My Vegas trip in pictures

Just kidding - there was no Rabbi Elvis for us while we were there.

The most important part of my trip was visiting with my grandmother and driving her to the cemetary to see my step-father Z"L. I could not have asked for a more beautiful day for this visit. The weather was perfect.

I had almost forgot how beautiful Nevada was. And it still amazes me that I can see this at the same place I can see all of this:

The Strip at night

Fountains at the Fall of Atlantis - Caesars Palace

Outside Caesars Palace

Outside the Paris Hotel

We got comps for the Carrot Top show. I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this but he was very funny. It just so happened we were there on his birthday so they had a birthday celebration for him just as the show was over complete with birthday guests Louie Anderson and Robin Leach.

It was a nice trip but I am glad to be home, despite the fact that I brought home a horrible cold and I have to start baking hamentaschen!

I'm glad you had a good time at Carrot Top's show- he never struck me as being funny, but if you say he was, he must have been. WEcome back home and get well soon.

Carrot Top just reminds me way too much of my hair during a "growing out" phase :)

Nice pictures, and I'm glad you had fun. We're all sniffly over here - sorry if you caught it from us!

Carrot Top is one of those guilty pleasures no seems to feel comfortable admitting they enjoy. I love Carrot Top! His real name is Scott Thompson BTW.
