UPDATE (2/22/2011): For those of you trying to follow Blair’s blog while she is in India, she is having problems getting it to post. She emailed this morning that she was in the airport at Bangalore, waiting on a flight to Mumbai. She will try to post again there. The address is www.blairstravelblog.wordpress.com.
It’s been a “pretend it’s Spring” weekend here on the ri’vah. After getting the boat all primed and ready for our trip over to the state park on Thursday, Ted took full advantage of the nice weather and was out on the water Friday and Saturday. Instead of driving to the Bottom, now he can go by water, and it won’t be long before boats will be the primary means of transportation to the little tavern. Pontoons, fishing, and ski boats will be tied up to each other along the dock, and there will be lots of days when we’ll have to step through a couple of other folks’ boats to get to ours – but nobody ever minds. It’s the ri’vah way.
“You think we’re done with cold weather?” I asked Ted on Saturday morning. He said no. He thinks we’ll have another cold spell before we can put away our coats for good. I just hope it isn’t too cold, because everything is beginning to look like spring around here.
Blake has been in Colorado a little over a week now, and he is settling into his new town and job. ELIC employees work “four-tens”, going in to work from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, giving them a three-day weekend every week. Wow – would I have ever loved that when I was working! He got in a little exploring on Saturday and posted some photos from Horsetooth Reservoir which is a few miles outside of Ft. Collins. The reservoir is at an elevation of 5,430 feet and is 1,900 acres of water surrounded by 2,000 acres of public land.
A final note from India. Blair landed in Bangalore Sunday afternoon around 2 p.m. after flying almost 13 hours (she had a two-hour stop in Paris). We received an email from her a little after 6 p.m. saying, “It is 4:30 am in India, and we are 2 hours past the time we thought we would be getting in the bed. I have to be up at 9:30. I will have more time to talk tomorrow and start getting some info on my blog!” Hope she got some sleep on the plane!
Bear and I are working Monday and Wednesday, and I’ll see you back here on Friday. Have a great week, and God bless.
