INTRO TO THIS WEEK >>
This COVID virus—YIKES – typing this while I drink my “Corona” beer.

I was out and saw people who were wearing their “masks” while riding their bikes in the open air. This is scary to me and I will not participate. If I feel sick or sneezing I will just stay away from people. I hope this is not a new human habit that people feel they must follow; wearing a mask. I like the freedom of the open air. I hate the current restrictions, terrible theyare.

Yes, in Boulder now, I came to Boulder to be at the Boulder Circus Center to be able to get online and charge my devices. Thank you, Cindy, for letting me be here. Here is BCC >> http://bouldercircuscenter.net/

Boulder is the most bicycle-friendly city I know of, are we riding as much as I can, unicycle, too. The weather will be like getting nicer and nicer, so biking will be nice.

WORDS TO INSPIRE YOU! >>

Inspirational quotes and motivational sayings have an amazing ability to change the way we feel about life and can change your thinking. This is why I find them so interesting and important on our paths to happiness. So what’s the secret of great quotes?

You see, the way you think and feel about yourself, including your beliefs and expectations about what is possible for you, determines everything that happens in your life. It all derives from your quality of thinking.

When you change the quality of your thinking, you change the quality of your life, sometimes instantly. Just as positive words can make someone smile, and/or, a well-timed humorous quote can make someone laugh, our thoughts react to the world in real-time. Think right—always.

You have complete control over only one thing in the universe — your thinking – and that’s where motivational quotes come in! Self-talk is so important—THINK RIGHT!

MY DAILY JOTTINGS >>
4/24—A friend of mine, John Hammink, who I met through Facebook and lived in Mountain View, California, contacted me and said he moved to Colorado. So, I drove up to Lyons to see him.

Look here to learn about John (I was quite surprised and impressed.)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Hammink 

And, when did wonderful little town Lyons is.

4/25This morning, I took my bike and unicycle off the back, I cleaned them thoroughly and then put them back. A constant process, I cleaned other parts of the van, too. A great start to the day.

4/26Met John’s landlord, Orion Molfese, who lives in the house in front, an interesting chap. He has many skills, such as he built his own home (a nice place.) I have ideas to make his home even nicer and want to help organize what he does have, we will see.

Also, we all went to visit Robbie Jack, who developed a game app, sold it, and brought in MUCH money. He lives the lifestyle that “he” wants, great to see. We played an assortment of games, quite fun.

4/27I had a package delivered to my friend Peter Davison’s house, who is near Boulder. Good to see Peter, but like all of this, age is showing up on your skin and body.

In your life, Peter, you took the skill of juggling and brought it to the limit—one of the best in the world you are. Then, as an after-birth, you took the skill of ballet dance to the extreme. Peter lives about 30 miles from Boulder, he comes to see his dad who lives in Boulder.

Here is Peter >>

So, I was in Boulder again, yes, another city (you know how I like cities.) I was going to head out to Rocky mountain national park for the night. But, I saw a smaller park on the way. Such a splendid Park it is. It will be very quiet and dark, how I like it.

At this park have been many pretty girls walking by, great to see. Sorry, no photos. 

Earlier today I took everything out of the van and clean the woodwork and the windows. seems that my fire-stove has left smoke coloring and on the inside. So, I will be giving more of a cleaning later, and limit fires in the van.

And today I went to another food bank. They gave me enough food for an army—an army of Kit.

The knee on my jeans ripped. People pay extra to have ripped knees. I don’t like it, I will be getting rid of rid of the jeans.

I wanted to let you know, I do brush my teeth every night, like a good boy.

I drove to Rocky Mountain National Park, I knew it was closed, but like to see the area with where the town of Estes Park is.

I actually drove up to the park entrance, which was gated. So, I went back to Estes Park, I found Estes lake!
I found no sign saying, “No overnight parking”, so, I was there for the night.

Cindy and I on our long hike.

4/28Had a great sleep at the lake, no one came by no one bothered me.
Got a little cold, but they have enough coverings to keep me warm through the night.

4/29-30Spent time at Boulder circus center alone here, except for a couple who people who take care of the building. Of course, there are no classes were going on.

I did work around the building to improve the place, and much weeding to help clear the grounds and make it look nice. I also did work on the van, I got new window coverings that I had to cut to fit, much better now.

5/1Planning to go on a bike ride at 11 this morning with Cindy. I will let you know how it goes later.
Did you know Cindy is a great juggler? Watch this >>

Cindy and I just got back from a five-mile hike at Betasso Preserve. A little known place, I believe, I was a great area. There were many mountain bikers up there concurring the trail; a hard ride. It was a fun hike, yet, my feet hurt.
Enjoy this video >>

    Hey Kit,
    Keep on doing what you do!
    I’ve just had open heart surgery ans I am staying with a good friend for awhile to recover.
    My 94 Chev G20 High top Van awaits outside, but it’ll be awhile before I can resume “the van life” within.
    It seems like the whole world has changed since we talked outside your van in a parking lot in Las Vegas.
    I’m all over the western states doing my business. however I still have a nice home in central Missouri where my wife and youngest daughter live.
    I’m rehabbing out here in Orange county, Ca because of the access to high quality care… sadly, i have no insurance for all of this, thank God for friends!
    Well, just catching up on e-mail and wanted you to know that someone is reading.
    Later, Blaine
