[2]look up there? It was so cloudy here that we could not see them at all.It has been very warm and dusty here for several days but we are all well. Grandma is much better and walked around the pavement yesterday.I do not see how you managed to do so much hard walking with nothing to eat except crackers and chocolate especialy when you slept among bears and rattlesnakes on a boulder so we were glad to hear that you were camping[3]with people who gave you plenty to eat and I suppose blanketsDid you see any wild sheep up in the mountains and were there many strawberries or other wild berries where you have been?Our little puppy is growing fast and is learning to know his name and also how to tear up flowers and anything else he can reach.Some of the sweet water and little black grapes over at the other place are ripe.Uncle David Aunt Ette and Miss Kennedy
