I am glad that so many of you are enjoying readying my blog. I received a surprising phone call this warm July evening from my old high school head master Warren Witherell. It was GREAT to hear from him, I always enjoy his stories. I was very happy to catch up with him, hopefully we will be able to meet up for a meal while I am back east.
It is sad that such a great program like Crested Butte Academy had to close their doors. I guess it is for the best, I feel really bad for all the students that have to deal with the scary feeling of not having a school to go right now, it is shocking. I know when CBA filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy everything concerning the students was in a complete craze. I wish the best of luck to all the kids that have to hunt around for schools. I do have to admit that CBA was the best thing that ever happened to me. I learned so much about myself that I would have never learned in a public school situation, so I am very thankful for being able to have such a great opportunity.
Also, it is a major bummer that Western State College just lost all their funding for the ski team. I know that there were a lot of kids that depended on that program and that dedicated a lot of time and effort to skiing for WSC. I always liked training with/ around the WSC ski team while I was at CBA because there were some amazing skiers, and the college boys (Graham and Luke) in speed suits, I mean com'mon! ha!
I wish I was a millionaire. Or at this point in my life a $1500aire...ha!
Below are some RANDOM pictures I've snapped in the last couple days:
Ah, the wonderful world of BJ's. Okay, honestly why is there a store named this?
The meat department at the co-op. Yum.... protein! We made some GREAT burgers from this...red meat reminds me of summer time. (since its the only time I can eat it because I have no clue how to grill, so I leave grilling up to my mom and Ed when I come and visit in the summer...ha!)
I guess it runs in the family....
80+ degrees with the essentials.
Obviously I needed ice cream, sooooo I went and met up with the the cows at Ben and Jerrys. I was thinking...scary I know...that the artist that created the B & J's cow (created by Woody Jackson) goes around and paints each mural or is there a GIANT stencil? are they "TM"-ed? so that the person that copied the cow stencil on to the building can take direct credit for the cow painting? ohhhh boy...
(ps. I had ONE chocolate cheesecake...it was a hard choice between that cinnabuns and mint chocolate chip....ahhhh decisions!)
BUT....back to the art thing...
