rocky mountain high

1. Colorado Springs has some seriously great outdoors going on.
2. The Air Force Academy is an impressive place with its city within a city atmosphere--perhaps the same could be said of all bases, but not all bases are located in a beautiful forest, five minutes from a college town.
3. Colonel Michael L. Bell (my boss) retired after a 31-year career that was honored at his retirement ceremony on Friday at the Academy, and while I knew my boss is a smart lawyer, I had no idea how much he has contributed to the Air Force and his country, how unwilling he is to blow his own horn, and how deeply patriotic he is.
4. To be honest, I started this post on November 15, but I was too tired to finish it before Sunday.
