New Flickr Account

I've finally taken the plunge into free web based photosharing. The easiest, cleanest looking, most widely used photo tool on the web (it's free) is I've created an account where many of my photos from my blog will be duplicated, but it is photos only. I've added a link in the sidebar ------->
But you may click here.
And would encourage those of you with blogs, who take amazing pics (Josh, Keith, Mel...) to do the same! Not many up yet, but will keep growing.

Happy rainy weekend all!

Grandma and Grandad will be home soon (yippy!) and will hopefully be bringing the sunshine back with them... I'm furiously knitting hats, but will probably have to put them away until next winter. Hopefully Grandma can refine my skills by then too!

Durango Mountain Resort - Closes For the Season

Spring has sprung, and on a warm afternoon I found myself with another sprained ankle amidst a crazy end of the season snowball fight, and two young (eh, hem....) lovers???

Josh came to visit Phil and I with his buddy, Adam down in Durango, where I spent my spring break. Phil and I had a great time doing nothing at all, watching movies, climbing, and oh, the most important part, I beat him at Scrabble. The grand finale to my time here, I could not ski on closing day because I stupidly fell in the street, spraining my rediculous ankle once again. Instead, there was an all you could drink beer tent to celebrate locals, the first spring weather, and those who could make pie-wedges down the front run....

Chaos broke loose at the end of the last run. The loud speakers announced a suggestion that "everyone should just go home. The beer has run out!"

I have no idea who's dog this is, but there was a turkey frying contest and all the puppies were eating the bones off the ground.... I hope they made it home safely!!!

Josh and Phil, solving the world's problems.
