After I ordered the Buffalo Burger I noticed on their specials board a regular hamburger was only $5.00. The Buffalo Burger was $12.00. But it was very good, and I haven't had one in years.

Only a few guys were there at the bar, and I got to hear a great conversation about how to smuggle alcohol into concerts and sporting events. Good to be back!

Jazz moved out. I have heard of one other person to my knowledge moving out -- but the reason was complicated. I think it involved the health of a family member. Taxes are low, weather is great, prices are reasonable. Why would people want to leave? I guess unemployment is high, so that could certainly put downwards pressure on the population numbers.

When you get there go to the park - Jim will be the one sleeping under a tree (or it could be the town bum).

The town bum sleeps in a tepee in the old western town. I sleep under the cottonwood tree on the northwest corner of the park. Seems it fits my back perfectly and is a good spot to read and of course doze off. Unless Danny, the park maintenance guy decided to mow or water, then not so much.

Walked around a bit this morning, sunshine 60 degrees just perfect. Here's a few pics:





The river will clear up as we get on into summer and fall:

@SBC....I'm still here, and glad that you'll be coming too. Nice to have a quiet neighbor 170 miles down the road. Welcome to Colorado.
