Just heard (from a very reputable show on ESPN) that more people die each year from being hit in the head with a falling coconut than from shark attacks. We definitely have lots of coconuts, and we often see them fall near us. I guess we need to be mindful of objects falling from the sky.

Fun times in my hometown of Loveland, Colorado. We enjoyed some nice picnics out in the back yard.
And Grandma Barlow spoiled the baby (in this picture) and all of us with LOTS of treats- pudding, milk shakes, popcorn, caramel corn, cinnamon rolls, cheesecake, etc.
On the way home we stopped for some fun in Estes Park where I used to work 18 years ago. The same owners were there and we spoke about life at Ride-a-Kart in 1992.
Fun times with Aunt Kim who flew to Denver to see us for a few days. For those of you who have heard the rumor, this is my twin sister. See how I told you we don't look alike at all? She has a "fish-mouth" and much "beadier" eyes than me.
We were also able to catch up with Uncle Matthew and his family in Denver one night.
Then back to Colorado Springs for a few last rides on the 4-wheelers.
