    Been awhile right? This week was crazy busy. I feel like this was not one of my better TR's and for that I apologize. I have not gone back to read hardly any of it and I am not even sure where things left off. I will start with a JR update then go back to read some of this bad boy and catch up. I might have a story or two left on the table. It was also a pretty rough losing trip and that always leaves a slight negative in your mouth. Despite that, I did look half seriously at going back to Vegas after work on Friday and coming back home today but the flights were just too high. A direct flight out of Calgary was $1100 return and a flight out of Great Falls with connector in Salt Lake was still going to be about $7-750 after the dust settles. So while that price might be good if you're flying in from England, that is a terrible price around these parts. I had @vegasmacker looking up flights with me and sending me prices. He was either being a very good friend or a very bad enabler.

    We got back home and JR literally had ice, a cold drink, a wet cloth, an ice cream sandwich etc as soon as we got off the plane to freeze the side of her mouth. She was in real pain. We got home and she feel asleep with a frozen compress on her head and kept getting up all night to reapply and get a fresh frozen one.

    Well she squeezed into the dentist the next day, got Xrays and couldn't figure it out. So the doctor managed to squeeze her into a specialist the next day. Pretty lucky. Now we had a bit of a time crunch here for her to get better. It wasn't enough to get a Vegas trip in, she had to get a Mexico trip in as of Thursday (which is taking pace now but was only three days away from the day we landed) so she needed to get better or she wasn't going anywhere.

    So the specialist gave her a shot and some antibiotics and did a root canal at 6:30 pm on Wednesday night and at 8:00 the next morning JR was off to Arizona to meet her best friends in the world, some of which she hadn't seen in years, and they then drove to Mexico. It is one of what I suspect will be many stagette parties. And let me say it is FABULOUS to have work cover off all your health and dental insurance because I don't even wanna know what the out of pocket would have been on that! Everyone in Canada gets medical but you gotta pay for dental and up in Canada....a lot of dentists make more money than doctor's.

    She has friends that live in Tucson and a few carloads of ladies drove to Rocky Point in Puerto Penasco. Did I get that right? Anyways, it looks kind of fun and apparently it is an annual trip the ladies take but JR has missed the last few years. Not this time...... I'll put up a few pics and get this trip wrapped up today.

    The last I heard from JR was breakfast on the beach, mimisoa's and dolphins frolicking in the water.

    And does anyone thing Gaggles deserves a Vegas Bachelor Party since JR got to go to Mexico for the weekend with her friends???

    Being a Phoenician Puerto Penasco is my favorite place to vacation behind Vegas of course. It’s our little Mexican hidden gem that no one knows about. I go four times a year.

    Funny story. We surprised JR with her Maid of Honour arriving Friday instead of Sunday. This made for a happy JR.

    Now the MOH was meeting us in Vegas with a new male friend. All of us met up and went to the pool on the Friday. He was a decent guy but a little quiet and laid back, Although our crew can be a bit overwhelming. We proceeded down to the pool and of course hit it up hard. He chose not to partake which again is fine. But JR and the MOH, as well as myself of course, hit this town pretty hard. After the day drunk we were all meeting at Hell's Kitchen, which by the way, was awesome! After a nice dinner we went to meet @VegasBJ at the MGM for some craps.

    We had a few decent rolls at the table but nothing big to report. MOH and her new companion did not join us for craps and went their own way. JR held her own at the craps tables on her rolls but eventually we all parted ways and we went back to the Flamingo. We are not sure where MOH and her new man went.

    Flash forward to next morning. MOH has advised that she is parting ways with her new guy and asking to say with us for the rest of the weekend. Just like that. Of course we say yes. Th two just weren't meshing and he was a nice polite guy but no way was he gonna keep up and the MOH was feeling a bit dragged down. To make matters worse he had a pair of shoes in our room that he needed to get. Despite their parting of ways he insisted on driving the MOH to our room and he grabbed is shoes and said goodbye. Again, very nice guy but not the guy for the MOH. And because we were in Vegas....shouldn't you always fold a losing hand???

    So they parted ways.

    Now let me see what else I have missed???
