[Silver Plume, Colorado, pop. 203]

I raised so much Cain about my “modest” hotel accommodations at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration that the Democratic National Committee finally relented and upgraded my reservation. (See http://jpgmag.com/photos/3492371)

I think the DNC looked at my last name and made a snap decision to treat me like “American Royalty.” After all, the word “KING” is a derivative of my last name.

So, we were directed to “Windsor Hotel,” which, under the circumstances, should have pleased us very much.

[Silver Plume, Colorado, an old silver mining town, is located along I-70 about an hour west of Denver. It is the western terminus of the famous Georgetown Loop Historic R.R.

The VMI Cadets marched in this year’s Inaugural Parade, just as I did in 1969. If you would like a look, log on here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhtLB8ENpss.]

As always, thanks for stopping by!

    What lovely accommodations!! They truly did know how to treat a king!! And as an FYI, 'soldier' is a derivative of Windsor Hotel (as well as swindler, woodiest and wildest among many others). Best of all.....it's for sale! Maybe the JPG consortium could purchase it for future visits!!!!

    And did you have the room right up on top?? A very 'gingerbread' little cottage. those angled railings give it a quirkly look. Glad they 'upgraded' you Sir Knight.

    Well I have to say it's the very least they could do for you!!

    This is such a grand and great old hotel/building.
    We have something similar to this here in town.
    In the late 1800s "Brookside" was an elegant upscale hotel but the early part of the 20th century saw the grand 3 story 5 star est.fall on hard times.

    The owners sold it and it operated as a house of 'ill fame" until the 1930s.
    It was sold again and reopened as a boarding house until the late 70s.
    As of now it's an art gallery.
