We are home from Colorado since last night around 10:00 pm. According to the GPS when we left Monument, we should have been home around 8:00, but we stopped by Wayne and Ruth’s (brother & sister-in-law near Junction City). It was a good visit to top off the drive.
It was an easy trip. We remarked it felt like we had a tail wind the way little red car sailed. I texted Doug mentioning the good trip & he said it was a windy day in the Springs, blowing from the west. Ahhh, it was a tail wind. Also, the regular gas in Colorado is mixed differently because of the altitude so Dan put in a higher grade. Red car liked that a lot.
Today we attended the funeral of a long-time co-worker’s dad. He was a WWII veteran with a beautiful graveside recognition.
Then I dumped all the gloves we have in the house out on the kitchen floor. Work gloves, mechanic gloves, garden gloves, dress gloves, ski gloves…. I am throwing away those without mates and with holes. Now, when we need a pair, there should not be a problem finding the right type. Reality is, gloves are like socks.
Even though all gloves are in order, there is one more day to make sure all business for 2011 is complete. I have a pile of papers to be filed and somewhere in there I think I remember something that needs to be done by December 31st. Why didn’t I tackle the pile of papers instead of gloves? This post should have been entitled, “2011 last day, no more procrastination.”
