We have had a great time in Bonanza, CO getting to know Jack & Betty and getting spoiled with delicious country cooking. I loved hearing stories and also Betty’s wisdom. She said she has learned not to worry, because in 20 minutes it will be something else. I said that’s good advice, she said, “it’s been my experience,” with a laugh.
We told them our close encounter with skunks, and were told about a couple of their dogs getting sprayed once and how the smell got over everything. Back then, their insurance company actually gave them money and sent oil to help repair the smell damage-new paint, needed to clean all their clothes, carpet, furniture, etc. I can only imagine how undelightful it would’ve been had a skunk sprayed around our van that night, phew!
I was amused that despite living so close to Pagosa Springs, they had never gone to the hot springs. “What? Bath in the stinky waters?!”
We also toured some fascinating historic homes.
