Mike & Marcy go to Vegas


My brother Mike and his beautiful wife, Marcy, went to Vegas recently and I wanted to share some of their pictures with you.  Mike - he's such a happy guy.  He is married to the most wonderful gal - Marcela.  They are so in love and have been together for about 6 or 7 years now.  It makes me happy to see my brother so happy and in love.  We should all be so blessed.



My brother is a funny guy too.  He sends me stuff like this on a regular basis:

A Jack Daniels Fishing Story: 
I went fishing this morning but after a short time I ran out of worms.
 Then I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in his mouth. Frogs are good bass bait.
Knowing the snake couldn't bite me with the frog in his mouth I grabbed him right behind the head, took the frog, and put it in my bait bucket.
Now the dilemma was how to release the snake without getting bit. So, I grabbed my bottle of Jack Daniels and poured a little whiskey in it's mouth. His eyes rolled back, he went limp. I released him into the lake without incident and carried on fishing using the frog.
A little later, I felt a nudge on my foot. There was that same snake
 with two frogs in his mouth.
Life is good in the South.



I don't mind.  Well, maybe sometimes I do.  He used to inundate my email box with all sorts of crap, but then decided to only send me funny stuff or risk my wrath.  



They had a fun time in Vegas.  He didn't bring me back a souvenir - daggonit.  I'm his baby sister, and I can act like a baby if I wanna.  Mike - next time you go somewhere, please bring me back a souvenir. Maybe a plastic cup from some restaurant or a t-shirt or something.  I'm your baby sister, I'm allowed to whine.  It's my job.



Wow.  I want to go there too!!!  See this beautiful garden of flowers?  They're all fake.  



I gotta tell ya - this is too funny.  Imagine seeing Elvis!!  He's fake too.



For this picture I left Mike a comment on his Facebook photo: 

"I wish this was in focus. Mike - you really have got to learn to adjust the settings (ISO and WB) on your camera so that you get clear pictures at different times of the day and in different light situations. Still - as for this picture, the sky is so unbelievably gorgeous it almost doesn't look real. Now - learn to use your camera!"

Then Mike called me on the phone laughing his butt off.  "Susan - it's all fake.  That sky is painted on the ceiling.  You mean you didn't see the beams holding up the ceiling?"

Uh .... Nope, didn't see that, Mike. That's wild though, don't you think?  It looks so real!!

Can you tell I've never been to Vegas?

Now - Another funny email from my brother:

A couple was invited to a swanky costume party.  The Mrs. got a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the party alone. He, being a devoted husband, protested but she argued and said she was going to take some aspirin and go to bed and there was no need for his good time being spoiled by not going. 

So he took his costume and away he went. The wife, after sleeping soundly for about an hour, awakened without pain and, as it was still early, decided to go the party. 

Since her husband did not know what her costume was, she thought she would have some fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she was not with him.

She joined the party and soon spotted her husband cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every nice woman he could, and copping a little feel here and a little kiss there.  His wife sidled up to him and being a rather seductive babe herself, he left his current partner high and dry and devoted his time to the new babe that had just arrived. She let him go as far as he wished naturally, since he was her husband.

Finally, he whispered a little proposition in her ear and she agreed. 

So off they went to one of the cars and had a quickie. Just before unmasking at midnight, she slipped away, went home, put the costume away and got into bed, wondering what kind of explanation he would make for his behavior.

She was sitting up reading when he came in, and she asked what kind of a time he had.  He said: "Oh, the same old thing. You know I never have a good time when you're not there."

"Did you dance much ?" I'll tell you, I didn't dance even one dance. When I got there, I met Pete, Bill Brown and some other guys, so we went into the den and played poker all evening. But you're not going to believe what happened to the guy I loaned my costume to......
