Apple, Fudge, Chili & Gloves – Fun With Barry and Julia. Today is 02/27/10 in Colorado Springs.

Edit more of the Chicago photos (still need to edit the one’s from New York…).

iPhone is acting up more regularly this morning and getting to be a bother. An error message continues to pop up and disappear claiming an incompatible device is plugged in (when there is nothing plugged in to the phone).

Barry and Julia are up and eating oatmeal – I join them.

We have fun, goofing around.

By noon we are all ready and leave for the day, beginning with the Apple store and a Starbuck’s.

I am told at Apple to make a Genius Bar appointment and to back-up my iPhone (just in case there needs to be a replacement). Genius Bar appointment is for 8:30 p.m.

We leave for Manitou Springs http://www.manitousprings.org/ , it is a site seeing day.

We make a quick stop at a few churches on the way, one is open to photograph, St. Mary’s. Julia and Barry take a moment of reflective prayer while I while I look for photos. Julia has a peaceful prayer experience that is unusual to her experience at the churches they have attended.

On to Manitou.

Manitou is a fun little town, and we walk around. I see Barry and Julia’s favorite places; the deli where we eat, the Cliff House hotel used as Tesla’s place in the Prestige movie, the penny arcade Barry loves, the fudge/candy store (they carry Albanese) – we all buy something.

A drive through the Garden of the Gods returning to the house for my laptop and the trip to see the Apple Genius who backs up my phone for me and then cleans the docking port. The phone problem ceases.

We have plans to eat including time at the Broadmore but all that changes as we drive. I have been craving chili so Julia calls her mom, Dawn, from the road to ask her where there might be a good place for chili. Dawn says that they have just made chili (of the two times this winter!) – So we detour to Craig and Dawn’s house, Julia’s parents.

Dawn likes Olympic curling!

Chili hits the spot.

Craig and I have a long talk on Church history and evangelism.

Barry calls the Broadmore – they have my gloves!

We pick up my gloves and drive back to Barry and Julia’s apartment, all tired and sleepy.

    That was such a fun day! We literally all fell into bed, we were so tired at the end. Good times!

    Hey Jeff,
    I’ve enjoyed reading about your adventures over the past week (Chicago, CO Springs, Manitou Springs, etc.). I was cleaning out old Emails, and ran across one of yours. I have to admit, I didn’t give it (your JumpStart Email) the attention it deserved; I’ll blame it on my recent promotion, and new responsibilities).

    Anyway…I’m glad I looked at it, again, because it led me to your Daily Log, and allowed me this familiar experience of you.

    (What’s up with that Curling? The only “sport” (I believe), that you can participate in, be 5 months pregnant, and win an Olympic medal!)

    We haven’t connected much, “lately”, but I want to remind you that you have friends in Alameda ( greater Bay Area) if you’re plans ever take you to the area. By the way…Alameda has some historic churches, some dating to the late 1800s. If San Francisco is ever in your plan, Alameda could be a side trip, or you are welcome to use us as your hub. BART and/or the Bay Ferries make SF very close.

    Please update my Email address, if you haven’t already done so.

    Take care…love,
