The Boy Dog loves the fact that I grew him carrots again this year. I harvested the seeds out of the flowering blossoms last year and grew some beautiful purple and traditional bugs bunny orange carrots this year.
Having a few, pre-dinner brews, holding my S&J huggie. Robert is toasting me with his 2107 F1 Australian Grand Prix huggie. Robert - PBR Me - Pinner
Wednesday night BBQ last week. Yet another time lapse was created that night and you could watch it here.
Maybe a few more beverages and conversations. Wide range of thoughts were shared over the 3 weeks together. Never a dull moment or joke to be cracked. Or even an unwanted fart to be blown.
Blood Road was a powerful documentary and I am so thankful that I caught its showing at the Avalon Theater. It just so happened that I found myself in a garage drinking with two vets from the mid 60's Vietnam era. The scenarios they painted were so bizarre for me to comprehend because they were both EIGHTEEN flipping years old.
This sunset photo was taken from on top of the Avalon Theater JUST after the completion of Blood Road. Rebecca Rusch set a local record out year about a year ago and I went into the movie ONLY knowing what I knew from the trailer. Seek Out This Documentary, please.
An Emergen-C before walking the Boy Dog. He was so funny that day. His little eyes squinted and his ears flipped back from my alcohol fueled breath breathing good morning greetings to him. He knew I was still intoxicated and he used every hair on his body to be patient with me. The Best Good Dog There
A horse and carriage just came rolling up 7th street the other night. Just your average summer of 2017 occasion. Nothing to see here....
My Fifth To Last Beer on Sunday. The way I saw it, should probably just consume the rest of the brew because I know I would have one Monday night IF it was there. So I took care of that situation and polished off the red wine so I wouldn't be tempted come Monday/Tuesday night.
So its still the Boy Dogs Birthday Month and another trail run is in the books. I'm two days sober and the Boy Dog is 15 days STOKED!!! He loves all the new treat boxes, the extra attention, just because car rides, and he is about to loose his puppy marbles because I am about to make up a batch of his favorite homemade biscuits. He supervises the SH*T out of me when he smells all those NATURAL & ORGANIC ingredients.
The gym treated me very well on Monday as a sub trainer taught Spintertainment in spin class. The video was from 3 major mountain passes in Europe that is used in the Tour de Giro. The views from this video was breath taking and caused me to spit out some crazy watts. Hung Over Crazy Watts. Rode 28 "miles" in the 50 min class with a max watt of 515 and an average wattage of 297 watts.
Before the class, Chest exercises, focused on form and happened to have weights that 10 reps were good enough. Before That, I stepped on the scale at 182.1 pounds. My race weight is 168 pounds. At the ends of June I was between 177 and 179. SO I am very surprised that I wasn't tipping into the 190's+!! I haven't lost much strength, just stamina. But very pleased with my weight and will be able to shed 5 pounds by the end of August no problem.
Today was a solid Back day and between clients and a meeting, passed on biceps to get the Boy Dog out and about. I'm thinking that I will hit shoulder and legs tomorrow and arms Thursday. Off on Friday and the Book It For Reading 5K on Saturday.
The Boy Dog is keeping me young, I so enjoy riding my bike, and what happened to July?? Halfway through August??? Lets start eating more fruit. Lets enjoy our veggies. Lets stretch like nobody is watching. Damn, Its Been A Great Summer!!! Damn Good Summer!
Friday, August 11, 2017
Happy Flippin Friday!! So many things to be grateful for after this week. But most of all, I am so thankful for the Boy Dog. Damn, He IS Awesome!!
The Boy Dog wakes up happy every day and receives belly ups before we leave the bed. He still eats with enthusiasm twice a day. He stretches before every adventure, no matter how short it might be. He turns into a puppy whenever I return.
I had a really good week back in the gym after missing a majority of it in July. I was able to work in every muscle group and I continued to stay in control of every rep. Picked up a little soreness in the chest and biceps but nothing major.
Beyond stoked with Mother Nature as we have been in a Monsoon pattern for about 3 months now. Sure, I don't dig the humidity but the verity of clouds rolling through has been such a turn on.
Riding my bike has always been a joy but this past week has been epic. I haven't pissed and moaned about the head wind BOTH ways. I haven't invested any energy when a rider crosses my path without a wave of a hello or any kind of acknowledgement. I have been simply enjoying the moment and riding a weeeeeeeeeee bit stronger.
And BBQ'n ....... Love It!! I have had the best time hanging out back with the Boy Dog and turning veggies, not over cooking any dead animals, and watching everyones eyes when I walk in with perfectly smoked meals. Again, nobody loves BBQ'd food like the Boy Dog.
There is something to be said about GREAT beer. I have been frequently shopping at College Liquors here in GJ because they have a walk in cooler full of single beers. This is a nice way to try a brew without dropping a chunk of changes. A few would have pissed me off if I had purchased a 6'r. I was beyond stoked to see that our local Hula Hoppie was on sale and has been my goto this week. When I am thirsty that is. Wish they sold THIS brew because its by far my favorite!!!
The Dude is hosting tonight and then its Radio Days down at Kannah Creek. A number of live bands and for me its a great place because I can't stand their beer. Its been crap and always has been. BUT... BUT ... They are such solid community supporters!! They support ALL kinds of local organizations here in the valley. Doesn't mean I will buy their specially brewed 300 Watt Ale but I look forward to seeing everyone.This is a yearly event and I haven't missed one yet. Even back in the day when they created the 16 Watt Ale. Now we are pushing 300 Watts at the station but the 300 Watt Ale TOTALLY blows. It always cracks me up to see the reactions when someone first sips that ale for the first time.
Having said that, its always a great day with fun people and loads of photos. That means that today will be a chest and legs day, tomorrow will be back and arms, and then Sunday will be a hike on the Grand Mesa with the Boy Dog after I drop the twins off at the airport.
SEEK THE BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME

The Twins: Lets just say we haven't been dehydrated this month. The Dude, The Twins, & I jetted around Colorado like rock stars. Home Base was in Gunny, day trips to CB, and meals out of the ice chest. Homemade Wraps
I so enjoyed driving up Cumberland Pass and it was a classic pulling up in the rental car. All the ATV's and 4x4 drivers looked at us like," You made it up in that???" The backseat was full of empty beer cans and we sooooo looked like tourist. It was awesome!! I pointed out a number of vistas along the climb and I always enjoy looking down valley, seeing rich full colored wild flowers, and spotting water cascading from little outcrops or natures cracks really gets my goat. Dig Colorado
The Art Fest in CB was highly entertaining. I chatted with an artist and it was pointed out that this festival is APPOINTED only. Meaning, you gotta be on your game to be allowed a venter spot. Crested Butte is a magical location
Radio Show: Hosted a World Beat show not too long ago and my next show is scheduled for the 22nd of August. Will update my thoughts and playlist soon.
Upcoming Goals: Healthy goals coming up!! After this week of booze - n - out!! The Twins fly out this Sunday. A BBQ tonight, Farmers Market/Movie Thursday, BBQ Friday, and Radio Days Saturday. Just might have a whiskey soaked liver by Sunday.
Enjoying the gym so far this week. Monday was Chest and Spin Class. We had a sub in spin and it just so happen to be one of the creators of Spin-er-tainment. Its well done movies of our local trails and formatted for spin classes. I didn't paint a very good picture here but its awesome and kicks my A$$ every time.
Tuesday was an all arms exercise day. I haven't pulled out my stat card and just using weights I felt were right at the time. Some of my reps hit 20 because the weight was a little light. What I did do was focused on the contraction for one solid second. I don't feel weak at all which was a surprise. I just feel toxic and out of shape.
Today will be a shoulder day and leg day. Again, loading up on the reps rather than the weight. Looking for proper form and full ROM. There is a spin class today but I just don't dig the Wednesday Instructor's Style. Its my own SH*T and I know That.
I can also say, looking forward to riding my bike. Looking forward to hiking with the Boy Dog. Looking forward to some upcoming concerts.
Thanx So Much For Watching My Videos,

Its the Boy Dog's Birthday Month and its such a difficult time for me. Sure, I enjoy the month of celebrations but rather emotional about his 13th trip around the sun with me. He appeared in my life at four months old and changed my life forever. He's Always #1
The twins are back again from Australia and were last here in 2015. Its always a gem having them around and I get a kick out of questioning them on their world travels. They average about 80,000 air miles a year and always upgrade double miles on their birthday.
The Dude & I took them up the mica mine trail and I found this little beauty calling my name. I have quite a collection from this summers travels. Shells from Lake Havasu, ocean rolled pebbles from the California coastline, and the smoothest sucker from the mountains of Colorado. Anyway, gorgeous day along the trail as Mother Nature produced some cloud cover and cooler temps for our high desert living. Gotta Like That
Hosted a sweet Global Groove show last Sunday and I was so into it. Started receiving phone calls during the last hour from people who were completely blown away. "Who Plays Turkish Music?" " Is This Lebanese?" " Where do you find this stuff?" were all some of the questions asked. Had A Gr8 Show
My next show will be hosting the Divided Sky on August 22nd at 9am my time. Will update as we near that date. Love Radio Shows
OK, July numbers on Strava were so lame that they are not worth mentioning. I spent two weeks in SD, an amazing wedding in Red Cliff Colorado, and now the twins are here. What I am saying is this," I am too much of a wussy to do anything hung over but crack another beer."
I' m not joking. I have spent a ridiculous amount of $$$$$ hard earned cash on booze during my birthday month and the twins are here until the 13th of August. Oh Phuc
BUT.... BUT.... Have had almost two solid weeks in the gym. During my first week back, felt relatively strong, I focused on the mechanics during each exercise. Not necessarily light weights but lighter weights and a full ROM. So my goal for the gym is to simply maintain a rhythm and control the weight during each rep.
I love riding my bikes. I can ride casually all day long. My goal for the bike is to gradually increase the milage after the twins head out. My vision will be riding a century during Labor Day Weekend on the midnight racer. Thats So Doable
Another goal will be to incorporate daily intentions and a more detailed blog from my trail runs. Again, I created this blog for me myself and Irene. HA. But this blog has sort of evolved along the way. Some old friends have discovered this blog and a number of really cool bloggers have been following and sometimes dropping a comment. I haven't reached 100 readers in one day but scored 92 hits. Without doing the math, pretty regularly see 60-69, I average about 55 hits per entry, post, update,etc. THATS AMAZING IN MY MODEL OF THE WORLD.
Having floated off there for a second ...... detailing feelings about that trail run, nutrition, mileage, upcoming events, and head space in general. I have even considered vlogging but I am not quite there yet and still unable to justify all the time that goes into editing for the "hits' "affirmations" "recognition" or even accolades. I do waste a lot of my time on 1 minutes and a few second time lapse videos that I have been "producing" for a few years now. But Vlogging interesting and relevant videos??? I don't know
I have a month now to hone in my visions, share my stories, and upload some sweet time lapse videos. Like This Kick A$$ Flight with 88 views. Its also odd to me that 88 strangers have watched my little insignificant moment in time. Crazy
Last But NOT Least >> Ortho - Bionomy << Ortho IS Everywhere

Buckled down and had a solid week in the gym. Strava put me at 36.4 miles for the week with a run tomorrow and a road ride Sunday. Took it way easy lifting but still felt like I was in control. Will lift again tomorrow night and take Sunday off from the weights.
Tomorrow night is the BIG crazy Demolition Derby at the fair grounds. Thats always a hoot!! Will do a BBQ at FJ's and might just have a few brews with the twins. Must Snap Photos For Perth
Last night, at KAFM's Radio Room, Moors & McCumber performed their last American show before they jet off to Ireland. The time lapse above turned out pretty well and has had a number of views. So Thats Cool
I am hosting The World Harmony Show Sunday the 30th of July at 9am Mountain Time Zone. Check out KAFM's Live Link HERE to stream and watch The Boy Dog on the web cam. Reggae On
Tomorrow will have an ugly early start. SH*T Fire. Heading up the Grand Mesa to volunteer during the Grand Mesa 100. This will help pay for next years entry. I am familiar with those trails already and am already looking forward to it. Obviously I won't be running the 100 miler but the 30K is so on my radar like a hummingbird zooms in on a red tip feeder.
Tooting my own horn without trying to sound creepy .... It was awesome walking back into the gym this week and having so many people ask, comment, or welcome me back in. I have always taken the time to listen to the Silver Sneakers so I kind of expected that from them but all the random folks that wanted to hear about whats up in my world really put a smile on my face. Sometimes we all forget about the impact that we (project??) during our daily routines.
So I encourage you to randomly say hello or compliment others throughout your weekend. No expectations, just offer a pleasant remark and carry on. Try It
Until The Next Time,

Hosting Bluegrass & Beyond today at 4pm Mountain Time Zone. Stoked to be air on as I will be recapping my summer adventures. So its a more of a Beyond than bluegrass. Well, Bluegrass with a lot of chatter and some Shel Silverstein mixed in. Its going to be epic
Speaking of adventures, traveling by air is rather a bitch these days. I flew a lot during the 90's and air travel just isn't the same. Oh Well
And flying, July has flown by!! And all the cocktails have caught up with me for sure. Way Fat & Lazy these days. Hell, Dennis and Rob from AUS land this Thursday so no rest for the liver anytime soon.
Spent my Birthday in Lake Havasu and pretty much haven't been to the gym all month. Weighed in yesterday and I was surprised to only be at 181.7 pounds. The drag was the 38 1/2 inches around my belly button. All that beer is just sitting here in my gut. Maybe I should switch to wine
Feeling lazy, DAMN YOU Pittbrownie!! Saw he signed up for the Lead King 25K and he will probably finish in under three hours, with a bum foot, sore back, and a cold brew in his hand. That guy is a machine and has a cool A$$ dog!! Check out his blog and new dog photos
So I have big or BIGGLY goals for the moth of August. May recorded 336 miles, June produced 367 miles, and 176.3 biking miles that month as well. July, an ugly 62 miles(23 on the spin bike Monday) and most of those miles were walking The Boy Dog. Ouch
Yesterday was a spin and an easy lift day. Posted 22.9 miles in 55 min on the bike and I didn't feel bad but didn't feel great. I definitely didn't have quick fiber firing muscles. Having said that, will be adding some serious miles on the bike from here on out. Realistically, trail running might not be in the cards until after the twins leave. And Thats OK
Anyway, this summer has been awesome, fulfilling, and rewarding for sure. I have enjoyed my own perspectives and look forward to spending a few weeks with the twins. Will be walking the Boy Dog on the No Excuse Loop nightly
Seek The Best Possible Outcome,

The Poor Boy Dog Doesn't Dig Fireworks. He tried out his new Thunder Vest during the weekend and I became rather hopeful because all seemed well with the neighborhood pops. Friday seemed smooth and I almost fell into an optimistic state. Saturday, not so much. The 4th, Sh*T Fire
Radio Show on Wednesday was pretty damn cool. I was asked to sub in on Puttin' Down The Roots and I was in total "wing it " mode. Turned out it was a Gr8 Show!! About every third song drummed up a phone call. That Rocks .... Hint Hint ... Mostly a B-Side Classic Rock Show
Next Stop Sunny San Diego!! Heading for the coastline town of Pacific Beach, fresh produce at the farmers market in OB, and a whole hell of a lot of nothing on tap. I have been reaching out to friends and will be meeting at the Coronado Brewery on the 12th of July. Cant Wait

Friday opened up with a little known band named Let Them Roar. Families began pouring into the festival grounds while these mountain folk taped into a soulful roots, rock, and raw improvisational jams. A perfect welcoming while attendees were looking for that sweet spot between the speakers.
This Festival is surrounded by well established cotton wood trees, beautifully well kept lawn for NO dust, and the Mighty Colorado River flowing by with easy eddy outs for a quick dip. Come and take advantage of this event next year.
The Sweet Lilies, Mayhem Gulch, and Lonesome Days shined like a whiskey-fueled campfire jams on a crisp summer evening in the Rocky Mountains. I chose to bail out during the Friday Headliner Shel and stroll on back to camp where pickers were already finding their groove.
Front Country ( KAFM Radio Room Performers ) opened up Saturday with a powerhouse set. The Dustbowl Revival quickly became everyones favorite. Dustbowl Revival played it all during their short 1 hour and 20 min set. They brought some New Orleans Funk, Pre-War Blues, and Heart Pounding Bluegrass while smashing the sounds of traditional american music.
The Travelin' McCourys were a show stopper and commanded respect. So Tight, So Damn Talented. Amazing story telling between songs with life long dedication to the power of bluegrass music. Then, The Jeff Austin Band came out and covered damn near all the Yonder Mountain String Band Tunes.
Don't get me wrong, they were good, but predictable. They were basically a warm up for the Phuc-N Fantastic Grateful Ball!! This one of a kind collaborated set features a boundless musical adventure through timeless music of the Grateful Dead.
Accompanied by the most perfect sunset ever!! My iPhone didn't quite capture the true moment in time but damn was it ever memorable. All of us were singing and taking photos in rhythm of Grateful Dead jams.
The festival grounds were packed full of all walks of life. Most of us were singing along with the band and the ONLY disappointment was the fact that the set ended at 9:05 PM. We all kind of looked at each other as if someone had pulled the plug during a Jimi Hendrix solo.
We all filtered out to the camp grounds wondering why such an early ending but the picking in the camp grounds were Bitchin' Camaro for sure. We played under a near Full Moon, we sipped off different top shelf beverages, and 2AM appeared rather quickly.
The Camping area emptied out Sunday Morning??? It was clear to me that everyone was there for the Grateful Ball. Most of those folks missed out on a brilliantly timed opening act by Harpeth Rising. WoW!! Building from the tonal depth of the cello layer in the shimmering sounds of the violin and the strikingly natural additions of the banjo to create a sound at once familiar and impossible to categorize.
Bloody Marys tasted smoother while Harpeth Rising made way for Parsonsfield. Another tight traditional and jubilant indie roots music. A few cover tunes rang out but mostly an original set of tunes that were obviously well played.
I was excited to finally see LiL Smokies at 3PM on Sunday and they brought the beats!! They have a very unique blend of bluegrass, new grass, exquisite musicianship, and unique originals. They new grassed an original, into a Supertramp, into a Prince tune, and then back into their original song.
So Keller and The Keels had a little snafu at the airport in Denver so some locals took the stage and we VERY well supported by us locals who were still in attendance. Hugh Phillips and Pete Langford from Avalanche String Band joined two others from Bluegrass Offenders Band to play traditional tunes while we waited for the arrival of Keller Williams.
Keller and The Keels didn't disappoint!!! Holy Sh*T Fire!!
The phenomenal instrumental technique of this group is complimented by the amazing range of vocal styles captivating and inspiring audiences of/for all ages. They rolled through an edgy rock tempo, a bluegrass vibe with a ton of notes, into a Keller original, and back into a rock format without missing a beat.
At one point, they started Breathe > Steppin Wolf's Wild Side > Paul Simon's Still Crazy After All These Years > Butt Hole Surfers Tune > Breathe. Super tight and never stopped between songs. Even when Keller was addressing the crowd, Jenny Keel fingered her Phat Bass, then into the next tune.
I am bias when it comes to Keller and Jam Bands but these guys stole the show from the whole weekend line up of talented musicians. I danced my A$$ off and will always remember Keller and The Keels opening up with Port-a-Pottie. Totally scripted for my weekend during the 9th Annual Palisade Bluegrass and Roots Festival. I haven't missed on yet and I can't wait for the BIG 10th Annual Party!!!
Tomorrow I start working at Country Jam. Oh Boy. Country Jam is in its 26th year and always has remarkable line ups. Its going to be HOT, like cooking eggs on a sidewalk hot, Townsquare pays me very well so I can't bitch to much. But feel free to wish me luck during triple digits fahrenheit.

The Grand Enduro Write Up On PinkBike And Killer Photos
Friday, June 2, 2017
I so thrive on watching 18-21 year olds blasting the ball out of the park!! These kids are amazingly talented and the weather has been perfect for baseball.
Little History of Former JUCO players that made it to the Big Show; Bryce Harper ( Nationals ), Trevor Rosenthal ( Cardinals ), Brandon Belt ( Giants ), Adam LaRoche ( Braves ), Curt Shilling ( Orioles ), and the ever so loved Kirby Puckett ( Twins ).
JUCO is held right here in my backyard every year and brings in folks from CA, TX, FL, AL, UT, MO and TN.
Just to name a few states. These games are beyond exciting and almost every game posts double digit final scores. A few mercy rules came into play. And these kids are so fast that Triples are not uncommon.
I grab a pass every year which makes it so much easier to come and go and catch some of the action. I passed on most of the high noon games to dodge the heat. Sat, Sun, and Monday of Memorial weekend offers 4 games a day. And you ARE allowed to bring in your own food, snacks and NON alcohol beverages. The Dude & I consumed a full bag of peanuts that he brought in.
Its a double elimination tournament so every team is guaranteed two games. The fans/family members are passionate as all get out and have different traditions that are quite entertaining.
One group created a game that was addicting as all get out. The outfield fence is covered with sponsors. So everyone ( small group of us ) picked three sponsor signs and when the ball is hit to OR over that sign, you collect one point. Damn It Was Fun!!
Tonight is the Championship game between San Jacinto ( TX ) vs Chipola ( FL ) at 7:05pm. San Jac just so happens to be the defending Champions. Should be a pretty good games as both teams posted only ONE error all week long. A solid Defense wins Super Bowls, Tennis Opens, And World Series Titles.
One ... Two ... Three ... Take Me Out To The Ball ....

The Grand Valley offers over 10,000 miles of trails. Think about that??? 10,000 miles of off road beauty. Click On These Photos And Picture Yourself Surrounded By Silence
In any direction, The Boy Dog and I can simply GO. Our Colorado Governor dedicated May 20th 2017 as Colorado Public Lands Day. Governor John Hickenlooper addressed a number of us during the Off-Road Endurance Race and delivered a brilliant speech. Many of us chatted about his inspiring words of honoring our public lands afterwards. It was so nice to connect with fellow man again
I am bringing this up because I have been thinking a lot about our trails, our water, our freedom, and ways of educating our youth. We all know that our youth is our future!! We know this. The youth will be the answer to cleaning up trash, i.e. NOT THROWING AWAY TRASH and packing it out. Educating the youth is my answer anyway. Thats the easiest ways of curing diabetes, eliminating obesity, and empowering ones soul. Wish Me Luck
My legs felt really good this month. The calf issue has gone away, my gluts are much stronger ( balanced ), and absolutely no new problems have surfaced. Todays Strava update will put me over 300 miles for the month and somewhere along that line I posted 3 new personal records. Righteous
I am totally looking forward to the month of June. The month starts off with the Palisade Grand Fondo this Saturday. Then, the crazy down hill enduro on Sunday. This is a 3 Stage race on Sunday June the 4th. Our Grand Valley will explode with excitement, will fill with tourist, and breathe life again. I am so fired up right now. I am about to lace up and take the Boy Dog out for a site inspection today. We are hiking all three stages and checking for that elusive perfect line.

I am back on Spring Time chores again. Thankfully, I have the Boy Dog to supervise my every move.
Recording some sweet miles on Strava and I am under the impression that the old Garmin is on its last leg. I tired uploading a No Excuse Loop but Strava had the big red bar "inciting a riot" No, how about indicating "missing data" to upload. Oh Well, The Boy Dog says he doesn't need to be tracked anyway.
I am also at fault here!! While I was watering the basil, chard, spinach, beets, carrots, peppers, and TOMATOES, this little bird hung out the WHOLE time. That bird didn't fly away when the dogs walked by, when I moved the nose, or when I walked by having forgot it was there. I took that photo with my phone and was only standing about 5 feet away. Happy Little Bird Looking To Be Added In A BoB Ross Painting
Epic Weekend Coming Up!! Epic Rides will be in town for the 5th Annual Off-Road Endurance and Downtown Music Fest. I highly recommend watching the video on that page. The 40 miler is closer to 50 miles with the course change and the 30 miler is spot on. The Klunker Krit and Criterium Race are both held on Friday. The Infamous String Dusters will be the big hit Saturdays night!! I'm pretty stoked with all the bands but the String Dusters are Phuc-N fabulous and ITS FREE TO ALL!!
The gym has been treating me very well this month. For whatever reason this month, I took off the "heavier" weights and went with lighter weights and more reps. Not sure why I took this route but I have enjoyed the burn. Its much easier for me to focus on the full ROM and contract the muscle group near the end of each rep. I Like It
If you had asked me about mileage on the bike, I would have answered " Maybe 500?" And if you had asked me about milage for this week " No Clue" and those " Personal Records " are NOT anywhere near the top 100's from other recorded riders on our local trails. Well, let me toot my own horn here for a second, while on my commuter bike, I registered the 87th fastest time on the " Bridge Climb " up and over the mighty Colorado River towards the OM House. So Thats Whippin
The next two weeks will include a lot of office time and we shall see how I manage training and Boy Dog time. This is a good thing but could be a little hectic for sure. I have two radio shows during the last week of the Month and Mr Jim might roll through the Valley on his return trip to California.
So Until Next Time .... Eat Well ... Be Well ... And Smile For No Reason At All
Saturday, May 13, 2017
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday were pretty damn awesome because of the fluidity of merging plans. A damn good friend of mine, many call Hippie Jim, I refer to him as YellowOrangeBluePurple on air, had is own agenda and me with mine.
Mr Jim drove out from California ( doesn't everyone simply say Bay Area ) on Thursday. His final destination is Denver before returning back to CA. I am always so thankful when he takes time out of his busy schedule to accommodate me and patiently/politely listened to my stories.
After "a" brew, he jumped on my commuter bike and headed for the downtown library as The Blue Z was performing a magic show for the kids. Those shows are flipping fantastic, just so you know.
I rolled out on the Midnight Racer towards KAFM community radio station. YOU CAN listen to that show until the end of the month by clinking on the RADIOFREEAMERICA link. It's located on the right side of that web link.
Then, folks began arriving to the station to hang with Mr Jim just after 7:00pm. Hints: The Time Lapse Video. I look to be on the phone a lot and even Janet ( every other Wed at 3pm ) made a comment about the amount of phone calls. I think you 'll wanna have a listen and hear why everyone took the time to call.
The end of that night, which included just "A" brew, that morphed into late evening story sessions. Where did you spend New Years, irrigation projects, upcoming Country Jam, and/or other wonderful moments in time were shared and accompanied with tons of laughter. " Are You Kidding" quotes flowed like the brew in a freezer frosty pint glass. Thanx Mr Jim
Today was a date with Bangs Canyon!! Editing time lapse and photos tomorrow after work. Like I said before, Rockin' Last Few Days. Legs feel loose, shoulders pulled with power, and coordination/reflex abilities are clearly sharpening. This next week is forecasted for incredibly high and dry windy conditions which will create some interesting situations. Adventure On
