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 […]

Krygios…the pampered one

August 8, 2019

Yonex, the racquet sponsor of Nick Kyrgios, has introduced a controversial contract clause that entitles the manufacturer to strip a chunk out of their clients’ retainer for every racquet smashed. Methinks Nick has not received the message after destroying so many racquets recently in Washington D.C., that his all too accommodating father had to ship […]

Hi Kelly,   Just a music morsel for you, this morning.

Tone deaf

July 19, 2019

Anyone want to play ‘name that tune’? If so, here ya go…’Ba Ba Ba Baaaaa….Ba Ba Ba Baaaa….Walking out the front door….Ba Ba Ba Baaaaa….Ain’t he something….Wooooo!’ If you know this song, you’re far better than I am. It happens to be what a guy was singing with his headphones on today while working out. […]

The Champ

Doron Coldwell competed bravely against a formidable foe…Hodgkins Lymphoma. I think you’ll enjoy the celebration of the announcement that Doron is in remission. What a story! Just scroll and click on the red arrow.

Is your teenager really ok?

July 16, 2019

A not not so young cowboy viewed ‘First Day’ on ESPN tonight. It is the story of former NBA star Chris Herren who was once counted as dead for thirty seconds due to a drug overdose. It was the most impactful presentation I’ve ever seen. He now is recovering from addiction and speaks to students…he grabs […]

Javohn Garbutt

July 15, 2019

A very young cowboy received this note from Angler’s All about a neat family in need. Thomas “Scully” Garbutt is a legendary fishing guide from Punta Gorda, Belize. On June 25, Scully’s youngest son, Javohn, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. When the happy and energetic 8-year-old began feeling sick, his parents drove him from […]

Bravo

July 15, 2019

The club where I work out is embarking on a new program that may cause millennials to cancel their membership. Beginning Monday, July 22nd., they’re starting ‘device free Mondays’ in the hope that if folks start the week working out minus their cell phones, that it could carry over into the rest of the week […]

Really?

June 30, 2019

The temperature was well into the nineties today so my bride and I delayed our walk for 7:30 p.m. A not so young man grabbed a fleece thinking it would be a comfortable choice. Midway in our walk, I was sweating uncomfortably and asked Sally if it might be ok to complete the walk with […]

Movie Time

June 30, 2019

We enjoyed the preview of ‘Yesterday’….the movie that features the music of The Beatles. The show did not disappoint and I can recommend it if you’re a Beatles fan. It is a very unlikely story but a very nice ninety minute getaway.

Say it ain’t so

June 21, 2019

A young cowboy learned today that actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband have a very unique marriage. They share a home four days a week and go their separate ways for three days. I guess the guiding principle is that absence makes the heart grow fonder. I mentioned the arrangement to Sally thinking she’d view […]

Clueless in Centennial

June 14, 2019

On Monday night, a very tired cowboy was suddenly and rudely awakened at 11:30 p.m. by an F – 15 fighter jet that roared over the tree tops in our normally quiet cul de sac. The noise was deafening as the house felt like it was shaking. As I tried to compose myself, the question […]

Ridiculous

June 7, 2019

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. […]

No problem

May 29, 2019

It was Memorial Day at Meadow Hills Golf Club. The very young lady pictured here had a nasty, buried lie in the rough and forty five yards from the pin. She gave the ball a mighty thump with her seldom used sand wedge and, remarkably, the ball came out and headed to the left edge […]

Great read

May 22, 2019

My wife and I were discussing our favorite books after dinner tonight. I asked her to name the best written book she has read in the last three years. Without hesitation, she said ‘Where The Crawdads Sing.’ It’s now on my list too.
