Susan’s Sidetracks – Where’s the Saddle?
Directions, they are not everyone’s cup of tea; that’s my philosophy! If you’ve listened over the years you probably know that every so often I get a little lost at times; it’s that whole getting old and becoming senile syndrome. At least that’s what I say, but other people tell me that it’s nothing new and I’ve been a little dazed and confused for years. I get more than just a little flack from everyone here at the station for everything from my parking skills to always being lost or as I call it, distracted, thus they have inspired me to start taking pictures during my adventures.
Each week I’m going to put up a picture from one of my wanderings to see if you can identify where in the heck I am at! Just put your guesses in the facebook comments section below and next week I’ll reveal the location I found myself in along with another clue to where I am lost.
This week’s clues
Oh joy. I had to go see a dentist for a complicated root canal and the last time I’d been to his office was 6 years ago. I gave myself plenty of time to be on time for my appointment. As I checked in with the receptionist at Alpine Dental she was politely confused. I told that I was Susan and I had an appointment with Dr. Harvey. She told me he hadn’t been at this location in 5 years…I had to laugh in my embarrassment . SO, after I called MY dentist and rescheduled the appointment I found myself with a bit of spare time to just wander
thru this most captivating area. With the afternoon to myself, I could have a bite to eat, shop for clothes, enjoy a carbonated adult beverage…the possibilities were endless.
This picture shows part of a piece of artwork that really spoke to my heart. Do you know where I am?
’Caballo de Colorado’. This very colorfully decorated stallion was painted in a Mexican Talavera style by Amy Brackenbury. The artists’s signature is written around the the right rear hoof. The horse is located at the Old Town Plaza in Fort Collins, Colorado.
