to her house for authentic Hummus. What a laughing evening it turned out to be, another midnight bedtime.
Went for a 80 min walk on neighborhood streets near BnB. Muscles have atrophied.
Have had a nagging headache for several days. Next week I get my eyes checked same place as last year.
