Summer ’05

Summer in Meeker is a short-lived thing, and this year it was very comfortable.  Sandi and I took several trips to see Joe and Anita in Missouri, even spent a lot of time looking at property to purchase.  In the end, nothing came of it as there isn’t much in the way of work there …

Update

Not much news recently.  As if you wanted to know, I had hernia surgery, all went well.  We have had a very mild winter so far, we’re in the middle of the second warm spell which is melting all previous snow causing a 2nd mid-winter ‘mud season’.  The last one melted so much snow that …

Got a new camera

After 10 years or so without a good 35mm SLR I finally bought a Canon EOS 20D Digital SLR.  I’m having a lot of fun taking more photos, especially with the Canon 100-400L USM IS telephoto lens.

Trip to Springfield, MO

I took a 6 day trip to Springfield, Missouri to visit Joe, Anita and Christina who have been living there for the past 10 years os so since moving out of California. 

Range Call ’04

I posted a bunch of photos taken at our Range Call celebration.  It is held every 4th of July (4 day event) and includes rodeo, parade, concert, dance and fireworks.  This year we hosted Steve Azar. One of the best parts is the re-enactment of the Meeker Massacre; the story of how Indian Agent Nathan …

We have a new baby!

After waiting 11 months we finally have our new baby pony.  Even before leaving California we tried to get Zanna pregnant but had little success with artificial insemination.  The original stud just didn’t have good swimmers I guess. Well, last summer we took her for a live cover breeding just east of Denver and it …

I’m finally back here again

Looks like I’m getting an entry in here about once every year, whether it needs it or not. I never was good at journals. Well, the Flag Creek Cafe lasted until about July 15, at which time we completely understood why the restaurant business is so different from the software business. Suffice it to say …

Started a retaurant

It is now mid-may and we’re still unpacking at home!  We have started a business as owners of the Flag Creek Cafe, located at the Meeker Golf Course. The startup is taking an inordinate amount of our time and energy, but after two weeks we are beginning to get our staffing levels up and hopefully …

Just an update

Spent a bit of time updating the pics pages and moving the site as a sub-web of my weatherweather.net site.  I’ve always been interested in weather phenomenon and after leaving Bakersfield it dawned on me that I’m finally living in an area that actually HAS weather!  I set up a station in the back yard …

We have arrived in Colorado!

Well, we completed our move from Bakersfield to Meeker on November 1, 2001.  Everyone arrived safely and the people, dogs and horses are all fine.  We live about 3 miles outside of town on County Road 4, on the mesa overlooking Meeker and the White River Valley.  Although we have about 15 acres, most of …
