Hope you’ve enjoyed seeing just a part of Las Vegas through my eyes.

The Plaza Hotel from a corner of the Square.
The bar, which we did not get to hang out at.
And which looks much more upscale than when I was last here in 1990 on my honeymoon with ex-Pat.
Art and sun.
Something you don’t see every day.
I debated sharing this but it really had an impact on me. We explored one of the local cemeteries and these were, we deduced, the graves of COVID-19 victims who could not have a formal funeral. There were several long rows just like this off to the side of the cemetery.
Bye now.

Today’s gratitudes:

  • Sunshine
  • That MKL and Pharaoh arrive today
  • My truck
  • That I’ve won over one of the postal workers (it only took six months)
Nothing better than a flying taco. Except perhaps for The Skillet’s green chile queso.
This fellow has seen it all. At the bottom left is the list of people who’ve been 86’ed for life.
The High Plains Drifter. Muddled sage, lemon simple syrup, and gin. Tastes like a dewy morning, as advertised.
Not quite sure what’s going on here, but it was eye-catching.

The Skillet was quite a place. Quirky with lots of art and murals, super nice staff, food, and an outdoor fire pit. We spent several hours here talking, and discovered that the only place to get food in town after 9:00 is Domino’s Pizza. And that what was a warm sunny stroll from the square in the afternoon becomes a freezing squealing trot to the hotel after dark.

Today’s gratitudes:

  • That MKL is here
  • Scurryfunging before his arrival
  • Warm sunshine
  • A lovely sunrise

Not a bar fly, but a bar cat. I can’t remember this little fellow’s name, but he was certainly friendly and adventuresome. And a poser. Still battling something being wrong with me, and hoping that our sabbatical on Little Cayman will be the cure.


Great Exuma, Bahamas.

Daily gratitudes:
Cozy covers on cold nights (but missing MKL)
Understanding doctors
Good talks with good friends

There is always much to celebrate, but some days more than others.  And some days, nothing but champagne will do.

Boulder, Colorado.

Quote of the day: “There comes a time in every life when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your heart.”  —  Sarah Dessen

Daily gratitudes:
Women with long white hair
Stargazer lilies
The sounds that chickens make in the mornings
My daily dragonfly sighting
Being able to laugh at yourself when you forget how to spell a simple word you’ve known forever (I had to pick a different word.)

Quote of the day: “The body says what words cannot.”  —  Martha Graham

Daily gratitudes:
The Platte River
Dances with pigeons to “Tequila”
Nice people on the bus
My novel
My spiritual gifts

And as an aside, here are two things I learned today:

—  Deep fried kool-aid actually exists
—  If you fall off your camel, your camel will remain standing above you to protect you from being trampled by your fellow bedouins.

One of my credos is ” If you’ve learned something, the day isn’t wasted.”  Let’s see if I can find at least one new thing every day that I have learned.

I looked good today – very “Sex In The City” and very unlike me.
