Our weather here in the Grand Valley is unseasonable warm and life along the River Trail is in abundance. The knuckleheads ( by law and obligations downstream ) upstream are currently releasing water from the reservoirs in anticipation of heavy snow accumulations this winter. This means the poor Mighty Colorado River has come up significantly. Its STILL Way A$$ Low but it's coming up. Think Snow
But staying with the half full theory, the warmth and beauty is a consequential cause of River Trail users. An antiquated amount of walkers, ultra fit runners, and mommies pushing sleepy baby strollers while soaking up those sun rays litter the pathway. I am all for it and pleased to share this multipurpose trail system. Quality Of Life 101
Always amazed with the seasonal migration of the Canadian Geese returning from the north. Those birds have a very distinct honking sound as they circle high above. Its cool as you will hear them but they are almost out of sight. They are way up in the atmosphere as their tiny little white bellies are barely visible. All of a sudden a leader breaks away from the flock and naturally instinctive arrow shapes appear as they ride the thermal waves to wherever or towards the next body of water. I Enjoy It
Lucky for me, I have been experiencing Autumn's color changing for months now. I arrived in CB the Wednesday before Labor Day Weekend and groves of living orginiziums known as Aspen trees were emerald green. With every bike ride I witnessed golden carmel shades engulf the landscape. Same color changes with hints of fiery reds washed over the rolling hills and valleys while I was in Carbondale those last few days of September. Now, here in the valley, Fall colors are in full swing again. What A Magical World
Will finally be back on air in less than a weeks time. Talk about the cats meow!!
On tap, as of now anyway, loads of cover tunes. Wonderful tasty gems to offer up during the 4pm to 6:30pm time slot. Across my YT Algorithm popped up an entire album by The Police that is 100% instrumental. Hellz Yez!!! Broken Peach - Personal Jesus, HSCC - I Want To Know What Love Is, Bardcore Medieval - Sound Of Silence, Tony Bennett & Last Gaga - I Get A Kick, Stick Figure - Sun Is Shinning, and Big Head Todd with their rendition of ZZ Tops Cheap Sunglasses. Just to highlight a few tunes to wet your whistle. I Hope
You have two options here for streaming the radio show. #1 would be live at KAFM. Simply click on the LISTEN LIVE link there. #2 after the show, same website, click the 'on air' drop down tab near the top and click playlist, click calendar near the top, and then click Wednesday the 17th at 4pm which reads Jenny or Imagine or Jason. The show will be listed as Putting Down Roots with one of those programmers.
I would appreciate the opportunity if you would all allow me to apologize for expressing my emotional baggage during my last post. By sitting down, prioritizing my scheduled ideas, random thoughts, and chicken plucking away on this keyboard, I never stepped back to evaluate or process what I projected upon you all.
You see, I diminished Amber The Human's Birthday Dinner by selfishly inserting my own BullSh*t. My words should have painted an elegant evening with close friends, decadent entrees, and the lovely walk in the park I took myself on after dinner. Have you ever been with someone that transcends you across the universe of possibilities? Should have presented you all with that lovely evening and simply left it at that. But No
I personally thank Nancy J for her wise words of wisdom. Her comment struck me like a crackling down lightning bolt and shook me to my core. Sometime I am full on diarrhea man of the mouth from my own reflections, concerns, and what nots with complete disregard to others feelings or interpretations. Now I would not labeled it as reckless abandonment but some of what I write might possibly be imbedded in others lives forever. May Yes Maybe No
Another turkey day is closing in rather quickly. Insert your favorite adult cuss word here and read on. When I am talking of this particular subject matter, it is NOT a pity poor me while I am wearing my sissy pissy pants. This is just me reflecting, longing, and wishing that I had a hand to hold under the dinner table. Does everything work out?? Phuc Yes! Do I enjoy myself? u bet. Absolutely
Again, keeping with the half full glass of earthy red wine here, it is just that I desire an after dinner walk with a partner that wants to be with me for me. Spending meaningful hours together where we both experience a bustle in our hedgero. Would give anything to stroll along with someone this year during Thanksgiving Week as I am once again not at all fired up about the holiday we label THANX Giving.
You see, once again The Dude signed up to work at the church. So I am smoking the bird by myself yet again. Phuc'N Sucks!! As much as I admire him for stepping up and coordinating all those volunteers, wish we could spend time together like we used to. I used to smoke a bird on the middle rack, a duck or a goose or ribs on the top rack, and then we would all go for a hike and enjoy the morning together while the smoker does its thing. As you all know, I like being outdoors and Turkey Day Football Games isn't all that attractive.
The past few years have played out this charade in this order. I add fire to the pyramid of briquettes by 7am, fart around until about 1pm while adding water soaked wood chips, The Dude arrives after a morning of organizing volunteers, the rest of the family hustles in around 3pm, we wolf down like pigs in a mud bath, and then board games until the oldies depart. Am I Thankful, Yes!! Am I Fortunate For Family, Yes!! Half Full Glass, All Is Well & Will Be Well
