I’m home.  Exhausted but it feels great to be back!

My darling Kim and I got to see even more of the US and it was beautiful.  We found Utah and Colorado particularly breathtaking.

SeleenaK_gasThe weather cooperated, and although there was some pretty ugly stuff around us, we had sunny skies every day except for two.
Here is a photo of me doing what I did quite often.  Yes, I tried my best to tone down my look while traveling, and as you can see, I’m not really good at it.  But it seemed like the prudent thing to do .. especially when I know I’ll be using the restrooms in states where I could, in fact, be breaking the law just by being in there with the women.

Anyway .. a little about my journey.

I’ve always been intrigued by Route 66 – “The Mother Road”.  For those of you who are not aware, US Route 66 has been around since the 1920’s and was the major route between Chicago and Los Angeles.  It was also know as “Main Street America” because the road went right through the middle of many American cities.  It was also featured in a television series back in the 60’s.

The road was also featured in a song written by Bobby Troup and performed by Nat King Cole, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Depeche Mode and others.

When the Interstate Highway system was built in the late 1950’s and 1960’s, the old road pretty much lost it’s relevance.  But it’s charm remains today for those who love the open road.

It’s no longer possible to travel Route 66 from Chicago to LA but pieces of it still remain, often right beside the interstate highway that made it obsolete.

SeleenaK_9978sI decided that a Rte 66 highway sign would be a great photo opportunity for yours truly so I went in search of one with a background reminiscent of the old road charm.  And I searched. Flagstaff, Winona and Kingman Arizona, Gallup New Mexico, Amarillo Texas, Oklahoma City, Joplin and St Louis Missouri for just the right photo … and found nothing.  So just as I was nearing the end of the old road, I decided it was now or never and took the photo you see here.

The area, although quite beautiful, doesn’t have the charm I was hoping to capture but it will have to do for now.  I’ll try to improve on this photo if I ever drive out west again.

It appears that Route 66 signs are a coveted item these days and theft of these particular signs is very common.  Many of the cities on the highway have now removed all of the signs like the one in my photo and instead are putting them up high with the traffic lights in an attempt to deter “collectors”. hehe!

So enough talk about travel.  That’s likely not why you’re here.

As I mentioned, the Viva Wildside event in Las Vegas was a lot of fun.  And I look forward to doing it again some day.  My only regret was that I had brought a ton of video gear all the way there and really never used it.  I was hoping to recruit someone to operate the camera and the help me with my next video production but it seemed that the guys were too busy chasing the girls and the girls just weren’t interested.  Understandable though, since partying, drinking and dancing were their main reasons for making the trip.

So I’m getting my rest now, I’ve done the laundry and am getting the patio at Casa Seleena ready for another summer.  I’ll miss having my next video ready for you on the first Friday of May but will work hard to get something shot soon.

Lots of requests for “leg show” videos coming in so I’ll likely do something like that next.

I’ll be posting an album or two in the coming weeks of photos, mostly taken by others, of some of our hijinks in Las Vegas but I’ll try to alternate them with the type of photos you’re accustomed to seeing here.

Ohhhh .. heels!  I recently bough a new part of heels from UK.  Extremely slender stiletto heels and very pointed toes.  I’ll tell you about them in my next blog entry and will feature them in an upcoming photo album or video.

Stay tuned!

Las Vegas

Las Vegas was a blast! Special thanks to Nikki and Gina for organizing the entire week. I got to see some old friends as well as meet some new one’s.

I’m not sure that Las Vegas was ready for us. On two occasions an entire casino went silent as we all walked from the hotel to the cabs.  Not my style really.  I do prefer to slip in and out under the radar but to this group, it’s all about being seen.

But the city treated us very well. Some of the girls did experience some negativity but it was from other visitors, and only from the guys. Most women think we’re pretty cool.

I found that most of the girls were very into dance clubs .. and Las Vegas has tons of great ones .. but me personally, I’d rather play “footsie’s” under the table in a piano bar than shakin’ it and sweatin’ with the 20-somethings. But that’s just me.

Speaking of ass, here’s a pic of me headed for the strip.
I “limo’d” a little, “cabbed” often and walked way too much. But there’s no way to avoid that in Las Vegas. Even the walk from my room to get a cab was a marathon.

Will I do this particular event again? Not sure. Maybe my age is catching up with me but the dance club thing just isn’t fun anymore and I’m still of the belief that a girl doesn’t go out without stockings on. Old fashioned? Maybe .. but I like it that way, even though my style was somewhat different than many of the other girls in this particular group, where the boyish figure was quite popular.

Soooo … I know I missed a photo gallery update last week and promise to have something out there for this Friday. I only wish I could keep the video streak going on the first Friday of the month but a May 1st video is going to be pretty difficult.

I really needed to do this trip and should be home on Monday. I’m in New Mexico right now and am hoping to get my life back to normal soon.

I’ll try to post some candids from Las Vegas as they become available.

On The Road to Sin City – Day 6

I’m here! The last day of the drive was the most breathtaking of all. The Zion area of Utah was gorgeous and the small area of Arizona that I passed through might very well be the most rugged and breathtaking the state has to offer with the exception of the Grand Canyon.

But the real excitement started when we got the the hotel. Met my dear friend Lola at the hotel registration desk and after a quick freshening up, we all met at the Wildside hospitality suite and took limos to PF Chang’s for a wonderful dinner. Nikki, Gina, Ashley, Amy, Dale, Jackie, Petey, Glenda, Niya, Sandra, Lola, Angie, Emily, Rachel, Kate and Heather … all gorgeous and smiling.

Most went dancing after dinner, but the weariest travelers returned to the hotel.

CiCi, Joey, Bunny, Nicole and Lee Ann will be here soon to join us.

I’m not sure if I’ll be able to give you a day-by-day recap on my activities here but I do expect to share some photos with you as they become available.
