What Makes Me Smile:

Sitting on my back porch with family and friends in the beautiful Colorado weather. My two Rhodesian Ridgebacks, fresh powder on a Bluebird day, and SCUBA diving.

The willingness of Dr. Olsen to be friendly and positive in his conversation/advice. That is so very important and valuable!
