So this past MLK weekend was amazing. I was out in Vegas for the American Society of Magicians convention. It is an annual convention but this was one of the years that it was close enough for me to attend. The previous 5 years, the convention was held on the east coast, so I never bothered to attend because I don’t have the vacation time and money to go out east to some place like louisville. (Rather spend that time with my wife going somewhere). Since it was in las Vegas, it is a a fairly cheap and short flight . This was a wonderful trip packed full of fun and exciting things.
To Celebrate Sherri’s Birthday Month, I took her to what i thought would be one of her favorite places. I found a place that had very european style houses, with a lot of Christmas decorations around everywhere. Which meant, i would take her to Solvang! It is actually a really long drive, because the traffic down there is super bad on a friday night.
I was only able to book this place called Vacations-Inn. It was a pretty good place, and the nice part is that because it is really close to downtown, we could just walk down there. Sherri told me that by just driving around the place at night (we arrived at 10pm) she knew that this place was a dream come true.
So one of the bad things about november is that the weather is cold, and the daylight is short, so this has caused me to go into my build mode. Sherri has been spending a lot of her time sending postcards to people in other countries. So I have been buying a lot of antique papers and books.
I found this book which was made in 1895. It is a bunch of black and white drawings of cities around the world. So Sherri has been making scans of random pictures like thes to put into the postcards she sends.
