I just did a post of 42 Valentine gifs on the QMB for all of you to snag.I will post many of them here as well.
After much too much thought ,like darn it all can i afford more debt I decided to the heck with it and throw money to the RH winds and just go. My logic is I can not "do" Orlando in June as it is much too expensive and the heat is so negative to the metal in me.
So if one is not doing that I figured this is the one to be at. I have lined up a room mate so by noon today I will have all in place.
I will be coming in on the Wednesday night and returning at dawn on the Monday. So I am so looking forward to renewing old friendships and making new ones.
When I did Vegas 05, I was the only RH gal from Edmonton and now there are a number of gals going. I am much too late to get into their plans but our paths will cross many times. I think the nuge I needed as at Tuesday's Edmonton Queen's Council meeting hearing about their excitement since for 2 of them this will be their 1st convention.
I will be doing of course Margaritaville on the Thursday night and the bead exchange. If there are other QMB get togethers please let me know.
Darn now to find some thing to wear for the cancan and is there a "tiara dress event"?
Hugs to all,
Merry Christmas to all from Canada.
I thought that you would get a chuckle from this poem. Darn it all Santa did not get me my Harley Man again this year and I have been sooooooooooooo good.
SANTA PLEASE SEND ME MY HARLEY MAN
All I want for Christmas is my Harley man,
My Harley man to love me, hold me and take my hand,
And leed me off to Sturgisland.
Sturgisland...bikes, beer, tats and cool gear.
Friendships forged in iron,
Rollin thunder ecco's throughout the Black Hills.
Mecca for thousands.
Black leather, white lace,
Smiles on all the faces.
To feel the rumble in my groin as you take me home
So Santa if you please
Don't be a tease
Send me my Harley Man.

Tonight I watched this magical nature program on Yellowstone at Christmas time. I have been here in the summer when it's a caravan of cars and campers. Where few get off the main roads to experience it's extreme beauty and rugged grandure.
"NATURE presents CHRISTMAS IN YELLOWSTONE, a breathtaking look at wintertime deep within America's first national park.
Stretching across more than 2.2 million acres of Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho is one of the greatest expanses of unspoiled nature and wildlife anywhere on Earth -- Yellowstone National Park . Designated America's first national park in 1872, Yellowstone now receives almost three million visitors each year. Yet only a small fraction of those who glimpse the park's stunning vistas, geological wonders, and animal residents do so during the winter months, a time when nature's inhospitality is matched only by its serenity.
NATURE follows in the snowy footprints of Yellowstone's red foxes, spies on the predatory warfare of wolves and elk, and climbs into the den of a grizzly bear that gives birth to two cubs while deep in hibernation. In addition to mesmerizing footage of landscapes and wildlife, trail alongside author and photographer Tom Murphy, who has been coming to Yellowstone for the past 26 winters, camping and photographing amid the silence and solitude of the park. And go behind the scenes with filmmaker Shane Moore to find out how he kept up with Murphy during an at times harrowing trek, reminiscent of the legendary John Colter's first journey into the park nearly two hundred years ago. "
When I was there it was after Labour Day when the park was winding down from it's crowed masses. I went there on a return trip from visiting my son at college in Missouri. I drove in from Casper through Riverton and Dubois towards the west entrance at Moran Junction. I was still driving and sleeping in my comfy caravan but it was quite nippy at night in mid September.
I did of course the tourist route from the south towards the north entrance south of the artsy town of Livingston,MT. Bison shared the road, elk rutting with dumb tourists standing much too close for comfort and of course regal moose wading for food in nearby streams.There is just so very much to absorbe as ones soul views the visual grandure of all that is around from the Tetans to geysers and beyond.
I have travelled a lot of the byways of Montana and Wyoming with many a time only me on a patch of road. I never worry about the "what if's" .As I do my photography to hopefully complement my poetry that will others a wee taste of what I am seeing .
I refer to these as rambles as I am now doing. I sound like a sound bit for the Wyoming tourist office.
I guess in closing if you ever get the chance like I know Tex does ,to discover for yourself this unique place on the earth,do so as it most definitely is one place you should see before you die.
