Las Vegas is calling me.
I love Vegas for its late nights, neon and Mid-Century Modern remnants.
If you look for it, you can still see bits and pieces from its Atomic past.

We found this amazing mosaic wall walking back from the neon boneyard.
It is near Fremont Street.

And the fabulous Stardust Casino, pictured in this vintage postcard,
is no longer there. It was torn down years ago but you can see parts of the sign
if you take a tour of the neon sign boneyard at the North end of the strip.

The Sands is gone. So are Dino and Count Basie.
Dean Martin and the Rat Pack...that was the Vegas I wish I could have seen.

And now the Sahara is closing...

Look at those beautiful letters...

And if you are lucky enough to fly in or out at night,
Vegas looks like a glittery pile of rhinestones.
I miss you Vegas!
