    For many this will be a relief for one or two others it is a disappointment.

    I will not be attending tonight’s city council meeting. I’m having too much fun enjoying the rocky mountain high of Colorado with its majestic mountain vistas and looking across miles of time and space from the top of Pikes Peak.

    I am hoping someone will take my place in the peanut gallery to give us all an update of tonight’s proceedings.
