Testing, testing, 1-2-3

Is this blog still working?

Yes.  I believe it is.  Thank you, Blog, for still working even though I've ignored you so . . .

We just returned from a stellar week at the beach, which led to this column.  It's hard to believe that my brothers and I are all grandparents now, watching our grandchildren interact with one another the way you used to watch our kids.

Wow.  Time.

If you're still reading, thank you.  I promise to try harder.

Well, I kinda felt like I was in the middle of a Viagra commercial

WARNING:  This post will not be near as interesting as that title.  Just so you know.

Anyway, Ken Cannon and I returned from a weekend in and around Capitol Reef where we were surrounded by aging Baby Boomers on motorcycles and so forth, making one last grab at Youth trotting out the front door.

But whatever.  The park was great, and we packed a heap of living into a few days.  Because you never know.  MAYBE WE ONLY HAVE A FEW DAYS LEFT AT THIS STAGE.  But again, whatever.  We hiked and drove the Burr Trail, as well as an offered trail through Cathedral Valley where we ate a lunch at the foot of the Temple of the Sun.  We also forded the Fremont River (okay, fine!  It was like six inches deep!) and took a ferry across Lake Powell.  

And then we ate pie at the Sunglo Cafe in Bicknell--Pinto Bean with all the whipped cream a fat boy could want.

It's good to get away.
