Thank you! It is only a matter of time before she falls in. She keeps stretching further and further, testing the waters. She’ll figure it out.

Hit 100 up here today. I'm guessing hotter down on the Strip.

Friends we play bridge with on Tuesdays were over today. Her nephew has just been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatitis cancer. 34 years old for God's sake. It just ain't right.

Out of state relatives visiting from the east coast. Nephews wife pointing at the San Juan mountain range south of me, "I wanna go there".

Heheheh...ok. It will take a while to get her claw marks off my Jeeps dashboard. I think she may have passed out once at 11,000 feet. She never heard of a "shelf road" until today. Vowed never to go on one again. And "where are the guard rails?"

Gosh, that was fun.

One of my brothers used to live 25 miles west of Denver on a mountaintop outside of Conifer. He would take us for "tours" and drive little narrow "roads" that his GMC barely fit on. Everyone knew that when his wife got out of the car it was time to be nervous because she was watching the downhill wheels to make sure they stayed on the road.

Default "Back-in-the-Day"...going over OLD LOVELAND PASS (11,990') pulling 4-horse trailer on snow covered Ice

Your post reminded me of going over Loveland Pass many elk seasons (11,990') pulling a 4-horse , Hale stock trailer, loaded w/ 2 horses, and ALL the hay and feed and other related items for a 12 day Elk hunt WAY BACK up in the White River N.F. ,N/W of Glenwood springs, near the Dunkley Flat Tops.....A tent-camp "with all the comforts
Remember now we are talking 1965,thru 1970.

, driving a 1963 Chevy fleetside pick up that i bought a few months earlier ar the annual Colorado Fish and Game dept vehicle auction.....163,000 miles on the odometer, 4 speed and 4wd, 456:1 rear end w/ a 283 V8.

When it was pretty bad driving conditions, we'd be chained up on all 4.......plus we'd have chains on the wheels of the braking axel on the horse trailer so we could apply those before we would apply the brakes on the truck!!!!don't forget, this is just an old 2-lane highway pass in those days!!!
Great fun back in those days.........particularly when we'd come out 7 or 8 days later with 2 nice 6x6s!

Been a quiet week here for us. I've had a pinched nerve in my hip that has been bothering me, but feeling better today. Got the landscaping in our front yard done. Now we just need some rain; going to be sunny and very warm for the next few days.

Going over to some friends to play Rummikub tomorrow afternoon. So much for our exciting life.

Rummikub! Never played until we moved her. Great mental exercise. Excellent game.

Love Rummikub! Taught my daughters to play when they were very young and they still love to play to this day. My daughter (a teacher) taught her 3rd/4th grade class to play and it is the number one game they all ask for now.
