We just spent the past two days celebrating Stan's birthday, and boy did we have fun! Thursday night we went out for hamburgers then over to the movie theaters for the live broadcast of Prairie Home Companion. It's one of Stan's favorite shows on NPR. It's usually on Saturday nights (6:00pm here in Colorado) but they did a special Thursday evening broadcast and we got tickets to see it live. It was a blast watching the sound effects guys, listening to the music, Guy Noir, Lives of the Cowboys, and of course Garrison Keillor telling us all the News from Lake Woebegon. We decided our family was just like that---the woman is strong (me), the man is good looking (Stan), and the children are above average. You betcha!
Friday night we went to the smokehouse in Woodland Park and partook of the best danged BBQ Beef Ribs anywhere! They smoke them for days, then grill them up and .... YUMMO! Kevin had BBQ Buffolo/Beef sandwich, which he pronounced amazing as well.
By the time we got back home down the mountain we were full and happy and singing. We had a key lime pie waiting for us (Stan's birthday "cake") and cards and presents. Stan had a wonderful time and we got to go along with him. Birthdays are GREAT!
When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? To surrender dreams--this may be madness; to seek treasure where there is only trash. Too much sanity may be madness! But maddest of all--to see life as it is and not as it should be.
I have been married for over 27 years to my husband Stan. We have two sons, AJ (26) and Kevin (24). We have two crazy dogs named Jasper and Riley. I love my life, my family and have a strong faith that directs me.
