The last time I posted on a Monday I was whining about snow. So clearly, it's been a few weeks. A big Thank You to asphaltcowgrrl for picking up after me. You are awesome sweetie.

In personal stories, and you may have already heard this elsewhere, I am turning 50 this year and while complaining about not knowing what big thing I should do to celebrate, haldoor said "Hey, why don't we meet you in Las Vegas?!?" And so I'm traveling west this fall! It's exciting and intimidating and feels like it's scheduled for next year and several years from now all at once! And we're going to see Bryce Canyon which has been on my bucket list since before I knew what the term 'bucket list' was.

How are you all doing? What are your big plans? And on to the stuff!

1 – FLASH CHALLLENGE – Your amazing Monday prompt is - Crazy road side attractions Give me 100 words or a graphic for the fabulous sake of saying you’ve done it! I once went to see a 'dinosaur museum' which turned out to be watching a video in someone's converted garage and then climbing on the shale rock in their back yard looking a actual fossils! It was tacky and cool all at once!
