THE CABIN

WE RETURNED TO THE MOUNTAIN AND OUR CABIN LAST SATURDAY.  WE KNOW WE'RE IN FOR SOME WINTER WEATHER, BUT DECIDED THE CABIN WAS A BETTER PLACE TO BE.



AFTER TWO 7AM TRIPS TO WALMART WE HAVE THE FREEZER AND CUPBOARDS ADEQUATELY STOCKED INCLUDING TOILET PAPER AND BLEACH.



I EVEN HAD THE GRILL FIRED UP LAST NIGHT FOR BURGERS.


WE ARE BOTH FINE AND HUNKERED DOWN.

WORST TRIP EVER !!!

MIKEY'S ANNUAL VISIT TO NEVADA IS ALL ABOUT HIS BIRTHDAY, MARCH MADNESS, AND ST. PAT'S DAY.



THIS YEAR WAS THE WORST TRIP EVER !!!

NOT ONLY THE "BEER-BUG" SLOWLY SHUTTING DOWN VEGAS, BUT THE WEATHER WENT TO HELL, WITH COLD, RAIN, AND CLOUDS.  FIRST IT WAS EVERY OTHER SLOT MACHINE AND ONLY THREE CUSTOMERS PER TABLE GAME, THEN THEY TOOK AWAY EVERY OTHER BAR STOOL. FINALLY AT 5 PM ON ST. PATS DAY THE GOVERNOR ORDERED ALL THE CASINOS CLOSED AT MIDNIGHT.

MIKEY LUCKED OUT AND CHANGED HIS FLIGHT HOME TO IOWA TO WEDNESDAY MORNING INSTEAD OF FRIDAY AFTERNOON, AND THE FOUR QUEENS KICKED US ALL OUT OF THE HOTEL ON WEDNESDAY MORNING.

HERE IS THE UPDATE ON THE NEW CASINO/HOTEL DOWNTOWN VEGAS.



MARY AND I ARE PACKING UP AT WINTER CAMP AND WAITING FOR A SNOW STORM TO CLEAR FLAGSTAFF AND HEADED TO "THE MOUNTAIN" AND OUR CABIN ON SATURDAY TO HUNKER DOWN.

  STAY HOME AND WASH YOUR HANDS !

SPRING

IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR.



MIKEY MAKES HIS ANNUAL PILGRIMAGE TO VEGAS FOR HIS BIRTHDAY AND MARCH MADNESS BASKETBALL.

THE "BEER-BUG" AND WEATHER ARE MAKING THIS THE WORST TRIP IN HIS TEN YEARS OF VISITS.  MAYBE HE WILL GO HOME WITH MONEY SAVED ON BASKETBALL BETS?

WE'VE DONE THE WEEK-END IN LAUGHLIN AND ARE HEADED TO LAS VEGAS TODAY FOR THE WEEK. 

WISH US GOOD LUCK AND GO WASH YOUR HANDS, YES AGAIN.

SPRING BREAK

TODAY WE WERE OFF TO LAKE HAVASU IN SEARCH OF SPRING BREAKERS. YOU KNOW, THOSE BIKINI CLAD COLLEGE CO-EDS CELEBRATING THE RIGHTS OF SPRING.  COME ON, YOU REMEMBER THOSE "CALIFORNIA GIRLS" WE USED TO SING ABOUT.



AND WHAT DID I FIND................










   MY FAVORITE "GRANDMA-JACK" !!!

SHEN YUN

FOR YEARS MARY HAS BEEN WATCHING THE COMMERCIALS ON TV EVERY WINTER FOR THE TRAVELLING CHINESE DANCE AND MUSICAL SHOW SHEN YUN. 

"SOMEDAY, I WANT TO SEE THAT SHOW". THIS WAS THE YEAR AS WE SCORED MATINEE SHOW TICKETS AT THE SMITH CENTER FOR THE PREFORMING ARTS IN DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS.

RECORDING AND PHOTOGRAPHY STRICTLY FORBIDDEN, SO SORRY, NO PICTURES.  THE SMITH CENTER WAS EQUALLY IMPRESSIVE.



THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN FROM THE BALCONY OF THE SMITH CENTER AND YOU CAN SEE THE DOWNTOWN CASINOS IN THE BACKGROUND.

TWO NIGHTS ON FREMONT STREET, BUT YOU KNOW, "WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS STAYS IN VEGAS".  ACTUALLY IF YOU'VE BEEN PAYING ATTENTION TO THE ADVERTISING, THE CURRENT PHRASE IS. "WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS ONLY HAPPENS IN VEGAS".

THE UPGRADED LIGHT SHOW IS AMAZING. IT IS SO BRIGHT AND VIVID THEY CAN USE IT IN THE DAY TIME.
