As my faithful readers might have already surmised, I spent the last few days in the hospital along with my old nemesis, Mr. Bowel Obstruction. What? That sounds familiar to you? Didn’t I just go to the hospital a day or two before Christmas while still in Denver? Yes Ma’am (or Sir), I certainly did. But apparently bowel obstructions have no rules. I will tell you about my experiences next week. But I’m feeling much better and back at it. (Whatever “it” is.)…..

He is a loyal Broncos fan (as am I), and wouldn’t allow himself to root for anyone else in our division. But I like Mahomes and I cannot lie. By the way, this was the second Super Bowl that I watched from a Mountain Vista Medical Center hospital bed. Back in 2011, when I was in the same hospital for 28 days, I watched the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. I don’t want it to become my Super Bowl tradition, however.
