Fishing With Gracie

Gracie is amazing, she sees the fish and follows them!

Don't Feed The Fish

This is not about feeding the actual fish food...it about feeding the fish into the blender thing that chops them to pieces and kills them.

It's 94 Degrees

It's 94 degrees, the launch ramp is about a mile away and this yahoo is already dressed in his FULL wetsuit while he's filling his jet skis with gas. Who are these people? Why are people so stupid and WHY do they position themselves in such a way that it inhibits me getting a GREAT photo of their stupidity?

Hoover Dam

I was super excited to cross the new bridge at the Hoover Dam. I watched it being built and thought it looked amazing...lets just say I was a little disappointed with the view from the bridge.

Who Does This?

Where are the badge carrying, wanna be cops or firemen and couldn't so now they're park rangers when you need them? These retards had 2 people AND 2 dogs (IN BRIGHT GREEN LIVE VESTS) on this one jet ski. Are they stupid, I'm just pissed I didn't get a better picture.

Memorial Day Weekend

We went out on the lake and it was a two flag day!!

Switch Lanes

I always end up behind "THIS GUY". If I packed all this stuff into a trailer and secured it (Duane's word not mine) with only a rope I wouldn't make it out of the driveway!

Vet Visit

Gracie needed to get some shots so off to the Vet we went. I was happy to be taking her to her old vet back in Vegas. (The one that dealt with her after she:
1. ate the dog killing food from China
2. she got hit by truck and almost had to have her leg amputated
3. she got her face scratched by a cat
4. she ripped her toenails off
5. she she got an infection inside her belly where the pound fixed her (with metal wire instead of stitches)
...the list goes on. When the vet came in he informed us that we also need to schedule a senior wellness exam because she's seven! I was a little sad thinking about Gracie being 7 and getting older and dieing soon...he took her into the back to administer her shots and weigh her. He came back and asked if her paperwork was correct and that she didn't need a senior wellness exam she was the healthiest 7 he'd seen! Yippee GRACIE!!!

Gotta Be Boredom

Gracie is an amazing dog. She is obedient, protective and loving. She doesn't pee or poop in the house, or chew on things. Boredom is her downfall, her old cure was hopping the fence and just watching the world go by. She has now taken to ripping up, chewing up and throwing up linoleum. So far she has only thrown up one piece. We have a vet appointment scheduled for 7:30 am on Monday. This should be fun. Hello, dog crate!

Never A Good Sign

When you turn onto your street and see ambulances and lights you worry...I did. Not to worry this was just some retard running a stop sign and skidding into the ditch in front of my house...poor Gracie had no idea what was going on, and was barking intensely inside. A little cheese and salami calmed her right down.

He's Gay

Bar-Be-Queing is manly...but having a briefcase full of bar-be-que tools, not so much.

Happy Birthday To Me

Look what Duane got me for my birthday!!! Last year it was a popcorn machine, this year nacho cheese sauce. He does listen!!!

My Dream Job

My dream job is to own and drive an ice cream truck. I have a TON of simply wonderful marketing ideas. There is no way this business could fail...a girl can hope can't she?

When I moved from Vegas to Reno, I was prepared. I came from my own home, I came with tools... Well, when I moved back to Vegas I left my tools in Reno. So when I needed to hammer something, off I went to the store...the DOLLAR store. Obviously this hammer didn't hold up too well. Lesson learned hammer more gently.

My Laundry Room

I LOVE my laundry room. You can spill all you want, hang items to dry easily, and be a nosy neighbor all at the same time! Just be careful not to drop anything...you'll have to rewash it!

Don't Follow To Closely

Driving through Fallon on my way to Vegas I saw this. I'm not sure the DUCT tape is going to hold this shut for much longer...

We Found A Thai Restaurant

There is an amazing Thai restaurant down the street from our house in Vegas. The food is GREAT, the musicians are wonderful and the atmosphere is cool. The servers wear beautiful costumes that are real elegant and fancy...this particular server must have thought flat meant big, black, bulky tennis shoes!

Southwest Anyone?

It's gonna be a little hard to fly without the propeller, over look the fact that the motor is also missing! Looks like we'll be flying the friendly skies with Southwest this time!

Walk A Little Straighter

The ground was not hot enough to warrant putting this poor dog in boots! Poor thing could barely walk straight. He was limping through Town Square.

Happy Cinco De Mayo

Let's just say I out did myself tonight!!! (That is not necessarily a good thing.) I got a wild hair up my butt and went to the gym to swim. I grew up swimming, but regrettably, or not, have not swum in 6 years. Today was the day I decided to change that. WHY???? 38 minutes, and 1500 yards later I pulled my body out of the pool (at least I didn't have to climb out the old people ladder) grabbed my towel and walked out through 24 hour fitness dripping wet...DONE, but I'll be back, hopefully tomorrow. As I was driving I almost crashed my car into a brick wall for 2 reasons
1) There was a 85 year old man standing on the street corner twirling a sign that said
No Persciption
2) I didn't have my camera!
Next I fixed the washing machine, got though one load of just water and then it broke again...can't wait for Duane to get here on Sunday!
DINNER!!!! I am seriously an AMAZING cook. NOT!! My not cooked through pasta, cold black beans, over cooked chicken, frozen spinach, runny, canned, stewed tomatoes, and gooey cheese ended up in the garbage. Sometimes I wonder why I even try to stray from the usual popcorn and gummy bears!
Here's to tomorrow being just as good!

Where's the Sunscreen?

Oh Shit!!! I did this time evolved picture thing online, where you take a photo and it ages you based on your current look. I really need to start wearing sunscreen, washing my makeup off at night, wearing a hat, stop drinking...The cool thing is it looks like as i age my eyes will turn from brown to blue!

Should I Pack?

What does this mean? Do I need to pack? Is the whole world ending? Is this true? The three motor homes in this caravan have me a little worried, especially since all the drivers have on orange hats and walkie talkies...walkie talkies are official, they mean business. How do we stop this from happening?

Longest 468 Miles Ever

Vegas to Reno.

Garbage Day

Easter Sunday was a beautiful, sunny day in Vegas so we decided to go fishing. We pulled up to beach to relax for a while and saw this...I guess they thought it was garbage day!


My cousin got married in Newport Coast! I joined my parents for the celebration. Here are a few photos of parents with their favorite child!

Contact Cement

DUMBASS!! GRACIE!!! Stupid dog walked over to Duane while he was working on the boat, saw a puddle of wet stuff, stepped in it, sniffed her foot, ran through the weeds, thistles and goat heads, realized (us not her) that she stepped in spilt contact cement, Duane took the acetone to her paws...I left for work!


Duane has been working on the new house every time he comes down to Vegas. This time he tackled the cabinets and he did an amazing job (the darker ones are the finished ones.)
