My Fitbit and Me
Today, I received my trusty Fitbit Flex in the mail.  After a good half an hour spent setting up my newest technological item, it is now firmly attached to my wrist.  Yes, I have joined the Fitbit crowd.   Some readers may remember my talking about this ear...

Yard Sales and Farmer's Markets and Pulled Pork, Oh My!
As some readers know, I am of the opinion that a good yard sale is a terrible thing to waste!  Granted, I no longer have young children or grand children to shop for, but I still find yard sales fun and a challenge. On this particular weekend I had no hot p...

Revisiting The Road Trip-Day One Denver to Moab
For those who have not figured it out yet, I am one of those people who can turn a four day visit to see family into a ten day or more road trip.  What can I say, that's just the way I roll.  I hate to fly (there are no words) and probably will only fly aga...

Why I'm Renting In Retirement-and Loving It!
    Although we've had many seventy to eighty degree days already in Denver, April is in fact the snowiest month.  Friday, I woke up to the end of a very wet overnight snow, and a very huge tree branch on the ground (not quite as big as this accident from l...

Preparing to Hit The Road-a Checklist. Also, a small grumbling, and a huge relief
I apologize folks, I normally am back to at least two entries on this blog per week, but in this case preparing to hit the road and helping my son had me sidetracked there. When I return, the other blog SHOULD be ready to go, who knows!! I am now in the las...

About Those Cost Of Living Increases-and Another Income Addition
It's that time, and it comes (almost every year).  You may know what I'm talking about-the annual (not so) great cost of living increase.  Because I'm a federal pensioner, I get two of those little increases, one of which begins in April. Don't get me wrong...

Very professional and easy to work with. Fernando was very unobtrusive but took piles of wonderful pictures. Some of the pictures were truly amazing and the photos came back very quickly! A delight to work with and we loved pictures. A wonderful job and I would definitely hire Fernando again! Thanks so much! 21:17 May 20, 2014
