My last blog was about my fear of flying. Well, I survived both legs of the journey with very little anxiety. The first leg from Nashville to Vegas was aided by some wine before take-off and Jim so kindly distracting me with a discussion about roller coasters we had ridden this past summer. Wait, I will ride a roller coaster, but I have anxiety about flying? Well, see, the roller coaster is also about fear and anxiety, but it's over quicker and I am somewhat connected to the ground through the ride, correct? Yes, but if that ride throws a bolt, you are REALLY gonna be dead meat if the coaster flies off the tracks and goes sailing through the air. Yes, the logic behind my fears of flying and roller-coasters seem to be "off", huh? The wonders of the mind never cease.
So Las Vegas was fun, even though I had a nasty sinus thing going on in my ears and throat. I basically ate, drank, slept, and went to a couple of shows. Mostly slept and rested. I wish that I had felt better because the weather was GORGEOUS! 70s and sunny in the daytime...cool and 40-ish in the evening. We had the Sunday Brunch at Bally's again. It's pricey, but SOOO worth it. Champagne (good champangne, not cheap stuff), prime rib, lobster, lamb chops, breakfast foods, fresh fish, sushi, fresh fruit, and pretty much anything you can imagine...plus a formal wait-staff that takes care of your every need.
The shows we saw were "The Legends" which was the one where people imitate famous singers. It was really good. We saw impersonations of Elton John, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Elvis, Michael Jackson, and Aretha Franklin. I'd go see that show agan! Monday night, we saw Penn and Teller. The child in me is still in awe about their tricks, while the adult in me wants to go back again and again to see if I can figure them out! :) Definitely want to take Benajmin to see this show at some point.
Next week, we're headed to Biloxi, MS...a short 8 hour drive from Ridgetop, TN to spend Thanksgiving with the parents! Looking forward to this trip too.
