Special to the Daily Angela Perry (now Angela Brownley) Chris Brownley pose at their wedding in Puerto Vallarta on May 11. As luck would have it, today happens to be Angela's birthday, and Chris wanted to send this message: "Happy birthday, Angela. The last month with you by my side has been a dream come true. I love you, Chris." For the record, the couple live in Breckenridge and met here in 1999.

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column sporting a brand new sunburn.Yep, most columns don’t get out as often as we do. Last weekend, we spent a few hours lounging in the hot sunshine – as rare these days in these parts as a technicoled lynx – and are feeling OK about the repurcussions. Sure, our skin turned a neat shade of pink, and sure, our shoulders feel a little like the breakfast griddle, but all we have to say to the last six weeks of cold weather is: “SPF this.”

The truth is, we need a little sunshine to keep our sanity, and all those cloudy days were wrecking with our noodle. Mother Nature gave us what the doctor ordered, though, last weekend.And for that, we’ll even throw out an Angel Alert! Angel Alert!***

Plus, we didn’t want today’s column to be all bad news. Dennis Lenahan sent us a pair of Scum Alert! Scum Alert! notices:”Scum Alert No. 1: To the scumbags who thought the middle of Pioneer Park was the place to dump broken tiles, subflooring, cement board, lumber and cabinet parts. This is also a personal a front to the five or six people who worked their butts off cleaning up Pioneer Park during Frisco Clean-up Day.”Scum Alert No. 2: To the dirtbags who used the Animal Shelter’s dumpster to get rid of empty beer bottles and six packs. Better than in the park, I guess, but these idiots were only a block from the Recycle Center, the right place to get rid of brown glass and cardstock.”

We agree. Thanks Dennis.***It’s Monday, and we’re hoping these afternoon thunderstorms come and go quickly. E-mail us at
