What a wicked game to play…

Saturday night, we went to see Chris Isaak in concert at Union Colony Civic Center.  So, I first decided to love Chris Isaak (Decided.  As if I had any choice in the matter.) back in high school.  Yea, a long time ago.  Long.  I picked up his eponymous LP (yep, long time ago!) at a [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Viva Las Vegas!

So, I’m in Vegas this week.  Got here yesterday morning, attended a conference all day, went to bed early, got up early and presented, then spent all day attending more conference sessions.  I learned LOTS!  And found LOTS of cool software type stuff my company should buy.  But… I am a boring boring old girl. [...]

Like a night at the county fair

We went to the county fair over the weekend!  Our county fair is kinda small and quiet and relaxed, especially after the big spectacle of the Stampede – no carnival or concerts or craziness.  A LOT of 4-H stuff though.  But I like to go and check out some of the animals and the crafty [...]

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer…

I got asked a funny question the other day. Someone asked me if Grover had been to training classes.  That question was particularly funny, because at the time, Grover and Tillie were wandering around the backyard making googly-puppy-eyes at anyone that had a burger in their hands, looking like they hadn’t been fed in weeks.  [...]

It’s always roses and daisies…

Tonight will be fun!  And different from my usual Friday night on the couch!  Tina and I are heading to Angie Stevens and the Beautiful Wreck’s new CD release party!  One of my favorite old bosses introduced me to her a couple of years ago, back when he was just an obsessive number one fan/stalker.  [...]

Beer Wench

Here’s a picture of Mom recovering from her Breckenridge Oktoberfest adventures.  I didn’t get a pic of her carrying the liter-size mugs, 5 in each hand, though… Thanks to Josh (Tina’s nephew) for picking up the apron.  Dad wanted a picture of one of these, and this way I didn’t have to stop a random stranger [...]

I’m back. Again. Worst Blogger Ever.

OK, I’m back again.  I’m such a big slacker – I’m always thinking of stuff to post, and then never posting it.  So, we’ll start fresh, here on July 20, with a craft project and an observation! Here’s what I’m wearing today.  I got the jade beads in Chinatown in Toronto.  I don’t usually do [...]

I’d bet it all on a good run of bad luck…

Viva Las Vegas! Got back last night from this awesome conference in Vegas!  (Wow, yes, I’m a geek.  Who else gets this excited about stuff like that?)  I went to classes four days in a row, and I think I learned more than my brain can possibly hold.  We’ll see if it sticks!  Anything that [...]
