    A belated good morning to all. My day started with a bang. At seven this morning, my security guard called me about a "situation" in the parking garage. Turns out that someone left their car in neutral and didn't set the parking brake. Car later rolls out of its space and blocks traffic. Had to push the dang thing back and then chock the tires.

    And apparently there is some debate type thing going on tonight in town. The entire fracking interstate is going to be closed. Makes me glad to live on the OTHER side of town.

    And in other Denver news, we are looking at a high of 80 today, 50 tomorrow. Typical autumn in the Rockies.

    Party on gang!

      Yes a busy morning you had. Reminds one time I was playing pool. When I left, my car was "stolen." I finally scanned the parking lot and it apparenly had slowly rolled about 50 feet and landed right in another spot. Never forgot the parking break after that.

    Last night I had the closest thing to Chesapeake Bay crabs since I was there. Man...I miss Baltimore for that reason.

      I grew up on the bay and me and my siblings went crabbing every week. I know what you mean, I love those things. I think it is the only seafood I like. Well, besides Long Johns. : )

        Lol. Googles the Rosecliff Mansion Newport...seems the fine Vanderbilt family liked this area and liked to shoe off their vast wealth. I'm here with a co-worker and have some free time tomorrow afternoon, so we are going on a mansion tour!
