what Ptelea does on her day off


I played on the Boulder campus of the University of Colorado yesterday while the students studied and took final exams!

Old buildings

Very cool how you posted a pic from the past and now your pics. I love old buildings --- grew up in a 200 year old New England tavern ---- if those walls could talk!
