Leaving for Las Vegas ... I Hope

I just hit the magic 24-hour mark before my flight leaves for Las Vegas Sunday night. However, I have already gotten a warning from Southwest Airlines about the weather. Winter Storm Maya is moving toward the Midwest, possibly hampering my travel plans.
As things are, I am spending a Sunday doing a rarity: working. I have to log in some hours answering questions at an open house in the early afternoon. When I am done, I will head home, grab my suitcase, and head up the Interstate to Chicago.

My plans for the trip are still fluid. I plan on playing at Trooper Thursday at Westgate, hope to meet up with online friend ShadySteve while in town, and would like to grab a happy hour meal at Ruth's Chris and maybe do the Caesars Bacchanal Buffet or Wicked Spoon. Anyone care to join me? I've been watching my eating for the past week or two and drove my weight down a bit in hopes that I come back from Las Vegas without breaking my bathroom scale.

I was disappointed to see that Tony Bigcharles took off out of town last week before we could celebrate his birthday. We could have had quite a time: booze, hookers, blow, smokes ... okay, okay - maybe just country fried steak and mashed potatoes, u see ...

I made up my mind and stuck to my decision NOT to play at the Charitable Games outfit that was near town today. So far in 2019, I have been losing at their games but winning at the closest riverboat casino. I'll be interested to see how things go in Sin City.

If anyone wants to connect while I'm in town, leave a comment, message me on Twitter or text if you have my phone number.

Oh yeah - one last thing ... The woman who cut my hair for the past 20+ years retired last August. I had not gotten my hair cut for almost six months until I finally braved it last week. I posted the picture as my new profile picture and got a heck of a lot of comments and reactions. I am usually a guy who laughs a lot, smiles a lot, tells a lot of lame jokes (you know the type), but I actually just took the picture to show the haircut and the rarity of wearing a tie to work, which I just did for the heck of it since the shaggy hair was cut. Now really - do I look that mean in the picture?
Las Vegas - here I come. Thanks for reading!

"in hopes that I come back from Las Vegas without breaking my bathroom scale" haha

As for the haircut, I was running out of time to get a cut before Vday. Winged it and went to a place near work, pretty uncomfortable experience but I survived.

Well the haircut looks great but the sweater lacks academic flair????
