Winter is about over, Spring is in the air in the desert. We have had some nice rains this winter and the desert is far greener than I thought it would or could be. The bushes that looked dead are green with life and ready to put on a show of color. I have not done much beyond eating and sleeping this whole winter. I did reads some good books. I have taken some side trips each month but all in all I have rested. Lost a brother this last Nov. but did get to visit with him before I came West. One never know when life is going to hand you something you don't want. But handle it we must. But if you can rejoice in a birth of child then you have to except the death of a loved one. Time and life waits for no one.
Have my job for the summer at Mt. Rushmore. As long as I enjoy those that I work with I will keep coming back. I will leave this area during the first 10 days of April and return back here the first of Oct. I have decided for a while I will only work the summer months. But that is not set in concrete.
But it is my plan. One has to have a plan. I enjoyed the winter and the people that are staying at the same park. Most are Canadian but they have been fun to be around.
