Goodbye to Malcom

Malcom 1993 - 2008

We lost our beloved Malcom on the first of this month.  She will be missed.  She came to us when she was one, pregnant and full of love (8 lovely puppies). She have given the whole family nothing but love and attention.  She was the alpha dog in the house.  Milo misses her.  He still waits for her at the top of the stairs at night.  They use to "go to bed" with a treat, together, every night.  Janice and I were with her when she took her last breath.  It was one of the hardest things I have ever experienced.

Last weekend Jan and I went to Estes Park for a get-a-way weekend.  Estes Park, Colorado is nestled in the Rocky Mountains, west of Loveland, Colorado just a short 30 miles north of our home.  Even though it is winter, we found some fun things to do.  We dined at the Estes Park Brewery and sampled several beers.  My first visit to Estes Park was in the summer of 1959 for Boy Scout camp.  On the north edge of the community is the famous Stanley Hotel.  It is the hotel where Stephen King got the inspiration for his book, The Shining.  It was the location for the filming of the TV show of the same name and the movie Dumb and Dumber.  Even though I have visited the town for almost 50 years, other than when our band played there this last fall, I had never been inside the Stanley.  We took the haunted ghost tour.  We learned all of the stories about the Stanley's founders and all of it's famous guests. It was quite an experience.  I encourage you to click on the link and go for a quick visit.  Stanley Hotel

Have a great week.  I'll try to capture a picture of my "snow drag" for my nest post.
