Yesterday a friend told me about The Tank in Rangely, Colorado.
Louisville, Colorado’s Blue Parrot property has been purchased by investors based in Superior. Here’s the story on DailyCamera.com, a source of news for Boulder and Broomfield counties here in Colorado.
Started the drive at 5:50 EST Tuesday in Kentucky. Waited out the morning’s snowstorm with some old-timers and truckers at a McD’s in Georgetown, Indiana. Maneuvered through the snow and ice induced wrecks between Corydon and Evansville. Wanted to kiss the ground when it finally got dry after 11am. Drove through the sunset in Kansas, then followed the truckers, Moon, and stars across the rest of Kansas and Colorado, arrived “home” at 12:20am MST Wednesday. Looking forward to seeing if the mountains are white whenever I wake up.
This photo from January 12, 2012 of the Rocky Mountains behind Boulder, Colorado made me feel like I was living on the Moon.
Here’s a great view of the Rocky Mountains and part of Boulder, Colorado, from my apartment on December 21, 2013.
(As a not-too-subtle plug for my book, that great view was paid for by my consulting career.)

Kroger clerk: Can I help you sir? You look lost.
Me: Good morning. Yes, my aunt has terminal cancer and would like some marijuana. I was wondering where you keep it?
Clerk: Um ...
Me: I thought the raw product might be in Produce, but I didn’t see it there. I’d prefer organic if you have it.
Clerk: Um ...
Me: Then I didn’t know if the edibles would be in the Candy aisle, or maybe by the ibuprofen.
Clerk: Um, sir, we don’t sell marijuana here.
Me: OMG, why not? You could put it on the same aisle as the munchies, and revenue would go up immediately! Do you have a suggestion box? Or maybe I should talk to the store manager ...
(Note: The Kroger stores in Colorado are called King Soopers, but I figure that most people know the Kroger franchise, so I used that name here.)
If you live in Colorado, you’re doing laundry at someone's house in Kentucky, and you lose a sock in the dryer, where does it go?
