I'm home from Denver and trying to get back in my routine.  I had no computer access while there, so I haven't read any blogs in 6 days.  I think that's the longest since I started on this blog journey.  I have so much catching up to do.  Denver is a very nice city.  It's very clean and very green.  The city has over 200 public parks.  We were staying in downtown, right on the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall.  I went from the wonderful (NOT) marine layer to rainy, overcast weather in Denver.  Luckily, it did clear up after a couple of days,  and I got to enjoy warm, sunny days.  I took lots of pictures on my trip, but most would be boring in a post.  We also went to the Denver Zoo and I could do an entire post on pictures of the backs of the animals.  Had a terrible time with them all facing the other direction.  

Someone decided to fancy up a construction site fence with crocheted flowers.  I've never seen anything like this and it was quite pretty.
A big (40' in fact) blue bear looking in the Denver Convention Center.
Giraffes.  Not quite their backs, but not facing the camera, either.
I am not a fan of snakes, but the color of these boas was just too pretty to pass up.
A little monkey sitting on a larger gorilla.
My brother Brian, nephew Benjamin, mother Patricia and me.
