Kelly & Margaret took an early trip celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary to Las Vegas. While in Vegas, the couple took in some shows, saw the sites, and even (go figure) gambled a little. They went to the Improv Theatre in Harrahs where they saw a great show, headlined by Last Comic Standing finalist Rocky Laport. They also had row 2 seats for the Cirque du Soleil version of the Beatles "Love" at the Mirage which was awesome. They also took in the Bee Gees tribute band at the Excaliber. While checking out the sites of Sin City, they went on the largest Ferris Wheel in the world called "The High Roller" where they had a great nighttime view of the city. The couple had a great time, and Margaret even won some money.

I suppose you could get mixed up as well. lol! I totally enjoyed that photo of you and me in the last issue. So many of my friends commented on it. I do think of you and your famiy and pray for all of you. And your mom still has that wonderful smile. Hugs to all of your family and the rest of the McCarty family - Love, Kitty
