Off to Vegas, Baby!

We leave this evening for Las Vegas. This is the second trip I'll have made to "Sin City", and I'm looking forward to spending a few days on the Strip.

The other day, while Tonjia was at the Hairdresser, her stylist told me "Good luck with the craps tables". I misheard her as saying "Good luck with the craft table", and I was wondering what kind of craft table I was supposed to be assembling.

I've been practicing at on line casinos, playing for fun, rather than real money. It's too bad that the casinos in Vegas don't let you do that too. I'm a great gambler when it doesn't involve real money, but when it comes to having to pay out real green, I'm definitely a "Low Roller". We will probably be playing the penny slots, rather than the high roller tables. I doubt Tonjia and I will be getting the comps. Oh well, at least it's a fun get away.

Unfortunately, I've come down with a head cold, so the flight is going to be an experience. At least it's only about an hour's flight. We leave here at 9 pm MDT, and arrive at Las Vegas at 9:25 PDT. The weather is supposed to be nice, but windy tonight, so the landing may be a bit bumpy. I'm not the worlds best flyer, even in the best of conditions, so a bumpy flight is not my favorite thing.

We are staying at the Excalibur Hotel, at the south end of the Strip. Last time we stayed at Circus Circus, which was fun, except for the clowns. Is there anyone who actually likes clowns? I've always found them creepy.

Wish us luck, and catch up with you later.



  1. clowns are absolutely creepy!

  2. dana...Hoping you and Tonjia are having a blast. As a child, Bozo was OK. As an adult, I am terrified of the Burger King clown. Our poor children and grandchildren!
