Summit Up 6-27-10

Summit Daily/Mark Fox

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column demanding the identity of last week’s litterbug.

A large, white poster was found collecting dirt and grease on the side of Granite Street in Frisco during a recent barbecue-themed event.


The likely picketing device was an oddity for an event free of political association.

OK, we did get some angry letters about the glorifying of smoked animal parts, but there weren’t any people organized with big posters and such of the like – not that we noticed, anyway, and we do love a party.

So where did it come from?

Tell us:


Judging by the wealth of treasures pictured at right, we’ll go out on a limb and say the Silverthorne Rummage Sale beat the Summit Daily Yard Sale on Saturday.

We see a fine-looking broom, comfy-looking slippers and even a set of coffee cups upon which we we might well have placed winning bids.

Rather, the Yard Sale outside our corporate suites was a bit less cluttered. No people; no tables; not a scrap of old clothing or used shoes.

We thought we saw a tumbleweed roll by, but it just turned out to be a tear forming in our eye.

Sorry folks, maybe next year we’ll plan our big day differently.

Personally, we’re hoping to get that mini-doughnut cart from the barbecue festival to park and fry.

Those things are so good. We ate 40 last weekend over a two-day period. Come to think of it, we also consumed a massive amount of smoked meat.

Our body did not react well. And we’ve been pampering it with a wagonload of the following healthy options to try and achieve some semblance of balance before we spend a weekend drinking beers and fishing.

Here’s our grocery list from the last week, filled with the help of Natural Grocers in Dillon and Alpine Natural Foods in Frisco.

See if you don’t think we’ll turn into the next Popeye or something…

– Organic pumpkin granola

– Ezekiel 4:9 bread

– Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar

– Organic almond butter

– Raw honey

– Lettuce, tomatoes, grapefruit, apples, celery, carrots, green beans, bananas

– Roberto’s Habanero Salsa

– Have ‘A Corn Chips

– Dried apricots

– Organic biscuits

– Organic Flax Plus waffles


Of course we supplemented this list with our weekly gut-load of Taco Bell and soda pop, but it’s a start.

It’s Sunday, and we’re spying on your garage sale, taking notes.
