My name is Candy, I grew up in New Jersey and moved to Las Vegas in my early 30's. I lived in Las Vegas for 26 years and worked in a few casinos as a dealer and eventually in surveillance...you know, the 'eye in the sky'. Then in 2006 I returned to New Jersey (family issue) where I stayed until 2013 when I returned to the southwest. I didn't go back to Las Vegas because the population had grown too much for my liking, but a small town in Arizona was very appealing and it's only an hour to Las Vegas.
I've been writing online since 2009 which is when my sister told me about a website called eHow. A couple of years later that site made a lot of changes so I moved on to Squidoo until they sold out to another website. I chose not to make the transition to the new site, instead I joined Wizzley and I love it here!

No Eleanor, I don't have a cat anymore but I think it's time to get another one. House in Vegas was a townhome, the other garage belongs to the neighbor.
Candy, I really felt sad reading about your cats! How sad for you. Am I messing something? Do you have a cat now? Your office -- your deck overlooking mountains -- iI would be terrified to live in the desert -- I need to see skyscrappers! Your home in Las Vegas looks as if you had two DOUBLE garages??? Keep writing!
Nice to meet you too dustytoes!
I'm always amazed (not amazing! ha... I hate that one too) at the scenery out where you live. It's so different from New England where I am. But what a view you have! It's stunning. Nice to meet you and all your cats, past and present.
Thanks for the kind comment and the shares Nancy Hardin. Yes, I will get another kitty...soon.
Do you plan to have another kitty in your life? I know how it feels not to have a pet after having them for so long. My Sarah (pug dog) has been gone over a year, but I still miss her little warm presence. I like this Candy, and I'm sharing on Google+ and FB.
jptanabe, it's too hot for me too in the summertime! That's when I work outside early in the morning, before 10 a.m.
I would love to sit and work in your office - but I fear it would be too hot for me. Thanks for sharing about yourself and your cats!
happynutritionist, NJ has its nice areas but as you said it's too congested. Arizona is a beautiful place for me to be!
Oh how I love your office...I am in NJ, and married to a hubby who is from out west, thought we'd end up out there, but here we are! It's a pretty area though, woodsy and lakefront cabin. But I'd love to be in a less congested part of the country.
