This photo of me and Maralee was taken in January 2007. When Jay was being interviewed and testing at the Marshal's Department, the kids and I spent quite a bit of the day at BIT. Maralee was planning on their cupcakes for her birthday in a couple of weeks.

The Loss of Baked in Telluride
We lost the oldest restaurant in town to a fire here last night, Baked in Telluride. It only seems fitting to blog about it since I'm sure most of my restaurant calories in Telluride were consumed here. The front porch is the only thing remaining. I'm sure rebuilding will begin as soon as possible, but it is still sad to lose an old place like this. I took this photo at lunchtime and the firemen were still having to keep water on it because the flames would start up again. Jay has been outside on the scene all day with his patrol car parked at the corner. Thank goodness no one was hurt and our fire department was able to keep surrounding structures from burning. Our fire department is completely made up of volunteers, and they do an outstanding job. The fire filled the valley so much this morning that San Miguel County put out a WENS alert.
