As My Camera Sees It · Living and Learning · May 2014


There once was a saying that all roads led to Rome and,  from what I’ve read, they had major problems with traffic congestion caused by donkey carts.

Today, no matter where I tried to drive, there were detours and traffic and lots and lots of irate drivers.

It seems that our fearless city leaders have contracted major construction or repairs for some reason or another on virtually every major thoroughfare in my neighborhood and, in fact, in the entire Denver-Metro area!   And all at the same blasted time!!!

So it appears to me that even today, after thousands of years and thousands of miles away, there’s still a problem with DONKEYS!

    1. Potholes, sinkholes, adding lanes, shutting down lanes, building light-rail, putting in new bridges, resurfacing, painting lines…Denver is a happening place right now on our roadways, Val.

      Good advice you share her. Breathe easy, change my inner channel – and maybe just turn off the radio.
      (Big breath- yes, that’s better.)

      Thanks for the visit and comment. 🙂


  1. LOL, the metroplex I live in has had half to 3/4 of the all of our freeways under construction for years now – but I see the light at the end of the tunnel – the freeway by me is getting close to completion and boy oh boy am I excited!


    1. What will you do with all the time you’ll have on your hands now, Kate, without all the construction? More time to work-out, right?

      It seems that here in CO, once they finish a project after years of work, they then decide to add another lane or light-rail and the process starts all over again.

      Ahhh, life in suburbia…

      All that frustration yesterday did lend itself to a pretty awesome work-out, though!

      Thanks for stopping by.


    1. When HERE to THERE goes from a 10-minute commute to 30 minutes, Nancy, you encounter a lot more than donkeys and monkeys. It seems to bring out the “Jack-A**” in me, unfortunately, and in many others!
