This week I'm in Las Vegas. The weather is great - much better than the soggy and cold conditions in the Pacific NW. My saint of a wife, otherwise known as my-lovely-wife-Cynthia, is home preparing for a wonderful Christmas Eve party for family and friends. As our kids have kids, they're preparing their own family Christmas traditions.
It's a secret but I plan to take my-lovely-wife-Cynthia to Hawaii for 2 weeks, right after Christmas. She deserves a vacation and what better way to recover from winter doledrums.
