    Latest Happenings...

    We went to Utah over Thanksgiving. We have a timeshare in Park City that we seldom get to use lately. And while it's quite a drive 'down the hill' it does make for a really nice out of the way retreat while vacationing.

    This trip was extra special because we got a chance to have dinner and visit with our DS. I still feel so lost without him around the house. I wish I had better prepared myself for the day he would leave. Oh well, I'm getting that wake up call now. LOL.

    Anyway, he looks great. He seems to be very happy and he had lots to share with us. The biggest surprise was his 'new' truck. WOW!!! Quite an accomplishment in just a few short weeks. It has finally dawned on me that I spent so much time pampering him and making things easy for him that I totally failed to see how much he needed some independence.

    These are pictures of 'Historic' Main Street. I just love the little old-fashion looking store fronts in the older part of town. They line both sides of the street for about a 1/2 mile and are just full of cutesy little shops, pricey boutiques, eateries, and pubs. The newer part of Main Street just doesn't have small town feel to it with its more modern architecture.

    We usually start at the bottom of town and walk up. That way it's downhill on the way back. And of course there is the Trolley for those days when it's just too cold, or walking isn't appealing. LOL.

    I am always amazed by the mountains after being away from them for so long. Unless you're actually there, it's difficult to really appreciate their size. And 'steep' can become a very foreign concept. This farm house and barn are massive, yet it's dwarfed by the mountains behind it. And check out these houses. The two in the center (behind the tree) are built into a vertical rock wall.

    We also ran across these curious looking homes/apartments during our travels in Park City. They struck me as something right out of the Twilight Zone movie. Look how crooked they are. Somehow they just don't look safe to me. DH and I kept waiting for the nursery rhyme "little crooked man" to come walking out of one of them.

    We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at my DB's home. In fact, the whole day was really nice. We don't get to visit often enough. And the kids are growing like weeds! I feel like I'm missing so much from one trip to another.

    Another bonus on this trip was getting a chance to meet Cat and her DH, Gary. They are just the nicest people. We discovered over drinks and munchies that we had a great deal in common. Far more than I would have expected. From raising boys, to motorcycles, to throwing darts.

    And very sadly, also including the recent loss of dear pets to spleen cancer. The good news on that is that they have a new little girl furbaby to fill their hearts with joy. They've named her Annie and lovingly refer to her as "The Little Pill."

    Thanks to Mindy, I've found myself on the constant look-out for "COW" stuff. So, when I saw this in Park City I just had to share it with her. This is inside the Java Cow coffee house/ice cream parlor/gift shoppe. The entire place is full of any kind of cow item you can imagine. I even picked up a couple of little goodies for her. Now, if she will send me her address I will mail them off to her!!!!!

    Saturday morining we wrapped things up, boarded our plane and headed back to flat country. And on Sunday morning DH and I were up working on the crossword puzzle with Fritz settled comfortably into his favorite chair. Awe, it's good to be home!

    Thanks for taking the time to share our adventures with us. And until Next time...Happy Needling!!!

    OMG you posted our picture! Ha, that's okay - I always look like me in a picture - weird - maybe we live in the Twilight Zone houses!

    I'm so glad your trip was wonderful, it REALLY was great to meet you and Gene and share stories with you! It's a must-do-again thing!

    All your pictures are so good, and yes, I bet Fritz is happy to have you home!

    I love your pictures of Park City. In all my trips to Utah, I've never been there. I, too, love the mountains. I've almost always lived around them, and it seems difficult to figure out directions without mountain shapes to clue me in. =)
