Summer in the Rockies

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to drop a quick line to all of you to let you know that I'm going away for the rest of the summer...yes, you guessed it--to the Rockies. Yesterday I accepted a job at a luxury dude ranch in Colorado. (Please stop laughing now.) This place is actually very swank, and I won't be wrangling horses or anything. :-) I am going to be one of 3 front desk people, so it's basically a summer office job, but in a fab location. Here is their website, should anyone be interested:

The main reason that I'm emailing is because I will have no cell phone service there, and very limited access to internet. So, I didn't want anyone thinking I had fallen off the face of the earth because I wasn't returning calls, etc... Apparently the nearest little town has a public library with internet, but I only get one day a week off (which will always vary), so I don't know how often I'll get to town. There is a phone in the lodge where I'll be living, but since it rings into all three staff lodging facilities and there's no way of knowing who will pick it up, I probably shouldn't bother giving it out. But, my mom has it if there's an emergency. Otherwise, I've got a trusty old calling card and free time from 8pm (Mountain time) on, so I'll definitely be making calls when possible. I'll have lots of "stuck on the ranch" nights to write people, so don't hesitate to send a letter or postcard or something. :-)

Anyway, I guess that's all for now. I hope all of you have a great summer and I'll see you in September (as the song goes...).
