Two Months Later

Dear Ones, a correction - I mentioned in these posts that I had been married 27 years. A pity as it was 37, now closer to 38. However, what's a few years between best friends? A decade or so ago Mary and I dealt with the illness of her dad and from then after returning a struggle. I was lucky to find work after returning from Dallas, more fortunate to have landed the position that pulled us away from the homestead in southern Colorado to a new life in northern Colorado. Though our only son was far away, we found ourselves close to the four daughters. "I can't believe we're living in Loveland" and "Back to the 'Burbs" were frequent outbursts the first two years, even after Mary found a remarkable little foreclosure with lots of space I grew to love. However, it is all up in the air, that old black magic pales and I have to re-tool and re-market myself for one more trip up the sigmoid curve - look it up!
For now, we are back to the homestead to prepare the grounds for the best wedding experience we can muster for our second ranch wedding. Not ironically, who can foresee the weather, climate or fire season, it occurs during another dry spell marked by smoke and fire bans. Let 'em try to stop us from roasting marshmallows!
