    2022-08-12 Truthtelling From the Middle of Nowhere

    In the last few days, I’ve driven about 8 hours to get where I’m currently sitting. I’m more, half-laying than sitting, propped up with pillows behind me in a bed in a 2.5-star hotel somewhere that’s really the middle of nowhere. It doesn’t matter where. The bed is in the middle of a room which […]

    2022-08-11 Denver Road Trip Day 1: Ogallala and Winning the Lottery

    Today I’m waking up in Ogallala, Nebraska. Mostly because I’ve gotten to that point in my life that I can no longer stand to drive the 8 hours it takes to get to Denver from Omaha in one shot. Does that make me old?  Probably.  Normally when I write about my travels, I start on […]

    2020-10-12 Deno’s Mountain Bistro Steak-burger 4.0 🍔

    What’s the criteria for a 4.5 on a 5 point scale? A well seasoned patty cooked to perfection (which translates to cooked as requested by the person ordering it). A toasted bun is a must. Don’t skimp on the cheese. (Or sauce If that’s part of the deal.) Other toppings as desired, also prepared according […]

    2020-10-11 Winter Park Getaway Day 2: Aclimation and Viewpoint

    I woke before the sun again today. 5AM I think. I’m afflicted with the inability to sleep.. in. I mean, I’ve been able to, in the early days of my life and in more recent years if I’ve taken something to help me sleep. But not now. And certainly not here, in a bed that […]

    2020-10-10 Winter Park Getaway Day 1: It Can Be Whatever You Want

    I’m waking up on my second day here in Winter Park Colorado— before the sun and with a fairly healthy headache. It might be a hangover, you know, because at this altitude it only takes a few cocktails to affect a person. Despite reminding each other numerous times last night, we still did not alter […]

    2020-10-09 Waking Up in Winter Park

    Yesterday was a loooonnnnng day. We did not get on the road until about 6PM as Jim had a full day of work in CB. They say Denver is a 7 hour drive from Omaha, but I believe that’s only possible if you 1) Have a serious fire behind you and 2) Aren’t afraid to […]

    2020-10-08 Miss SugarCookie is On the Move!

    I woke up this morning with more vigor than I’ve had in a while. And when breakfast was over I bounded toward my treadmill with a little more spring in my step. The primary reason for this energy comes from the fact that today I’m going to be getting in my car for a weekend […]

    2020-06-30 Take Back the City Tour: Day 15 Colorado Wrap Up

    We arrived home from our Colorado road trip late afternoon Sunday. It’s now Tuesday. That’s what happens. And.. if I don’t take the time To reflect reflected on our trip, it will start to slip away… At the very least, I’d like to capture the highlights so I don’t forget them. Pictures are worth a […]

    2019-06-25 The Colorado Wrap Up

    As I eluded to in my last post, it’s now three days after the day I was writing about and I’ve been home for several days. Life just moves too fast sometimes. On Sunday we woke to more snow falling and though it was beautiful, I was kinda over it and ready to get back […]

    2019-06-22 Colorado Day 4 – Snow on the First Day of Summer 😱

    Snow, for real!! Last night my friends and I stayed up late playing a card game and talking. It was a fairly rainy/stormy day, off and on, and as we sat by the picture window we could see the sky light up periodically with lightning. As we crossed over from the First Day of Summer […]
