The geek in me...
just can't help it. We had a great week in Vegas last week. I wanted out of the snowy, dark, cold hell that is winter in New England so I cooked up a plan. I had a couple of frequent flier tickets, and no b-day ideas for the folks. Add the guilt and tears from my Mom for not coming home for the holidays and vwa-la. I knew the momma had timeshare to use or lose so I proposed that I would cover the airfare, we could use her timeshare and meet in Vegas. I worked on two different computers to coordinate a frequent flier ticket with a purchased ticket for them on United, then for Art and myself on Delta. Mom reserved the rooms, and off we went.
I love Vegas. Sure the drinking, gambling, all hours partying. Uh, maybe not with my Mom the self-professed teetotaller (sp?) but I love to watch the cranes, the massive construction projects, and big toys!
Score this time.
At the end of the road we were on (Harmon) and the strip road (Las Vegas Blvd.) they had at least twenty cranes and three different projects underway!
I told Art we should have brought lawn chairs. I could just sit, sip my beverage, and watch all day!
