(not very) vintage me

Taken in Vegas at the Blue Man Group show, I believe around 2005...?  2006?

If I remember correctly (because the memory is indeed fading!), this was one of my first bigger trips after the accident as a one-legged lady.  I seem to recall this being the trip where I learned how to navigate an airport and get through security with all sorts of apparatus and metal in my body, etc....and I remember learning the difference between covering large distances (ie large casinos!) using crutches, a wheelchair, or a prosthetic (which wasn't fitting well).

This trip was with TheMostImportantGuy and our friends (another couple) who had invited us along because they were treating us to tickets for a Cirque du Soliel show while we there (Zumanity). For some reason, I think it was also around the time of my birthday...but I might really be making that part up. The white stuff around my neck is a fancy toilet paper scarf.  They had put a whole mess of rolls on long dowels and they were blowing the TP out like streamers all over the auditorium by using a lawn/leaf blower to shoot it out.  It was a fun show.

Anyhow. Ran across this photo the other day (cleaning up around here!). I just love it :-)
