    It Feels like 10 years ago I was saying Happy New Years!...2020.
    Can you believe this Crazy year? There’s been so many unprecedented news in the past 6 months, I can’t even Remember what I did for New Years? How Times have changed so fast! The year started out with Kobe’s death, thinking this is as bad as it’ll get, then the spread of The corona virus topped it, then the shut down of March madness!!! Then all of sports shut down!, then Vegas and the entire world locked down in quarantine, now the protesting, riots, and looting erupting everywhere, Man! Oh man! What can top this? I’m not a pessimist, but will 2020 hurry up and finish...but, to answer my own question, my wish is that on June 4th, Vegas will be back to normal with millions of tourist having a great time! I’m looking forward to seeing pictures of the casinos back in business. Hoping for the best grand reopening of Vegas, we all need this!

    East Coast is already getting ready for Hurricane Season. Supposedly it is going to be a VERY ACTIVE season. Yesterday went out and bought a generator and my wife is already stocking on canned goods. Hope for the best, Prepare for the worst. Being from South Florida Hurricanes are a HUGE threat to us.

    I'm in @roycpa's camp. I would like to add that I hope this is a lesson learned but am enough of a realist to realize that that part is a pipe dream.

    I look forward to physically reconnecting with our friends and family. That might just be #1 on my list.

    Onboard with roycpa and ken2v. I weigh what is (and will be) most important in my life: family, friends, life without borders or restraints, uncovered smiles and laughter.

    And peace / healing for our world.

    I'll echo what everyone else said, and add no major 2nd wave of COVID-19. Since we are wishing I'll throw in a few small selfish requests for myself too:

    Being able to attend college football games this fall.
    No disruptions to the 2020-2021 ski season... and a ton of snow starting in November straight through the April 2021.

    First and foremost good health and safety for all. :love:

    A cure or eradication of Covid-19 this year (wish big) :D

    Take our grandsons to Gettysburg before the end of the year as we’ve been promising them for a year now, my husband is a history/civil war buff who can enhance their experience. :cool:

    And selfishly, my return to Vegas. :woohoo:

    If an asteroid was about to impact, I think I'd die laughing before it happened! Adding to the pandemic keeping me from Vegas, the gym, dating, and nearly everything else, I just learned that my favorite watering hole that's been around 30 years and within walking distance permanently closed! Not that I'm going to any bar right now, but I had hopes of returning when safe to do so.

    Best wishes for the next 6 months definitely include a vaccine and restoration of normalcy in Vegas … and the rest of the country.

    I wish the following:

    a vaccine, a true economic recovery for the working stiffs like us, a vegas alive and bustling, no more resort fees,
    lower table limits, more jackpots and handpays, a HUGE HUGE VMB group meet up.
    Last but not least, I go on another 40 roll heater at a craps table and full press and double up everytime while my little rosy is dancing to a live band .

    one day we will high roll enough to be at wynn, cosmo or aria sky suites.

    2020 has been a LONG decade, and it's only five months old. I just hope everything and everyone can just calm down a lot. Not to trivialize things, but we have a saying in the Ozarks: "Everything will come out in the warsh (not wash)." Another way of saying this too shall pass.

    I hope the passing happens as quickly as possible.

    I hate to be that guy, but wishes and fantasies aren’t the same. It would take more than a miracle to get rid of resort fees. I hate them as much as the next guy, but they aren’t going anywhere. It took a global pandemic to temporarily get rid of paid parking.

    I'm just hoping that Cornelius and Zira take a liking to me when we enter the Planet Of The Apes phase of 2020.

    I hope we get back in the groove as a society and kick butt with another great economy so we can all prosper for 2021. And...if there is no March Madness in 2021, all hope will be lost! Yep, that is my metric of the US recovery! Shallow? Perhaps....but this is a Vegas board, and that is what makes Vegas special for me.

    Just cleaned politics out of this thread. Shame on the people who replied to complain or "joke", but didn't report it so a moderator could remove it. :nono:

    This community is what you make it. If you all decide it's more fun to crap all over it, rather than work with me to fix it, I'm wasting my time and energy here.

    My wish is for @Gus to expand his heater from 40 to 400 rolls and for me to be standing one spot to the left of him when he does it.
