Following my husband's death in 2008, I moved from Tennessee to Florida to look after my parents. Now I'm living in a retirement community, making friends and trying new things. The most fun I've had has been ballroom dancing. So far, I've taken intro lessons in all the dances and now I'm starting intermediate. I hardly have time to read anymore but I manage four or five dances a week!

We stayed at the Stratosphere which was nice enough but it was at the far end of the Strip - too far for me to walk, even at night, although it didn't seem to faze the younger generation. Geez, it didn't cool down at all at night like it does here in Florida. Every time we took a taxi somewhere it cost $20. That adds up quickly.
So now I can say I've been to Vegas. Oh, and yes, I did gamble a little. Den talked me into it. I played the penny and nickel poker machines and in the end came out ahead by $2.40.
