Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!! 

Sorry I have been away for a few days.  But I would like to introduce you to Bentley.  Bentley belongs to my friends, Debbie and Gordy.  He is a champion Miniature Schnauzer and he is a little beauty.  Quite a character too.  Here is a picture of him when he was our tour guide at Eldorado Canyon on Tuesday.   Eldorado is one of his favorite places to go and we sure did have fun hiking with him.

So Tuesday we went to Bass Pro Shop and hiked in Eldorado Canyon and Wednesday Debbie took us looking at houses.  She thinks we should do a single family home rather than a condo.  Dianne and I did find one place that we liked that is in a "front porch" community.  We also saw a couple of places that had great mountain views but the floor plans were a little screwed up for what we  want.  After looking at houses, Deb brought us back to Tom  and Cindy's in time for Tom's birthday dinner.  After a nice dinner that Cindy worked her butt of on, the neighbors came over to wish Tom a happy birthday and for drinks and cake.  Tom and Cindy are fortunate that they have super nice neighbors.  I hope that Dianne and I can get that lucky when we move out here.

Today, Dianne and I slept in   Then kind of hung out watching TV while Tom and Cindy took a nap.  Cindy prepared a huge ham, two sweet potato casseroles, green bean casserole and stuffing.  About 3 pm or so we toted all the food over to their neighbor's for dinner.  So we got to see all the people we had met last night.  It was a very nice time.  Unfortunately, Tom couldn't make the dinner.  He is on call this weekend for his job and he had to drive into the mountains to an outlet mall so he could fix some cash registers that were down at the Gap and Old Navy. 

So now that you have met our tour guide, Bentley, I'll leave you with a picture of Eldorado Canyon.  This canyon is famous for being a destination for people all around the world to learn to do technical climbing on the sheer cliffs.  It is beautiful, but those people are nuts!!!

Bevie, Bentley is adorable! I am so glad that you had good time in Colorado, However I have to agree with Toni. Michigan won't be the same when you leave.
