    Hi, I want to tell you about a little girl. Carson Perry is the daughter of a local TV anchor. Her little sister ( 3 at the time) was diagnosed with leukemia this past November. A few weeks ago they were outside playing and Pearl Monroe, known as Roe Roe, told her big sister that her legs were tired. Carson Perry said ” it’s ok Roe Roe, I’ll carry you.” So sweet and heart warming. You can read more about this precious family on Chad Tucker’s page. ( their Daddy) .

    Before Covid19 I would go with my daughter to a local senior center and host a Bingo game. We would bring snacks and prizes for everyone.

    Dear TA,
    I am not a young person. I’m a senior citizen but look 20 years younger.

    I live in Aspen. For over 30 years now, I’ve been walking the streets of the West End. (Oh my God, I just admitted to being a street walker). It started at least 30 years ago when I was watching a dog on Gillespie near the entrance to the Music Tent parking lot. I would walk up to the Hickory House to get the 2 daily papers to read. (3 on Thursday). I got to know the next door neighbors so I started bringing a paper for them. Then I got to know other people in the neighborhood so I brought papers for them. Even the police recognize me after so many years and we always wave to each other. I don’t know all of them but THEY know me. (That’s a somewhat scary thought.). My poor messenger bag is getting quite worn out.

    Now a lot of these people have dogs, so every dog gets a dog treat. Bigger ones for the big dogs, smaller bear shaped ones for the little dogs. And these dogs learn really fast that papers mean treats. I just added the “new” Episcopal priest when I ran into him while he was picking the tiny strawberries from the patch on the east side of the rectory.

    One of the dogs, Sweetie #2 now as Sweetie #1 has been dead for quite awhile, has to be picked up after eating her treat, turned belly up and get her belly rubbed. Then she has to “escort” me to the gate to get another half a treat. All of the dogs have learned to associate me with a treat. Not a bad way to start the day. 🙂 I get exercise and love from dogs. I’m a neighborhood watch. Bear watch. Even saw a rare pine Martin on Francis St. How cool was that! I get exercise. The Cross Town shuttle drivers all know me. 🙂

    I hope you enjoyed my little missive on the West End. I hope you have another book coming out soon and a talk at Explorer Books to go along with it. We have met there.
