Summit Up

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column contemplating the “hair-of-the-dog” remedy this morning.

We’re not exactly sure how it works, but we think the general idea is just to keep the liver afloat at about 40 proof, and then the carpenter in your head continues away with his constant banging.

But then, we wonder, how does one ween himself away from the hairy dog and return to normal? Is there a slippery cat in the equation that brings along transition? Or is the key to the hair of the dog idea to get started from the moment you wake up so that you are well-lubed by mid-morning and pass out shortly after lunch and ensure yourself a long, restful sleep?

We ponder this as the carpenter continues his incessant banging inside our cranium.

We are, however, absolutely certain of the source of our mild misery and have to say thanks and a great big happy birthday to Abbie Cobb-Lapkass this morning, who celebrated her 29th anniversary of her 21st birthday with many friends at the French Creek clubhouse Saturday evening. Boy, do those folks know how to party! We’re talking a live DJ, a wooden dance floor and plenty of dancing fools to wiggle and giggle the night away. God love ’em all. Did we mention there was a smidgen of wine to be had as well? Thanks to John Daisy from Fatty’s for the good grub that kept the dancin’ fools dancing.


Speaking of birthdays, we here at Summit Up Central want to join Rachel Rose Maike’s mom and dad in wishing her a happy 18th birthday. Mom says a whole host of family members and friends want Rachel to know they are thinking of her on, this, her special day. Enjoy it, Rachel – the next thing you know, you’ll be celebrating the 32nd anniversary of your 18th birthday. Happy birthday from all of Summit County and beyond. We are cheering you on in all your pursuits. Family and friends first, then the rest will follow.


Moving along to all things good and great – we are delighted Target has finally opened, leaving us with yet another choice in our lives: Target or Wal-Mart? Target or Wal-Mart? We were hoping the two big box stores would get into a fireworks duel. What with Target’s grand opening and a fireworks display, we thought Wal-Mart surely would bring in its own fireworks specialist to celebrate its grand remodeling. We will keep our fingers crossed for everyone collectively. You never know, this summer we might have fireworks flying from Frisco, Breck, Copper, Target and Wal-Mart.

Wouldn’t that make the Chinese fireworks manufactures purr all the way to the bank. Next thing you know, we’ll have a little Chinatown right here in Frisco. Won’t that beat all?


We best be getting out of here and try to scare up some old hairy dog.

Have a great week, Summit County, and remember; Good karma is born of good karmic people.

Ommmmmm. Ommmmmm.
