Wow - I Love/Hate this season. I love xmas shopping but hate wrapping presents. I love eating out all freaking month (Vegas has the best restaurants) but I hate cooking xmas dinner all day. I love playing board games but hate losing and when you've got four really smart kids...The odds are NOT forever in my favor.
Tomorrow we celebrate my son's birthday, we're headed for the "Sugar Factory" on the strip. We walk the Vegas Strip ever xmas season and "tourist watch"....I love it when you guys pay the light bill; I would hate for the boulevard to be dark. Bellagio Hotel is one of my favorite places during the holidays & the Bellagio fountains are assume not to mention their Conservatory. Nothing better than spending an hour in the cold with hot chocolate and watching the fountain show.
Sorry, I'm way behind on email communicates..... Writing is fun but doesn't compare to snuggling (meet me at the fountains). I've made some good friends on this site but unfortunately we don't live close enough to meet. When my last little birdie leaves the nest, it will be my turn to fly away........... look out world, I'll be coming soon............

Happy new years!!!!
I took a friend to a show at the Cosmopolitan last night. It was very up close and personal. The first act was the "balancing a feather on sticks act" see link below................
I've seen it on you tube before but to see it live in person was assume. They also have a restaurant with the same performers doing their acts in front of you. I have just now found my favorite restaurant in the whole world. It's called " Rose. Rabbit. Lie"
If you are ever in Vegas, it is a 'must' see.
Best of luck to all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Chinese new years!!!!
I took the kids to see the show 'Panda' at the Palazzo Hotel. A nice clean, highly entertaining production. Half the shows in Vegas are adult only, so it's really nice to find one that you can take the family to see.
The kids want to hike 'The Pacific Crest Trail' for a month this summer. We were originally going to start in San Diego and hike north but sense we are only doing a month of the trail, we decided to start at/in Yosemite Park and head north from there and see how far we can get. Maybe we will make it an annual family thing and do the whole trail (almost 3,000 miles). I told the kids if I die on the trail to just go ahead and bury me there. I'll at least get some visitors every now and then. We have been doing 'mini' hikes on the weekend to get into shape & Mt. Charleston is a great training ground.
Wish us luck and of course safety!!!
I'm retired military from a long line of military men. A soldier doesn't fight because he hates the enemy in front of him, he fights because he loves what he left behind. I have 4 beautiful amazing kids that I've raised by myself for the past 11 years. My oldest daughter set the standards for her siblings by being the first one in our family to attend an Ivy League University. She currently lives and works in Korea. Being an Army brat, she's got the traveling bug in her. My 2nd oldest (son) is now attending Princeton University (#1 University in the country if not the world). My 3rd oldest just graduated from high school and the baby of the family is over 6 ft tall at 15 years old. He's training to attend the Naval Academy at Annapolis hoping for a commission in the Marine Corp. So all my babies are growing up and giving me some free time (for a change). So here I am looking for someone special to spend it with.
The sexiest thing about a woman is = How intelligent she is, Her smile & does she smile with her eyes or give that plastic model smile, Femininity - God made us different for a reason - if you love being a female - I'll love you for being it, Romantic - love the romance!
