Stella standing guard on some GATOR.

Tree removed

Had to cut a pinyon pine because the snow had made it lean over the cabin and electric service. SUCKS!

Jay found a 5 point deer today.

Stella helped  too.


We found a small fire burning yesterday.  Called 911 and waited around for well over a hour and still no fire fighters. Thank God it was in a burn area that also had a slow response time.

Finally over a 1/2" of rain.
And kinda cold. Love it!

Elk Rub Fest

Last years, but love to see them.
I wonder if the forest service is thinking of removing the elk if they keep this up?

Road to serenity

Slow quite drive ...

Stayin' sober

Just sitting in front of the library waiting to see if anyone needs a meeting. I could always use one. Most everyone is at the parade so we may leave here at 12:15 that means I may leave here with the same attitude I came with... poor Jay

The parade and fireworks

I have made a decision to stay with in my fence to keep everybody safe. That is the least I can do for my community.

July 4 2006

Lets see how this went down, yep kinda trashy. July 4th, midnight, Vegas, drive-thu, drivin' a " pigtruck", Elvis looking at the flatbed on our truck in my mirror, and we didn't pay for "the Elvis package". We laughed though the whole thing. then back to the casino for more gambling, best $40.00 I ever spent. And I tried to get a payment plan. nope, Cash money !
That was six years ago, I am more in love today than I was that night. The best part is we never stopped laughing and it keeps getting better.
and that little dog too!

Storm coming...

There's thunder in the distance, but blue skies here. I feel like a scary movie is going to start...

Overgaard fireworks

I'm hoping for more rain,  I believe the fireworks are going to go on if we get more rain or not. The forecast looks good thank god. I would hate to see this mountain burn again. After watching the last couple of weeks of news watching the homes burn in Colorado Springs, I would think  the decision would be made over rainfall not money. At least this year we do not have firefighters fighting fires that started as controlled burns one or two days before 40 to 60 mile per hour winds were predicted. Maybe the forest service is watching the weather before they start a controlled burn this year. Sorry no pictures just an opinion. Happy Fourth of July!

Too many electronics

Will I ever eat again?  I'm so hungry and Jay is only on the second electronic out of the five within her reach. And no fast food in this town. Even the Yorkie is dying.

Alcoholics Anonymous

This is Captain John Morgan.
Yes "Captain  Morgan " my A A sponsor for 18 years 11 months.
He died on Jan 10  2011. I could never  thank thank him enough for everything he taught me and all of the laughs we had. He died with 45 years sober, and one hell of story.
Thanks again John, you are so missed!

Half of a flower...

This little yellow flower is half open this morning. It's so pretty. I was given a gift this week, a gift of acceptance and forgiveness. The funny thing is it was there all along I just never took it. Life is funny that way.
