Colorado is Colorado

As emergency trips go - this one was pretty smooth. The flights departed and arrived pretty close to on time. The rental car place was realtively agreeable and staying in a five star hotel is highly recommended to reduce stress. We stayed at the Broadmoor and it was pretty much flawless. From a nice upgrade at check in (thanks Kelly!), to kind service and attention at every turn (thanks Jamie, Josh, Andi and Sacia!) It makes Colorado Springs tolerable.

Mother of Moda di Magno is doing really well post hip surgery. She is walking with a cane and in good spirits. We did some medical rounds, packed up some Christmas boxes for the family scattered around the US, and talked and laughed the way that we do. Mom came out to dinner with us one night and will ground me for life for putting her picture here, but I'm back in Boston - so the grounding will have to wait.

Tommy waiting in front of the Broadmoor for the bright blue rental Ford Focus to be pulled around. The valets parked it with a straight face.

William, the bartender at The Tavern at the Broadmoor - he knows how to make a drink.
Taking a walk around the lake on Saturday before we departed for lunch at my brother's home and then the airport in Denver.
My brother Al's dog Scooby. He's a good boy.
My brother Bobby's cat "Little Kitty" - the sweetest, most lovey cat ever.

Little Kitty is his name, but he is actually an Urban Legend-sized cat .
