Points West, Weekend One, Denver, CO

Points West

Weekend One, Denver, CO

It’s been nice to put up our feet and get out of the car for a few days in Denver.  On Friday and Saturday, the high humidity we’d been driving through continued and it was interesting to see thunderstorms form over the eastern side of the Rockies.  By Sunday, the air dried and the temperatures rose 20 degrees from the previous days.  Denver isn’t used to temperatures in the high 90s.

Maggie’s house is over 100 years old and is a work in progress.  Mary can’t help but start a bunch of projects any time she gets here.  This trip, she and Maggie did and Ikea “run” and got a new sofa for the living room.

I worked on some wiring issues and on getting a new TV installed in her downstairs guest room.  The original plan was to run new coaxial cable, but we opted for an HD antenna and only 60 channels of broadcast digital TV.  I suspect we’d only get 3 or 4 channels in Gainesville.

Mary also spent some time working with Maggie on the new Salvagetti Bicycle Workshop building.  It’s pretty bare, and about 5000 square feet.  Maggie starts her job as the manager of the Salvagetti stores on Monday and they’re hoping to get moved in by August 1.    Luckily Mom is in the construction business and I know her advice will be helpful.  While they were doing construction drawings, I was indexing my next book—a thankless job I’d saved for the road.  I still need to do the Florida Sportsman Big Bend Fishing4Cast for next week and am waiting for reports from anglers and guides back home (hint, hint).

Maggie’s neighborhood is only about 2 miles from downtown Denver.  Her neighbors are a good ethnic mix of solid hard-working folks.  I was proud to be here when I heard the news about the President’s stand on rights for children brought here by their so-called “illegal” alien parents trying to find a better life.  I still can’t believe that some of these kids were still considered illegal even though they had served in our Armed Services.  My grandfather got his U.S. Citizenship by serving in the Army during World War I and I see no difference between that war and the two or three we’re fighting now.

Maggie’s neighbor, Pascual, is a professional landscaper, and the cherries were ripe this weekend.  Mary and Maggie picked a bunch and made some cherry preserves—in their spare time from building and cleaning and cooking for the party projects

Sunday was Father’s Day, and despite the fact that I had to buy the food, we had a fun time with a bunch of Maggie’s friends.  Fried catfish (Mississippi snapper), burgers and hot dogs topped the menu.  And Phil and Anna brought boiled peanuts.

97 degrees in Denver. Time to sit by the pool.

Monday morning we’re off to Aspen to spend a few days with good friends Bob and Marsha Cook.  Kirby the dog will be glad there’s only one dog there—Scout and Boo Radley have kept him busy while he’s been in Denver.

    […] It seems that cherries are ripe all across the county right now. My parents are enjoying a three-week road trip from North Florida north to Colorado. They planted themselves in Denver this weekend with my sister, Maggie, and picked cherries in her neighborhood for preserves. Sounds like they had a great weekend with house fix-ups, fried fish and kiddie pools. See my Dad’s blog post here on their adventures.  […]
