My family came to what is now Boulder, Colorado, arriving when Boulder was three months old. My Great-great-grandfather was Carson W. Arbuthnot and with him, he brought his four sons and a son-in-law. Since a little child I have loved the history of this beautiful mountain area, the legacy's of the Natives who were here when my family arrived, and the way our community has grown to what it is today. My blog is dedicated to seeking evidence of all that happened. The good, the bad and the ugly, I will share the evidence of what I find.

I also share Boulder County and Colorado History through entertaining storytelling. Dressed as one of my early Boulder County ancestors, I will make you laugh, smile and sometimes cry as I share the stories of the people who came before us and who established these communities that we enjoy today. Please visit my storytelling and events pages for information on performances.

Welcome to my blog, I hope you enjoy your time here.

A south wind today and not very warm.

We went to club this afternoon at Mrs. Bakers.
Had a very nice meeting.
Dad went to Niwot this P.M.
Chanaldene Burke reported quite sick.
Fire truck out to Mr. Swerengin's this P.M.

The Batchelder's Neighbor's Club meeting as reported by Helen Anderson.
Hostess:  Elsie Baker
Roll call:  My favorite recipe

Oh how I wish I could know what the ladies said that their favorite recipe was as their names were called.
