Sunglasses are Way Cool

September 16, 2023

The CU vs. CSU football game is about to start and ya gotta wonder why the CSU coach would “make it personal” by disrespecting Coach Prime. Here’s hoping CU romps 45-3 to put the Rams in their place. The consensus from nearly everyone I’ve spoken with is that Coach Prime might be the coolest character […]

A very gifted and hilarious tennis player shared this story with me on Friday. Her husband, a gourmet cook, slow cooked a brisket to wow his family. By her account, he did a wonderful job and the meal was delicious. In the middle of a bite, the cook exclaimed that he thought he’d lost a […]

A very young lady shared that she was in a spot of bother…that little annoyances were more upsetting than usual. It was, like most of us, a morning where low frustration tolerance rears its ugly head. A much older man…some have called a fossil, suggested a brief time out for music that heals and restores. […]


A bright forever

September 13, 2023

A young man not yet thirty was in the process of putting the pieces of a puzzling life back together. It had appeared to teammates that the pieces might never fit neatly in place…that his obsession with partying and substance abuse was a downward spiral like a toilet with a handle stuck in the flush […]

On this anniversary of 9/11, we remember the victims, their families and friends, and the gallant and selfless efforts of so many first responders. It makes me think of a term heard from golf telecasts from across the pond. When a golfer has a challenging shot from behind the trees, the announcer often says she […]

If you’ve watched The Loyola Ramblers men’s basketball team play in The March Madness tournament, you have seen the love they have for their biggest fan…Sister Jean. I picked up her book today at the library and her enthusiasm comes shining through on each page. Sister Jean is now 104 years and still works five […]


The Man

August 26, 2023

Lew Paper has written a terrific book about Don Larsen’s perfect game in the 1956 World Series. He writes a chapter on each player who played in that historic game between The Yankees and Dodgers. In the chapter on Jackie Robinson, he writes of the heroic character that stood tall against the rampant racism that […]

A not so young cowboy usually chases wild trout on Thursdays and yesterday was no exception. I arrived at 6:30 a.m. thankful that I missed colliding with a deer that put on a quick burst of speed before he received a facial from my windshield. After a successful morning, I traveled a couple of miles […]

Yesterday, on the one hour trip in the dark to the river, I thought about a man with a different trip about to take place. A song came on that I’ve heard many, many, times and it reminded me that…on that trip that we’ll all one day take, perhaps the plan has always been that […]

The Sudarium of Oviedo

August 16, 2023

The Sudarium of Oviedo is a small, blood stained, head cloth revered as a relic that details much of the sufferings of a Man who died of asphyxiation after having a cap of thorns thrust onto his scalp. The wounds on this cloth, when compared to those of The Shroud of Turin match precisely indicating […]

Be still, be grateful, and kind Let not this roller coaster like world hijack your mind Be generous, be courteous, and strong Savor the little things with the knowledge were not here for very long Live it up…slow it down but take not one day… one minute, or one breath for granted.      


Trout hunter

A not so young cowboy was stalking trout in 11 mile canyon this morning when he encountered a large Osprey doing the same. I have to think he made out better than I did…kind of like the one in this film clip. Just click on arrow and scroll to view.  


The end of a special era

August 7, 2023

Racquet World at Inverness opened in 1984 and was, arguably, the premier tennis club in Colorado. A much older cowboy took a drive by the club today upon hearing the news that it would be closing at the end of August. Kudos to Mr. Bob Gaiser who was the designer, owner, and driving force that […]

No worries

John was feeling a bit low after failing to break 100 again with his friends. They tried to console him but it took granddaughter Autumn’s hug to put things in perspective
