Air and Space Museum – Denver

The Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum is located on the former Lowry Air Force Base in Denver, Colorado.

Yesterday, I was on a field trip with second and third graders and we were led by a former Navy officer who shared some personal experiences and talked about the different aircraft above and in front of us.

The museum offers a variety of programs including “access to the cockpit” where they allow people to sit planes and helicopters not normally available to civilians.

Continental Divide

I remember a John Belushi fish-out-of-water movie from the 1980s named Continental Divide. It may have been my first exposure to the beauty that is Colorado.

This exquisite view, snow capped peaks above tree line is something I appreciate every time I see it.

Halloween done perfectly (Piermont part one)

Playing tourist yesterday in a quaint New York town on the Hudson River, I saw this inviting display outside of a store. I’m not a fan of scary decorations, artificial cobwebs (since I work hard to get rid of real ones), or anything with blood & gore. This embodies my idea of Halloween. πŸŽƒ πŸ§‘πŸŒΌπŸŽƒπŸ§‘πŸŒΌ

Wish You Were Here

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love the library and getting a library card is always my first stop when I move to a new town. In the suburbs of Chicago were I lived for many years, my friends joked it was my version of “Cheers!” Meaning it’s the place where everybody knows my name.

The Boulder Colorado Library has a beautiful gallery space which features a new exhibit every month or six weeks. Currently on display is the handmade sweater exhibit called “Wish You Were Here.” These are a few of my favorites in the exhibit. I’m a frequent visitor to the library so I’ve seen this exhibit in solitude, with wool spinners gathered for a demonstration, and crowded during planned events. I’m sorry it will be leaving soon, but I look forward to what’s next.
