23rd Anniversary and a Snow Ride

Today marks 23 years since my loving wife Martha and I got married at my parent's home in California.

Yes folks, she's put up with me for 23 years, the woman should be sainted!

Here's a pic of the happy day, what the photo doesn't show was the nervous tic I had on my right eye....


I am sad to report, I recently tried to put on the Dress Blues jacket I wore at the wedding, and it doesn't fit any more.  Go figure!

We woke to light snow here in the Metro Denver area, but by 9AM the skies were clear and the sun was out.  We had perhaps 3 inches of snow accumulation and naturally I hurried out to take pics before the snow all melted away.

It was a brisk 17°F (-8°C) as Scarlett, my 2014 Ural Patrol Sidecar Rig and I rode out on snow-packed roads to the nearby ranching community where I hoped to find snow covered landscapes.

Sadly, the clouds were still hiding the mountains to the west so no views of the Rocky Mountains.  I did get nicely snow-packed/covered roads though and with the occasional slip and slide, meandered about for these pics:\






Temperatures had soared to 19°F (-7°C) by the time I turned Scarlett towards home, there was work to be done of course.

Congratulations to you on grabbing a fine woman, condolences to her for latching on to a serviceman.... hey got a new keyboard!
Though, your pay grade has improved since the service days.

Since Martha was an Army Nurse she knew what she was in for! :)
