Got Snow?


Our mountains are now white-capped. It always snows in September... I shouldn't be surprised.


I'll save the snow for last; first I need to get you off Grand Mesa. One more post after this should do it. So grab a cup of coffee, find a comfy spot, and enjoy the marvelous views through our windshield. 

Now go have a nice, cool, Autumnal day.

  4. So many exquisite photos.

    Didn't you just change your blog photo to autumn. Is it time to change it to winter already?

    I can see why you love it there so much.

  5. Klbexplores,
    Yeeeesssssss... it's so! The snow actually dresses the mountains up. They look naked without it.
    thanks

    CowBoy Brian,
    I don't think you have anything to fear... the ground is still too warm around here for snow to stick around.
    thanks!

    Gumo,
    You are welcome... Thanks for mentioning that :))
    It keeps me going.

    Travel Bug,
    I did just change to the Autumn Edition. But tho it will be winter here in The Crevice, it will be fall somewhere else. That's where you will find us... extending our favorite season... putting off the Winter Edition as long as possible... till like Christmas! Yeah, CHRISTMAS. :))

    Thanks for your cool comments!

  10. I intend to refer back to these posts when hubby redoes Meshak, yes, he's a he!I wanted a newer L D, but hubby's to cheap, so I gotta figure out how to make him sorry. Drugs are out cuz of dogs noses, just need to smuggle a single gun into CanadaI am trying to decide how to make the old cabinet doors look better.Please tell me where you got e shades,I ordered one blind for the kitchen make That times three,

    whew.
    I plan to take Page from andys book,and cover the old cushions, but new ones will be more comfy.
    with the moony saved by not getting a new rig, I've got a bit to play with. Would love a newer bigger ri, but there ain't none out there, you took the last one.

    I hope your ideas aren't copyrighted.



    Expectedly, Jean

  11. Jean,
    We found the blinds at Lowes, but they are outdoor blinds. They look fine tho, and they do a good job on privacy as they are densely woven.... and the L D trademark tinted windows don't hurt either.
    No patents here... copy all you want :))
    Good luck! and thanks.
