Bruno Nydam

September 27, 2019

Who could have guessed when Kevin Nydam was a tennis player at Mesa State College, that he would graduate…turn to golf, and excel on the links as well. Today, he played nine holes at Highlands Ranch Golf Course. When questioned about his play, ‘well, I birdied the final four holes.’ When queried about the other […]

The Story of 9/11

September 20, 2019

A very young cowboy just finished an amazing book about the tragedy of 9/11. The author is Mitchell Zuckoff and the title is ‘Fall and Rise…The Story of 9/11.’ This book is not for the faint of heart but gives the reader a real up close account of the many heroes at The World Trade Center, […]

Joey

September 20, 2019

On a walk today with Luke and Joey, a kindly older lady asked if the cute dog with the skinny face was a deer. I was tempted to say ‘why, yes ma’am, it’s a rescue deer. We saved it from the clutches of a mountain lion near Telluride and he’s been the best pet ever.’ […]

An unsettling encounter

September 8, 2019

On my visit to the fitness club on Friday, emergency vehicles with lights flashing were parked near the entrance. It seems Bernie Schlagel and Helen Rabinowitz fainted simultaneously in the strength area and were being checked for concussions. Probing a bit more, I learned that they were both near a man doing a set on […]

An angel

September 3, 2019

In an empty sanctuary She began to play slowly…reverently Just her… her piano and…her God What she could not see was the aging gentleman kneeling in the shadows What a pity she didn’t know that her music soothed the man Transported him from trials and worries…and the stuff best left unworried about His eyes closed […]
