Decision, Decisions...

So tonight I find out that one week after I have my Las Vegas trip planned that Don Rickles is playing at the Orleans the very next weekend. Rickles! I had planned on taking the slow road back, but now I'm thinking about bunkering down for a week and catching El Matador's performance. Don Rickles is a legend. The fact he's still performing and doing a full Vegas show is mindboggling. That he's still sharp as a tack and hasn't lost a beat is a miracle. He won't be with us forever and the window to see him perform live is closing fast.

Which brings us to my quandary.  Do I take the long way home and do a photo safari thru Utah and Colorado or do I buy a cheap room for a week and hang out living off tourist buffets in Vegas to watch the Rickles show?

Life is hard.

Dude, at all costs go see the Merchant Of Venom! God forbid- he could die the day after the show you missed.

No kidding, hockey puck - you gotta stay for that CPO Sharkey show!

Yeah, color me green...with envy.

If I'm not mistaken, Rickles is one of the two remaining celebrity friends of The Master - the other being Newhart.
