Few words Wednesday


This series of shots with my iPad taken in about a 30 minute span
7/8/17


WE saw this speed limit sign at a shopping center near our hotel, Courtyard by Marriott
 in Glenwood Springs, CO. June 20, 2017
Madi moves faster than 12 1/2 mph when stepping off her perch.

This was our view from our hotel room in Glenwood Springs, CO

Few statues outside the Marriott


 Isn't he just gorgeous?  TG sent this to us last weekend.
Kai went to the dog park and was trying very hard to get some pups to
chase him.  But it seems he wore them all out.   Big Kai smiles to you all
  He is a happy pup!! He will be 1 year old this month.

  2. Crikey Made .... you've got the life. I love your perch. Hand made especially for you!! You're pretty spoilt ..... just like me, aye?? Mum loved those statues. Especially the little girl reading. AND the big red hill behind your hotel room. It reminded her of Alice Springs in Australia.
    G'day Kai ...... I would have played with you. You look like a happy bloke.

    ... I might manage the half... &*>... whoever saw such a sign - 10 maybe, 15 maybe... but 12.5??? ...mind you, that does just about equal 20KPH, which is the legal top speed in Edinburgh city limits now - because too many pedestrians were at risk and also congestion is so bad, that is often the fastest one can go anyway! ... wait there, you just know this needs further investigation right???

    "Downtown merchants frequently
    complain that highway traffic, and the speed of the traffic, is detrimental to their customers and their
    businesses. The intent is to make pedestrians in the area feel more comfortable crossing the highway
    and coexisting with the traffic through the area, and to better give drivers the sense that they are
    traveling through an area that they share with pedestrians"


    That quote is from page 48 of this document, which was riveting reading... and great wee maps at the end... This related doc was interesting too... wonder how much has been implemented?...

    What can I say - was just curious. It's that cat in me... and I sit on a seat beside a window just as you do Madi!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  9. Madi that is such a perfect place for your perch. Glad you are enjoying it. Those statues are terrific. Be kind of hard to measure 12 1/2 for a speed limit. Have a wonderful day.

  10. Madi, moves at her own pace.
    That's a weird speed limit sign. Love the multi-colors on the building. I love all the rocks, I'm a nut for rocks.
    Kai, you are a beautiful pooch.

  16. Kai is just so very handsome - he reminds us of our Angel Gypsy cousin!

    12 1/2 - that is really funny. We wonder how many vehicles have those 1/2 m.p.h. markers on their speedometers:)

  18. Your window perch looks pawesome. Pigeon likes to lay on our window seat. She probably needs a special cushion too.

  19. Madi action shots! Those green, orange and tan buildings look European.

  20. At first you might think the colors on the building are too bright. But they actually blend in with the colors of the mountain behind it.

    Say hi to Kai for me!

  23. That perch is perfect. You can look out the window and then hop onto the table if food comes along. What a beautiful view out your hotel window. We sure wish TG would blog about Kai. We're sure he must have lots of fun stories to share.

  27. Ahh that 12 and a half speed sign was going so slow it could not even make it to the top of the pole it was on. Jeez is that speed to keep you from running over turtles? I love the statue with the reader, why I would try and sit with her.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog

  28. I would have liked to have been in on the meeting where the powers that be all sat around and came to the conclusion that 12 and a half miles per hour was a good choice. It seems very odd. I wonder if they had their ideas written on little pieces of paper, and someone put that one in as a joke, but it ended up being chosen!

    I miss Jack. But Kai is super cute!
