Tuesday was a long day. Posted my blog, took my computer into Turk in GP, headed to Costco..... Shopped until I dropped. Home to Ace to get a new battery for my photo viewer, got some kindling from Dave (thanks so much!!!) .. then to drop off Costco items Jeannie wanted and have a glass of wine. Yesterday I did nothing much ... some housework, fed Dave & PJ's fish, messed with this laptop, cooked..... My pals Jeannie and Bill have headed out for a few weeks in their motorhome. No snow on the summit. Should be nice weather all the way.

All I know. Nuff said. HAPPY VALENTINE's DAY! Ciao.
