Las Vegas Laugh, photo and all text © Irene O’Garden, 2014
Captured this image last week in Las Vegas, where family members gathered to surprise my younger brother Jim on his 60th birthday.
It might be that this gizmo dispensing little rolled-up flats could soon outstrip one-armed bandits and roulette wheels to become the most popular machine in Vegas. My stiletto days are behind me, but the muscle memory lingers on…
The trip was healing–a wonderful chance for us all to laugh and connect for happy reasons. Nephew Mike and his delightfully droll wife Jolyne brought along our newest family member, Creighton, soon to turn one, and a joyful presence he is.
And, in the beautiful rolling wheel of our lives, so recently touched by death, came news of their second baby, due in October. Praise life.
Happened to notice that today marks my one-hundredth post. Know that your eyes and ears continue to inspire me. Thank you.
