Spare me

January 22, 2020

Five things I’d rather do than listen/look at liars Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler on TV. Have a prostate biopsy daily for a week. Undergo a root canal without anesthesia Get hit in the head with a baseball bat Pick up 30 piles of dog doo in the backyard Watch Nancy Pelosi say that this […]



December 28, 2019

The odds are increasing that this fella is going to be questioned again. A grand jury will surely be convened and he’ll be asked again if he believed the information in The Clinton paid for, bogus, Steele dossier was verified when he said so to the FISA court. Since he lied under oath in previous […]


Love that Sally

December 24, 2019

A very young cowboy is very grateful for Sally…and to Sally. How many wives would let a hubby go fly fishing on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day? Yeppers…I knew she was a keeper when I first laid eyes on her. And to think, she even outfitted me for the best chance to be successful. You […]



December 17, 2019

Ok…we’re sorry. I know it sounds a bit shallow now after the fact. It is safe to say we got carried away. It was the first time we’d ever been asked to look after a poodle and, truth be told, Harriet didn’t seem to mind. We’d seen a show where poodle owners groomed their dogs […]


Oh my!

December 17, 2019

We watched a special program on tv tonight that highlighted memorable short documentaries on sports and other unique activities. Most memorable was an ice fishing contest in Minnesota. The temperature on the ice was -26 degrees. One fifty something angler had been competing for 25 years in a row. There was a significant amount of […]

What a story! On the 7th. anniversary of The Sandy Hook school shootings, The Newtown Nighthawks football team brought a bit of cheer to this deserving community. Playing in the State Championship football game, quarterback Jack Street threw a 36 yard Hail Mary pass as time ran out and it was perfection. Riley Ward caught […]


Ron Rossi

Randy Kreft invited a very young cowboy to go see last night’s Regis vs. Holy Family girls basketball game. What a treat!  The teams were excellent with both squads ranked in the top five in state for their divisions. I especially was excited to attend to see an old teammate coach the Holy Family team. […]


Heaven sent

November 29, 2019

Ok…so this has to be one of the best stories of the year. Adrianna Edwards works as a waitress at a Denny’s in Galveston, Texas. She walked four hours to work each day and four hours to get home. A couple she waited on this week heard about her plight and decided to take action. […]


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 […]



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 […]



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. In the book, she cites the attachment we have to our devices and suggests this addiction can be harmful as much as helpful. It […]


Australian humor

October 23, 2019

The late, great, Charles Krauthammer possessed an intellect admired by people worldwide. I’m learning he also had a terrific sense of humor. In the book entitled The Point of It All, he has a chapter called Why I Love Australia. Here are the first two paragraphs… ’In the Australian House of Representatives last month, opposition […]


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, […]



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 […]
