Bloggers trippin'

Where to begin? I was so happy to see the others waiting for me at the airport. Sunny was in about the same spot where I saw her for the very first time nearly four years ago. There were hugs all around then off to the hotel.

I wish I could give you hair raising stories like the adventures of Cassie, Sue and Annie – but this was real life instead and we just had fun, with no arrests, no visits to the drunk tank, no prostitution license. But still fun!

The movies first – 50 Shades Darker, I liked it. Jamie Dornan seems to have grown into his role as Christian Grey and did a much better job this time. Now as far as spanking goes, there was very little in this movie. Basically, it was a very well done, 90% vanilla, dirty movie with a story. I’d recommend it and I thank God Mollie did not go into acting. I hope Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson simply support their daughter in her career choice and DO NOT see this movie, not one for the parents of the leading lady.



I agree with Sunny that LaLa Land was not that good. I realize all the awards and nominations it’s racking up, I just didn’t like it myself. When we saw it, there were only about ten people in the theater and three got up and left before it was over. Truly the hysterics in the elevator were the highlight of the movie evening for me! (If you’ve missed this part read here.) I also did something on this trip I hadn't done since I was about thirteen - I lied about my age to get into a movie for a cheaper price. You had to be sixty-two to get in for the senior price. I'm only sixty, but the guy didn't questions me for a minute, sigh...

I fulfilled a lifetime dream on this trip – I got to see Cher in concert! And I loved every minute of it! How can she possible be seventy years old? She didn’t dance and kick up her heels as much as when she was younger, but boy she can still sing! Sunny and Ella are not the Cher fans I am but Sunny did go along with me and that made it so much more fun than if I’d gone alone. It was a very special night for me.



The next day Ella and I struck out on our own while Sunny met up with a friend living close by. We did a little shopping and then to a wonderful gospel show. It was a brunch and the food was out of this world! The singing was super too, but nothing topped seeing Ella on her feet swaying and dancing with the best of them. A truly great day.



The other two things that occupied much of our time was eating and gambling. We had some fine meals and I can tell you right now if I don’t get the weight back to where it’s supposed to be quickly my ass is going to pay big time for the joy of eating those great meals. I did an hour of cardio yesterday and I plan to today so I hope to make my goal by the twenty-eighth.




As for the gambling – I won! I only risked about thirty dollars and won around one hundred and fifty! There was this one machine that seemed to like me. And by winning, I mean I was able to stop and bring it home with me, that's true winning.




The last day we just chilled, it was even sunny enough to be around the pool for a little while. I really enjoyed being with these two wonderful friends. More trips in the future? Who knows, I hope so. This one was definitely in the winner’s column.

An excellent travel report here, PK. My seal of approval. Just being with you and Sunny Girl was enough to make the trip special. Did enjoy 50 Shades Darker and thought it was better than the first. Not enough spanking to suit me. PK's books are better.

The Gospel Brunch at the House of Blues is always my favorite in Vegas. Since I jump up to dance and do my "Amens" I feel I worked off a little of how much I feasted. The rest of the food consumed on this trip needs to be addressed pronto.

Hugs From Ella

I've been a Cher fan for nearly fifty years and I was so happy to see her.

 
At 10:49 PM, Blogger PK said...

Her show was dazzling, but I would have been just as happy if she had sat on a stool and just sung for us.

 
At 10:49 PM, Blogger PK said...

We did our best!

 
At 10:52 PM, Blogger PK said...

You may have worked off a pound or so. I love seeing you so into it!

 
At 10:53 PM, Blogger PK said...

I think Ella could have danced on the table, no one would have minded!

 
At 10:53 PM, Blogger PK said...

It was a great time.

 
At 10:54 PM, Blogger PK said...

Cher was the icing for sure!

 
At 10:55 PM, Blogger PK said...

We do enjoy being together.

 
At 10:55 PM, Blogger PK said...

Hang on to that money, they'll be another trip sometime.

Memories are important.
