I was greeted at the airport by a real Cowboy! They have darling retired Cowboys and Cowgirls who walk around and ask you if you need help. What?? I knew I loved this state.
I also get my own airplane when I move there, that will be dedicated to just me (and the other 4,939,456 people that live in the state). The sign on the outside of the plane that reads
"This plane was dedicated to the people of Colorado on May 11, 2008."
Good news -I flew home with no panic attack freak outs, as I am a nervous Nelly flyer these days, but the Bad news I did sit right next to a gum smacker. I came this close (pinch fingers close together) to asking her to stop, but glad I didn't as she then started a conversation with me and was really nice. I figured the more she talked the less she would crack her gum. I watched Fame on my Iphone and loved it! Perfect plane ride movie.
Moving to Denver in 5 months and counting.... Yikes!
