A messed up video clip and whatever else I got

I was cleaning out my phone's files today and forgot that I had shot this for blog purposes. I think the reason that I didn't put it up here back then (Dec. 20, 2007) was that it cut off early and was misleading. I was standing at the place where the pioneers came through one canyon and down another to reach the Salt Lake Valley. The problem was that most of the shot shows Parley's Canyon, how you get from Salt Lake City to Park City and Deer Valley. Ignore some of the details and just enjoy me blabbing away. Since this video was shot we have had massive snow fall in this area. So, picture a wall of snow behind me if it were up to date.

Today I was a little hoarse. When I was little, I wanted to be a big horse. I guess I will just have to settle being a little one, for now. That is much funnier if I say it, rather than type it. The throat will not get better until my treatments are done, according to my doctor. My doctor also got after me for losing four pounds this past week. I'm supposed to maintain my weight for treatment but all this crap they do to you makes you not want to eat much. It used to be because of nausea, but recently it has been because of my throat and mood. I hope that it doesn't become a lingering problem--the mood crap.

I had a dream last night that a younger guy was hired on at my work to do what I do and everybody liked him better. I don't know why I had this dream, but it bugged the hell out of me. What crazy dreams do you guys get that are like this?

Alright, I don't want to miss The Simpsons. Gotta get going!

Cool. I heart history lessons.

Sorry I've been absent a lot.

Vera~ I wish my camera phone was higher resolution and could take longer clips, then I could have said more.

Nice to see you and to hear your voice, such things are always imagined and what I have noticed here in blogland is that they are seldom much different from the real thing. :-)

Gorgeous place you are at in these shots. I went to the zoo yesterday. It wasn't much of one really however, they only had a single animal. A dog. It was a Shitzu.
Hmm, well, I was trying to cheer you up with a giggle, but I think that was worse than a little hoarse. ;-)

Take care of you, xo

I always have crazy dreams! I used to have this recurring dream about drowning when I was a kid, and then when I was about 12 I finally learned to swim, and the dreams went away. Now when I'm stressed I dream about work.

I liked the video. Looks like a lovely place.

Oh boy, there's not enough room in a comments box to write about the crazy dreams I have!! But tonight you can be sure it will have something to do with either you, mountains, or salt. (yes, I know that's not salt behind you... but you say it in your video and for some reason I'm sure that will make its way in!)

Hugs BABE!!! Not too much longer to go for treatments!! Do your best to keep eating, okay?!!

Love the video.
I am the QUEEN of weird dreams.
I am being chased by a Ninja and I'm in my long nightgown nearly tripping all the while running from him. All I can see is his intimidating eyes.
It's really creepy..he'll catch me and staple me to the wall, or stitch me into the carpet.
It's been recurrent for years!

Have a great Valentines Day, all the best!

Everyone I know has all these crazy dreams. I don't.

Hope all the good ones come true!
