And One More For the Road

Man, you know you are an American icon when your face is painted on the side of a Las Vegas hotel!

Checked to see what the tickets would be…

$180.

Um, while I’ve seen Barry Manilow at least 8 times between 1976 and 1979, no way was I going to pay that much money.

I would have paid it, however, for Tony Bennett. I’d have paid even more.

I would have taken out a second mortgage, if I’d have had to.

But he was only there on Friday and Saturday.

I missed it.

**************

This was totally cool!

It’s just a bar in the Vegas airport, but it’s a Budweiser bar!

Meaning lots of Kasey Kahne all over the place!

No, I didn’t stop for a drink.

But…what a great place to watch a race (next to the NASCAR cafe, of course!).

**********

Tomorrow at 0600, my nursing cap goes back on as I travel to the ENA conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Actually, I’m going as “media”, because I’m a blogger.

I better put on my “journalist” hat, too!

Just as being around a group of bloggers is inspiring, it is no different when a thousand ER nurses get together.

It’s electric!

I expect I’ll have plenty to blog about for quite awhile after this trip!

As for now, I have, literally, hours of homework and reading to catch up on!

Must. Turn. Off. Computer.

In a minute…..

    Ah, but if it was Tony Bennett & K.D. Lange? Be still my heart.*

    *If you haven’t heard the album they recorded together — you must!

    Kim,

    Please tell the leaders of the ENA you support establishing an Office of the National Nurse. It is time for prevention… health care, NOT sick care.

    Thanks!!
