Colorado Fires

As we were leaving Loveland, Colorado on Sept 11, 2012, this was how the smoke looked way off in the mountains and later we got this picture of how the fire was spreading. It was a good thing we had the wedding when we did as I think a lot of the area has been burned away now. The Rocky Mountain National Park was so beautiful when we were there but now a great deal has burned. I feel so sorry for all the people who are losing their homes and have already lost their homes.

Forest Fires

While we were in Colorado to attend the wedding of our grandson, a forest fire started. We were driving up the mountain to Estes Park, when my son-in-law said he wondered what all that white smoke was. That was the day of the wedding. The next day we went to Rocky Mountain National Park and we didn't see anything from high up there. However, when we went home the next day, the fire had really spread and when we got north of Ft. Collins we could smell the smoke way across Wyoming to Nebraska. It is a terrible fire, as well as, many others in the western states. The best they can do is try and keep it away from the houses. There is no stopping it.

Fine Mailboxes

My daughter recently bought a new home. They have been doing so much landscaping to make it look beautiful. She planted many flowers, bushes, etc. They have a lovely porch and she bought furniture and cushions for the porch. But then they looked at the mailbox that came with the house and it just did not look attractive at all. So in checking the Internet for personalized mailboxes, she came across this website and found just what she was looking for. The weatherproof, handcrafted mailboxes were just what she was looking for. They have been doing this fine work for 65 years, a record to be very proud of. It was not hard to find just what she was looking for in a fine custom made personalized mailbox. It is an asset to the looks of their new home and it keeps their mail safe and dry no matter what the weather. Their prices are great and there is free shipping right to your home along with a 30 day low price guarantee. It is a win win situation for a lovely mailbox. And they also make many other mailboxes to fit other needs.

Good Neighbor

I have good neighbors. This one lady will do just about anything for you. It was nice and cool this morning. We had a good rain the night before and the ground was wet. I talked to her to see if she would help me weed my flower bed. She took her dog home and came right over. I was taking a waste basket to put the weeds in and there she was busy weeding already. It looks great. The weeds were taller than the flowers.

A Fun Time in Colorado

Here is our little great granddaughter high in Rocky Mountain National Park way above Estes Park. It was so cold and we saw snow in places. It was very beautiful though and something I think she will always remember. She was flower girl at her uncle's wedding and did a good job of it. It was great fun.

We took a long vacation to Colorado. Our grandson got married in Estes Park. It was just beautiful up there in the mountains. We certainly enjoyed all the festivities leading up to a beautiful wedding. I just loved watching the young people as they danced. The air is thin at over 7,000 feet and don't know how they could dance so long and hard without a lot of oxygen in the air but they did and it was fun to watch.

Wave Home Solutions

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Wave Home Solutions for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

We live in a small town.  This area is lower than the surrounding areas and the town has been well known for almost every home having a wet basement.  Because of this, we use every means we can to relieve the wet, damp odor in our basement.  We have two sump pumps that pump excess water out of the house but that is not all we use.  We also use a dehumidifier that runs constantly almost all year round.  It is expensive but we feel it is  necessary to keep the basement as dry as we can.  It does not work completely because we still have damp walls and mold forms and has to be cleaned up.  I know with the air conditioner and furnace exchanges of air in our home that the germs in the basement are coming upstairs as well.  I have heard it said that the air we are breathing upstairs can be worse than that in the basement.  Gases such as radon are common here too.  What we need is  Wave Home Solutions.  With the wave purification, it gets rid of the dampness and gasses forming in our basement and sends them outside, bringing new fresh air into the upstairs, which ultimately flows to the basement and before you know it, your home air is clean and fresh and healthy.  And it only costs pennies a day. They have a good guarantee too on their product and parts.  We do not want to continue to risk the health of our family any longer.  With 24/7 fresh air in our home, I know it will eliminate allergies and prevent asthma.  It also eliminates all the work of emptying the dehumidifier which takes up a great deal of time and you have to keep checking it to be sure you empty it on time.  No more of that work with Wave Home Solutions.  It is so satisfying to know you are doing something so good for your family's health, breathing in fresh air year round, rather than gasses, mold, and damp contaminated air from your basement.

Nap Time

When the great grandchildren play outside for hours on the farm, they are ready for a good nap. Here you see them zonked out from all the fresh air and sunshine.

They will have a good nap and then they will be back out running and playing again in no time at all. These little cousins have so much fun together and get along so well together.
