On this blogger site one can click on all pictures except for the header two times each time making them larger which is a feature I like because it gives you the ability to really look very close at all kinds of things not readily seen.

Lulu And I

UPDATE:
It needs to be said that the vegetables being grown here are completely organic.

Home alone Lulu needs to be fed a couple times a day along with two treats while Mom and Dad (I borrow that from Linda) are away for R&R. This is a good pooch and requires little and does not bug you.

Lulu has plenty to watch over. There are many vegetables being grown here all organic. Everything is sooo intense in color at times it doesn't look real especially the yellow squash.

I'll be back late this afternoon Lulu. I won't forget.

These pictures were taken this morning pretty early.

This Morning

No post about Costa Rica but here are some of the things I saw this morning. Most of these have been manipulated but it does look this green as there has been above average rains but not in the last few days.

Greenhorn Mountain. A few days ago I lived directly east of it 10-12 miles. Always the trains.  

Two pictures from the same spot with the ever present Spanish Peaks in the back round.


Two things here. Left of dead center if you click on the picture is a starting gate that is used for racing horses. This is a practice area as there is a jockey who lives here and racers here before them.

The other  is the water. With the moisture we've had you see water all over the place like this. Ranchers built small holding ponds but you never notice them because there has been no water to hold. They didn't do this because it was fun. They did it because it used to rain more than it does and they were trying to capture all they could. There is no building of these nowadays that that I see. 

 


I found these plums the other day walking. They're not quite ready but when they are I will get some for sure.  When I was a kid back in the cornfield a highlight was the wild fruits including mulberries. They were all over and plums found more along railroad tracks.

This looks more interesting in person than in this  picture.

My new place. I like it here. I can't believe how quite and peaceful it is. I have a great back yard and soon the spare bedroom will be parked in it's already made special place.

See You Long Time

Oh my! Even surprised myself at it being almost five months. In defense of not having a defense I will say that I was sick for a month after returning to Colorado at the end of March. Plain lost interest I guess. Not satisfied with picture results and have been completely caught up the last two months with a sale of property and a move to a new home. Stuff like that. Most of it is done except for a couple tasks of winterizing to be done. This is what I wrote at the other place -

One thing has struck me in the last couple months and that is so many people I meet have/are or are going to have significant changes in their lives. It may be by choice or not. Might not be for the better either but it's happening. More boomers than not like myself. Needs to be said as well that not as many but there are a good number who just wanna keep on working.

I asked Fred how long he'd been selling insurance. "Right at 42 years". Ever think about hanging it up? Fred responded with "I'll probably do it to the end". If that's what gets people off good on you.


I sold the small RV I had to a young lady who was educated, hard traveled just returning from Thailand. She was excited about life and understood the simple things can bring pleasure and great quality of life. Disappointed too after seeing what's out there and where we are at here.


My changes in the last two years have been by choice. The place I was living was sold and I moved to town. I never imagined this was going to be the place. In came together in a coincidental way - the way things happen to me including a time many years ago with some of the same players.


I am excited in the changes I made for myself. It is the beginning of a completely new and different chapter in my life. It feels good and am soooo fortunate to have what I have. Knowing a move was inevitable (plus it was faster than anticipated) I find that the criteria I wanted in my life was here - almost every bit of it and just didn't see it.


I hope to post more now. The move is over and just about settled in. One of criteria I had was to walk or bike whenever possible. Have been doing both quite a bit. Friday I actually had a purpose for pedaling and it was to deliver some the best ever sweet corn I picked up for the second time in Pueblo to some long time friends here in Walsenburg.  I went down.


Point being - - - - - WEAR GLOVES. If I hadn't had them on it would have been the emergency room for sure. It's not the first time gloves saved my butt. My hands are hurt the worst and I'm thinking two weeks anyway but it's fine damn day and I have a smile on my face.


I do have two posts on Costa Rica. I will get the one up soon. It's all been ready to go except for me I guess.

Thanks for stopping by.
