Some of us, namely myself, climbed onto an elliptical machine at 7 a.m. Friday, turned on the fancy television connected to it and saw news of the biggest bank failure in history with Washington Mutual seized by the federal government.
That’s the week it’s been.
Let’s make this one a lighter read:
• The Blue Moon Bar & Grille patio is now open. Check it out, or at least see the crowds, at Seventh
and Main streets.
• Still have that Colorado Mountain Winefest green wristband? It’s good for a free lift ride from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. today, Color Sunday, at Powderhorn Ski Resort.
