Welcome, Colorado!


Hello, neighbor! Well, ok, Colorado is not exactly a neighbor to sunny California where I make my home, but it certainly could be considered around the corner.  And today is the day the United States of America welcomed Colorado into the union and into the neighborhood, so to speak.

Back in 1876, the home of the Rockies became the 38th state and flag makers all over the country had to sew on yet another star.

I think Colorado must be a nice place: one of my more well-traveled coworkers raves about her fantastic trip to the Rockies, and there are so many former Californians living there now that the Coloradans (not Coloradoans!) complain that their state has been “Californicated”!   Yikes.
