Now You See It.....Now You Don't

Yeah, yeah, I know it's been 3 weeks since we last posted. It's not that we don't care....just that we don't want to bore you with repetitive posts that all look and sound the same. Joan reminds me every so often that I haven't posted but I keep reminding her that I'll post as long as it's fun and interesting for our readers....not if it becomes a chore.

Judy in the Sky with Diamonds!!!!!

A couple of weeks ago while we were strolling in downtown Salida Joan and I met Judy. Judy is an independent woman who owns her own business, rides a 2003 Anniversary Harley Davidson and drives a BMW Z3 convertible.

Judy and Joan on Top of Independence Pass

We hit it off immediately and a couple of days later we joined Judy for a ride over Independence Pass into Aspen.

We stopped in Aspen at a place called Woody's Canyon Grill for lunch before returning home. The ride was great as was the company.

A few days later we took the jeep off-road again. The views and vistas we experience while driving through the valleys and across the mountain passes is something that always impresses Joan and I.

I'm in the 3rd week of softball season and starting to get back into shape. I'm playing on 2 teams, one in Salida(6-0) and one in Buena Vista (2-0). I'm the oldest on the BV team by 11 years; and the oldest on the Salida team by 30 years. I keep telling them not to put the fast runners behind me but they just don't listen. I really hate it when those young whipper-snappers keep bumping into me between the bases.

Joan and I have been trying to think of ways to keep our readers interested in the blog so we decided to give our readers a puzzle to figure out. I'm sure most of you have seen the magazines with 2 nearly identical pictures where the readers try to find the differences...well that's what we decided to try. Below are 2 pics with several small differences. Check them out and see if you can pick out the discrepancies.

You can 'Comment' on the blog; email us; or call us directly with your guesses. We'll blog the correct answers later this week.

June 24th....a day to remember.....Happy 81st Birthday to Joan's Dad Tommy.

Stay Tuned. More to Come.


  1. The most obvious is Joan's hat, bracelet and ring...Steve's ring and shirt.
