Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column trying not to unwind from an incredible weekend. OK, so maybe other daily columns are out there trying not to do the same, but we doubt it.The sun, a filled lake, loads of people in town S we can only think of a few things that would make it better. Maybe a good read. Here are a few of our childhood faves:4) Little Jimmy and the Potty that Swallowed Him”) You are Different and That’s Bad) Daddy’s New Wife, RobertB) Fun Four-Letter Words to Know and Sharell) Hammers, Screwdrivers and Scissors: An I-Can-Do-It Book$) The Children’s Guide to Hitchhiking_) Santa isn’t Real and Parents Always Lie~) Curious George and the High-Voltage Fence=) All Cats go to HellV) Some Kittens can Fly@) That’s It! We’re Putting You Up for Adoption!+) Grandpa gets a Casket%) The Little Girl Who Was So Bad Her Parents Stopped Loving her-) The Magic World Inside the Abandoned Refrigeratorj) The Pop-Up Book of Human Anatomy6) Strangers Have the Best Candy–) Bobby Was an “Accident”) Things Rich Kids Have, But You Never Will&) Pop! Goes the Hamster and Other Great Microwave Games) The Man in the Moon is Really SatanY) Your Nightmares Are Real^) Eggs, Toilet Paper and Your School!) Why Can’t Mr. Fork and Mr.Electrical Outlet be Friends,) Places Where Mommy and Daddy Hide Neat Things!) Daddy Drinks Because You CryBrings back great memories, these books do!***We have a Scum Alert! Scum Alert! This in from Steve at KSMT. He came home to “the chateau” on Peak 7 the other night only to find out some evil version of Santa had left two black lab puppies in his truck. No note, no explanation. Somebody just abandoned the pups in his truck. And he’s allergic! No, wait. We made that up.Anyway, Steve’s been talking about it on his show and has amassed a huge list of people willing to take the dogs in and businesses that have nobly chipped in to care for the canines (that’s the good news that sort of takes the edge off the full-on Scum Alert). So, if you know someone who had some pups, then suddenly didn’t have any pups, Steve would love to hear about it. Call him at (970) 453-2234, ext. 10.***We got a merry, happy little announcement to send on to all those who scoured the hills to help an unfortunate woman find her lost ring.First, she made the difficult decision whether to blow off the Search for the Ring or blow off the Dead show at the Rocks. Ring, Rocks. Ring, Rocks. We’re sure it was a tough decision because we happen to have it on first-hand information that the shows rocked!She got her miracle anyway.The couple was dropped off at Ericsons Mine with two guys from Denver and their high-powered metal detectors. The four of them scoured an area about half the size of a football field for more than an hour. Derek (who we think is half of the couple that lost the ring, if our memory serves us right) was standing on the side of hill and looked down – and there it was!The woman said it was “TOTALLY unbelievable! We NEVER should have found it!”You’re right, we thinks. We should have found it.”The detectors should not have even found it due to the coverage of the rock!” the ring’s owner said. “I missed the Dead too but glad I saved energy for the hike the next morning! It is a true miracle!”We can’t help but wonder, however, if a ring can truly be owned, or if it owns you.Oh, the heck with it.We out, keeping the momentum of the past three days.
