Bible Verse of the Day

Hello Blog Fans!

We just returned home from taking the newly 21-year-old son to Las Vegas for his birthday. No more Chuck E. Cheese! His little brother made the mistake of telling the sound guy at church about the birthday party and now everyone at Cowboys, where they both work, know all about it and rag him about it. Big brother wasn't too happy.

Any way, I discovered that I haven't lost anything in Las Vegas (except a lot of money) and it's not a fun place to be anymore. It's expensive and it's not family friendly anymore. The place is a lot more upscale than it used to be, but it's sleazier than ever, if could get that way. Every show (or so it seems) has topless women, there are adult emporiums (emporia?) all over the place. And the flyers for the "girl" places show topless women now.
And the people that hand them out are just gross!

DS#1 had a great time, though. He got to gamble, playing blackjack and keno. He learned about how hard it is to push away from the table when you're ahead. I know that the whole time we were there, I just was not comfortable like I used to be. Perhaps it's because I'm not in that place anymore in mind and spirit.
This was a sight I was happy to see.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt this way about Vegas! I was so shocked! It's really sad how bad it's gotten. Hopefully what happens in Vegas will STAY in Vegas! :) Glad to have you home again!
