I've lived in Vegas for more than 33 years - came here after retiring from the US Army. In that time, among other things, I worked at a pick-a-part junkyard, drove the city bus, drove a tour bus and gave guided tours, drove a taxi, and spent 10 years as a professional slot machine player. At the moment, when not spending too much time on discussion forums, I am working on the fourth historical novel in a series about the founding of the California missions - that I'm way behind on. My wife and I spend our "spare" time playing slots at select casinos. We aren't doing great but not bad either.
