Summit Up

Special to the Daily

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column doing a bit of housecleaning today.

We’ve been remiss … forgive us. Today’s edition likely features an item or two that’s been stewing in our bulging mailbox at (Don’t let it deter you, leterwritters and solution finders across the county. We may not be prompt, but we are responsive!!)

First up, a Scum Alert!! Scum Alert!! to whoever stole Buzzy’s shirts. Buzzy called Tuesday morning and said, “We left three shirts hanging over in the laundromat, and realized late last night that we had. We went back first thing this morning, and they weren’t there. Someone stole our shirts.”

Two were flannels, and Buzzy doesn’t care about that. The other one was brand new, denim with a “Buzzy” stitched on the front and a Mickey Mouse emblem on the back.

If you see it, Buzzy says, rip the shirt off their back and give us a call at Summit Up. We’ll get it back to her …

Finally, Scotty Bondo was kind enought to submit a ton of names for a gondola, in honor of Breckenridge’s contest to name their new high-speed whisker. He even categorizes them for us lazy editors:

“These are my honest submissions, some are totally serious!

“Freeride Freeway, Freebird, Tam a lama ding-dong, Here today gondola tomorrow, Colorado Skyway, Take n Bake, To Go Box, Breck Box, The Condola, Herbie: the Love Tram, Powered by Organic Green Gerbils, The Breckenridge Broomstick, Flying Sardine Shacks, Mr. Boreal’s Wild Ride, Easiest Way Up,, Massive Spring Gondola, Better than the Bus, SunCars, Bump Bus, Magic Bus, The Gondolas of Narnia, Canned Tourons, The Massive, The Zephyr, The Fly-Way, Lola the Gondola, Gondola-Aloha, HOV’s, Chariots of Powder, SnowBugs, G-Ride, The Texas Two-Stop.

“These are bad gondola names. Do not get on any gondola if it is named like this:

“The Falling Pod of Death, The Hindenberg, The Sonny Bono Memorial Gondola, The Guinea Pig, Euthenizer, Rescue Tobaggan, Flying Lemons, The ‘So-Called’ Gondola.


We out, dusting out the cupboard.
