Vegas in Spring-ish

I took advantage of Paul's testing being delayed (he was supposed to be in Yuma for March) and made last minute plans to meet my sister, Susan in Vegas for our "almost"
annual sister trip. I was on spring break anyway... and it's been too long since the last sister trip (in spite of our efforts to get together at least once a year).

I had so much fun... if only my feet did too. I came home with blisters... from all the walking in new-ish shoes. We stayed on the strip and walked everywhere, every day, for many hours each day. Well.. we did have breaks here and there for some gambling and meals and shows. But it FELT like hours and hours of walking to my feet.

One of the best comedy shows I've seen in a long time was happening at the Improv @ Harrah's during the week we were there. We saw Mark Price (Skippy from "Family Ties"), Maryellen Hooper, and Jeff Riezen. Jeff emcee'd the show as well as had his own style of comedy to share with the audience. I enjoyed everyone, but really felt a rapport with Maryellen. I laughed so hard, I had tears streaming down my cheeks.

Maryellen is a blogger, you can check out her blog at She doesn't blog daily, but she is consistent and funny.

Spring break in Vegas was wonderful. The temps were perfect- in the mid 70's and a nice breeze most days. I think the spottiest thing were our restaurant choices. My favorite place and meal turned out to be breakfast at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville at the Flamingo. Second floor deck overlooking the strip. Food was absolutely divine. Ate there twice.

Well, bed calls.. I have pics, but I have to wait to post them. Another entry soon.
