I hope this works….

If you don't experiment, you don't learn.

About me

I live in Colorado in the urban sprawl of the city known to it’s inhabitants as “The Springs”, but everyone else says, “Yer from Colorado Springs?  Really?  Then, in an “I pity you, you poor soul” kind of voice they add in an undertone, “Is it really as bad as they say?”

I know some ppl who feel a great lift of their spirit when they head north to Denver, others come here to the Springs just to be shocking and show-off. They are like circus performers who can’t believe it when they find out the inhabitants have already seen it and done it. “What? they cry, “but I was all prepared to show you the way out of your benighted condition by being rude, shocking and uncouth.”  *rolls eyes*    You do not know us.  Don’t automatically assume we all ride the same boat.

*looks around*

*gets off soapbox*

I ride an ’09 Kawasaki Ninja 500r. I am a surrogate grandmother to a very sweet young man who will dominate the world as soon as he learns how to say “pick that up.” I like to go to conventions dressed in my Steampunk finery. I have two wonderful sons – one in the Navy and the other is a CNA.  Both of them make me proud. I have been married for 30 years…..oops, my DH just corrected me…I have been married 31 years.  🙂  I think the world is a beautiful place.  I work part-time at a care facility in Denver. I like to experiment with gardening, ultra-light backpacking, cooking, sewing and certain things related to house-keeping (soaps and cleaning products) and me-keeping (lotions and toothpaste).  I do not like dusting or ironing.  I will do both, but without élan.
