Not Drinking a Fifth on this Fifth
New Castle 4th of July Weekend
Our first two-and-a-half early morning hours along the Western Slope of Colorado’s New Castle Main Street gave me a truly quiet time among the Burning Mountain area earthly neighbors – birds and other varmints – after six fine hours of sleep (despite the loud freight train at 12:30 a.m.) and a special U.S.A. 4th with the city folk of nearby Glenwood Springs and thousands of tourists flocking the grounds of the Hotel Colorado (off Pine Street along the north side of the Colorado River) and Indian fabled therapeutic pools of the hot springs.
One gets a great feeling when Billy Joel’s “Honesty … is such a lonely word …” plays through thy head after a holiday of light boozing, great sandwich food, soul searching, hiking with about 200 pounds of gear, and frank discussions with Americans and world soccer fans (by the way, the East and West Germans defeated the fickle French one to nothing yesterday; therefore, the trademark rights to French Toast now belong to the German Government – Now kids must relearn how to order German Toast with butter and American-real Maple syrup; Also from the FIFA World Cup 2014, the tournament 3 to 1 favorite Brazil outlasted fellow South Americans – the Columbian drug lords – Two goals to only one official score in a very well, cleanly-played match-up).
We still love the 18 to 1 Argentinians to win it all this Sunday beginning at 2 p.m. North American Rocky Mountain Daylight Time.
Then, free drinks at the Spring’s 19th Street Café back bar afterwards courtesy of the Pope’s Holy Roman Catholic Church… we pray!
