Pausing to remember the men and women that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country and our freedom. Perhaps this is a great day to plant a red carnation in your garden, or take some flowers to a nearby cemetery to place on the grave of a fallen soldier. God Bless America and all members of our military!

Thought this morning I would share some cow pictures that were taken several weeks ago, during the time of one of the Spring snows. I love cows!! Actually, I love all farm animals....well, all animals, I suppose!! Country drives, and talking to the cows, are way up there on my priority list for happiness!! Now about those Nuggets.....just waiting to see if it is the Lakers or the Rockets that the Denver Nuggets will face off with in the finals of the Western Conference. Go Rockets!! Beat those Lakers!!! Enjoy the cow pics!!

Well, Mother's Day 2009 has come and gone, and game 3 in the NBA playoffs between the Denver Nuggets and the Dallas Mavericks has come and gone....and now there's game 4 tonight!! We'll see if the Nuggets can finish off the series, or if they will chose to finalize things here at home in game 5. I have a feeling they would just as soon finish this series off tonight....... I hope that everyone, moms and not moms, had a great day yesterday on Mother's Day! It was a less than perfect weather day here in the foothills of the Rockies......and as we drove up on I-70, the snow began, and the temps in the upper 40's dropped to as low as 34!! I had requested to eat breakfast at one of my favorite spots ~~ The Happy Cooker in Georgetown, CO. From there we headed on up toward the Divide, with the weather worsening as we climbed in elevation. I wanted to go to Leadville, and stop at The Ugly Cookie Company for cookies and coffee! Well, wouldn't you know......no ugly cookies on Mother's Day!! Closed for repairs. So I had to settle for pie and coffee at Jan's in Buena Vista!! Before reaching Buena Vista, the temps rose to 68, the sun was out fully, with only a minimal amount of clouds in the sky. It was gorgeous!! But......once again we entered the clouds, literally driving in the clouds, before returning home. I hope you will enjoy the snow pics!!

Go nuggets..beat the mavs..defense...defense..go nuggets..........and the beat goes on!! Game three is this afternoon, and I can't wait!!! The first two games were enough to send anyone into a frenzy, and I can't imagine now that the location has moved to Dallas that things will be any different. Birdman was a good match for Dirk Nowitzki here in the altitude...and we can only hope that the "groove" will continue down in the flatlands!! Being a former Texas resident, and big fan of the Spurs and the Mavericks....this is a difficult one for me....well, no....GO NUGGETS!!! BEAT THE MAVS!!! MAKE IT A FOUR GAME SERIES!!!! YES!! YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!! (Thanks to ESPN for the photo.) There are some great videos on U Tube, if you care to watch Birdman "fly to the nest"!!!
Spring has once again returned to the area! We have experienced a couple days in the low 80's here at 6,000 feet, although Denver has not officially hit 80. Then......changes.....as always!! Yesterday was only in the 60's, and this morning was 38 when I arose, and currently barely 50. But....after having to remove my bird feeders from my FRONT yard by order of the HOA....the finches have found my backyard feeders!! YES!!! They are back!! I've pledged to making improvements in our back yard this season, planting a veggie garden, and several roses and other bushes...to provide food for the bunnies (hhhhaaaaaa!!!) and bushes and flowers for the birds and the butterflies! Hope Spring has arrived for all of you!! (It snowed up above us last night.....) Enjoy the bird pic!!
