Hi all, I hope your Christmas preparations are progressing nicely! I’ve been away for a few days, didn’t have much opportunity to get online here. My family Christmas has been a beautiful thing this year, the usual family members were all there, everyone is well and happy. A niece will marry next year and my daughter graduates college soon!
My wonderful father purchased a car for my son, a specific car he’s wanted for a good while now. My son was simply blown away! I would be too! After the fact, I pulled dad aside and thanked him profusely, there is unfortunately no way I could have afforded to purchase a car for him but that’s another story.
Further, my son and I as well as sister and I mended some old hurts. It was a beautiful time and a beautiful thing to be among those of my kind. I speak of family of course but of we being from such a different place than here in Las Vegas. I see these two places as so very radically different, they may as well be on different planets.
The environment, the land, the people. Michiganders are much more friendly, sorry Las Vegas but it is what it is. The attitude of the people is very different. That said, I will stay on. The old saying states you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. That applies to Las Vegas. The worst thing for me in this city is the bloody traffic. Grrr.
There are so many great things about Las Vegas, they far outweigh the negatives. I’ve decided to make the journey home every four months or so in the coming year, thereby keeping in much better contact with family and wonderful old friends of thirty-plus years. A phone call or text just isn’t the same.
These photos were snapped with the iPhone. Call me a chickenshit or whatever makes your thingy(s) jiggle but I really wasn’t feeling good about taking my new camera with me on this trip. I wish I did, the iPhone can’t get close in image quality. I did my best to clean them up, I hope you like them.
