Saga Of The Focus & The Hydrant (Part 2)

I found a door at a salvage yard in Denver and my friends Doug and Julie picked it up and brought it from 5280' to 8369' for me. It's silver but thanks to Randy's Auto Body in Granby, the silver door is on the red Focus and as Steinbeck would say...."Once again the world is spinning in greased grooves". Randy is Chuck Schmuck's nephew and I think he took special care to fit the silver door just right. Danny Schneller now says, when he sees me...."Hi Ho Silver Door...Away!!!"! I guess it's my turn in the 'barrel' until somebody else screws up! Larva says it is now Ohio State colors. Maybe I'll see if the salvage yard has a silver gas cap cover to match. Heck, who knows?, if the the little Focus hangs in another ten years, I might have a silver bullet!

Anybody Have A Door?

I've picked on others for doing stupid things here on the hill in Winter, so I guess I have to pick on myself this time. As I tried to back into the driveway last night I slid off into the 'new' fire hydrant that was installed last summer. I tried to "rock" the Focus out and smashed the passenger door up pretty good. Result....fire hydrant-1, Focus-0!!!!

Sunset At 8369'

It seems like everyday there is something here at 8369' to remind us why we live here. This was the sunset last night. Pretty dang cool!!!

Skinny Skiing At Adams Falls

It was a little difficult getting over the wall with my skis on but that was nothing compared to the ride down to the East Inlet!!
