Last Day of Rest in the Denver Area

(Buckley AFB, Aurora, CO)  Hi 91 Lo 65 --  I'm crabby when I got up this morning, and felt sorry for Jim. My ear is still closed, it hurts and my headache won't go away till it opens up. Like most people I'm not a fun person when I'm not feeling good. I kept heat on the side of my head most of the day. I hope it opens before we head up Pikes Peak.

Jim had a great time last night at the Colorado Rockies game at Coors Field. He's checking off his list of stadiums as we move around the country. He was worried about rain, but it didn't happen. This was his view of downtown Denver from he concourse of the stadium.

And here's the view from his seat.

It was a day of switching TV channels. We switched back and forth between the Olympics, the NASCAR race from Indianapolis, and Jim's Cardinals baseball game. It's one of those times we needed three TV's going at once. We'll be watching more Olympics tonight.

I spent most of the day playing computer games, chatting, texting with the kids and generally communicating with people through technology. I'm the type who has to stay connected. I also had calls from family and friends, wanting to catch up on our travels and the area we're in now.

This is our last "in house" day here in the Denver area. We've got one more place we want to see tomorrow, then on Tuesday morning we're moving on to Colorado Springs.

Try blowing a hair dryer into your ear or gets some ear drops at the drug store.

Hope you feel better Dee. Enjoy Pikes Peak. If you're not feeling up to it, take another day off and get better. Enjoy and have fun!!!

Like Mike says, I wouldn't go up Pikes Peak unless your ear opens up...! We really enjoyed the cog train ride when we were there, but it is a tad pricey... But I think they are charging $40 a car to go up that way now too. And your senior pass didn't work........ for us anyway...

Go up in the morning before the clouds build up during the day... You'll be able to see more...
