Exploring Colorado :: Day 2 :: Vail Village

Nobody died during Day 1, but that was just the travel day. Now we have our full complement of old folks in our party, and it's not long before constitution and health levels are running low. I should have brought some health potions! For our plans today, I wanted to visit Vail. I've heard a lot about the ski village at the feet of Vail

Exploring Colorado :: Day 1

Whew. I'm still recovering from my week's vacation last week in Denver and other higher elevations west of there. Initially, I had illusions that would do some writing while on vacation, but that never materialized. I tried to abandon my laptop as much as possible in order to partake of outdoor activities and beer-related activities. I'm not going to show any photos of airports and

Stickwork :: Creepy Huts in Vail, Co :: Monomad

As is my wont, I plan on milking my vacation to Colorado last week for steemit post fodder. I don't like posting crap, so I will try and be creative and interesting in my use of my memories and photography. Betty Ford Alpine Gardens This time, we have a photo from the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, which is a beautiful botanical garden tucked away high

Falling Back On The Horse :: Returning After a Week Away

I took almost exactly a week off from Steemit. Mostly because I was on a vacation of sorts to Denver, Colorado. For the most part, the timing of this vacation was good. There were things I was glad to be taken away from for a week while I enjoyed the beauty and heat and lack of oxygen in the Rocky Mountains. That said, like anything

Tears for Fears :: 50 Word Short Story

And with our Joan of Arc, @jayna, leading the 50 Word Story charge against...um...larger and more verbose stories (kind of lost the metaphor a bit), we're moving on to the next prompt in her 50 Word Story Challenge. Now we are offered the prompt word: tear. Some may recognize the story title as the name of an 80s pop band, Tear for Fears. (Man, don't

RV Bathroom Remodel :: Part 3

Bathroom drama is playing out in my house. RV bathroom drama, that is. I've been trying to wrap up this little facelift project for a while now, but with the 4th of July holiday on Wednesday here in the USA I had time to make further progress. Since I'm apparently serializing this project, the current chapter is my attempt to cut a new piece of

Reflections on Things Offline

As most regular steemit patrons know, the steemit blockchain was offline for many hours overnight. I'm not going to talk about the technical aspects of the downtime or the quick patch and resolution that brought the blockchain and website we love to hate back online. As a web developer (a technical person of sorts) I've always nurtured a mild fear of things being outside my

RV Bathroom Remodel :: Part 2

In the midst of a bunch of other projects, such as working on the brakes for my traveling Landwhale, I'm also trying to redo the bathroom into something less nasty. I started with the toilet, and other than the plumbing parts of the RV not fitting the toilet, and other than a part of the wall that hides some pipes and wires being in the

Lily of the Nile :: Agapanthus :: Color Challenge – Sunday Purple

Down in Florida at a recent trip to Disneyworld, the giant entry plaza to Epcot Center is full of banks of these Lily of the Niles (Lilies of the Nile? Lilies of the Niles? No idea...). They grow under the shade of smooth-trunked crepe myrtles, creating a vibrant view and pleasant aroma. As always, my guesses as to the genus and names of the various
