September is almost gone and it has been a busy month. DMP and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. Several years ago, we discussed a big party for our 40th, thinking that with no children to host a 50th and we might be too old manage one 10 years down the road. Somehow it managed to slip up on us and take us by surprise. We did manage to give ourselves the gift of new patio furniture and have finally had a morning that was cool enough to enjoy it:
So no party but our usual trip to the San Juans in SW Colorado. We both breathe a bit more deeply--at that altitude you have to--when we see Mt. Abrams as we drive from the airport at Montrose to Ouray.
