The speed at which he makes drinks is 'lightning fast'. It's like "Quick Draw Magraw" with a bottle and a slice of lime. I haven't seen him move so fast since his last 'lap dance' went bad.
So next time you're in Grand Lake, stop into P & L's and have a margarita from "FLASH KING"! Just don't blink your eyes or you might miss it.

Skip's annual St. Valentine's Day Massacre pool tournament is today at noon at the Lariat. This year's trophies are great as usual! It's limited to people who don't shoot much pool and started years ago from a challenge by the band(Walter, Scotty and me) to Barky Lew and has grown into a fun afternoon on an otherwise dreary February day. I'll try and get pictures and do more blogging later.

A little bird told me that "The Brothers Foot" book is getting closer to being available. It should probably be out sometime in March. If you go to the web site and look under related sites, you'll find ronnie roo's nothernfront site and the Authorhouse site which gives some more details.
On the Authorhouse site, just type in The Brothers Foot at the top of the page under Title, hit search and it will give you more details. Also if you click on the picture of the cover, it will give even more info on the book. Check it out!

Just a reminder of what might be waiting underneath all that snow!
Tuesday, February 17, 2009
Snow is a good thing most of the time. We need it for the skiers and snowmobilers that help our Winter economy. We need it for the snow pack that fills the reservoirs and puts moisture in the ground, but sometimes it gets in the way. For instance, when one wants to go down to Denver for a day or two and the wind and snow make driving difficult and sometimes dangerous. When high winds or an avalanche close the pass and spoil your travel plans. It's all part of the joys of living up here at 8369. The weather can be beautiful in the Winter but it always seems that the few times I want to get down to the 'flat lands', it decides to snow and blow. Of course this weekend, when I have to work, it will probably be nice and the roads will be clear and dry. Oh well, maybe next time I'll get lucky.

I hope the snowplow driver's don't have big plans for Valentine's Day! When it rains hard, they say it's raining like cats and dogs. So when it snows hard, is it snowing like penguins and polar bears? Right now it is coming down heavy and if this keeps up it might be very interesting getting to work tonight in my little Ford Focus. This picture doesn't quite capture the intensity of snow that's falling but I bet Karla Booth is out there with her camera capturing the flakes as they make their way to earth. This looks like one of those storms that could really dump and I hope it doesn't screw up people's Valentine's festivities. Up here the snow is always welcome but personally, I'd rather be somewhere with a beach!

Winter Carnival was this past weekend and a big success! There were events such as 'teapot curling', human bowling, flag football in the snow, a parade, the crowning of a King and Queen and of course, the bed races. This years theme was pirates of the Caribbean and nobody better to participate than our own "Grand Lake Pirates". They are all good friends who have been coming to GL for years and have always supported me and my music. They really got into the spirit of Winter Carnival and Jeff and Kim(who live here full time now) were even crowned King and Queen for 2009. Thanks to everyone who helped out this year and made this year's festivities a great time! And thanks to "Mrs. P" for understanding that I didn't want to dress up as Sylvester the Cat again and lead the parade while freezing my fingers off as I play 'When The Saints Go Marching In" on the banjo. 6 years was quite enough.

The last time I saw John Prine, he was wearing a black suit(like Johnny Cash) and seemed to be considerably larger than the last time I had seen him in concert. Of course, he sounded better than ever and seemed to be at peace and enjoying life! (me too!)
So maybe it's time to think about a change....either start doing a bunch of crunches and sit-ups or take the easy road and wear a big black suit and 'get a real big guitar'!!!
