HELLO, GOOD-BYE, Western Oompa and Broncos!

4 days have come and gone in a blink of an eye.   Where did the time go?  One minute I was staring with disbelief at my oldest son Gabe, who wasn't expected for another 3 months, and the next thing I knew I was waving goodbye to him yet again.  But at least this time he is going to stay in country, at least for a little while.

My sister-in-law and her family are going to be vacationing in Estes Park this coming week.  We'll be visiting with them in shifts due to our mixed up work and school schedules. My sister-in-law's son is Ian.  He is one of the 'Western Oompas'.   I love my sister-in-law and her husband, but its Ian I can't wait to see and hug and squish again.  He's 8 years old now.  I hope he still likes hugs and squishes. 

And how about them BRONCOS?  Now, before anyone gets all excited and tries to talk stats with me, forget it.  I don't have all of the NFL teams memorized, I can't tell you who holds the record for career touchdowns or who tied who with season rushing yards.  What I can tell you is that I'm a loyal hometown BRONCOS fan, win or lose.  Sooooooooo, how about them BRONCOS?
