Forty is the old age of youth; fifty the youth of old age. -~Victor Hugo The desert southwest at sunset from 33,000 ft. We took a short trip over the weekend to celebrate Mrs. Sneed's birthday. And not just any birthday, mind you, one of the big ones. You know, the ones that are a multiple of ten. If Abe Lincoln was alive and could give the keynote for Mrs. Sneed's birthday celebration, he would have a ready-made opening for his speech. Minus a score and seven, of course. We went to a podcast gathering in Las Vegas. In addition to watching three of the regular podcasts we listen to being done live. We also got to hear Chazz Palminteri discuss his screenplay, movie and one-man show, A Bronx Tale. We had a great time. Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

Happy birthday to Mrs. Sneed. She can take consolation in that some of us will always be ahead of her in reaching those milestones of life!

I guess Vegas is pretty close for you, because you go there so often. I will be heading to New Orleans on Friday, but I will not be seeing a podcasts, because I don't understand podcasts.

I like the idea of 50 being young in some cohort. When we can blossom into a new kind of immaturity. tee hee
