There has been some fun and relaxation, much of it vintage style, this summer; I just haven't taken the time to write about it with all else going on. So, now for some catching up:
Linda -- don't you love this little hosiery repair kit?
Vintage Market Days, and we were very impressed! Part of it took place in an actual, very large barn.
The staff photographer took us out on property to take some head shots of my coworkers, so I took along my camera and got some pretty photos of The Broadmoor, too:
On another day, Dennis and I went to an Air Force Falcons football game and did a little late morning tailgating. That Beehive in my hand is my newest, favorite beer -- brewed locally. Don't judge me -- it was 5:00 somewhere!
It was another very lovely day for the game; we won against Abilene Christian, too!
And, I made a trip to the State Fair in Pueblo and enjoyed the Creative Arts on display:
However, the real reason for our visit to the Fair was to see Huey Lewis and the News in concert! I am a fan from long ago, having seen the band at least 4 times before when I was young and in my 20's. Before the concert, I looked up the first time in a scrapbook:
On that page, clockwise: a flyer for the free concert, an up close photo I took of Huey Lewis, the song list that I took off of the speakers on stage and asked Huey Lewis and his then-guitarist, Chris Hayes, to sign, and a balloon from the event.
Not a great photo -- but you get the idea! The concert was AWESOME! To quote Huey, the heart of rock and roll is still beating.
We went with friends and we all had a rocking good time. It really cheered me up -- and you know that has been much-needed.
Who is this white and orange kitten with Paul Simon, you ask? Can you guess? More later!
