Go West My Friend...

We have been busy making all those finally arrangement for the Go West My Friend Trip. First Stop will be Colorado. Hubby and I met in Colorado. I lived there for six years, the longest I'd lived anywhere until now! I have a lot of memories from there. Most of my good friendship were made in Colorado. Daughter wants to go Water Water Rafting, guess I will attempt that, never have been. Then there is jet skiing ,haven't done that either. We will be visiting Cripple Creek, oh the memories of that place. When I was in my twenties I was very daring, to say the least. People thought I was this sweet young thing unable to do anything out of the Norm. Oh well, they were wrong!(hehehe). Here's a short story as I recall it. My girlfriend and I wanted to go out to Cripple Creek (hey Deb remember this). I believe we where driving my car, a Datson B210. So.. on the highway there was a couple of guys driving their car. They pulled up beside us and started shouting. wanting to know what was up we rolled down the window. The guys wanted to know where we were going! Okay here we lost our minds, we told them!! They said they needed to do something first but would like to meet us there. Can you Believe this!! Well I had been to Cripple Creek Several times so knew a saloon there called, Are you ready for this (hehehe) The Gilded Garter. All this conversation took place while driving the car on the interstate!! It was Crazy indeed. Yes we did meet those guys, turns out they lived close to us. We dated for a while after that, and No those guys are not our Hubby's. I looked at the map but did not see the Gilded Garter saloon, one thing for sure, if I find it I will post the photo.

  4. Sounds like you have a fun trip planned. Many of my family memembers live in Colorado along with some friends. I've never been, but would love to visit. I hear it's beautiful. You'll have to try the jet skiing. You'll love it. We have a Yamaha Waverunner and I can never get enough of that machine. Thanks for sharing your fun story of your younger years. It gave me a chuckle. I remember doing some similar things during my single years too. Such fun times. Thanks for stopping by today.

  5. LOL! It's crazy the things we could do back in the day. Now, you can't do that kind of stuff!

  6. Auntie E has been a friend of mine since 1975 and she was also a bridesmaid in my wedding in 1977, we lost track of one another for many years but found one another again through facebook. This woman has an excellent memory (or maybe I'm trying to forget how foolish we were when we were WACs in the Army). My husband says "young, dumb, and full of cum" (I believe that's meant specifically for men but you get the idea).

    Anyway, she's done a lot of planning for this trip and I hope she and her family have a super fantastic vacation trip.
