I live in Colorado and like to hike, ski, bike, camp, backpack, etc. I also practice the piano, guitar, and yoga. I'm a professor emeritus of Computer Science from Aims College.

School Story

Rick and I were walking down the hall that fateful November day when his girlfriend Linda came running up to us in tears and said the President had been shot. Rick and I were in a joking mood. It was Friday and the weekend was looming. Rick, without really looking at her, said in a wisecracking voice, "Yeah, and maybe the Vice President, too." Then life switched into slow motion. I saw Linda's crying face begin to distort and become an angry face. I saw her empty right hand open flat. I saw that hand begin to rise with ever gaining force and speed and smack Rick across his left check. Then she looked up in horror at her handy work and saw a perfect red impression of her hand on his face, which I'm certain remained there the rest of the day.

NANCY PLAYING THROUGH. FORE!
Yesterday we were playing 9 holes at the Estes Park Golf Course when the first tee was invaded by a herd of elk cows being watched over by a 12 point bull. Determined to play, Nancy lined up her shot though the elk hazard, between the bull and cows, past the pond where some were swimming, over the scat rough, onto the fairway for an opportunity at a close approach shot. We left the ball there and went on to the second tee.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

I know there are legal briefs, but are there illegal briefs and is it against the law to wear them?

Being a Senior

I've been getting the AARP magazine for a number of years. When it first arrived I was horrified that a large national organization thought of me as senior material, old. Now I read it religiously for it's upbeat views of us relics. We are in our golden years, not encumbered by work, traveling the world, living healthy lives, etc. All good stuff. However one factor seems to be overlooked issue after issue. That factor is the generous quantity of urine I produce and expel every day. Fortunately the EPA has not caught onto me. Here's how it plays out.

I have to pee when I:

Finish an activity.
Start a new activity.
Change from one activity to another.
Change locations – indoor to outdoor.
Change clothes.
Change channels on the television.
Change the oil in my car.
Change my mind.
Fill the bird bath.
Flush the toilet – this seems to be a Catch 22.
Put on my shoes.
Take off my shoes.
Roll over in bed.
Lie stationary.
Talk on the phone.
Go shopping.
Start ….. be right back ….. typing on the computer.
Etc.

Is this normal?

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY -

One of the first things to do in the morning is to take a belt. It will freshen your outlook on the day and hold up your pants.

Someone told me Flamenco dancing was a great aerobic exercise and would help with weight loss. So I gave it a whirl. The good news is I loss 15 pounds in three weeks. The bad news is it was an all men's class and each week one of us had to dance the ladies part.
