Trip to my son Lane's 25th Annual Pig Roast in Colorado

Ok, I’ve been way too busy. I’m back on my blog again. Back until August 2nd that is. Aug 2nd Ray and I will head up to Mammoth for the month, hopefully avoiding the over 105 degrees temperatures here in Rancho Mirage.

Last week my brother Don flew me and Don’s mate of 30 years, Colleen, back to Fort Collins, Colorado to attend my son Lane’s 25th Annual Pig Roast weekend. I was asked to present a slide show of my New Mexico backpack on Saturday night. Sunday was the Pig Roast.

About 2.5 hours later we landed at another small local airport 20 minutes from our motel and Lane’s house. A black rental car pulled up next to Don’s plane seconds after he landed and minutes before airport personal taxied his plane into the hanger 10 feet away.

I could get used to this lifestyle!

Later Saturday night at Lane's friends' 8th Annual Crawfish Party.
The Crawfish stew is cooked (there were a total of 4 large pots of stew) and then thrown on to a plastic wrapped table top where the feeding frenzy begins.



Everyone had their fair share of drinks. I was just crazy, not drunk! The girl in the photo was having fun with me and my craziness. My brother asked me, "How do you always attract the drunks?" Her t-shirt is NOT tie-dyed.
My handsome son!

Slideshow at 11:30pm!


Sunday and the Pig Roast.
