[Las Vegas, August 13, 2010]

I enjoyed three days in Arizona, days that were capped by my JPG meet-up with Mary Brown.

I think I have some great shots of Jerome, Arizona and Oatman, Arizona, and all of Route 66 from Ash Fork, Arizona to California.

I have just pulled into Las Vegas for two days of R&R before plunging into the Utah's Red Rock country. Then, I will be offline until about the 22nd.

I took this just a few minutes ago. It is my "casino game face." I can hear the croupiers now: "Here comes another one. He must be from Dubuque." LOL

Why am I smiling? Two reasons, JPG decided to pick up the entire tab for this trip and, in 4 weeks, I can start drawing my Social Security! I will need it, me thinks, after tonight's carnage at the "gaming" tables. (Politically correct pukes cannot even say "gambling.")

Thanks for stopping by and for all of the support!

P.S. This is the only shirt I brought on this trip!

    I love this travelogue and am totally envious of not being there! ☺ Your red shirt reminds me of the blue jeans that my late father-in-law wore on a trip out West several years ago. They just about had to burned at the end of the trip.

    I checked with Linda......you have 27 of those shirts, and you packed them all!! Luckily red is a good color for you! Wow....JPG has really been generous as of late; I hope Social Security will be equally generous--before they run out of funds!! I can't wait 'til I'm old enough to collect!!!! Thanks so much for keeping us poor home-bound folks entertained with your travels, and enjoy the rest of your trip!!!

    Wow, what a roll you're on (a term you'll hear often at the craps table). My son and his wife live in Vegas....I lived there for 8 years! You'll have a blast!! Go to the Gold Coast, walk up to the craps table and place $25.00 on the "don't pass" line. It was my favorite bet at the tables. My favorite game though was all night 7 card stud in the poker room. I lived two blocks from the Gold Coast. I love your travelogues, Richard!!! It's very interesting to hear about all the places you're venturing into and out of. Maybe you can play enough to be comped for a lobstah dinner. :)))

    Cool shot!...How did you get jpg to pick up the tab?.....you must have powers...

  • Richard Knight

    Richard Knight said (14 Aug 2010):

    Thanks, everyone, for the kind comments. I guess I should "revise" my remarks about JPG paying my expenses. That was wishful thinking on my part. I will have to write off the cost of this trip from my tax return, instead. LOL. As for my luck at the "gaming" tables, I have been "Dubuqued." (I am not actually from Iowa. I should have gone to the Iowa State Fair this year; it would have been a lot cheaper than rolling dice in Vegas!) Thanks!

    My sincere thanks to everyone. The new shooter was not treated very well in the casinos, but the shows were great. One of the best we saw was a retro look at the "Four Seasons" ("Sherry," "Walk Like a Man," "Big Girls Don't Cry," etc.). Thanks again to all of you.
