No cops around this time – Thank God!

We woke up in Torrey and mingled with the travelers. It turns out this little secret is getting out to everyone but the locals. We chatted with some folks that came in from New York to visit Hell’s Backbone Grill, and a couple from Colorado that were doing the red rock tour. Snow was … [Read more...]

I wish I filmed that…

Wow! I’m sitting to blog about the last couple of days and I can’t remember where I was.

Getting back in the saddle

So, two holidays down and one more to go. I sit here in Phoenix, Arizona (eating the best darn avocados) dusting my brain and still playing the one-handed typist game. But the sun is shining!  I'm told it's -4 degrees in Anchorage and there are no words - only a smile. I will be in Phoenix a couple … [Read more...]
