Jeff is having surgery tomorrow... torn Rotator Cuff and lots of other torn stuff in that area, Dr. says "It's a real mess"... from an injury at work. Left arm this time, he already had surgery on the right one a few years ago. Yes, we've been through this before, but this is worse than last time... just keep the pain pills going and hopefully we will all survive the recovery period. We're not looking forward to it.

This is a Zentangle Inspired Artwork note card I did yesterday. I'm not sure if I am done with the tree or not. I like the contrast, but I'm just not sure. What do you think? should I add some detail to some of the bulbs on the tree or leave it alone?

This is a 9x12 inch Zentangle Inspired Christmas Themed Artwork I did. I will do a bunch of these to sell next year. I'm also doing some Greeting Cards. Here is the first one...

I've wanted to go to Las Vegas for quite some time, my friend Jan and her husband Bill talked us into going to celebrate my 50th birthday. We were there for 3 nights... long enough to lose all the money we brought with us to the casinos... but we had a great time!
Flying above the clouds...
I thought it was really interesting that some of the fields are planted in circles.
First sight of the mountains...
That is one big sandbox...
It's amazing, when you stop and think about it, that you can get on a plane
in South Bend Indiana, and 3 hours later you are in Sin City!
Liberace's car... no doubt about it!
We talked Jeff into having his photo taken with these girls dressed as showgirls on the strip,
I don't know if they really are, or if they just dress up to earn money.
$10 for the photo, EVERYTHING IS EXPENSIVE in Las Vegas!
These photos were taken at the conservatory in the Bellagio.
I bet the Christmas display would be grand to see,
the fall display was marvelous! Mums were everywhere!
These are made of blown glass and hang at the entrance to the conservatory.
This was actually inside the building... the sky is painted.
We had dinner at this burger joint the first evening.
I didn't get to see the "Welcome to Las Vegas" Sign,
but we did see other famous signs like this Circus Circus.
My Dad and Sharon gave us our accommodations for the trip,
we stayed at the Marriot Grand Chateau
(the tall building to the right of the Harley Davidson Cafe.)
Jan and I teased our men that this was the show we wanted to go see
while we were in Las Vegas. Every day we would see this sign on the
way to the Las Vegas Strip... Maybe next time! ;)
We did go to see Zarkana.
It was a wonderfully weird show! Very entertaining...
Comedy, dance, acrobatics, art, it was amazing!
It's official now... I am 50 years old, and one more of my bucket list items has been checked off.
