They're way on the other side of the pasture, but look content.

Beautiful sunny morning, bright sunshine blue sky in the 60's and no wind (for now). Heading to Walmart...¿ Hablas español ?

I decided to name the coaltrain that I hear a couple miles below me Roscoe P.

Montrose is having a Food and Wine Festival this weekend (I'll pass) and Ridgway is having a Brewfest (bring the kids). I'll pass on that too, never cared for beer or being around several hundred unemployed drunks.

Irrigation problem is solved (for now), I came up with an amazing never thought of first of its kind idea...neighbors meet and talk to each other. Amazing how that works out. Now everyone is sharing water, baking cookies, talking over the barbed wire.

This evening I'll make my homemade fajitas (an American classic), some grilled peppers, nachos, homemade salsa and my famous can't drink just one Margaritas and relax on the patio watching the purple glow of the West Elk mountain range as the sun sets in the west. Get along little doogie...

Well after a trip to Walmart, a whole 20 people were there, then to a nursery in Cedaredge, came back to a pretty good thunderstorm. After the storm, planted the garden. So far, I have Pumpkins, Watermelons, Cantalopes, Cherry tomatoes, regular tomatoes, sweet bananna peppers, squash, cucumbers, and bell peppers. Garden is on a raised bed with a drip irrigation system. Easy cheesy.

Owning vs renting has it's perks - like the ability to plant a garden and of course, moo, um~ mow the yard.

Look at those cute babies - ahhhhhh

I love Ridgway, the San Juans...if I ever win the lottery I'll buy a home there. But I love living in the country and in a house. It seems no matter where I go in Delta, everyone is friendly and don't have that uppity I'm better than you attitude.

Hey, Jim, have you met our little "friends," the "no-see-um gnats," yet? They can be a real "treat" about now along the ditches and streams. They love to attack the tops of my ears--10 minutes with them and I'm bleeding like crazy. Ah . . . spring.
