I Wants Him

Wouldn't Kentuky make a wonderful commie?

Somehow I think Matt would disagree.


The best part about Kentuky? He loves to be held like a baby. He'll snuggle in your arms or your lap for some nice, long pets. He definitely shows physical signs of a hard life on the streets but he is such a lover.

If you are interested in adopting Kentuky go to or you can make a donation to PAWS by following this link:

Viva Las Vegas!

Matt and I recently celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary by revisiting the place where it all took place - Las Vegas, Nevada! This time we stayed at the MGM Grand and it was the best decision we made. They definitely made that hotel/casino large enough that you never have to leave it. It has everything you need right inside. Our favorite part was the 5 swimming pools!

They even had a Lion Habitat at MGM so we could get our kitty fix!

When we walked out of the MGM, we saw New York, New York!

We found a Bettie Page store inside the Miracle Mile Shops.

Me and Clifford sharing my Bacardi Lemonade at FAO Shwartz in Ceasar's Palace.

We were so close to meeting Dick Butkus!

The Excalibur had hot dog and beer deals for $3.50! Matt ate a lot of hot dogs and at one point I had 3 beers sitting in front of me!

This time we made it to the top of the Eiffel Tower Experience!

I'll have to put the rest of my pictures in another post. This one is getting too long.
