Leaving Las Vegas
In the struggle for supremacy between me and Vegas, Vegas has won. I am defeated, exhausted, and more footsore than I've been in my life. It is now 1:25 PT, and I'm just getting back from a day that included a run to Hoover Dam, the Grand Canyon, and the old strip downtown.
One of the most fun things we did was a bus tour hosted by this guy, who, interestingly enough has written his autobiography. He gave me his card and told me we should swap books, but I haven't heard back from him yet.
Last night my friend Angela and I went to see the Thunder from Down Under show, (male strippers for those who, like me, had never heard of it) and got my picture taken with six guys who could have posed for any one of our covers. Unfortunately, it isn't digital, so I can't post it.
We've been to all the big casinos, or will have by the time our flight leaves tomorrow night.
Got a few romance novel ideas while I was here, along with about a million pictures, including this one of me with Elvis and Captain Jack Sparrow. One thing for sure, I can honestly say it's been an experience, but even though it's been 70's and sunny this whole time, I'm ready to go home--snow and all!
