Aspen is a life to live…

I don’t even want to look at when I last posted anything.  Worst.  Blogger.  Ever. So, last weekend we headed to Snowmass Village to stay at Tina’s uncle’s house on the golf course.  Tina, her nephew, and her uncle all spent loads of time on various golf courses around the area.  I hung out and [...]

The Army goes rolling along…

Last week, I went to South Carolina for the first time.  And North Carolina, actually… And Chicago.  All for the first time. Jimmy has been at Fort Jackson for the past few months for his Army basic training, and I went with Tina to watch him graduate!  It was quite exciting!  It was wonderful to [...]

Just too busy being fabulous…

Ha ha ha ha ha!  I crack myself up. So, it’s been a busy couple of weeks!  After that lovely 2 week holiday shutdown, I went back to work.  And guess what!  It hasn’t slowed down. Aside from work, I’ve been busy with some fun stuff too.  A couple of weekends ago, I got a [...]

All is quiet on New Year’s Day…

Happy New Year! It’s been an eventful couple of weeks! Christmas in Greeley was relatively quiet and definitely white!!  (Think Colorado Christmas by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band… lovely!)  Tina’s sister and niece came up from Colorado Springs to visit on Christmas day (with tiny Jersey the chihuahua), and Lady (the giant St. Bernard) was here [...]

Sitting downtown in a railway station…

So here are some of the other cool things I learned/observed/thought were nutty during our trip to Prague… The subway there is crazy deep.  We rode some escalators that went for days… apparently, because of the soil, they had to go very deep underground to build it. Always carry a compass.  That might make it [...]

Food, glorious food!

So, if you read yesterday, and looked at the gazillion pictures, you saw a picture of one of the deliciously wonderful things we ate in Prague – the ginormous Belgian waffle with 3 kinds of chocolate sauce and whipped cream.  Yum!  This shop also had lots of gourmet chocolates and hard candies.  You could watch [...]

You wouldn’t believe where I’ve been…

**Updated… I just realized that trying to view the slideshow right from here doesn’t always work, AND it doesn’t show any of the captions for the pictures.  So… if you would like, you can click the link to view the pictures larger, then it should take you to the Shutterfly slide show! Finally!  A post. [...]

Who’s gonna drive you home tonight?

I should look into being rich so I can hire myself a driver. So, back in my younger days, I might have had a bit of a bad temper.  I know that will come as a shock to some of you.  And, back in my younger days, my temper may have once in a while [...]

I want to grow something wild and unruly…

This has been one of those weeks where I really wish I hadn’t given myself this self-imposed rule about talking about work here.  Because, oh, there’s SO much I could talk about.  So much that it took me a few days to even think of something else to write about. It’s getting cold!!  No snow [...]

And the Colorado Rocky Mountain High…

I wanted to use that one on Friday afternoon, sitting outside on a golf course looking at Mount Daly, but no dice on an internet connection!  A whole weekend with (almost) no internet!  Wow. Over the weekend I got to go on what is becoming an annual trip to Snowmass Village – right next door [...]
