Ummm, Bob? Haven't quite made it to mountains yet. They're still pounding nails...LOL! I think I might had made a tactical mistake, when I told the contractor, "To take his time and build it right."
He has done that! I swear, one could fire a cannon at this place and the cannon ball would bounce off! In complete contrast to the way my AZ home was built.
Meanwhile, my wife 'n I are still making that 650 mile one way trip, enjoying the scenery. As far as weather is concerned, it got cold up there last week. Real fire place weather! Not the type down here in the zone where it's mid-eighties, you have your door or window open and your neighbor's smoke is whiffing into your house from their wood burning fireplace!
Our yup neighbors are a trip. I don't doubt, for a second, they have their ac running while their fireplace is burning.
My wife 'n I have been in discussion as to when we should move our stuff to Colorado from Arizona. We decided to "Up our schedule", after the passing of my mother last June.
Yes...My mother and father were the last remaining responsibilities in Arizona, since I am an "Lonely-Only" in the family (I might had mentioned "remaining business in AZ" at one time). My father still carries a torch for her and displays an indifferent attitude towards life since her passing to this day. I guess 62 years of wedlock will do that to you. Still, in his own funny way, he is taking very good care of himself and is a capable man that stands on his own.
He sure informed me, several times, in no uncertain terms after her service that he is capable.
SO! Sounds like my wife 'n I are in the making to enjoy the new home and weather up there, in the immediate future, for a month or two and back to Arizona for a week or two...Then repeat. This way, I can see for myself he is still capable. As an added measure, we will hire a nursing agency to look in on him during our absents.
Meanwhile where are all the "Colorado Members" for Roll Call? We are almost, just about, somewhat, nearly, slightly short of officially there. It would be nice to know who is in the state of Colorado?
Bob! Goodguys! I have a couple of something to send you if you are 99.999% certain you'll beat a path to their front door on any of those three days.
Hate to see them go to waste, since they were sent to our now
defunct car club by mistake and I will be out of town on that weekend. Let me know...
