JUST LANDED ABOUT 1 HOUR AGO AND DROVE TO BROWNS PALACE IN DOWNTOWN DENVER WHICH IS QUITE FAMOUS AND WAS OPENED IN1892.  HAVING SOME SEAFOOD CHOWDER IN THE TAVERN.  I HAVE NEVER SEEN SO MANY PEOPLE WEARING COWBOY HATS.  APPARENTLY THEY HAVE THE 'STOCK SHOW' HAPPENING NOW WHICH IS THE BIGGEST CATTLE, SHEEP, PIG, ETC. SHOW IN THE WORLD AND IS OVER 100 YEARS OLD AND WILL CONTINUE FOR 9 MORE DAYS FROM NOW.  

THE WAITER JUST INFORMED ME THAT THE PRIZE WINNING BULL WILL BE ON DISPLAY IN THE LOBBY FOR 6 HOURS ON THE LAST DAY, SUNDAY AND IS USUALLY AUCTIONED OFF FOR OVER $120,000.00.  MY VERY FRIENDLY WAITER, DON WHO HAS WORKED HERE FOR YEARS AND IS A FOUNTAIN OF KNOWLEDGE HAS JUST INFORMED ME THAT 6 YEARS AGO THE BULL ON DISPLAY IN THE LOBBY BROKE LOOSE AND HEADED OUT DOWNTOWN BUT WAS EVENTUALLY CAPTURED UNHARMED.  I AM SITTING IN THE SEAT OF THE TABLE THAT JOHN WAYNE SAT IN IN 1972.

EVERY PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES SINCE 1892 HAS STAYED HERE, EXCEPT CALVIN COOLIDGE WHO WOUNDN'T TRAVEL WEST FARTHER THAN MISSOURI AND SO FAR PRSIDENT OBAMA.  PRESIDENT EISENHOWER AND HIS WIFE ATE AT THIS RESTAURANT EVERY SATURDAY DURING THE SUMMER AND SAT AT THE TABLE IN THE CORNER RIGHT BEHIND ME AS THEY HAD A SUMMER RESIDENCE IN DENVER.  

ANYWAY IT IS AFTER 1:00 A.M. AND SHANNON AND MARZ ARE FAST ASLEEP, I AM FLYING SOLO.  DRIVING TO BRECKENRIDGE TOMORROW.  THERE IS NO SNOW IN THE TOWN OF DENVER, BUT APPARENTLY LOTS IN BRECKENRIDGE.  BOTH SHANNON AND MARZ WILL BE ATTENDING A 4 DAY SEMINAR ON DIABETES WHICH LOOKS QUITE INTENSE.  I HAVE DECIDED TO PASS ON THIS ONE IN FAVOUR OF MORE TIME ON THE SLOPES.  I USUALLY ATTEND THE CLASSES EVEN THOUGH I HAVE RETIRED FROM PERSONALLY TREATING PATIENTS.

WE JUST MISSED A HUGE BLIZZARD IN BRECKENRIDGE AND LOOKS LIKE SUNNY SKIES AND WARM TEMPERATURES FOR THE NEXT WEEK.  THE SUN GODS HAVE SHONE UPON US ONCE AGAIN!  NO FRESH POWDER BUT ENJOYABLE SKIING CONDITIONS.  YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU WILL GET AND CONITIONS IN THE MOUNTAIN ARE ALWAYS UNPREDICTABLE.  IT IS ALWAYS A TRADEOFF.

DENVER IS NOW SOMEWHAT FAMOUS FOR HAVING OVER 40 OUTLETS WHERE YOU CAN LEGALLY BUY 'POT' OR CANNIBUS.  LOCALS ARE ALLOWED 1 OUNCE AND TOURISTS ARE ALLOWED 1/4 OUNCE.  ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH IN COLORADO!  THE STATE OF COLORADO  ADOPTED JOHN DENVER'S SONG AS THE STATE SONG IN 1976.

ANYWAY, OFF TO BED, EARLY BREAKFAST AND A 2-3 HOUR DRIVE TO BRECKENRIDGE.  DRIVING THROUGH THE MOUNTAINS IS ALWAYS A PLEASURABLE EXPERIENCE.
