Project 313 – Post No. 279

The third installment of the Musem of Flight is HERE.

Until you start collecting stuff, you don’t realize how much of any one thing is out there. Once you get interested in something, you’ll notice them pretty much anywhere you go and no matter what you do. Such was the case with collecting teapots and teacups.

We had often spoken of doing the trail (about an 8 hour round trip for people who are fit) from Manitou Springs to the top of Pikes Peak but we always found reasons not to go.

Once, I couldn’t find my climbing socks. Sadly, I had to leave them behind when we moved because I couldn’t remember where I had buried them.

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.
