This is very much the ‘medical’ part of Longmont… besides the hospital, there are lots and lots of doctors, dentists, etc.
I was surprised to see that this is another area that has a lot of houses that are set at perhaps a 5 degree angle to the streets.
My son spent 3 months Costa Rica a few years ago, and our family went down to see him while he was there, as he had his 21st birthday then. A very nice place to visit. Pura Vida is kind of like their national motto or saying.
The hospital area has really grown since we moved here in the early 1980′s. I think the ‘Tobacco Free Smoke Free’ sign may have changed recently, since marijuana is now sort of pseudo-legal in Colorado. I guess chewing tobacco may be not allowed as well?
I thought it was kind of strange to embed these rocks into the cement like this. I asked about it to someone who lived nearby, and he said he didn’t know why it was done, but he said he had little kids and that it was a real nuisance. Seems like kids would get hurt there all the time.
See the small print that says ” MADE BY THE TEXAS COMPANY, U.S.A.” I guess it never occurred to me that Texaco was short for ” The Texas Company”. I don’t think I’ve ever heard it referred to that way.
I was surprised about the 1326 date for the Mulay’s sausage.

I saw another fox, a rather large one, but it ran off before I could get a good picture of it. A man walking by at the moment said there was a family of foxes that lived near there. (by the Air Traffic Control center)
So here’s a no-so-good picture of the fox. You can see it framed right in the center of the fence section.
Total for today: 28,100 steps, 5:06 time
No PICTURES of new state license plates, but I did see Rhode Island at a stop light, but didn’t have time to get my camera out. So I guess I won’t count it.
