Gary was in Las Vegas for a conference last week. Sarah joined up for the weekend. We caught the Blue Man Group + Penn & Teller shows. I bet on the Rockies to win the World Series. Stoopid Red Sox.

The fountains in front of the Bellagio always draw a crowd.

During the conference, Gary + some co-workers went to the Pinball Hall of Fame. Just what everyone wants to see in Vegas. Here is Gary's coworker Paul playing "Pinball Circus", a very rare game many consider to be the "Holy Grail of pinball games."

Kitty update

You may wonder what has been happening with the famous garage kitty lately.

The garage kitty is just fine, she still enjoys sleeping on the cars in the garage and alternatively ignoring everyone and begging for attention.

When we tried to leave the other day she was napping on the roof of Sarah's car. We eventually talked her into taking a break from her hectic schedule.

construction & ladders

We've been doing a bit of work lately in our laundry room area. When we finally get all done I will post a series on it, before and after shots and everything.

But when we were getting paint from the hardware store down the road the other day, the truck parked next to us had a ladder rack, with ladders on top. I knew people decorated their toolboxes, but I did not know people decorated their ladders. Enjoy.

Rain? in L.A.?

What is this? Rain? In Los Angeles?

L.A. is having the driest year on record, only about 3-4 inches of rain in the past 12 months. Last weekend it rained here, and I have photographic evidence of this. There was panic in the streets.

An interesting story: We were driving to get some lunch the other weekend, and while we were stopped at a light in West Hollywood this disheveled guy was in the crosswalk. Sarah commented, "I think that guy is drunk. Its kinda early to be drinking." Just she finished making this statement, another man walked right in front of the car, barefoot, and eating a leaf. Both of us then said, "Well that guy may be drunk, but he's not as bad off as the guy eating the leaf!"

Only in Hollywood.
