A personal blog from my hometown of Ouray, Colorado. It's mostly an homage to my three dogs but there's some fire fighting, traveling and general mountain living stuff as well.

Parenting Tips from a Dog-Owning, Non-Parent

Pretty sure it’s dumb as ^@#& to drive slowly down the street while your 2- to 3-year-old child runs alongside the car. This is not appropriate exercise for a child.

It’s especially dumb when you near the corner and a pick-up truck turns and nearly flattens and kills said child.

Here’s tip for all the lazy fucks out there, get off your asses and take your kid to a goddamn park and let them play for real instead of chasing your dumb ass in the car.

While she hasn’t had a lot of benefits being married to me, one area Maureen has totally made out is in coffeeland.

Every day she gets 3-5 (4 is our average) of these homemade cappuccino-latter hybrids. 3-4 shots of espresso with nicely foamed Almond milk. She claims it’s the only reason she gets out of bed in the mornings.

Case in point: I was at the gym for several hours on Friday, coaching all the classes. She had two of these before I left … at 6 AM. Decided that there was no point in staying up if I wasn’t there to make coffee. Went to bed until a little after 9, waking up so shed be ready for coffee #3 when I got home at 9:30.

Oh, the badass purple octopus mug is mine. And I do not share. She gets the lame-ass white mug.

Finally caught the bastards who keep coming into my yard and stealing all my leaves. Little fuckers.

Called the cops to no avail. Got some bullshit about it being nature.

Ok, seriously, how gorgeous are those two boys? Antlers still in velvet and looking strong and ready for the pending rut.

They’re actually lucky little thieves. I damn near let the girls out to play in the yard but saw these boys at the last minute.

It doesn’t suck living here, that’s for sure.

Another craptacular day in Ouray.

Sorry, runningwithguts, I tried to make it look less shitty but I just can’t seem to fix the ugly landscape with my iPhone.

Maybe the iPhone 6 will make Ouray look pretty.

A great afternoon with Rachel hiking around Ouray. Started at Cascade Falls and then hiked a long portion of the perimeter trail, finally ending up in Box Canyon at those falls. Fun!

We kind of lost big last week and had to play the same team this week. So, a few us decided to make tonight’s game a little lighter, if you will. 

Naturally, that meant breaking out the Wonder Woman gear again. 

She killed it.
