    I was on the news yesterday!
    The building next to mine blew up - helicopters, they put up police tape everywhere (they let me move my car first)., CSI Vegas was there, the coroner's office.

    Seems it was a murder suicide. I was interviewed for the live updates... but was edited out for the 4, 5 and 6 o'clock newscasts - I guess because I was wearing my CrazyForBargains pajamas - er... loungepants.

    Here's a link to ABC news story

    http://www.ktnv.com/Global/story.asp...av=menu498_1_4

    and today's newspaper

    http://www.reviewjournal.com/lvrj_ho.../12493723.html

    Gets better...

    I go to the minimart to get drinks for the people who weren't allowed in their buildings... and a drunk driver in an SUV crashed thru the wall of the minimart - not the glass front - the cinderblock/cement wall!!!

    And I put my change in a slot machine... $290

    Gotta love Vegas!!

    Gee, always excitement in your life, Billy. How do you always end up in the right place (er, maybe not) all the time?

    Wow Billy, better stay indoors today, it sounds like someone called your number. Sorry you and your spiffy PJs didn't make it on the news though.

    Long ago I lived in a townhouse that was hit by a two-seater plane which then crash landed on the tennis courts behind the building. That was a freak show and a half (a news crew actually beat fire/rescue to the scene). Fortunately the injuries were minor and none of them were mine!

    "And I put my change in a slot machine... $290"

    Some folks would read this as a sign to "buy a bus ticket"

    Then I assume that you were also wearing your "lucky superman cape" with the PJ's

    Glad that you are safe.

    Damn, Billy!
    If I were in a lightning storm and was with you, I think I would stay close to ya...or should I keep a distance? Tough call.
    Sounds like you had an interesting day and even managed to turn it into a buck

    Actually, 'cause it was a crime scene... I couldn't get anywhere near it

    the driveway was roped off

    the buildings to the right and left...

    even the pool - right next to the building - was locked with a chain and padlock - do police have chains and padlocks in their cars???????

    and since I live in a gated community... and none of the news crew, coroners, etc know the gate code... there was gridlock all day at our entrance

    Buildings blowing up, people driving through block walls? You gotta find some new hangouts out BK. Happy to see that your "news" appearance wasn't part of an ABC predator report! Gotta wonder when you hear about a guy hanging out in strange pajamas.....

    Sounds a lot like my day (minus the murder, suicide, drunk driver, and slot machine).

    On the bright side, maybe people will stop emailing me with "Hey! I'm comin' to Vegas. Can you put me up for a few days?"

    and Connie... there's a Farmers Market at the park every Tuesday, and I know the Hot Dog vendor. I bought my box of AffiliateSumiit bootie over to them and said "pick something"... and one of 'em picked a Flamingo T-shirt!!!!!!!!!

    (Don't worry, I put one in my Keepsake Box, so my heirs can have it )

    One more instance that Billy comes through OK, but those around him......

    Glad you are ok, good thing I don't always watch the news!!!! I would have been a *little bit* worried!!!!

    I am starting to get the feeling that Billy is really some sort of secret agent because that is a lot of excitement in one day and I seem to recall other similar stories in his past. Alright, admit it Billy, are you really working for Interpol?

    Jeepers! Promise you won't move in next door. Two houses down is okay, but next door scares me a little.

    You didn't mention, did the slot machine right next to yours do something calamatous to the person playing it, like fall over and squash them...?
