ounds like a slice of heaven!

except for that little thing about SNOW IN THE WINTER.   ::shiver::   ick.   

Yeah.  But dear David assures me it should only last a day or two AND that I DO NOT have to go out into it!  He is also guaranteeing me the garage will be insulated and warmed AND the car will be too.  It had better be!!!

But be sure you own the water rights, some areas in Colorado, the water rights do not come with the land

As we read the fine print on the papers we've been receiving we DO own the water rights to the well.  But I will be sure to double and triple check on that!

Oh my Judy!  The adventures coming your way!

i have been craving a trip to Co!  We have a couple of friends there.  But traveling isn’t happening so much right now!

How very exciting! Congrats and good luck on your new adventure. Colorado is the one place we have considered moving. Butunless one of the kids move there I am guessing we are staying put.

Thanks.  It surely will be an adventure.  It already has been a bit.  But once we are in we can be a "go to" destination for you!!

With much of David's extended family in the Denver area and south to Colorado Springs we have seen a bit of it.  The original family farm was in Eastern CO (in Limon, CO) and is no longer owned by the family.  But we did take DJ out there when he was young and we were there for a family reunion.  David's Granny was a homemaker, piano player for the church and a quilt maker.  After she passed her two daughters found a number of quilt blocks and partial projects (as we all have) so they got them together and began a long project of putting together a quilt for every direct family member down to her grandchildren.  Once they were all finished the family all came together at church she attended in Colorado Springs (she got to the point she could no longer live by herself) and we had "Granny's Last Quilt Show".  All the quilts were displayed so everyone could see them all together and then each blood relative were given one of the quilts.  It was a very special time of honoring and sharing together.  

We'll be a destination for you to visit in a couple (or 3) years and you can explore too!  DJ has been thinking of applying to AE internships in the Denver area and has already asked about being able to staying in the house that is on the property so he can commute from there.  He has also mentioned that Denver has quite a number of Aerospace companies working out of there.  Even if he does end up working in another area of the country he can easily fly in and out of Denver.  We'll see.

Well Mark is pretty grumpy and driving me crazy. He wanted to go to New Mexico till next Wed so I drove down here last Friday. I get to drive him back on Wed. His vest goes off in the middle of the night when he moves so last night he turned it off.................Yes nobody needs to tell me that is not a good idea. I went to be early last night because I have been running, running, running and was exhausted! Being the care giver is not an easy job around here.

There is snow on the front range but it does not stay all winter and is not too much at a time, maybe one or two bigger storms last winter but it melts. Also if there is a storm and you need to do some plowing the storms do not usually come back to back so it is not that bad. If you do not need to go out then stay in the heated house and it will all be fine. Since we are skiiers we get excited when it snows because that means fresh snow on the slopes.




Good, I know I had friends that sold their water rights, but that may have been surface irrigation water, but it is  a stange deal!  How far out from Ft Collins are you going to be?  Last time i was in Ft Collins, it had grown so much from when I was gong to college.
