This week, we were urged to view as non biased four college professors as they dismissively voiced their liberal opinions on the justification for the impeachment charade. Thankfully, three of the four when questioned admitted they had donated to the campaigns of Obama, Clinton, and Warren. Do you smell what I smell? So boring was […]

Preparation

December 7, 2019

There are those delicious moments in time when a batter in baseball times the pitch perfectly, the ball hits the sweet spot, and the player takes off on a home run trot around the bases. The thought made a young cowboy think how far pitchers have come in the last fifty years to make sure […]

Gracefull Cafe

November 19, 2019

Sally and a very young cowboy took advantage of an offer from Ascent Flyfishing owners Peter and Jess Stitcher. They said there’s a really neat cafe in Littleton called The GraceFull Cafe and they had a volunteer day. We volunteered and were so impressed by the owners, their team, the concept…and oh yes, the food. […]

‘You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees a hundred miles in the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile, the world goes on. Meanwhile, […]

Who of us hasn’t run into a few days in our lives when feeling like we’ve been dealt a bad hand or the deck has been stacked against us? My great friend Wendy offered some sage advice this week…’just keep shuffling those cards until you get the hand you want.’ How simple…yet so profound. Like […]

An angel

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 […]

One great mom

August 8, 2019

We were in line last night at Sweet Tomatoes near The Park Meadows Mall in Lone Tree. Suddenly, there was a crash near the cash register as a seven year old’s plate hit the floor. I watched to see how the expectant mother would react. She passed with flying colors. There was no anger and […]

Dominic Thiem is in the semifinals of The French Open. He faces an extremely tough task to win the tournament. He plays Novak Djokovic today and, if he wins, would need to beat the 11 time champion Rafa Nadal. Win or lose, he’s had a great tournament and provided lots of excitement along the way. […]

Encouragement

We love watching the women’s college softball World Series each year. The enthusiasm of the players and their rabid fans is something to behold. Tonight, one of the announcers was talking about a hitter who was in an 0 for 26 slump. She said the player was ‘taking a long trip on the trouble train.’ […]
