Captain’s Log 4,446
Back from the Sin City of Lost Wages. We had a bang-up time! It was too frickin’ hot so we stayed inside the entire time. Don’t give me that crap about “dry heat.”
The concert was the highlight of the trip. Big Sister Mia also scored some free tickets to see Jersey Boys. We did that Thursday night. Fabulous show! Absolutely! What’s not to like?
Full cast. Truly amazing!
We ate at a really neat place Friday night – KGB Burgers. I have no idea what the name is supposed to mean, but the burgers were astounding! Sometimes, veggie burgers can be so dense they seem like mud. Not here. These were the GOOD ones – made by Morningstar Farms. I could tell. I love how they present the French fries. Everybody in Vegas gets French fries serves in cones. Cones in stands.
Would you like a cone of fries with that?
We took the monorail over to the MGM to see Neil Diamond on Saturday night. It’s a great ride but the system is bankrupt. I can see why. Charging people $5 EACH WAY to use it does not make it user-friendly.
Expensive train ride through the heart of the Las Vegas strip.
But the whole reason we went was to see Neil Diamond! He’s still got what it takes!
Big Sister Mia was already nervous at 10:00 in the morning! She wanted to make sure we got there on time, so we left just after 6:00. The train ride took all of five minutes – and there we were!
This says it all. She was so happy!
My mild-mannered sister gets a bit wound up at these events.
Back home now, and after a 2-hour nap, I feel refreshed and ready to tackle the world. Well…..maybe not the whole world.
