By the time you are reading this I will be on the road to Vegas Baby! That's right, this gal is headed to the bright lights better known as Sin City!

I'm going with my brother, Gene. You remember him don't you? He is my Hero who had the major stroke about a year and 1/2 ago. He has come a long way since then, though still not back to his old normal self.

He can now walk with a cane but most of the time he is still in his wheelchair.

His wife is going to visit her parents in Ohio for a few days so he asked if I would stay with him while she was gone. Of course I said, yes.

He told me he didn't want to just stay home while I was there and had me check into some cruises. While there were several and the prices were great for last minute bookings, none had a handicap room open. So that plan when by the way side.

We then turned to plan B. It's always good to have a plan B. Our plan B happened to be Vegas!

Gene loves Vegas! So we rented a room at Paris and we will be there from today (Thurs) until Monday the 2nd of Nov.

Sure hope we win lots of money. Even if we don't I am sure we will have fun. I think we may take in a show or two while we are there.

This will be the first real trip Gene has been on since his stroke and I'm honored he feels comfortable enough to go alone with me.

I'll be sure to let you know all we did when I get home... MAYBE. After all, sometimes What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!

See you then!
