Leaving for Las Vegas

I'll be out all week. I fly out to Las Vegas tonight for the SEMA show. It's a big car and truck aftermarket show. I'll be working at the Sportchasis (Freightliner) booth and promoting Hensley's trailer hitches and brake controllers.

I must admit that I'm looking forward to seeing Vegas. It's one of those places that's part of Americana, albeit a dark side. There's something about a city built entirely on gambling that bothers me. I'll refrain from further comment. Maybe I'll have a new perspective when I return.

For a writer, it's a goldmine. You can people watch 24 hours. You can also eat 24 hours.

I couldn't help but notice in my hotel/casino where I'm staying, The Excalibur, you have to pay for internet, the gym, and anything else that might keep you off the casino floor. I won't be paying for internet. Really, I can get it free at McDonald's now.

I'll try to find a "hot spot," though, and get online. Pray for me. I'm sure I'll have plenty to talk about next week.

Have fun, you heathen backslider. *snicker* JUST KIDDING. Really. My hubby went to Vegas on a business trip a few years back and he survived. It actually got on his nerves. :-D

Can't wait to hear the harrowing or is that hilarious tales. :-D

Sending prayers your way, dude! That's the hotel we stayed in last summer. Let me know if you get to check out the pool. We never did that. LOL!
