I think you are a bit more than ready to leave sunny Delta!

Sounds like you need to give them some lead poisoning.

I've shot more than my share of skunks and raccoons here. I'm so ready to leave this miserable place. 30 days to go...

Jim....I hope you are happy with your return to Ridgway! Maybe you'll like it even more than the first time.

My oh my, I'm just about to embark on a Ridgway move. I have enjoyed reading all of Jim's posts from beginning to end. I am moving from the area around Asheville, NC. Now I have a better idea what to expect from the Ridgway/Ouray parts of CO. I have been there for short periods, but It's the first year that matters. I can only hope I can enjoy myself as much as Jim has.

What am I gonna read now??

I love living back in Ridgway. I can walk everyplace, and with a new Jeep am exploring all the county roads around here. People have been so nice, fresh clean crisp air, just great. Had our fourth snowfall yesterday, and the San Juans and Cimarrons are snow packed.

I go to Delta about once a week to mow and care for relatives lawns, but it's always so nice to make the drive back up here. And now with tourist season over, it's really quiet too.

whirledps after reading all MY posts I'm sure your head is about to explode and I apologize.
