Throw Back Friday...

This is what happens when you don't wait a couple seconds before driving when the light turns green. I t-boned a red light runner in our spankin' new Mustang GT back in the day. I wait afore accelerating now!

European Architecture, 2

We've visited Amsterdam about 3 times. I consider it the Venice o' the North. You'll see why. Canals, olde buildings, ladies o' the evening in winders... It's all there.
A hotel we stayed at, the Golden Tulip.

The central train station.

A bar.

Street scene. Lots of young folks about.




Canals run throughout Amsterdam.

A cool drawbridge.

Ladies o' the evening.

European Architecture, 1

I took lots of pictures of buildings as we traveled thru Europe in the 80s and 90s. Here are a few of 'em. Looking thru this stuff makes me wanna get back there. SHE™ and I have been gone too long.












These pictures were taken in the Innsbruck and Vienna areas. More later!

Spring 2015 Campin' At The State Park

It's nice to have a state park 10 minutes from TEH CONDOH!



Teh WINDY cleans up good.


The critters are also enjoying the fine, warm weather.



Mt. Evans glowing in the background.


 Pikes Peak, about 40 miles in the distance.



This Radisson Hotel has a great view!

Many Colorady state parks have wifi.

Got some tire covers to protect the new feets.

Fun Onna Sunday Afternoon

Et some breakfast, and off to a big model railroading show. I just wish we had room somewhere in TEH CONDOH to put a railroad empire! I think I inherited grandpappy's love of all things TRAIN. We'd set up the Lionel stuff on visits to the grandparents and I had a Lionel empire for a while in Jr. High. Guess now we'll just have to ride the RTD light rail and the Californy Zephyr.

Here's our great Sunday in pictures!






 From outhouses precariously perched over a precipice, to autumn trees, waterfalls, narrow canyons, and factories, a big crowd which included a lot of kids really enjoyed the model RR empires and the tons of stuff for sale.




 After the model RR stuff, we tooks a Sunday Drive along the Peak To Peak Hwy just west o' DenBRRRRRR. Cool, crisp, thin air and vistas everywhere. The weather is warming, so we'll probably park the Windy at the state park this coming week.

Finished up the day watching Navigator of the Seas leaving Galveston on the live streaming webcam. Looks rainy theah.

Wintah, So Far...

 Wintah season started with no snew. Near the condoh, looking towards downtown and the Rockies.

Fleurs were still in bloom.

Yep, eventually the cold weather came. Didn't stop us from eatin' Papadeaux!


Al Roker, during his weather marathon, laffing at my rather long Twitter handle.

Looking towards the DenBRRRRR tech center from Cherry Creek State Park.

Ducks don't care if'n it's cold.

Steam rising off the reservoir on a chill morninging.

 Snew and gooses out behind teh condoh.

Colorady state capitol on a non-snewy day. The newly-restored gilt dome looks good.

Pikes Peak in the distance.

Beautiful red outcroppings in Colorady Springs.

Snew out behind teh condoh.
