Watch out for that ottoman!

 
A great big thank you to Mort across the pond and at the journal Caring and Sharing for including me as one of his Guest Editor picks. Mort writes that I include lots of good pictures in my journal, but my flowers are nothing compare to his massive mounds of blooms!
 
Thank you, Mort, it was a nice birthday present!
 
I'll be taking my camera to the casino tonight, so maybe I'll get a few pictures of us high rollers. Ha! Yeah, right! I'm always stunned to see tables with a minimum bet of $100. I think they have even higher ones in Vegas, into the thousands. My favorite is the $3 tables in downtown Vegas! Well, we don't go to win big, we go to play. Our goal is always to at least come out even, and I've been practicing my handheld blackjack game this afternoon. <grin>
 
And goody! I get to wear my new sandals! (I can hear you all yelling, "Oh, hurray for Beth!") I thought about wearing one of my new skorts, but it's usually chilly-willy in there, and I'd get cold. Capris it is, with a lightweight sweater set. And you have to wear pearls with a sweater set, right? I believe I'll break mine out.
 
Hey, I'm goin' all Laura Petrie tonight--Capris, sweater set, pearls. Ohhhh, Rob!

CONGRATULATIONS Beth for being picked "Guest Editor!" I have been enjoying your journal for the last few weeks.
As soon as I read the word casino I thought of the great movie 21 that I watched last week. If you haven't seen it-you might enjoy it. It's out on DVD.
Hope you had a nice night out Ü.

HUGS~Donna

I think I have visited you a time or 2 but I see we share a  RERLATIONSHIP with Mort.  Also guest editor, picks.  You are a great writer.  I think that is one reason I don't come by to often.  I feel I can't keep up.  Lucille4364  Better known as Lucy
