Happpy Birthday, Dad!

Today is my father’s (Mr. Vargas) birthday. Happy birthday, Dad! Dad is on vacation and inaccessible, so I did not call him, like I called my mom a few days ago. That also means that Luella, our cat didn’t have a chance to sing for Dad. Somehow, though, I don’t think he minded too much.

Thank you, Veterans!

We all need to take a few moments today and reflect on what we have. And after we’ve done that, we need to think about who sacrificed to make it all possible. For more than two hundred years, the United States has offered an experiment in democracy and self-rule. In order to continue this experiment, […]

Another Average Day

Yesterday was one of those average days where you know you got something done, but you simply cannot put your finger on any specifics. I was awake for around seventeen hours, but there is very little concrete I can point to that I did. I already posted about having Luella sing for my mom on […]

Moving to Vegas: Day 4, the second half

We were now in New Mexico, a place Dad and I had never been before. We both grew up and have mainly existed on the East Coast. Sure, we’ve been to other places, but we never drove cross-country through them. We were absolutely not prepared for the beauty that unfolded before us. At first it […]

Moving to Vegas: Day 4, the first half

Well as nice as Texas had been, it was nice to see another state. Hello New Mexico! I felt like we had now made real progress. So far the journey was going extremely well, especially since we had tow alpha-males in the truck. Not only were Dad and I still speaking, but we were still […]

Risky business begets free eats: one of the cool things about living in Vegas

One of the cool things about Las Vegas is the abundance of places to eat. And most of them are really good places to eat. I used to live in Orlando, and a good place to eat there is a national chain where the weird stuff nailed to the walls is usually more compelling than […]
