Ha ha ha! I love the idea of models strutting their stuff on the catwalks of Milan, Denver & Paris! Or, as no song ever says, “I’m too sexy for Denver, but I like the omelette…”

Yup, lack of time & money. Ain’t that the truth. When I read about museum ticket prices in Nee York, I was taken aback. Damn! That’s where Washington D.C. & its Smithsonian museums shine! Most of them are free! It’s brilliant! Except, of course, the time factor. We were there because Jeff had a conference — the kids & I were free to roam. That was 10 years ago. I’m not sure at 7 & 11 years of age they remember much. We haven’t been since & it’s too bad.

Out of curiosity, Jon, do you have something like a Groupon? It’s a coupon, usually for an activity, could be for one person or a bunch of people. The Groupon makes things cheaper, although there is still the matter of time to do things. I’ve always wanted to take up archery, for example, so I’m going to Groupon for that. But since I have no time, I still even have looked that up. 🤔

Denver, 40 years ago, was such a small, sleepy cowtown. Now the rush hour starts around 4 & ends around 7, & the highways rival Los Angeles in convenience. Boo… Thanks legalized marijuana & sunny weather! I would love to take some of y’alls rain & give you more arid, high desert days. Oh, to be an evil genius & create a weather machine!
