Today, Mom and I are striking out toward Creede, CO for the 20th Annual Taste of Creede on Saturday and Sunday.
I don’t know how much Internet access we’ll have there. The town doesn’t even have a McDonald’s!
This is the first trip Mom and I have taken alone together. I’m really praying there isn’t a reason for that.
Why are we going?
My late Grandpa Andy Sheptak was a big fan of the water color artist Steve Quiller. Gramps would go out to Creede at least once a year and stay with Steve and his wife, Marta. This is going to be something of a family homecoming. You know how many times I’ve written about Gramps before. Oh, and Marta has a surprise for me. I know what it is, but you’ll have to wait….
Okay, time to get packing. It’s supposed to be 94 here in Dallas today. It’s 47 degrees F there right now. The high is like mid-60s at 8,000 feet in the air.
