Summit Up

Special to the Daily

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column blinking in the bright sunshine.

We had one of those sunny days here in Summit Up Land Thursday that writers try to describe in a myriad of ways – blue bird, cornflower blue, “so blue the sky looked purple” – but we’re just happy, after what seemed like two winter’s worth of cloud-cover, that the sun shone down on our happy heads and into our brown eyes for the whole darn day. We couldn’t find our favorite pair of sunglasses this morning (haven’t needed them in so long), so we squinted for 10 straight hours. We looked in the obvious places such as under the car seat (frozen French fries, gum wrappers, lots of dog hair), in the kitchen junk drawer (Wal-Mart receipts, dead batteries and a few rubber bands, which we used as hair ties since we were headed to the hill) and in the basket by the door that always holds everything but what we need to find at the moment we’re rushing out on yet another powder day.

But we found no eye protection, so we decided to throw caution to the wind and go without. Now we’re crossing our fingers, hoping the rabbit lives.***

Yes! Deborah writes with good cheer: “I would like to send an Angel Alert! Angel Alert! to the very kind gentleman in the red pickup truck that stopped, got out and made sure that I was OK after I took a fall on the ice near the Wells Fargo Bank in Frisco on Thursday. Fortunately I was fine and only a little bit shaken. He deserves a great big dose of good Karma! Thank you!”

Deborah, consider it done. May his red truck deliver him to the destination of his dreams.***

It’s Friday, folks, and we hope it’s a blue one. Somewhere on this page you can feast your eyes on another set of cute dog photos. We’ll be announcing a winner soon.We’re out at the 7-Eleven shopping for shades …
