If there is one thing spending a little time in Vegas has taught me is that excess is standard fare.

Apparently this particular Elvis I was in search of is quite rotund and does an excellent impersonation of The King. Rumor has it he frequents the piano bar at “The Flamingo” and “Harrah’s” on Fridays. With only this half-assed information to go on, we knew he was somewhere in this city and it was on us to find him.
We had just finished our morning coffee and were trying to decide what we wanted to do for our last day in Vegas as we had already walked the entirety of the strip and had a number of unique experiences. Running a quick Google search for excursions, I stumbled across a tour group called, “Pink Jeep Adventures.”

As many of you may already know, I completed my first massive puzzle this past winter; the 5000 piece Ravensburger “Sistine Chapel Ceiling” puzzle. Well, the puzzle-bug has bitten me once again and I am preparing to begin another massive puzzle. This time I have “upped my game” and have chosen to jump to 9000Continue reading “The Bombardment of Algiers”
ell, how about that! Having read this somewhere and sometime after falling into a wikipedia and google induced black hole, I thought it would be fun to share some of the Mockingbird pictures I captured the last couple of weeks.
