Sunrise In Boulder On Our Own 4/20: Our 39th Anniversary!

April 20th, 2024

An advantage to being a columnist for AboutBoulder is that I answer only to my boss, and I AM my boss! Today, taking advantage of my having my hands on the controls, I can use this platform of a million and a half people to wish my darling wife the happiest of anniversaries!
