Long day

Friend Bud showed up with his Bobcat to help me build a land bridge across the water bog that the neighbor has been kindly dumping on me for several months, keeping us from accessing about 75% of our property and 95% of our firewood supply. Bud was able to do a lot better job than I have been able to with my loader tractor, so we should have access by tomorrow.

Yes, I have spoken to the Colorado Division of Water Resources, and the next step is a lawyer. But that's a long story. Some other time, with pictures.

While Bud was building a road, I was splitting what little bit of firewood that was left on this side of the bog, while Don Hartman was cutting and loading. Must have processed about a cord.

About 3:00, we came up to the house and had a bowl of chili, and Bud and Don headed back down to finish their project. I jumped in the shower, changed clothes, and then we took off for Denver to meet Larry Correia at his book signing, then had a nice dinner with Larry, Justin, farmgirl and farmmom, another author John Brown, and his entourage. Met a few other people there, but Justin is going to have to fill me in on who they were, since my rememberer doesn't work that well anymore.

Anyway, long rewarding day, and I'm about two hours past bedtime.

In their infinite wisdom...

The board of Colorado State University decided to ban concealed carry on their Fort Collins and Pueblo campuses today.

Not that CCW holders were causing any problems, mind you. It just seemed like the thing to do, you know?

"Overwhelmingly the faculty feel our campus will be a safer place" with a concealed weapons ban, said Dan Turk, associate professor of computer information systems."

Yeah, I guess all those classroom gun battles you've been reading about will undoubtedly stop now, eh?
