Rocky Mountain Hiiiiigh! Coloradooooo!

MARK TWAIN AWARD scaled new heights recently when he journeyed to LEADVILLE, COLO., elevation 10,200 feet. Leadville bills itself as the highest-elevation community in North America. Those are some 14,000-foot peaks in the background.

Give a man a fish, feed him for a day; teach Mark Twain Award to fish, feed him for a lifetime

The "Life on the Mississippi" author recently accompanied TH ARTIST MIKE DAY on his lunch-break fishing excursion to the Peosta Channel.
Without a log raft, they were relegated to fishing from shore. MARK TWAIN AWARD opted for the pink Mister Twister lure and within minutes was witness to a 13-INCH LARGEMOUTH BASS splashing about. With a turkey-strips lunch awaiting them back at the office, Mike and Mark Twain Award chose to release their catch.

I know it's only rock 'n' roll but Mark Twain Award likes it

MARK TWAIN AWARD traveled to POTOSI, WIS., on Independence Day to ROCK with tri-state area groove merchants SID V & THE HUMAN RESOURCES.
It was like "Highway 61 Revisited" down to "Sweet Home Alabama" when Mark Twain Award climbed "Jacob's Ladder" to "Wipe Out" with a "Brown Eyed Girl."
Mark Twain Award was feeling nothing like "Johnny B. Goode." In fact, he had something like the "Folsom Prison Blues" once the show had ended and we had to place him back in Emily Kittle's handbag.
It was a great time while it lasted, however, as Mark Twain Award said he "Can't Help Falling in Love" with vocalist/guitarist/bon vivant Matt Kittle and his "Blue Suede Shoes."
