Here I am in Vegas again working like a dog to earn a pitence, when am I going to get to enjoy retirement, I guess when I win Powerball. Well I did have a couple days to ride my bike up and over the summit at Red Rock Canyon. Second day I made it t...o the top without stopping. Of course my heart was trying to leap out of my body, screaming crazy ole fool you're to old and too fat. Ah, what a way to go.

Not quite right pool team pool party...

My teamates have been asking for several years for Ms. Vickie and me to host a pool as in swimming party for our pool team as in billiards. Thus Saturday we finally hosted a party.

Can't have a party without cake
