How about them BRONCO'S??  I hear that it is a given that they will win on Sunday because they are wearing their white uniforms and " White Broncos in California are hard to catch!!"     

Denis and Theresa Weber traveled to Brush, Co last weekend to visit with his sister, Leona Blackwelder.  Then they ventured on up to Greeley to see their granddaughter Nicole Cochran.  The visiting was good, but the trip home on Monday had lots of bad roads.  Glad you made it safely.

Snow days.  Aren't they great?  I can't say I remember many as a kid, but I'm pretty sure I like them more at my age now than I did then. 

I do, however, remember a few when I was too old for school, but a bit younger than I am now.  My memory may be failing me, and if it is, I'm sure someone will correct me....

      How about that Bronco game on Sunday?  They came to play didn't they?  Their defense was amazing and the whole team stepped up whenever they needed to.  They kept Brady off balance most of the game.  Looking forward to the Super Bowl - GO BRONCOS!!

 

     Last Saturday, Layton Hopkins and the boys from his class at school celebrated his 7th birthday at the Bowling Alley in Tribune. Happy Birthday Layton!

Aunt Liz Hulteen was joyful when she told me that her niece, Lacy and J.D. Van Campen had given birth to their second child, a little girl.  Her name is Tess LaNae Van Campen who was born in La Junta on January 25th.  She has been welcomed to their home by her big brother, Wyatt.  The Adamson family is glad they moved back "home" from their jobs in Nebraska.
