Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home...

Vegas was fabulous but it is sooooo good to be home. I played with MY dog last night and slept in MY bed.

ZUMANITY - If you go to Vegas you must go see this show at New York New York. The women are beautiful, the men stunning and the show itself, amazing! Favorite parts: The champagne glass, the cage match (one of the performers for the cage match was standing at the top of the stairs when we walked in and I could have drowned in his eyes), the school girl with a twist and Antonio. All together a very exciting, funny and sensual show.

The roller coasters - So much fun. I'm not always a thrill ride kind of girl but had an absolute blast on the roller coasters.

The Krispy Kreme donuts my partner in crime thought to get for breakfast. Yum, yum, yum and so much better with coffee in bed.

Vegas itself. I haven't been there in several years and I don't feel like I have to go back again for a long time. It's a big city and as such it is often times dirty and crowded and I'm not a huge fan of the street hawkers trying to get you into their time share or the pornography trading cards that get passed out, dropped and on display EVERYWHERE. I struck out on my own one night to get some photos and very quickly developed a "don't mess with me" walk - just straight ahead, on a mission, don't want your trading cards and I really don't want your timeshare. However, the trip was great, a lot of fun was had, the weather was beautiful and I'm glad we went.

Oh but it's good to be home to my mountains and fresh air and even the frosting of snow on the ground this morning.

Happy Thanksgiving kiddies!

Bright lights, big city, gone to my baby's head...

EEEEEEEE.....Vegas baby!
In 5 days we leave for Vegas for a long weekend of fun, frolicking, roller coasters, as many Elvi as we can find and a bunch more stuff that isn't good for us.

I'm so excited!

A lesson learned

I took a break between trips to Helena for family and funeral to catch my breath.

A friend came over to listen and console and during my rambling it occurred to me that the ones who love a person most should get to have some say before a sudden death. No one consulted my sister or his children or our family before he died that morning. One minute he was alive and just that quickly he was gone and there was no taking it back.

As I drove back and forth between Kalispell and Helena I remember thinking how sudden death can be and how final it surely is - at least for those left behind. It doesn't quite seem fair that a life that was valued can be gone without those of us who loved him most having some input.

This is cliche and everyone expresses it after a death but it really is true - if you care for someone, love someone, value someone SAY IT! Don't wait, don't think about it too much, don't put it off for even a minute because that minute may be all you have left someday.

I have never heard anyone say that they wish they'd said "I love you" less.

He: Don't take this the wrong way but you're the reason I don't update my blog as much.

Me: What do you mean?

He: Well, I tell you all my stories so now I don't have to blog about them.

Me: But the rest of the world doesn't get to read about your stories and adventures.

He: Yeah, but once I've told them its out of my system.

Me: Well, don't take this wrong but you're the reason I don't update my blog as much either. I tell you all my stories.

She: The way he feeds me I'm getting fat

Me: You are not, you're beautiful, right C___?

He: She's perfect

Me: It's statistically proven that most men prefer women who are a little juicy. They like curves and some softness and not all hard angles and rib bones

He: I have an opinion about that

Me: Share with us

He: Any man who is a real man doesn't want someone with the body of a 12 year old boy

Me: Hehe

A death in the family...

can bring out the best in people. Friends who drive you home from work. Friends who come over to help you pack and to remember your toothbrush and to not pack 40 t-shirts and one pair of pants. Friends who make you eat something before you get on the road. Who come over just to give you a hug or an encouraging word. Friends who want to make sure you drive and arrive safe.

Thank you!
