if it was my money, it stayed in Vegas.

Dear Friends,

So the Mother has gone home after two weeks of angst on my part, 12 casinos, far too many fattening dinners, and not enough drinking on my part. Here is a sampling of my texts to the Hubster from Vegas:

  • Hate Vegas
  • Hate casinos
  • Typing this from Caesar’s palace bathroom just had to get away from her for a couple of minutes
  • Saw Beatles LOVE show very good but very French
  • Still hate casinos
  • Save me
  • Decided to force her to walk until she’s exhausted
  • Mom just won $1275 jackpot

Which Mom actually did do; she won $1275 on a nickel “John Wayne” slot machine:

The pit bosses even needed to come out and count out cash to her. Mom was, however, disappointed as she though she’d be getting one of those “large checks”. All she got was the cash and a tax form as she needs to claim any gambling winnings over $1200.

Otherwise, we saw a lot of the Bellagio fountain displays:

Which were absolutely beautiful, as were the Bellagio displays for the Chinese New Year:

We did go to the Cirque du Soleil’s production of LOVE, the Beatles music show, and yes, the best way to describe it is:

  • It was very French
  • There were people bouncing around everywhere
  • Yellow Wellingtons are very important
  • If you look like Pee Wee Herman carrying a few daffodils, you will never find love
  • If you are Queen Elizabeth I, you will not have a back on your skirt
  • If you are in fact Sergeant Pepper, even if you find all the instruments, no one really cares

It’s amazing what you can learn in Vegas.

    I’ll keep all these things in mind, when and if I ever actually GET to Las Vegas. But, then again, I’ll also get to see my brother, my SIL, and the boys…sooo…might not be as stressful, heh.

    Good to hear from you, though!!

    My art friend just made me a copy of that Beatles LOVE CD which I love. I play it everynight while writing. I would love to see the combo of Beatles and French jumpie people.


Let me know what you REALLY think!
