Wife said she'd take me for a weekend outing to Aspen. Yaaaaay!

Had to leave and miss the draft. Boooooo.

Got to drive through beautiful mountain scenery, including Leadville, the highest city in the U.S. Yaaaaaay!

Mountain pass was closed for snow. Had to backtrack 75 miles to take another route. Boooooo.

Had nice weather on our new route. Drove with the top down on the apricot Beamer. Yaaaaaaay!

Ran into a massive cloud of insects next to the river in Glenwood Springs. Whap! Whap! Whap! Hits to the face around the windshield. Boooooo.

Got to Aspen. Yaaaaaay!

Aspen is expensive. Boooooooo.

Got a great deal on the hotel and got upgraded to a suite for free. Yaaaaaay!

Turned on the TV, and ESPN refused to provide any coverage of the Chiefs. Boooooooo.

We got Derrick Johnson! Yaaaaaaay!

We drafted a punter? Boooooo.

Wait. We drafted a punter? Yaaaaaaay!

Woke up in the middle of the night with a splitting altitude headache. Booooooo.

Hunted around, found pills in wife's overnight kit. Yaaaaaaay!

Couldn't tell what the pills were. One had an E on it. Excedrin? Or Estrogen? Booooo.

Took the E pill. Headache went away. Yaaaaaaaay!

My nipples are bigger now. Booooooo.

Didn't have to shave this morning, got breakfast in bed at hotel. Yaaaaaay!

Wife wanted to go shopping in Aspen. Booooooo.

I found a cool-looking pair of jeans on sale. Yaaaaay!

They cost $1,300. Boooooo.

Wife found a painting she liked at an art gallery. Yaaaaaay! Uh-oh.

Wife bought it. Yikes. Boooooo.

Wife agreed to fund painting out of our landscaping project budget, and it really is a nice painting. Yaaaay!

Had to leave Aspen. Booooo.

Beautiful snowfall in high country. Gorgeous, fantastic scenery. Yaaaaay!

Snow turned into blizzard. Booooo.

Several jerky drivers ran off road and overturned, blocking traffic behind us and giving us no traffic coming down mountain. Yaaaay!

Snow plow decided to drop gravel, pelting the apricot Beamer with huge rocks at no notice. Boooooo.

Got home. Yaaaaaay!

Checked draft, never heard of most players. Booooo.

Re-read about Derrick Johnson. Yaaaaaay!

Were they really 1,300 dollars? Not that I doubt you but exageration sometimes adds intruige to a story.

That was one expensive pair of jeans. Technically, they were $1,298, but I rounded up.

Well, she is at the hospital right now and the boys are staying here...

As usually is the case, if he would have wore a helmet he would just be bitching about wrecking his bike.

Heh, I once an accident outside Chicago, where the firemen had to use the hoses (high pressure) to wash the splattered remains of a "racer" after the race had gone wrong. Some people...

This is why I won't ride. I'm far too cavalier and fearless for my own safety. I've seen what a nasty wreck can do. I don't want anything to do with that.

Yeah, I considered myself pretty safe for a rider, always had gear on, tried to stay in my limits, etc...

This guy, I guess, has always been a bit crazy on a bike. He just got his dream bike earlier that morning, with a loan from his sister. He has been over at his girlfriends 5 mintutes before and was talking about the crash bars were going to be the death of him if he didn't take them off. Well, he ignores his own thought and clips one and wrecks the bike. His sister is dsitraught for loaning him the money for the bike.

No fun meeting someone's family you have yet to meet in a situation like that.

Wow, I've been in some swanky Manhatten stores and the most expensive pair of jeans I've ever seen was around $500. That's just nuts.

Aspen IS expensive.

LOL! I ask myself that question often, and if I had the chance I would go back and kick him in the nuts just to make sure I deserved this.

Some people have drunk funny stories, I have my life sucks more stories. Yeah, I'm fun to hang out with.

took the wife and daughter out mushroom hunting yesterday afternoon. spend a little quality time and show off my woodsman abilities.

while displaying my strength by pushing over a rotten tree, a limb breaks off and drops about 30' and lands on my head, knocking me out cold and ripping my ear half off.

the girls drag me out of the woods and take me to the emergency room where i got a dozen stitches, tetnus shot and observation. the bill for this will probably equal the cost a pair of rain man jeans.

Hehe. "That's using your head", "At least it hit you where it would do the least amount of damage", "Can you hear me know?"

Yup, I could see it.
