Las Vegas, Flamingos and Blogging

I can’t believe that I haven’t blogged since February 2008. I think younger people catch on to this blogging thing much easier than we “old timers”. I shouldn’t use that expression since those who are my age don’t think of themselves that way. I don’t really either.

A friend had pointed out her daughter in law’s blog, and just being back in blogging country, I decided to get back into it. I have fun with it. And I love showing off my new designs.

I celebrated my birthday last week in Las Vegas. Great place to party. One of the nights there, I went up to the room about 11pm and decided to just go to bed. I was tired. After I took a shower, put on my jammies and climbed into bed, I noticed the clock said “9pm”. I couldn’t believe it. It’s hard to figure out the time when you’re in the casinos since there are no clocks. I was going to get up again but decided to just stay there. I fell asleep immediately.

We had gone to Terrible Herbst at Stateline for breakfast on the way in. They have the best toast. Yes, that’s what I said – toast. It’s a thick sourdough with lots of butter. Terribly unhealthy but for a once in a while treat – it’s okay. So, we all decided to leave the Rio early and go have more toast and play the slots at Stateline and then go home.

And if you think the toast was unhealthy – what till you read what we had at Peggy Sue’s Diner on historic Rt. 66 in Yermo. Chiquita Banana Splits. They were huge and we wished we would have shared instead of having one each. If you’re ever over that way – be sure to stop at Peggy Sue’s. It’s a fun, crazy 50’s style restaurant with lots of memorable which would take weeks to see it all.

And now home, I’m back to designing and having fun. I haven’t designed anything new in a while so I was really pleased to get busy again. I’ll go back through and update some of my links too. It’s sort of like I’ve let the yard go but it’s my websites, etc . that I’ve let get messy. I wanted to design a gift for a friend and ‘got in the mood’ again. I also created this Flamingo design for myself. I wanted a new coffee mug so came up with this one (pictured). I also made a matching ceramic tile for it. It is available if you like it too – just click here.
