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 Quillernicholas reale award 2009Gramps 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.

Stay tuned.
