On the Road Day 1: Las Vegas

[Note: While traveling my daughter and I will experiment with using this journal to communicate TO Patti through her visitors. MS symptoms impair Patti’s ability to use a personal computer. It’s all part of the adaptations involved in ‘living with MS’ ]

Today was a LONG first day, departing from home at 3:30 AM Eastern Time and getting to bed at 2:30 AM Pacific Time !!

It was the critical first day and the completion of our daughter's 16th birthday present. She wanted to attend the opening of "We Will Rock You" a musical based on the music of Queen which opened this evening at Paris Las Vegas for a 10 yr contract.

"We Will Rock You" was AWESOME! Witty, irreverent, stunning costumes, sets, choreography and above all it most certainly ROCKS! Our tickets were FRONT ROW center section!

Additionally we got to witness a somewhat unusual thunderstorm in the dessert today. Anything to fill the time until show time. As someone who never has understood the fascination with gambling I will always be amazed at the thousands who sit and spend millions playing games they cannot win!!

Tomorrow the top comes down and we head off into the dessert for some driving down Rt. 66!
