To Las Vegas and Back To Normal

The two of you who have been clamoring to know, I just want to tell you that while I've been away to Las Vegas, I've been away from lots of things, but not away from the good guys.  Just from my computer -- except for the one day when we hauled my computer out of mothballs at Denny's to renew some books for Julia from the the Salt Lake County Library System.  Those folks are somewhat more precise than she is when it comes to remembering when books come due which is somewhat surprising since they have quite a few more around than she does.  My intentions were good to keep Sisal Soup going but things did fall apart along the way.  I remember being quite responsible during my trip to Branson, but since no one cared during that trip, my interest during this one took quite a beating as a result.

What I mean by that was, I was with my darling sons, Ben, Brad, my beautiful Julia, my darlings Sophia and Ali and my Eternal Companion, Carl for the first time in three years and it was wonderful.      

I could have used another couple of dozen more of you, too, but that's for another day.

A favorite Vegas moment:  a huge fat guy in a wig and bikini who accused Carl on the busy Strip of checking him out for too long.  Another favorite: the astonished look on Ali's face when she went to push the street crossing button and encountered a crazy vagrant instead.  Another:  When Ben opted to stay home and watch Sponge Bob with a sick Ali while the rest of us went to visit the Strip.  

Some celeb sightings:  Pete Rose and Jerry Lewis.

The picture above is of Sophia and Ben on our last day there.  It is a little bitter/sweet because as you might have guessed, they are in love.

Glad you had fun in wonderful Vegas!! :) It was also probably nice to get out of the cold for a few days, wasn't it great here last weekend?!?! That is one of many reasons I love Vegas!
