Part of Longmont Estates plus Hover Home — north of Mountain View/Northwestern Road, west of Hover, south of 17th, and east of Northwestern Road.
I’m almost done with January, and have had wonderful weather for walking all month. I took off my sweatshirt and just wore a short sleeve shirt for the middle third of my walk today. However, it would be nice if we could actually get some precipitation of some sort this winter.
Part of today’s walk is Longmont Estates. I’m not sure if the area east of Harvard is part of that or not. There is a lot of what appears to be very nice senior housing there, of which I was not aware. It also has the Hover Home property. For those of you not familiar with Longmont, the Hover Home is a distinctive house built about a hundred years ago…
I walked past David and Holly Barclay’s house today. David is a great local comedic actor (and not bad at non-comedy too). In his theater biographies, he always makes a point to remind men of a certain age to get their prostate exams.
As I was finishing up, Debi Stevenson also drove by and said hi… when I was only about a block from her house! She invited me in for some water, but I was doing okay, and needed to finish up. But thanks anyway! She recently moved here from Lyons, and said I could post my photos of her house. Is that an actual torii, Debi? (from Wikipedia… A torii is a traditional Japanese gate most commonly found at the entrance of or within a Shinto shrine, where it symbolically marks the transition from the profane to the sacred.)
There was a family working in the yard, maybe a mother and grandmother, with a slightly unhappy toddler with them. Apparently they were debating on whether to take the child inside or not, and as I was walking past, the older lady gave a pearl of wisdom….
“If he’s going to scream, he just as well scream fresh air”.
Total for today: 24,520 steps, 4:12 time
I wondered if I should stop walking after seeing warning # 9.
