~Rock On~

Hello Girls, Well I'm so excited about this weekend...Not only is it Easter...But Len loves old cars , he loves to buy them, restore them, read about them, in fact he has 10 of them. well you get the picture, In fact I told you that's how I met him over 8 years ago he came up here to my mountain top because I had a Red 1967 El Camino for sale and he was here for over 7 hours...Well needless to say I knew by the time he left he was more interested in Little Red than my Red car ha ha!! Any way we have been planning this fun Rockabilly weekend in Las Vegas for over 6 months now...YIPPEE!!! Len will be in seventh heaven ha ha!! Music from the 50's with Chuck Berry...good grief he's older than dirt now ha ha!!

And Vegas may never be the same again...You see we have planned this fun trip so we could meet up with Chari and Russell from "Happy To Design" I met Chari about 3 years ago on another website "Rate My Space" and we fast became the best of friends...She is like the Sister I never had...sighs. I just know that we will have the best of time together....We are going to Paint that town Red ha ha!! Russ and Chari are driving their 1953 Ford all the way from Colorado to Vegas....while Len and I are the lazy ones and flying in to meet them on April Fools day ha ha!!

Now Chari is concerned that maybe the guys won't like each other...Well their guys and they both love old cars so what's not to like ha ha!! Chari has never been to Vegas before...Where as Len and I went 4 years ago and got married there on Christmas day...And No the Elvis Impersonator did not perform the ceremony ha ha!!

All the Daffs are in full Bloom and waiting for Easter day...May all of you have a GREAT week and I'll see you when I get back on April 6th...And "Remember what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" ha ha!!

So until next time from my mountain top to yours,

Hugs and smiles Glria

I just wrote and wished you a great trip...but I want to say it again. Chari is such a nice person! Warm and dear and you are fortunate to have her as a friend. You are both fantastic people...and I know your husbands will hit it off. Lots in common just as you gals do.

Hey there! I don't think I knew you and Len were practically 'newly-weds!' How fun will this be ??? Las Vegas, old cars, music from the 50's, blogger friends! Have a blast!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

I am so happy for you two! I know the guys will get along and you two are going to paint the town red! Now, I know what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, but maybe you can share just a wee bit! You know us bloggers, we are a curious bunch! Big Hugs Gloria, and have a safe trip too!

Sounds like a fun time is going to be had by all! My hubby would love to go to Vegas!! We used to go to Atlantic City all the time until Mohegan Sun Casino opened down the road from us!! Have a wonderful time and Happy Easter to you and yours!!

Sandra said...

Oh how fun, Gloria! I know too well about guys liking old cars! My hubby has a very old 41 Chevy truck that he dreams of restoring. He also has a 64 Chevy Impala, and a 64 Chevy truck. Sigh, someday he'll restore at least the 41 truck. Well you have fun with Chari, ok?
Have a wonderful time.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Gloria, I didn't know your husband is an old car nut, too. My husband has three cars he is restoring now down in the garage that was built a few years ago for this new hobby of his. He is down there right now working on one of them. We have been to Vegas about three times. You will have a great time and the guys will be fine since they both love cars!! Have a super good time!

Hi Gloria. I love those old muscle cars. They just don't make em like they used to. I remember racing guys in Camaros in my 350 Chevelle. I'd leave them in the dust and laugh at them. Couldn't beat the Road Runners, tho. Ah, those were the days. Now you be safe on your trip. You're real lucky to be meeting up with Chari. I swear, she is the sweetest gal. Try to stay out too much trouble. haha.

June said...

Gloria, your daffodils are awesome! What a beautiful picture of them all.
I wanted to come over and say thank you for commenting on my post. So glad you did, so I could find you.
Have a great trip!

You gals have a wonderful time in Sin City! I hope you win the big one! Hey, when did you get a blog button? Did I miss it or is this a new thing? I have the perfect spot for it on my sidebar. Your blog is a favorite, because it always teaches me something or gives me the best laugh of the day.
Hugs, Cathy
