Vegas, Baby! 4

This is the third Dick's Butts ashtray I've bought in Vegas over the past few years. The previous two each met their death while falling off our toilet tank. This one will be kept in a much safer place. No, I don't smoke but the immature side of me thinks Dick's Butts is hilllllllarious.

On Friday night, we hopped over to my least favorite casino, Circus Circus, to have a late night drink at the Carousel Bar made famous by Hunter S. Thompson in "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas." Fans of the author may recall the "scene" where he and the 400-lb. Samoan sat at this very spot and tripped their already drug-addled brains out.

Circus Circus is the only casino in Las Vegas where you can still trip over children at 1 AM. Although, I do enjoy their free circus acts. To this day, I have still not laughed as hard as I did when I saw two poodles get married. The look on the canine groom's face was priceless.

Two more shows tonight, bringing the total to 14. Tomorrow we head to Phoenix to spend the week with my dad.

A week in Phoenix in August? Crazy! Altho it has been cooler in Yuma. No more than 110 the last week.

Oh, it's hot. Vegas seemed downright chilly in comparison.
