Captain’s Log 4,510
Lunacy and a sense of fun run in my family. Seriously! Big Sister Mia and her pals all went to Vegas last week for a shopping spree. They got to cash in their casino points for stuff. Some of it is good stuff too! Like…jewelry, gift cards, knives….and toaster ovens. Mia got herself a toaster oven last year. I dropped an enormous hint about wanting a toaster oven too, so we shall see. Not that we cannot go out and buy our own damn toaster ovens. It’s the idea of getting them for FREE! And trust me, this stuff is not free. Casino points are based on the actual coinage put into the bandits over the last year. Mia and her friends have definitely earned these points.
Mary, Mia, and Rhonda – the Three Amigas
Mia did tell me that she scored free tickets to see Rod Stewart when we are there in February. Since I look like Rod Stewart every morning when I get up, this concert has deep meaning for me. And…..his piano player (at least his piano player a few years ago) is the son of one of my college professors. Little Henry Hey. He was born right before I started college. Little Henry.
Little Henry – who made it big
Rod Stewart – who made it bigger. Look at how he’s hanging on to that microphone!
It’s a day for early meetings. And then more grantwriting. The only saving grace is that I can dress casually today because I don’t have to impress anyone. Tomorrow is another day, but I will certainly take advantage of this opportunity to be totally comfortable. I do SO look forward to the days when I can wear sleep pants and a t-shirt if I want to.
So off I go to make plans and do stuff. Daylight is burning!
