I appreciate your reply about Qwest and such. I now have Qwest, phone, internet, and Direct TV. Not sure what my bill will be monthly, as I just added the Direct TV. The phone and internet are reasonable and the internet is fast with no complaints. I am just signed up for Basic TV,,no HBO, Stars... I have a different company in Woodland Park, so my bill might be a surprise!

Now, I just realized I need to change banks. Just easier to have everything near, especially during the winter. The closest Chase bank is Manitou, but Walgreen's does have a Chase ATM. The Cripple Creek site needs a good update, as there is no good info on it.
I did see where there is a First National Bank here in Cripple Creek.
I've only been here for a few weeks, but it just feels right! I know that sounds rather odd, but at 58, if it feels right, I am going with it. All the people I have met and had to deal with have been very friendly.

Plus, hearing Hee Haw Hee Haw about 5 AM is just wonderful!! I don't mind the donkeys roaming around my yard. Now, I do occasionally have 5 raccoons that stop at night. I am trying to deter these little guys from stopping. I don't have any garbage or dog food outside. I had a big dog years ago that 2 raccoons tore up in a bad way!! I don't want this to happen to my smaller dog now.
So,,I am loving Cripple Creek!!! One thing I must do is buy a washer and dryer, as I don't think the town has a laundry. I just drive to Woodland Park, do laundry, go to Walmart, and pick up anything else needed.

Colobeth, I'm glad to hear that you're really liking it there! I thought the entry you posted was really cute. I lived in WP many moons ago.... About the donkeys.. Back when they had mining in the Cripple Creek area.. they took donkeys down in the mines and kept them down there for quite a long time. Many of the local urban donkeys are generations present from that long ago past. My husband and I loved exploring around Cripple Creek and Victor area. All of my old bottles are from those areas... where locals would dig in their yards and find old bottles that had been buried in former outhouses back in the 1800s. Enjoy!

Hey! That is a GREAT Ace Hardware! They are better stocked than many stores in large cities. I don't know what I'd do without them. Well, that's not quite true, I'd have to go to Woodland Park more often.

They are small compared to Lowes or Home Depot, if that is your context.

Which brings up one of the few, but serious, vexations about the area generally - if you really, really need some less common hardware, electrical, plumbing item it is a half day round trip into Colorado Springs to get it.
