Lots of good things happened today. Pueblo Electrics came out to assess a hook up for our music and art house with regard to electricity. It too, has been stripped of most wiring and will require a lot of work. We love that Jeremy, Kylie and Paulie (from Pueblo Electrics) showed up way ahead of schedule to take care of us. Our big thanks to Ron and Brian (owners) who always make sure OTR is taken care of and then making it easy on our pocket book too! You rock!
Next was a visit from Loretta Sword of the Chieftain newspaper who came by to do a profile on me & how it all started (OTR & RV”). Loretta has covered Pueblo House since inception and was very pleased to see the final project 95% completed.
Lastly we’ve been paying Glen regular visits, since being taken to hospital after suffering a stroke on Friday. I found him on the floor in his kitchen when I swung by after my meeting. He’s been plagued with a nasty cold & congestion and, in his stubbornness, would not go to hospital when encouraged by many to do so. We managed to get him smiling and he’s recovering well in spite of being on the floor for 9 hours trying to get help.
More busy days ahead with meetings, supplies to pick up from home depot, so we can get PH house completed, only to start on the Stone House next. We’ve been donated a filing cabinet and two bookcases which we really needed. Thank you Teresa Trujillo for making this happen.
It was a great meeting early on Friday with the folks at CO Workforce who will be working with us (through “My Youth Link”, where together we’ll be teaching and coaching kids in a variety of creative things like movie making, art, video editing, photography, etc.
