I don't know where to start, Friday Night was alright, however, my son in law and daughter showed up late.
Friday was fine, the drive was fine, then Saturday morning after I went shopping at Wal Mar and Harbor Tools, I receive a phone call from my daughter at 11:00 am, she broke down right in front of the that Paris Hotel, in Her Honda Odyssey: the back brakes are a drums, the holding clip came off and busted a few springs in the wheel, the wheel, lock up. Now people, this was at 11 am. I was on the way back to Circus Circus to get clean up for my son's wedding. So instead I drove to where she broke down. 20 minutes later, I got there and saw she had one lane block. next thing I do is direct traffic on S Las Vegas Blvd for the next 15 minutes waiting for Triple AAA to show up.
When they did, we had her van towed to a AAA repair station. Now, it's 12:15 PM, remember the wedding is at 1 PM, My car which is a Honda Accord, only holds five people, I had to make a quick dissension, let her take my car and her family to the wedding and stay behind. She , my son-in-law, my granddaughter, and my step granddaughter and her stuff for the baby filled up my car. So I stayed behind and let them go.
2 hours later, the car was fixed and I was an 100 dollars poorer, so I drove her car to the reception, now people, I have not cleaned up, when I got there, everyone was in their suites and I was dressed like going to the race track.
I stayed there for an hour and before I knew it, it was 4 PM, I was supposed to meet Kermit in N Las Vegas no later then 2 PM, all I wanted was to see my son get married and go to the sports book.
However, there is a great side to this miss, I still can meet Kermit in 3weeks for Super-ball weekend and thank god the car didn't break down on the freeway
End of story,

Were any of the guests wearing Armani Suites?
I don't know, I have not worn formal cloths in 20 years.
All I can tell you is this, my son is a school teacher, all people were from the school system, teacher and administrators.
Wow..tough trip, Lester. Sorry to hear you didn't have fun at the Big B.
As an aside, I wonder if anyone took a video of you directing traffic on the L.V. Strip?
That might show up on Youtube..
