Hot legs, in more ways than one |

Hot legs, in more ways than one

Sunlight opens today and I have one question:Will I be able to walk on Saturday?I’m headed up the hill today to cover opening day activities, which should be pretty stellar considering this week’s snow. But, since I haven’t worked out since the first time Kid Rock and Pam Anderson broke up, I expect to have some burning leg muscles when I wake up Saturday morning.Speaking of hot legs, tickets for the April 2 Rod Stewart concert at the Pepsi Center in Denver go on sale Monday. I love that guy, and so does my mom along with every other Baby Boomer-age mother I know.It’s gotta be the hot pink hot pants. And those sordid “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” lyrics … “If you really need me just reach out and touch me.”That’ll get anybody going.Rod the Bod just came out with a new CD titled, “Still The Same … Great Rock Classics of Our Time.” He sings tunes by Bob Seger. Like most Midwest natives, I also love him, along with Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, and John Fogerty.Sounds like the perfect Christmas present to Dian from her favorite (and only) daughter.Dad, you’ll thank me later.

It’s happening in Carbondale to boot: First Fridays Gallery Walk and holiday tree lighting, meet Santa and enjoy free hot chocolate and cookies, 5-7 p.m., Fourth Street Plaza and Main Street, downtown Carbondale. Information: 963-2733This is why I’d kick it up here: I just love this First Fridays concept the Carbondale Council on Arts and Humanities has created. In one evening a person can take in a variety of art from paintings to pottery drink wine, munch on hors d’oeuvres, meet new friends and bump into old ones. Even better, today’s gallery walk will be illuminated with the town’s festive Christmas lighting and a visit by Old St. Nick himself. He’s the life of the party, that guy.

It’s happening in Glenwood Springs to boot: Procrastination Celebration Bazaar, holiday luncheon, bake sale, arts and crafts, and baked goods, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., First United Methodist Church, Ninth Street and Cooper Avenue, Glenwood Springs. Information: 945-6232This is why I’d kick it up here: If these ladies really think Dec. 2 is procrastinating for Christmas shopping, then they obviously have not met April Clark. I’ve been known to shop into the late hours of Christmas Eve night back in Indy, so the first weekend of December doesn’t quite meet the level of procrastination I’ve mastered. If I can say I have a Christmas gift marked off my list by Dec. 2, then Glenwood’s not the only thing freezing over this week.
