Jerry posts’ by mistake

Last night in my attempt to edit and update this blog, I published by mistake. I know this confused some readers. Within a second of publishing I received this:

What happened with the post?

and all this am:

Do you know you have a broken link?

Yes, I know. I published by mistake. In finance we used to call this the fat finger mistake. It happens. It was usually a very costly mistake. Luckily, I wasn’t trading. So, no harm no foul. But, it was a very Jerry move. I know you were expecting some very entertaining content and got none. Thanks for understanding and continuing to support this blog. Jerry.

Reader feedback, comments & pictures


Reader feedback, comments, emojis and pictures were strong this week. Much appreciated. Keep up the good work.

In keeping with this week’s title, I received this:

There can never be too many Jerrys’.

I’m not sure my readers would agree. But from one Jerry to another, I certainly can not disagree. And when Jerry receives feedback such as this he goes cuckoo for cocoa puffs:

Always a good read


That looks awesome!!!


Looks beautiful!

as well as

Fabulous pics. Thanks for sharing!!

Thank you for your kind words. And we continue to get these comments:

Do you ever work?

as well as

I love your life

and this

Hope you having fun

This is work. It may look easy, but it’s not. I get it. Life could be better and it could be much much worse. I’m thankful for this life and every opportunity. And yes we do have fun while working. Work can be fun; remember that.

We received a whole litany of emojis this week.

βœŒπŸΌπŸ‘πŸŒ΄β›·πŸŒŽβ›·πŸ‘πŸ‘ πŸŽ„πŸ€£πŸŒˆ

Thank you. I like getting emoji’s. They make me smile. As well as this did from one faithful reader:

Love the Breck shout out! We’re ya there for Breck Pride??

I love Breck and have pride. I think you have your dates wrong . . .Second Annual Breck Pride 2018, March 7-11! Enjoy.

And I received this gem from one reader . . . I think we are referring to different things:

Blond and Brunette, I used to love the tuffer

Then you woke up. I skied The Beav and Vail in the same day . . .not sure what you’re talking about.

And a few of you picked up the DMB reference:

Ants marching, I love it Dave Mathews was playing in my head.



As the 2018 Winter Olympics games come to an end, now we can reflect on what an amazing two weeks it was. Could the Olympics in Pyeongchang turn out to be something more than just the games? Certainly an interesting thought, for sure. We did just see the North and South Koreans working together for a greater good. Anyway, Gold medals were won and lives were changed forever. While an ill-timed mistake shattered some dream to pieces. Athletes, from all countries, should be congratulated on just making the games. We forget how hard they worked and sacrificed to just get there and compete. And to the medals winner, congratulations on winning a medal and making your country proud. Job well done.


With only seven weeks, give or take, until closing day the 2017/2018 winter season is flying by. It was a slow start, with a dismal January, but things are in full swing now. Happy times are here again. Get out now before it’s too late.


Resort conditions are the best they have been all season. This is not a joke, even though some of you think it is. With each new snowfall conditions just get better. Now is the time people. Get off the couch and get your a$$ out there. It’s the best time of the season on the mountain. Get out there and enjoy it. Conditions do not get much better than this. Yes, really.
