Every day - I am grateful for the very good health that my wife, myself, and all our children (5), and grandchildren (8) enjoy!

 

And - I'm grateful that this brave new world of online communicating has included in its development such a useful tool as emoticoms.

I am grateful for having a difficult childhood, because it caused me to become self-reliant. Or, as Ralph Waldo Emerson said, self-reliance has brought me “consistent access to survival.” Hurrah to that!

 

I'm also grateful that life hasn't always been a rocky uphill climb. Smiley Happy

I am grateful for the beauty of the state of Colorado. And beyond grateful for those who serve, or have served, in the armed forces. Thank you, @bw95562019!

I am grateful that cooking skills can be acquired and that our tastebuds have caused our kitchen to emulate many different latitudes and longitudes.

@wilful We are in the beautiful Colorado Front Range where the fishing is good, the winter sports excellent and the summers over in a flash so yas gots ta gets yer behind moving ifn ya wants to enjoy 'em. Smiley Happy

 

Know this: here winter can happen any day of the year, but summer, well, we restrict that to a few weeks in July and August. 

 

One more tidbit: we happen to live at 6,000 ft above sea level, but frequently drive up the hill to 10-12K. Ahhhhhhh, Colorful Colorado! 


We spent a few days in Denver in May.  Leaving, we headed south on the 25 and drove thru the edge of a tornado... Very exciting with black sky(at noon), rain, snow, ferocious hail and wind - which turned over a car that passed us.  Love that weather!  Smiley Happy

 

Incidentally, Boulder is the home of my favorite fiction writer - Stephen White.
