What have I been up to?


As some of you may or may not know I and my family have just returned from a vacation in Colorado. We journeyed across Kansas, through the horizontal hills of the great "bread basket of America", the wonderful smell of "cow money" (as I like to call it) and at last into the mysterious land of the Colorado. Side note: I only almost peed my pants once on the way out, but thanks to the Blue Hereford gas/ restaurant thingy I made it. whew! (Not that Pete wouldn't stop, it's just wasn't any place to stop) Our reunion was just fine, and I got to get caught up on some old childhood friends. The McGuires and, well, I guess just the McGuires.

We went over the Wet Mt. pass on a nice ride, and over Skyline Dr., and to the Prison Museum on Canon City (very fun actually), and to Red Canyon Park. Tons of pictures.

We than went to Parker to mooch off my sister and her family for a few days. They put out a good spread by the way. Went on a train thingy to Denver, walked around a little and ate at the Cheesecake Factory...yummo! Watched some silly movies and almost went to a writers meeting at a bookstore. :) Came home across Kansas again ( I like Kansas actually) and almost peed my pants again ( Blue Hereford saves the day once again) and when we came home the naked ladies were almost gone from our yard.

It was fun to catch up with you a bit. Your man Pete is a top notch guy!

Do you think you might go into a little more detail about the naked ladies? :) Or would you rather leave it a mystery and let people make up their own minds.

I refuse to explain the naked ladies to anyone.

I like Kansas too. Always carry a coffee can in the car just in case there is no gas station!
