City Fever

It’s been a little slow since my last post. We have a shoot tonight – I found out about it this morning, so I don’t know who the model is. All I know is where and when, plus a one-word description of the theme. More on that next time.

Work is going well. I vacuum a lot. Turns out the stock manager from one of the other stores who works with us on Saturdays has something of a crush on me. He complimented me on my jeans yesterday and said “If you weren’t already married…” Apparently he would be in the running despite our age difference (my 28 to his 45). Honey is not impressed.

Our friend Brandon is home on leave for two weeks. He’s stationed in Hawaii right now but has done two tours in Iraq. He got shot once each time he was there, both in the vest, thank God. We have a couple of free tickets to ride the rollercoaster at New York New York, some for the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay, and some to the Adventure Dome at Circus Circus, so we figured we’d show him a good time while he’s here. For those of you not familiar with Vegas, all those are big casinos on the Las Vegas Strip.

Our buddy Terrell is on our shit list right now. Today he’s hiking the Narrows in Zion National Park with his “friend” Jodi. We’re mad cuz we can’t go. Mostly I think we’re mad we haven’t been able to really go anywhere for quite some time. Pretty sure I can speak for Honey when I say my travel itch is freaking killing me. We get something like city fever (as opposed to cabin fever) and just need to jet outta here. We’re trying to set up a trip to Panguitch, UT here soon. The weather is perfect there now. Terrell went with us last time; you can read about that trip here - ok I lied, that trip was before the creation of this blog or I simply can't find it. T wants to go this trip as well, plus take Jodi, but doesn’t trust either of their cars, so it’ll be everyone in the rover. We’ll be renting a cabin at Bear Paw, because there won’t be room for everyone plus gear for four campers. Hoping to get that set up here in the next couple weeks. We’ll keep you posted.

I shall leave you with a quote from a very wise book:
“The poor long for riches, the rich long for heaven, but the wise long for a state of tranquility.” – Swami Rama
