    No not in prison. Just dealing with health issues. VMB sent me a message for my birthday. Miss coming here and reading about Vegas and other things on people's minds.

    I have 3 ruptured discs and am not a good candidate for surgery. So I plug along doing my work and learning about myself and life. Wish I could travel more but that isn't in the cards right now.

    I enjoyed going to Vegas. Not much of a gambler so I spent time checking out the casinos and how they are built. Amazing structures. I am the type who would love to see all the behind the scenes stuff. How do they do laundry for that many rooms? What does it take to cool those structures? How many people does it take to keep the place running and clean?

    I seem to end up talking to people who are behind the scenes. As an example one time I got the whole story of a guy in housekeeping that had come here from England.

    Not much into bars anymore. Did plenty when I was younger so now I just hang out and meet people who like to talk.

    Hope you find relief from your back issues soon Uncle. I have somewhat similar issues with extensive arthritis though out my spine and joints that makes travel difficult for long stretches, like the plane ride to vegas. I manage but fully understand the restrictions back issue cause people. Hope you get back to vegas some day soon and feel better!

    As someone who just returned from a 2.5 year absence, Welcome back...

    I've learned you can check out, but you can never leave VMB!

    Welcome back. I had also been absent from VMB for a few years as well. It has been nice coming back. Hope the same for you.
