Wow, this place certainly…hasn’t changed much since I last posted. Well, Mr. Wilker’s kept the light on. Props to the boss for the CPR. There, I think I sucked up enough.
Oh hai Denver! How are you? I am fine. It’s finally October and the countdown until the first snow of the year is here. Isn’t that exciting? Not really. In all honesty, Denver’s weather patterns are 1) unpredictable and 2) really not worth talking about (you hear that Dicker?) because in reality people who’ve been in the city for more than ten years know exactly what every fall will bring and what happens on Halloween. Unless Doomsday comes, every kid from Aurora to Westminster will be wearing winter coats over and under their pretty pretty princess costumes. It’s just the way it is.
Let’s see. Nuggets are not even in play. Avalanche, nothing special there. Broncos? The Choking Donkey’s are still doing what they do every year. Rockies? Don’t even get me started. I’m not up on the whole CU/CSU whole sports situation.
So for the most part Denver’s just the same ole’ same ole’. The DNC glow is finally faded and compared to the RNC, our city came out like Angels singing in the Heavenly Choir. Nobodies starting the controversies lately. I mean, there are a few ex-Broncos making headlines, but that’s pretty normal. The (Non) Recreate-68 crowd has faded into the background again. Columbus Day went without a hitch, cry or complaint. Usually there’s screams, yells and all kinds of straw man arguments hoisted from both sides that by the time the event comes around it’s like the North and South have reignited their storied Hatfield and McCoy war all over again.
So, Denver’s back to being the one horse cow town we’ve been known as every since the first DNC here in 1908. To be honest, part of me is glad things are calmer and quieter. Mind you, the nationwide political scene is bubbling over. I mean in the house I share with five others I’m the lone (R). On our lawn is a Obama and Udall yard sign. And in my window is a McCain 2008 shirt. So it’s not really quiet in that sense.
Plus I wore that shirt around my DU neighborhood today and got so many crusty looks I lost count.
I’ve got more posts, photos and things to come. Hows the Denver Fall going for anyone? Those leaves are a changin’…and it’s beaautiful.
