rainy day entry

I usually have no problem finding something to blog about around here.  Pets are always a good source for journal entries.  If all else fails, I take a ride on Blue and snap pictures of the countryside.  But we're in a rainy spell right now, which keeps me housebound.  You can look at the last few entries and tell I've been uninspired. 

Cliff and I are talking a lot about our upcoming Colorado vacation.  His sister and her husband plan to go along; we'll trailer the motorcycles across Kansas, find a suitable place to leave the car, and ride around Colorado on the bikes.  Charlene and Pat have never been there.  Cliff and I never tire of the beautiful scenery, like you see in these pictures from our train ride last summer.

I've found a couple of websites that list nice, scenic roads for motorcycles to travel:  HERE and HERE.

The four of us will share motel rooms, to cut down on expenses.  This could be very interesting:  Cliff and I are early birds (especially me) and Pat and Charlene are late sleepers.  The one night we spent together in Branson a few days ago was a preview of coming attractions.  I'm hoping to take my laptop, so if we're staying where there's wireless Internet, I can scoot on out to the lobby and do what I do best... surf and blog!  I may also take a walk while they're still in bed, as will Cliff.

We're hoping Charlene's asthma doesn't give her problems in the thin mountain air.  We'll take our time acclimating ourselves to the altitude.

Yes.  Once again, I have Colorado on my mind.  It seems to happen every year.

Those are great pictures. Would you please share some of that rain with us? It's hot and dry here. One city here is under a no burn alert. We all need to be under it. Thanks for sharing your pictures. Helen

I hope you have fun while in Colorado. I've never been there myself, but I can only say that for another month of so. I'll be heading to the Denver area in June to meet us with some friends for a long weekend.
