Las Vegas Time...

Retirement is like a long vacation in Las Vegas. The goal is to enjoy it the fullest, 
but not so fully that you run out of money...

Today is our last day in Las Vegas.  We have been here since Sunday and I have to say that I 
have walked every part of the the Strip.  So far it has been a really good time, but we will
 sure be happy also to be going back home.  I really miss Brutus and we really are tired
 of eating out.  Neither Arvid nor I are crazy about eating out for so many days and the
 worst is that we both HATE to eat breakfast out.  For us breakfast is best at home. 

These last three day I have had most of the day to myself and to do whatever it is I want, 
while Arvid is busy with his trading.  He is in his element and we both are having fun 
doing exactly what we want.  Yesterday I visited the hard Rock Cafe, The Coca
Cola Shop, the M&M's factory and the Mandalay Bay hotel and Casino.

No matter where you go there are hundreds of people, but I was very surprised when I saw 
twice the amount of people in the M&M's shop.  Hundreds of people buying M&M's and 
all kinds of merchandise.  Got me all caught up in the moment as well, so had 
to make a few purchases as well.  Did not want to feel left out.

As Arvid spends the days in his trade meetings, I took the bus yesterday and toured the
 entire Strip, again.  There is just so much to see and do.  I also walked for hours these 
last few days.  Best way to see everything.  Being on my own I was able to linger 
for as long as I wanted and wherever I wanted.  Was good to not have to rush.
I was able to see everything I wanted and at my own pace.  Very relaxing.

Today will visit the Forum Shops, a little indoor exploring today.  Last night we
were entertained Jimmy Buffet style.  Music, girls dancing was fun.

I'm missing Brutus so really looking forward to tomorrow when we will be home with him.
 Wendy his pet sitter sends us a picture everyday.  Make me miss him more.

Yesterday I also visited The Shark Reef at the Mandalay Bay.  The most impressive
creature there was the Komodo Dragon, and when in Vegas you just
have to try the Buffet.   Food galore.  We did it enough said.

Well my day begins.  Last day so have to make the most of it.
Greeting to all from Sin City, Las Vegas.  You know what they say:
Everything and anything you want to do, you can do in Las Vegas.

I love Las Vegas. I like that Las Vegas has everything. 
Everything and anything you want to do, you can do in Las Vegas..
