      Thanks so much for your sweet response, Corrine. LIght bulb:let’s meet for a drink in Las Vegas when you next pass through:) MY style tends much more to thrift shops and bargains. I thought of you when I posted the photo of me on the escalator: if you look carefully, you’ll see a face on my teeshirt.

    I’m just catching up on your posts, Gerda. So wonderful, sad, and comic, all at the same time.

    Lovely essay, Gerda. I’ve never liked Las Vegas except for the people-watching — but you’ve made me appreciate it more, if only for the perspective it provides. And your car-trip memories took me back to my own family’s un-air-conditioned 1970s sojourns . . . .

    All best from Chicago.

      Thanks so much for you kind comment, Keir. I guess we are firmly in the un-airconditioned generation. All the best to you and your family.
