Friday Shoot Outs: Signs & Leisure(from last friday)

I've been enjoying the cleaning up our manuscripts posts on dangling participles, similes, tic words, and "body parts that do things on their own" . . . now for just a little break for Friday Shoot Out!

This Friday Shoot Out is: Signs, and from last week I think I can include Leisure. I think these photos could encompass both, since a vacation is leisure, right?


We are "supposed" to do "our town," but this town happens to be Las Vegas (and one from Spanish Town Mardi Gras in BR at the bottom). I went to LV in July, with my brother Tommy (and in earlier posts I told some stories of our trip).


A thought to consider for today or the weekend....Sometimes we say, or will hear someone say, "In My Next Life, I . . . "

What would you do in your next life you couldn't or can't or won't or didn't do in this one, if you were to come back as someone/something else? This isn't a trick question, where I will say, "Then do it!" this is meant only for fun. Or, if you will, what do you want to look like in your next life, or do you even want to be human? Sometimes I'll say, "In my next life, I will be tall and have long thick glorious hair."


So, complete the sentence: "In my next life, I will . . . " (look like, do, be, find, enjoy, become . . . etcetera!). Have a nice Friday, or weekend if you take a blog break! I'll be back with some other "cleaning up our manuscripts" posts ...
(and later I'll post more Las Vegas Trip stories, since these photos are reminding me - as well as Top Chef is on Bravo right now and it is in Vegas! meemoorrieessss....)



As I've said in other posts, it was hard to take good photos in vegas because of perspective - the sheer size, the crowds, things in the way...etc.









our hotel room at Cesars




the mall was full of designer stores...I gawked




I have included this one from the Baton Rouge Spanish Town Mardi Gras parade from this past spring (when Rog and I visited there) - the famous Spanish Town Capitol Grocery with all its signs in the window and the signs on the t-shirts of the employees doling out food! Food is EVERYTHING in South Louisiana!

The pictures of Vegas are making me sad. We usually go once a year in September, and we aren't going this year. Oh well! There's always next year. And in my next life, I will be taller so I can reach stuff on top shelves!

Sarah said...

Wonderful shots hon!! I love the last one..so bright. I do love New Orleans!! Sarah

Missy said...

Love the pic of your feet - you are so funny!
Vegas looks fun...I've never been. Probably no chance of me ever going because I hate to fly.....
In my next life I would like to come back as a cat. Eat, sleep, play...everday!

Have a great weekend!

I'm getting married in Vegas in less than a month!! I'm so excited - and your pictures just helped get me more excited for the trip :)

Great pics, bet you had a great time! In my next life I'd like to be born with the knowledge and understanding of life that I have now. Sort of skip over the icky, bumpy,awkward parts... Why not?

Barry said...

If I ever get to Vegas I'll know what to expect.

Food is everything here too, but just not as interesting as it is in South Louisiana!

Really enjoyed this Kat.

And enjoyed the new header too!!

Yeah Vegas. Yeah Top Chef. I am a big fan of folks who can cook. Nice pics.

I love your new header. A lot. Looking forward to Secret Graces (love the title).


In my next life fun and joy will come more easily.

I like the poker chip door number!

Loved the shots of Vegas, for some weird reason it is the one place in the USA I really want to visit. In my next life I will never learn to use domestic appliances, especially, especially, ovens.

Debbie said...

Are you sure those photos aren't from our stroll down the middle of G'burg?

Michelle said...

In my next life I.......will have already learned acceptance and grace and so will not have to go through this crap again. :)

Town Blogger Team said...

Sarah Lulu said...

Very nice and different for me to see!

In my next life I will be a talented artist and paint in a house overlooking the ocean.

Ah Vegas! We went last year, but stayed in the campground at the Air Force base... the name eludes me. We had a great time as I'm sure you did.

I enjoyed your signs.
