In other news...finally got rid of our cat. Same day as the Obama visit. I will always remember his visit with fondness. May the new family find her slightly less destructive.

Extension cords are cheaper than batteries and one that reaches to the mailbox shouldn't be too bad....well, unless you have one of them country mailboxes down the road.

A few extra seconds and that guy would've been gone. I love the flying kick/tackle that guy threw at him.

Today's the grand opening of House of Motorrad in Boulder. Might be worth checking out!

They're located in the same plaza as my favorite donut shop.
