Sharing my adventures in the Colorado mountains in the summer, and beautiful Ft. Worth Texas in the winter.

When I was a small child, there weren't many supermarkets around, and most folks shopped at what we called the corner grocer. They should certainly be on the endanger list these days.
I passed one (a family owned, independent grocery store), on my walk the other day that has been in this same location for seventy years. I can remember the little grocery store where my grandmother shopped. It was smaller than this, it's name I think was Sprowl's. Back then, you could charge your groceries. I can remember my grandfather complaining about the size if the bill when it came, but I don't think that ever slowed my grandmother down. Do you still have small grocers in your area?
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
