Has this happened to you as you age? It happened to me yesterday at least once and it sucks! 😂 Full sunshine and 76F today in Las Vegas, I will take that, how about you?
I remember a different world growing up, a world that was kinder, gentler, and much more friendly. As time passes, I find myself struggling to deal with the daily onslaught of negativity we all see on the television and other sources. Like the image says, love yourself because, in the end, you are all you have.
Thes images are not the usual fare for LVPB, but there’s nothing wrong with a change of scenery, right? I’ve been grabbing these images via a screenshot from Instagram for a while, I really like what they say, even the one about the cranky old bastard! The tree crew has left, of course, I have been spiffing up the backyard.
The birdbath needed a good cleaning out so I dumped the basin and cleaned it out really nice, I hope the birds will find the bath even more attractive now that the basin is clean and no more flotsam will fall in the water from the palm tree mess. It’s just now hit 100 degrees, and the daily heating is on!
It was so odd, and something that I’ll always remember. On the way home to Las Vegas today, I was riding the flat conveyor belt that whisks you along through the different gates at DTW, or Detroit Metropolitan Airport. My back was (and still is) bothering me so I happened to lean way down on the black handrail.
I mumbled to myself that wow, my back really hurts. I didn’t see the lovely blonde woman to my right who was walking in the same direction on the regular floor. She was beautiful. Our eyes locked for what seemed like two minutes but were likely five seconds. She asked me “what?” I replied that my back is painful.
She wished me good luck with my back and walked away. Who was she? My soulmate? Or, just another random occurrence in this life because life is already too weird, right? As a three-times divorced man, I am actually not interested in dating even after six years. Yet, I am of course lonely in just this one way.
The door is open to another lady in my older days but I am very wary because of past life experiences. But, who was she? Yet another mystery in my life. Life is a circle, we may yet meet again…
I’ve always liked the music of David Bowie, I was shocked when he died in 2016. I came across this image a few days ago and thought it might make a good post. I do feel as though I’m more the way I was meant to be as I have aged.
I pass this sign occasionally and have photographed it before but my Nikon wanted another photo. This sign kinda grinds my gears since I’m three-times divorced and will remain single until the day I kick the bucket. It’s cheaper in terms of both money and one’s sanity! A girlfriend? I’ve been all by myself for five years now… It’s a peaceful life.
Anyway, I was driving to near the south end of the valley for some Ham Radio parts for my truck radio. It’s only in the low 90s today but we have a very high wind warning until 8PM this eve and man is that wind howling now!
The Stratosphere Tower is a long way away…
If you are a science fiction movie lover like I am, then you may see the relevance of this photo to the Alien movie series which was created in the 1980s. that series is still one of my favorite science fiction movies. There were no slimy monsters around though when I took this photo probably at least two years ago.
Do you remember the little girl the team found in the second movie that was called Newt? She’s still around and does autographs for her fans after these many years. I found her on Instagram and followed her but she doesn’t look like a newt these days! The character Newt was played by Carrie Henn.
