The One with Greetings from CO

Saturday, July 11, 2009

If waking up at 4:30am isn't a crime, I don't know what is. We were on the road by 5:30am and the sun was just coming up. One of these days I'm going to get out my camera's instruction manual and figure out how to make it do what I want it to do. But for now, alls I got is a blurry picture of our early morning departure.There's a stretch of long and straight road as far as the eye can see.
We brought Jadis the bird along. He offered us quite a bit of entertainment. Like pickin' his nose.
And giving himself a head massage on the keys. Eyes closed and everything. Aaaaawj yeah.
The sign says it all.
I'll give you $5 to lick our front bumper. Maybe $6.
We saw one of them Bumblebee cars in Vail. You know, the yellow car from Transformers. Sunglasses never stay on long with Jadis around. I know some people probably think it's gross and weird to have a bird crawling all over your head. But it's taught me patience so I hope that translates to patience with our future children.
This might not seem like much of a view, but it's nice to finally see giant civilization after driving through the mountains for seven hours.
Chris says this house was in one of the Charlie's Angels movies. Cool beans. I think it looks like it's from The Jetsons.
We had a delicious fondue dinner, played some games and now here I am with toothpicks keeping my eyelids open so I can blog. Just kidding, that would hurt.


  1. You should bring a box of wires for your bird to chew on long trips like this.

  2. I have never tried fondue, but I am thinkin' that I would LOVE IT. That is next on my list of things. =) Have fun in CO, and I am glad that ya'll made it safely there.

  3. Those pics of the road bring back memories of driving to Fruita CO. There are miles of neverending straight road!
    I love that you two weren't alone on the ride!

  4. I think that house was also in Woody Allen's Sleeper. Cheap Japanese flying packs!

  5. It was, indeed, also in Sleeper.
