Driven to excellence in everything she does, Samanatha has been known to practice her oboe in the snow on climbing treks as well as study to keep her grades up.

Um. Really not all that smart to practice in the snow, unless the oboe is plastic. So I wonder if that part of the article is really true. Still, this girl has a whole lot more ambition than I. (Okay, maybe that’s not really saying much, eh?) Kudos to the youngest person to climb Everest.

Me? I climbed out of bed this morning. Not bad, eh?

    …and I thought the altitude in Colorado was bad!

  2. Patricia Mitchell

    And breathing? Yikes!
