While kayaking down the Blue River below the Dillon Dam today, one of my best friends seriously asked me about never talking to her Mom again. Her Mom is super critical of everything she does, dates, and wears. My best friend is totally normal in all ways; and her Mom is a generation ago (now it’s measured by 2-3 generations because of all the advancements in everything). My advice as I rec. to my clients at Fitted Bindings is to sit tight, UNDER REACT, be friendly, inform Mom of the good things in your life and TALK to her. My best friends is NOT pg., NOT on drugs, has a job and a nice guy who works very hard and loves her. Tune in to Mom instead of running. Go to Denver shopping, take a hike up one of the 14ers or Colorado Trail, or have a simple outdoor picnic. I know clients that haven’t spoken to family members in years; and they are taking that to their grave. It is NOT worth it! Do what God or your faith would tell you to do – no matter how difficult. Love life. Co Girl
There has a been a subtle hint of winter involving the weather patterns the past few days. Leaves are shrinking and becoming a touch colorful (Aspens). A dusting of snow atop the mountains and declining temperatures at night. Sharpen thy skis/boards!
Lots of rain and occasionally some high elevation snow has led to a superb kayaking this year. Downtown, our twenty-something song/dance group, has led the way with many new recruits enjoying trips down the Blue, Snake and Eagle rivers. We’ve paddled some feeding streams additionally. Love it !! Co Girl

Rockies are falling out of the sky. Maybe a resurgence to get into the playoffs. We’re barely the second wild card team presently after such a great start. It would be such a great thing for all of Colorado to get into MLB playoffs and win a World Series. Thoughts?
