A small fish pulled out of the ocean with strong mono filament line tossed out by hand with a bit of weight and what looked like a worm. They told me it's inedible but that Chinese eat a certain part of it.

Somewhere Else

And that is close to the pin in the picture in a small town south of Puerto Vallarta named El Nagalito.


Walked down to the ocean a half mile away and this is what it looked like. The hill/mountains are steep and the trees and particularly the palms are thick and just plain huge. Pretty impressive actually.

Internet has been real slow so it will be difficult possibly to put many pictures up. It's quiet and everyone is totally friendly. The little I was in PV it seemed like a vibrant city with something for everyone.

Have a good one!

If You Think He's A Real Special One

You are wrong.

Pope says assisted suicide is a "sin against God"

If one thinks change will be made within the church that many catholics want you will be wrong again.

The Poop himself should reflect a bit on what compassion means in matters that are none of his or the place he works for business.

The Poop and all the rest like him can kiss my ass.

Why Some Leave

Maybe because enjoying warm weather is just plain over and done with. 10° is a tough number as well.

Needs to be said "think they need to leave". Don't think too much Fly you just get yourself in trouble. 

Struggling to be positive the bright side since the sun is gone has been gone and won't be seen much is the wind hasn't been blowing.

About Fuzzy

For anyone who knew about this pooch Friday was a day to look forward to as to see what Fuzz and his best buddy Boomer were up to.
It's a sad day today.



jebber

He was in town and I noticed for the first time not that it is, that the P word is being floated around. Of course it is.

They won't hardly have to work at this. The nation has been more than willing to be stupefied down that they would be proud to show the depth of that by electing the third bush bastard. Watch it happen! The numbers are not looking good for the Dims here in Colorado.

Shaking My Head/Not Worth Thinking About Too Much

In particular this one that the Denver Whore Post supports zygote crazy man for senator over entrenched Dim Udall. How can educated people take that position and by doing so they also support making abortion illegal? That's where this man and people and papers or what have you who support him are at - it's just that simple. Colorado showing it's own brand of exceptionalism and it's hardly worth giving a shit about because this is what just as many want as those who do not. Actually that sucks a hind teat.

LOCALLY
Stopped and read the two local papers and learned the following. Not bitching/complaining/judging or a damn thing - just saying. This in a town of 3000.

Two cases didn't get to court but will. One for child abuse resulting in death. The other child sexual abuse by a person of trust in this case the father.

Unfortunately and sadly after a nine month investigation a well know local man and business person was arrested for the bludgeoning killing of his wife.

At the city council meeting a resident complained about the police not enforcing a restraining order. Turns out they had and put the offender in jail. He was released because the jail was full and they had to make room for a more of a nasty bastard than him or maybe it was a her. Who knows - don't make a shit bit of difference.

In a bit going to Pueblo to buy meat basically as again just a few days ago brought home for maybe the 5th time in a year tainted meat. The way it is and has been for a long time and we're not talking just meat.

Weather is great and it's very pretty out with the trees changing and the backdrop of several mountain ranges topped off with the white stuff. It will hit 80 and time for shorts now. Life is pretty decent even with the bull shit. Note the header picture.

Have a good one !!!

Daredevils Ozark Type

It was tunes like this in the early 70's that helped fuel even more the allure of Colorado.

OH MY !!

Happened night before last. Not unusual by any means to get a dusting as it's described - - - - but it's a reminder of what's coming sooner than later.

Personally I's rather have taken a picture this morning of a banana tree.

From where the picture was taken it's 92 miles as the crow flies to Taos directly over the west Spanish Peak.

Plenty Sphinx Moths

Have never been around so many of these at one time. It was nice to see.

Bout Time

That I produced/put a post up or something like that. My friend Linda told me she was linking to here in her post tomorrow so I just can't have her readers come by and see an old post.

These picture have been sitting around in draft for awhile so I am using them. Not that they are all that good but in recent weeks have been around a bit and they are examples of that and some things seen or done.

Went to NW Colorado specifically outside of Steamboat Springs for several days where I visited old friends and the fact of the matter many of the "friends" I have live there.

This is vehicle central with the camper and grey Element mine and the other is an '05 we drove down to Longmont which is on the Front Range and picked up It was just like new and was driven by a young lady only. It's true.

On the way elsewhere went by the Twenty Mile Mine located between Hayden and Oak Creek which continues to produce mass quantities of coal using German technology with a movable long wall underground.

Went to Dinosaur to see the new visitor center. It opened two weeks after I left the area just about three years ago.

Several interesting panels on the ground just inside the Utah line on the road to Steamboat Rock that starts at the visitor center on the Colorado side of the monument.

It's always pretty out here in the evening.

Sitting on top of Blue Mountain where in the early 80's the world championship for hang gliding took place. I was the only one around but three people drove up and were looking and preparing for anther like event late Aug 2015. They expect 150-175 participants. I think that would be quite a site to see. Here is some info on that @ Rocky Mountain Glider. This is one of the launch sites here.    

Blue Mountain and where the campsite was above the camper.

The main reason for going to Dinosaur was the visitor center and to look for a certain style of petroglyph. This is what I call the "wall of bone" that is in the old visitor center. Wall of bone because that's what it is. Over the years Dinosaur has been noted for this and very likely you have seen it before. This is just huge and is hard to capture. It helps to click on the pictures to see them better. Third picture down has got some nasty teeth in it. This area was know for huge amounts of allosaurus a half size T-Rex.




This panel and others are impressive for sure and have what I'm interested in and that is pinwheels.


This has nothing to do with anything except it's here for some reason. A friend raised some 4000 cloves of organic garlic plus all kinds of other vegetables as well. Never had such good garlic before. 

Moving right along.  Sleeping Ute Mountain. Incredibly important to the Utes to this day.

This is in Hovenweep National Monument. Hovenweep is one of my favorite places and what has held true over the years remained the same in that this place and I cannot emphasize this enough has got to be one of the quietest places anywhere!! I mean that and it's one of the reasons I come. Not all the time but much of it you talk in whispers because normal speech seems too loud and it is.


It had rained and these frogs were out and they don't get to come out very often. There were quite a few of them actually.

If you ever come to what is know as "The Four Corners" area try and visit Hovenweep. There are several outliers that are very impressive as well plus others you may run across if you bush whack a bit. There were many people who lived here over the centuries. It's this area where I really feel at home for what ever reasons perceived or not.  

Make sure you click on this guy a couple times.

One of my favorites and it's within what is known as the "Holly Group" outside of the main park. It's a four mile hike one way from there to here. I recommend taking the car for this.

Doorways and windows generally produce pretty decent pictures.

Sunsets and sky viewing was the best ever. Laying out looking at the cosmos, warm no bugs no nothing but you and the sky. For me it can't get much better.

It's a pretty weed isn't it.

This is a fairly new national monument. It's called "Chimney Rock".  Wanted to see this and did. It was a bit of a bust in that it cost 12 smacks and you were very limited to where you can go.

This is worth seeing for sure and what's important is the ruins at the top are Chacoan in construction. Every archeologist agrees people from Chaco Canyon were involved with this building effort.

Wasn't able to take any decent pictures as you couldn't leave the path let alone go any farther than here in the picture. This guy wants to get out to the end. This is not to far from Mesa Verde.

There was a National Forest campground not far away. 18 smacks no water and marginal open pit units. It was $9 with my senior pass and not worth that but it was quiet as we were the only ones there.  

The summer has just flown by. Relish in the warmth and being able to wear sandals and such from the time you get up till the time you turn in.

Without question Colorado has got to be one of the more diverse and best places in the world. Beauty pass all with something outside for all types of interest.

IF - - - - I only liked that 4th season I would be in Nirvana. Alas I do not. So lucky to be able to do this kinda stuff at this stage of the game I tell you.
