One thing about Vegas is that there are always planes coming and going so I am in my glory watching them. I always say that they come in heavy (with money) and leave light (broke). A really conservative estimate of spending in Vegas for a 4 day weekend would be $1000.00 per person, so for every flight leaving, they are leaving behind approximately $200,000.00. Wow!!!
Speaking of jets, today is the day that Julie will arrive on a jet plane. Julie is Pat and Harolds daughter who lives in Canada and teaches school. This week is spring break for them so she decided to come hang with her mom and dad and us old fogies for a few days. We will enjoy having her around to liven it up a bit.
After dark Ed and Lessie loaded in the Jeep with us and we went to look at the lights of Vegas from Vegas North. Coming into Vegas that way you get to look down on the Strip and Fremont street which is really neat.
When we got that far we decided we may as well drive through Freemont Street and down the Strip on our way home. This is the first time Ed and Lessie have been to Vegas so it was mind boggling for them to see the lights and action of Vegas.
Today I finished the book I have been reading for the last while. I have to pick another one to read so will be choosing between these 2. What do you thing? Now you have to realize that Fall from Grace will take me about 2-3 months to read, while Message in a Bottle will only take 1 month. I am a very slow reader because I only read in bed, so after a couple pages the eyes generally go closed. I think I will start with Message in a Bottle. If you think I have made a mistake, let me know because I will only have read a couple pages by then.
