Everybody loves my Baby

I love Facebook!

Who would have ever thought that Facebook would/could help me make so many connections: family, friends, acquaintances, new friends – and by golly – memories??

Reading the inspirational blog of Colleen Smith (which I’ve followed since I began blogging – and so thankful I discovered her), brought back all the good Denver, Colorado memories.  Colleen’s blog has uplifting as well as common-sense thoughts and I love visiting.

Probably the first time we heard Lannie Garrett sing was about 1979 . . . or thereabouts . . . and we loved her voice and her theatrics and visiting with her (she was friendly and fun and she  volunteers her voice and time for several good causes in Denver).  Viewing some of the recent videos and listening to the audios of Lannie, I don’t think she has aged at all.  Her voice is still strong and lovely – and brought back the  good memories of our times (three times!) in Colorado. . .

Ah – Colorado memories . . .

Will Spring ever arrive??

Early Spring in Denver, Colorado

We have not had snow in Seguin, Texas (although other parts of Southwest Texas were hit with snowstorms this winter).

These snapshots were taken April 1967 when we moved from Houston to Denver.  Hubby had been in Denver for a year before the kids and I arrived (waiting until the Houston house sold and it was the end of a school year).  He wrote about the beautiful tulips that lined the walk of our new home.  On the trip from Houston, we ran into snow from Amarillo until we arrived in Denver.  Our beautiful tulips were frozen.  Spring in Colorado!!

COME ON, SPRING!

taking care of business (retired from!)

remembering Denver winters – brrrrr!

There is so much I love about Denver.

The people.

The mountains.

The Arts.

The museums.

The fantastic Denver Library!

The Tattered Cover – browsing through all of the books; a cup of coffee in the TC’s coffee shop.

Racine’s Restaurant (oh yes!).

LoDo.

And more.

It was so peaceful and lovely to be warm and cozy during a gentle snow.

BUT, I don’t miss shoveling the snow or driving on icy roads –

or dangerous snowstorms.

Again, BUT,

the marvelous things about Denver outweigh shoveling snow

and being very very cautious while driving on icy roads.

However, after living in Seguin, I certainly do notice the Mega-Traffic when we visit!

NOT the Tattered Cover Bookstore

I really really really miss the Tattered Cover Bookstore in Denver! [which this is NOT]
