If a birthday falls in Las Vegas does anyone notice?

21 Aug

54.  Wow, time marches on and no man can slow it down.  You’ve gotta live life to the fullest because there’s no guarantees, right?  Heck, you could be taken out by a drone tomorrow!  If the word Full figures prominently in your life, you need to come to Vegas.  Everything here is big, bright, and boisterous.  They have the best entertainers, the best shows, the best food and it’s all so easy.  One of the funnest things that’s happened to JoJami and I recently is her sister and brother in law, Janeen and Michael moved to Las Vegas.  I’ve been the lucky recipient of a week-long birthday blowout that’s left me slightly dazed but with a grin on my face to be sure!  And when you can get your day started with a little backyard yoga what’s not to like?

securedownload-1A view like that in California would set you back a few million (and then just imagine the property taxes!).  No wonder so many folks are hightailing it out of CA to the low tax state of Nevada.  But I digress into political banter which is just an exercise in frustration these days.  Back to the good stuff:  here’s the great community pool we enjoy each afternoon.
