Our One And Only Wedding Picture   6 comments

Ken & Joy Wedding Art_edit blog “One and Only” Wedding Picture
Joy and I had been partners for 16 years before deciding to elope to Las Vegas, 
 getting married at the Clark County Court House in 2002,
which distraught family and friends. 

The couple who were our witnesses took the only picture —
Can you believe I didn’t have my camera!
We tend to do things in a non-traditional way.

Courthouse full of ghosts
No Vegas Elvis Wedding
Strangers our witness.

On The Cobble-Stone Walk Of NYNY   Leave a comment

NY NY-1783-2 blog.jpgImage by kenne

A beautiful day
I wait at the walk-up bar
At New York-New York.

The spring air is dry
As misters spray overhead —
Makes the air special.

The gaming goes on
Much to her delight inside
The casino halls.

My pint of Bass Ale
Getting low in the glass mug —
Time to order food.

The Bellagio Fountains Art   3 comments

Bellagio-3325_art blog IIComputer Art by kenne (Las Vegas, February 5, 2018)

Visitors
to Las Vegas
can be seen
standing
and waiting,
some up to
30 minutes
just to see
the fountains
of Bellagio,
truly one
of the best
free shows
in Vegas, 
beautifully 
choreographed to
Frank Sinatra singing
“One Singular Sensation.”
One moment
in its presence
provides a
thrilling
combination
in every move
as the water
rockets and
dances in front
of the Vegas
Eiffel Towel.

And if blue is an illusion,
what will become of innocence?
What will become of the heart
if Love has no arrows?

Bellagio Fountains-3324 blogParis Las Vegas — View from Bellagio by kenne

I’ve never been to Paris
so Paris Las Vegas 
will have to do for now.

I’ve also been to Paris, Texas
where I once conducted 
an in-service, not much there.

We stayed in New York New York,
the pool was drained 
and the
casino computers went down.

Still, my favorite Vegas past time
is people watching especially 
topless women walking the Strip.

If all ideas have to be bought,
then you have an intellectually regressive system
that will assure you have a highly knowledgeable elite
and an ignorant mass.
