THIN AIR CAN BE A MIND ENHANCING EXPERIENCE….

A couple of weeks ago my wife and I visited our grand-kids and in Denver, Colorado, the mile high city. During a side trip into the mountains, we visited a child’s indoor interactive playground, in Beaver Creek, Co. (altitude approximately 8,500 feet). While I enjoyed watching the kids having a blast, I noticed on a near-by wall, on a bulletin board,  a couple of very official looking documents. They weren’t identified as such, but when I started reading them, I didn’t have to be Phi Beta Kappa to realize they were advance copies of Obama’s and Romney’s acceptance speeches, for their respective national conventions later that summer. No doubt about it.

Just so you don’t think I’m making this up, or the thin air is playing with my mind, here they are. Both speeches, I must admit, are as clear and to the point as their campaign rhetoric. What a surprise that was!

IF YOU WANNA GO WAY UP THERE, YOU BETTER RIDE THIS LIFT… IT’S KINDA FUN, ACTUALLY

That evening, I told my son about Obama’s and Romney’s speeches that someone had posted at the indoor playground. He looked at me, frowned and cocked his head, “Dad, don’t you dare.”  I just smirked and said, “Hey, I’m covered. It’s called freedom of speech.”

Thin air included, our visit with our grand-kids was absolutely fantastic! And, we can’t wait for the next visit. But, I promise you one thing, for sure; before our next visit, I will do some serious training before we leave for those mountains again.
