    I'm sorry for your loss. I'm glad he was the kind of guy to make you promise to go back and I'm glad you kept that promise.

    I am so happy to hear that you had a wonderful time and won some money too!!

    It's also great to hear that you will be able to visit again before the end of the year.

    Thank you for sharing your trip with us. I know you love and miss your husband and I admire your courage to fulfill a common dream that you both loved to do.

    Take care and God Bless.

    Great report. Good for you powering through a rough one. It will never be easy, but I hope it gets a little easier every time.

    Well, doubt I can go back that soon, was thinking more about Feb, when the weather is starting to warm in Vegas, and to get away from the cold dreary ky winter.
    Are you guys going again?

    I loved meeting up with you guys and would like to again though!

    That was for Penny! Sorry, and thanks every one!

    I did want to warn newbys to downtown, there are two stratigically placed spots to be aware of, that the cosmetic husslers are. Both ends of Fremont now. One girl took my hand and kept talking while she put cream on. I talked over her and told her I was on my way to meet someone and No. She continued and actually started dabbing it around my eye! I got so mad I told her I did not give you permission to touch me and I said NO!!!! Everyone around me heard this and one lady said,' You go girl, they are a nuissance!"

    Just caught back up to this. What a great finish gambling wise! If I made it to downtown, I would have said hi, but never got there. Boo. :(
