Believe it or not, our main purpose for going to Las Vegas wasn’t to go shopping at Costco and Trader Joe’s. Really.
I’ve got to say, Chuck looked and sounded great. It’s pretty amazing after everything he’s been through. We’d heard that his concerts tended to be definitely “on” or “off”. This one was “on”. In fact, one of the casino employees told us that he’d seen Chuck six times, and this performance was definitely the best. He looked very relaxed and happy, and he had a lot of friends and relatives at the performance. His son filled in on bass on a few songs, and one of his daughters joined in for the encore (“Joy to the World”, of course). He’s one heck of a success story in turning one’s life around.
We also planned on doing some swimming at my brother-in-law’s. Sadly, Las Vegas had their June weather in May, and now they’re having their May weather. It was sunny, but too cold to swim. We did take one short dip in the pool on Sunday when the water temp finally got up to 80 (about the same as the air temp), but it was definitely chilly.
We still had fun around the pool, though. My BIL’s two Wire Fox Terriers are a riot. They’re one and two years old. Neither of them likes to go into the pool, but they both love to drink out of it. The older one was having a drink, and the younger one kept coming up behind him and trying to push him in (unsuccessfully). We were totally cracking up. After about 5 times, it occurred to me to get my camera, but by then it was too late – the fun was over. I did snap this photo of the “lap dogs”. Fortunately, they’re not as large as Gadabout Knitter’s dogs.
Oh, and yes, I have another FO.
Here’s a sneak peek:
