Not to brag, especially to those of you in frigid climates, but we've been having some spectacular weather here in Las Vegas and the 10-day forecast is bright sunshine and temperatures in the 60s everyday. I'll take it. Earlier this week my grandson (Jesus H, I still stop in my tracks when I write "my grandson") posted on my Facebook wall that it was 11 below zero that morning when he waited for the school bus.
I can't stand (well, just about everything, but this time I'm thinking of) cold weather. It's such a goddamn struggle. So. do. not. miss. that. shit.
Brrr.... I'm thinking of you all in those cold climates. For some reason I seem to have a LOT of readers in the Minneapolis-St.Paul area. I was shocked the other day when I saw on my blog stats that I have a larger percentage of readers from Minnesota than Nevada. I feel for my Canadian readers, too, up there in friggin' Regina, Saskatchewan, and Sarnia, Ontario, and Edmonton, Alberta. Thank you for reading. Thank you ALL--wherever you are--for checking in here. I mean it.
Anyway, here are a couple of pics from last weekend out at Red Rock Canyon, a beautiful area on the west side of town that's less than a half-hour from the Strip. Seriously, if you've been coming to Las Vegas for a while and have never left the Strip, rent a car and take a ride out there. It's a whole different world.
This weekend I'm heading to someplace even more beautiful. Yep, another road trip. You know me, I've got that old traveling fever.
But don't get me wrong--winter scenes are certainly beautiful, too. Just take a look at these two.
Hazel: still the most serious baby ever.
