I just happened to look out the window last night (Sunday, July 15, 2018) at the right time and saw the Moon and Venus hanging out together.
I can’t eat solid foods right now, but after the operation I’m going to check out Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. Or go to Texas. One of those two. Maybe both.
I came across quite a few bald eagles in Canada and Alaska, but didn’t know we had them right next door here in Colorado. I knew construction on this project had been held up for at least two years, and now I know why.
If you’re into rodeos, I’ve heard about the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo every year since I moved to Colorado, but I haven’t been there yet. The dates for 2018 are July 20-29.

When I first moved to Colorado I used to read the Denver Post, but for at least the last year I’ve read constant stories about reporting staff being gutted down to a bare-bones skeleton crew.

A really nice man named Ben who worked at the Walmart in Broomfield, Colorado passed away recently. We talked a lot and he told me many good stories over the last few years, including this one.
I don’t take too many photos of traffic intersections, but this is a favorite view of Boulder, Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. In this image I am on South Boulder Road, with the city of Boulder directly ahead.
