Vegas, baby.

The timing, perhaps, could have been a little bit better—we’re missing our class reunion (bummer) and a killer cat blogger gathering in San Francisco to cheer on Jeter’s Mom as she does the Susan G. Komen 3 Day/60 mile walk for breast cancer (MAJOR bummer…I really wanted to go to this)—but we’re headed for Vegas on Thursday. I have a meeting with a potential Inkblot Books client, but we’re weaving a vacation around it because, HEY, it’s VEGAS!

The Boy is going to house and cat sit for us, which will thrill Max and Buddah because he’s bringing The World’s Bounciest Dog™, Butters. In the four days we’ll be gone the cats will either get over having a dog in the house, they’ll figure out how to dig their way out, or they’ll spend the entire time hiding under a bed. There will be a gate across the hallway to give them Butters-free space, but I suspect the Boy may not actually see them while we’re gone.

We’re not renting a car for this trip, so we’ll stick to the strip and do the typical tourist-trap things, but I know we’re not going to have enough time to do and see everything we want to…so truly, we’ll have to go back next year. Perhaps for the Boy’s birthday. Perhaps take him with us.

I wonder if Max and Buddah would like to play slots…

I'll try not to envy you. I have always wanted to go there, and have never gotten that privilege. Everyone else in the family has been except me!

I think Butters looks like a nice dog, and I bet Buddah will be playing with him after a couple of days. Hope you have fun!

Play slots in Max & Buddah's just may bring good luck!
Hope all goes well, at home & away!

Going to Vegas is one of those things *everybody* must do before they die--even me, & I don't gamble!

I'm sure Max & Buddah will survive the Woofy invasion just fine, although I wouldn't place any bets (har har) on their becoming great friends with the cute & bouncy Butters. :)

I've been to Vegas once, for a 4-day flute convention in 2003. There will be another there in 3 years.

I only allotted one roll of quarters to play slots and poker at a bar.

I bought some soft stuffed bears in a shop at the Caesar's Palace mall. Can't remember the name of the shop, but they had a lot of animal things -- T-shirts, soft animals, etc. It may have been a Discovery or National Geographic kind of store.

Are you kidding? Max would TOTALLY take over Vegas!

Hehehe...Your last line reminds me of this (first strip in storyline, keep reading forward a few for the full story):

From what Max said, I doubt yur headed to Vegas. Mom says we kitteh would proly like "rule-it" better than slots cuz ders a ball to chase round in circles.
Get all the way better soon, kay?
