The morning started out dark and cool, in the 50’s. The big round moon was in the Western sky. The rabbits were grazing on the field and Labrona was grazing near the basketball court but her juvenile rabbits were chasing each other. the dawn sky emerged with the beautiful analogous colors radiating out from the path of the sun: brown, red, orange, yellow, light green, light blue, blue, and dark blue sky. As the morning progressed, the analogous colors turned to pastel colors. Th rabbits left the field but Labrona and her rabbits were hanging out by the basketball court. As the glorious big round golden sphere emerged over the Sierras, the pastel colors turned to light blues color, it brightened the cloudless sky and warmed the air. Helped unloaded some merchandise for the Commissary. Finished walking 6 Miles at 8:00 AM, in 1 hour 13 minutes and 34 seconds. Average walking times were: 12 minutes and 8 seconds per mile (milla) or 49 seconds per lap (vuelta). Stretched and split stretched at the basketball court in the morning sunshine until 8:30 AM. Checked email form Doris: Doris is well and she has a good nights rest. She walked 8726 steps, 15.9 inches step length and symmetry was 87%. That was the 64 th consecutive days she closed the ring.
