Las Vegas Without Golf Clubs

I flew into Las Vegas yesterday afternoon for my nephew's wedding. It was 31 degrees and windy when I left home. The Las Vegas weather forecast is monotonous in a way that I can definitely handle: 79, 79, 79. (Hey, I'd take those as golf scores, too!)

I have something in common with South African pro Louis Oosthuizen: no golf clubs. Not because of the airlines, though.

I didn't bring my clubs because this weekend isn't about golf. I don't often see my family since we live on separate coasts, so it will be great to spend time together. Maybe I'll also catch a little March Madness and golf on the tube.

I may be sans clubs, but what I did bring (besides a dark suit for the wedding) is a pair of shorts, something I haven't worn for at least six months.

I hope you win some money for your special golf trips you have in store for 2008. ;-)

Thanks, Tom, but I'm only watching others gamble. It might not be as fun but it's much easier on my wallet.

Yeah, they don't call it Lost Wages for nothing. I don't gamble either. I'm not very lucky.

Hope you had a good time. Can't believe you didn't gamble while in Vegas.
