I've had some people ask about how to purchase shirts and CDs for the 'Ribbons of Hope' fundraiser. The picture to the left shows what I have(click on it to see closer up). In men's I have L, XL and XXL in black or blue. In women's I have S,M and L in pink or blue crew necks and aqua v-necks with the logo embroidered on the front. In silk screen shirts with the logo on the front and the lyrics to the song on the back I have yellow tank tops and aqua v-necks, The price for a shirt and a CD is $20.00 plus $5.00 shipping with $11.00 going to the library. CDs only are $10.00 plus $3.00 shipping with all $10.00 going to the library.
So far I have been able to donate $2,000.00 to the Grand County Library District for Breast Cancer Resources. My goal is $3,000.00 so I'm well on my way. Thanks to everyone for helping with this worthy cause. If anyone is interested please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We can work out the details there. Thanks again to every one who has helped! Cormey

Somewhere in the middle of my second set, a group of young people invaded the place and took all the seats up front. They weren't there to hear me sing 'Never Summer' or 'Don't Pet The Dog'. They were there to view the opening ceremonies of the Olympic games.
It turns out that all these youngsters were children adopted from China (many from Beijing). It was a ten year anniversary and most of them were not much older than that. They all live in Colorado and they were in Grand Lake with their families to have a reunion and came in to enjoy the 'big screen TV'. I've been upstaged by television before...(usually a Bronco game) but this was certainly different and I didn't mind at all.
Everyone was very polite and even made a few requests for songs. I ended my show just a little early so all could enjoy the big show on the big screen! I thought it was pretty cool to see their eyes fixed on the the scenes from the place they were born but probably don't remember. They're just a bunch of kids from Colorado now but got a chance to see the ceremonies and all the fireworks like the rest of us. Still, I can't help but think they took it all in with just a little bit more interest.

Anyway, if you are right handed and holding a camera in your favorite hand and then you are forced to toss that pebble into the lake like a southpaw, no offense intended, but I threw it just "like a girl"! It's an embarrassing situation, situation just the same, and I looked to see if anyone noticed this awkward moment. Not a creature was stirring, not even a moose.
So I snuck back home and downloaded the picture on to my computer so I could upload it to all you good people who religiously read this blob. Well, the ripple and splash are captured forever in time. That's not 'Photoshop', that's real Colorado lake water and Colorado blue skies and a special mountain that keeps watch on all us critters below.
You know?, I don't know an upload from reload or a...but I have a good time sharing my thoughts and pictures of this old 'beetle infested paradise' with y'all. I wouldn't trade it for a soggy soft shell burrito from 'Polish and Lefty's'!

The tipi is open for summer visitors. Book your party or event now. We've already hosted a couple of parties and we're gearing up for Mary Jo's arrival tomorrow! We have stools, tables, lazy boys, plush carpeting, an adjustable fire pit (sorry Ron, there's no remote control yet), electricity and Internet! Since the addition of the fire liner, it's really quite comfortable even in the early morning cold. Mac and I provided live entertainment last week for the Iowa group and Lisa from Rhode Island gives it a four star rating for comfort. So, there should be a happening in the next week for certain. Check us out in Ron Wheelers " A Flatlander's Guide to the Rockies".
