Today I took off on my own to check out the Colorado Railroad Museum. I think the guy behind the desk was shocked to see me. He was about to give me a free admission since the weather was still pretty crappy, but I gladly paid him the admission price as my contribution to the museum. I REALLY took my time reading everything at every exhibit. I had hours to kill, so I just wandered around soaking up all of the great railroad history. I spent a lot of time outside as well since they have a fairly extensive collection of engines and cars. The only problem was that it was about 8 degrees! Yeah, my paws were frozen by the time I was finished. I knew the perfect place to warm up! Just down the road is the Coors Brewery! Whoot! So I took the tour and sampled the beer. This may be a shock to you all, but I actually turned down a free beer! I'm sorry if my image has been forever tarnished, but I actually had to say "no" since I was getting a nice buzz after 2 beers. With snowy/icy roads, I wanted full use of my senses. Responsible Bear is responsible! The brewery is one of the 1st tours I have done in over 15 years since I started brewing myself. Everything made much more sense now! I could also much better appreciate the smell of malted barley and hops. Mmmmmmm.
So now I am hunkered down in my motel room in Boulder relaxing for a bit. Another Winter storm is brewing, but I'm not really concerned. I have Internet. I have t.v. I have magazines (No! Not THOSE types of magazines! *lol*) All I need is some brewski and I can ride out the storm. My training doesn't start until Wed, so I have a whole day to relax. Once again, if any CO furs want to get together for dinner or a movie, just drop me a lion. Of course if the roads are bad, I really don't want to travel far. And Anya, get ahold of me! I have your mom's coffee mug!
