Steve’s Progress

As of last night Steve had driven about 1000 miles and was in Nappanee, Ontario.  He said he will be very happy to cross into the U.S. today because of the high prices in Canada.  But the route he is taking is the most direct to drive to Wisconsin so there wasn’t much choice.  Unfortunately this also means he must drive through Chicago.
My mother and I went to Pueblo yesterday to get a copy of the police investigation report and check on Kathy’s house.  The report was shoddy crap.  I did more thorough detective work when I was 19 years old employed in a credit bureau where my job was finding people who skipped out on paying their bills.  I’ve never seen a police report before but each law enforcement officer writes what they did and saw, who they talked to, and what various persons said.  They contradicted each other several times with very hard core facts.  We just have to try and forget it all and go on.  Nothing anyone does now can bring Kathy back to life.
Manitou Springs, Colorado
Eventually I’ll get around to taking pictures here in Manitou Springs and writing about our town……..maybe next month after the tourist traffic lessens.  It’s a busy little town right now as there has been something going on every week.  Last weekend was the annual Pikes Peak Marathon.  A 47 year old local won it for the 6th year in a row.  This weekend Manitou Springs is having a Mountain Music Festival.  I just have to open a few windows or sit on the deck to hear the music – that’s how close we are to the action.
