Sin City Tales

I’m sorry for being MIA the last few days. The bad news is that I was offline. The good news is that I was in Las Vegas.
You know, I’ve been to Vegas 15+ times and it never gets old. Although I’m not silly about it, I am one of the few people you’ll meet who actually knows how to gamble. And usually I win – I say “usually” because in Vegas, there’s always the chance that you’ll get your clock cleaned. My game of choice – craps – the absolute best odds if you know what you’re doing.
But the real reason I go to Vegas – the people watching. There’s never a shortage of strange people there, so I’ll definitely have a few posts about my trip. But I’m going to start off with a few cell phone pictures.
This one I took from the top of the Rio. They said this was the 50th floor, and although I’m not sure about that, it was still pretty high up. Not the greatest picture ever taken, but a nice reminder of what Vegas has to offer.
I’m not a huge fan of “Downtown” Las Vegas. It’s OK and I guess everyone has to visit the Golden Nugget at least once. But I don’t go out of my way to head down there. However, we ended up there and I took the below-picture of a Gallagher “wanna-be.” This guy REALLY looks like the comedian, Gallagher. But his hammer spelled it as “Galliger.” LOL.
My wife and I always have a contest in Vegas. We try to identify the women who are just beautiful vs. the strippers (when saying it, my wife always insists on spelling it out – S T R I P P E R) vs. the prostitutes. I took this picture in the Paris. Can you guess which category they fall into?
