Rough day

Worst St. Patrick's day ever.

Nothing to do with Beer.

Tuck Guinea Pig died this morning at the vet office.
I found her with very goobery eyes at 5am and called as soon as they were open.
Tom stayed home and took 3 guineas to the vet's.
She made it to the office and got a look over and the vet said she was in bad shape.
He then looked at Winslow and Sammie - as I was worried they might also be sick. As everyone lives in the same cage.
When they went to get Tuck back out of her carrier, they found her dead.

Dr. G is going to see if he can figure out anything. We want to make sure it wasn't horrible contagious. If I need to I'll get antibiotics for everyone tomorrow. I feel terrible. We have only had her for a little over 2 months.
I am worried for my other piggies.

Hope you had a better holiday. Maybe I'll go look for a beer.

We return and work is kicking my butt.
Tom reminded me that I haven't put up any vegas pictures yet.
So, here is the link to the batch.

Firemen for Hillary.
Shots from the Eifell tower, very cool view.
The contruction tunnel we had to walk through too much.
Our favorite casino's and the Spice Buffet, still one of the best on the strip and only $28.
We took a trip to the old part of town and took pictures and gambled. I found my favorite game Flip-Flop at the Fiztgerald casino and saw a piece of the Blarney stone. They claim it is real, I'm not so certain.
Yeah, I should have taken a picture of that.

Yes, I did take a bunch of pictures from the bus. The double decker that takes you from the strip to downtown and to the shopping mall. Must remember to get the 3 day pass next time we are in town. Totally worth it. IF you get tired, just hop the bus.
