Our summer trips to Colorado always include visiting old friends--they are old, like us, but also people we have known for more than 50 years.
We drove to Longmont to see Betty and Larry. John worked with Larry on the Boulder Police Department. For several years we all lived in the same trailer park in Boulder.
We also met Dave and Kathy for lunch. I first met Kathy at Freshman Camp at the University of Colorado and for a couple of years we all lived in the same apartment house.
They attended our 50th wedding anniversary celebrations and we were at theirs.
We were delighted to attend the Boy Scout Court of Honor when our grandson received his Eagle Scout badge.
We traveled to Canon City for a visit before heading out. We saw nephew Todd and brother-in-law John at John's home.
Then we were off to a restaurant to have lunch with John and his friend Nancy and John's brother Tim.
We made a stop our our niece Megan's home and were also able to see one of her children, Victoria.
When we leave this area, we never know how long it will be before we see these people again so we always try to make the most of our time here.
