Peter Gabriel 

September 1982

                                     

Burning the quads and racking up the snowshoe miles during the month of January. Some of the outings weren't all that great because of the lack of snow fall totals this winter. COLORADO IS BONE DRY 


You see, the thin snow pack draped over the landscape is thawing out during the day, deep freezing at night, melting off in the day, deep hard freeze overnight, and the sedentary habitual pattern continues on and on and day after day. So walking on the frozen tundra ice cap kinda blows with traditional snowshoes.


As you can see in the upper photo, ZERO fresh snow in the trees. OK, there are a few patches of snow on the north facing branches but nothing to get all worked up over. No Snow Angels 


But under those dramatically dry conditions, better than my best day at work. And the below photo, too funny! Loki caught the sent and we humans followed him on the hunt. Check It Out 


Yes, that is Bambi's front leg sticking out there off DEAD center. My best guess is that a mountain lion took her down and buried her a few weeks back. The hungry coyotes have dung her up by the evidence of fresh poop piles near by. I passed on posting the photo here of her head with those sweet black eyes resembling the shock of death. I did send it to a few California friends that day. I also sent a pretty damn entertaining video that was met with both friction AND humor. 



REENTERY:

My re-entry from the vacation with The Dude was just ok. Not crazy. Not all that exciting but just what one expects. However, I hit the ground running and its been a rather busy couple of weeks. Appreciate You Checking In KB. But my bump in the road was knowing that I wouldn't be spending as much time with The Dude anymore. He is back at teaching at the college, I am doing my thing, and time is flying on by. 



When I was asked about my "favorite" moment by Perth, its gotta be spending time with The Dude. We speak to each other with no judgment, mornings are for sipping a nice cup of joe while bringing life back into our sleepy bodies, planning our daily route with both parties interest in mind, and rolling with the flow when plans are spontaneously altered. Some of my favorite moments were the conversation while following that elusive BLK Audi. Plus, he is one brilliant Mother Phuc-R.


And the other advantage traveling with The Dude would be that we seek similar interest and we thoroughly enjoy the adventurism of the exploring new found adventures. Right?? And damn we can make each other laugh. I mean eye watering laughter. Sometimes its silly but The Dude's sense of humor is infectious. Damn We Laughed A Lot 

HOURS:

Check out those numbers for the week! My running ( 4:52 ) hours out numbered my riding ( 3:34 ) hours for the first time since the Boy Dog passed. Now I don't know top dog Jean but he must reside somewhere warm, local Peter is a machine with 12hrs on the bike with these winter time temperatures, Max is a stud and runs circles around our group every week, don't know N b.i.l., I worked with Jim's wife and he is putting up some impressive numbers for the week, don't yet know Scott below me, Tom is a stud, he has been in this blog a few times before, and a very likable soul, Bonnie is a flipping rock star and miss seeing her smiles at work, And Dawn wraps up the top 10 and looking forward to meeting up with her someday. 


By this photo below, how can you NOT get outdoors and lose yourself for awhile?? Yes, its only about 26F / -3.3C in this shot but Mr Sun feels so warm. Embrace Life 

WORK/JOBS:

Scored another part time job and who knew that this would materialize into so many opportunities. I am now cleaning hot tubs for extra hours on the pay check. The chemistry is so in my wheel house, flushing sediment out the pipes has become a no brainer, and I am happy to head over to different homes and clean away the time. 

Here is another little job that saved $$$$$. These replacement ropes for the pull down tricep machines cost bank to order band new. So purchased feet / meters of basic white rope, feet / meters of 1 inch heat tape rubber wire sleeves, screws / washers, and pirated the old parts off the black rope. Bingo, new accessory for under $7 Smackers. Simple 


And now, new strain of COVID or not, full gas in the Ortho world. I'm going for it. Not only that, I am really Phuc-N good at it. I have been working three to four part time ( all of 2020 ) jobs for awhile now and I am burnt out. Well, not burnt out but its not rewarding. These mindless jobs are not at all fulfilling. Its not my calling, it sure as hell its my passion, and I am just not stimulating myself like I would want. Don't get me wrong as I am very thankful for the past paychecks. This is no way shape or form of poor me. It's just that I love being a practitioner and working on humans is beyond words. I really wanna safety open my practice again. Chips Are All In 


For example; I was DRIVING to work on Monday morning, before sunrise, snow fell during the night, this Jack A$$ is so close to my rear bumper that I could not see their headlights. So of course I lifted off the accelerator, they pull around me, and sped off. Not far up the road they lost control on the icy road. You could clearly see their tire tracks in the snow where they over corrected, hit the brakes, and high centered on the median just east of the Horizon Drive Round-a-Bout. Classic! Why am I driving to this job?? I have YET to drive to the office!! Proud of the fact that I have always rode the commuter bike to the office ever since I landed that sweet office space on Main Street. Ortho Is My Calling 



And here is my new logo!! What do you think?? I began with an ear, that spiraled into a foot, and outlined with a hand. All the main reflexology points and hopefully speaks body work. Any advice is welcoming. New Biz Cards, Rack Cards, And Three Panel Brochures are on the way. YES


One of my volunteer gigs that has been on going for years now is picking up denotations from restaurants, catering companies, the food bank in Palisade, and grocery stores donating expired / out of date items for the church to support their outreach program. So this dish above, 100% free!! The salmon and strip came off the grill last Sunday between the AFC / NFC Championship Games. The veggie rice pilaf, cut up fresh organic fruit, grilled yellow/red/green organic bell peppers, and a delicious organic green salad were also free from Saturday's pick ups. With a belly full of nutritious goodness and oats wheat barely, I began walking. And Walking. LIKE REALLY WALKING


With a few cans in my jacket, I begin walking towards downtown Sunday Night after those volatile championship games. So damn beautiful strolling around the mean streets of GJ without a soul in sight. And Yes, The Phuc-N Christmas lights are still up. Keeping GJ Lame  


I start another house sitting gig this month and couldn't be happier. They have little kittens now and I don't plan on relaxing or getting much sleep. Kittens, so dang cute but pretty flipping rowdy during the night. I have worked for them before when they had dogs and they have always taken really good care of me. SCORE

PERTH:

Perth, you are such a wonderful woman and I am truly looking forward to staying with you and your husband someday. For those of you that don't know, Grace was the first person to ever post a comment on this blog. As you could imagine, that was a very exciting day for me. Many moons later, Perth still inspires me. This video below is from the vacation through AZ, the Biosphere 2, all 4 disc golf courses, Vegas, and home cooked meals. When I uploaded all the clips and photos, 53 minutes long!!! I edited down the video to 15min and could possibly be a few minutes shorter if I got a little jiggy with it. But I am pleased to have this in the history book, will enjoy glancing back some day, and thank you Perth for nudging me to create this mini documentary. Thanx in advance for watching and its totally fine with me if you only watch the Biosphere 2 footage!!

 

Play Nice, Smiles Pretty, And Inspire Those Around You,

Cheers

  2. LOVE the logo! I got the hand and foot right away -- wouldn't have seen the ear until you mentioned it, but now I do. It's very cool!

    So I guess it's a dud of a ski season, huh?

    I totally get having some post-vacation let-down. I always go through that too. You will travel with the dude again soon enough, I'm sure. :)

    Oh, and I'm so glad you're making use of that food. It makes me crazy to see food discarded.

  3. Dearest Travis,
    Sure glad that Grace nudged you for documenting this, and proudly I watched it as your 23rd viewer.
    Too bad that the fresh snow never materialized...
    Great initiative for going back to what your passion is!
    That always proves to be best and you get most satisfaction from that.
    Good luck.

  6. I guess walking in snow and on ice uses different muscles to normal walking muscles, rather like walking in soft sand. Perhaps not as you want, but the cold and clear blue skies look nice. Perth is a lovely person indeed.

  10. Weird, where did the snow go from the trees? So windy up there?
    Snow angles, sweet memories - will ask the Nieces if they made some, we had snow, too.
    Oh, my - Bambi´s leg!!! I once drove against the wind (in Australia) and there was a kangaroo, standing right there. I thought it can neither hear nor smell us coming, so I slowed down. I finally stopped the car cause I thought no one will believe this. It was dead.And the driver of the car it damaged put it on a stick. "Still standing", let´s call it Phil.

    Glad you laughed a lot, hope you can resume such a journey together soon.

    Your dog passed?! How sad.
    Glad you have a job, I´m still waiting. Yikes for stupid people on the wheel.

    I like the logo. Maybe add a "blob" to make clear it´s an ear in the beginning, know what I mean? And the toes maybe in different sizes? You asked! ;-)

    Great with the food, we have re-food here, and other orginasations (and myself, I near to never throw away food,it says "best-before", right, smells good, tastes good, is OK).
    Walking is good.
    Awwww, kittens, lucky you! Send two over?
    Good on your fitness, doing the best here, also.

    :-) Grace is truly a friend, as P is, also. She sends me sexy firefighters if I cannot come to Perth. (Good cause, money goes to the Children´s Hospital).

    Cheers, let´s hope we can travel overseas soon again!

You know I love photos but they only snap that one moment, on a trip like that video is the best way to capture the excitement of the whole trip. Was all good but you are right the Biosphere footage was stunning 💜 I had a feeling you would rate the Dude as the favourite part of the trip, it's most often the company that's the clincher, especially if they have a brilliant sense of humour 😀 love that your new logo incorporates so much, did you design it? Hopefully this year you will be able to get back to what you love most in the meantime have fun with those cute kittens 🐈

  34. Great views and photos. Sorry to hear about the poor snow quality that makes walking difficult...but as you say, at least you're exploring nature and seeing new things. It must have been interesting seeing that Bambi. I think your guess about mountain lion is correct. They are prone to hiding their pray in the snow.
    Cool that you got to hang out with the Dude and explore new territories together.
    I hope you'll get the chance to open your practice soon. Your logo idea is very nice. I think it delivers the right message and it's not too complicated as a design. Just about right, I'd say.

    My opinion on your new logo: Less is more. I would put a few lines less ... the foot only as an outline - no lines inside ... I don't do it when you can only imagine the ear and not really see it. Yes it is. Less is more.

    Keep on the good job and stay safe!

  43. Interesting post. I hate to hear about the lack of moisture. We have substantial beetle kill down near LC and I always fear a dry summer. A bolt of lightening can ignite those standing dead trees.
    Seems like you come up with interesting gigs for extra money. I can only imagine how much fun those kittens must be! As for Perth...She is a great lady! Stay healthy....Janey

  44. Organic rice may be cooked and eaten as a high-fibre, high-nutrition wholegrain, often called brown rice, or might be husked and then served as white rice, which is less nutritious and has no fibre content. Is rice a high or low gi food? A few rice families have distinct and attractive fragrances and flavours, but most basmati brown riceis chosen to be bland so it can be cooked, served and eaten as a filling accompaniment to tastier foods.
