Right after The Palisade Bluegrass & Roots Fest, out to the farming lands I drove. I was invited to work Load Out after the Country Jam Festival. I arrived knowing that a majority of the crew were on day number 15, 20, 25 days straight. So I came into it with a gut full of laughter and ready to deliver empowering affirmations. For A Solid Two Days, We Giggled Like School Girls At Summer Camp
What caught me a little off guard was how well I received. They all remembered me from my manger role but they were incredibly genuine with their inquires as to where I have been. I also began to take note of how a number of them stood before me so present while we shared stories. Definitely a different kind of Country Jam vibe. I Preferred It
Thanx so much for continuing to support, enjoy, and stream my radio shows. Sure hope that its on your radar to stream the station once in awhile. There really is a variety of programing and pretty damn entertaining programers. KAFM Solar Powered Community Radio
Here ( https://www.radiofreeamerica.com/show/magic-carpet-ride-1-kafm-community-radio ) is the link from the June 20th Magic Carpet Ride featuring audio clips from The Brady Bunch. I covered The Blue Z's time slot and threw out a bunch of 1960's tunes, 1970's classic rock, & some very obscure remixed cover tunes. Solid two and half hour show and I felt like I was in a pretty good rhythm. Received A Lot Of Calls
|What A Place To Rest My Head|
June 19th Straight No Chaser Jazz Show w/an assortment of stand up comedy by Jerry Seinfeld , Jim Gaphigan, & Jimmy Fallon. Its an all instrumental two and a half hour program and the comedy clips slithered in perfectly. This particular time slot has a larger following and I was thankful for No Complaints. Could have gone ether way by those faithful listeners. Both of these links are only good for two weeks, worth a listen.
Took these shots in Meeker Colorado because of the life inside these trees. Those evergreens were packed full of Turkey Vultures. I took a few photos upon arrival but wasn't all that impressed. Wouldn't have shared these but the next morning was shocking.
Look at them all!!! There is a Red Headed Turkey Vulture on every limb of that Engelmann Spruce Tree with the alpha sunning itself on top. Meeker just happened to be sitting at 34F/ 1C at sunrise that morning. Let The Games Begin
Cycling & The Gym:
Like hasn't been happening but the body feels great. My Strava numbers are nonexistent this month and I haven't been by the gym weeks. Until today, a majority of what IS on Strava are single track miles. Not necessarily long on miles but huge efforts for sure.
Any big city folks understand highway congestion but we bear morning tractor traffic. And believe me, I do respect them farmers!! I would bet this farmer was working even before the sun came up today. Plus, I dig the agriculture, the seasons, Mother Nature, and lightning storms.
This Spring Season has produced some impressive displays of BoB Ross oil paintings as well. Our lightning out here crackles through the sky and then seeks the ground with vengeance. Some of these bolts dance off a discharge when making ground/cloud contact for seconds. Like, long enough that everyone has time to point it out. Not just a gasp but an F-Bomb might follow those dazzling strikes. Its Cool Sh*t For Sure
And now for the bad news - Bummer!! A Real Bummer. Its a bummer for everyone. This section of the River Trail is well used by walkers, runners, bikers, commuters, skaters, moms with strollers, and bankside fishermen. Yikes
For whatever reason, I let go of my driver late from every tee box. Whats up with that?!?!?! SO Sucks!! My putts were fine and my approach was par but I couldn't drive worth beans. But Hey, I was outside with the family. H & B brought both kids, dogs in tow, & the sounds from the Mighty Colorado River were bone crunching. So Much Debris Floating By
