Denver L-O-V-E birds

This is my sister Mary (and y'all know me) right after we arrived in Denver, Colorado for my brothers wedding. I was so excited to wear a winter coat again and feel the cool crisp air on my face and in my lungs.

I made the "lovebirds" a painting as their wedding gift.
What do you think?

I love the texture and colors of this painting. The sad thing was- in transit a huge hole was ripped in it.

Here are the actual love birds. That's my new sister-in-law Kara and my adorable brother Ben.

They were married here on a glorious sunny morning.

The snow set such a beautiful back drop for pictures.

Look at these wicked purple shoes Kara was rockin'.

And to see my brother wearing a wedding band...weird but so awesome!

At the reception we left messages for the bride and groom on this old typewriter. So cool huh?

My cousin Alison drove 4 hours with her little girl Ella just to see us for 2.
We could all be sisters I think.

This Art Deco hotel was were Ben and Kara honeymooned and it was too beautiful not to show.

Denver is an amazing city and now holds a special place in my heart.

To my sweet lovebirds...congrats and good luck in all that your new journey together will bring.

We were in Denver last weekend! It has been cold with lots of snow, but we did have a white Christmas - with snow on the ground!

Your painting is beautiful, of course. What a bummer that it was ripped. Alison was so lucky to see you all.

I am the kind of hombre who loves to seek original stuff. Right now I'm fabricating my private photovoltaic panels. I am doing it all alone without the assistance of my men. I am using the net as the only path to acheive that. I encountered a very awesome website that explains how to build photovoltaic panels and wind generators. The site explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I am not sure about how accurate the information given there is. If some guys over here who had experience with these works can have a look and give your feedback in the thread it would be grand and I would extremely treasure it, cause I truly passion solar panel construction.

Tnx for reading this. U guys are great.
