Friday fives – home is where the

What is your favorite place?

Home.  they say ‘home is where the heart is’, right?  Or, is it ‘home is where the hearth is’? How about this > home is where my big ass TV is?  Home is where all my guitars are! Home is where the dogs and cats and horsies are. Home is where my wifey is.

What is your favorite place in your home?

The kitchen.  I love love love to cook.  Plus, the kitchen and family are largely connected.  Let’s call it a ‘great room’. This means I can watch movies or stand up comedy while cooking.  Btw, don’t watch movies while you are cooking, you’ll cut your fingers off. Stand up comedy is way better… because you can look away and still get everything.  Plus, Netflix just has tons of stand up comedy, and they are always refreshing it.

Would you most want to live in a city, a suburb or the country?

Oh, in the country. We kinda live in the country here.  5 acres dirt roads, no street lights. We live way outside the city because we have horses.  Moving out of the city to some land is far and away the best thing that has happened to me. Its been about 7 or 8 years.  I think I will look back at my life as everything before, and after, moving out of the city and getting some land.

What is special about the town you live in?

Parker?  Not much.  We have lived here for almost 20 years, in several different places.  It used to be very very small 20 years ago. There was one business on Lincoln for a 15 mile stretch, it was a Conoco.   Now, it has filled in, and frankly looks exactly like every other suburb in America. For people from Denver, I tell them I live in Parker.  For people outside of Colorado, I just say we live in Denver. Parker is a southern suburb of Denver. Actually, almost no one lives in Denver proper.  It’s boundaries are just a few miles by a few miles. Last time I looked, metro Denver (meaning Denver plus all our suburbs) is about 20th in size and population of American cities.

How much time do you spend in nature?

Not nearly enough.  I miss camping, in the emotional and romantic sense.  I also keep missing all the camping trips. Last few years, I have been working evenings, and Saturdays.  I pledge to do more and spend more time outdoors. I mean… we live in paradise. Colorado rules!

UNLESS… you count me hanging out and working on the property.  Fixing fences, and other such country tropes. If that counts, then I have a good balance.  Still needs more. The reality, though, Winter is coming. So… Winter in Colorado is different game.  That is an inside game.
