Still waiting for a response.

Ten days have passed since my last blog, and I was waiting to hear from the contractor. Well, he e-mailed me to tell me he has received the plans and now must look them over, after which he will give us an aprox. cost to build per square foot. So, we are still waiting.

So while we were waiting, we went to Vegas!!!! Why wait at home? Mischelle was invited to a slot tournament and the rooms were comp'd for 5 days. Although Mischelle didn't do that great at the tournament, she did pretty good at the video poker machines. I played some blackjack and a little Texas Hold'em.

I' m sure not as young as I use to be. Those late nights take their toll. You lose track of time in the casinos, and they keep the inside so bright. We saw a few of the tourist spots, shuffled between casinos and generally had a good time.

With the drive just a little over 4 1/2 hours, we took the Avalanche truck because the gas is fairly cheap ( $1.99 gal.) and flying takes just as long with all of the security, getting to the airport, etc., and that's with no delays.

Eventually you will get used to Island time. You will either be laid back or mental. Good luck with your slice of paradise
