A very young cowboy read a terrific book recently. An unlikely friendship develops when a young American girl writes a pen pal letter to a boy in Africa. Let’s just say it’s a bond that will undoubtedly last forever.

A not so young anymore cowboy learned a new word this week. Sarcopenia is the degenerative loss of skeletal muscle mass (0.5–1% loss per year after the age of 50), quality, and strength associated with aging. Sarcopenia is a component of the frailty syndrome. It is often a component of cachexia. I highly recommend the […]


Oh My!

November 4, 2018

A very young cowboy used to think that the male athletes to be considered possibles as The Greatest Athlete Ever include Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali, Lebron James, and Wilt Chamberlain. Well, after seeing the movie Free Solo (at Highlands Ranch), this list may come in behind Alex Honnold. You might not have heard of him […]

We went to see the new movie First Man last night. You know the story of Neil Armstrong taking the first steps on the moon in 1969. The movie is definitely worth seeing. An interesting aspect was the extremely dour personality of Armstrong. It was as if the smile factor had been deleted from his […]


One great book

February 4, 2018

A very young man read this book five years ago. If you are looking for a compelling story and a great read, give it a shot. It might encourage you to believe in the power of intuition…the little voice that whispers to step beyond your comfortable life and try something new.


Astonishing Lopez Lomong

February 21, 2017

A very young cowboy just finished one of the most inspirational books since Unbroken by Laura Hillebrand. Before you shy away from it thinking the story of a lost boy from Sudan is sad, just consider this. Lopez Lemong overcame astronomical odds to become a U.S. citizen, a college graduate, and an Olympian who carried […]

If you see one movie this holiday season, take my word and see Lion. It is one of the best films this youngster has seen in quite some time. Incredible story that grabs you from the start and never lets go.


One feisty lady

October 23, 2016

A very young cowboy saw this book a month ago while visiting Bar Harbor, Maine. I picked it up after returning to Denver and it was a terrific read. Juliana Buhring writes movingly about her quest to ride a bicycle around the world to set a Guiness World a Record. If you’d like a pick […]

Clinton Romesha is a warrior….my bad….WARRIOR! If your husband is a reader, he’ll undoubtedly love Red Platoon. The bravery displayed in the battle at Keating in Afghanistan was remarkable and the book is a terrific read.

Hail Caesar

February 7, 2016

It is a young man’s duty to save you $11.00 whenever possible. If you are considering the movie Hail Caesar with George Clooney, think again. It is pointless and a gross misuse of funds. A person could bowl two games or get a Larkburger, fries, and a coke for that amount. The fact that Clooney […]

This is the first book a youngster recommends. Laura Hillebrand is the author and the title is Unbroken. It is the story of Olympian Louis Zamperini and his indomitable spirit that helped him survive the torture of Japanese prison camps during World War II. You’ll love it and realize our trials are really small potatoes.
