OK no more politics, now or evah

Penrose ApplesTook a ride down to Penrose/Canon City area Wednesday. What a beautiful drive! This kid (26) bought an apple orchard a few years back and lost his entire crop to frost the first season. Anyway he's back for a second season and things are looking good. He said he loved growing up in Penrose,enough to stick around.

The Winery at Holy Cross
The first stop was the Winery at the Holy Cross Abbey in Canon City. They were crushing grapes and you would not believe the smell in the air. They were producing a rose called Wild Canon Harvest where they take any variety of local grape grown by townsfolk and make a blend. It comes out in November just before Thanksgiving and it sells like hotcakes. The best part about it if you give over 20 lbs of grapes your name is on the back label. How cool is that. There wines are not cheap but I bought 2 bottles and an Asian BBQ sauce.Yummy.

Goats at Bear CreekToday I photographed the goats in Bear Creek Park. They come once a year to eat up the weeds and keep the grasses low. They are so cute,cuter yet was the border collies used to herd them up.

You guessed it, Thursday was the first Survivor night and we had a great time. This is the finest show on TV hands down. Well probably not but we sure like it. We had steak and skewerd shrimp ( with asian BBQ sauce) and sides and we piled our plates and watched the show without a peep in the room except munching and the occasional grunt and moan for talking with our mouths full. I'll have to say it seems like a good crew with some other type of characters. I cannot stand the one dude who poured out the canteens and burnt his own team's socks while they slept. The guys a multi millionaire that just there to prove he can manipulate and will. He's an ass. (Almost got through a post without foul language) I did manage to drink an entire bottle of Holy Cross Syrah. I know foolish to do since it was a work night. But I got enough sleep so just a little worn out today.

Track and such
This is Maggie's BFF Cauleen. I take pictures of her too since her mom isn't able to make a fool of herself and walk around the field with long lenses.
Mags told her coach about her foot problems so her put her in shot put. She thought she was being punished and I told her what do you expect him to do? Have you measure the long jump? She did well coming in fourth. Maybe she'll run next week.
My Son Bubba is recovering from surgery from where they took extra tissue from his breasts. its called gynemastia and it effects a lot of boys. Usually they grow and it goes away or gets less but for him it didn't. Cyn said it was like getting a kid's braces you gotta take care of things like that so they can have a normal life without taking shit from cruel assholes. Anyway they took out a lot of tissue and he's doing well. Insurance didn't cover the surgery but we found the credit and were fortunate to have it. I feel bad for others that can't afford it, it wasn't cheap. If I ever get money and will form a foundation that pays for such things cause let me tell you it really matters, even if they say it doesn't, it does.
And because this post has been entirely too serious:
