Cupid in Las Vegas

Mike (from Spain) sends in this picture this morning.  We saw this very guy Saturday night on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas. 


He, like a lot of other “characters” pose with visitors for tips.  When we passed him Bella just shook her head and just said, “No”.  I had to look very close at this picture to make sure we weren’t in the background.  It is bizarre enough that this guy’s photo made it to Spain.



B&P Vegas Gathering

Left to right:  Paul & Barb, Mr & Mrs (Another Scott), Jonco & Patco, Shannon & Cheryl (Bella), Sara & Anthony (ALN).  Missing: David Grant, Deborah & Elliot.

It’s pretty amazing to me that people from different ages, backgrounds and locations can gather together and meld so comfortably and sit for almost six hours just enjoying one another’s company.  All brought together by a silly little website.

We’re going to meet Saturday evening at the Freemont Street Experience on Saturday night.

Little Caeser’s Heping Hands

We’ve seen two shows; comedy at the Improv and Mac King’s Comedy and Magic show (excellent and cheaper than most) at Harrah’s.

We just ran into Bella in the casino (imagine that!) on our way back to our room before our gathering tonight.  More pictures later tonight or tomorrow morning.



Open Mic – Las Vegas Week

BP Vegas logo3This Open Mic post will be here until we return from or B&P Goes To Las Vegas trip on Tuesday evening.

There will be a few posts each day and I’ll try to post from Las Vegas a little, but don’t be expecting too much.  I’ll probably be adding comments here more than posting.

You can talk about anything you want here.  It’s your forum.  You’re in charge until I get back. 

Have a great week!
