Day 24 – Las Vegas to SoCal (aka home)

Sandy & I woke up around 7:30 am and putzed around a bit before getting ourselves sort of together, then we headed down to Starbucks around 9:30 am for some breakfast. I don’t think I mentioned this before but the Rio is currently hosting the World Series of Poker so the place is full of…

I have so much to tell you (plus NPM 30)

I think I’ll start off with the last poem of NPM 30 (of 2018, haha). Fortunately, I have a few to choose from. It’s from the same prompt group as the last two, but the prompt was “Life is but a dream.” Sh-Boom when I was younger discovering music I turned to my parents’ records…
