Awesome pictures Crystal!  I bet that is something that you will definitely miss about Colorado. 

Utah does have some great places for kodak moments. 😉

I saw my lovely dentist today. I had two cavities filled, an upper and bottom both on my right hand side.  I’m frozen from my eye to my chin. Can’t wait for it to wear off, so I can feel a my sore jaw. 

 

Glass of wine helps a lot....I know that for sure!  😉   Two crowns right next to each other...owwwie!

I usually bid $20-30 dollars over the min bid, assuming that others may just make the min bid and my additional $$ will be the difference.  I've never won, so I have no idea how good this strategy is.  Don't tell anyone else. 😁

 

Ditto here...with same results..  😉

I was talking to the hotel manager and looked down and saw the prettiest meringue rosettes. While he was talking, I picked one up and took a bite. 
It was butter. Pure butter, and I had a mouthful of it. 
I stood there, nodding my head, and trying to swallow it without choking. 
I finally managed to chew, or melt, it in half, swallow half and then the other half. 
I’ll never know if he realized what happened, and was too polite to acknowledge it. 

This brings back a memory of when a friend and I had been out drinking one night and stopped at a Diner for some breakfast.  There was a small bowl on the table with..you guessed it, butter, but she thought it was ice cream, and took a big spoonful of it.  😁

A friend of mine went to a breakfast buffet. She was very thirsty and gulped down a glass of tomato juice. Except it was French dressing.

The garage build. (AKA man cave ) had been interrupted by rain lately. Now mind you we did not get any rain from Ida. But little nuisance storms.  So today the contractor sent a crew out to pump the water out above the footers so  concrete block could be laid.  They not only disturbed a ton a frogs in their new watering hole, but upset “The Cat” napping in her day   perch. ”. No worries once she gave them the evil eye the cat  went back to sleep.

After our hike on Saturday evening we were both ready for a swim at the hotel. We swam for a while and ended the evening in the hot tub and chatting with a couple from North Dakota who were just driving through for the day. 
 

We hit the hay for our early morning wake up on Sunday…5:15. 
 

I woke up first, took my shower and got mom up and moving. We arrived at Arches National Park gates at 6:30am and drove right through with no entry fee. The entrance to the park has crazy switchbacks going up the cliffs…i white knuckled it the whole way but we made it up and to our first stop: Park Avenue Trail. the sun was just barely coming up and we were the only humans around.511B6214-006C-413D-8DD4-6BA7DD1C2A41.thumb.jpeg.e20a0784dccf76d21add67230c366433.jpeg

I'm comfortable with Dani's thread and the people on here so I may just stick around here as long as Dani doesn't mind. 

 

Dani doesn't mind 😁

 

Dani welcomes any returning to cruising, whether is live, semi-live, half-live, quarter-live, or in retrospect [hindsight too] ...

 

In sum, Dani is roaring to be on a ship again 😉

Stunning pictures, Crystal!

 

@singinalot

 

Agree with all the above and all the others. Your mom is such a good sport, she deserves a huge hug.

 

Triple "yikes" about the hotel. On second thoughts, add two more yikes.

 

And, of course, thank you for enriching the thread with your amazing photos and movies 👍

 Thank you! ☺️ I was telling my mom that I like making the videos because I’ll be able to watch them years from now and feel like I’m experiencing it again
