Well, my camera hasn't seen the light of day in what seems to be forever. Between work, finalizing my mom's issues, dealing with doctors and aids and then there's the sewer pipe that decided to drip all over the basement floor this weekend and the tire that declared it needed more pressure when I pulled into the parking deck this morning...well, you get the picture.
I can't recall when I had a day when I went straight from the office to home, had dinner at a reasonable hour, got in bed before the grandfather clock struck 11 and was able to enjoy a good book without my mind wandering off to the pressing issues of the day.
A dear friend has offered me an overnight stay at one the casinos in Atlantic City. You know I'm not a gambler but you can be sure I'll be taking her up on this offer. I'm a sucker for a hot tub and a great buffet. And I know a buffet is one of the worst places to eat if you're trying to be in control but, I NEED THIS NIGHT!
Anyway, thinking about getting away I came across these shots from our A.C. excursion last fall and decided to investigate who the artist was that created this unusual glass work at The Borgata. Maybe I'm living under a rock but this is the first time I've heard of Dale Chihuly. I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I did. For me, there was a big Ooooooo and Ahhhhhhh factor here.
