I am so happy to finally be home from all my travels since December. I'm not planning on jumping on an airplane for at least 5 weeks and that's to go see Jamie and Erik.
Taking Frankie to Vegas for his birthday was a lot of fun. It was made more fun because we're at a time in our lives where we can just pick up and go.
I waited until today to talk about Vegas and share over at
We haven't been to Vegas since we went to celebrate Jamie's 21st birthday. That was 7 years ago. A lot has changed since then.
...we are not gamblers. It just doesn't make sense to throw away hard earned money into that one armed bandit. (and they WILL steal your money!) But, we decided to throw caution to the wind and take quarters from our change jars and play. Well, the machines ONLY take paper money, tickets and credit cards. What fun is THAT? AND... when you win the coins don't come pouring out singing that CLANGITY CLANG CLANG song. WHAT? bah humbug to that I say. Well, those quarters came home with us and will just be saved for our next trip to Europe! Hmph
You can't go to Vegas being a prude! There are so many boobs, short skirts, tight pants and crazy a$$ hairdos that I commented to Frankie that Vegas is actually wilder and weirder than downtown Hollywood...or even Venice Beach.
Buffets aren't cheap anymore. You use to be able to grab a $2.99 breakfast buffet, $5.99 lunch buffet and under $10 bucks for a dinner buffet. I spent (cough 4x that dinner amt...on one of us!) It ain't cheap, but then how often do we do this? And it was for Frankie's birthday
I never get my money's worth at buffets anyway.
BEST SHOW IN TOWN?
Marc Savard comedy hypnosis. ~OMG~ I haven't laughed like this in years. I'm talking tears rolling down my face, can't catch my breath kind of laughing. It felt so good. I've loaded 3 videos for your entertainment. I know there are many skeptics out there on the whole hypnosis thing thinking "these people are acting." There is no way a group of people can get on stage and rehearse this stuff and act.
Now remember...these folks are hypnotized!
I sat and watched 2 hours of U-tube videos on Marc's shows and belly laughed for every minute of those 2 hours.
