I'm bushed

Feelin' mighty low on energy today - hope it's just because of my hectic climbing schedule and that a few days rest will help. Wanna' be feeling ready for Saturday: gonna' climb Mt. Shuksan (9,127 ft) in a day and ski the descent - be a long day.

Haven't had much to write about lately except to post trip reports to my climbs page. I'm pretty much a one-dimensional guy right now: climbing, climbing and more climbing. Doesn't leave much room for ruminating and writing. Haven't been reading much either - that makes a difference too.

One thing of note: I went down to Salem, OR w/ my Ma last Saturday for my great-uncle's burial and memorial. He was the last of my Grandpa Cammack's (also deceased) brothers. My Grandma Orpha is the last of their generation - they've all lived into their 90's so I guess one can't complain too much. I went mainly to see Grandma and tell her I love her, 'cause I do and don't see her often. She keeps trucking along, though slower these days. 'Spose she's a bit lonely but Ma goes down often to see her and cheer her.

Some quotes re. grandmothers:
Grandma always made you feel she had been waiting to see just you all day and now the day was complete.
~MARCY DeMAREE

Grandmas hold our tiny hands for just a little while, but our hearts forever.
~AUTHOR UNKNOWN

We should all have one person who knows how to bless us despite the evidence, Grandmother was that person to me.
~PHYLLIS THEROUX

What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies.
~RUDOLPH GUILIANI
