BOB AND CAMILLE MAKING THEMSELVES AT HOME
Updated through January 31, 2006
CLEANING OUT THE FRAC TANK
Steve takes his turn in the tank. Capitalizing on warm weather, Bob, Eric and Steve cleaned out the rented tank and returned it, saving the company the exorbitant monthly rental fee.
Bob volunteered to help Shaun move two new cars from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. Bob took this photo of Shaun ahead of him from inside his car. For more on this story go to Cross Country Road Trip
A FEW DAYS LATER
They drove into Berthoud and spent the night. Shaun, always a welcome guest, relaxes before dinner on January 7th.
Camille took the opportunity to spend the night with Shirley, her good friend of 25 years.
Shirley showed off some new additions to her art collection, walking sticks that have fallen under Fred's artistic spell.
IF IT WERE A SNAKE, IT WOULD HAVE BIT YOU
This was my favorite because it looked so real.
SAYING GOODBYE TO A BYGONE ERA
In the morning, Shirley and Camille went over to Studio B for one last time. Shirley sold the building after many years of use as a recording studio and home.
ONE LAST LOOK
The studio and this tree, which Shirley planted years ago will eventually go the way of all things that stand in the way of progress.
Amy stopped to pet this urban beast on our way to lunch.
Emily, Amy and Molly sit across the booth from us while we wait for lunch at a trendy downtown bistro on January 14.
LATER THAT AFTERNOON
Mahlon, Camille and Bob sat on Mahlon's couch to watch the Broncos in the playoffs. Our mood started out good and got even better when our team won.
This lot lost four mature shade trees this month in the name of, you guessed it - progress. The developer fought to avoid paying the town the value of these trees as is the town policy. I'm still trying to track down the outcome. Stay tuned.
BUN IN THE OVEN
Joe gave Bob a cookbook put out by the restaurant they ate in while Bob and Shaun were in California. Using the book, Bob made this baked form of Seitan. Sliced, dipped in batter, breaded with Panko breadcrumbs and fried, it is YUMMY!
Bob and Eric share a good spot in the sun while they chow down on their funnel cakes. For more Stock Show and Rodeo pictures, go to Looking at all the Animals
MEANWHILE, IN SWITZERLAND...
Steve and his sculpting team took a block of snow and turned it into the Common Thread.
On January 29th, Bob created this fantastic meal of soup and pico de gallo (beak of the cock) salad. The soup is tomato-based and blended with corn tortillas, then garnished with oven-fried corn tortilla strips, sour cream, cheddar cheese and black olives. Yum!
