When did Planters start making lube?

We headed to Las Vegas tonight. 

And as we flew south from SFO I think I saw the new spaceship shaped Apple building all lit up. 

Well it excited me anyway.


I've the usual garden variety moans and groans of travel. How was that Oatmeal cookie worth $4? Why does everyone crowd the gate before their number is called? Dogs on planes. Over-sized pillows on a 58 minute flight. Blah, blah, blah.

After you pick up bags and get on the shuttle to car rental it seem like you ride for 50 minutes.

And at all times your line of sight includes a billboard for a personal injury lawyer. They seem like nice people don't they? 

For the 2nd time during this West Coast trip we were awarded an SUV with Washington plates, and then we headed for our carefully selected lodgings!

I chose The Palms because, it's not on the Strip, and it's not Downtown (which I learned last year is full of crazies).

The Palms has 2 towers, and of course we were awarded a suite in the Ivory Tower.

This is relevant because if we ever turn into one of those couples who 'name' their house, it will be Ivory Tower, based on a family member once saying we lived in an Ivory Tower in wonderfully liberal Cambridge, Massachusetts.

By definition it is; an environment of intellectual pursuit disconnected from the practical concerns of everyday life.

I like that!


It was almost 9pm by the time we reached our suite. And almost 9.10 by the time I stopped opening every drawer, closet, and curtain plus checking out all of the lotions and potions.

This included an intimacy kit which included the sexiest of all disclaimers; made in a  facility that also processes peanuts.
