November 2010

Just a quick post in case anyone is still watching. I will try to spend some time posting something interesting.

We are healthy and well- working hard and enjoying it.

We are looking forward to seeing Erika and Jason this Thanksgiving. No Christmas holiday plans yet.

Bonita and Freida say "Hello". They enjoyed a visit in August from our friends Krystal and Chris and form Grandmaw and Grandpaw in early October.

Glenwood Springs Colorado

On Sunday Phil and I went to Glenwood Springs Colorado. Its about a 1.5 to 2 hour drive from Meeker. It is a must place to stop when you come to Colorado! There is a lot of history and, vapor caves and this hot springs pool. It is filled and heated by the natural hot springs water. Water is added to cool it and they do use chlorine, but it is filled with minerals. It is HUGE... and its hottest on the east end (the therapy pool) and cools as it gets deeper and flows west.

The old bath house is now a spa....

New phone number

Our new cell phone number is 970-270-1538

Please do not add this number to your texting list. Thanks!

Still here....still shoveling snow too...

Well, I need to get back to blogging...

Spring is here in Colorado, and it was in the 70's today but snow is coming again overnight. Seems like we have had snow each Tuesday for the past 3 weeks. But it melts fast so its not so bad.

I will get some new photos and catch everyone up.
