Happy Birthday to me!

Foley and I are just back from a fabulous trip to Vegas, primarily to attend The Eagles concert held on Saturday, November 5th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.  The concert was wonderful - the band sounds so wonderful live.  Loved "Life's Been Good" by Joe Walsh, the epic "Hotel California" and the wonderful last song "Desperado" by Don Henley.

busyizzi and family

My scrapbooking friend, Charlyn, aka busyizzi, her dh and their 3 ds came for a visit.  They live south of Seattle and wanted to visit Canada, since they all had passports.  Her ds were excited to visit a "foreign" land.  I think that they were a little disappointed that Vancouver didn't seem so different from cities in the States.  About the only thing different, was the currency.  It was unfortunate that it rained quite heavily this morning and we quickly were  soaked.  Our plan to go across the Capilano Suspension Bridge was replaced by a visit to the Vancouver Museum where we stayed dry!  When we emerged from the museum, we were greeted by brighter skies and NO RAIN!  The boys took off their shoes and enjoyed playing on the beach.  Our day ended with a dinner at White Spot - even foley joined us.  Perfect ...

A little pain ...

Thanks to Foley, I looked for a place to get my flu shot, courtesy of my employer.  There is a clinic at my workplace next week.  Unfortunately, I'll be out of town then.  My left deltoid is a little sore (site of injection).

RIP Dan Wheldon

As a race fan, it breaks my heart to hear of Dan Wheldon's passing after a horrific crash at LVMS today.  He was so young and leaves a wife and two young children behind.  While I understand that crashes are a part of racing - dying as a result of an accident, shouldn't be.

RIP Dan Wheldon, Indy500 champ.

Moving into the Digital Age

Thanks to peer pressure, it's time to move to the digital age and get a blog.  Don't really think that I have anything worth sharing - but eh, who knows until you try, right?
