“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Post from the High Plains of Colorado ...

where we are at my parents' house (and my hometown) of Burlington, Colorado for Thanksgiving. Best things so far:

1. The Mexican food. My mom's friend, Mireya, made us tamales and chili Colorado, which is a spicy red soup with pork and dried red chilis....AND DON'T FORGET THE HOMEMADE TORTILLAS!

2. The post-dinner Elvis impersonation show by my cousin Debbie, who brought down the house with "My Teddy Bear." Elvis tossed a stuffed bear into the audience at the end of his (her) act, and my daughter caught it! We managed to get Elvis to sign it before he ... left the building.

Today I'm going down to Orth's Department Store ("Big Enough to Serve You, Small Enough to Know You" ... in downtown Burlington), to check out their cowboy boots.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, and that you enjoyed family as much as I did.
