The Strip

Star Trek

Well, what do you know, Nellis Airforce Base is only 8 miles from Las Vegas. Granny made me take her to the casinos. Granny won $140 at the Palms casino. We saw Elvis and Marilyn Monroe on the strip. I did manage to get a pair of tickets for a sold out Cirque Du Soliel show at the Belagio last night. The show is called "O", and is performed on a stage that becomes a pool of water, so it was the usual high flying acts, contortionist and clowns, but with the added bonus of swimmers, high divers and fire eaters. The tickets I got just happened to be front row, dead center. We had a great view and every thing was super until the last clown act. I got pulled up on stage to dance with one of the clowns. Granny laughed until she cried. I hope she enjoyed it. We went to the Excaliber for the breakfast buffet, then to MGM Grand, New York, New York and finally to the Hilton. They have the Star Trek Experience there. I had a lot of fun, but Granny did not know the back story for the Borg Invasion ride, but she liked it anyway. We will be going to the Stratosphere tonight. There is a rollercoaster on top of the tower that I want to see, don't know if I will ride it. I am trying to get Granny on the Manhatten Express rollercoaster at New York, New York.
