Free!!! We have a bunk bed that was left by a former employee. It is one of those that you sleep on the top and the bottom has parts to a desk/work station. We have the frame and the components for the work station. You would just have to get mattress and screws to hold it together. If your interested in it; please e-mail me at angie@calwood.org. Its free!!! I might be able to deliver it to JT as well if interested.

TENNIS ANYONE! Henry would very much like to find someone to play with today. Stop by our place at 99 Main, look for him at the court, or call him at 303-667-2375 (sorry, posted the wrong number first time). He's a pretty good challenge!

Thanks, Oak! I confess that I "dipped" a bit over the last few rainy days. Great to see your post, and reclaim some positive energy. I spent some of today doing my favorite personal therapy...literally lying on the earth...which is very good for me. It will be wonderful to see new roads: Lower Main possibly to be "complete" in a week. We'll see, but wouldn't that be great! I think that will be a big hurdle. Sending love!

Ode to A Road:

'O mud pit
'O puddle riddled bumps that reel
No matter how you turn your wheel
'O brave toiling travellers of the night
'O time it takes to make it right
Stay strong, o slammed and rattled cars
Remember that we've come so far
'O spirits and fenders dented
'O tires and moods punctured
Ho! To the journey and the journeyers
Bless us with silence and paved surfaces
For now, a beer at the Merc suffices

I love you all
Whatta trip!
and Shekinah the Honda

Road Delays:

As we mentioned previously, these schedules will continue to be revised as work is completed, materials are delivered, and schedules are updated. The latest schedules will be emailed and posted on the Town’s website. Please see the revised schedule below for delays.
REVISED: Lower Main Street
DEI is completing the storm sewer construction on Lower Main Street. After that, they will need about a week to make the final grade and place the road base.

DELAYS for road construction from 7:00 am – 7:00 pm
     Tuesday 8/26 - Saturday 8/30
     Tuesday 9/2 - Friday 9/5
REVISED: 12th Street (Above Mesa St)

     Tuesday 9/2 - Friday 9/5 – Culvert installation and road construction
REVISED: Ward Street
DEI will pour the top slab of the box culvert this week. After the pour, the concrete will need to cure for 1-2 weeks. Once the concrete is strong enough to hold traffic, DEI will begin final grading of Ward Street. The final roadway grading could require some road closures. Velocity is beginning work on the permanent repairs to the Water Treatment Plant. They are proposing to work M-F only right now. Construction should extend through November. Expect DELAYS on Ward Street caused by Velocity.

Wood up for grabs: 4-8 pieces of 2' x 8' planks and some smaller boards; a few nice bark-covered pieces about 3' x 1"; some pieces of posts. All could be used in a building project, or cut up for firewood. My landline is not functioning (thank you Century Link!) but you can stop by Sunday morning between 9:oo - 11:00 am, or Monday afternoon. If I'm not home, the wood is under the carport, in a hanging holder, and there is some resting against the carport railing. Help yourself/selves!

I've recently been advised to undergo a dental gum/teeth deep cleaning procedure called Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy. I would appreciate comments from anyone familiar with this treatment as to its efficacy. It is expensive.
09:35 AM MT(US)
File a complaint with the Colorado Public Utilities Commission if Century link has not been providing the services you pay for. They should be out of businesses for pure breach of contract IMHO. Please don't let them get away with not servicing 'last mile' customers.

I've filed 2 myself the last 2 years. There is power in numbers. Your complaints, all justified.

When we moved back, our phone did not work after it was supposedly 'switched on'. I had to make an appointment with a technician, but had incredible difficulty getting through to a human being to do this. Finally, when I got through, an appointment was scheduled! Viola! I had to take a day off of work so they could come sometime between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and noon, but no later than 5:00 p.m. But, sometime before that appointment, my phone began working! Unfortunately, because it is so hard to reach a human being, I could not inform anyone at Century Link that my phone was now working. However, there were still some computer issues so I thought, all right, go ahead and come. Imagine my chagrin when I saw the Century Link truck drive by my house on the day of the scheduled appointment without stopping! I couldn't get out the door fast enough to stop them. My internet seems to be working now, anyway.

Yes, Kevin, for being in the communications business, they sure seem to have trouble with communication. Until you get a hallowed Technician! If you ever get the number for a tech, do not throw that number away! Save it for later, when you are sure to need it again.

Latest from Century Link.
We got a telephone call from from CL asking if our telephone was working! Unfortunately Sylvia answered the call and said "yes". She missed two good answers: "No" and "Only the one on Porphyry, not the one on 12th Street".

A little history about our phone problems and Century Link as I know it. I called them from the Merc on Wednesday around 6:00 PM. I was very careful to explain that most of the south side of JT was out, even though they kept insisting that I give them my address. They couldn't find my address on Porphyry View in their records. They insisted I was on 12th street. I insisted I was on Porphyry View. Anyway, they said the problem would be fixed within 24 hours. (6:00 PM Thursday).

To make sure, I called Thursday morning, went through the same argument about my address, and was told the phones would be fixed by 11:00 PM on Friday. The woman stood her ground and insisted it would be Friday.

Yesterday around 4:00 PM I was driving up 12th street toward my home and saw a Century Link truck at the side of the road with a very confused looking driver. I got suspicious and asked him what he was looking for. It was my house on a non-existant address on 12th Street. He had partial information from my first call. He had my name and phone number and my wrong address. But he didn't know the phones were out on Mesa.

Century Link is in the commumications business.

PS: Hey CL -- I live on Porphyry View.
