I am Moving

Sterling Landscape

Soon I will be moving to Pueblo for a position at CSU-Pueblo. Over the next few weeks, I will be busy, and I will not be able to continue Keeping up with Cody the podcast on regular bases. Keeping up with Cody will resume after my move is complete. I will be doing my best to maintain my weekly posts and Column. Thank you for all the support, and I apologize for any inconvenience.

My Parents House

9/11 Memorial

The House I was raised in is something of a novelty. This house was in the middle of nowhere, but you would have never known. When I was in high school, my friends were always over invited or not, and now this house has become more of a location for hosting candidates seeking higher office. 

When I return to visit I rarely leave that house because it has become one of the most relaxing places I know. Since my parents are now retired, their home has been collecting a few things mostly from estates sales. Being a fan of history, I have not minded the clutter. However, that house is always in some transition, and we will see what is next for my parent’s house.

Hanging Lake Winter

June is known for being Pride Month, and Denver has one of the biggest Pride parades in our country. Colorado also has the first openly gay Governor! None of this is hard to believe in 2019; however, if you think of where Colorado was in the 90’s it’s kind of hard to guess. In 1992 Colorado was labeled as the hate state after passing Amendment 2 that forbid homosexuals and bisexuals as a protected class. Our state has made a massive transition in my lifetime.
