Bout time heh?

Well, hello everyone. Here it is October and I am finally finding an evening or two to write a few lines about our summer and early fall experiences here in Bow. What follows below is a snippet of text and photos, that we hope you will enjoy “twofold.” 1. If you were kind enough to come out and visit us, you will see yourself in “action.” And, 2. If you couldn’t make it out, you will see what we were up to most of the time.

It was a crazy few months for sure. Believe it or not, from about July 1 through, September 5th, we had nearly 50 days of overnight family and friends!!! It was unbelievable! There were times when I dropped a folks off at the airport for their departure flight, and later that same day I picked up people coming in!! Deb was washing sheets and putting them on the bed just in the nick of time…lol.

Oh yeah, as of July 30 I was officially retired! WOW! Hard to believe but I’ll pass on all the details. Suffice to say I love it although with all our visitors it did not really sink in….but it is starting to now for sure. Ok, scroll down and enjoy. As you know, the way this blog works, as you go down, it will go back in time.

All work and no play is not the way to live. Deb and I have done a bit of recreation too. We play badminton in the driveway…no idea why but we both love doing that. We also climbed Sauk Mt. – a nice 4 mile round trip hike that rewarded us with fantastic fall colors and picture perfect mountain scenery….. We also took another 4 mile hike up part of Mt. Larrabee which is located about a 5 minute drive from our house. Great hike, great views and a place where people hang glide. The day we were there we got some pics of folks taking the plunge….tempting heh? And, for what it is worth, we had a fair amount of snow up high this past weekend so who knows what our next hike may be like?

And, Happy Halloween! Gotta love the country life here. Pumpkin stands along almost every road. I got ours for a whopping $1.00 per pumpkin with proceeds going to the Bow booster club!

So, all in all, think we been busy? Have a look and see what you think. We think its been a blast!
