We've visited granddaughters in Omaha, played a little Twister, and Gregg got to stay in Nebraska for a week to see the famous and beautiful little 4 month old Jordie Schindel (and her Dad & Mom and Uncles).

Sally took off for the Wild West - Manitou Springs, Colorado. Where REAL GIRLS kiss wolves and all the 60 year old women look fabulous....

We loved our experience at Colorado Wolf & Wildlife Center. We learned that letting the wolf stick his tongue all the way in your mouth is a sign of respect for him when he has welcomed you into his home. I put that on the list of things, like para-sailing, that I am glad I have done ONCE!

Here's some of what girls do at a 5 day long 60th birthday party...
Go out for High Tea
Play dress up
Facial masques
Hike a little, shop a lot
Go out to eat a lot, shop some more

We rented a beautiful home way up the mountain and saw lots of deer each day(and one huge black mama bear).
This deer is saying "Glad you liked Colorado. Now go home."
So I did, now back in Iowa with Gregg and we are laundering and packing, getting ready for a Scandinavian cruise with brother & sister-in-law, Gary & Judy, leaving Aug 31 for 2 weeks.
