Down Highway 99

Checked the internet for a more traditional look at the Ninth Day.

On the 9th day of Christmas my true love gave to me -

Nine Ladies Dancing
The nine Fruits of the Holy Spirit: 1) love, 2) joy, 3) peace, 4) patience, 5) kindness
6) generosity, 7) faithfulness, 8) gentleness, and 9) self-control. (Galatians 5:22)

That makes the ninth day spiritually rich.

Today Jim and I drove from San Francisco to the San Joachim Valley to Jim's hometown. Memories all the way, especially when we rode down Highway 99 enjoying the mix of the old famliar with the new. But the real treat was riding down the highway with the visibility so clear that we could see the sun lit snow capped Sierra Mountain peaks to our left for miles. Beautiful. Awesome.

Brought back memories of Jim taking me to Yosemite Park in 1959 for my first sight of these majestic mountains. It was love at first sight although the drive up on a two lane road with no guard rails was the real reason my heart was pounding.

Jim and I played with those memories and later we brought his sister and brothers into the game of recapturing memories.

But you never stay on a straight path when you talk memories, do you? How we got
there I don't know but we started listing candies we used to eat at the movies: necco wafers, hot tamales, jujubees, raisinets, boston baked beans, and more and more. Brought back some good times and we agreed to meet for a quick supper before a movie date tomorrow evening. Sounds good.

How funny, Ellouise. I was just writing tonight about my mind wandering from one thought to the next, and here you are writing the same thing a day or two ahead of me! Good writing, and it sounds like you're having a great trip.
