Clicking the pics is mandatory for me but optional for everyone else.
Old downtown area.
Another hot day today, and it's getting difficult for me to try and accomplish anything other than staying cool.
Babysitting the grandkids for a few days, I was mostly in my daughter's house, which is air-conditioned, and it wasn't hard to get used to the 74° in the house. But now I'm back out in the yard in the Arctic Fox with no air conditioning, and it's taking some time to get used to that again.
I try to do some little project on the Lance every morning when I get up because, by about 10 o'clock, it's already getting hot enough that I don't feel like accomplishing much of anything. I sure will be glad when this hot spell is broken because even the nights are getting a bit warm for me.
About the middle of next week, it's predicted there will be a few days of highs in the low 80s, which, after all of these 90° days, I'll probably have to break out my coat and my longest long-johns.
I will probably be sticking around Denver until late October to help around the house. Ordinarily, I wouldn't be here that late for fear of having to deal with snow to be able to get out of town, but since I'll be in the Lance instead of pulling the Arctic Fox, my concerns about dealing with snow are considerably less.
A piece of antique farm equipment obviously designed to poke many small holes in the ground. And since the farmer sat on a bench right above these pokey looking things, and since this entire contraption was pulled by an ornery mule, you could probably write a book on how easily a farmer could end up perforated.
I can't remember what kind of car this hood ornament was on, but it does look like what people thought a space station would look like in the future.
This "W" represents Western Colorado University in Gunnison Colorado, you would think college kids would have better things to do than this; but in Gunnison? No, actually they don't.
