Onward and downward

We started our journey home today. Like geese flying south for the winter, we pulled together our belongings in tight formation and started our migration. Actually we went east across Colorado and Kansas before we turned south.

The weather was very accommodating and at the 75mph speed limit had us skimming across the heartland. […]

Blinded by the light

It started pretty well. We had the “really good” complementary breakfast as usual. Then we started making plans for the rest of the day. Maybe it was 24/7 in close contact, altitude, cold, or maybe the way the stars were aligned. In any case, shall we say, we didn’t exactly mesh like a well […]

The Pearl of Boulder

We skied again today, another bright and sunny today but it was pretty windy. The gusts sent up little snow tornadoes. If you got caught in one, it was sort of like being sand blasted with ice chips. We got in some good runs, with virtually no lift lines we were up and down […]

Demons Exorcised

Today was a glorious day. Bright, sunny, about 40 degrees in Boulder. We went to our favorite ski shop – Christy Sports and picked up our internet reserved ski packages. Then we stopped by The Whole Foods Market where the quality is high, the prices are higher and the snob appeal is off the […]

Strange but true

Today was going to be the first day on the mountain. We checked into the hotel around 9:00am so we could get our package lift tickets and be on our way. Next stop Christy Sports to get Katie’s snowboarding equipment. Mysteriously, the turn signals on our SUV stop working. We get to Christy Sports […]

It’s snowing . . . again

The morning started with a train whistle, it was followed by a pretty good breakfast, and then as we packed up the car. The temperature was around 40. One of us looked down at our french manicured toe nails and realized that the only “shoes” we had were cute little sandals that we were […]

Can you hear the whistle blowing?

The first 663 miles down another 524 to go. We made it to Clovis New Mexico on our first day. Clovis is the first town in NM after you cross over the Texas border. We made the journey with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, it really helps the time go by. The unabridged […]

Once More into the Breech

OK – it’s that time again . . . . Spring Break. We are going back to the sight of our most traumatic spring break adventure. Back, back to the Eldora – Neederland Expedition Toboggan Express.

Thanks right, Katie and I reprise our hair raising adventure of two years ago. If you […]

A When Grandma Goes To Court

Lawyers should never ask a Mississippi grandma a question if they aren’t prepared for the answer.In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, ‘Mrs. Jones, do you know me?’ She responded, ‘Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. […]
