As lovely as Vegas is, and it is lovely, it looks more and more every day that I’ll be forced to move on. Now since I am a Midwest / East Coast girl, when it comes to picking a place to live, rather than just a vacation spot, it turns out I know very little about west coast cities.
That acknowledged, I got out my trusty, dusty, paper map of the United States of America. Yes, I have a GPS and yes I’m fairly up-to-speed with the latest technology and I love tech gadgets. I actually window shop at technology stores and sites as often as I can, just for fun. I may be the only woman I know who loves fashion but doesn’t like to window shop – fashion great, window shopping, not-so-much, it’s like a tease.
So, as I was saying, I got out my old paper map of the US-OF-A so I could properly see just where the heck I am in the world and where I might be able to get to from here (Vegas). (With very little money, I should note.)
Well, there’s Utah, an entire state I suddenly feel I don’t know nearly enough about to go venturing blindly into it. Then there’s Colorado, (I actually have friends there but it’s too far away and very hilly, oh and let us not forget,
That took me to Arizona (Phoenix), I have a friend there too, at least I think we’re still friends. What do you think? When someone sits you down to have “the talk”, fills you in on their itinerary for the next few months, sets the next date, but then … poof, nothing, gone in 60 seconds. Okay, well not really 60 but there was a vanishing act involved. So, I just moved on with life. Now we’ve had a couple of brief and friendly conversations since then but am I good for a favor? Who knows, but all things considered, it can’t hurt to ask.
