Summit Up 2-1-10


Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column wishing upon a star to be beaten with a “clever” bat.

Not literally of course. But an immediate influx of hip, cleverness through the whack of a wooden object would be quite helpful to us. With a gentle smack, we’d go from dull to witty – and our audience would giggle adoringly at us as we lay down silly quips.

Meanwhile, we’ve got nothin,’ peeps. It’s lunch time, and our low blood-sugar levels have left us weakened and depleted. We feel as if we’ve been forced to go shopping at some terribly large mall with stores like Ann Taylor, and we need a juice box or something to bring our level up.

OK, enough complaining. Regardless of whether we’re tired, hungry, cold, or sodden with dog slobber – life is good. Why? We love our home. We love waking up in the morning with mountain views. Our tummy growls lovingly at the sight of homemade beef jerky. Snowflakes send our heart aflutter We’ve placed Summit County on a pedestal.

So be it.


In “like, wow” news, we’re like …. wowed completely. There were so many people in Breckenridge over the weekend, it was like a small city had descended upon our fair li’l mountain town. It took us almost a half-an-hour to drive the length of Breck.

We were utterly amazed at how many cars and people fit onto Main Street to see the snow sculptures on display. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves!


In other news, we wish we liked to chew on bones as much as our pooch. She can munch this bone for hours – HOURS!

It’s like doggy crack. Her attention is so fixated

on this gouged, semi-yucky bone half-filled with marrow, we’re actually jealous.

We wish that we liked anything as much as

our dog likes her bone. We’re even thinking about getting our own bone and trying it out – just to

see if it’s really as good as it seems.

OK, we joke.

E-mail us as and tell us what your dog likes to do.


We’re out, wowed out of our mind. Because it’s Monday – a good day to be alive.
