I think so -- maybe we have just entered the Age of Senility!!

TRosa: I am getting confused as well and this is on top of my usual confused self.

I've already forgotten who is who; or is it whom is whom or who is whom or, or, or. To think there was a time before my seizures, my grammar or is it grammer, was close to, well um kinda, sorta, perfect. Those days are long gone. Well at least I'm still able to comprehend the language in its various forms. Just speak it very slowwwwwwly and into my good ear.

It's called humor for those that don't know in case some from other threads chance in here.
That WAS funny!!! Oh, sorry (need to turn to your good ear) -- T...hhh...aaa...tt
wwww...aaa...sss
v....ee....rrrr.....yyy
fff....uu.....nnnnnnnnn....yyyy!!!

Gee, I wish my boss was on vacation every week!! I guess I can actually have fun when I don't have a tyrant standing over me every day!!

Tesjae -- Thank G-d you are not changing your name!! And with good reason -- good for you and for the fur memory of your little loved ones.

Wow, it's hard to keep up here! I think we do need a meet-up to have some good hearty laughs together!! I can't wait!!

With all those name changes, we had to have some levity!

But you are right --- back to the topic at hand. Popcorn247 (I'm really glad you explained the 24/7 because I can remember the number that way!), I do hope you have a great trip. I'll be really interested in hearing your reactions to the west again.

My daughter and I traveled through New Mexico a few years ago and it was so peaceful. I did consider moving there (very seriously) but in the end could not afford to after the housing collapse. There is something very enchanting and peaceful about the desert, the warmth, and those clear, starry skies at night. I, too, wish I were going!!

And you get to see the Rocky Mountains!!! Oh, those are my favorites. So beautiful and peaceful. Take lots of photos and post some when you get back!!

I do hope you all know I was being a smart arse The Rockies are my favorites also - they are so big. And me, afraid of heights. This is why I'm moving there - I will conquer this.

I think part of our meet up could include a road trip. Afterall, we'll all be retired and will have nothing but time.

Some suggestions if you have time...

Have a blast, you are a bit early for popcorn season, but I have friends in Colorado who could fill up your semi-truck, or at least your trunk! I'm not sure how well supplied they are towards the end of the season. Farm fresh is always better

some of my favorite spots in Colorado are Independence Pass and Maroon Bells (near Aspen / Snow Mass), but CO was home for 25 yrs, so lots of places I like (lived near Estes Park). Garden of the Gods is great if you are in Colorado Springs.

For Wyoming, I like Encampment / Saratoga(free Hobo Pool) / Snowy Range (west of Laramie).
Vedauwoo (east of Laramie) Vedauwoo - Google Search

all time favorite place is ~ 5 miles west of Wolcott Jct on Hwy 14a between Dayton and Lovell. Powell is my kind of town (the locals bought their failed Mercantile as a Co-op, and it is now doing well). It is fun to hang around country stores in small towns.

While in Red Lodge, DO NOT miss Beartooth Highway into NE Yellowstone. It is rated as #1 scenic Highway in USA. Beartooth Highway
Wyoming
America's Byways®: National Scenic Byways Online

Of course, The Tetons are worth the drive. I like to be there for sunrise, so I often drive at night (Yellowstone traffic drives me nutty, nighttime is a good time to get through the park). I sleep in my car a few hrs (and hope I don't sleep through sunrise!!!). If you get a chance do a float trip from Jackson Lake Dam to Jackson Hole. You get to float under the bridge used in film "Spencer's Mountain" (that'll take you back a few yrs...1963..). Got to see lots of Moose and Elk kiddos last float through there.

Have a super fun time, I love road trips. I will admit TX was a stretch.
