    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.

    Welcome... I'm in town for business monthly and I think I know Vegas, but I learn something new each and every visit. We'll love your take on things!

    Hi and welcome! I grew up a few miles from the La Purisma Mission.
