New House Drop By

Of course we stopped by the house today. Most likely this will be the last time that we stop by before the final walk and closing. I don’t know why I say things like that. You and I know that it is complete bullshit. Let’s pretend that is is the last time. I won’t tell if you won’t tell. Or is that, I’ll show you mine if you so me yours.

The foam padding and carpet saran wrap have been lifted from the flooring. There are a couple stains on the carpet (looks like mud) that were not there the other day. I am sure that they will clean that up.

I don’t think that there will be any surprises in store for us. Unless, somebody (maybe you) decide to put a deck in the backyard for us as a house warming gift. Wouldn’t that be cool. You can do it anonymously if you like. We want solid, natural wood with clear stain. Oh, we want railing around the perimeter as well as a couple of steps down to the dirt/rock below. Might as well throw in a gate too.

This is the kind of deck that we are looking for:


See, nothing fancy…

Okay, back to the house (inside that is)…

Here are a few pictures that I took today:



They are in the process of replacing some bad boards by the slider window. The footprints that you see are those of Richard Kiley’s - we shared no expense.



We got a tree in the front yard now. We must of passed inspection!

To pass inspection, there has to be a tree in the front yard and an anti-syphon valve connected to the main in the front yard. Both of these must have been put in within the past couple of days.

Final picture (to celebrate 95% packing completion:


Michelle’s beer is a non-alcoholic by the way…

Rocky Mountain Arsenal and National Wildlife Refuge - Part Deux

 Yes, I bought a new camera.  The new and improved Fuji XT-4.  The XT-4 is FAR superior than it's predecessor (XT-3) in all aspects.   You can blame Michelle for converting me to Fuji. Now, I must say, I didn't' blatantly spend money on this camera without having a plan. I sold my Nikon Z6 and associated lenses which more than paid for the Fuji.  I can honestly say that I feel good about buying the new camera.  The only regret that I have is that I didn't ask for more money on the Fuji "kit lenses" that Michelle and I had (27mm).  Fuji has NO stock on any of their lenses and I could have made a killing on the lens.  They both sold within minutes of posting them on eBay.  Dammit! So, you may be asking yourself what the fuck that this has to do with the RMANWR?  A test drive on the new camera.  Michelle was kind enough to let me "borrow" her Fuji 100-400mm lens.  Possession is 9/10 of the law.  It is now my possession.   The Fuji 100-400mm is far super

Thank You For The Smoke (California)! Wyoming Sucked

Another attempt at Astrophotography gone up in smoke.   Thank you California for the ruining our Wyoming weekend.  Don't worry, we will be visiting soon and will definitely leave a mark on your ass. The smoke was so bad in Wyoming.  Thick, grey and disgusting. Of course, this didn't stop people from going to one of our favorite spots in Wyoming.  Medicine Bow National Forest.   We dressed for 60 degree weather.  We didn't expect 35 degree weather with fog and blustery wind.  Glad we packed additional clothes (hats, gloves, scarfs etc). I am ahead of myself.  The day excursion to Medicine Bow was the second day.   We spent the first day at the Wyoming Territorial Prison to visit relatives.  Ha...the prison is now a park.  The prison's most famous prisoner was Butch Cassidy.  The only prison that Butch was incarcerated in.  Pretty good for career criminal. We spent most of the day at the prison.  Historical Prisons will the only ones that I will visit.  My mother raised m

Denver Zoo (New Lens Test)

 Michelle got tired of me asking if I could use her Fuji 100-400mm lens.  Really?  It's her damn fault for talking me into buying the new Fuji XT-4 in the first place... bitch. I found it on sale at Mike's Camera and with the rebate and free stuff they provided, it was hard to pass it up. Since fall is upon us, bird watching is pretty much out as they have mostly migrated to warmer climates.  Well, that is except for the ones at the Denver Zoo.  Camera, new lens and COVID Masks in hand, we headed out to the zoo. Well, as you can see, there are more than just birds there. The Fuji Lens blows my old Leica (Panasonic) 100-400mm out of the water.  BIG TIME.  The Fuji is sharp in the entire focal range.  A bit more pricier but the image quality speaks for itself.
