It’s the day before Thanksgiving and that means means people are driving, flying, cooking and visiting and most likely two or three of you will actually read this post today.
So I’ve put off writing about the Colorado Railroad Museum, and instead I’m going to write a kitschy Thanksgiving post. I am going to share with you a few random things I’m really thankful for starting with books on tape.
I am very thankful for books on tape. They aren’t really “on tape” anymore because you can download them directly from your computer to your mp3 player. We have a subscription to an online site where you can browse and download a certain number of books each month.
As the Mayor of HeidiTown I travel around Colorado quite a bit, and Ryan and I can only talk to each other for so long. After all, we’ve been married for 10 years and we’ve pretty much heard everything the other person has to say, so books on our mp3 player are vital for our travels. Whether it’s just a drive through Denver rush hour traffic, or a cross-state trek, listening to books in the car is the only way we choose to travel.
I am thankful for diners and dives. There’s just something so right about eating at a diner when you are on a road trip. We have a couple favorites around the state, but the one we’ve been going to the longest is the Cutthroat CafÃ© in Bailey, Colorado. You won’t find a website for this joint, but I assure you it’s there at 157 Main Street.
Breakfast is my favorite meal at the Cutthroat because they serve coffee in those brown diner mugs that remind me of my grandparents. They also serve a tasty hamburger and service is fast and friendly. You won’t have to rob a bank either because lots of meals are priced under $8, and some are under $5.
Lastly, and here is when I hope more than a few of you read this post, it’s been a phenomenal year here in HeidiTown and I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank all the citizens of this town. Citizens are those of you who read this blog, those who have liked HeidiTown on Facebook or Google Plus and those of you who stalk HeidiTown on Twitter. Without all of these amazing people the HeidiTown brand wouldn’t be where it is today.
It’s impossible for me to thank each of you personally, but please know that I appreciate all the support over the years and thank you for being citizens of my little, virtual town. It’s truly an honor to be Mayor of HeidiTown.
Thank you, thank you, thank you & happy Thanksgiving!
