A Mystery

Recently, I put a couple of frozen chicken breasts out to thaw in the kitchen. Much to my surprise, I discovered one by the front door.

How could this have happened, I wondered....

Christmas in Las Vegas

We had our tree decorating party on the snowiest day, when even the Strip was covered in white, and the schools were closed.

annual gathering. Wonderful fun!

Cowboy Christmas

Boots were found
and furniture tested.
There thousands of vendors of everything imaginable that had any western theme or use, and there were three convention halls full.

The Showgirl Must Go On

Bette Midler's wonderful production, "The Showgirl Must Go On", is in itself worthy of a trip to Las Vegas. We saw it on Friday evening with Terry and Mitzie, and we were all enthralled.

Peggy Sue's Birthday hike


On election day, and coincidentally Peggy Sue's actual birthday, a bunch of gals, dogs and Grant hiked up the Four Mile Trail at the Johnsondale Bridge.

Fall Color

We took a drive about 40 miles north to Quaking Aspen, near Ponderosa. The trees were in all their golden glory, the leaves dropping quickly as the afternoon breeze came through. Here's a slide show
