VIVA LAS VEGAS

DAY THREE AND WE ARE AT THE FOUNTAIN IN CAESAR'S PALACE. WE HAD A BALL. IT WAS AS HOT AS HADES THERE...105-107. WE WOULD WALK A FEW PLACES AND THEN DUCK INTO A SHOP OR CASINO TO COOL OFF. NONE THE LESS WE HAD A GREAT TIME. WE BURNED THE MIDNIGHT OIL EVERY NIGHT AND GOT UP WITH THE BIRDS. NOT A MOMENT TO SPARE. WE SAW THREE SHOWS: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, THE LION KING AND LE REVE. THEY WERE ALL WONDERFUL BUT OUR FAVORITE BY FAR WAS LE REVE. IT IS BEYOND WORDS TO DESCRIBE IT!! THE LION KING WAS AMAZING. THE PHATOM WAS GREAT AS WELL BUT IT WAS OUR THIRD FAVORITE.
NOW WE GAMBLED EVERY DAY AND LET ME JUST SAY WE WERE NOT IN THE WINNING CIRCLE AND THAT IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT!! WE SPOKE TO FOLKS WHO GO 2 TO 3 TIMES A YEAR AND HAVE FOR YEARS. THEY WERE VERY DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE THE CASINOS HAVE THEIR MACHINES WOUND TOO TIGHT. THE ECONOMY IS REALLY BAD THERE AND THE CASINOS ARE TRYING TO MAKE THEIR MONEY THROUGH THE SLOTS. AS A RESULT YOU CAN GO THROUGH A WHACK OF MOOLA IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. KINDA TAKES THE FUN OUT OF IT. THE MACHINES DON'T EVEN TRY TO TEASE YOU WITH WINNING A LITTLE THEY JUST SUCK IT UP. OH, WELL, WE STILL HAD A FABULOUS TIME. I AM STILL RECOVERING AND I HAVE CAUGHT SOME KIND OF BUG. I WAS SICK AND DIZZY ALL DAY YESTERDAY. TODAY I AM A TAD BETTER BUT STILL NOT GREAT. I AM GOING TO KEEP A LOW PROFILE FOR A FEW DAYS.
IT IS NICE TO BE HOME. I WILL BE CATCHING UP WITH EVERYBODY.
HAVE A GOOD ONE. DEBBIE

I\'m so glad to hear your having a good time, you deserve it.
I think I\'m about ready for some kind of vacation, it is still raining to the point of just being depressing. Did get almost two days of sunshine and I did some work outside but we\'re back to very heavy rains today. Of course night before last our generator decided to croak so we\'re relying on solar power now ~sigh, not much of that happening.
