Dana and I just got back from Vega$ after a nice 3 day weekend spent celebrating our friend, Kylee’s birthday. Had a great time, ate some phenomenal food, had a few cocktails, and after reading a bunch of reviews on sites like www.boomtownbingo.com/cheeky-bingo-review/, we did a little gambling. Unfortunately neither Dana or I hit it big, so it’s back to the grind for another week!
The weather was strange in Vegas this time. Hot on Saturday, overcast, and raining a bit on Sunday. Of course, it had to rain on Sunday, that was the day we had designated for hanging out at the pool at the Paris Hotel. Oh well, it was still a good time!
Oh yeah, on the way back, we narrowly avoided being hit in the face with a tire, errr, actually a whole wheel, as the Ford Excursion in front of us on the drive home lost it’s wheel, and it bounced in and out of the lane a few times, before flying over the divider. It was pretty crazy! There were sparks flying from the brake rotor scraping along the ground, and pieces of the axle cap flying towards our car. If it weren’t for Dana’s ninja like reflexes, we woulda been smashed up pretty good!
So, fo now, it’s back to the daily routine. Going to try and get some running in this week, along with a bike ride this weekend, in between hanging out at our friend’s one year old’s birthday party on Saturday. I think I’ve decided to ride in this year’s MS-150 Bike Ride from Irvine down to San Diego. I just need to sign up, and start raising the $450. Be on the lookout for more info on this, and possibly a way to own one of our fine art pics, and help out a great charity at the same time! 🙂
Ok… now onto the reason all 4 of you show up every week… There is only 4 of you right? If you swing by, and see something that jumps out at ya, feel free to leave a comment. We won’t bite. Really! So here are this weeks pics. Have a few from Vegas, and a couple from beautiful, scenic, metropolitan, Baker, CA. The gateway to Death Valley, and home to the world’s tallest thermometer!
