Okay, okay, so I'm normally more of a stick-in-the-mud but this year I got my "geek on" (this year's theme) at the annual Snowdown in downtown Durango. I laughed hard at the funny --and very bawdy--follies dress rehearsal on Tuesday night, but seriously -- hah! -- some of the writing was terrific -- someone called it "marginally controlled chaos," which it was, and there we were right up front by the stage. The next night I joined my niece Lynzi at the Summit where "Dr. Robert," a Beatles cover band from Crested Butte, Colorado, was playing. The place was rocking and we did our share, but I was probably the oldest person in the room. Oh, well, I was neatly tucked into my "geek" cover and I love to dance, so I did for hours. The band was top notch, excellent musicians and played all of our favorite Beatle songs one right after another. Western Colorado, catch 'em if you can!
