I am home!

Hi All, I got home 9PM on Monday, after almost 4 days of NO SLEEP!  It has been along time since I have had such concentrated FUN.  We talked and talked and talked, although we manage to keep in touch most of the time, we have not seen each other in about 8 years.  We have been friends for 25 years.  We enriched the wine industry of California, we saw the most wonderful show "Menopause" by Jeanie Linders, if you ever get the chance to see this, no matter what your age, do not pass up the opportunity.  We hit the stamp stores, we cooked, we ate out. I met a slew of her wonderful new friends and was pampered in her beautiful new home.  We pulled a couple of nickle slots but I was just not concentrating so no wins this trip.  We did the cruise of the strip, boy did that blow someone away that had not cruised the strip since the 1970's, like being a different town it was.  The card is just a smidgen of the thank yous I hold in my heart, but it was a fun one because it corporates many symbols of our trip.  The base of the background was colored with Bitters, yep the kind you use in a mixed drink, because she introduced it to me for my Perrier, which I drink a lot of.  The hearts for my heartful thanks, the clock because there were none in Las Vegas.  The peacock blue for a funny funny thing that happened on our drive from LasVegas to Long Beach on Monday.  Beading string attaches the clock to the tag, represents Jeanie Linders, a wonderful woman who is committed to empowering woman all over the world, yeah! Jeanie.  So this is my thumbnail of LasVegas, I hope that everyone is well, safe and happy, today and tomorrow.  Hugs

Absolutely gorgeous, Sandi!!! LOOVE it and I'm sure she did too! I got to go see Menopause with my two lifelong friends when we went to celebrate our 50th in Vegas together. We laughed so hard and we LOVED it! So I know exactly what you're talking about. Glad to see you had a wonderful time!
hugs, Sharon
