Posting adventures mostly from west of the Mississippi. The great Southwest, Vegas, Los Angeles & more! Living it up, getting around,sometimes reminiscing with my own unique perspective. Enjoying the finer things in life whenever possible. I work hard, so I play hard. Rock on!
Interests Friday night, socializing, film, music, writing, art, fashion, sleep sometimes, shopping, aliens, driving a fast car, gambling, travel, law, religions of the world. (Sometimes I even leave the big city for some camping and fishing.) Cufflinks, pocket squares, exotic liquors, cigars, Wasabi, the mysteries of the universe, baby animals. The sounds my sinuses make in Spring, guns, serial killers, insanity, the technical workings of a photon laser, world domination.
