|The Life and Times of Jim|
|Hi, there. I'm Jim. Welcome to my phlog!|
This site was written for Las Vegas, then LouisVille. Now, it seems to be about anywhere. In these phlogs, you'll see a lot of my personal notes and pictures. I like to post my observations here to remember life and celebrate it. I'm not religious. I don't pray for good fortune. I'm ecstatically grateful for the gift of life and I think our time should be remembered and not taken for granted. I'm not a writer. I think pictures tell stories so much better than words. I love just about everything in this life, and, I guess that would have to include you. So, if you've seen me, don't be surprised if your picture is in here somewhere. Of all the critters, people are absolutely the most interesting.

You get used to seeing the same smiling faces everyday. All of these people have left in the past few months. Lonnie, (below) left today. We still see Georgia from time to time. Jennifer calls once a week. Jeff IM's me or emails a joke my way.
When people leave, it feels like I've lost a part of myself. I've learned to adapt to their personalities through our conversations. In effect, I've added some of their personality to my own.
Most of the contractors have left before 1 year. I seem to be blessed. I've been there for a year and a half
01/27/2010 22:07:03jim Sorry about not posting much lately
Strange times are ahead.
I can't even predict where we will be living in two months. Its going to be an unplanned, and unpredictable year.
Georgia is a friend of Becky's and mine.
She came over for a photo shoot. Since I couldn't email her 60 megs of photos, I put them on this site so she could get them. She's a great gal.
Becky and I have been laying low.
We're couch potatoes these days. With the economy zapping our investments and real estate last year, it makes sense to sit back and save.
We've become, whats a nice way to put it....dull.
So here's the skinny
I may start working full time here, and become a Pennsylvania resident. If that happens, Becky and I may come back to Vegas to grab a few things, take care of some business, and we might even get married. It depends. If I lose my house, I don't want her credit affected. We'll have to wait.
Right now, things are up in the air.

01/24/2010 09:58:34jim Gambling at the Rivers Casino
I like the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh (if only it had a hotel).
Becky hit 4 deuces on her last dollar for $200.
We split it, but I staked her to $20, I lost $20, and bought our $65 dinner, so I lost $5 and she won $100.
Funny how that works?
I'm lucky she's lucky. (Was that a good sentence).

01/12/2010 08:00:22jim Funny thing about Angels
Angels don't come with wings. They are everywhere. They don't stick out.
You have to find them, and they don't even know they are Angels.
Becky and Sonny are my angels...but every once in a while, another one comes into my life, and it is always unexpected.
I sent Outback Gift Cards out this Christmas, and I made a little comment in Facebook about the thank you's I got this year, compared to last.
It looks like that was a good recipe for shaking the angels out of heaven.
Georgia took Becky out last night.
They ate dinner and went shopping. When they came back, I got a gift.
Most of the people I know these days are living month-to-month.
So when I do nice things for people, I don't expect anything in return. Just a thank you.
Besides, kindness always seems to be returned in other times, and in other ways.
I call those who send kindness my way, My Angels.
But when an act of kindness is returned almost immediately, things change.
I call those Angels, my friends.
And having an Angel for a friend, is one the greatest achievments I could hope for.
