The morning started out dark, clear, slight breeze but cool, in the 50’s. As the dawn sky emerged, it was clear blue sky with sparse stratus cirrus clouds. The sky above sierras in the path of the sun was bright red layered with analogous colors from red, orange, yellow, light green, light blue, blue to deep blue. Beautiful display of colors. As the morning progressed the color turned to bright pastel colors. As the sun emerged, it rose mightily over the Sierras with its grand entrance and illuminating the sky. The fiery orange sphere lighten the sky and warmed the air. the rabbit was still at the basketball court. Completed walking 6 miles at 8:10 AM, in 1 hour 14 minutes and 25 seconds.

Talked to Doris at 9:50 AM: Doris is well and rested. The weather was sunny but foggy. The weather yesterday was hailstorm, it was s funny sight to see the dogs trying to catch the hails with their mouth, barking and running around in circles. The dogs were probably having a fabulous time with the hailstorm. We had a nice visitation yesterday and CO Cruz was asking about Doris. I told him, Doris will visit on 2/24/2024. Karlee and Chris will attend Crystal’s wedding in Australia but are leery and thinking about visiting on their own. They went to Disneyland last week with Chris’s niece and sister for a few days before coming to visit me. I told Doris I will have ACE Classes, administer examination for Oceanography Class, Class Reports, Book Report and Spanish lessons. Oralia will test my Spanish proficiency when I get home.
