Hi Everyone!…quick update on our day. I’d like to start by thanking B for introducing me to his very handsome, very big grandson. B has always told us how big he his, and it’s true! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a person glow until this morning, until I saw B holding him. Sure started my day off on the right note.
Our first stop was at the Windy Saddle Cafe in Golden. What a find! It was bustling for sure, but still comfortable enough to sit and talk, and talk we did. This was an especially social day for everyone. We were all so engrossed in our conversation that we ended up spending a good bit of time there. Very wide ranging topics of conversation. I know in the coffee shop alone we touched on music, fishing, hiking, skiing, and whether it was thyme or tarragon in the scones. There was a lot of wisecracks and banter. This group has a really nice dynamic. Very natural. I was thinking at lunch that it seemed like a bunch of old friends getting together.
When we finally left the coffee shop, we found a puppy sitting in a chair on the sidewalk, needless to say with this group of dog lovers, we spent plenty of time discussing dogs, and petting the dog. Then in was in the cars for a quick jaunt up to Red Rocks. When we first arrived it was a bit chilly so we went straight to the Colorado Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It’s a work in progress, but has some very cool stuff. We spent a lot of time looking at the room full of guitars. One that we were particularly taken by, was an acoustic made out of the 2012 national Christmas tree. I’d encourage you to visit the museum again sometime soon, here is the link: http://cmhof.org
We then made our way up the hill to the Red Rocks Museum. Only real snafu of the day was they were working on the elevator. Everybody decided we should stay and take the stairs down which we did. Everyone did great on the stairs. Special hoozahs to these guys, they did great. Several reawakened memories later we took the stairs back up. By this time it was beautiful out, so we walked around the outside pavillion, talking about how lucky we are to live where we do.
Finally it was back in the car and back to Morrison for lunch. J had a great idea in taking us to Red Rocks Grill. First time there for most of us. Most certainly won’t be the last. Again, very social, with flowing conversation. Terrific seeing everyone engaged and having fun. I look forward to seeing everyone again soon!
