"When I got to the Balfour today, Henry was sitting in his room ready to go out. We grabbed his sunglasses and hit the road for a nice sunny drive to Golden. Henry was thrilled with the weather today and in a great mood. As soon as we got to Golden, he said that he remembered a lot about it, and when he saw the "M" on the side of the mountain, he began telling me about School of Mines, saying that many of his friends had gone there. We took a nice stroll down the main drag, looking at all the shops. We stopped at the Astor House to read about the history of the building. On the way back, we listened to Elvis and had so much fun singing along!"
We hope you all take some time to out there and enjoy the sunshine this weekend!

This week, our client Morty took a trip with his concierge down to the antique mall! They had a blast!
"Today, Morty and I tried a new outing and had a blast! He was ready to take a drive, so we popped on his sunglasses, put the top down and headed out. Our soundtrack for today was The Sound of Music, and he knew a lot of the songs and we both sang along. Our first stop was the Armadillo antique mall, which we have never visited before. It was a bright and busy place today and we had lots of fun looking at all the crazy and old items that were for sale. We got some water and strolled around the booths saying hi to everyone and laughing at the more unusual items. Morty said he didn't understand how anyone would find anything they needed to shop for, and we talked about how it was more for just looking around and seeing what caught your eye. He said he had never seen anything like it. Afterwards, we decided to go to Steuben's on Wadsworth, and something about this restaurant really resonated with him. He just loved it! The set up with the old bar and the diner-feel and all of the little kids just made him happy… He kept remarking about how great it was. The coffee and sandwiches were good too, so all in all, we had a great day!"
This week, Fred and his concierge spent a day at the Denver Aquarium!
"Fred and I had a fantastic time visiting the aquarium today! He remarked the whole way through that he had never been anywhere like it and how amazing it was. He talked about what a large operation the aquarium seemed to be, how many fish there where, and how there was so much to learn. We saw sharks and jellyfish and we were even in time to see the mermaids, which Fred found pretty hilarious. We had lunch right next to a big tank and watched the fish and the stingrays. Fred even stood up out of his wheelchair to watch me touch one. Fun day!"
"Today, Horace and I put the convertible top down and took a long drive to the lake, admiring all the houses along the way. I live in that neighborhood and happen to be fostering some very small fluffy puppies, so I drove to the front of my house and brought one out to him as a surprise. He loved it! We cuddled the puppy for a few minutes and then drove to our favorite restaurant on the lake. The waitresses and the manager know him now and they are so kind, and Horace really likes them as well so it's a fun place to go! What a great afternoon!"
Wow! Sounds like they had a great time together!
"Today, George and I went for a sunny walk in Commons Park and had lunch at a new restaurant on Platte Street. We sat right across from some construction going up and had a great time people (and machine!) watching. George remarked that he was just as old as one of the boys we watched walk by when he had started delivering papers, and, when I asked him if he remembered any of the big headlines, he mentioned the headline when Lindbergh had crossed the Atlantic in his plane. Incredible!"
"Today, I spent some time with Alberta and Marlon! I put clean sheets on the bed, and made dinner for them. After dinner, Marlon told stories of his time in the army and a hilarious one about his and Alberta’s ill-fated wedding night. If you haven't heard it, I'm sure you could persuade him to tell it again! They are a delightful couple, who very much appreciated my help today. I am so thankful I had the opportunity to meet and help them!"
We hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
This week, our client Norma went on a movie date with one of our concierges at the Nature and Science Museum! They had so much fun together!
"Norma was ready to rock and roll when I arrived. Next, we were off to the Nature and Science Museum! It was an IMAX movie extravaganza! In fact, we saw 3 different movies. “Mysteries of China” was Norma’s favorite. We had fun checking out an exhibit and roaming the gift shop afterwards."
"Today, June and I took a walk around her neighborhood before it got too hot. Then, we went through some of her travel photos, which brought back some good memories for her! We had lunch and afterwards we drove to the grocery store for a few things she needed. After putting away the groceries, we played some card games."
Sometimes, the simplest things are the most enjoyable! We hope your weekend is filled with simple pleasures, like sunshine and good company.
"Today, Ginny and I decided to go downtown to Union Station and walk around. We did a quick errand for her at Target before we headed downtown. We got downtown and had a really nice time walking around all of the activity. She was in a very good mood and was happy to be outdoors. We found a place that had a raw bar so she could have a glass of wine and some oysters. It was a beautiful night!"
Happy Sunday! We hope you all have had a great week!
