Golden Time


I walk behind to catch them if they fall.

I cut up their food.

I speak slowly so they’ll understand. 

I make sure they get nap time.


These are some of the tasks I did when the nest was full.  

Now I do them for my dear parents, as they did them for me…

Take me to The Big Hole!


Yellow: Looking forward to the next stop on the “Goodbye-to-The-West” tour?

Red: Are you kidding? Did you know that the Grand Canyon was formed by the uplifting of the Colorado plateau and erosion caused by the Colorado River over a period of 6 million years?

Yellow: Uh huh.

Red: It’s  277 miles long, ranges in width from 4 to 18 miles, and attains a depth of more than a mile?

Yellow: Yes, you mentioned that, too. Twice.

Red: Nearly two billion years of the Earth’s history can be observed in the layers of exposed rock.

Yellow: Did you pack the earplugs?
