    under the ladder man was an AMAZING gelato place, Fior Di Latte, where i got Lemon/Basil, and Farmers Market Fresh Peach. The owner came in as i was finishing. somewhere late 20s, early 30s, and in a very animated italian way blurted out "OOH! WHAT FLAVORS DID YOU GET?!" she was QUITE excited, as if she were anticipating ordering her own and wondering what bizarre flavors they might have here... i said "lemon basil, and the peach!" - "oh.. i spent over an hour peeling each of those peaches by hand!.... *almost awkwardly long pause while she looked up thoughtfully... then blurted out suddenly* "BUT IT WAS WORTH IT!" and her eyebrows shot up and she smiled big and trotted off to the back! i loved her! she could be an amazing character in a book or movie! took this while driving around the east side of boulder.. the mountains are RIGHT at the west edge of town.. its GORGEOUS! GO TO BOULDER!!! its a must visit in my book for american adventures!

    swung by the mall that Gonzo and i used to frequent for his socializing as a puppy. it was a dog friendly mall, it was so nice!
    i decided i needed this luggage for my next adventure!

    and heading back into denver for the hotel... bossman was babbling about work stuff and missed the exit i kept trying to inform him about 3 times... so we ended up looping around north of denver and then down the east side and into downtown again... lol im sure it was all MY fault in his eyes tho! lol!


    DSC02931.







    saw SEX TAPE in the theatre across the street from the hotel along the 16th st open mall in downtown denver, and saw this guy trying to talk to this girl who seemed interested only in when the next police officer would be coming by,... lol

    love the ones on the plane.

    and it sounds like the gelato shop owner might be your soul mate.
