Art and the philosophy of life


I haven’t taken the chicklets to Vegas in a couple of years.  We always stay at the Aria, since they took all the fun out of NY, NY years ago.   But the chicklets love to visit the Flamingo everyday, because of the beautiful birds, koi, and garden area.  They were going through old photographs and found this one.  Now they want me to take them on a vacation.  I’ve explained that we can’t go, because of the virus, so they are thinking of having a Las Vegas party this summer.

The Stage Crew built the Flamingo on Wheels for the baby chicklets, because some of them wished they could have gone with us.  Now that all the chicklets have seen the photo, they’re getting the flamingo out of storage.  I’m sure the party will be fun, and the Stage Crew is already drawing up plans for slot machines that take corn kernels.  They said the roulette tables will be a snap.

The entertainment is going to be spectacular and very flashy, according to the costume and entertainment committees.  Still, they admit, it won’t be the same as being there.  The Sound Committee is going to work on a machine that will make a lot of noise, so the chicklets will think they are in the casino.

Truth be told, the chicklets spent most of their time in Vegas, shopping and going to shows. Pressing the button on the slot machines hurt their beaks, and the One Arm Bandits had them sitting on top of the machine, then jumping onto the lever.  Lots of accidents and not much fun.  I think they lost six and a half dollars between them.

They love the fountains at the Bellagio and sit on the railings peeping with glee and chirping to the music.  They also love the street artists, especially the violinists.  Two of them were hypnotized by all the flashing lights, which was a problem at first, but we worked it out. But because of that, the Lighting Committee is going to be very careful about how they light things up.

The excitement is spreading, and the Cooking Committee is setting up a meeting with the hens about the menu.

I think it might be fun.  The Entertainment Committee is planning on comedy acts (I’m looking forward to that one) and lots of singing and dancing.  They were thinking of doing things like Cirque du Soleil, but no one thinks they can really pull it off, and none of the chicklets are willing to dive into water, or run up and down a slanting wall, like  they do in Ká.  So it will take some time for them to get everything straight.  We just have to wait and see what happens.  I’m sure it will be…interesting.

  1. sounds like an adventure, all those exotic birds, their pink plumes, what a sight, cheers

  2. I’m sure it will be a wonderful adventure! I’ll send some new, shiny pennies for everyone to throw in the water and make a wish

  3. I could help design SHOWCHICK gowns!

  4. Wonderful! Ka was the coolest, wasn’t it?
    I think the Chicklets are going to create something spectacular.

    • I liked it. One of the dancers was killed on that wall, so it was dangerous. I did like a a couple of other shows better, but it was still wonderful. 😉 I would love to be there right now, just walking around, eating ice cream and enjoying the fun and the people.

      • Yes, I know. How horrible. I loved O, too. I’ve only been to Vegas twice, so only saw two shows (At the price they cost, one per visit is enough). I loved walking up and down the strip, going in and checking out the public washrooms! They were ridiculous. It’s a fun place to spend three days, I say 🙂

      • That was also a good show. I like Love, the Beatles. It was fun. I’ve like all of them, pretty much. We say Lewis Black, so funny. My daughter and I would go every year, for awhile, but three days is definitely enough.

      • Being from Montreal, I used to go every year to see whatever new production they had under the big tent. Funny thing is, when they started out, they set up in the parking lot of a shopping centre! I love them. No animals, just acrobats, humour and wow-factor.
        Oh yeah. Three days is more than enough!

  5. oh fun! I’m sure it will be very cool and exciting!!
