    Trips to Las Vegas:
    I just got back from the Rio and met a player who was in the open pool tournament formerly at the Riveria. He was born in NY and now retired living in AZ. He told me that he has health problems and has steel rods in him. It takes about 2 hours each morning to get out of bed. In spite of his set backs,he won some money and was going home yesterday (Friday, Aug 19). A very nice, warm and pleasant person. I wish the conversation had lasted much longer. Be thankful for what you have and maybe your worries/concerns aren't as bad as you may think. This made me focus on how fortunate/blessed and whatever else I may be.
