Hope Everyone Kicked 2018 To The Curb With Fun…

Kris and I sure did.

We started off the day working, then a quick lunch, then more work. Then by 3 p.m. we were standing in a very windy, very cold park getting ready to run a “fun” 5k run to end the year. Wind died as we got started, so it turned out to be fun after all.

Then home for a nice dinner, then a little more work before heading out to Fremont Street at 8:30 to join the crowds there in downtown Las Vegas. We saw the ball drop in New York there, then went into one of the casinos and had a drink and watched tourists for an hour.

Then walked back home (we live four blocks from downtown Las Vegas) and watched a movie for an hour or so until finally just before midnight going up on our observation deck and watching 2018 go away and 2019 come in with massive fireworks over the Las Vegas Strip on one side and the downtown area on the other.

Considering that for the last ten years we have sat in a basement on the Oregon Coast and watched television, this was a major change this year and great fun.

So here are some pictures of us at the park getting ready to start the day. I hope everyone had a good New Year’s Eve. Now tomorrow it’s back to writing.

First picture is of Kris looking cold before the run and second one is of me finishing as the sun set.
