Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column basking in the aroma of roses and seashells.Well, so maybe we’re not basking. But we sure can dream, eh? And right now, we’re dreaming about places we’d rather be. Places like Belize or Cancun or the south of France.And why do they call it the south of France? Wouldn’t it just be southern France? Is Colorado considered the south of Wyoming? Sometimes there are questions we must ponder.On to the day. Top o’ the morning and welcome to Tuesday. Look outside! Is there a bunch of white stuff on the ground? What?! No?! They promised! Oh, there is? Never mind.Ladies and gents, girls and boys, it’s also that wonderful time of year:Millions of Summit Up Readers: Football!Summit Up: No, well that wasn’t what we were thinking.MSUR: Skiing!SU: Uh, nope.MSUR: The new phone books are out!

SU: Wow! Good guess.We love this time of year because we get to peruse through the ever-growing phone book and find funny names. We remember one year when John Q. Public was listed to several numbers in the Village at Breckenridge.So here we go! (Sound of flipping pages)%) L. Hryckowian. Yeah. Pronounce that one.$) Mr. Electric and Mr. Softball.#) Joseph Zmuggk) J. M. Romersheuser@) Tom CounterT) C Countiss’:) David Coward

®) Good ‘ol Dr. Stump, the orthodontist) Scott Terryberry) John WetmoreOh, there are so many! Hope no one took offense, even though that’s what we are here for.***”I hope the tires blow out on the mofo!” Jim e-mailed us. As you can tell, he’s a little ticked off, so he sent this Scum Alert!! Scum Alert!!Jim’s mad at the rapscallion that made off with his trailer – made from the back end of a 1972 Jeep Commando. If anyone sees it broken down (after the tires blow out, of course) with an elk in the back, you give us a call here at the paper, and we’ll let Jim know where to find it.We’re assuming that elk in the back is dead, so may it rise up and make the perpetrator look like Chris Farley and David Spade in that scene in “Tommy Boy” – sans all the humor, of course.***We out, looking for seashells. If you see any, give us a ring at (970) 668-3998, ext 237.
