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.

The First Dust

Pictures from today showing what was left from night before last. It was 42 this morning but is still 80 at 6pm. Don't get much better and 18% humidity.

A couple things. If you live someplace where you can see when it snows on nearby mountains - eventually it will get cold and probably do the same thing where you live.

Only one shot of the Sangre's to the north and the rest the Spanish Peaks and the Culebra's to the west and south from them. The Culebra's are part of the Sangre de Christo range according to Wikipedia but you can bet the locals do not call the Sangre's.






What this is really about is that when the Folks would come visit around this time of year and if the dreaded four letter word that started with an "s" was mentioned or happened like the pictures show you would not believe how fast the Old Man could get outta Dodge and that's a fact.

On Taking Train Photos - Rule #1

Don't stand there and get hit. This was stopped so I felt real safe.

Man hit by steam train dies 

Having said that this guy needs to be more careful crossing what can be a couple busy streets here. Find myself being a bit lax sometimes. Maybe that's what happened to this poor fellow.

Day Tripping

Needed to have an adjustment and blasted up to Denver to see Doc. This morning there is a difference as there were issues plus complications from the bike crash a month ago tomorrow. Still several weeks away before it gets back close to normal. Chiropractics have helped me soooo much.

It was all pretty easy. Left early and drove the couple miles to the interstate. Get on it drive about 160 north take a right turn go about a dozen blocks or so and another right turn and you're there.

I have always liked the architecture along the south part of Denver. Many of these buildings are getting some years on them but still look quite modern.

After getting worked on stopped at a place close by that I came across last time and had me some Pad Thai. Pretty good.

Headed south after that and stopped and saw my neighbor friends from Costa Rica. Ken has this very cool small still.

They live in this funky kinda neighbor just off of downtown Colorado Springs in a old house with some pretty old fixtures still being used. 

Blasted outta there as stops needed to be made in Pueblo. Stopped at a hitch place to inquire about getting one installed on my Element. After doing a bit of checking theirs must be made out of silver.

Stopped and saw my brother who now lives close by in that area. Visited a bit and headed to my one of my meat markets of choice as I have been very disappointed with what I've bought here in Walsenburg. I don't care what anyone says the meat we buy in the States is not very good and as a general rule neither are the fruits and vegetables.

This is a busy place and has not been open that long. A Mexican Meat Market. You betcha.

You can buy meat here that actually has flavor and there is quite a selection. I stock up.

My other meat market of choice in Blende. They cut me very thin pork blade steak with bone in. Thick cut pork is not very good at all at least to me. I bought a pork shoulder steak the other day here and it may have been one of the worst pieces of pig I've ever had. Not the case here though. I did not stop here today. 

I continued out east of Blende to Vic Morrow's place and picked up some of the best sweet corn that can be had in these parts plus other things as well. Most of what you see is grown here.
Got done here and drove the 50 or so miles home. Eleven and a half hours or so and 345 miles the work for the day was over.

It was a good day trip with a lot getting accomplished. I will be eating real good the next week or so. It's the best time of the year for that.

Human What?

After years of using not all that cheap plastic 13 gal trash cans and having seen one of these Fly splurged and entered the upscale  world of where you put your house garbage. This along with special bags that can't be seen was supposed to cost right at a hundred. Amazon gave me 50 if I got a credit card from them so I did and it cost $49 and change. I'm busy not doing much and haven't cut up the card yet.

This is real nice and the lid don't slam shut. For 50 smacks you'd hope that anyway. It works very well. Plus - - - 
it looks real good in the new place.

I'll generally pick up a penny but three quarters laying in the road where I walk get jumped on. Plus the one the night before at the swings in the park.
Part of what's been going on in my little world these days.
