High Rollin' Christmas

Hi everyone,

Hope everyone had a joyous Christmas and are gearing up for a funfilled New Years. Herman and I hit Vegas yesterday and hit the town running, Planet Hollywood, Paris, Vanisian, and Wynns the first night. Today, Christmas, we drove over the Hover Dam. It was a lovely drive in the desert and the dam is as awesome as ever. More so because they are building a bridge across the gorge bellow the dam. It's pretty scary how high it is. I guess they don't want terrorist diving over the dam. Anyway, I'll leave you with some pictures from the town that never sleeps. Just click on the pictures to expand them.

Happy Holidays

Hi everybody.

I’m posting the first of what I hope becomes an ongoing family history in words and pictures that everyone contributes to. If we all post something once per week, it will allow us to keep tabs with everything going on within our family. I’m hoping to see lots of pictures of Leeann and her boys, and, of course, tons of Grace. And Leeann, can you post some pictures of your house for those of us who have never seen it? If you come across old family photos, I would love seeing them posted as well. This is also a place I can post my travel pics when Herman and I are on the road.

I’ll send out posting instructions and passwords by email, so get your pictures ready.

We celebrated Vera's birthday a little early this year. I'm assuming that was so that Herman and I could attend, as we’ll be on our way to Las Vegas on the 21st. Thanks Gail, Sharon, and Mom for doing that. We had a wonderful time: dinner was scrumptious and it was great to see Michael and Sharon’s new digs.

Also wanted to include a heartfelt note of thanks to Gail for all the time and effort that went into creating the family DVD show. That is the most thoughtful gift I’ve received in many years. I will cherish it. Many, many thanks.

I’ll post pictures of Herman and I and Don and Jeff in Las Vegas, so you all can see how crazy that place gets over the holidays. Merry Christmas to all, and have a happy and safe and prosperous new year.

Oh, and here's mom on her honeymoon and dad on his ass.
