Thanks Sarah! The Bellagio was the prettiest I think.

Ohh, okay. The Bellagio is the nicest hotel i've ever been in. At $200 per night in the cheapest room, I only stayed 1 night. That was in early 2007.

I went to Vegas with a friend to see the National Rodeo Finals and The Jersey Boys. I think this was taken in the Bellagio. The last time I was in Vegas was around 1990 or so. I didn't like the new machines with paper only slots. Even though I never really played the slot machines I always liked the clanking of the coins into the buckets.Very few people at the cashier's cage. I would rather gamble in the stock market!
Cute picture, Mountain. I agree with Sarah, that is your color.

Ha

Yes, same here. The stakes are higher, and the game requires more patience.

Hey, for a frugal guy, you do splurge sometimes.

But the big question is if you ordered room service and ate it while lying in bed surfing the pay per view channels... Now that would be really splurging!

I did not. However, I did go to a buffet that cost ~$30. It had prime rib and other things that I NEVER eat. I also paid $18 for one small drink at a club. Not worth it.

You are wrong. There are some images that are even better (artistically) when out-of-focus or blurred. This is one of those. (The details don't compete with the emotion.)

You are skating on thin ice, Ron. "You look better out of focus," is probably one of those phrases that you should avoid saying to a woman.

Looks like the relationship is getting pretty... um... serious!

Nah, maybe it's just the frosty beverages talking.

I really like this picture. It shows joy, love and a playful attitude! Funny thing is, when I take my glasses off, it's more in focus.

Have a couple of glasses of wine, take off your glasses, and it will be in HD.

Some of my affluent neighbours. One of them even owns the bullfighting ring.... Donīt get me started as to how he became this wealthy. Typically new rich.
PS. I donīt like bullfighting. Here in Spain, Catalonia has recently banned this tradition. Other regions might be following suit. Most Spaniards donīt like it A lot of bullrings are closing down due to lack of spectators.

Another place to lounge around. This is where the Christmas tree was 30 minutes prior.
