Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

We arrived back in Colorado just in time for the riots (see yesterday’s comments on that travesty) but, to our good fortune, none of the violence and looting have come near us.  But things are tense enough that we are keeping firearms handy; anyone that tries attacking the Casa de Animal will find violence does indeed beget violence, as we are prepared, in the words of the late Colonel Cooper, to ensure “...that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy. ”  Meanwhile, out of an abundance of caution, we are (as always) armed whenever stepping out of doors.

One of the down sides – one of the very few downsides of moving from our temporary New Jersey lodgings back to our own Colorado is the necessity of re-acclimating.  While the New Jersey place was at a couple hundred feet above sea level, the Casa de Animal is more like 5,800 feet above sea level.  So Mrs. Animal and yr. obdt. can expect a week or so of being short of breath, not to mention the dried-out sinuses from the near-desert climate.

While it’s good to be home, recent events have made our move north (even if it’s just part-time) a little more urgent.  More on that to follow.  In the meantime, there’s still a lot to love about Colorado:


And on that mountainous note, we return you to your Wednesday, already in progress.
