Last weekend, Robert and I celebrated our very first wedding anniversary. We decided to do what abnormal fitness people do – go
torture ourselves on “The Incline.” The Incline is a trek up an old cable car route in Manitou Springs, CO, where the tracks have been removed but the ties are still there. You basically stair climb for one mile. It was pretty challenging – especially when it started to rain, then pour!
We made it to the top, but others weren’t so lucky. The experience was great…and even better because Robert started it with coffee in hand (only him, sheesh).
Anyway, we stayed at a bed and breakfast in Colorado Springs called “Spurs & Lace.” Great name for a B & B founded by a “retired” guy, ha! I put retired in quotes because Owner Leo, as everyone calls him, is 81 years old.
He’s a retired schoolteacher. But, at age 65 he didn’t actually retire, instead he opened up a B & B!
He’s famous for: Telling hilarious stories at the breakfast table (he’s a teacher after all), riding motorcycles, winning the heart of one of his B & B guests (who’s quite a bit younger than him), and…what inspired us most…
