As a break from the collapse of Western Civilization, here's a little humor. Guide Lions is a send-up of how literary pubs present themselves. Porterhouse - Jive is a parody of Vonnegut. The Escape Pod is about my father. Courageous Pulls Through is about a guy, a truck, and true love. A doggy bonus: The Art of the Mountain Mutt.

Mountain Dog Whisperer at a tender age with Buff, his collie.
Jasper T. Fetchmeister at 14 -- one year after cancer surgery. With Mountain Dog Whisperer on the deck of their home.

     Finally, some short Colorado commentary: The Turnout Concept is about mountain driving. Mean Imogene is about the Imogene Pass Run between Ouray and Telluride. Then there's How to Speak Coloradan.

Warm wishes for a fabulous 2021.
