Howdy! I have a love/hate relationship with Rally. Last week I was getting coffee and I asked the girls at Lotus Up if they were ready for the nuttiness. We sighed and girded our collective loins. There were some bikers standing in line behind me and the lady jovially said, “Hey now!” I quickly explained … Continue reading The Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of Money
Good morning! I hope you’ve had a great week so far – for some reason Thursday always seems to surprise me. “Oh, hello again! Didn’t expect to meet you so soon!” Today is even worse as somehow July has slunk off and we’d barely gotten to know each other! This week I’ve been working on … Continue reading Lead Love
Good morning! It’s been almost nine months since I started this job. I hit the ground running when I started, and everything up until the 4th of July has felt like a reaction and trying to (just barely) keep up. There were lots of times when I was overwhelmed. My word for 2019 has been … Continue reading Onward And Upward In The Mile High City
Hello Lead (and friends of Lead)! Lately I’ve been considering time. How both long and short it all feels – particularly summer. If you have a second check out this blog post https://waitbutwhy.com/2015/12/the-tail-end.html I read it a few years ago and it’s stuck with me. Looking at our time visually (particularly with regards to our relationships) is … Continue reading Time Is A Many Splendored Thing
Happy Thursday! I’m kind of a history nerd, so one of my favorite parts of the 4th of July weekend was Plains Speaking People show at the Homestake Opera House. Six people got up and talked about a memory of working at Homestake, or how Homestake shaped their lives. It was an amazing evening remembering … Continue reading Pah-sties or Pay-sties
Happy Independence Day! It seems like the 4th of July kind of snuck up on us this year! Where did June go? How is it already here? But nonetheless here we are! So much going on! I hope you’ll come celebrate with us in Lead and see what’s new. Come down to the Chamber Information … Continue reading Happy 4th of July 2019!
Good Morning! It’s funny when you go unicorn hunting. What at first seems like an impossible animal to find actually becomes something you see everywhere. I had so many great interviews this month for the Assistant Director position. Sadly, I could only hire one person (at this time). Hayley started Monday, some of you may … Continue reading Happy Summer Days
Good morning! Isn’t it wonderful when we have soaking thunderstorms at night and the days are scrubbed clean and beautiful? Happy Thursday! One of the things I think is pretty cool about Lead is the public staircases. “Sidewalks that are STAIRS?!” people who don’t live here say. I know… inconceivable! If you ever walk around … Continue reading Stairways to Heaven
Happy Thursday! I was having dinner with some friends the other day and after hearing about 3% of my life story they said, “After all that, why did you ever pick crusty old Lead?” Why DIDN’T I pick Lead? Besides my long family connection to this place I do kind of have an almost irrational … Continue reading How Much Do You Love Lead?
