Just A Little Off The Top

Tuesday, 19 May 2020 | Views [169]

Rocky Mountain High

Wednesday, 13 May 2020 | Views [201]

BLUE SKIES.  SEVENTY DEGREES.  CLEAR PINE-SCENTED AIR.  On a day like this Eldorado Mountain Open Space seems like the right place to channel our inner John Denver and maybe see a few birds.          ... Read more >

DESPITE THE DARK TIMES, THINGS ARE GOING surprisingly well for us.  The rates for both Covid-19 infections and deaths in Colorado are declining — which is not the case nationally.  "Stay-at-Home" has given way to "Safer-At-Home." ... Read more >

A Serpent in The Garden of the Gods

Tuesday, 28 Apr 2020 | Views [184]

It's Too Soon, Methinks *

Monday, 27 Apr 2020 | Views [164]

The Company You Keep

Friday, 24 Apr 2020 | Views [175]

THE COVID NUMBERS ARE CLIMBING, LOCALLY, NATIONALLY and Worldwide. I’m not especially anxious nor overly concerned but I do check the new cases on the web every morning.  The odds are still very much in our favor — fewer than three ... Read more >

Man Plans And God Laughs

Friday, 17 Apr 2020 | Views [161]

IN YIDDISH THEY SAY "MANN TRACT, UN GOTT LACHT."   Well She is certainly having a chuckle at the expense of all of us during this Covid pandemic.  It is sunny and 80°F on the Island of Hawaii where we planned to be .  Denver, where ... Read more >

Cowering in Colorado

Tuesday, 14 Apr 2020 | Views [155]

THE WINTERY WEATHER ON EASTER WEEKEND made “Cower-From-Covid” a little more palatable.  We did have to brave the cold Sunday morning and arrange for a new rental car.  Denver International Airport was deserted and I was pleasantly ... Read more >

Moving On Up

Colorado: Things Could Be Worse

Monday, 6 Apr 2020 | Views [151]

WE SHOULD BE TOASTING OUR BUNS IN HAWAII.  Instead we’re sitting on our butts in a hotel in Colorado where it snowed on Friday.  But things could be worse . . . and they probably will be before they get better.    ... Read more >

Socially Distant in Colorado

Friday, 3 Apr 2020 | Views [149]

Aloha, Hawaii

Tuesday, 22 Oct 2019 | Views [82]

OUR STATEROOM ON THE NOORDAM APPEARS to be an afterthought.  It’s about one-third smaller than a normal inside cabin and is oriented longitudinally.  I suppose we, too, are an afterthought.  The cruise began in Vancouver but we ... Read more >

Mad About Madison

Saturday, 19 Oct 2019 | Views [144]
