Leaving the Frontier on Monday morning, our last day in Vegas. We checked out
of the hotel, and loaded up everything into the rental car (which fortunately
had a very spacious trunk, because we also had the Bakers and their luggage with

Emporium, but goes outside, around, and above the hotel, street, and parking

Ron and Hillary Maxwell gave us their son's Brad Majors costume, which no longer
fit William. Richard looks a little bit like that scary Six Flags guy...
Richard attending Rocky Horror in the Brad costume the very next weekend,
in Cleveland, Ohio. With Q and Richard is Kevin Boycik, who was unable to
attend Cirque Du Rockeil; and so, we had to bring Richard out to Ohio to
