Friday Foto...Meet Max and Don Gearing Up for Delta's Deltarado Days. I met them yesterday. I just couldn't help but notice Max's antics around the tractor. He was so much fun to watch, because he was having so much fun chasing the tractor. Some dogs like to chase their tails, but Max goes for bigger things. Well he's a pretty big dog, so I guess the tractor doesn't bother him. It looks like he wants the tractor to play with him. Don is driving the tractor. He stopped and introduced himself and Max to me. Don is gearing up for Delta's Deltarado  Days. He plans to have a couple of tractors in the parade.   Deltarado Days is a big summer time event in Delta, Colorado. Events are already underway for the 2013 festival.

The Annual Delta, CO Rock and Gem Show is Almost Here. This yearly event is hosted by the Delta County, CO Rock Wranglers. It's Saturday, June 1st at the Bill Heddles Recreation Center. This is a free event open to the public. Vendors, and the interested public, come from all over the Western Slope to display their treasures. Some of them even have their own mines nearby. The Rock Wranglers are more than happy to explain the  different displays, and talk about where the rocks come from. I find this really interesting...especially when the mine is in this area. At one time or another, we've all been drawn to a pretty rock on the ground. Members of The Delta County Rock Wranglers never grew out of that stage. The goal of the group is share their knowledge, and passion, with the public. Th...
