Oh, Hail. Beautiful Devastation

Weather in Colorado can be unpredictable. When green tinged thunderclouds roll in, I cross my fingers we don't get hail. Yesterday, pea-sized hail grew to marble size in seconds. After the quick storm, I checked out the plants. Most of the flowers made it through. I let out a held breath. Eight miles away, golf... Continue Reading →

The Hunt Continues

In a recent post, Roxy, my fearless Bichon, attacked a hapless and humongous coyote and lived to perch on the back of my couch another day. How she got away with only four puncture wounds, we'll never know. She is all healed up and has become a house dog for the winter. This is not... Continue Reading →

What was she thinking?

We all can be impulsive from time to time. We don't think before speaking or can behave recklessly. I size up most situations, but sometimes it's difficult to anticipate the reactions to our actions. I'll never understand my dog, Roxy. She's a Bichon who is pint-sized at a whomping fifteen pounds of fur and energy.... Continue Reading →

As a rule, I avoid converging with other skiers, especially when the bottom of the run is congested. Black Friday Weekend shopping at the outlet centers became a divergent force which drew...

Get Ready Before It’s Too Late!

"Red sky at morning gives sailors first warning." This photo was taken today! A blustery Rocky Mountain wind pummeled our house all night and is still thrashing our trees causing their remaining leaves to tumble like autumnal rain. A change in the weather is coming. Meteorologists have been predicting this storm like salivating dogs staring... Continue Reading →

It Was A-Maizing!

My obsession with mazes began as a child. I remember trying to find my way through them on paper and having a difficult time. I've always been directionally challenged. When I discovered a great corn maze was located down the road from our house, my husband, Danny, and I had to go. They should call them,... Continue Reading →

Roxy and Squirrel and the Contest

Our dog Roxy has a friend. Squirrel hangs out in our oak trees or on the roof and waits for her to come out into the yard. He chirps and chatters and makes a ruckus. He acts like this is HIS yard.  Roxy knows better. A showdown occurs every day. I wouldn't mind except our petite... Continue Reading →
