Summit Up
Special to the Daily/SandraWhat are these foxes up to?

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column having a day-mare about trolls and a stack of cardboard boxes as long and tall as the Great Wall of China.

We’re pretty sure we know what this dream is about, seeing as how we spent the past 48 hours solid packing sundry and miscellaneous items into boxes, loading them into cars, then unloading them and humping them up two tall and narrow flights of stairs into our humble new domicile.

The trolls, not to mention the golden-bristled wild boar that helped us carry boxes, figure into all this because we’ve been deeply engrossed in some kid-lit the past few weeks, reading a story about a young Saxon wizard apprentice who is kidnapped by marauding Viking berserkers and has to go on a quest to Jotunheim (land of the trolls) to win his sister’s freedom.

Good stuff, and we definitely wish we could have had some real trolls around the past few days to help with the heavy lifting. We’re sure they could have simply tossed that pesky futon frame up to the third-floor balcony, but alas, without them, it’s stuck in the garage, along with some other over-sized bits and pieces. Look for a “free-stuff” ad in the Summit Daily soon!

But we’re psyched now that the deed is done (mostly) and we’re living the American dream, which means up to our eyeballs in debt. But we’re not complaining in the least. We have our own home, shared with our significant other, offspring and dog, right here in Frisco. And we’re not planning on moving again anytime soon, so if anyone out there wants a boatload of cardboard boxes, let us know.

So to celebrate, we’re going to send a Smarty Pants Alert!! to Drew Arnesen, of Breckenridge, who was named to the Dean’s List at Castleton State College in Vermont. That’s pretty much all the info we have on this one, but let us be the first to send out a big congrats!


Then we have an Angel Alert!! from Mary to her husband, Randy, who works at Q4U.

“He’s a hard worker, and is cute as can be. I want to thank him for my Valentine’s Day presents! ” I love You” and “I Got You Babe” … love your special Summit County Wifey!”

Awwww, isn’t that special? It just makes us warm and tingly all over when we get to share in the glad tidings of the day. Plus, it makes us want to run right down to Q4U and load up on a big, meaty sandwich, no doubt made with TLC, as well as a slew of secret ingredients we can’t reveal here. Yep, we’re insiders when it comes to “Q,” but we’ve been sworn to secrecy.


Finally, Sandra sent us some interesting photos of a couple of local foxes doing, uhhh, let’s call it an interesting dance. We aren’t wildlife biologists, so we can’t say with any degree of certainty what these two were up to, but we do know a happy smile when we see one!

Check it out somewhere on this page, and if you have any idea what these crazy critters were doing, by all means, please let us know at

We out, doin’ the Watusi.
