Ramblings of a Rambler – April 2014
~ By Bill Watson, Publisher, Prime Time For Seniors ~
I’m sitting at my desk looking out at a beautiful Monday morning. Yes, spring has arrived! We have a nice paper for you this month. If you haven’t noticed our page count is back to normal, our advertisers have come out of winter hibernation. Thank you to all the advertisers who want to share their message with our Prime Timers. We do get results! And we appreciate your support.
Spring Time! The time of renewal. Life breaks though dormancy and explodes into an array of blossoms and fragrance. I look forward to a few days of sneezing until the pollen settles down. I can’t wait to start hiking the beautiful trails around the Front Range. Nothing energizes my soul like a few hours with mother nature. . .
Speaking of the beautiful outdoors, the photo’s you’ve been seeing on our front page are the work of Tim Seibert. I worked with Tim for a few years in Boulder. Tim headed up the circulation department at the Daily Camera. I thought Tim was great at his job. What I didn’t know until a few years ago was his talent behind a camera. I’ve spent my entire life around great photographers and Tim has the gift. His love and passion are the outdoors. His outdoor photos are breathtaking. Check them out at timothyseibert.com. Tim decided to leave the newspaper game and follow his passion for photography and is making a living at architecture photography. If you want to see talent first hand check out his web site at http://flatironspromedia.com/ . Thanks for the great photos Tim!
Spring, Easter, Passover and Baseball. What more can one month give us. Although I’m a life long Philly fan, I’m excited about the Rockies this year. I love going to the stadium and enjoying a game on a slow night. I still have yet to find a hot dog that beats the ones you get at a ballpark. Nothing like ’em. . .
Our designer, Rosanne Nelson, has a great idea. She suspects there are a lot of senior artists that would enjoy showing their work in the pages of the Prime Time. So be it!
If you are an artist and you would like to share your art with our readers send us a photo. . .
We’ve added a new column; Keeping the Faith by Ronnie McBrayer. We’ve tried to find a writer who could convey the spiritual side of life without offending anyone from different religions. After reading Ronnie’s work I think we found the right person. I really like the message he passes along to our readers. . .
Enjoy this spring. Take advantage of the season of renewal. Call an old friend, mend a broken relationship. Enjoy your day, its a gift!
Oh! We have six tickets to see the Kingston Trio. See the ad on page 24. I’d like to give three couples a chance at the tickets. First three couples to call can have the tickets. Call 303-495-4506 and ask for Bill.
