Thanksgiving feast

November 28, 2019

We took a chance today based on a friend’s recommendation. Having no where else to go for Thanksgiving dinner, the wife and I rolled the dice and went to Culver’s on south Broadway. What a pleasant surprise. We sat at a community table for super seniors and had the best time. Some of the folks […]

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. […]

Oh My

November 17, 2019

The sketch creators for Saturday Night Live must be in heaven. I mean how easy it must be to create some laughter when Joe Biden is around. You know…when he looks intently into the camera and says something like….listen folks, this is The United States of America…there is nothing we are uncapable of doing. Excuse […]

Soul Brothers

November 13, 2019

‘Barack, what do you think of these front row seats that Hunter gave us for tonight?’ ’Amazing, my brother…he could have sold these and easily made $2,000. Maybe that’s just chump change for him.’ ‘Speaking of chumps, can you believe the media has not asked us one question about Hunter getting picked for this board […]

Lefty

November 8, 2019

The famous fly fisherman Lefty Kreh passed away this past year and what a life he lived. A very young cowboy ran across a video online showing Lefty and his ideas on casting. I’m paraphrasing here but at the end the clip, he said that the surroundings he fished in and the people he fished […]

Easy prey

October 30, 2019

Life lessons lie around every corner. Just the other night, a very young cowboy learned that you should arm yourself if reports of roaming raccoons have appeared in the neighborhood newsletter. Whilst attempting to replace the cover on the grill after dark…two of these angry, marauding, raccoons decided I was easy prey. You should have […]

Distraction

October 29, 2019

A very young cowboy picked up an interesting book yesterday at Koelbel library. The author is Tiffany Schlaen and the book is entitled 24/6…The Power of Unplugging One Day a Week.

Australian humor

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]
